Just Add Water

08.25.11

"Mother mother ocean I have heard your call...in your belly you hold the treasure few have ever saw"...Jimmy Buffet A Pirate Looks at 40. Water is the giver of life. The sustainer of the earth, the primordial fluid our ancestors first crawled out of.

The Whys and Hows of the One Kettlebell Workout

A common request after the HKC is, “Can you give me more workout ideas?” I think that there is a minimum effective dose for each movement of the HKC Three (swing, goblet squat and Turkish get-up).

Intrinsic Excellence: A Leader’s Manifesto

Things have changed. Everyone knows it. It has been this way for quite some time, and yet it’s hard to admit. I didn’t want to admit it at first, until I let myself get used to the idea and the feelings I buried whenever these thoughts came to mind. Why don’t we face this change together and make sense of it all?

You Are the Obstacle to Perfect Movement!

Whether it’s the flutter of our eyelids, the involuntary beating of our hearts, a kettlebell swing, or a gymnast’s full twisting backflip—movement is the signal that we are alive.

“Believe in yourself”, “No fear”, and Other Impossible Instructions

If I want to be awesome, what I am supposed to do? In what order should I do it? And how do I know I have achieved the end goal and fulfilled my purpose for that day? In other words, we cannot simply will ourselves into being awesome, inspiring, and full of self-belief. Instead, these qualities are the results of clear, dedicated, and committed action.

Gluteal Amnesia—And How to Fix It

I often joke to my audience that they’re “sitting on a goldmine.” The glutes might be the most important muscles in the body, but until recently, many have ignored this muscle family. The glutes are the foundation of power and the fountain of youth. Healthy glutes show the world you are young, vibrant and virile.

Welcome to the KETTLE PRT

The PRT acronym derives from the Navy’s Physical Readiness Test administered biannually to all of its personnel. Each branch of the military has a program designed to keep all sailors, soldiers and airmen fit for duty. We organized the KETTLE PRT to provide this sort of meaningful challenge to the civilian world, not only for people like Steve but also for trainers like us. Our friends and family needed this push to rediscover their motivation.

Tailpipe: A New Concept

Usually, just standing while holding kettlebells in the rack position would seem boring, but that all changes when you are trying to catch your breath! All those wonderful "breathing muscles" automatically fire.

Vertical Bird Dog

Recently, someone said they don’t do the bird dog exercise because it “bothers their knees.” I looked at the concrete floor and thought (for once!), “You know, a pad would work here.” But, the pad didn’t solve the problem, and bird dogs still hurt this person’s knees.

Kettlebells Are Cool, But What About My CHEST?

One of the greatest advantages of using kettlebells and bodyweight exercises for chest development is that you’re also working your core, lats and stabilizers at the same time. You aren’t lying on a bench or tethered to a machine trying to isolate your muscles while leaving your core and stabilizers virtually untapped.

Movement Towards Change

The first step towards change is realizing that there is a need or the potential for change itself. Deep down I knew I needed to change, but that rationale was hidden behind disbelief and self-doubt.
