Quitting the Beast Snatch

Well, I don’t quite look at it that way. Instead, I am switching gears. For years, I’ve pursued the Beast Snatch Test, where I aimed to do 100 snatches in 10 minutes with a 48kg or 106 lb. kettlebell. I’m setting aside this goal…for now. I don’t see this as a failure, just something I […]

Which Set and Rep Scheme is Best?

Got a couple of questions around the same topic: “I would be interested in suggested set/rep strategies for different goals using body weight exercises. I am currently working my way to a 100 push-up set. I’ve been adjusting sets, reps, and rest. I’m reading about conflicting strategies. i.e. 3-9 sets throughout the day, everyday, in […]

Hercules + Muscle + Hypnosis = Awesome

I wanted to share this recent workout with you. 112 snatches with the 40kg (88 lb.) kettlebell in 10 minutes. Not only was that an overall record, but I also did more reps at every minute mark within that time frame. (That’s something I’ve been looking at as far as progress is concerned with this […]

Progressive Eating

Yesterday, we discussed my plans to gain some muscle to help with my training goal, and how you might want to gain or shed the weight for your goals. (If you missed that you can find it on the blog here.) If gaining some muscle helps you, then training is one part of the equation. […]

Many kettlebells for training

Mass with Kettlebells

I’m putting on some muscle. I’ve known I should do this for a while, but I’m finally doing it. Why? Because adding some muscle to my frame will help me hit my main goal with the beast snatch test. What about for your goals? Recently, fasting over the new year and traveling (I know some […]

Don’t Make ANY Resolutions for 2015

With the New Year on the horizon lots of people are thinking about their resolutions. Are you? I’m not…but let me explain. New Year’s resolutions are notorious for failure. Something like 95% of people don’t keep their “resolutions” beyond January. For many its not even two weeks. Why would you want to be attached to something […]

Are you hitting your training goals?

This is an important question to ask. Are you hitting your training goals? If you are then great, keep doing what you’re doing. If not, then something is wrong and something needs to be changed. Everyone promises you that you’ll add inches to your biceps, pounds to your squat, and able to do complex gymnastic […]
