How heavy your kettlebell should be (heavier than you think)

According to Supreme Girya Master Girevik Pavel Tsatsouline, if you’re a man, you really should be swinging at least a 16kg kettlebell and ordering up a 24kg kettlebell and a 32kg kettlebell from Kettlebells USA for not later but for sooner–for soon!

Maybe you should be swinging a much heavier kettlebell

The kettlebells I have been swinging every day have been too light from the beginning. I have been cycling between a 12kg, a 16kg, and a 20kg competition kettlebell but really should have been putting the work in and struggled with my 24kg kettlebell instead. Maybe you’re swinging a kettlebell that’s too light for you.

Sometimes it takes 18-months to motivate enough to commit and get started—and that’s okay!

I have had this timer set up to prompt me to do 90-seconds of kettlebell swings every single hour of the day. I’ve been ignoring it for over 18-months but started doing it again today.

9Round Penrose Studio Gym

9Round is for everyone — I need to remember that

I had been under the weather for upwards of two months with Sinusitis. Even before that, I had been suffering from some sciatica and lumbago back pain. As a result. I started to avoid 9Round. And once I started not spending a measly 30-minutes-a-day doing the rounds at 9Round Penrose, I stopped. The exact thing […]

Out of the frying pan onto water

Remember when I was running 5ks? It seems like only yesterday I was literally kicking ass and taking names at 9Round Penrose and doing Pacers-sponsored 5k races. Well, that took a break. I caught some sort of bug and tried to use my human immune system to fight off the invading armies with sleep, liquids, […]

Action films make for a grand row

While I appreciate UCanRow2’s recent article, 10 Indoor Rowing Workouts to Kill 10K, I must admit that my secret is watching streaming movies off of Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon. Tonight, it was 100% Hulu Plus streaming over Roku onto my Sony Trinitron: Robocop and A View to a Kill. I have some news: after two months […]

Stretching the Quad

Don’t swing your kettlebells without stretching your body

If you’re going to engage in 90-seconds of vigorous kettlebell swings every hour, all day long, every day, even with only a single 12kg kettlebell, then a stretching regimen is essential. I didn’t and I am zombie, limping, Frankenstein’s monster. From now on, stretching and rigorous use of my foam roller and massage stick. Lesson […]
