Here is your benchmark workout for the upcoming “300″ – 42 Day KB Challenge.

“300″ – 42 Day KB Challenge <<== apply here

The idea behind this workout is that it gives you a great “benchmark” to measure your progress.

We do it both at the beginning and end of the Challenge, so you can see if you can do better push ups, more swings, etc.

What makes the Challenge unique is that we have a very specific, progressive plan that is going to help you actually get better and stronger and DO better at the workout, at the end of the 6 weeks.

(And in the process, you will end up losing fat, gaining muscle, and getting into fantastic shape.)

Plus, there is a ton of accountability – you check in every time you work out, and we actually keep track of who is checking in and make sure to reach out if you don’t – so it helps you actually DO the workouts too :)

Okay – here we go:

300 KB Challenge Workout

by admin on May 20, 2019

Did you ever see the movie 300?

Gerard Butler and the rest of the cast were RIPPED:

One of the workouts – written by Mark Twight, their trainer – circled around the internet and gained some popularity after the move came out.

It’s a 300 rep, fast-paced, metabolic-conditioning style session that includes both barbell work and some bodyweight / gymnastics moves.

I think it actually played a role in popularizing this style of training, around 10 or 12 years ago.

If YOU want to get ripped like the cast of 300, I have a 300 rep kettlebel and bodyweight workout for you to try that’s done in the style of the original … but all you need to do it is a single kettlebell and your own bodyweight.

Check it out below.

And if you like the workout, stay tuned for our upcoming 6 week “300 KB Challenge” program – we’ll be accepting applications starting tomorrow:


300 Kettlebell Challenge Workout

Suggested KB weight: 12k/16k (women), 20k/24k (men)

And powerful.

Just like the original “300″ workout, but with a kettlebell twist.

Thank you Mark Twight for the inspiration!

Today, I have 1 tip that will help your kettlebell swings, cleans, and snatches!

You see, a very common mistake people make when doing these exercises is to bend the elbow when the KB comes down on the swing.

Watch the video for examples.

One of the things this can do is cause stress on the elbow, and eventually cause pain.

A simple cue and fix is to simply think about flexing the tricep (muscle on the back of the upper arm) when the KB swings down. This will make it so that you cannot flex your bicep (muscle on the front of the upper arm) and end up bending your elbow and causing that stress.

Give that tip a try, and hope it helps!

[new video] the “Top Down” Kettlebell Press

May 2, 2019

The kettlebell press is different from a barbell or dumbbell press. This is because of its offset nature (the weight of the KB rests against the back of the arm). This is a GOOD thing – because when you press a kettlebell, you are getting a great shoulder stability workout as your rotator cuff has [...]
