Knocked out a kettlebell / bodyweight workout earlier this morning in my garage … I was listening to the Rocky 4 Soundtrack of course … and that’s when it hit me … Rocky trains with KBs!
(If you haven’t seen Rocky Balboa, you gotta watch it. It’s actually probably my 3rd favorite of all the Rocky movies (after 1 and 4). I was surprised, since Stallone hadn’t made a Rocky movie for at least 20 years when it came out … but def worth checking out!
Anyway, Stallone is in GREAT shape in the flick, and he’s at least 60, if not older.
Could his secret to getting in such amazing shape, even at 60+ years old, been training with KBs?
It very well may have been!!
And word is on the street that Stallone is working on a NEW Rocky film, scheduled for release at the end of 2015 … and if I were a betting man, I’d guess that he’s using KBs to get into top shape for this one, too.
