A lot of people think kettlebells are just for fat loss and conditioning.
And they are great tools for those goals!
But if you know what you are doing, you can use them to build strength, too.
For example, we use kettlebells to help you both gain strength AND lose fat at the same time in our upcoming “Dirty 30’s” – 28-day KB Challenge.
It’s called “Dirty 30’s” because we have you doing 30-rep “chipper”- style workouts to shred fat and jack up your metabolism for the rest of the day.
But we’re also working things in like the method covered in today’s video to help you gain serious strength, too.

get KB STRONG with “Cluster” Training [new video]
Cluster training is a great tool for adding strength and muscle. Here’s how it works:
Instead of doing sets of straight reps, you do 1 or 2 or 3 reps at a time, set the weight down, then pick it back up and repeat 1 or 2 or 3 more times.
For example. Let’s say I can do 5 reps with a 53 pound KB. Instead of doing all 5 at once, I do 2 reps at a time, resting 10 seconds between efforts, and do that 4 times – for a total of 8 reps.
So now I can do 8 reps with the 53 pounder, instead of 5.
Over time, that adds up to a lot of extra strength and muscle gains.
