Kettlebells In Action

There is certainly a lot of interest in Kettlebells, and as I was raving about it in my last Post…I can understand why. Having said that I’ve met a few guys, who have never heard of Kettlebells, let alone what great exercise they are.  And a few guys who have actually bought one.  But as they say “never got around to using it”. Well, as I’m literally going from strength to strength in my Kettlebell training, I have done a short video where you can see “yours truly” in action going for the kettlebell burn.  If you are not sure […] Read more »

Kettlebells…The Story So Far

The story so far…It began for me last year.  When surprisingly I discovered Kettlebell Training for the first time, whilst researching Weight and Resistance Training. It seemed to have been under my radar somehow.  I think mainly because I had not been interested in Weight Training.  As I have said in the past, it never really appealed to me.

Last week I talked about Kettlebell Training, and how excited I was about what is turning out to be a truly amazing exercise programme. Even though I am only on Week 2 of the Twelve Week Training, you certainly feel you’ve had a work-out, and I know it’s only going to get better.  The Plan that I’m working to only requires that you do the Routine Three times a week.  Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I usually do the training in the morning after my usual bike ride, as I wanted to add to my fitness routine if you remember, I […] Read more »

Mens Fitness – Take It To Another Level

Ok, Mens Fitness Plan that maintains and builds muscle.  If you read my blog posts last week, I talked about building muscle in your 50’s and beyond and why it’s so important.  And we’d established that the only way to do this as part of a Fitness Plan was to do some form of weight training. Back in March I wrote “When you do free weight training your entire body is supporting the weight”.  And it was this ongoing research to make weight training part of my fitness plan, and find something that I would enjoy and be enthusiastic about, […] Read more »

Muscle For Life

I think you know now you need muscle for life. I’ve just typed out a 12 week Kettlebell Training Plan. Which as I said yesterday I’m pretty excited about. I’ve just started doing a few simple Swing Exercises every day with an 8kg Kettlebell. And am now moving up to a 12kg, which is the recommended weight for a guy to start some serious training with. Watch this space! I seem to have spoken to a lot of people this week regards fitness, and it seems to have come up in all sorts of conversation. Which I must say I […] Read more »
