Check out this month’s edition of Golf Today Northwest!  You might recognize a familiar face showing a few awesome kettlebell exercises that are safe for almost everyone.

The kettlebells have quickly become one of my favorite training tools.  They are so versatile and much more comfortable on my hand then the dumbbells.  But the best part is how they can transition from being used as a means to increase the heart rate, to a strength training tool, to stability and even power!  It’s hard to find one piece of equipment that can accomplish so much.

And in case you were looking for a few other ideas on what to do with a kettlebell, here are a few of the exercises I have posted this year on the blog!

#metconmonster Day 4 update:  I took on the “Pull Up Queen” today.  It looks like this…

30 second sprint, 10 pull-ups, 10 Jump Squats, 10 Kettlebell Swings x 8 for time.

Once again, the sweat was pouring in just a short 12 minutes, and I’m pretty sure on that last set of pull-ups, I may or may not have started to feel a little nauseous (I’m puke free since 1993, so it’s going to take a little more than a few pull-ups to make me sick!)

The funny part is that I had every intention of taking today off, but my body felt great and actually was craving a workout.  We’ll see how I feel tomorrow especially with 3 days of golf ahead of me.

Happy Friday Eve!
