Proper Kettlebell Swings

 When different fitness trends become popular, it is very easy to get caught up in fitness routines and programming that make no sense or, worse yet, that are harmful for your body.  One of the most popular trends in the early 2000s was the “kettlebell” trend.  Kettlebells have been around for centuries, since the early 1700s if my memory serves me correctly, but, to this day, they still are not used correctly in certain areas of exercise programming.

How to Best Reward Yourself in Life

Over the years that I have spent since my life changing event of blowing out my knee, and realizing what it means to truly be hurt and know your weaknesses. This event in my life taught me how much of a challenge it is to get back on your feet after life has knocked you down and knocked you out.  The big question is, "Do you want it bad enough?"  As Rocky said, "...But it aint about how hard you're hit.  It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.  How much can you take and keep moving forward?
