This week's episode features a unique question and answer session.
I asked what questions you had and people responded with many great questions that I wanted to share on this week's episode.
Here's some of what you'll learn about in episode 79:
What muscle do you think is critical for performance in kettlebell training, powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting, bodybuilding, or to achieve ultimate athleticism in any sport?
It should be pretty obvious that would be the gluteus maximus.
If you fail to tap into the power of this muscle, you'll greatly limit your training performance and results.
We really can't emphasize the importance of the glutes enough in performance training and for developing the ultimate athletic body.
In this week's show, I'll discuss 9 important recovery methods to improve your training performance and maximize results.
We train hard and we want results, but if we aren't recovering properly we're limiting our outcomes.
Post workout recovery is one of the most overlooked, but important factors in a successful training program.
We need to make sure we do everything we can to recover appropriately between workouts for our long term training success.
What is mastery?
As George Leonard, the author of Mastery describes it, it's a process or a journey.
For me, that's been one of the major benefits with kettlebells, barbells, and movement based training.
That's why I'm so passionate about training as it's always about the process and the evolution.
In this week's podcast session, I'll discuss the benefits of double kettlebell training.
Why train with double kettlebells and how do you know when you're ready?
I'll answer these questions and tell you everything you need to know about the impact of training with two kettlebells instead of just one.
I wanted a simple training session template that could be used at any time to build and develop the core kettlebell skills.
So, I recently designed this simple single kettlebell workout that incorporates the 6 kettlebell fundamentals.
This is a great training session for beginners through advanced, providing you already know how to safely perform the kettlebell fundamentals.
Carl Paoli is this week's guest and he's the author of an amazing new book titled "Free+Style: Maximize Sport & Life Performance with Four Basic Movements."
Carl is a former elite gymnast and has incredible experience in movement and performance based training.
He's also the creator of GymnasticsWOD.com and he's an innovative strength and conditioning coach, as you'll discover in this interview session.
The barbell had me at hello.
No doubt, it was the barbell that hooked me some 30 odd years ago and basically I've never looked back.
Sure, I've had my peaks and valleys throughout my training journey, but looking back now it was my old barbell set that started this entire process.
