10 Apr How To Excel In Anything And Avoid Being Average

There's no doubt that one the biggest training mistakes when I started out was that I wasn't training to improve my performance. I was training for other reasons. Honestly, I never understood the importance of technique or pursuing the path to mastery. Today, it's a completely different story and I want to share with you a lesson I wish I knew years ago. The greatest thing about chasing excellence is that you can perpetually improve yourself, your skills, your results, and your life in so many ways. In today's world, the truth is that people mostly live without developing themselves physically anywhere near their full potential. Why?

01 Apr How To Smash The Kettlebell Snatch Test (And Keep Calm And Cool Under Pressure)

I vividly remember my first "official" kettlebell snatch test with Pavel (and the previous RKC) back in 2010. Many times before I had performed a snatch test, but not when it counted - as it did at the certification. I'll be honest, I had some jitters before stepping up to snatch that bell. No doubt, there's pressure when you're being timed (and judged) to snatch 100 reps with a 24 kilo kettlebell in 5 minutes. The backstory was that I had been well prepared and had nailed the snatch test countless times prior to doing it at the RKC. No doubt, I was ready to go. Yet, why was I anxious about it? Why do so many others seem to get "freaked out” when it comes time for the vaunted snatch test? Well, there’s a stigma to it - even though it’s only a very small part of the kettlebell certification experience.
