Free ‘Fat Burning’ Training Plan

Below is a video outlining the program for you to follow. I decided to write this short blog to accompany the video to make the whole thing clearer for you. Let me just clarify a few things first.

Why I Love Intermittent Fasting

OK, maybe LOVE is overstating it, I mean, I love eating food and if the training wheels were off and no consequences could be had I would almost certainly eat continuously for about 15 hours per day (subtract 8 hours for sleep and one hour for swinging some kettlebells) so I definitely love that more, but there's nothing like a bit of clickbait in a blog title.  It seems, however, that this is most people’s problem. They have no control, they eat more than they need and they get fat and sick as a result.

Is weight training REALLY good for you?

Everyone knows that exercise is good for them, but despite that too few people do much of it with any real consistency. Beyond walking to the fridge and back or angrily hammering the keypad on their mobile phone while taking part in some kind of pointless argument on social media. But the health benefits of exercise are incredible, to the point that it really ought to be a prescribed by doctors as a first line of defence against almost all forms of chronic illness.

Are you taking your mental health seriously?

Time is a very convenient excuse that many people use for not doing things that they really ought to be. This is never truer than the case of health and fitness. Be honest, how many times have you said something along the lines of “I want to be (insert fitness goal) but I don’t have time for (insert process)”? You don’t need someone like me to tell you how important it is to eat right and exercise, that’s common sense and if you are honest your instincts tell you this.

Anatomy of an Exercise – The Hardstyle Snatch

The hardstyle snatch is a full body exercise that develops explosive power, especially in the hips and shoulders. It can be used as a strength/power exercise or a cardio exercise. It also acts as a transition to other more complex kettlebell movements. Its origins are come from the world of Olympic lifting, where the barbell snatch is a staple lift alongside the clean and snatch (also adapted to kettlebell training).
