Do I really even need to describe how to do a pushup, the very basic exercise you've naturally done since an infant? I hope not, but if you need some instruction, I have covered "how to do a pushup" during Challenge 2: Yoga for 30 Days. You can start there.

The real topic of discussion today is the more uncommon exercise known as burpees. If you’ve done them, chances are you absolutely hate them. Just mentioning the name tends to garner eye rolls, groans of dread, evil eyes, general dissatisfaction, shooting groin pain, severe depression, and suicide bombings — Okay, maybe a few of those are made up.

CrossFit HQ ran a question on their Facebook page asking followers, "If burpee had an alternate name, it would be _____." Out of ... Continue Reading

At least she's got the "bent over" part nailed down. Am I right, fellas!?

Bent over rows are used to target a variety of back muscles in addition to your biceps. However, after completing the deadlifts, kettlebell swings, and thrusters in succession, your main goal is going to be not to throw up while holding yourself in the patented vomit position.

Kettlebell swings provide you with the unique ability to experience what it would be like to flail around with 35 lb. testicles all day — otherwise known as "The Chuck Norris Experience."

There is no technique really. The goal is to dry hump the air as furiously as David Duchovny in "Californication" without causing your arms to tear from their sockets due to something called "inertia." This is a full body workout as much as you can imagine swinging a cannonball around the room would ... Continue Reading

There really isn't anything I can say that will make kettlebell thrusters funny — they just aren't. Kettlebell thrusters blend together a squat and shoulder press with all the fun and emotion as having a clown die at your birthday party. That's about as hilarious as it gets. Sorry.

By that description of a kettlebell thruster, you might think the exercise is easy but it's not. Squats are meant to be executed using heavy weights — it's kind of their thing — so, by using such a small of ... Continue Reading

That picture obviously isn't of me — I would NEVER wear shorts that high. But that's exactly how I felt after finishing the first kettlebell workout on April 1st for the Onnit Primal Challenge, which required me to find the MAXIMUM number of repetitions I could perform for all six exercises.

You see, I haven't "worked out" since Challenge #2: Yoga for 30 Days unless you consider watching movies, cooking dinner, and going on a gluten-free diet "working out"; sadly, there are people ... Continue Reading
