After getting the American Kettlebell Club's training book, I have really grown to love the "long cycle" kettlebell exercise, the KB Clean & Jerk. I know that KB Snatches can snap the hell out of you and do something great for you, but C&J's I'm really starting to grow with love for.
The C&J can be done with 1 or 2 kettlebells, but I prefer using just 1 to do one side at a time. This way I have one arm/side that gets some active recovery, while the other one's being… Continue

On January 27, we conducted our third Combat Hard Combative Skills demonstration at East Paulding High School in Dallas, Georgia.

My thanks to Jeff Edwards for facilitating this opportunity, to all the coaches at East Paulding who took the time to observe our program in action, and to the football players who gave… Continue

Has anyone used an elliptical cross-trainer to replace their running during the 'off-season' times of winter? I know in some cases, EXT's (Elliptical Cross-Trainers) are needed for some, due to their low/non-impact status for training.
However, I truly feel for the everyday runner & aspiring fitness enthusiast who wants to improve their overall fitness, they could be holding you back.
Why? Because of the EXT's non/low-impact variable. If you want your body to become… Continue

How much display of affection is sufficient with my former players during postgame… Continue

I have been reading Keeping The Faith a story about college footballs worst team Trinity Bible College and came across this poem.
Halfbacks dance and halfbacks flirt, while linemen crawl and eat dirt
When game time comes, backs run the ball.
When glory comes, they get it all.
But if 100 yards they gain, it's through the linemen's swear and pain.
While halfbacks cry when they see blood, linemen hide it under mud.
Some backs have moves and others speed,but… Continue

Often times my brother and I sit in the gym and think about how to make great interesting training impliments with normal gym equipment. If you have a barbell and a few clips you can turn it into a 2 inch thick grip dumbbell in less than 5 minutes!
Instructions to make a thick grip dumbbell:
1. Unscrew the pin off of the end of the bar (usually can be done by hand or with an allen wrench unless its a spinning power bar).
2. Load a weight all the way to the end… Continue

They said it couldn't be done.
The "Experts" of the day said that the heart would explode if it were to happen.
A man would collapse & die on the spot, the human body couldn't take it.
The task of covering the Mile in less than 4 minutes was considered at one point to be impossible, as impossible as landing a man on the moon.
(Sometimes Experts can be so silly...)
One man defied all that: Sir Roger Bannister. He's the first runner to… Continue
