This post is an ode to the Kettlebell, the portable iron gym.
As posted yesterday, for the past year Pavel Tsatsouline’s excellent ‘Simple & Sinister’ Kettlebell workout book has been my go-to functional strength (and cardio!) workout method, combined with rope skipping.
When doing the simple (but not necessarily easy!) exercises from Pavel’s book, I can immediately (and for a good week after!) feel the positive effects on my stamina, strength, mobility and posture – which is not surprising, as all of these are very closely linked.
For a peek into the mind of Mr. Pavel, check out this highly informative interview by Balance Athletics.
A Quote from the interview that caught my eye:
An average person has a much greater capacity than they think they have.
