In a recent blog post, I broke down a new body weight and kettlebell challenge workout for ‘ya.
(If you missed that one, you should take a sec and look at it – it’s gotten a ton of great feedback so far. Click here to check it out it now.)
In that post, I also pointed out that challenge workouts are best done as one-off type sessions, as an “add-on” to your already planned-out kettlebell training program. If you’re trying to lose fat, for example, something like my 30 Day Rapid Fat Loss Kettlebell Solution.
In other words, workouts like these are NOT intended to be randomly done, piecemealed together, and called a workout routine.
This is a mistake I see a LOT of folks make. But it is one you MUST avoid to make continual progress towards your goals.
And, THIS is my #1 workout tip for 2013. Do NOT fall victim to “kettlebell workout ADHD”. Don’t float around from workout to workout, just doing what you feel like for the day, with no real long-term plan. This is NOT the way to make real progress towards your ultimate fitness goals.
As you well know, there are a TON of different approaches to follow to reach your fitness goals. And the truth is, a lot of them will work. There probably really is no “one” best way.
The key is picking one that resonates with you and STICKING TO IT for a period of time.
For example, if you are looking for rapid fat loss, look at my 30 Day Rapid Fat Loss Kettlebell Solution system. If you are advanced and want to take your workouts to the next level, do something like my Extreme Kettlebell Cardio Conditioning program. If you have other goals, pick a routine from this page. Or from somewhere else for that matter. Just make sure it is a well-thought-out, well-researched, backed-by-science, and proven-to-work system.
Review exactly what you are going to do for the next four to eight weeks. Get it on your calendar. Commit to it. Do each workout as prescribed. Give it your all.
You will be AMAZED with the results you get – and you’ll never go back to working out how you “used to” again!
To sum up, for best results in your training, pick a program that’s designed for your specific fitness goals, and stick to it. Do not be distracted by the latest and greatest fitness “thing”, if you are in the middle of one already. Do this consistently, and you will be simply amazed with the results you get in 2013.
That’s it for today. Train hard, thanks for reading, and talk soon -

PPS - Following the advice in this email is going to take some discipline – especially if you are like me, and are easily distracted by the newest, latest and greatest workout “thing”. But if you are currently doing one “thing”, and are not yet ready to move on to the next, you gotta just get your mind right, slap yourself, and get back on track. And that’s all there is to it.
