The other day, we touched on the idea of kettlebell exercise alternatives – that is, scaling or modifying the exercises in a workout, to make them harder or easier, for your own exact fitness level and goals.
Today I want to re-visit this idea – because it’s SO important, for not only safety, but for optimum fat loss results.
See, if you know how to modify a workout to your level, it gives you the ability to perform nearly ANY routine you find – no matter your ability and/or training skill. And this is pretty cool!
For example – in my boot camp classes, I give folks an extreme version, a regular version and a beginner version of every exercise we do. So folks that have been training hard for months or years can pick the hardest version, intermediate-level folks can pick the medium-intensity version, and beginners can pick the “entry level” version.
I have a video for you today – from fellow RKC and fitness expert colleague of mine, Tyler Bramlett – where he breaks down this same concept, but in a slightly different way. ALL of his programs are based around this idea of what he calls “movement progression” … it’s some good stuff. Watch the video and see for yourself:
Thanks for watching, have a great Monday, and talk soon -

PS - If you like the ideas Tyler presented in the video above, definitely check out the sale he has going on all of his programs for the next day or so:
