As a personal trainer and the owner of the gym I have noticed a growing desire towards improvement.

I am certain that people will progress with their weight as they go with their training.
Mastering basics of functional training is my main concern.

Here is another variation of Advanced Kettlebell Workout.
This workout incorporates 6 moves. 4 of them use double kettlebells and the other 2 moves are bodyweight (calisthenics) exercises mixed into the routine for active recovery. Lets get into nuts and balls of Advanced Kettlebell Workout.
Any fight is a dynamic encounter. A gun fight at close distances could be the most dynamic of all.
It is extremely important to train the quality of movement behind the gun, which is your actual delivery system for the weapon, until proper movement is natural and second nature. Such practice builds not only obvious benefits to your performance by making your more efficient/effective in your movements, but also deliver some of the less obvious ones, like reducing injuries, making one aware of one’s limitations in movement/mobility aspect and find appropriate compromises to do things safely and with solid mechanics, as well as improving the longevity of the practitioner.
Speaking from a wealth of real-world hard-won experience, Navy SEAL veteran Rich Graham talks about a simple test he conducts during his tactical training courses to gauge movement proficiency of the group.
The video demos a few ways to engage and disengage the Supine position from Standing and back up, while both hands are on the weapon. Of course, these examples are subjective to such factors as tactical, environmental and individual considerations and may or may not be appropriate under different circumstances. Also, many other ways to do this are possible, some faster, some slower, some with one arm holding the weapon, again depending on the tactics, level of strength and mobility, injuries, terrain and other factors. Shown are just some example to illustrate a point.
Try it your way and figure out how you would do it. What are your strength? What are your current limitations? How can you do it efficiently and safely for yourself? Those are great questions to ask yourself before rather then after.

· Bulgarian Split Squat (6 repetitions):
Families all over America will be sitting down to a meal which looks back to that first Thanksgiving in which the Pilgrims commemorated the harvest after a harsh winter. The year was 1621, and Governor William Bradford proclaimed a day of thanksgiving, which the colonists celebrated as a traditional English harvest feast.
George Washington declared Thanksgiving a holiday in 1789, and in 1941 Congress passed a resolution which decreed that the holiday should fall on the fourth Thursday of November.
Feasting together is as old as the human race. It is a way of celebrating and enjoying time with family and friends. But if we are not careful, we can overdo the festivities and end up setting ourselves back over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
Just how big is your meal? [Read more…]
