How do you like the k-bell workouts? I'm very intrigued by that.
Hello & Welcome!
I'd also like to hear more about KBs.
KBs are a powerful training tool. You cannot get as strong as on olympic lifter but the strength-endurance component of it is unbelievable. One time I threw up during a KB workout. It's very intense. You are getting a cardio workout that begins as heart thumping and goes up from there. My heaviest kb lifting was with a 40lb KB in each hand but I was doing multiple speed sets and the physical aftermath is hard to explain. You get a real high from it. For one thing it lowered my blood pressure to 100 / 64 which is important. It also made me feel like I could conquer the world or succeed in any sport.
Mike Mahlers DVD is where I would start - you can get it at dragon door. http://www.dragondoor.com/dv022.html
If you want more exercises get the new KB core strength DVD by stephen maxwell.http://www.dragondoor.com/dv027.html
My favorite excercise from Mahler is the deck squat which is brutal but he also has very hard exercises in his original DVD:http://www.dragondoor.com/dv035.html
It used to be called KBs for mixed martial arts that was the title when I bought it.
KBs offer a lot of room to advance when you consider that can go up to 140lb or so per KB. If you want a plate-loaded version look here:http://www.fractionalplates.com/cgi-bin ... logno=10.3
I'm not strong enough to need them but they're an option for you.
Welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ya, a hot vegan woman is definitely the kick in the pants some people need to match their actions with the colour of their heart.
Yes. There's nothing more enjoyable and motivating than a beautiful woman.
Thank you very much I've been to your site and love your photos.
I know Mike and Casey....well, I've been in touch with them both for a few years and I've spoken with Casey since she was one of our first featured vegans on www.veganbodybuilding.com
I also look up to Mike. I have one of his DVDs and he was actually going to be in Vegan Fitness Built Naturally but had a scheduling conflict and was unable to be part of our movie...
Casey is so off the hook I get gooey just seeing her picture on the web. I might actually faint or be totally speechless if I met her. Her physical beauty is amazing and her eyes just shine - a window to a beautiful soul.
I remember years ago I saw this preview for an IMAX movie about Michael Jordan and his coach Phil Jackson was saying "He's a real-life hero." That's how I would describe Mike Mahler.
Hi and welcome!
Thank you so much.
