This has been a long time coming: I’ve created a series of 4-week Kettlebell Sport training programs! So many of you have asked me for programming but can’t afford to do my online coaching, which I totally understand (it’s a big commitment).
The programs do not include technique instruction (stay tuned for a more in-depth program coming later this year), but are perfect if you already know the technique and just want a specific program geared toward a particular Kettlebell Sport lift.
To thank you all for following me and supporting the growth of my blog and social media channels, I’m partnering up with Kettlebell Kings and VIKN Chalk to bring you an awesome giveaway this holiday season.
It’s my 25th birthday today and I’d love for you all to celebrate with me by becoming the best and fittest YOU you can be… so try this workout. Don’t you dare leave out the birthday burpees at the end!

As people all across the globe began to chime in about whether or not women should lift two kettlebells, there was a clear discrepancy between the loudest voices and the female ones – and shouldn’t women’s voices be the ones that count?

Thank you, Brittany, for giving me an opportunity to use your blog to describe the AKA’s Vintage Strength events. Please also accept my congratulations on your North American TALC 16kg record! That seems very appropriate for this post!
