One main advantage that kettlebells have over dumbbells is that you don’t need a wide range of weight increments to create a workout with them.

One or two 10-14 kgs weights if you’re a woman, or 16-20 kgs if you’re a man, will get it done for most people.

The following workout requires two kettlebells, although some exercises are done with one...

For those times when you just can't manage your normal exercise routine use this minimalist 15-20 minute workout to stay in shape. It's also one of my favorite hotel workouts if you are traveling (you can do it in your room if you don't have access to a gym).

This is a great bodyweight circuit that you can do anywhere.

Perform - 6-8 rounds (no rest...

As promised, here is part 2 with the next 25 tips... 

26.  Get a program and stick with it. Don't make your own unless you're a professional. Am I bias? Maybe... but I'll stick to it. Most people get bored so fast that they keep changing up programs and never get anywhere. The whole muscle confusion has been taken too far. How about progressive ov...

[IMPORTANT] In order to make this list useful I'd advise you to print it out and even if just 5 things that you DO in the next 30 days it will make a difference.
