(#250) In this session, I'll answer some common kettlebell training questions.

It's been a while since I've done a listener Q & A session, so here's some detailed answers to some great questions I've received recently.

Here's the questions and topics discussed in the episode:

  • Can you really build muscle by using kettlebells? (Still a common question, here's what you need to know)
  • The best way to use kettlebells with a barbell program? (I'll give some specific ideas here)
  • Kettlebells and barbells - together or separate? (My preferred approach)
  • How can you keep getting results with the kettlebell swing? (Great question & glad it was asked)
  • What are the best kettlebell exercises for shoulder stability? 

If you like the Q & A session, please let me know.
