Approximately one year ago (6/10/19) I joined the Caveman Inner Circle kettlebell workout group. I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the most active member of this group. However, reading the progress and enthusiasm of other members every day, my passion for kettlebell training has never subsided. It's refreshing to witness such a diverse group of people hit new goals and really push themselves. Men, women, younger & older folks coming together to improve themselves in multiple ways. It's a family of sorts; one that spreads across several continents and countries.
Nearly a year ago, I wrote an article that discussed rehabbing injuries with kettlebell exercises. It was a topic that fascinated me at the time and one that I still find very intriguing. Apparently, I'm not the only person as it's one of the more popular posts on this site. The research I did for the article concluded that not only can kettlebells help with injuries but pain management as well. This information wasn't opinion-based or speculative but actually came from studies by doctors and physical therapists.
I could go on and on about my time with Skogg System but I've already done so in my review! Instead, I wanted to learn more about the background and history of Michael Skogg as it relates to his kettlebell training. So I reached out to him and requested an interview. He was gracious enough to give me some of his time and answer questions about his program as well as some stories about previous clients. I learned several new things about him that I think you'll find pretty interesting!
Taco Fleur is perhaps one of the most dedicated and passionate kettlebell trainers in the world. He's written several books on kettlebell workouts and exercises that have been well-received on Amazon. In addition to the books, he's produced dozens of videos that help both newbies like me and veterans alike in performing kettlebell moves the right way. Unlike some trainers, he is eager to assist and offer advice for anyone interested in kettlebells.
Unless you've personally used kettlebells, it may be difficult to fully appreciate what athletes accomplish in both preparing for and competing in kettlebell sport. An article from the Daily Citizen caught our attention detailing Wisconsin native Jordan Tyjeski's journey to competing in the Kettlebell Sport World Championship held in Latvia earlier this month. It's a remarkable story that left us wanting more.
