Kettles kick butt!

At first I was a bit hesitant to purchase the kettlebell, after seeing some pretty scary training sessions (we will leave the gym unknown here) where a trainer was letting a client use a kettlebell and I was just waiting to see the clients shoulder pop out of it’s socket.  Needless to say the kettlebell’s…

Yawning:Monkey See-Monkey do…

Ever wonder why when we see someone yawn, then repeat it, even if we aren’t tired why that is?  Is this something conscious or subconscious?
