As much as I love to rip a shit ton of weight off the ground, the barbell can be a pain in the ass sometimes, loading the plates on, taking them off, yadda yadda. It’s very time consuming. This is another reason why I love kettlebells, and why they are my first love; one kettlebell is a simple, compact package of strength, cardio, and power training all rolled into a space saving… Read More
