Kettlebell workouts that have a story. Workouts that motivate. Workouts that can be adjusted.
In this ebook I provide an adventure, a story, motivation, education, the best workouts, all combined. I include photos of my own adventures to give you the sense to want to explore, to make you feel like you were there. All photos are real there is no photoshop or tricks, if you see me on a 3,500-meter high mountain with a kettlebell, I lugged it there, if you see me under a waterfall with a kettlebell, I climbed down and in the process might have unintentionally hurt a kettlebell or two.
This ebook is targeted to at-home kettlebell enthusiasts, MMA and BJJ fighters, and crossfitters that use their open box time for kettlebell WODs. This book is even for budding trainers who want to know more about the Cavemantraining programs, and learn the basics on how to run them.
