So I’ve been a bit slow in getting this out, but it’s only because I’ve been slammed on both the training front and responding to huge email and social media inquiries regarding this book. If you’re just now tuning in and aren’t familiar with what I’m talking about I’ll catch you up to speed. Two weeks ago I was fortunate to be a part a huge project by becoming a contributing author to my friend Matt Bacak’s book Everyday Heroes 2.
After 15 years of coaching experience, training courses, continuing education, and many other levels of professional and personal development the one single variable that matters most when it comes to building on one’s fitness, strength, and performance is our state of mind. The mental side of life is what carries us. It’s the catalyst and the sustainability of a given behavior. Mental toughness is in short supply these days, but it’s not something that is completely extinct.
Over the years ballistic strength development has seemingly been a lost art with a great deal of the fitness community. Granted many box gyms, MMA gyms, and individual trainers and coaches are working to inject this particular form of physical training back into the fabric of many programs. After all, ballistic strength movements are great for keeping the blade (your body) sharp, for keeping your mind honed, and for training us for real life situational fitness should such a moment arise.
When it comes to selecting a lift to complete an intelligently designed strength program I’m a firm believer in looking at the kettlebell press. This is a lift that is unique in it’s own way simply because of the awkward nature that it presents to every respected lifter. Today I want to take a moment to dive a little deeper into the details of the press.

The Many Faces Of Strength…What’s Yours?
Strength has many faces, even more than two! I’ve always enjoyed the villain Two-Face in the Batman comics (pictured above). I just thought it would be an eye catching and semi-pertinent photo for the post at hand. Nonetheless the faces I’m addressing aren’t that of a hero and a villain, but that of the physical abilities that are associated with the human body. Strength is the focus of this episode my friend so keep on reading and after you are finished share this with everyone you know! Enjoy.
