Belated happy May to everyone, hopefully those of us in New England get to experience actual May type weather sooner rather than later. Let's take a look at where I'm sending you off to today.
Kettlebell Swings Do's and Don'ts- Artemis Scantalides is another one awesome coach we have here in the Greater Boston area. She is an Iron Maiden and just all around badass, especially when it comes to the are of the kettlebells. The KB swing is something everyone can always use help on, even just a tweak, Artemis' post about the KB swing should provide these for all.
3 Quick Fixes for Better Push-Ups- Sticking to the Boston area, Matt Ibrahim is a heck of a brain when it comes to coaching. He's an expert and melding physical therapy practices and strength and conditioning practices. We all like to do and get better at push-ups, I assume at least. His article on Stack this week can unlock the key to why your push-ups are either hurting you, or just not doing the job as they should.
9 Great Ideas to Improve Your Workouts- Getting off the Boston theme, I love me a Dan John article whenever I find them. New and old I enjoy them all. This one's a bit of an oldie, but is full of good ideas and a couple of standards to think about when looking at goal setting.
Hope you all enjoy those, have a good weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there.
