If you could fold a home gym up and keep it in the corner of your closet… would that be cool?

Of course it would!  🙂

And in a way that’s what you get with a kettlebell.

It’s one of the most versatile home training tools if you are limited for space.

And when combined with bodyweight exercise you get a fun, fast paced, fat-burning workout you can do anytime, anywhere.

Recently my family and I spent the week at a cottage near Mont Tremblant, Quebec.

I arranged for my buddy and kettlebell expert Chris Lopez to bring a KB. And I brought a TRX and a jump rope.

Then together we came up with a workout each day that combined the tools we had with some bodyweight exercises. It was fun crafting the workouts on the spot… and it provided a great way to keep our workouts on track even though we were miles from the nearest gym.

Here’s what we came up with on the first day…

Listen, Chris is one of the top experts in North America on kettlebell training. And he has a very unique training method that allows you to workout LESS and lose weight without changing your diet.

Trust me… this guy does not have time for long workouts! He’s got 5 kids and runs a very successful training business AND a podcast for busy dads. 🙂

And just to give you a small taste of Chris’ talents… I also asked him to film some pointers for you on the two kettlebell exercises we used in the workouts above…

Technique Tips For The Goblet Squat and Swing:

Remember: Chris is one of the top experts in North America… and actually gets flown around the continent to give kettlebell workshops. Heck, a well known NBA athlete even flies Chris down to Orlando every month to train him with his unique methods…
