Keith Weber's Extreme KB Cardio

After I finished up with clients this evening, I decided to break out Keith Weber's Extreme KB Cardio DVD. I've only used this DVD once or twice since I bought it last year. I actually did the "ManMaker" and the first couple exercises of the "upper body blast" workout with the 16kg, forcing myself to continue to develop proficiency with all drills using that weight. I was proud of myself for being able to move through such an intense circuit with the 16kg. I was especially proud that the snatches no longer intimidated me. I was pretty amped to get to that part of the workout. Surprisingly, the presses gave me some grief today, and the thrusters wiped me out in the beginning.

I do enjoy this DVD by Keith. From an endurance perspective, it reminds me of AoS Newport. My only issue is that the workout moves very quickly; I'm rarely able to keep up with the instructor. It would also have been nice to have the workout componets displayed either at the start of each workout, as each move was in progress, or both. I did write down the workout, and posted it in my gym so that I can do it at my own pace. Keith is very motivating, though, and is excellent shape. If you're looking for a new DVD to add to your library, I do recommend this one. Personally, I can't (and don't) do the workout in its entirety. I just pick 1 or 2 of the 7 or so programs and work on those.

This DVD contains 7 workouts that can be performed individually or combined into a series of your choosing. The 7 workouts are as follows: the manmaker, the upper body blast, the leg burner, the swing workout, the slingshot, the turkish getup, and a core/cooldown segment. It's good stuff...check it out!

It's been a while...

Wow - I've been so busy this summer that I've barely had time to update my personal blog. My personal training business is going really well. Of course I'm devoting alot of time to my clients. I'm also focusing more energy on my own training as well. I have a really nice rhythm going with my program design, and everyone (including me) gets challenged.

We've been having a fun summer. I will try to update my blog more often. I am doing double duty with my personal blog as well as the ATX Underground Fitness blog. I'm hoping to do Vintage Providence today.

Have a great weekend!
