Before we begin- F.A.Q’s
How long should the training sessions take?
Workouts will take about 45 minutes. Some will be a little shorter – think 30 minutes – others will go a little longer; about an hour.
How many days a week should i train?
During weeks 1-3 you will train three days during the week. Ideally, this will take place on Monday, Wednesday, Friday. However, you are free to structure your training days to accommodate your schedule.
During weeks 5 and 6 you will train four days during the week. Ideally, this will take place on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Again, you are free to structure your training days to accommodate your schedule.
How long should I rest between Rounds and Circuits?
For the most part rest periods are specified. When there is no rest period given move fast, but don’t hurry. Form and safety come first, so make sure you nail the technique before you worry about your speed. During each circuit or set keep rest periods to 60 seconds max. Then, between circuits and sets rest for up to 3 minutes.
What if I can’t keep up with the Training Schedule?
If the training schedule doesn’t work for you, make it work. Try not to skip workouts. Instead, you can get them in when you can.
What about unfamiliar exercises and learning form?
If you don’t know how to perform an exercise or are not sure what it is reference the video library here: videos. If you can not find the exercise there, you can always search our YouTube channel, send us an email or text us. Please visit the contact page for more details.
What about nutrition?
You can’t out train poor nutrition, but there’s no secret diet – it’s called willpower. 80% of the time eat real food; lean meat, veggies, fruit, nuts and seeds. Don’t eat foods that come out of a box or bag; no grains, bread, sugar or starch. If you want a more detailed look at nutrition check out our healthy eating guide.
What Equipment Do I Need?
All you need is your bodyweight and a kettlebell or two. If you are going to purchase a kettlebell please visit our store. We offer amazing customer service and the sales let us keep offering plans like this for free.
