As busy as life has been, I have been on a big complex kick lately for conditioning. It’s short, simple, difficult, and lets you know you just had an intense session. If a lot of my workouts seem similar, that’s because they are. With each workout I am choosing full body, compound movements (except vertical pulls, I need more pull ups in my day to day) that creates all around conditioning and functional strength which fits my current fitness needs. Below is one set of my complex from this A.M. Remember that this is an advanced style of kettlebell lifting, so you should be well versed in the lifts before attempting.

I am also posting a link to a great article from Geoff Neupert’s website. Geoff is the man when it comes to kettlebell lifting and strength conditioning in general. The article presents a very simple/effective exercise to help alleviate low back pain. It is silly how great it works for as simple as it is. Give it a go and check out Geoff’s other sites for more info on living & lifting well!
