Last weekend I had the extreme pleasure of training one of the UK's finest certified kettlebell teachers when he was visiting the U.S. When I first spoke with Steve Dawson about what he was wanting to do when he was here he told me that he is a very well conditioned guy and that I could choose anything I wanted. I smiled and told him that we'd be putting his conditioning to a test.... and we definitely did. Check out the original "Pyramid Of Pain" kettlebell workout and give it a shot yourself.
Here's the workout...
