"Greater" Synergy Kettlebell Workouts 1-12

We have thoroughly enjoyed the past two weeks' theme change-up by being little shorties and now we are ready for a GREAT 2-weeker. So I present to you "Greater". The theme perspective points say it so well and what great thoughts to keep our minds growing ever stronger during our theme over the next couple weeks as well. Ready... Here you go! Greater

"Greater" Perspective Points

We all have something greater within us. Now is the time to stop holding on to the negatives in our lives and let our greatness shine.

We want to encourage all of you to bring your hurts, stresses, fears, and frustrations to the gym and leave them here. There are great things happening inside us and if we let go of the "stuff" holding us down we will climb higher and GREATER.

Embrace and use these workouts as your outlet. Be a better you, become greater today!

GREATER CHALLENGE: Think this week two areas, 2 very specific areas, how you will take your fitness or your nutritional habits to the next level. I would love to hear a response in the comments below of what your thoughts are.

Here's a sample similar to one of the workouts we will be doing in Greater.

But first here is our warmup & cooldown series because it is ALWAYS important to do both surrounding a workout. You will get a much, much richer training experience because your body will be less prone to injury as well as become more loose and flexible rather than hard and tight.

"The Movement" Synergy Kettlebell Workout Theme

Here is our brand new workout theme at Synergy Kettlebell. Just like our theme that we just wrapped up, "Rocktober Fest" it will be a 1 week theme. (Normally our themes are 2 weeks.) These are some of my favorite workouts though and both training styles from each theme will surely be revisited again because they are such a great concept. Did you enjoy the unique music segment during Rocktober Fest? I know our Synergy Kettlebell members did! They have been talking about how they've been really enjoying it every time I walk through the gyms. The Movement

"The Movement" Theme Perspective Points

During this theme we will be focusing directly on movements that will center in on strength endurance and overall work capacity.

Our goal is to ratchet up the strength side of things so we get increase in overall full-body strength first and foremost. We will do this through a simultaneous body specific and well-rounded fitness approach right in the same workout.

We will have a unique focus on key compound Kettlebell movements and a General Physical Preparedness (GPP) burst style circuit mixed into each workout every day.
