Bad strength training equipment and poisonous food.

Greg and I did a beginner kettle bell seminar last night at Matrix Strength and Fitness in North Andover for my old friend Art McDermott. When I say old, I don’t just mean we have been friends for a long time, I mean he’s old too. Just Kidding, he’s not much older than me, wait that means he’s old. You might recognize his name; I re-post a lot of stuff from his newsletters.
Art is a great guy and runs a great gym. I’m happy that he trusted us to teach his staff and clients basic kettle bell use. As a matter of fact, I am urging you click this link and read this article.
It is from Art’s newsletter today. Art is a great nutritionist too and he spends a lot of time doing research online to find the latest studies and spread the word.

On another note, one of my equipment vendors sent me this link and asked me what I thought of this piece of equipment.
Don't buy this.

I am horrified at the crap that companies make. Anyone who knows anything about Olympic Weightlifting knows that the bar path is not straight up and down. It is more like an S. Why oh why do people try and reinvent the wheel in the name of safety and profit? I can give you my opinion that all of the machines on this site are a waste of time. You can get doing real cleans and snatches as well as jumps and plyo pushups and medicine ball work for thousands of dollars less that this machine.
When the vendor asked me my opinion, I told him that I would only take one if it was free and I could have it melted down to make 100 pound plates out of the steel.
That’s all for today kids.
