Hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving yesterday! Now it’s time to get after the Black Friday Shopping Craze.
Here are my Top 5 Black Friday Fitness Gift Ideas and Reviews for the workout fanatic in your life…
What says “From Russia with Tough Love” better than this all-in-one fat loss secret weapon cannon ball with a handle? That’s right. The Russian Kettlebell.
What to look for in a kettlebell…
-Proper balance point of weight to handle
-Thicker handles for added grip strength
-Handle and Body (Bell) cast as one unit (some companies weld their handles on…spells disaster)
-Avoid plate-loaded or selectorized kettlebells for overhead lifts…that is a safety miscue waiting to happen
-Paint job. Paint should be a textured epoxy to avoid chipping and wear very nicely as you reach your 100,000 snatch rep
-Backed by a Satisfaction Guarantee
There is a HUGE discrepancy in the quality of kettlebells on the market so choose wisely. By far, the highest quality kettlebell is made by Dragon Door. I know…I own about 120 of them.

-Bands constantly engage your CORE. Both Upper and Lower body exercises will require you to engage more of your core in order to stabilize against the resistance.
-Create resistance from ALL angles. Front, behind, side, low, high, overhead, below…every possible angle.
-Progressive Resistance. The more you expand the band the harder it gets. Resistance Bands are the ONLY exercise tool that offer this.
-Increased coordination. Due to progressive resistance, stabilizers come into play much more.
-Great for all fitness levels.
-Inexpensive. Most bands are between $20-70 for a set
-Color-coding for the different tension levels (light, medium, heavy, very heavy)
