I first decided to get a heart rate monitor after reading Marty Gallagher’s book the Purposeful Primitive. I have been using it a lot in my training lately, this video details a little bit on how.

A common question I get is “how many calories do you burn using kettlebells?”
Obviously there are a lot of factors involved, but in the, I show you how many calories i burned in a singles session of Hardstyle Kettlebell Swings.

1607 in one hour and three and a half minutes.

This rate of burn is TYPICAL for me. I do this 4-5 times each week from 20-75 minutes and the number of calories oxidized is consistently between 24 and 28 per minute.
