    It has its merits.

    Kettlebells are a good tool and I use them but they are over-rated. I find they are good for mobility and conditioning but there are better tools for pure strength development.
    I dunno. Maybe I'm just looking for too much "do everything" routines. <shrug>

    Also sounds like you need to focus more on your diet.
    I got big into the diet too. I counted cals and monitored types of cals. Made sure I did high-protein, particularly after exercise. I eliminated simple-carbs, made sure to include nuts, berries, legumes, fresh greens, etc. I ate 6 small meals a day and made sure to give myself one high-cal "cheat" meal a week so that my body wouldn't start restricting itself. My conclusion is that most of the dietary hocus-pocus.

    Pairing the Gotch Bible with Strongfort (and others), along with elliptical/treadmill & diet got me a lot more "fit" and I had "martial endurance" to spare but I never looked like Spiderman and I never felt "badass."

    I dunno. Maybe I just needed a lot more "lift heavy stuff" than I was getting. <shrug>

    Peace favor your sword,
