This pertains to most people in the fitness industry and also to people who are consistently trying to change their bodies with very little in the way of results. Most media will be wont say, “It takes hours a day and tremendous dedication in order to get a perfect body”. We here at KXT believe in strategic workouts that utilizes the body’s functions to perform at its highest capacity without being overworked and possibly damaged. A study done by the American Council on Exercise examined a typical 20 minute kettlebell circuit against other cardiovascular exercises. The results concluded that during the 20-minute workout, the average calorie burn was 272 calories (or 816 cal/Hr), not counting the additional calorie burn due to the substantial anaerobic effort. After that they estimated oxygen consumption and how many calories they were burning aerobically, and it was 13.6 calories per minute. They also measured the blood lactate, so anaerobically the kettlebell lifters were burning an additional 6.6 calories per minute. They were burning a staggering 20.2 calories per minute (or 1,212 cal/Hr).  That has the equivalency of running a sub 6-minute mile pace. When you put forth substantial amounts of bodily energy like you do in kettlebell workouts you end up giving yourself another bonus that not to many... read more

Corn is Bad, Garbanzo Beans are bad, and Estrogen is bad

It is a daunting task when going to the grocery store when every label seems like a possible threat. You are not alone if you find yourself pausing to read over ingredients. There are many health-conscious people just like you who want only the best sources of nutrients. We want to help you avoid three things in particular with this article. We will explain why we recommend staying away from them and how you will benefit by taking them out of your diet. Corn We have said it before and we will say it again. Corn is bad. In that article we explained the implications of genetically modified organisms. In America corn is the number one utilized GMO we have. We use corn for everything from sodas to cow feed. Corn has been so mass-produced that the product has become saturated in natural sugar. Corn has been genetically altered in order to become the concentrated syrups you put on your snow cone. Corn is in every soda you drink which leads to weight gain and possible weight-related ailments. We suggest more nutrient-rich vegetables that contain less sugar. Hardier, cruciferous such as broccoli has much more benefits than corn and can be prepped (or hidden) into every meal with grace. Garbanzo Beans Chick peas! Garbanzo beans are high in protein. They are commonly used in salads or pureed into hummus. Intrinsically garbanzo beans are not strictly unhealthy at face value. However the ways they are commonly prepared to make them more palatable dampens their nutrition ten-fold.
