If you haven't combined the power of these two "unconventional" tools, you are missing out.
The kettlebell is a world-renowned strength and stability creator, and the battle rope is a world-renowned finisher...but the concepts that these two tools are known for, is only telling a fraction of the story.
With the right coaching and programming these two tools can fill entire libraries of effective and efficient programs that build strength, coordination, efficiency, mobility, endurance, power, and cognitive focus.

Person 2 - "I am so flowing right now." (Really into a video game)
Person 3 - "I am flowing." (Gives dog a treat...)
