New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
A Way To Stay Fit & Motivated During The Coronavirus Quarantine
There's few better home workout tools than a kettlebell, and during my own personal quarantine (details on why I'm quarantining and other coronavirus tips here), I decided to put the finishing touches on my Russian Kettlebell Certification, and here's the video to prove it:
You can get your own kettlebell here, sign up for the same kettlebell certification I trained for here, and get 7 days of free kettlebell workouts (or earn a certification) from my favorite kettlebell resource Kettlebell Kings here. A big thanks to my friends and former podcast guests Joe DiStefano and Chris Holder for the excellent coaching and tips. Now I need to hunt down my next physical challenge to stay motivated…feel free to let me know in the comments section what you'd recommend. Incidentally, another excellent way to upgrade your body during the quarantine is this 21 Day Breathwork Program (save 20% with code: BEN) I'm taking my kids through, designed by another former podcast guest, Niraj Naik. That oughta keep you busy for a bit. :)
Yet Another Fun Tool To Play With If You're Stuck At Home
I've been teaching my kids how to do headstands and handstands, and recently discovered the FeetUp Trainer. This thing gives you a safe and fun way to learn a ton of different inversion moves, and is a great tool for upgrading your yoga game. You get to enjoy all the benefits of inversions right away without pressure on your neck or spine! You can use the FeetUp trainer to:
- Master inversions safely and easily, within minutes
- Build strength, flexibility, and balance
- Enrich and refresh your practice with countless new FeetUp® Asanas and bodyweight exercises
Avoid risking an injury, stressing your neck, and compressing your spine while practicing classic headstands, and struggling/limiting your handstand practice. Protect your body and take your practice to a new level with the world's first personal yoga trainer for inverted postures, bodyweight fitness, and inner balance.

Free Virus & Immunity Q&A Webinar
If you follow me on Twitter, then you'll see that every day I'm publishing as many helpful coronavirus resources as possible, and also sending out links to free audio webinar calls I am scheduling at random points throughout the week to answer your questions on all things virus and immune system. Here's the link to my latest recording from my Monday, March 14 coronavirus Q&A, and here is a link to a helpful resources document that I'll update each time I do a new call.
Enjoy, and please remember: I'm not a doctor and this is not to be taken as medical advice. On these calls, I'm simply sharing exactly what I'm doing for myself and my family. Enjoy!

::: Save 10% On Delicious, Healthy, Paleovalley Grass-Fed Beef Sticks :::
I'm always on the lookout for a good brand of jerky to keep around as a quick go-to, healthy, shelf-stable snack. If you too are in need of a protein-packed, flavorful pick-me-up, then look no further than Paleovalley's delicious, nutritious, clean, minimally-processed 100% grass-fed beef sticks.
These little fellas are the jerky equivalent of crack cocaine, and while many products claim to be healthy, using all the buzzwords such as gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, natural and more, the sad fact is those products are also relatively nutrient-free (free of the minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants that promote thriving health).
These are the ONLY beef sticks in the United States that are made from 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef and organic spices that are naturally fermented—so they contain gut-healthy probiotics for an extra boost in immunity.

Muscle feeds muscle baby. Time for a little post kettlebell workout @uswellnessmeats ribeye on the @traegergrills smoker. Tonight my rub is cayenne pepper, black pepper, Kona black sea salt, and finely ground @kion coffee. Smoke for an hour with a little bit of olive oil drizzled on top and then finish with a four minute sear on each side for a perfect rare plus. How do you like your steak? #feedthebeast
