Best way to get ripped with kettlebells
Kettlebells will definitely help you in your pursuit of getting ripped. Pick exercises that involve whole body into action. In the other words most metabolically demanding exercises. Squats, Clean & Presses, Clean & Squats, Swings, Snatches. You can try pairing different exercises. For example, perform Swing, then Clean, then Clean & Press, then Snatch. It's one rep. Also you can try interval training. Try 15:15 or 30:30 work/rest ratio. You can alternate your kettlebell exercises with jump rope. There is no best way. All ways are acceptable and effective. If you want to get ripped then focus on your diet at first place. Drink plenty of water. Eat less carbs. Eat less overall. Implement short rest intervals in your training. Getting ripped is more a matter of discipline than using kettlebells.

Does Paul Wade exist?
People keep asking me: "Hey, Alex, I'm so interested in sandbag training. How can I get started?" The answer is simple as sandbag is: "Make a sandbag!"
So I'm here to clarify things for you. How can you make a sandbag? There are two different ways.
Both methods begin identically. At first, take a bag, preferably army duffel bag or any bag made of tight material (for example, a bag made of canvas). It's cheap, heavy duty and you can find something like this almost everywhere. If you're so ghetto that you find even this expensive then you can use construction-style bags. Here in Ukraine they cost approximately $2. To tell you the truth, my first sandbag was made of couple of such construction-style bags and I wasn't complaining. Playing rough is ultimately necessary for survival in our country. Ok, the outer bag is ready.
