If you have ever read the book intervention, you will know that there are some very challenging workouts in there. Dan John is masterful at making workouts that are simple but not easy. So after using some of them and having my student do the same, I have decided to use one of them for you my reader’s weekly kettlebell workout.

As always this is a very challenging but very simple workout that will chisel you out of stone, build toughness, strength and work capacity in a minimal time commitment but produce lasting results!

Weekly Workout: The Eagle

Once again this workout has only two moves and will work your whole body. It is done by doing 8 kettlebell front squats and walking 50 to 100 steps with farmer walks and squatting right away again. The goal of this workout is to finish all 8 rounds without setting the bells down, but keeping your form.

Men use 16 kg to 24
Ladies 12 to 20 kg


There are also some different than usual rules for this workout. One: as soon as you set the bells down, you are done. Two: if you can finish it, you didn’t use enough weight. Make sure that you are using the right load and not setting the bells down, unless you want to be finished.





  • Do all of your sets and reps with quality form. Crap only produces crap!
  • Breathe by matching your breathing with each pattern
  • Rest as much as you need to and no more.
  • Tough it out while working out ( keep in mind the results)
  • Enjoy the fat blasting effect  and raised metabolism.
