Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

http://static.rateyourmusic.com/album_images/40fb2225d03b692f5c3750d2af532cf4/3183950.jpgThrough our working relationships, we sometimes find ourselves truly connected to those that we work with. After time we just can't imagine working with anyone else; no one else could even live up to your expectations of your current boss, right? This is especially true if you have been working closely with this person for an extended period of time. For many, this is even true with a supervisor, especially for those that have to work closely to that supervisor on a regular basis, such as a personal secretary, or even a co-manager of a retail establishment. If you find that you truly like your boss, and can be quite difficult if they are looking at leaving to another company/organization.

The reality however, is that if you were close enough with your old supervisor and you have the qualifications, you can easily communicate your desires to change jobs with them. In doing so, you may find that you are even able to make the move to the new company.

Federal Law Enforcement Agency Incorporates Kettlebell Training

I recently had the opportunity to interview three federal law enforcement agents about their personal and professional training with kettlebells. The agency is now part of the new Department of Homeland Security and their mission requires that they maintain a high level of fitness. Within the past year they have incorporated kettlebells into their physical training (PT) for both new recruits and the more seasoned tactical operators. One of the agents works in the Special Operations Training Section and is a former tactical operator, one works as a Fitness Director for new agent recruits, and the other is also a former operator from a tactical assault team. Each was Russian Kettlebell Challenge TM certified by Pavel at their training facility. I chose these three agents because they each have individual goals and participate in different sports and activities. Each one has a different body type and uses a different weight training style.

Kettlebells are a Russian Old School training device that looks like a cannonball with a handle on it. They were traditionally used by the Russian Special Forces and Olympians. They are currently being used by some U.S. special forces, federal law enforcement agencies and SWAT teams. Kettlebells can be used for weight training, flexibility, and to increase strength and cardiovascular endurance. It is great for increasing core strength which produces sound tactical performance, increased speed and agility.
