The issue is packed with content about how functional training with kettlebells, sandbags, and other objects differs from training for physique, as well as how these unconventional training methods can be used to enhance looks.

The cover features Whitney Miller, beauty queen and Miss USA turned fierce Jiu Jitsu competitor. Her article “From the Stage to the Cage” delves into the differences between training for beauty pageants to training for competition.

Inside fitness guru, Joe Daniels, explains how kettlebells can be used for more than just cardio in “Double Kettlebells For Mass & Strength.” And Mark Smith details his journey from training to look better to training to be better in “From Vanity To Sanity.” In addition learn how professional MMA Fighter turned kettlebell instructor, Danny “Last Call” Castillo took his favorite training method and turned it into a business.

My Mad Methods Editor and Onnit’s Chief Fitness Officer, Mark DeGrasse explains, “Unconventional trainers have to battle one primary misconception about functional training methodologies: you can’t get the physique that you can through conventional methods like bodybuilding. The truth is, you can! We simply choose to focus on a higher purpose for the limited time you have to commit to fitness; that purpose being the pursuit of applicable strength, conditioning, and agility over your entire lifetime. We want you to feel and function better, forever.”

This edition provides proof and knowledge needed to take your workout regimen to the next level while also making it functional and highly effective.
