    By admin | In Kettle Beauties & Beasts | on July 23, 2013

    Of all the classic Disney movies, my favorite is “Beauty and The Beast.” It captivated me as a 12-year-old. Perhaps it’s because I could relate to Belle’s character — a misfit who loves to read, wants adventure, and wants much more than her provincial life. I, too, was a bit of a misfit: at the […]

I described some exercises and the kinds of lifts, like the swing, clean, jerk, and snatch. “It’s an efficient way to to improve your cardio and strength. I […]
