Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod

Before I get to this week’s killer 10 minute dumbbell workout, I got something to say. Ahem. I can’t believe the year is ending. 2019 will forever be known as the year of the blur.

Every workout we’ve done together features me heaped over in a puddle of sweat and humility. Barney, on the other hand, stares back and asks for more. Why do you care? Barney isn’t just a kettlebell. He’s a symbol. Do you remember the …
