BONUS Podcast Mini Episode: The SCC-HKC Combo with Adrienne Harvey, Senior PCC and Mike Krivka, Master RKC

Bonus Episode!

This is the first in a series of 4 bonus episodes loosely focused on topics related to the SCC (Strength Calisthenics Certification) and HKC (Hardstyle Kettlebell Certification) workshop combo that Mike and I will be leading on June 11th and 12th in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  This will be the first ever combo workshop weekend for the SCC/HKC, and if you register for both, you'll save $, if you register for both before April 30th, you'll save even more.  Mike's facility, CrossFit Koncepts is absolutely ideal for BOTH workshops and I really look forward to teaching there again. 

Show Notes:

A Monkey Bar Monday WORKOUT with Video!

Those who train with me know how much I love finding a new "fit trail"! Imagine the delight in finding a fit trail AND a large open field full of mostly soft grass, but not chemically treated to the point of the local soccer fields (those make me itch and that's freaky... and scary because... chemicals!).  While this requires a little "scouting" to make sure no hands end up in ant hills, I always scout out the ground where I will be flinging myself around anyway.  No nasty surprises, please...

Monkey Bar Monday Workout!

Anyway, in honor of "Monkey Bar Monday" below is a workout video that I finally got around to editing for you! The circuit includes pullups, kettlebells, cartwheels, and of course the monkey bars!

It takes courage to do cartwheels as an adult... watch how bad they are on my non-dominant side! HAHAHAH!!!

There's 3 rounds of this in the video! :) Hope you enjoy!

Podcast with Ryan Pitts, World Class Craftsman, Mace Swinger, Grip Strength Expert

In the corner at Bud Jeffries and Logan Christopher's now legendary Super Human Training 2 Workshop in Tallahassee, FL, Ryan Pitts had carefully set out a number of totally-new-to-me but super interesting looking pieces of strength and grip training equipment.

Needless to say we all got hooked on using them at that workshop.

I ended up picking out several items which I've been using ever since. They've helped challenge my clients, small group trainees, and myself in unusual, unexpected, and incredibly useful ways.  Besides, all of this stuff is all a TON of fun.

Quick Workout for Hectic Times, Kettlebells, and Battling Rope!

I'm still working on editing a fun video for you with an especially interesting circuit (there's some highly functional but silly looking parts to it, thanks to my general appearance, some kids at the park gawked at what I was doing, but were unsure if it was "safe" to openly mock me.  Thanks, hairdo!)  Anyway that is still in the works. Look for it this weekend, so you can try it and hopefully not get laughed at by kids at the park as you work though this unusual combo! 

It's been a fairly crazy week... (click here to skip the yabbering and get to the workout) Here's some sampling of the odds and ends of the past several days... fist-bumping my now-vintage studio monitors that I absolutely swear by, sweet potato muffins I made while waiting for a video to compile, landing a tiny nanodrone on a yoga brick, resistant starch cold lentils, reading from and writing stuff in the gray workout Moleskine of doom for myself and small group, buying your Granny's unwanted Limoges, 3d printing, and Counter Culture coffee.  And that's just the stuff  can show you, it's not the writing, editing, calls, interim sysadmin responsibilities, and scores of other tasks.

Instagram Recap....

In order to "earn" the 5 visit package of cryosauna treatments I paid for earlier this week, it's been a fairly hefty workout time as well. I owe you a detailed review of Keith Weber's stellar Extreme Kettlebell Cardio Workout DVD Vol. 3 which is especially awesome, instructors will want to both do the workouts and then use pieces of the workouts for their classes. The review will include some examples of how to do this, and how to step some of the things down a notch when necessary.

Podcast with Kirsty Grosart, World Class Handstand and Bodyweight Strength Expert, GMB Coach

I've noticed Kirsty Grosart's achivements and extreme skills for years online. It was a ton of fun to get her on the GiryaGirl.com podcast! Admittedly, I'm being super-self-serving by trying to get a whole bunch of tips to improve my handstand skills, but since I'm sharing it with you, that makes it ok, right?

This super fun episode is linked below for online listening via iTunes, Stitcher, and now fancy slideshow version on Youtube! (Which do you enjoy most? Please tell me in the comments section at the bottom of this post) I even made you show notes again. And again, let me know if that's something you enjoy or not (it's a lot of work, so if you don't care, please tell me!)

Mike knows his stuff and shares everything you need to know for his versatile go-anywhere ring training.  Full progressions of every exercise, workout plans, and all the know-how to take the training as far as you wish. Good stuff, and yes, that's me on the left side of the cover  :)
