Rings of Power by Mike GIllette

Rings of Power by Mike Gillette Cool new book from Mike Gillette about Ring Training for all fitness levels. Being on this shoot with Mike was like working with a real live action hero! (And I got to put a cinderblock on him too!) 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  :)

A 500 Challenge - With provisions for enclosed spaces

My intensive small group participants are really starting to have fun with their workouts - and just as exciting you can really see the healthy changes happening almost right before your eyes.   They've all lost between 3-8 pounds each or more without any super drastic changes to their diets - mindful portions and avoiding junk food.  Nothing extreme.  

So tonight was a make up session for the Monday which was rained out - the weather again looked bad so we made plans to check out the courtyard if we needed to - thing was, we wanted to be sure not to cause any property damage (one of the participants is employed by the property!!) or other problems.   I came up with a challenge workout that would have options for non-ballistic movements if necessary, and that would mostly keep us up off the ground.

 

Do 4 Rounds of the following in your best time:

  • 20 Swings OR 20 Burpees
  • 20 Presses (10 per side - if you are uncomfortable cleaning the kb, use the special deadlift + one hand over the other method of getting the kettlebell into the rack position)
  • 20 1-leg deadlifts (10 per side)
  • 20 Push Ups
  • 20 Squats with Upright Row (2 distinct movements)
  • 25 Russian Twists (right side left side = 1)
