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 Count to 100 Kettlebell and TRX Workout

It's a Monday after a holiday weekend - a holiday notorious for various forms of overindulgence here in the USA... I didn't, but many people did. I did however get my sleep schedule all out of whack (which has the fortunate side effect of helping my writing/proofreading/editing abilities). A more unfortunately side effect is the endless stacks of books/papers/etc all over the place - not to mention the near avalanche of books which were delivered from Amazon from various carriers all day today. Something simple and mind clearing was in order...

We started with a Primal Move warm up

then simply knocked out 5 rounds of:

  • 10/side kettlebell snatches (or 1 arm swings)
  • 20 TRX "atomic" push ups (before form degraded, switching to just tucks when necessary) Alternately you can do burpees if a TRX or equivalent is not available

This had the desired effect of 100 reps of each before finishing up with more Primal Move and a nice walk to get some dinner!

My good friend, Amber Lee has started a fun series of "exercise snacks" a term I heard (and we all practiced) at the most recent Marketing Mastermind Intensive.  Remember - exercise doesn't have to happen all in one big block, small but meaningful practice throughout the day can keep you sharp at work, and help you keep active.

Here's an outtake photo from Al Kavadlo's upcoming book, Pushing the Limits! Just seconds before this was snapped, I discovered at age 35 that I have some issues with heights (actually had to close my eyes to pop up into the bridge postition). Al is creating an incredibly fun body weight book - from what I've seen so far, it's very impressive and you will need to add it to your collection! :)   And in case you missed it, the super cool DVD version of Al Kavadlo's Raising the Bar was released early last week as well.  Highly recommended - I've watched it and love it!  If you're ready to take your pull up practice to the next level, then check it out immediately!
