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  :)

Hanging around with Aleks Salkin - and an interesting workout

So, I have to finish up some other projects today first, but know that a really fun partner kind of video montage thing is on the way.   I grabbed Aleks Salkin who you may recognise from some previous articles for some fun "anywhere" workouts during a break at the Marketing Mastermind Intensive (MMI from here on out) this past weekend.   The video should be cool, but in the meantime here's some stills.   But before we get to that, here's a workout I was inspired to do at home last week.  The workout was a further exploration of the little weighted pull ups challenge he had come up with (that I really liked and completed as well - 20 minutes, 1 weighted pull up on the minute, every minute.  I used a 12kg kettlebell on my foot, worked GREAT!!)

For a different version, I used a 30 minute time period and chose 2 intense exercises to practice over a period of time, and kept some heavy kettlebell swings in there to make sure I stayed awake (this was one of my infamous late night workouts).  OK, so cycling through each exercise here's what happened - 10 heavy kettlebell swings on the start of minute 1, the next minute started with 1 bodyweight pistol strict and as close to perfect as possible on each side, then 2 very slow and very strict hanging leg raises (straight arms, ankles to the bar) on the beginning of the minute.  I continued this rotating cycle for 30 minutes total while tidying up and organizing little things during the remaining parts of each minute.   Fun stuff.  At the end it meant 100 heavy swings, 20 hanging leg raises, and 20 pistols.  Not bad for a late nighter.

First off, I want you to know that we don't take ourselves too seriously - and that not every take is a good one.  Those flowers tasted TERRIBLE btw.

Other than that we are really cool... :)

Go Team!
