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  :)

Last Second Cyber Monday Gift Set Advice!

Noticed that some of you are putting together some very smart combinations of kettlebells, but not everyone may understand the same gift-giving logic.

If you're in the continental US, then now is the time to take advantage of Dragon Door's sale - it's ending tomorrow at noon central (11/29/16 1PM Eastern). As many of us already know, the cost of shipping a heavy kettlebell or a couple of reasonable sized ones can add up VERY quickly... and the shipping on the large, sturdy and totally worth it freestanding pull-up bar is nothing to ignore. It's heavy and it's oversized.

So! A little last minute, but if you need help putting together what literally could be the package deal gift for someone who's interested in getting serious about their strength, I've prepared a little guide for you.  Please note that the gift "kit" recommendations are my opinions, but that they're based on a lot of experience with the products, ideas, and modalities of RKC, RKC-II, PCC for the past several years training and coaching.

First off! The classic venerable "Which Dragon Door kettlebell do I buy?" chart :

how to choose your first Dragon Door kettlebell

Kettlebell Starter Guide
You: Starting Kettlebell A Useful Set
Average Woman 8kg (18lbs) 8kg, 12kg, 16kg
Strong Woman 12kg (26lbs) 12kg, 16kg, 20kg
Average Man 16kg (35lbs) 16kg, 20kg, 24kg, 32kg
Stronger than Average Man 20kg (44lbs) 20kg, 24kg, 32kg
Very Strong Man 24kg 24kg, 32kg, 40kg

Hope that helps!!

The Dragon Door books are also included in the 10% off and free ship deal to continental US.... so you might want to consider these gift ideas:

Kettlebell Strong Start:
Choose the appropriate kettlebell from the above chart, add Max Shank's Master the Kettlebell book, then find an HKC or RKC instructor in your area who is participating in the free kettlebell lesson with kettlebell purchase program!

Calisthenics Home Gym Collection:

Ultimate Minimalist Complete Home Gym Starter Kit:

Has someone in your life talked about registering for an HKC, RKC, SCC, or PCC? Those workshops can be literally a life changing experience and the catalyst for self-renewal and even a career change!  But before that even, if you have someone in your life who is really really really into their exercise and loves it, you may want to consider gifting them a workshop too.

We've had so many enthusiasts at the workshops show up for their own enjoyment and knowledge -- people who aren't instructors or trainers at all, but who include MDs, DMDs, Chiros, psychiatrists, breakdancers, architects, etc. I could go on and on... just wanted to remind you that while the courses were originally intended for instructors, people who love kettlebell training, calisthenics, and want to be at their peak will also love the workshops.  The workshops are not included in the Cyber Monday deals, but they would be an incredible, thoughtful gift for someone.

Likewise, if you do get the Bodyweight Master pull-up bar and need help assembling it, I have a video about that and I check in frequently online if you might need help--just ask in the comments section below! :)
