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  :)

Newsflash! We Interrupt this Website for the Best Kind of Bonkers!

If you've been reading my site for any amount of time you know I'm into mace training and that I'm a huge fan of Ryan Pitts of StrongerGrip's awesome creativity and craftsmanship.  FYI he is also like me, a bit bonkers--but in a good way.  This new waterfilled mace--Leviathan Mace Limited Edition--he just introduced is just too epic for me not to share here. If I didn't think I'd scrape it on the ground when trying to do "10 and 2s" with it I'd order up one the next time I had the $ laying around... It's huge, it's crazy, it' beautiful.

 

A post shared by Ryan J Pitts (@ryanjpitts1) on

And those three things together pretty much make something irrestable. I'm in the middle of a bunch of projects (and owe you TWO workouts PLUS at least 2 videos) with hard deadlines and self-imposed dealines but had to take a second to share this extremely over the top new masterpiece from Ryan. Warning, he's making this look easy, I assure you it's not.  (There was that whole incident where I put too many bbs in my 6" globe core club mace and very shamefully had to pour half of them out...)

Interview Extravaganza!

Once again, a terrible leave of abscence... I hope that none of you have had the flu this season but I got hit by a real hum-dinger of one.  I had just returned home from a fantastic adventure that I wanted to tell you all about, but quickly had to put that on hold as I only had the energy to do the most basic of work stuff (to you know, keep the lights on and the rent paid).  The good news is, I was still able to complete a couple of really fun interviews for Dragon Door and have saved notes from all the stuff I didn't have a chance to write up for you yet (including some super fun workouts).

Pull-ups, Pull-up grip variations, PLUS Shoulder and Thoracic Spine (Upper Back) Mobility

Since pull-ups and shoulder mobility are inextricably linked, intertwined, and occasionally even inhibit each other, I thought it might be a good idea to have these two videos (and link to Senior RKC Paul Britt's awesome blog post too... keep reading) together.
 

One Hand Pullup

First things first...

For people who can do a comfortable 3-5 pull-ups, it can be a fun challenge to (I got this idea from Zach Even-Esh, author of The Encyclopedia of Underground Strength and Conditioning) mix up the grip on your pull ups and chin ups on each set.  For example, let's say you're doing the following random example circuit:

I was a guest on the Red Delta Project Podcast, Plus a Bodyweight Only Workout, and a Video

The Red Delta Project PodcastA few days ago I had the honor of being the first ever guest on PCC Team Leader, Matt Shifferle's Red Delta Project Podcast. Once again, as when he was recently the guest on MY podcast, we had a ton of fun discussing some of our favorite topics, calisthenics, the PCC, great food, training strategies and more.

At the risk of bragging, it seems like we get around to some pretty powerful stuff in conversations. Hope you enjoy this episode titled "Tackling Bodyweight Training with Adrienne Harvey"! And did I REALLY divulge a fat loss tip? Yes indeed!

Listen to The Red Delta Project Podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, or directly from his website.

Shortly after he attended the PCC quite a while ago, I interviewed Matt for Dragon Door and instantly realized how creative, cool, and skilled Matt is, so be sure to check out his extensive website, podcast, and substantial YouTube channel!

Bonus Podcast! 2016 Kickoff Experiement - "Questions From Google" Kettlebells, Bodies, Bums, and Challenges

Bonus Podcast!!!!! Kicking off 2016 with a little retrospective of questions, phrases, and search strings that people have typed into Google... and then ended up on my site.  Some are super important, some are silly (and yet still important at the same time).  I had fun with this one.

Going to be hitting the road again very soon, and decided that it was as good of an excuse as any to test out the secondary audio recorder I have... it's small and very roadworthy, but I was concerned about sound quality.  To my great and happy surprise, it recorded this podcast with ease, low noise and at a very nice quality.  It's earned a place in my bag for this trip, which is a great relief because the other recorder (which is great for pro audio and has XLR inputs and phantom power) is a bit clunky and conspicuous. 

I'll be guest teaching at Momentum Fitness in NYC, and two classes are already waiting list only, so get over there and sign up now while you still can! People don't usually register this far in advance apparently so... click here to sign up for a selection of bodyweight, kettlebell, sandbag and metcon classes taught by yours truly at Momentum Fitness in the Upper West Side. I'm really looking forward to this... at the same time I'll also be talking to some industry icons, friends, gym owners, authors, and thinkers... brace yourself for the onslaught of awesome content soon!!!
