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  :)

Stack Attack!

Here's another variation on a kettlebell stacking workout - though there are a few different drills for variety, I also chose these particular exercises to not overwork my kettlebell group on some exercises we had really hammered the previous session.  A more traditional approach can be seen here: another stacked timed sets workout

Stacking workouts are great ways to really ramp up the intensity of a workout - make sure you take rests where needed, but be sure to also do your best.  Choose a moderate weight kettlebell for this workout, beginners will need to rest more - no big deal!

30 seconds rest

Haven't Forgotten! Sunday Part 2 of the Orlando RKC is in the works- should be posting VERY soon! :)

Sometimes it writes itself, sometimes its a struggle... these last two are so very very important.   The good news for you is - it isn't over as the RKCII looms large next week - and you bet I'll be blogging about that too!

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.

A Sunday Practice Time Workout

Friday night's class was rained out!  But we made up for that today - its basically a twist on program minimum with a couple extras thrown in for fun.

Start with your favorite joint mobility exercises then

On your best time (just taking breaks as needed) do 5 rounds of the following

  • Kettlebell Halo - 5 Right, 5 Left
  • 20 Swings (one or two hands your choice!)
  • Figure 8s - 5 Right, 5 Left

 

THEN - because they just learned how to snatch last week, it was practice time - we started out reviewing the form, and everyone did a few so I could check.   Next was the following:

For advanced - aim for the RKC Snatch Test result - 100 snatches in 5 minutes
