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  :)

Setting Personal Records in the garage with Coach Tim Shuman, RKCII

Did I get your attention with that "double beast press" tag there?   Before you start calling me out, I wasn't the one who did it, Tim Shuman did.  The double "beast" kettlebell press is something that he's been working on for a while - FYI those kettlebells weigh 106lbs EACH, so... yeah... and before you get all "I lift more than that on a barbell, bro" remember kettlebells are different...

Habitual movement patterns, mindfulness, intention, seeking mastery

"A job worth doing is worth doing well" - English Proverb

"UGH! Do it #&^!ing RIGHT!!!" -Anonymous Friend 1999

 

Anyone who has trained with me knows - I am a STICKLER for correct exercise form - with everything, even simple exercises at boot camp (which annoys a few people... sorry but you're NOT injuring yourself on my watch), but especially with kettlebell training.  For one - performing and practicing the exercises correctly is safer and more beneficial to you, especially in the long term.  Most of what people do daily in terms of movement seems to be habitually based - usually unconscious.   

 

Hardstyle Kettlebell Certification (HKC) Questions and Answers

GiryaGirl.com user Montana Badboy asked some great questions about the HKC and how to prepare for it:

Q:   It's possible that an HKC training event will be coming close to my area, I am thinking about attending. Do you know anything about the HKC training and how it differs from RKC. It sounds like it's exactly what I'm looking for, and any suggestions on preparation would be greatly appreciated. I already own an copy of Enter the Kettlebell and have read it many many times, in addition to some of Pavel's other books, and I train with my 35lb kb every day ( swings, one-arm swings, clean and pressget up, snatches, windmills, renegade rows, and high pulls) and do pullups 5-6 days a week, anything I should really focus on? I want to be prepared.

A variation on the "Deep Six" Workout - practice all six RKC exercises in one compact package!

I absolutely love the "Deep Six" workout originally developed by Senior RKC Jon Engum, but wanted to modify it for a few of my newer clients, for our extreme climate here in Florida, and for a shorter time expendature too.

Originally the Deep Six is in the following order and run for 5 rounds, you start with the right hand and keep it until the Get Up in the middle:

- 5 swings
- 5 snatches
- 5 clean and presses
- 5 front squats
- 1/2 Get Up (starting from the top down - then when on the ground, you safely switch hands and Get Up - the kettlebell is now in your LEFT HAND where you complete the

- 5 swings
- 5 snatches
- 5 clean and presses
- 5 front squats
