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  :)

RKC Prep and the 10,000 Kettlebell Swing Challenge

Though I think that the majority of the 10,000 kettlebell swings will happen for me at the RKC weekend, I'm still participating in Tim Shuman, RKCII's annual month-long 10,000 Swing challenge. If you do the math, it works out to approx 238 swings per day. In 2 days I am 500 swings into it, so right on track so far! He says to pick a "prize" at the end of it, and I've chosen a Samovar - which is amusingly appropriate.

 

Substitute taught a friend's fitness bootcamp classes last night - and here's their kettlebell workout!

While my super awesome fellow personal trainer friend Alicia Streger was out of town yesterday, I had the opportunity to lead her 6PM fitness bootcamp and her 7PM kettlebell bootcamp. WHAT A CHALLENGE! :) I love challenges though. Problem was, traffic and closed roads fought me all the way there and by the time I had arrived (with maybe 2-3 minutes to spare) I was staring down the barrel of 20+ people who were ready to workout. Fighting off the fluster of driving like James Bond as fast as I could I got them to do their warm up run around the track. When they came back it was time to GET DOWN TO BUSINESS...

Tonight an amazing thing happened... I did the snatch test without chalk, and without having my hands even slightly getting torn up.     Because for the past week, I have been shaving down the calluses on my hands daily with one of those silly "as seen on tv" Ped Eggs.

TRX Training Recap!

Yesterday I attended the TRX STC 8-hour training course for personal trainers and other fitness professionals.  It was held at ocfsgym.com, a boxing, MMA, and fitness gym here in Orlando.  They had a really nice facility there complete with kettlebells, a boxing ring, fight cage, strength training machines, and a wood floor classroom.  We were obviously in the classroom.   Despite the bizarre lighting in there, it was a great learning environment with 9 TRX suspension trainers hangin
