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  :)

A little something I call the "One Skillet Challenge"

I have had a disporportionate number of strange adventures and living situations in my 34 years, and in that time have also developed some unusual methods of preparing good food with just a few items.   Also.... some days you just don't want to wash a ton of pots and pans.  While I don't think that there is anything in the "A Man A Can and a Plan" cookbook that is unprocessed enough to attract my attention, what has always intrigued me is the idea of very very basic, simple cooking.   (Sometimes... then other times I break out the escargot shells).  Many times the goal is to make a recipe for something that is super satisfying, but very low effort... if you are prepared.

 

Dragon Door TV features video highlights from the Orlando RKC!

Look for me at 0:36 doing one handed swings!

Just for fun.... entered a video for the recent Diesel Crew Strength Challenge -

So pleased that they finally did a "relative strength" challenge - since most of their challenges are on the absolute side and well frankly, aimed at men.   Relative strength evens things out a bit, though it is rare (I would love to change this...) for women to be as into pull ups and bodyweight training as I am... yes its a hobby and I am admittedly just a bit obsessive about it... here's my current video entry - though if I can get into a certain friend's backyard and have her hold the camera I may be able to do better:

 

The Leg DESTROYER - A boot camp workout for when you forgot your kettlebell....

YOU FORGOT YOUR KETTLEBELL?!?!?  Shame on you... seriously, like big time... or maybe you're on vacation and had to fly there?  For whatever reason, get your Gymboss timer out because its time to atone and tone.

 

First off, make sure to warm up well with some light stretching and/or joint mobility.   Take a little jog or do some jumping jacks, mountain climbers etc.  Get your heart rate up a little bit, then do a few body weight squats, keeping your weight in your heels, and sitting WAAAY back.

 

First Circuit:

You will do 3 sets of the following on EACH LEG - so a total of 6 sets.  Start with the left leg and do
