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!

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  :)

Name Three Things... that will help me become more fit and gain strength

Recently a friend on Facebook asked me the following question:

"Name three things you would suggest to me, in order to become more fit and gain strength. I've decided to make you my inspirational voice to get moving with my goals, since I've seen you become the person you are today, over the past 10 years!"

I answered with the following - granted, some of this is specific to my friend, but a lot of it is universal as well - maybe there's something helpful in there for you:

Kettlebell Snatch, VO2 Max Protocol, Guacamole, Steak and Passing Out Face Down (RKC Saturday Part 3)

Fresh, or fresh enough back from another break, we were introduced (or rather re-introduced, since most everyone had prepared for the initial RKC snatch test) to the kettlebell snatch by RKC Team Leader Franz Snideman.  The snatch is often referred to in the RKC as the "Czar of the kettlebell lifts" - mainly because practicing this intense exercise can lead to amazing strength and endurance gains.   The snatch and Swing have done so much for me personally that its nearly hard to describe - the effect on other activities like running (people, having seen what I can do have said "I didn't know you were a runner!"
