How to Join the 1%... of Kettlebell and Calisthenics Strength

I forget what business summit I was attending but for good or for ill my behaviors as an iconoclast, contrarian, and overall weirdo were being verbally encouraged by the speaker.

Raised Hands Push-Up Variation

It's fun to finally be commended for going against the tide, of swimming upstream, and NOT doing what everyone else is doing. The speaker was saying that the much maligned "1%"--at least the part that worked for it, and didn't just inherit it... or those that inherited it and kept it--were there because of BEHAVIOR... namely rare behaviors. It was pretty obvious, pretty quickly that these "rare" behaviors were the same across many different fields, not just business, marketing etc. The main thing was DO the WORK.  Focus on the basics, and DO THE WORK.

Who Froze Better? GiryaGirl or the Denver Broncos? Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

In a weird edition of "who wore it better" I present my recorded cryotherapy live stream archive video alongside a report from the Denver Broncos, one of the many pro teams out there who also use cryotherapy for recovery.

Podcast with Matt Schifferle "The Fit Rebel", PCC Team Leader and Creator of the Red Delta Project

This week’s podcast guest is PCC Team Leader Matt Schifferle, “The Fit Rebel” and founder of The Red Delta Project website and the impressive Red Delta Project YouTube channel! He was recently promoted to PCC Team Leader and is a fantastic example of someone who has really worked hard on the way to that leadership position.

He has been training clients in Colorado and producing a TON of content for YEARS online. I hope you enjoy our conversation and insights as much as we did. We could have easily kept going for another hour I think! Rest assured there will be a part two. And not to sound like I used Matt, but our conversation helped me solidify a few things that I’d been trying to organize for a very large project…

Strategy, Bacon, Espresso... Catching Up with Rolando Garcia III, NYC Trip Part 4 PLUS Neuro-Grip Max Reps Video!

A trip to Manhattan isn't complete without a brainstorming, strategy-focused visit with Rolando Garcia III...

Lunch and Strategy with Rolando Garcia III

The day or two before meeting up with Rolando Garcia III, I'd arrived at Irving Farms (recommended coffee! I brought my friend a bag back and she's still raving about it) a little early to meet up with Phil Ross and Nykki Ross (we were plotting out the podcast etc for the next week). I suddenly realized that the 3 hardboiled eggs and avocado I'd eaten for breakfast in the cafe of the hostel were long gone and the "egg plate" at Irving Farms sounded way too tempting.

Podcast and Advanced Kettlebell Tutorial Video: Visit to NYC Part 3 - Checking in with Master RKC Phil Ross and Nykki Ross

There's so much material to share with you from the NYC trip that it's frankly kind of overwhelming at the moment...

Learning a crazy advanced kettlebell drill from Phil Ross, Master RKC

However, seeing as the cat is out of the bag (oh Facebook...) on the fun and informative podcast with father-daughter super-duo Master RKC Phil Ross and Nykki Ross, I wanted to share it here ASAP.  To be fair, I didn't tell them that I usually upload to the podcast site then wait until iTunes grabbed it before doing the promo.  It does tell me though that they're subscribed to the podcast, and ultimately that's what we want!!! :) But, even if you've already listened to the podcast linked on this post (scroll below the video), keep reading here... especially since there's a video of Phil teaching me a really wild and advanced (try only at your own risk!) kettlebell drill called the bottoms-up crescent swing.

Let's Train in Austin! (2 Fitness Certifications in 1 Weekend!)

SCC and HKCLet's train together in Austin, Texas! The Dragon Door SCC (Strength Calisthenics Certification) and HKC (HardStyle Kettlebell Certification) are both coming to Austin in February 2017. You can do one or take maximum advantage--and save more $--by doing both. Hope to see you there. These two one-day workshops are great for trainers looking to upgrade their toolkit, or serious exercise enthusiasts who want to fine-tune their own training.
