Andrea Du Cane's awesome Kettlebell Goddess Workout DVD (run time: 2 hours, 25 minutes)
Last night I shared the amusing Armour39 results from the circuit described below. Once again, we invaded the field with the very soft grass, which was suprisingly resilient considering all the traffic it received from the art show last weekend. Should have taken a picture, but after unloading the following it looked like we were going to have some kind of homegrown version of the Highland Games out there. In other words, it was looking pretty mighty and I am proud to both own and use this stuff (the list is excessive, the workout can be done with much less, this was a "just because I can" and "let's bring out all the toys!" type of thing)
Tested this one with an advanced friend... it's actually the 2nd version and I like it the best so far. We had a couple of odd social type interruptions but overall it went very well (and it got rid of my headache).
Also, I have now seen in public doing swings with both the smallestand the largest that makes... hence the name of the workout, as we've nicknamed the 10lb micro- the "puppy" since the , 106lb is officially called the . This workout has a portion that is a really interesting brain-twister where you perform swings with a VERY light then a very heavy one... its one of those where you are learning something which is not always easily expressed in words, but that you can feel happen.

Still am considering creating a regular "show" but am weighing the logistics and practicality against listenership. Feel free to let me know how you feel about podcasts, MP3s, when/where you listen, and in what preferred format (see comments area).
Upcoming Progressive Calisthenics Certification (PCC) Workshops, Carry Over and Putting the "FUN" in Functional
First of all, I'm really pleased to announce that I'll be helping Al andat two upcoming Workshops! One in April in Minneapolis, MN (there's still time for you to register... don't miss it!) and the other in one of my favorite cities in the world, NYC! While a sizeable discount still is in effect for the NYC one, there's a limited number of spots available (even though the workshop isn't until June!) so I'd suggest that if you're interested in going, you should try to sign up asap. Below are direct links to the workshop details/registration pages:
- Progressive Calisthenics Certification, MN (April)
- Progressive Calisthenics Certification NYC (June)
It's an absolute joy to help Al and Danny out at these, their enthusiasm is infectious and there's always some new little game-changers I pick up from them whenever we're in the same general area. At some point about 30 seconds into the first day of the workshop, the mind-meld happens and you'll see amusing things start to happen like Al explaining something, while Danny and I demonstrate it from 2 different angles, or from 2 different difficulties. Many times we don't rehearse that beforehand, a
Seriously easy, deceptively decadent, simple and delicious paleo/compliant sweet potato pie. And the crust can be used for other easy recipes like quiches, etc. I've even used to to make coconut custard pie recently too (recipe forthcoming I need to make some adjustments to it first)
