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  :)

Mace

Slackline and Mace Experimental Challenge - Unconventional Outdoor Balance and Mobility Training [VIDEO]

It's that brief but magical time of the year in Florida where on a few days it is very nice outside. Soon, it will be unbearably hot, humid, and with afternoons full of steaming hot rain. BUT until that time, I try to get outside (in the shade at least) as much as possible.

Hawk approved balance and mobility outdoor workout

Yes, this is a silly graphic, but it's 100% true. I really enjoy observing the occasional bird of prey, and it is uncanny how many of my own workouts and those of the kettlebell small group are attended by a hawk. It's probably the time of day, but it still seems very special.

Slacklining is a great excuse to go out and play, and yesterday I decided to also take along my very cool mace from Stronger Grip.

Advanced Partner Workout - It's Also Scaleable!

Admittedly, this advanced partner workout borders on just a little bit silly, but it is also a whole heck of a lot of fun.  It works well for people who are fairly close in athletic abilities, but it is super easy to adapt it for very advanced or intermediate partner possibilities. 

Also, there's a somewhat excessive amount of cool fitness toys in this one, and that's mainly due to a "just because we can" situation -- all in a blissful airconditioned space with multiple pull up stations etc.  (Granted if you had seen us after this workout you might have thought we had been outside in the 90 degree heat with 100% humidity...)

Mayhem in the Park Workout - Kettlebells, Maces, Battling Rope, optional Hawk and Poker Chips

Sequence for walking lunges with exercise mace as demonstrated by GiryaGirl.com  

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)
