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!

Revenge of the Franken-Workout!!

Revenge of the Franken-Workout

These past couple of weeks there have been a number of really cool ideas out there in the kettlebell and advanced fitness world. These combined with the need of the kettlebell small group to work on technique inspired me to create this intermediate-level full body kettlebell workout with a middle portion that focuses on fine tuning technique for kettlebell swings and snatches.  There's some extra stuff added in to make this a full body workout including an "extra credit" mini circuit at the end.

Hurrah Hurrah It's Track Day!

The weather was actually *NICE* out today, and it seemed like a good time as any to take a little trek down to the local running track - it's part of a city park, so everyone can use it.   Given the good weather, there were all kinds of things going on - kids soccer practice, a running group, all kinds of stuff, and a friend's local bootcamp showed up as we were leaving - so it was fun to see everyone again.   Last time we had a day at the track, we did a version of the infamous DOE Manmaker.   Today's workout was similarly structured, but we sw

Practicing the RKC 6 - A Kettlebell Workout

Pretty sure I got this complex or a version of it from Tim Shuman and/or Geoff Neupert (who is really good at that whole complex thing), although after talking to some friends it's actually really really close to Jon Engum's Deep Six workout  Anyhow, one of my clients did a doubles (not the snatches) version this week as well.   Its a good way to practice all six of the RKC exercises in a small block of time.  It was also a chance to revisit the "old favorites" that got me into this whole RKC kettlebell thing in the first place.  

 

Simple Snatching Practice Kettlebell Workout

The small group learned and/or reviewed the RKC Kettlebell Snatch - so I wanted to create a workout that would allow for plenty of practice - both for the new members of the group as well as the more experienced.   We also wanted to get in some time with the Battling Ropes for variety. 

Beginners use light kettlebells for the snatching portions of the workout - the main point of this is to get in some good solid practice - not to get bruises or become unsafe in the form. 

More experienced participants may wish to do this with their RKC snatch test sized kettlebell... for the "heavy" kettlebell, bring out some of the largest ones you have at your gym, scaling of course to the participants abilities.
