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  :)

A mish-mash workout with a good friend

A good friend of mine, and fellow kettlebell enthusiast joined me today for a lunchtime workout.  She has taken a new job which requires a LOT of heavy lifting (of people) in a medical setting - and had missed some heavy kettlebell lifting, as well as some intense cardio.   Here's what we did:

 

Short-style "Das Kettle"

1 Get Up each side

10 2 hand swings

1 clean, 5 presses on the right side, 1 clean, 5 presses on the left side

1 clean, 5 front squats on the right side, 1 clean 5 front squats left side (or 10 goblet squats)

5 snatches each side

Do this with your lightest bell, then move up, and up, then up again if you can.  For example here's what we did:

A 300 workout...

After the movie 300 came out there was a lot of buzz in various magazines, blogs etc. about the 300 Workout which the cast of the movie was purported to have used to get in marvelous shape.   Rumors formed, theories abounded blah blah blah.   At the end of it, a lot of people were inspired to make up their own workout of 300 reps... and today I came up with one myself.   Adapted from one I saw online while clicking around... I changed out several of the exercises to make it more kettlebell focused.

Do three rounds as quickly (BUT SAFELY) as possible, resting when needed (keep MOVING during rest-taking... your heart will thank you).

Substitute taught a friend's fitness bootcamp classes last night - and here's their kettlebell workout!

While my super awesome fellow personal trainer friend Alicia Streger was out of town yesterday, I had the opportunity to lead her 6PM fitness bootcamp and her 7PM kettlebell bootcamp. WHAT A CHALLENGE! :) I love challenges though. Problem was, traffic and closed roads fought me all the way there and by the time I had arrived (with maybe 2-3 minutes to spare) I was staring down the barrel of 20+ people who were ready to workout. Fighting off the fluster of driving like James Bond as fast as I could I got them to do their warm up run around the track. When they came back it was time to GET DOWN TO BUSINESS...
