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  :)

Backyard Challenge! Using Everything in a Sequence

Crazy Backyard Challenge! Earlier today I was training someone with kettlebells and had also brought out a very cool pair of custom made paralettes from Ryan Pitts of Stronger Grip. They are excellent for l-sits as well as slightly raised push-ups (we even sometimes do push up walks up and down the two of them). Later I set up the slackline, then decided to get out the throwing knives and throwing stars, and then the Neuro-Grips, and, and... realized I had managed to drag out a whole bunch of stuff into the yard.  Before bringing everything back inside, I thought it might be fun to create a couple of non-stop sequences that used nearly everything in some way, and that kind of traveled from piece to piece.  So here we go!

I should also share the workout from earlier which was inspired by Zach Even-Esh's awesome book, The Encyclopedia of Underground Strength and Conditioning. My new client is already extremely athletic, and the ideas in his book are great for the current situation. Especially since they really work on not just strength, but power.  I love working on power, but that's a dicussion for another time. Short version: being able to generate power is super useful for all kinds of things in life.

A Challenge, A Weekend Workout, Chocolate Reviews and Other Important Stuff

Its always fun to visit other gyms, hang out etc. Inside is very nice, but of course we had to get grungy and throw tires around, push prowlers, and Swing kettlebells instead. Inside we did a Primal Move warm up, played with the really great pull up bar setup (I managed to do another couple muscle ups), and then some really weird pull ups on this very bizarre and hard to hang on to thing from Rogue called a "dog bone." I'll add photos of that later today. Anyhow here's what we did outside!  Huge thanks to David Crump, a highly skilled local personal trainer and HKC here in Orlando - you can visit his site at DC-Training.net
