Another Look at a Stronger Grip Favorite, An Unconventional Strength Challenge Partner Workout, and More "Tone and Drone" Antics
After an eagle-eyed Stronger Grip GripBalls, I remembered that I hadn't talked about them in a while and did a short video about how they can be used for a variety of grip strength and coordination challenges. In addition to the variations in the video below, many people use them to pull sleds, etc. Always be sure to do some extensor work after grip training--especially if it is this intense!follower asked if the little hook ball items on my home bar were
In the corner at and Logan Christopher's now legendary Super Human Training 2 Workshop in Tallahassee, FL, Ryan Pitts had carefully set out a number of totally-new-to-me but super interesting looking pieces of strength and grip training equipment.
Needless to say we all got hooked on using them at that workshop.
I ended up picking out several items which I've been using ever since. They've helped challenge my clients, small group trainees, and myself in unusual, unexpected, and incredibly useful ways. Besides, all of this stuff is all a TON of fun.

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.
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 thesmall 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.
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)
Here's a very informal little video I just made today with 2 of my favorite SUPER BASIC mace exercises. For size reference, I'm 5'3"
