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  :)

Short on Time Kettlebell Workout Variations...

It's been humid... REALLY annoyingly hot and humid for this time of year.  Unfortunately I keep forgetting that. Last week a friend and I decided to go and do a favorite kettlebell challenge, the SSST (Secret Service Snatch Test) and it was so humid that it even tore up her hands which I previously thought were made of some kind of teflon material.

Quick Kettlebell Workout Ideas

As for myself, I could feel my hands start to suffer so I just took down the pace.  Stayed within the 10 minutes, but did not even nearly approach my goal of getting past 200 total snatches which I have previously done and exceeded many times. This drove me NUTS...  Fortunately the SSST was just the first 1/3 of what we were doing that day so there was plenty of time to redeem myself to myself, but it still was nagging me...

THEN I saw Phil Ross's cool post which included a neat workout structure that worked out to 200 kettlebell snatches.
