Powers of the Get-Up, One HAND Pull Up Tips Via Video, American Ninja Warrior Application Turned In, and Upcoming Adventures
First off, I want to introduce Sebastian Müller, RKC Team Leader over in Germany. I was able to meet him at the 2013 in Sweden (which was so epic that we are all still talking about it...). Anyway, Sebastian has some absolutely great ideas about training, and this most recent he has contributed to the Blog is certainly no exception! While the get-up is both loved and hated (and some people even oscillate between these two feelings DURING the exercise!) it's power and teaching potential cannot be denied. If you are a beginner and a get-up hater, then take a few steps back and just work on the component parts of it. Seriously -- taken as all 7 steps together, as a beginner a few years ago I was totally bewildered and overwhelmed by it. Now? I can do them in my sleep (well ok I can do them before that necessary jolt of morning espresso).

So... you may have noticed (I hope) that I do not participate in the YouTube program of making $ from commercials on my videos. Instead I've always opted to leave you useful product links in the video descriptions, mention products and things that I like in the videos which I may also be promoting in some capacity. I only promote things I think are cool and that you will probably enjoy too. SO you can look forward to NOT having to see some boring mainstream tv type commercial before any of my videos EVER.
Not a problem! Also, for Florida, since it dipped under 50 degrees (Fahrenheit) that meant everyone was running around freezing, or were gleefully wearing any and all of the "cold weather clothes" that they never get to wear. Seriously, you would have thought a bizzard was on the way, or that the ski lodge was next door. I understand though, unless Floridians travel at all during the winter, we don't get to wear any cold weather things. I'm sure people with fireplaces are hastily firing them up... A much more sane approach would be to check out the workout(s) below.
This certainly raised the temperatures across the board:
We warmed up with Primal Move then timed how long it took to complete 100swings (participants chose their - both chose a moderate weight). I am proud to say that everyone was able to do it in a single set, which is always nice to see. It also means that next time they'll want to choose something maybe a little heavier? :) HAHA.
Now for the circuit -- 5 toasty rounds of:
Before leaving for NJ/NY last week to train with Master, I wanted to make sure to make the absolute most of the training time up there, so over the past few weeks I had ramped up both my strength endurance activities, as well as generally the high intensity cardio (heavy swings, sprawls*, drills like rotational lunges, and things that nearly have me falling on my face like a whole bunch of snatches then a quick lap around a track x4 etc).
A lot has been happening in a very short period of time - but that's exciting - I hope that your 2012 is off to a great start, and that you're still speeding ahead to your goals and keeping up with the challenges of the new year. Here's a little of what's been going on recently -
