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  :)

He called it "Woozy Wednesday"

My kettlebell small group members are a lot of fun, and one of them in particular seems to have a knack for coming up with little slogans.   Yesterday's workout was hince named for the day of the week, which will forever be known as "Woozy Wednesday" because well - some of them got a bit woozy and had to walk it off from time to time.   No cookies were chucked thankfully.

Want to get woozy yourself?

Warm up with joint mobility - then....  taking breaks as needed see how quickly (but with strict correct form!) you can do the following:

Quick Celebration Workout....

For nothing short of a little pride and vanity, I wanted to make sure that the first kettlebell class that I led after becoming an RKC Level 2 instructor was one of my own.   With less than 24 hours to go - before substitute leading a friend's boot camp and kettlebell class, I had to think fast.   The workout is not for beginners, and is a super quick one, but it was a lot of fun today and I am thankful to everyone who showed up - one drove for almost an hour to participate, another brought a bottle of my favorite kombucha (even remembered ginger flavor!!!)  Fantastic on both accounts! :)

 

A variation on the "Deep Six" Workout - practice all six RKC exercises in one compact package!

I absolutely love the "Deep Six" workout originally developed by Senior RKC Jon Engum, but wanted to modify it for a few of my newer clients, for our extreme climate here in Florida, and for a shorter time expendature too.

Originally the Deep Six is in the following order and run for 5 rounds, you start with the right hand and keep it until the Get Up in the middle:

- 5 swings
- 5 snatches
- 5 clean and presses
- 5 front squats
- 1/2 Get Up (starting from the top down - then when on the ground, you safely switch hands and Get Up - the kettlebell is now in your LEFT HAND where you complete the

- 5 swings
- 5 snatches
- 5 clean and presses
- 5 front squats

Favorite episode of DragonDoor.tv and plans for GiryaGirl.tv

The time to launch GiryaGirl.tv approaches, and I just have to say that Amanda Salas and her crew are so much fun - we became friends on twitter shortly before the Orlando RKC and had a blast being complete nerds about it. The DragonDoor.tv shows have given me a lot of ideas of how I want to run my own - and this episode is of course my favorite - the Orlando RKC certification weekend recap! Somehow managed to get on there a few times (hair is pulled back), can you spot me?
