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  :)

Monkey Bar Monday - Rope Climbing in Providence, RI and A Scaled At Home Version!

Monkey Bar Monday #MonkeyBarMonday

As you may have gathered I shot a fair amount of video while in Providence, Rhode Island recently.  The weather was ideal (slightly cool and overcast outside) not only for running around but acting as a natural light diffusor for pretty good video!!!  When we arrived at Brown Street Park, I had that whole feeling you get as a kid when you see the playground and you can't seem to wait any longer.  The urge to sprint across the grass and immediately begin climbing on something was very hard to overcome. 

One of the topics we'll hopefully explore in the podcast I'm recording (AGAIN! Long story...) tomorrow with a local, very accomplished movement focused chiro friend is the importance of play, and exploration of movement--especially as adults.  Often we have to give ourselves "permission" to play or explore as adults, as we're all too accustomed and comfortable with highly structured activities.  I don't want to get into that too much here, because Chad and I have a lot to say about it that you will hopefully enjoy later this week.  Monkey Bar Monday is kind of my attempt to remind people to have some fun even on a Monday with an active pursuit of some kind.

The video below is pretty funny... the monkey bars were so high off the ground that I couldn't even jump to reach them!  As with almost all my videos, this is completely unscripted, and for whatever reason we were kinda slap-happy at this point.
