Austin Adventures with the SCC and HKC - Plus a Workout and Mobility Stuff!

Ever have one of those trips where you come back and you know you've changed in some way? This was definitely one of those!  And I mean that in a good way.  There was no shortage of adventure and excitement this past weekend in Austin, Texas.  In fact for one of the more action packed parts, I am only half-joking about exaggerating it a little and writing it up as a screenplay... I've already cast Danny Trejo as one of the villains.  Long story short, we are unstoppable.

Tao Health and Fitness, SCC, HKC Austin Instructors and Host

Back to the SCC and HKC... I led the SCC on Saturday, and Senior RKC Paul Britt led the HKC on Sunday.  The folks that showed up to each workshop (and some showed up for both) were extremely impressive not only with their physical abilities, but with their professionalism, experience, and understanding of the human condition.

BONUS Podcast Mini Episode: The SCC-HKC Combo with Adrienne Harvey, Senior PCC and Mike Krivka, Master RKC

Bonus Episode!

This is the first in a series of 4 bonus episodes loosely focused on topics related to the SCC (Strength Calisthenics Certification) and HKC (Hardstyle Kettlebell Certification) workshop combo that Mike and I will be leading on June 11th and 12th in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  This will be the first ever combo workshop weekend for the SCC/HKC, and if you register for both, you'll save $, if you register for both before April 30th, you'll save even more.  Mike's facility, CrossFit Koncepts is absolutely ideal for BOTH workshops and I really look forward to teaching there again. 

Show Notes:

21 Kettlebell Workouts from Master RKC Dan John, Valuable Programming Tips, and What to Do After Your HKC Workshop!

HKC logoJust a quick note here for you to check out Dan John's new post on the RKC Blog.  Basically he outlines the importance and power of the one-day HKC workshop for trainers, instructors, coaches, and yes even serious fitness enthusiasts!

Then he goes on to describe 20 days of workouts to be done after the HKC experience to really help cement the training, understanding, and to bring about some very positive physical changes too.

I can't overstate the importance of this post from Dan John and hope that you enjoy reading it and putting parts of it into practice today!

Ask Giryagirl: More Tips to Fix Your Hardstyle Kettlebell Swing [VIDEOS!]

Ask Girya Girl

Every now and then, friends and former clients who've moved away will send along a video of their kettlebell swing.  "Does this look right?!" or "What am I doing wrong?!" etc. And before we even get to the fact of the different legitimate styles of kettlebell swings (I practice and teach the RKC hardstyle kettlebell swing, but there's also a GS "Girvoy Sport" style of swing, CrossFit etc.), there are tons of very questionable videos out there online.  The questionable videos are often aimed at women and that of course drives me bonkers.  So, with very little prompting it's easy enough to get me to run outside and shoot a video or two to help people who might need a few pointers to really dial-in their hardstyle kettlebell swings.  

Ask GiryaGirl: Is Convict Conditioning OK for Women? Are there Prerequisites for the HKC? And A SERIOUS Interview!

Ask GiryaGirl Topics....

Could have SWORN that I'd answered the first question before, and maybe I have, but I also forget what day it is on a semi-regular basis given that sometimes enough interesting things happen in 1/4 of a day to account for a full day.  Not complaining about that one bit. Without any further delay, here we go!

Q: Is Convict Conditioning suitable for women?
