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  :)

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?

Some Real Health and Fitness Game Changers From Recent Interviews and More of My Backstory

I recently interviewed Errick McAdams for DragonDoor.com - working on these interviews is one of my absolute favorite "tasks".  Getting to know and share these success stories is incredibly rewarding, and I always look forward to learning more about other people drawn to the HKC, RKC and PCC.  The stories are varied as everyone starts from a different point -- some have always been athletic and played team sports in high school and/or college, others like Maggie Fazeli Fard, the Senior Fitness Editor of Experience Life Magazine discovered their athleticism as an adult.

Not many of you know this, but I really began fitness in earnest at about age 30.  While I'd been very aware of gyms, and had lifted weights (freeweights and machines) at Gold's all summer every summer home from college starting in 1996, before trying all manner of "womens workouts" most of which were based on the bodybuilding model we had back then. They worked to a point... and I probably didn't know what I was doing much either... But I wasn't getting the "shape I wanted" at the time.  And well, unless it was summer and too hot to be outside, I must admit I was bored.  So, I tried other things for several years with limited success. (Some of which--bellydancing--would make for some amusing "throwback Thursday" material for sure.)
