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  :)

HKC

A Kettlebell Workout, a Busy Week, a Visitor, and MORE!

It's been a great week, but as you can see from my personal lack of article posting here, a BUSY ONE too!    The good news is there's tons of new content on the way for you very soon.   In the mean time, here's what's been going on:  I switched up the schedule for Kettlebell Small Group - the now very exclusive class I teach - and this was a great thing to do because we had a much better attendence AND since no one had to really crush their schedule or commute to get here, the energy and enthusiasm was even HIGHER.   Of course, it also helped that the brains behind PrimalBurgher.com and soon-to-be-HKC-candidate, Janelle was visiting Florida this week too.   She's been able to join us for a couple of classes, and also a fun impromptu session at my favorite park last weekend.

Orlando HKC Experience - Testing, Making People Nervous (oops), and More! (Part 3)

Finally back to the last installment of the Orlando HKC Recap! We further worked on the Get Up, with a troubleshooting section.  People who felt like they had a problem somewhere with their get up volunteered to demo and have the HKC participants and instructors help them improve their form. It's fun to watch this learning process even as a helper AND it's a great time to pick up or refine coaching cues and tools. Of course, the most important thing is to make sure that everyone stays safe. If someone is going heavier than normal, or isn't feeling quite confident with a new kettlebell, it's important to learn how to spot someone in the get up.

Orlando HKC Experience - Helping Out, Testing, and More! (Part 2)

We came back from lunch and promptly started back in on the Get Up.   I really love the get up - at first, waaaay back when (a couple years ago or more) I was first learning it, I thought it was actually very overwhelming.  It seemed awkward and unnecessarily confusing, and somehow (now I have no idea how I was doing this) I'd always end up facing the opposite direction.   Fortunately, with the coaching skills of Tim Shuman, RKCII I was able to quickly get a clue in the get up department.   It's really not something you can teach yourself from videos - videos and DVDs are great when you're just using them to reinforce live coaching, or to build on your skills etc.
