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  :)

Two Quick Weekday Workouts for Kettlebells and More!

Short on Time Kettlebell Workouts

This past week was crazy busy, but now that I've got a little bit of time, there's two quick workouts to share!  One was indoors, the other outdoors, but both were fun in their own way and combined strength elements with a little bit of HIIT too. I've continued to enjoy using the fan bike for 8 all out sets of 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest at the end of workouts. More about that near the end of this previous post.

For the first short workout, I'd been meaning to spend more "quality time" with a pair of 20kg kettlebells, so the workout is essentially centered around them. I find that getting in a fair amount of reps of standard presses with a 20kg kettlebell seems to really help my 24kg press and beyond. I need to get back into pressing the 28kg to be honest... I haven't tried in a while but I'm sure it's still fairly close if it isn't already there at least for one on a good day.

So, after a joint mobility warmup (very similar to the one included in my little eBook of random workouts I led in NYC last year) I continued the warm up with a bodyweight get-up on each side immediately followed with a single 20kg kettlebell get-up on each side. Get-ups are not only awesome to include in workouts, but I like to add a couple as part of a warm-up to "get everything working together" for lack of a better term.

Jon Bruney's New eBook is OUT!

SO psyched that the ebook version of Jon Bruney's new title, The Neuro-Grip Challenge is available! (Paperback is supposed to be ready in about six weeks.) The two images above are just a couple from many cool shots that will give you all kinds of interesting exercise ideas... you should see the stuff that Rob Miller is doing in the book, too! Nearly gravity defying! 

You'll also notice that along with the new info on the Neuro-Grip Challenge eBook page, there are new photos on the Neuro-Grips page too and some of those are crazy fun as well. What I like most about the book is that Jon Bruney drills down into very useful wrist strength and mobility drills that are useful for all skill levels.  Though the exercises in the book get super difficult, they also start from the very beginning, something I've always loved about the approach in Convict Conditioning.

So, in honor of the ebook release, here's an intermediate/advanced kettlebell workout that includes a little bit of Neuro-Grip time! Below the workout is a video showing another fun but pretty difficult Neuro-Grip drill that shows you don't just have to do push-ups (which you may have gathered from the photos at the beginning of this post).
