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  :)

Strange Human Truths Unearthed by Kettlebell Training

Strange Human Truths Unearthed By Kettlebells

A really cool article came out today on DragonDoor.com from Master RKC Chris Holder. Chris has a long history as a strength and conditioning coach for collegiate athletics. He’s observed some very interesting human behavior to say the least. In his article, two short quotes immediately jogged my brain and reminded me of several odd observations from my own experience as both a kettlebell user and as an instructor. Not that any “snowflakes” read this blog, but just in case any are right now, brace yourselves, Chris pulls no punches. LOL.

“What I can tell you is that 99.999% of the population have no idea what high tension is. They think they do, but they have no relationship with intensity.”

“Do you think a thirty-something desk jockey has the slightest understanding of what it means to push? Does that guy have a handle on what it means to cramp your glutes? Has he ever needed to brace his midsection to armor for a punch or kick? Has he ever pushed himself so hard that he’s familiar with the feeling of almost blacking out?”

Many years ago, I had no idea either. And I’m not going to judge. It took training with a TOUGH RKC Instructor back in Florida to realize where “the line” was, and frankly that was really part of the “secret sauce”. Framing it another way, most people don’t understand the power and potential power they have at their disposal. Most people have NO IDEA how much more they can improve their strength, conditioning, power, and endurance.
