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  :)

Tough Love for the Kettlebell Clean Part TWO - a Practice Workout

Having just returned from the San Diego RKC, I had plenty of scribbled notes, new cues, and fun combos for my kettlebell small group class... and don't worry, Wednesday people, your time is coming! :)

One of the TOUGHEST kettlebell exercises to learn and to teach can be the clean.  But, it's incredibly worthwhile to persist with it, even though it can be frustrating.   I like to sandwich it into a workout to make sure the practice stays true without excessive frustration.

We started today's workout with a Primal Move inspired warm up,a few deadlifts and swings.  Moderate to light kettlebells were chosen so we could focus on our form.  

Short Report from RKC San Diego!

Another great RKC workshop has just come to a close in San Diego (surprisingly sunny even when it was overcast all day on Saturday*).  So many old and new friends were in attendence, that it was great to catch up and hear how everyone is doing in their training and in their lives.  Seriously, it was a veritable who's-who in the RKC and fitness industry...  Not to mention all the fun people in the general area who showed up to say hello, or to be "volunteer victims" during the teaching test of the weekend. 

Guest Spotlight: Corey Howard, RKC, CK-FMS and owner of Results Personal Training Weighs in on his FOOD Strategy

Adrienne: I recently met Corey Howard, RKC, CK-FMS at the Marketing Mastermind Intensive workshop in San Diego.   In addition to being in incredible athletic shape, Corey and his wife, Tricia both maintain super busy schedules.   During the very brief breaks at the workshop several of us got to know each other a little better, and I was intrigued to learn about some of the rules and strategies they have been using personally and with their clients to achieve great results and healthy lifestyle changes.   

Corey Howard: When fellow RKC, Adrienne Harvey asked me to write an article discussing the eating philosophy I use with my clients, I panicked! Read More...

Woah it's been a while! Outsourcing, NYC, Al Kavadlo, Equinox, RKC Love and MORE!

Wow, I feel like a slacker after I see how long it's been since I've made a blog post.   There are so many sitting in the queue half-finished right now that it's a bit embarrassing.   Needless to say a lot is going on, and thanks to a well placed "inspired by the 4-Hour Work Week" article in an airline magazine, I've decided to experiment further with outsourcing.  

The "study" officially began yesterday, it's HIGHLY scientific (LOL) and involves a legal-size notepad that has "BS Stuff I Don't Want To Do" scrawled across the top in my terrible handwriting.  Below that is a chart-like area in three parts: A big column for the "task I don't want to do", a small column as for whether it is something that can be outsourced (yes, no, maybe, needs research), and a small column after that for "Who/what".
