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  :)

What a Big Weekend!

As far as we know - and we both checked, Laurel Blackburn of Tallahassee Kettlebells and Boot Camps To Go and I are the only 2 female RKC Level 2 Instructors in Florida.   So of course we have to meet up from time to time, and get a whole lot of fun stuff going on.  This always seems to involve tons of coffee in various forms (yes, I brought my stovetop espresso maker), dark chocolate, feats of strength, multiple computers, cameras, and lots of grilled steak.  Today was no slouch of a day - getting an early start at the gym - gotta say I always covet that cargo net and other various obstacles and just massive square footage Laurel h

Practicing the RKC 6 - A Kettlebell Workout

Pretty sure I got this complex or a version of it from Tim Shuman and/or Geoff Neupert (who is really good at that whole complex thing), although after talking to some friends it's actually really really close to Jon Engum's Deep Six workout  Anyhow, one of my clients did a doubles (not the snatches) version this week as well.   Its a good way to practice all six of the RKC exercises in a small block of time.  It was also a chance to revisit the "old favorites" that got me into this whole RKC kettlebell thing in the first place.

RKC-related interviews by Adrienne Harvey of GiryaGirl.com published Elsewhere

I've had some fantastic opportunities to meet some amazing people in the fitness community this year - and these interviews capture the essence of these conversations, dialogs, etc.   I have literally come away from every interview with game changing information.  Hope that you enjoy them too - as they are published around the 'net they'll be cataloged here.   Right now most of them are Dragon Door related, but who knows what the future may hold!   Are you an important person in the strength and fitness community?  Have we talked?  Do we need to talk?   Let me know!   Listening to and capturing these insights and experiences has not only been fun, but I've already been incorporating the knowledge into my own training and t
