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  :)

Interview with Mike Medrano, Pro MMA Fighter and RKC Instructor

I really enjoyed talking with Mike Medrano, a recently certified RKC Instructor who is a pro MMA fighter, and also just an all around very cool guy.  His lifelong interest in lifting and athletics have helped form his unique year round approach to training.  Check out his interview here on DragonDoor.com.  In other news, click over to Instagram and see if you can play the little game going on.   I'll be curious to see how

BIG Celebration at Dragon Door - Offer is Over, But Here's a Workout!

It's the official Dragon Door Dragon!Yesterday, Dragon Door celebrated reaching over 60,000 likes on their official Facebook page by offering free shipping for the contiguous USA on everything for 24hrs only.    Hopefully you were able to take advantage of this offer—I did notice that readers of GiryaGirl.com did seem to take action pretty quick, judging from your clicks!!!   I also noticed that many of you were VERY smart and used this as an opportunity to order some seriously heavy kettlebells

Yesterday's small group workout was designed with heavy swings in mind to further celebrate this free shipping theme (sorry delivery drivers... it's going to be a rough for you).   So if you have ordered something big and heavy, or you have some big and heavy kettlebells handy, this simple workout might be fun -- or use it as a template to create your own (and share it with us in the comments below if you don't mind)

Circuit Workout for Kettlebells and Muscle Ropes -- with Mini Product Review!

Our kettlebell small group is a tough crowd.  While most of our workouts focus on kettlebell exercises and bodyweight exercises, we love to mix in some other simple tools from time to time.

 

PCC Blog, an update on the 18kg and 22kg Kettlebells and Countess Chocula Protein Shake Recipe!

There's a new post on the Progressive Calisthenics Blog from earlier this week - and you'll also get to see two photos from the upcoming Dragon Door book, Neuro-Mass!!!   I'm still just so honored to be included on this project.   Anyway - the post linked above is about how my regular training with kettlebells and Convict Conditioning really prepared me for the unknowns of the photoshoot!  Should also add that the first ever Progressive Calisthenics Certification Workshop has sold out - but do

A Challenge, A Weekend Workout, Chocolate Reviews and Other Important Stuff

Its always fun to visit other gyms, hang out etc. Inside is very nice, but of course we had to get grungy and throw tires around, push prowlers, and Swing kettlebells instead. Inside we did a Primal Move warm up, played with the really great pull up bar setup (I managed to do another couple muscle ups), and then some really weird pull ups on this very bizarre and hard to hang on to thing from Rogue called a "dog bone." I'll add photos of that later today. Anyhow here's what we did outside!  Huge thanks to David Crump, a highly skilled local personal trainer and HKC here in Orlando - you can visit his site at DC-Training.net
