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  :)

Kettlebells

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

 

Halloween, Primal Move, Kettlebells and all that good stuff

First off, HAPPY HALLOWEEN, everyone! :)  Feel free to grab a pumpkin (not carved, that's cheating) and use it to do some Russian Twists, or as a medicine ball replacement!   I have some friends who have developed pumpkin-based boot camp workouts!   Even though I am a total "choco-snob" there's a distinct chance that I will probably eat a "fun size" Snickers or maybe a Reeces peanut butter pumpkin-shaped thing at some point today for the sheer nostalgia.   Have a small treat, but make sure you share more than you eat - and steer clear of any real 'omg gotta eat the whole bag now" trigger-items... Out of respect for one of my close friends in particular, I won't even name the exact item I'm thinking of right now...

Ask GiryaGirl: Convict Conditioning for Women, Why not 1,000 swings?

Last week was the NPE Mega Training seminar/workshop/event, and I was around to help out and occasionally answer questions, etc.

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".  

Forgive me, I couldn't resist.... Talk of Amasai, Park Workouts, Al Kavadlo and more!

Poking around the Beyond Organic website yesterday, and placing the rest of my order I discovered that they have UPDATED the Amasai variety pack to include the new flavors. (Mom's Mother's Day gift was the first part of this month's order - and you should be very very envious of what she received.)   Those of you who have tried Amasai know of it's incredible nutritional impact, versatility and delicious flavor...
