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  :)

Book

So Much Excitement, So much To Share! (and a Kettlebell Workout)

First off, if you haven't already checked it out,  Explosive Calisthenics (sometimes referred to by enthusiasts and superfans as Convict Conditioning Vol 3) is now out in both paperback and eBook form! While the eBook might be convenient in some ways, like the fact that you wouldn't need to wait on or pay for shipping, the paperback is just really a while lot of fun.  It's a full color large format book just like the original Convict Conditioning, and Vol 2 and chock full of inspiring photos of the progressions to some of the most impressive bodyweight skills on the planet... including several that scare the heck out of me (back flip, front flip!).  No disrespect to anyone, but the back flip and front flip guys probably impress me the most out of anyone pictured in the book.  You'll even find a couple of photos of some people in there you may recognize as well! But as we all know, while the photos may be cool, the info is what we're after and that is in this book by the TRUCKLOAD!

The other fun item to share today is an article and bodyweight workout featured in Experience Life Magazine - Jen Sinkler wrote the article and she quotes the Kavadlo bros and myself in it - AND there's a bodyweight workout with little pictures that you can do this weekend.  (Let me know how it goes).

Day 6 - #GiryaGirlGame Scavenger Hunt (Favorite Book Edition)

6th assignment!

Please read all the rules and instructions if you haven't already on the main page: Scavenger Hunt Instructions and Rules.

A friend stopped by to check in the other day and to discuss her current dietary strategy and how to improve it.   The great news is that she's lost almost 6lbs of body fat in 1 month of sporatically attending my small group classes while eating the Personal Trainer Food "Plan 1" breakfast-lunch-dinner-2-snacks (not even too strictly... grrrrrrr) this past 28 days.    The other great news is that she looks and feels better already -- and that's just after 28 days.  So, no matter what your particular strategy is, stick to it!   The reason I bring it up is that I don't often have guests (if at all) and she was fairly boggled by my book collection... in addition to nearly the entire Dragon Door catalog of books and DVDs I have paperbacks and hardcovers on just about every topic, dubious and otherwise--including some vintage 1980s "women's workout" books with some of the most hilariously inappropriate workout attire you've ever seen.
