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  :)

Turn Up the HEAT! Sissy Challenge Revisited a Short but TOUGH Workout

Turn Up the HEAT kettlebell workout from GiryaGirl.com

Working from home is great if you have the personality for it. I'm very grateful to have been able to have this level of autonomy for such a long time. If we want to get technical, I've been in charge of my own schedule for the past 17 years (remember, I'm 40 and all) as an entrepreneur, consultant, and fitness instructor. A great trick to have up your sleeve no matter where you work is a quick, intense, nasty little workout that will get a whole lot done in a short period of time. Kettlebells are especially suited to this kind of activity.

It's Almost Conference Time! More Info Soon!

More info soon, but there will be a lot of fun livestreams happening on Facebook and youtube!  Don't miss out! Watch this space as well as Dragon Door's Facebook Page.  I'm also going to share some fun rebroadcasts later as well.

For now, check out these fun videos I made for you earlier this week (Burpees theme is unintentional... I dunno why that happened!)

Down by Twos... a Kettlebell and Bodyweight Workout

This is another fun "benchmark" workout that definitely let us all know where we are with our conditioning.   Amusingly, the Primal Move warm up, Convict Conditioning Trifecta, the sequence and then the Primal Move cool down took about 40 minutes.  According to my Armour39, during that 40 minutes, 409 calories were destroyed.  That wasn't the goal, but it does explain why I eat so much sometimes.  Anyhow, here's what happened:

Using Google Maps, I measured out a 30 yard straight run in our park, then grabbed a selection of kettlebells, so there'd be choices!

Playing with the Basics Kettlebell Workout

While the weather is still nice, take your favorite moderate sized kettlebell outside for this odd little basics combo.   Some of it is designed to remind one of my classes in particular to hinge at the hips putting those rears way back during swings.   And well, everyone can always stand to review the basics - besides - in RKC style kettlebell training, our basics are POWERFUL basics.

Simplicity Workout

Monday I decided to give the beginners group a mini intro to the much beloved or hated (depends on the day and who you are...?!) Sissy Challenge.  They went on the moderate/light sized kettlebell side of things, but if you want to ramp up the "fun" use a heavy kettlebell for this one:

 

Start with your favorite Joint Mobility warm up exercises-

We then continued with the new form of the quick kettlebell warm up from strength coach and good friend Tim Shuman, RKC2:

  • 10 deadlifts, 10 swings

This also allowed me to do some minor form correction and a little "ok, I see we forgot a couple things over the weekend" review.
