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!

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  :)

Here's How My Mom Gave Me a Huge Health Advantage

It's no mystery that I like to think, and this means I really like thinking about thinking, and figuring out "why". Day after day after day I see a lot of stuff written and complaining about women's poor self image and how it puts them at a disadvantage for living healthy lives.  These negative mental patterns are also a direct threat to self esteem, implementing their own self-care and maintenance, and most of course, any "weighty issues." Lately, I've been trying to figure out why so many people were having hang-ups with certain things.

The Kettlebell Goddess Workout DVD

Type of Product: 
DVDs and Videos
Summary
Rating: 
5
Pros: 
  • Great instruction
  • Mix and match workouts

Cons: 
  • Sometimes the camera switches sooner than I would want it to - but you should watch the instruction portion with your remote handy anyway.

  • Sometimes people think there are too many options
  • Very basic production (not really an issue but whatever)


Andrea Du Cane's Kettlebell Goddess Workout DVD

Women's Issues.......

It's sometimes hard for me to talk about this stuff without sounding like a ranting conspiracy theorist, or triggering very emotional discussions - which sometimes are frankly painful to watch as they unfold on the internet.   There is/was a photo circulating around Facebook the other day (imagine that!) and the photo itself was very cool - featuring an attractive 'plus sized' model in a artistic nude.   What was uncool was the giant, babbling caption someone had attached to it - which was probably meant to be a positive body statement, but - typically - contained a bit of a backhand to anyone who didn't fit their particular feminine ideal.  The other thing that drove me
