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  :)

Dragon Door

Quick Kettlebell Workout, How to Assemble the Dragon Door Bodyweight Master Pull Up Bar, and More Exercise Ideas

Realized that I should probably space out the podcasts for you! There's two more episodes on the way soon, but in the mean time, I wanted to share a short workout (or what could be the meat and potatoes part of a session) I did last night.

GiryaGirl Blog - Kettlebell workout and how to assemble the Dragon Door Bodyweight Master Free Standing Pull Up Bar

I had limited time because of a bunch of computer related tasks and more importantly a friend was coming over to walk her puppies around my neighborhood (long story, but my neighborhood is way more fun).

Podcast Week? I'm a Guest on the Hammer Shed Podcast & Look What You Can Do with the New Pull Up Bar!!

Hammer Shed Podcast Guest: Adrienne HarveyHurrah! I was a guest on the Hammer Shed Podcast recently, and it looks like the page updated today!  Click here to listen and check it out - it's interesting to be the guest instead of the host, and requires actually being mindful to not snap into "host mode" and start asking the questions... caught myself a couple times, but it seems to have ended up just fine :) There's a lot of great episodes over there in fact, with people you may already know! Bret Hamilton, who was hosting the Hammer Shed Podcast that day is also a PCC Instructor, along with his awesome wife, Megan Hamilton.  The both attended and passed the PCC several months ago in New York.  They both train groups and individuals at Constant Forward Progress gym near Portland, Oregon.  You should also know... that they're hosting an SCC workshop there in February 2017. Hope to see you there! :)

In other news, I managed to assemble (and record an assembly video... which needs to be edited) the new Dragon Door Bodyweight Master Free Standing Pull Up Bar!  I love it!!! :) Was super thrilled and livestreamed some fun goofiness, which will also be edited down and put up on YouTube ASAP.  In the mean time, YES, you CAN flag on it...

I love this thing!!! :) They added a FAQ file to the pull-up bar page today as well - check it out here!

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!)

Testing Facebook Live with Neuro-Grips Exercises and Burpees!

Drone Fun (and burpees)!

Podcast with Matt Schifferle "The Fit Rebel", PCC Team Leader and Creator of the Red Delta Project

This week’s podcast guest is PCC Team Leader Matt Schifferle, “The Fit Rebel” and founder of The Red Delta Project website and the impressive Red Delta Project YouTube channel! He was recently promoted to PCC Team Leader and is a fantastic example of someone who has really worked hard on the way to that leadership position.

He has been training clients in Colorado and producing a TON of content for YEARS online. I hope you enjoy our conversation and insights as much as we did. We could have easily kept going for another hour I think! Rest assured there will be a part two. And not to sound like I used Matt, but our conversation helped me solidify a few things that I’d been trying to organize for a very large project…

New kettlebells on the way, the last few hours of a mega-sale, and a simple workout idea

I'm always scouting around for cool locations for videos etc. to keep things interesting. This past weekend I hit a small jackpot! I found a new extremely bright mural near what used to be Forbidden City (and according to someone working on the property, it's soon to be another location of the beloved local fusion restaurant, Tako Cheena.  So, pretty much good news for everyone. Mills50 is becoming even more of a great food destination.

Pistol on a Mural on Mills Ave

During Dragon Door's Black Friday Sale I bought two oddly sized kettlebells, a 26kg for me (I am once again working towards the Iron Maiden Challenge... which requires a pull-up, pistol, and press with a 24kg kettlebell...so you see what I'm doing there) and a 10kg kettlebell for bottom-up presses, etc. and to challenge a specific client with it... 10kg is also just a great interim size for various mobility drills as well.  But more on that later.
