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  :)

A quick personal note about why kettlebells and body weight training work so well for me....

Some days are crazier than others, some are not crazy at all - those are usually the ones I reserve for massive amounts of sleeping.    One of the great things about kettlebell and bodyweight training that has been SO crucial for me is the efficiency of the training sessions themselves.   No more boring hours and hours at the gym, not to mention travel time to and from - which if you're in a heavily populated city can be a real issue.   So many people use "I don't have time!" as an excuse to neglect the NECESSITY of regular exercise, and frankly, kettlebells just blast right through that excuse.   Right along with "but I don't have room for exercise equipment...".   Anyway enough ranting.

In Case You Missed It! DragonDoor.tv

The new episode of DragonDoor.tv includes a video clip of me assembling Girya Girl Style Bacon Cheeseburger as the Dragon Dish! Enjoy the whole program though - DragonDoor.tv is always informative and entertaining. I met the host of the show,Amanda Salas, on the shuttle bus to the Orlando RKC site back in October. We had too much fun twittering back and forth and being silly - she's awesome!

RKC Orlando 2010 Recap Part One: Thursday Night

After getting settled in (and not having a confrontation with the VERY aggressive bell boys) at the Disney area, official hotel, I made sure to fire up my netbook to see about the wifi - little did I know that after Saturday I just wouldn't have it in me to type for a while.   Then, of course it was time to listen to a short list of "motivating songs" which are probably not motivating to anyone but me, and will not be named here because you will have proof of my "total weirdo" status.
