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  :)

Here's What I Think About Dan John's New Book, The Hardstyle Kettlebell Challenge!

Dan John's The Hardstyle Kettlebell Challenge Book Cover

Was so proud to see that Dragon Door chose to include my endorsement of Dan John's book (out on eBook TODAY, paperback is coming in about 6 weeks) on the promo page and within the book itself. Here's how I feel about the book and how much I would recommend that you check it out if you are even vaguely interested in kettlebells!  If you love working with kettlebells or are an instructor, then this is pretty much a "must have". While it's easy to dismiss the HKC skills as for "beginners" that's a big mistake. Every time I revisit these solid basics, my training and my students' and clients' training improves too.

ANYWAY here was my response to the pre-release version of the book (which from what I can tell is the exact same as the ebook that went live today!


Much like the HKC itself, Dan John’s new book drills down to the absolute essentials of kettlebell strength and conditioning. Ultra practical, the HKC book includes all the necessities, how to use them, plus how to create programs for nearly any fitness level or athletic need.

While some may think that the three exercises of the HKC, the Swing, get-up, and goblet squat can’t possibly be enough, after 7 years as an RKC, and 6 as an RKC-II, Dan John’s HKC book has inspired me to simplify my training, and that of my clients—with great results. The “basics” are so important to Hardstyle kettlebell training, and this book doesn’t just make the case, it shows you exactly how to implement these crucial basics for any level, too.

I would recommend this book for kettlebell instructors and enthusiasts at all levels.
