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  :)

BONUS Podcast Mini Episode: The SCC-HKC Combo with Adrienne Harvey, Senior PCC and Mike Krivka, Master RKC

Bonus Episode!

This is the first in a series of 4 bonus episodes loosely focused on topics related to the SCC (Strength Calisthenics Certification) and HKC (Hardstyle Kettlebell Certification) workshop combo that Mike and I will be leading on June 11th and 12th in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  This will be the first ever combo workshop weekend for the SCC/HKC, and if you register for both, you'll save $, if you register for both before April 30th, you'll save even more.  Mike's facility, CrossFit Koncepts is absolutely ideal for BOTH workshops and I really look forward to teaching there again. 

Show Notes:

A Monkey Bar Monday WORKOUT with Video!

Those who train with me know how much I love finding a new "fit trail"! Imagine the delight in finding a fit trail AND a large open field full of mostly soft grass, but not chemically treated to the point of the local soccer fields (those make me itch and that's freaky... and scary because... chemicals!).  While this requires a little "scouting" to make sure no hands end up in ant hills, I always scout out the ground where I will be flinging myself around anyway.  No nasty surprises, please...

Monkey Bar Monday Workout!

Anyway, in honor of "Monkey Bar Monday" below is a workout video that I finally got around to editing for you! The circuit includes pullups, kettlebells, cartwheels, and of course the monkey bars!

It takes courage to do cartwheels as an adult... watch how bad they are on my non-dominant side! HAHAHAH!!!

There's 3 rounds of this in the video! :) Hope you enjoy!

Podcast with Kirsty Grosart, World Class Handstand and Bodyweight Strength Expert, GMB Coach

I've noticed Kirsty Grosart's achivements and extreme skills for years online. It was a ton of fun to get her on the GiryaGirl.com podcast! Admittedly, I'm being super-self-serving by trying to get a whole bunch of tips to improve my handstand skills, but since I'm sharing it with you, that makes it ok, right?

This super fun episode is linked below for online listening via iTunes, Stitcher, and now fancy slideshow version on Youtube! (Which do you enjoy most? Please tell me in the comments section at the bottom of this post) I even made you show notes again. And again, let me know if that's something you enjoy or not (it's a lot of work, so if you don't care, please tell me!)

I was a guest on the Red Delta Project Podcast, Plus a Bodyweight Only Workout, and a Video

The Red Delta Project PodcastA few days ago I had the honor of being the first ever guest on PCC Team Leader, Matt Shifferle's Red Delta Project Podcast. Once again, as when he was recently the guest on MY podcast, we had a ton of fun discussing some of our favorite topics, calisthenics, the PCC, great food, training strategies and more.

At the risk of bragging, it seems like we get around to some pretty powerful stuff in conversations. Hope you enjoy this episode titled "Tackling Bodyweight Training with Adrienne Harvey"! And did I REALLY divulge a fat loss tip? Yes indeed!

Listen to The Red Delta Project Podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, or directly from his website.

Shortly after he attended the PCC quite a while ago, I interviewed Matt for Dragon Door and instantly realized how creative, cool, and skilled Matt is, so be sure to check out his extensive website, podcast, and substantial YouTube channel!

How to Join the 1%... of Kettlebell and Calisthenics Strength

I forget what business summit I was attending but for good or for ill my behaviors as an iconoclast, contrarian, and overall weirdo were being verbally encouraged by the speaker.

Raised Hands Push-Up Variation

It's fun to finally be commended for going against the tide, of swimming upstream, and NOT doing what everyone else is doing. The speaker was saying that the much maligned "1%"--at least the part that worked for it, and didn't just inherit it... or those that inherited it and kept it--were there because of BEHAVIOR... namely rare behaviors. It was pretty obvious, pretty quickly that these "rare" behaviors were the same across many different fields, not just business, marketing etc. The main thing was DO the WORK.  Focus on the basics, and DO THE WORK.
