Strange times call for strange graphics. This is a very "simple" kettlebell workout on a certain level, and if necessary can be scaled down (or up). Hopefully you all have been staying healthy and in good spirits. Though we've been finding that by the end of the week, especially after a number of video calls, zoom meetings, etc. there's a certain level of mental fatigue at … [Read more...] about 400 Kettlebell Swings Workout
And Now for Something Completely Different! Well, not entirely - the overall message is the same - being strong and being our best... no matter what! A few weeks ago I was already thinking about the ramifications of people suddenly having to work from home for the first time. Or even just the realities of a large number of people being cut off from their regular routines. It … [Read more...] about Tips For Working From Home and a New Free Program!
Around 2011 or so, these "300" workouts were very very popular. It started off because everyone and their uncle's pet cat was wanting to get in on the whole "this is what those shredded actors in that 300 movie did" craze. Oddly enough, some of us found that writing a workout to include 300 meaningful reps was actually not such a bad idea after all... especially for a full-body … [Read more...] about Revisiting a 300 Kettlebell and Bodyweight Workout…
I've enjoyed variations of this little combo for a couple of years, it's always a lot of fun and can even feel a little bit like a game. Most recently a friend and I did the workout for 10 rounds followed by a more focused strength workout. If you have a group, you can even perform this as an interesting relay race. No matter how many rounds you choose, be sure to record the … [Read more...] about Competitive Circuit Workout for Monkey Bars, Bodyweight Exercise, and Sprints
As usual, there's a lot of tough talk on the internet and Facebook about how New Years resolutions are useless. And I get it, I understand that for many people, resolutions fail year after year after year. Especially big, "unrealistic" resolutions... HOWEVER... No, I'm not sharing the missing adjective, that's between me and me. Sometimes these resolutions fail because … [Read more...] about The Value of a Fresh Start
Happy #MonkeyBarMonday everyone! For some of you who have seen the preview on Instagram, here's the whole thing... including the "spiders" obstacle. While I am not in the least bit afraid of spiders (and at one point had about seven pet tarantulas) I am not about to just shove my hand through a spiderweb with the spider sitting in it looking right at me. … [Read more...] about Monkey Bar Monday and Outdoor Flow State Fun with Slacklining
Fantastic to be featured on the PCC blog again yesterday with an experiment that you may remember started here. I've detailed more of what happened and added two sample deload workouts. Be sure to also read the comments over there for some very fun Q+A, including a part where a top commenter over there and I have a fairly indepth discussion about signs and signals the body … [Read more...] about PCC Blog Post (with two sample workouts), Yesterday’s Cardio Grudge-Match and a Grocery Haul Video
This morning was a flurry of activity as you slackers finally came back to work from long holiday weekends and all decided to call, email, text, facebook, twitter, etc. Joking about the slackers part, I just wanted to poke fun at you all - since it was hard to get a few tasks going while carrying on about 6 different trains of thought/conversations. But I'm pretty ok at that … [Read more...] about Ask GiryaGirl: 10,000 Swing Challenge Help! What do you eat for breakfast? Healthy Hot Cocoa?
This fun challenge I wrote up for a friend and I became a neat strength endurance challenge of the "accidental cardio" variety (in places). I've been gearing up for Zach Even-Esh's Underground Strength Coach workshop in Orlando, and essentially using that as an excuse to come up with more "General preparedness" workouts inspired by his book the Encyclopedia of Underground … [Read more...] about A Challenging But Oddly Stress-Relieving Workout
