Brace for Impact!

Apr 24, 2013 06:01 PM

People train for all kinds of reasons. Health, functionality or vanity is usually at the top of the list. My own training goals are a bit different. I perform strength stunts. I use this term as an umbrella under which such things as steel-bending, brick and board breaking and a myriad of other feats which can involve electricity, fire or

Mike Gillette’s Strongman Feat Makes Ripley’s Believe It Or Not

Apr 22, 2013 10:21 AM

Well, when it comes to your abs, how tough are you, really? Do you just have a pretty-boy six pack—all show and no real go when it comes to handling impact? Or do you have the kind of snarly strength that can withstand 3 tons of impact force slamming into your midsection? Dragon Door’s new author, Mike Gillette, has exactly that kind of strength—and proved it recently to the world, through Ripley’s Believe It Or Not...

Dragon Door Interviews Joseph Morstad, RKC

Apr 19, 2013 10:30 AM

Joseph Morstad: With my IBD flare and hospital visit in January of this year, I was unable to eat, incredibly weak, and fatigued. When I came back I started with parts of the Turkish get up. I'd start on my back rolling to pressing the kettlebell overhead. Core and glute exercises were very helpful. Passing the RKC in August showed me that I was strong. I really believe that experience stayed with me and helped me through my IBD recovery in January of this year.

Dragon Door Interviews Steven Head, HKC

Apr 19, 2013 10:30 AM

Steven Head: Playing baseball is my passion and the focus of my conditioning—almost everything in my own training is aimed at improving my conditioning for baseball. And, all of the HKC skills are essential for my strength, conditioning, and injury prevention. Even though I'm 55 years old and playing on a 25 and over team, I can keep up with my teammates and opponents. Many of them are half my age! I play second base, third base and shortstop.

Dragon Door Interviews Master RKC, Max Shank about the Highland Games Regional Championship

Apr 19, 2013 10:30 AM

Max Shank: I think the Highland Games are really great, honestly. It's such a good outlet for someone who's built up a level of explosiveness from kettlebell swings. With just a little extra time in training, you can have a really good time competing. Everyone is really nice, and you're almost certain to be one of most in-shape people participating.

Bench Press: Good, Bad, or Ugly?

Apr 17, 2013 06:01 PM

Back in the Old Timer days, the power clean was the staple lift that measured the strength and power of Athletes. For some unexplainable reason, the bench press replaced the PC as the measuring stick for gauging athletic strength. Guys just love to bench. For obvious reasons, the bench is an important exercise for the body building and power lifting culture

Dragon Door Interviews Beth Andrews, RKC

Apr 12, 2013 10:30 AM

Beth Andrews: I started with small kettlebells, a 4kg and an 8kg—only 10lbs and 18lbs—but I was in total shock. I've been lifting for a long time as well as training people in a gym for years. It was hard to believe that a little bitty weight kicked my butt. After switching to just kettlebells for about eight months, I went back to bench press and found I could do sets of five with my previous max. ​

Dragon Door Interviews Helder Gomes, RKC

Mar 29, 2013 10:30 AM

Helder Gomes: Being in the computer business, I was very familiar with the internet, and stumbled across someone using kettlebells. This person had many previous injuries, was older than me, and was doing things I never imagined I could do as a Marine, let alone as a disabled veteran. Of course, I was curious and soon found Dragon Door and the RKC.

Dragon Door Interviews Kim Vigsbo, RKC Team Leader

Mar 29, 2013 10:30 AM

Kim Vigsbo: You need to be safe and execute good form, but I want to bring the love and joy for kettlebells. I love simplicity. I want to show people that just because I'm over 50 years old, I'm not done training or taking care of myself. My fiancée is 55 years old, and is one of the strongest women I know. I’m eating and training right—there’s a reason I look the way I do at 54.
