Ready to see some serious conditioning work?

On 15th October, Rob Russell will be doing a Sledgehammer Challenge for Charity, attempting to strike a tyre (tire if you prefer) 1,000 times in 1 hr with a 25kg Hammer. To assist in fundraising he's written a superb 45 page ebook, which he'll be giving away in exchange for a minimum £2 donation. Beautiful.

Mike Gillette's 'Rings of Power' explains the various ways to use - progressively - this incredible tool. With clear emphases on both strength and rehabilitation, it's an ideal starting point for many. Particularly the 'over 40' (of which I'm a proud member) crowd. For a glimpse into the world of 'Rings of Power', a brief quote from the review page :
If you care about getting strong, staying strong, and remaining injury free, Rings of Power is essential reading. I incorporated rings into my own training program a couple of years ago and am glad I did. At 45 years old, I am able to continue my strength pursuits unhindered by the joint and tendon injuries that plague many in the over-40 athletic community. - Dr Chris Hardy
Mike Gillette's 'Rings of Power'. Perfect.

NB : as a bonus, in addition to the ebook; donors will be entered into a raffle to win some fantastic strength-training equipment. And knowing Rob, it'll be top-quality stuff.
