Checking Out : The Strength Calisthenics Certification (SCC)

This sounds fantastic.

This sounds fantastic.

A stripped-down version of the 3-day PCC we looked at a while ago, the Strength Calisthenics Certification (SCC) sounds like the ideal introduction to the world of progressive calisthenics work.

Full details over on the Dragon Door page, but briefly; the course covers cornerstone movements such as push-ups, pull-ups, squats and bridges - in an intensive, 1-day seminar. Perfect.

NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you'd like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.

Find out what he's up to via Twitter, Facebook, the Daily 'Paper'; and of course his online home. Enjoy.

Straight to the Bar 2012 : Strength-Training Resources.

We've noted a number of superb resources in the newsletter this year. Here are a few personal favourites.

How They Got Started : John Keating.

How the enigmatic John Keating began.

The Magic 50.Although there was a little more time spent with the heavy stuff this week, most of the workouts seemed to be of the bodyweight conditioning variety. Apart from Monday's deadlifts that is.
Hindu Workout.

Dands (Hindu Push-ups), Bathiaks (Hindu Squats), and Gada (Mace) work.

Of course, if you enjoyed these, I'd highly recommend grabbing the Strength & Fitness Newsletter. Delivered weekly, and absolutely free.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar, or if you'd like to join the team of Moderators here (I love hearing about everyone's training approaches) - get in touch. And if you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
