Regular readers of this site know that it's no secret how much I love the Convict Conditioning series of books - so I really couldn't wait to get my hands on the two new (there will eventually be a total of SIX!)

And go get Raising the Bar now!!! :) It's a really great book for all levels - even if you're still working towards your first pull up!
Sometimes on Friday my small group class gets even smaller (some of the guys have a standing soccer commitment, etc.). Occasionally, I take this opportunity to write up a kind of "funtime" workout that is keeps the skill level basic.

I can't watch it without having that response. GAH!!!!)
So much inspiration and creativity stemming from the recent visit to NYC, Nimble Fitness, Equinox, and of course 's Saturday Morning class.

Lacking access to Thompson Square Park, I came up with a simple circuit punctuated with our favorite 2 hand (I had a variety of available so the exercises could be performed properly with the right amount of weight etc.).
We chose a nice shaded area with a large concrete pad, did our favorite warm up then proceeded to traverse down and back on the large pad with the following:
I keep checking to see if any of the neighbors are building an ark. Seriously... the rain—all week... rain rain rain rain rain. AAAGGGHHHH!!!!! This is especially annoying for people who like to walk to their errand destinations, who like tobeginner and clutch flags on any available safe pole, who like to do fingertip pull ups off of various pieces of architecture...
