One of my clients on the fitness business side of things introduced me to someone and something that I find rather unique and amazing. His name is Paul Gagne who is nicknamed “MacGuyver” (yes that’s how he spells it) by his contemporaries for being able to create exercises from a toothpick, bubble gum and Q-tip… well maybe that’s a stretch… but not that far.
Paul does seem to create exercises and exercise equipment out of thin air, but that’s not the only thing he does. He is a Posturologist… I know, what the hell is a Posturologist? Basically it is someone who evaluates your posture through a series of body awareness tests… finds the inadequacies in your musculature… and fixes them to improve your performance in just about everything you do or want to do. Pretty friggin’ cool if you ask me.
The video below does not show anything that has to do with Posturology (those will come) but it does have something that Paul created called a Radical Energy Systems Circuit for the Upper Body. I tried this circuit out for myself and it Radically kick the living shit out of me.
Take a gander at the video below to witness Paul down at the Half Moon resort in Jamaica performing his Radical Energy Systems Circuit for the Upper Body with his colleagues.
I wanted to post this months ago but basically life and my business got in the way… with that said, I think it’s time I share this with you… 7 months later.
Now Master RKC, (he was a Senior RKC when this was taped) David Whitley teaches my kettlebell not knowing ass how to properly perform a Turkish Get Up.
When I posted Part 1 of this video I got hammered with e-mails from non-RKC people telling me that there way was better, blah, blah, blah and more fuckin’ blah. In all honesty I would have to tell you I have since seen other so-called kettlebell experts instruct on the Turkish Get Up and it never compares to the “real” expert instruction by Master RKC… David Whitley.
Have a gander.

I called David Whitley (yes the guy that bends nails and shit!) and told him I was coming down to Louisville to check out Bootcamp Bootcamp an event for Fitness Professionals who own bootcamp businesses to learn how to make more money. Part of that learning process is learning new ways to torture clients and bootcamp customers… and kettlebells are a great way to crush a client in short amount of time.
Now the reason I called David to tell him this is because I knew there would be a shitload of Kettlebells in Louisville and I really wanted to work on my Turkish Get Up. I felt that I just couldn’t get it down correctly and there is no one in the world that I trust more than David. There’s a lot of moving parts to the Turkish Get Up and if you don’t keep your body in the correct positioning you can bet on injury.
I wanted to record this whole process because I have seen so many different variations of the Turkish Get Up and wanted to know the way that David taught it because it seems the natural way to do it. Watch this video and have fun learning how I learned the Turkish Get Up from the one and only Iron Tamer… David Whitley.

When my partner and professional power lifter AJ Roberts told me he was creating a FREE video that talks about the mistakes that most people when trying to increase their bench press…I was ecstatic.
AJ came over here from London to pursue his career as a professional powerlifter, and pursue he did…crushing personal bests like they were peanut shells on the floor, AJ soon became one of the top bench presser’s in the world.

Without a doubt the best strength coach in the nation has got to be Carlo Alvarez. I know everyone who is “High Intensity Training” will freak out and say what about Dr. Ken Liestner, or Matt Brzycki, or Randy Berning, or Ken Mannie and of course Mickey Marrotti… and then I would tell you to shut the f@#k up because although each one of those people are great in their own right , Carlo Alvarez is the culmination of all that talent, knowledge and respect for the iron game all in one.
He is a man that has ultimately paid his dues and can show you the battle scars to prove it.
What I love about Carlo is that he is the most grounded person I have come across…he has a job to do and he does it. He takes the responsibility of shaping the bodies, minds and lives of young men very seriously. If it is taking St. Xavier to the championships or helping a young football player get the scholarship he so desperately needs to better his life potential…Carlo is there to see him follow through.
Although we came up through the same ranks and Carlo is 10 years younger than me, I have great respect for him, his accomplishments and what the future will bring this “Noted Authority in Strength and Conditioning”…although I believe him to be the “Best Strength Coach in America”.
Check out the video interview I did with Carlo below:
