  • 3 Strategies for Optimizing Mechanical Tension
    on January 15, 2020 at 9:07 AM

    Don't get hung up on one particular style of training but use variety of different exercises, rep ranges, and training styles. While chasing the pump is undoubtedly an effective way to stimulate hypertrophy, it’s not the only way to make your muscles grow. Mechanical tension, the force created when a muscle contracts isotonically against a load, is also a potent stimulator of muscle growth and should be incorporated into your weight training routine for maximal development.   read more

  • Write Your Training Programs Like a Book
    on January 12, 2020 at 11:22 PM

    A training cycle, like a story, has a beginning, middle, and end, and each has elements that are necessary for it to work. Do you remember your high school English class? When your teacher first taught you how to write an essay, they probably began first with how to create an outline. Once you format your outline, it will be easier to organize and fill in the details. With a framework to guide your thought process, you can write an entire essay from beginning to end.   read more

    on January 11, 2020 at 10:17 AM

    For most people, the deadlift looks like someone just walks up and pulls a bar off the floor, but that is already a misconception: it is a push, not a pull. The deadlift is an essential human skill. Learn to deadlift well, and you’ll save yourself years of back pain from lifting babies and groceries off the floor wrong. Better still, learn to hinge and then deadlift, and you’ll open up a tremendous world of strength, power, and higher quality movement.   read more

  • 6 Essential Mindsets For Getting Back In Shape
    on January 10, 2020 at 11:54 AM

    Once you learn to master your mindset you’ll gain the fluidity and inner resources to dominate your goals. Getting back in shape is a specific challenge that requires specific mindsets. Trust me, I’ve done it a bunch of times. Back in my twenties, I’d go hard for a year or two with something like boxing or jiu-jitsu, then be a bum for a year, then train for a half marathon or something. Lately, I’m in a much more steady, sustainable rhythm with my workouts. But back then I wanted to try a bunch of different stuff, and one thing that meant was getting back in shape—and getting in different kinds of shape—relatively often.   read more

  • Nothing Will Change This Year If You Don't
    on January 1, 2020 at 10:56 PM

    Maybe this year it is time for a different approach if you have been unsuccessful in the past. I’m not going to talk about SMART goal setting or the usual "new year, new me" bullshit. Like you, I have seen it every year for a long time. In fact, 2020 marks my 22nd year in the fitness industry. Personally I am not one for New Year’s resolutions. I do believe the end of the year and start of another is a great time for reflection, introspection and time to plan for a better future, but I also believe any time is a great time for doing self-reflection and the like. It doesn’t have to be at the beginning of the year.   read more
