    The complexity of fully training the back is illustrated by the vast array of machines and attachments available. A big, thick, well-developed back can elevate a physique from good to great. Sadly, the muscles of the back are the ones that most lifters struggle to develop the most.   This struggle is partly down to a bias towards training the mirror muscles, but it is also heavily influenced by poor exercise selection and rep execution.   read more

  • Returning to Your Sport From a Break Is Daunting, But Doable

    Please go easy, slow, and don’t kick your ass for letting it all go and having to start again.

What if you were on a break, and perhaps it lasted a few years?   As competitive athletes, we have a hard time taking it easy. The comparison of the glory days and what you are capable of plays into every workout. The frustration, the pain, the feeling of staring eyes as you gasp for breath, or are walking instead of running. All the while, you are screaming in your head:   read more

  • The Pelvis When You Run, Viewed From a Whole-Body Perspective

    on September 14, 2020 at 9:11 PM

If you start talking about building explosiveness with weights, someone always chirps about Olympic weightlifting movements. Learning Olympic lifts, though, is a slower and more arduous process than anyone who’s never tried it would think. There are more setbacks than breakthroughs. I should know, I dedicated a decade of my life to Olympic weightlifting.   read more

  • The Myth of Good Posture
    on September 11, 2020 at 1:48 PM

    The balance of strength and mobility across the muscles and joints of your body is what is really required when you think about the importance of posture.

    on September 3, 2020 at 12:16 PM

    A beginners guide to hypertrophy with a 4-week kickoff plan and a 12-week mass builder training program with additional guidance on implications for teens, women, and nutrition. The desire to build an impressive physique still holds true for a lot in the fitness world.

    on August 31, 2020 at 9:00 AM

    You mustn't get stuck in a dogmatic routine following an arbitrary rep count simply because that's what you've always thought was best. Most people are somewhat familiar with the association between exercise reps ranges and their targeted effect on the body during resistance training. The heaviest load one can lift at a given weight correlates with maximal strength, while anything one can do above 20 times or more clearly signifies muscular endurance.   read more
