  • Lateral Movement Training
    on September 17, 2019 at 10:18 PM

    We squat, we press, we deadlift, we push, we pull—all linear movements. Rarely do we incorporate lateral movements into our training plan and yet we really should. If you have ever played a sport—unless your sport was rowing—you probably appreciate the ability to move laterally, meaning the ability to effectively move sideways.   Yet our training often doesn’t reflect this. We squat, we press, we deadlift, we push, we pull—all linear movements. Rarely do we incorporate lateral movements into our training plan.   But in all reality we should prioritize lateral movement training. Below are three reasons why and three ways to do it.   read mor

  • Diversify Your Training Portfolio
    on September 16, 2019 at 10:19 PM

    Always remember to stay open minded to new ways of lifting in order to maximize your genetic potential. As an aspiring professional bodybuilder, entering the area of Chinese weightlifting in some regard is foreign. Why would a bodybuilder train two times daily for two weeks without bodybuilding training being the cornerstone of the programming? Sure, the front squat, back squat, deadlift, pull up, dip, overhead press, and weighted abdominal sit-ups are a backbone to overall strength, but to most, they are irrelevant and not sport-specific. read mor

  • Is Training to Failure Right for You?
    on September 16, 2019 at 5:00 PM

    Haphazardly loading a barbell and doing one set until you fall in exhaustion shouldn’t be the plan for the majority of lifters. I’ll bet you’ve heard of training to failure. It’s popular in the always do more attitude that’s seeped into the strength and fitness communities. This style of training usually makes the mind wander to images of Arnold and other classic bodybuilders. They grunt loudly in dusty gyms and fall on the floor after doing so many reps. Nearly everyone associates this with good blue-collar work. read mor

  • The Best Tool For Overall Health
    on September 15, 2019 at 8:51 PM

    For optimal health we need to go to a deeper level that encompasses so much more than just macros. It is tough to figure out exactly what and how much to eat when you embark on a workout or weight loss plan. There is so much conflicting information online and so many different diets around. Having a good idea of what makes up the food we eat and how much energy these foods contain is essential, and I think everyone should know the basics.   read mor

  • A Training Plan For Masters 50+ Rowers
    on September 13, 2019 at 1:40 PM

    This training plan is designed for the adult rower looking to hold on to aerobic endurance and strength.   Exercise is such an important part of life, but can get overlooked when life takes priority. And staying truly fit is even harder with age. Although your body holds on to aerobic endurance a little longer as you age, your power output can drop dramatically if it is not properly maintained.   read mor

  • The Athlete's Friend, Eggs: Best Buying Practices
    on September 12, 2019 at 7:29 PM

    Fun fact in case you missed it—the only difference between brown and white eggs are that brown eggs come from chickens with brown feathers and white eggs come from chickens with white feathers. Egg shopping used to be simple—white eggs or brown eggs. End of story.   (To which the answer was a no-brainer for yolk-lovers. We always flock to brown eggs because their yolks just always seem a bit richer, don’t they?)   read mor

  • Bulletproof Your Bum
    on September 11, 2019 at 4:15 PM

    Bum augmentation without surgery. What could be better than that? It’s a great time in the world, isn’t it? A time where we seem to appreciate a little heft in the bum more than ever.   Whether we were moving in that direction already or not—or whether Baby Got Back or Jennifer Lopez spurred on the movement in the 90s—everywhere I go I come across women, especially, who ask me how to build a little more muscle mass plumpness in their bums.   read mor

  • Lack of Sleep Is Killing Your Body Composition
    on September 10, 2019 at 4:40 PM

    Most people aren’t aware of just how detrimental sleep deprivation can be on body composition. If you’ve been pursuing an aesthetic physique for any measure of time you’ve likely heard how important it is to dial in your training and diet. Although these are critical aspects, one topic that doesn’t receive the attention it deserves is proper recovery—specifically when it comes to sleep.   read mor

  • Young to Really Young: Beginning Olympic Weightlifting
    on September 10, 2019 at 4:23 PM

    A never ending debate in many sports, but especially in weightlifting, concerns when a young athlete should begin training in the discipline. A never-ending debate in many sports, but especially in weightlifting, concerns when a young athlete should begin training in the discipline.

  • The Relationship Between Training and Hypoglycemia
    on September 9, 2019 at 3:27 PM

    The effects low blood sugar can have on training is something both athletes and coaches need to be aware of. Three years ago, I had to undergo multiple health screenings to stay on my father’s insurance plan. When the doctor called me back and told me I was hypoglycemic (meaning I have low blood sugar), I was surprised, but when thinking back it totally made sense.   According to Medical News Today, “Hypoglycemia occurs when blood sugar levels drop below 70 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl). Severe hypoglycemia can be life-threatening if a person does not receive treatment.   read mor
