  • Loaded Carries Boring? Nah! They're Essential
    on July 20, 2019 at 7:44 PM

    Oddly, carrying is one of the most common things we do in life—and also it is one of the most challenging things. We often talk about the importance of four movements: pushing, pulling, squatting, and hinging. All the while forgetting about one very important, albeit less sexy, way we move: Carrying!   Oddly, carrying is one of the most common things we do in life—and also it is one of the most challenging things. Just ask any new mother who spends half her day walking around with a baby (why is it that all babies can sense when you’re sitting and scream bloody murder until you reluctantly stand up and walk around with them?).   read mor […]

  • Hacking the Hack Squat

    The hack squat was originated in Germany and derives from the word hackle (heel). You'll need to know more than that to make it work for you, though. Now say that three times fast! Welcome back everyone to another episode of Breaking Down Your Workout Library. Thanks to the team at Breaking Muscle, I’ve been guided to produce another breakdown of one of my favorite exercises.   read mor […]

  • The Efficacy of Percentage-Based Training Programs
    on July 14, 2019 at 11:54 AM

    How do we make sure we’re using the correct weights as we base percentages off of a max that may change during a two or three-month long training block? I’ll defend percentage-based training program's efficacy for powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting until the bitter end, or when I’m muttering to myself on a park bench wearing a sleeping bag as a sport coat.   I’ve tested, to the best of my understanding, most methods of building strength for myself and my athletes. And I haven’t found a more reliable way to continuously improve in power other than using stable markers based on maxes, even if those maxes are estimated.   read mor […]

  • Use Bands to Build Bulletproof Abs
    on July 8, 2019 at 8:37 PM

    Bands are particularly useful for the core because they force you to stay as tight as possible and help to create tension in your body. Physio bands are one of my best friends in the gym. They’re great for shoulder health, great for activating my sleepy lats before a big pulling day, and even useful for building some muscular endurance through exercises like lat pulldowns and triceps extensions.   Lately, I’ve also been using them for my core—to bulletproof those abs!   read mor […]

  • Add New Disciplines to Your Training, Part 1: How Do I Choose?
    on July 1, 2019 at 7:57 AM

    You want to add yoga to your Olympic weightlifting or try martial arts with your powerlifting? Let's see what makes sense.   The question will always creep up, in one form or another. Someone may ask how to include yoga into their strength training schedule. Someone else, who’s defined their fitness through bodybuilding workouts, wants to know how to get over the mental hurdle of cutting back on their gym time to start running outside.   read mor […]

    on June 30, 2019 at 4:32 PM

    People need more physical movement, more time in nature, and more connection. What if living life made you healthy?

You’d run, jump, swim, climb, push, and pull without having to plan time and without ever feeling compelled to track how many calories you were burning.   read mor […]

  • The Future of Video Replay for Weightlifting
    on June 27, 2019 at 8:57 PM

Now that I have returned home and the dust has settled it is time to go over the impressions gained.   read mor […]
