Lights, Camera…Water Manipulation

OMG- I just completed an awesome workout session of hang cleans, bench presses, snatch grip deadlifts. Apparently, that combo of compound exercises kicks your ass. After mustering the energy to waddle to my laptop I received an email from readers of my recent guest post on Unleash Your Alpha.

It’s 9 pm on Tuesday night. Over the last 2 hours you’ve been sipping your glass on water, scanning curiously over the latest workouts on various exercise websites.

Exercises to avoid: Adductor Abductor Machine

If you’re looking to maximally develop these areas learn to squat, lunge, deadlift, sprint, and move optimally rather than wasting your time. Although this wonderful device provides resistance for both adduction (bringing the legs together) and abduction… Keep Reading

Functional Training: You’ve Been Duped.

You’ve all been duped. Heres’s why: A few weeks ago I spent some time in a typical “big box gym.” Surrounded by people struggling through wobble boards and 10lb bosu biceps curls,  I nearly ran for cover to avoid being clubbed with a stray, flailing dumbbell.  This is not functional training. Rather it is  inefficient and potentially dangerous training. Functional training… Keep Reading

Total Body Exercise Selection

Total body workouts are the most time efficient manor in which to design a resistance training program. The entire body is designed to work in synchrony, with some muscles stabilizing while others contract to create movement. Most trainers and trainees look for a list of muscles stating whether they are prime movers or stabilizers to design a body part split.… Keep Reading
