Before we get to the meat of today’s post I have a few housekeeping items to cover:

1.  I have three elite online training spots remaining through my online training platform with Trainerize.

The platform itself will never go away,  and will always be available to start whenever you’d like, but this will be the only time you’ll be able to purchase month #1 at a discount.

All you have to do is fill out the coaching form here, work with me to execute a kick-ass plan, and damn, you’ll be lookin’ good! The app lets you bring your online training with you to the gym with full videos, descriptions, and tracking software through your smartphone app. The app is free and allows us to communicate, make changes, and alter your training as needed to keep your high performance gains coming. Pretty snazzy stuff. 

2. In a few weeks I’m rolling out a brand new group training program on Fitocracy. What is it?
Minimalist Muscle Building. I designed this program for one thing in mind: Big results with minimal equipment, and minimal time. Workouts don’t need to be complicated marathon sessions, they just need to be effective. Here, we maximize program efficiency to get you results in the most efficient means possible. Plus, it’s free join Fitocracy and an economical way to get great coaching with me in a small group setting.

Check out the group here and join today, you won’t be disappointed. Here

Now, if some douche-canoe at your gym gripes about you having your phone out in the gym under the impression you’re taking selfies you can say back “Back off!” I’m Getting Swole with Bach Performance!”

Jump Squats to Bust Your Squat Plateau

Having great squat technique and lifting respectable weight has tons of benefits: tons of trunk and core stability, improved, athleticism, lean muscle, and overall enhanced sexification.

The thing is: Plateaus occur and they’re very hard to conquer.

The biggest mistake I see people make is only focus on maximum strength rather than explosiveness. Yea, it’s great to be strong, but it’s epic to display strength fast in the form of power. When you have both you open up a whole pandoras box of awesome athleticism.

The kicker?
You need to know how to improve explosiveness in a way that enhances your squat numbers and athleticism without excessive risk to your body. Luckily, I have you covered. There’s a whole host of benefits and considerations you will see. In my recent guest post on Blood and Iron I discuss jump squat variations, show some videos of my jumping skills,  and which types of jumps you need to  incorporate to jump past your squat plateau. Plus, there’s a pretty sweet workout to safely and incorporate jump squats into your program.
