Overloaded Structure Training at the Gym

For many athletes, we have been able to return to the gym. It’s great and most people are incredibly happy and feel blessed for a day or two. Then, reality sets in: I have lost strength. And while the reality is that you probably haven’t lost strength neurologically, your body is slightly deconditioned. Getting yourself […]

Build Back Your Strength at Home!

I have seen some pretty unique training ideas floating around neighborhoods in the last few months. The COVID Pandemic caused some serious problems and continues to do so but one of the positives was that people got outside and got creative to get their training in. However, we are creatures of habit and often think […]

Stamina through Trisets

COVID quarantine was a challenging time for many. But for some, it gave them an opportunity like they had rarely experienced as an adult: a chance to work from home, not have to travel and thus be able to workout daily! We advocated for our clients to be active daily, and if that meant doing […]

My Experience Without Carbs, Caffeine, Sugar or Alcohol

I know, everyone’s first thought is: NO WAY! There is no way you could go any amount of time without carbs, sugar, caffeine AND alcohol. Maybe eliminate one for a month… Well, to be honest, that is how I felt initially as well. So I started with caffeine in February 2020. I knew I had […]

Build Stamina for the Gym at Home!

Who has ever used the excuse, “I just don’t have time to workout”? If you didn’t raise your hand you either get paid to workout (awesome for you) or you are lying 🙂 Here’s the reality, sometimes life gets in the way: work, kids, social obligations or you just get lazy. But if you have […]

Be a Crouching Tiger and Attack Your Workout

Becoming a Crouching Tiger is probably easier than you think. It doesn’t require you to become an expert swordsman, in this instance. And, if you aren’t necessarily a fan of bear crawl variations because of how it bothers your wrist or elbow, the Crouching Tiger crawl might be perfect for you! This crawling variation is […]

Strut Your Stuff Before Your Workout Even Starts!

Sometimes you want to strut like a cowboy from a western. Walking down the street like you own the town. And on training days where you do some seriously heavy and long farmer’s carries or a big ruck walk, lugging 50 or 60 lbs on your back for a few miles, you might experience something […]

The Key to a Big Bench Day is the Cricket

Everyone loves a big upper body day and most people that we work with, men and women, love a big bench day. But those days are the most fun when they go well. Enter the cricket. Think back to Will Smith in the first Men in Black movie. The first gun he got as an […]

Bounce Like a Rabbit for a Great Squat Day

While rabbits may be an ongoing nuisance in my backyard, they have one thing going for them that I’m always jealous of: some thick and strong hips! So it’s only logical that if we are trying to do an animal pattern to prepare for a squat day, the rabbit hop is an excellent one to […]

Getting COVID Fit!

We have been talking about this Pandemic and COVID-19 for months. However, the more potentially dangerous issue long term is what happened during the Safer at Home orders. Some have termed it the “COVID 15” Alcohol consumption is substantially higher than years past.¹ Travel for work isn’t as necessary so non-exercise activity is down. The […]
