Dieting is 75% of Your Success!

jon-andersen1aSummertime is here! The time of year when everyone starts peeling off layers and browning up their white, pasty folds after a long, gluttonous winter. All winter long you have made and broken promises to yourself about getting in shape for the summer… mostly dietary promises.

Fundamentals of Overhead Pressing

funda

The term Bend the bar is used ubiquitously within the Powerlifting community and from my experience is misinterpreted and/or misapplied. Bending the bar or pulling the bar apart is a way of creating tension into the bar versus passively letting the bar sit in the hands/shoulders.

Beginner Deep Water Squat Workout

jonBeginner Deep Water Squat Workout

By Jon Andersen

 

Squatting for me is a spiritual experience.  Squatting isn’t just an exercise, it is a place where I can lose myself and find myself all in one set. The squat is a movement to make your whole body strong and if you do it right it will make you mentally strong. Squatting can put you in the face of adversity faster and more effectively than any other exercise in the gym. If you’ve got the sack you can stretch your work capacity and mental toughness to places beyond your imagination. The squat is the best, most aggressive way possible to increase mental toughness.

My Journey to a 300LB Overhead Press

scott-wallace-overheadMy Journey to a 300LB Overhead Press

By Scott “Crusher” Wallace

I have been competing in Strongman since June 2012 and am currently getting ready for my third season. In the past two years, I have competed in seven competitions and have done very well with four top three finishes including a first place finish and a trip to North American Strongman (NAS) Nationals in October 2013. Up until Nationals, I thought I was doing pretty good and was able to compete at a high level with other top Strongman. Well, that all changed at Nationals when I found out what strong really is!

As a coach I have heard every excuse in the book. I have heard every complaint, every bitch and every moan. I should have a PhD in clinical psychology from the thousands of hours of emotional counseling I’ve done. The one excuse I cannot condone, the one that makes my blood boil is when an athlete says something absurd like, “I forgot to eat lunch today.” You forgot to eat? You forgot? To EAT??!!!

Create Your Competitive Advantage

775651 4746063422554 1285015606 oCreate Your Competitive Advantage

By Loren Fogelman 

 

There’s a difference between the first place finisher and the rest of the competition. Truthfully, the gap in physical abilities between the first and last place finisher is relatively small. There is, however, one important, but frequently overlooked, training component which separates the leaders from all the rest.

Your training plan builds physical strength. That gets you physically prepared for the competition. On competition day, however, all the training is behind you. Grinding it out the last couple days before the event doesn’t work in your favor, and may even work against you.
