Kickass Youth Training – The Dividing Line in Youth Athletic Success

Just the other day Curd and I were chatting about different levels of motivation of different people and all of a sudden realized that those who get it, I mean really get the “why” in training are those who have to work their asses off to get better.  You see it’s not the athletes that have an easy time with their journey in sports and athletic endeavors that really see the big picture when it comes to strength and conditioning. […]

Respect for Heavy Weights – Singles, Doubles and Triples

You know as a bodybuilder for most of my career I never had as much respect for the amount of quality work that powerlifters put in doing heavy singles, doubles and triples.  Well, all that has since changed immensely in performing my first powerlifting show.  Honestly, doing those heavy lifts wasn’t so much about the lifts themselves as I’m a huge fan of all the movements.  The bench, deadlift and squat are bread and butter exercises, but I found that[…]

Old Dog – Old tricks – Rebuilding my Deadlift

It seems like I have always been known primarily being a bencher. For the most part it’s true that’s what I focused the most and competed in for the last 20 plus years. To be honest my squat and my deadlift were much better than my bench when I started. But the love /hate relationship with bench press was all consuming. But after losing that 100 lbs or so I started to re-evaluate my training on many levels. One of[…]

Why Don’t We Exercise – Some Constraints About Exercise

The light and dark phases of the Earth slowly embrace you as you journey through you never ending sea of paperwork, pointless meetings, mindless internet searches and idle stretches of time glued to your television for some bleak release from reality.  The void between the days and nights seems ever so slowly dwindling away as you fade into the folds of your couch and you wonder, what am I missing?
