This workout is a KNEE DOMINANT leg day lift. The goal is to focus on taxing the quads. The bulk of this lift is only three exercises. Prepare to be amazed. Step one. Warm up. You can warm up however you like, or you can use this full body warm up from my Body Weight […]

I give you a hip dominant lower body workout in four main exercises. You already know. We keep it simple around here parts. We pay attention to tempo, and mind muscle connection, and use big compound lifts to get WERK done. Try this one out to see what my training philosophy feels like. Your glutes […]

Ankle mobility is a problem for A LOT of people. Most of my clients do not pass the ankle mobility assessment when starting out. You should be able to touch your knee to the wall while keeping your entire foot (heel) in the ground with your big toe 4.5 inches from the wall, one ankle […]

Your warm up is important and I’d argue an essential and under programmed aspect of training. There a million ways that one can warm up for a lift or other type of physical activity. The most important thing is that your warm up is relevant to the type of training you’re going to be doing […]

Train, eat well, and be joyful during the holidays. The holidays bring stress from social pressures, financial pressures, the feeling that you need to have accomplished something spectacular by the time the new year rolls around. It’s an event filled, alcohol consuming, schedule ruining, and sweets overloaded time of year. With all that said, the […]

Almost all of my clients have tight hip flexors and lazy glutes. In the American workforce and daily life there is A LOT of sitting in a stationary position – which equals inactive glutes and tight hips. Even if you lead a “healthy” lifestyle and lift the weights, the time you spend seated far outweighs […]

If you’re in this for the long haul, you know that you’ll have breaks in your training. You’ll get sick, injured, or life will be too much and you’ll fall off course a bit. It all happens. It’s naive to think it won’t. So how about being prepared for the breaks instead of discouraged by […]

What training accessories exist, what are they for, and do you really need them? Training accessories are kind of like supplements. You should not use them until you’ve mastered the basics and are already training well without them. And even then, you probably don’t need them…You can’t out supplement a shit diet, and you can’t […]

Does everyone need to squat? In short. No.  I am one of the biggest advocates for functional movements and squat is by far my favorite one. BUT, not everyone needs to squat. It is ideal to be able to squat. It is a natural human movement and large portions of the world, people spend most […]

I like big glutes and I cannot lie. But seriously. A round, well shaped backside is not only visually appealing but can be useful in decreasing back pain and increasing strength and power in other lifts like the squat and deadlift. Banded Glute Exericses High reps are my favorite for all of these as a […]
