So What’s The Point Of Training Plyometrics?

So What’s The Point Of Training Plyometrics?

  1. Are you interested in learn more about what plyometrics are and how to use the training in your own workouts? 
  2. Do you need to understand a safe and effective approach to training plyometrics in your own workouts? 
  3. Are you aware of the benefits involved with plyometric training? 

First, I want to take a second to clear the air about training plyometrics. Lately I’ve seen plenty of keyboard warriors the internet being blowhards about how plyometrics are a waste of time and are senseless when it comes to incorporating them into your training.

No, such advice is absurd and is coming from someone that knows nothing about plyometrics. As a strength and conditioning coach that has trained hundreds and even thousands of athletes and serious fitness enthusiasts over a 17 year career I can tell you that plyometrics can be a huge asset to your fitness and overall training program if you understand how to apply them safely and effectively.

There’s no hiding from this movement. Sure plenty of folks try to cheat it with some sort of assist, but in order for you to pull your body up from a dead hanging position from the bar you need brute force strength…period.

Muscle Size Vs. Muscular Strength

Muscle Size vs. Muscular Strength

  1. Is there a difference between muscle size and muscular strength? 
  2. Does muscular size always equate to you being stronger? 
  3. Are you currently training for muscular size or muscular strength? 

Muscle Size vs. Muscular Strength…keep in mind that muscular size and strength don’t always correlate. The truth is that muscular size and muscular strength in any given individual can be determined by a number of different variables ranging from differences involving training protocols, genetics, diet, and experience with training.

4 Ways To Keep Crushing Strength Gains Beyond Your 30’s

Happy New Year!

Since this is the first day of the new year I figured I would share one more article from 2018 today when I went into the archives. The original publishing date of today’s article was back on July 3, 2018.

Whether you like it or not today is the day that many people start setting New Year’s Resolutions. Whether you do that or not I figured that today’s article may help guide you even if you decided it’s time for you to “tweak” your training looking at the new year. Read and apply!

  1. Are you continuing to win your war on strength beyond your 30’s? 
  2. Are you currently trying to lift and train the same now as you did in your 20’s? 
  3. Are you battling with ailments and injury more often? 
  4. Are you still trying to blast out record PR’s every 6 to 8 weeks in your 30’s? 

If you’re looking to keep crushing your strength gains for the long haul then you’ve got to change up your strength and conditioning approach as you ease into your 30’s, 40’s, and beyond. Sure you can still blast some new PR’s and blow up the heavy weight, but I would strongly recommend going about doing it intelligently and with an eye for experience.
