Do You Approach Strength As A Skill?

Do You Approach Strength As A Skill?

  1. When you walk into the gym do you walk in prepared? 
  2. When it comes to your pursuit of fitness do you recognize your needs? 
  3. Are you results oriented when it comes to your training? 

Do you approach and treat your pursuit of strength as a skill? If there is one pet peeve of mine it’s the ability of people to walk through most every endeavor in their life without purpose, or intent. If you want results in life you MUST be intentional with your approach. You must go on the attack with a laser beam focus.

How Muscular Size Can Hurt Your Performance

How Muscular Size Can Hurt Your Performance

Having muscular size can have a lot of advantages, but there are some scenarios in which having a lot of muscular size can be a disadvantage and may even get in your way in terms of performance.

Some of these disadvantages can involve minor inconveniences such as having a tough time fitting yourself for clothes, getting in and out of small vehicles, and depriving yourself of a comfortable plane ride should you book a ticket for a long flight.

However, there are other scenarios where having muscular size can get in your way from a functional standpoint if you’re trying to compete and thrive in other sport and work environments in order to perform.

3 Ways To Construct An Athletic Functional Body For Optimal Fitness

3 Ways To Construct An Athletic Functional Body For Optimal Fitness

So today I wanted to revisit this older topic today by pulling it straight from the archives. The original publishing date for this piece was all the way back in July 8th, 2009!!! Yes, this one is old school, but the information is certainly useful. I thought you would find this list helpful in your journey if you’re looking to build an athletically functional body.

  1. Are you interested in learning how to develop an athletic functional body? 
  2. Are you training your body in a way to be optimally functional for any sport or life situation? 
  3. Are you curious as to how you can improve your training to help you move with greater control and confidence? 
  4. Are you training your body to be able to last over the long haul? 

The pursuit of an athletic functional body is a solid plan. I had a friend the other day that was just starting back into working out and he was asking me “what is the best thing for me to do to get back into shape?” I proceeded to tell him that he needs to start training like an athlete again. Why, he asked? I followed up by asking him at what point in his life was he in the greatest shape to which he replied “when I was doing preseason workouts for football in college.” I rest my case.

Improving your deadlift technique is no doubt one of the biggest go-tos for lifting when trying to develop strength. If you’re trying to optimize your efforts in building total body strength you go to the deadlift. If you’re wanting to build a back that won’t break you go to the deadlift, If you want to build a level of human function that will keep you in the game for the long haul then you go to the deadlift. However, there are some technical aspects of the deadlift that you may be missing. The deadlift does require some technical know how.
