This past Saturday I traveled up to Wixom, Michigan to attend the Football Strong Clinic Ron McKeefery and Jim Kielbaso put on. It was a fantastic clinic with some good speakers that were willing to not only talk in-depth about their programs but stay after and “talk shop” with the attendees. In this post, I’ll give an outline of some of the takeaway messages I got from each presentation. Continue With The Awesomeness...

For several decades now, coaches and athletes have known that one way to get better at your sport is to become stronger, faster, and more powerful. This is great news for those of us in the strength and conditioning industry as it validates the need for teams to have a strength and conditioning or sports performance coach, whichever you want to call it. What ends up coming out of this is the thought that each sport team may have a certain way of training that is different than other sports. It’s the thought that we need sport specific training. So the question arises:
Is sport specific training a myth?
The answer to this question isn’t exactly black and white. On one hand, ALL ATHLETES need to get stronger and faster. It doesn’t matter what sport they play. On the other hand, there may be some exercises that are dangerous and contraindicated for certain sports. Continue With The Awesomeness...

My squats still aren’t back to where they were before I started having the elbow issue but they are coming around. Deadlift and press are going great. I think I’ll do another week of training 3′s before I start tapering down.
People are often surprised when I talk to them about my philosophy on training for fat loss. When a client comes in with fat loss goals, the first thing we do is teach them to squat, hinge, carry, press, and be strong in a single leg stance. It’s a strength training program.
When people come in with a sports performance or bodybuilding-type goal, we teach them to squat, hinge, carry, press, and be strong in a single leg stance. It’s a strength training program.
Sound redudant?…because it is.
The fact is, the more relative strength a person has, the easier it is to accomplish all the other goals, whether they’re fat loss or they want to look better on stage. By relative strength, I mean the more strength a person has in relation to his or her bodyweight. Continue With The Awesomeness...
Let’s get a couple of definitions out-of-the-way first.
Muscle Tone: Muscle tone is the amount of tension a muscle has on it. It has nothing to do with the appearance of the muscle or leanness of the person. Most people confuse this with someone being lean.
Hypertrophy: Hypertrophy is an increase in cell size. Basically, it’s an increase in muscle size (or fat cell size for some of you). This is important for both fat loss and strength gains as more muscle mass has a higher metabolism and can move bigger weights.
