In this case, I’m super interested in how a lack of flexibility can affect your hands and wrists! Interestingly, the most I can point to is the concept of relative stiffness from Sahrmann, and regional interdependence in […]

One Weird Trick – Installment 11 – Long Term Hip Adaptations


One idea I’d like to identify with is that as strength coaches, and personal trainers, we have the ability to carry out movements that will deliver adaptations in a positive direction.

What Are You Doubling Down On?


What Are You Double Downing On? Gambling has never been my strong point. Whenever I go to a casino, I usually play it safe by hanging out with friends, watching them play craps, roulette, or going off on my own to the penny slots or quarter slots myself.

One Arm Push Up

Comparing a Powerlifting Bench Press and One-Arm Push Up
