"Many of you know how important sleep is. You can feel the effects that little sleep can have, like grogginess, lack of energy and poor reasoning abilities. Getting little or poor sleep can also contribute to a higher body composition and can put up a nasty fight with you when trying to lose weight. But do you know why?" 

Make sure you read the rest of the article HERE about Sleep and Body Composition.

"I hate mobility work. When I get to the gym, I want to lift, not roll around on a bunch of over priced dog toys for 30 minutes. I don’t read books about it or pore over videos of people strapping themselves up with rubber bands. The thought of lying on top of what looks likes a $50 sea anemone is something that just doesn’t interest me."

Check out Mike Gray's article 'Mobility for People Who Hate Mobility.'

Different Types of Barbells

Wednesday, 15 October 2014 08:25

Barbells. Yesterday I was asked about the difference between certain barbells in the gym as I was caught 'spinning' the sleeve before my Snatches. Most of you should know by now that I am passionate about Weightlifting which as a result has made me a big dork about Barbells. There are lots of different types of bars out there, some that are very poor quality that you might see at a commercial facility, and some that are worth more than my life, and are used for a very specific application. Rogue fitness made a video showing and explaining the different types of bars from the knurling, to the steel, to the length and diameter, and to the application of the Barbell. It's definitely worth the few minutes of your morning to educate yourself on the topic, since we use them every day. 

Barbells 101

A. Take 15-20 minutes to establish a max of:

1 Halting Clean DL + 1 Hang Clean + 1 Jerk

Rest As Needed between sets.

**Establish A Max.**

Now overcoming injury is another tool that you can now add to that list.In life, we are the sum of all our injuries: physical, mental, emotional, everything. How we handle all of them.
