This month’s exercise of the month is Landmind Squat Press. This exercise is a great total body strength exercise. I like using this exercise with my athletes for two reasons: Its easier to keep a neutral spine angle Its a great exercise for creating explosiveness Give it a try!

While some people fear change, others welcome it. When it comes to your training, conistency is good, but variation can be great. When a person first begins training, it’s true what they say, stick to the basics. That means if you want to learn how to squat, bench, deadlift, and overhead press, then that’s what...

Why CrossFit Kids I’ve been coaching kids for as long as I’ve been coaching adults. One of the focuses has always been teaching kids proper movement patterns that will translate when they get into upper grade level athletics and training. Another benefit to starting kids young is that it sets a precedence for them as...

The first Tuesday of every month the staff of NBS Fitness sit down in the “Upper Room” and learn something presented by a co-worker. This past continuing education session came from “Gunshow”. For me this little lesson came a little to late as she discussed, how she structures “cardio” for athletes focusing on (in order)...

The last time I trained weightlifting (ie olympic weightlifting) seriously was probably about 6 years ago. After leaving college I was fortunate enough to be on the strength staff at LSU where the head strength coach had a good relationship with Gayle Hatch who was the coach of the 2004 Men’s US Olympic Weightlifting Team. Over...

When I was younger, I managed a commercial gym.  During this time, I became very close and familiar with the members of that gym. As a result, I became a sounding board for frustrations for many of them.  So it wasn’t surprising when Pam* asked if she could come talk to me about some concerns...

All Weight Matters As many of you know, I set out for a hike on the Appalachian Trail recently. I made my list, my pack was packed, my shoes were tied and my course was set. We were dropped off by a shuttle and the plan was to hike north back to where our vehicle...

Much like a preacher about to give a sermon, I feel the need to tell you all something first: I am a sinner. Yep, that’s right, I am someone who has in the past bashed CrossFit and bashed the kipping pull up. The reason why I bashed the kipping pull up was the same reason...

Seriously. One easy trick allowed me to have the most productive year of training I’ve ever had. I am now in the best shape of my life, the leanest I have ever been, and the least injured I have ever been. And the greatest part is you can do it too! Whats the secret? I hired a knowledgable professional...

Life is funny, at least for me it has been. When CrossFit first came out I took the stance that most strength coaches took which was that CrossFit was an inferior training method consisting of random exercise done with poor technique at high intensity. In my defense, CrossFit was very rogue when they first came...

Yep, that’s exactly how I feel every time we do a GPP phase. For those who aren’t familiar with this, Gpp stands for general physical preparation. This is typically something we do when we have just finished competing in a competition. Our bodies are all beat up, and our joints are achy. This is the...

My mind is obsessed with powerlifting and every aspect that goes into it. This haunts me. It can take focus away from other areas. But it also allows me to correlate random things to explain powerlifting in a better way. I was sitting in church and we were talking about vineyards and the growth of...
