Shoulder health is something every golfer needs, but something every golfer neglects. Shoulder cars are a great exercise to help target those unloved shoulders we all have. It is important that you keep a neutral and tight core throughout the range of motion. Going into extension or “losing” your core will allow for false ranges...

I would say that I am still pretty new to the sport of powerlifting. I’ve been doing it for almost 3 years now, but I feel like there are many lessons that can be learned in 3 years.  I would like to share a couple of them with all of you in hopes that my...

I am not a runner but for the third year in a row I am running the St. Jude Half Marathon. Since I am not a runner, why would I do that you might ask?! I ask myself that as well…. I could say, I do it for the kids (and while I absolutely believe...

Headaches are one of the most difficult and common ailments that affect people world-wide.

I normally incorporate this exercise into most of my clients’ programs, due to the many ways this exercise can be performed.This exercise is excellent for building upper body strength, while training rotation and anti-rotation. It’s important that the lifter keep a neutral posture...

The most frequently asked question asked of me is, “What exercises do you recommend for back pain/problems?” There is no one answer to that question. Why is that? It is primarily due to the fact I like to screen the client to see where the pain is actual coming from or what is actually causing...

  I suppose there’s no point in me telling you this is another one of my favorites. It’s pretty much safe to say that anything that I’m putting out on this is one of my favorites. I’ve been a metal head for well over a decade now, but it wasn’t until I went to NBS...

I have been hosting or helping at iron sport events in some capacity for better part of the last decade.  While many have had memorable moments, the Clash For Cash on Beale is quickly becoming the only event that I think about making better intermittently year round.  I was recently asked by my buddy Josh...

I recently got a chance to try out something I’ve been wanting to try for some time now: a deprivation tank. For those not in the know, a deprivation (or float) tank is a self contained pod that has about a foot of super concentrated salt water. The high salt concentration makes you incredibly buoyant,...

This year has brought with it a lot of change for myself, particularly in the realm of the type of exercise I choose to do. Up until recently my training consisted primarily of weight training, either for strength and/or size. Earlier this year I started CrossFit at which point my training shifted to more of...

***Warning*** this may leave you a little butt hurt. I am not your cheerleader or your personal motivator. Matter of fact, I don’t even like the word ‘motivation’. Motivation is temporary and it’s an excuse you give yourself to not workout or train regularly. It’s something you tell yourself when you’re just plain being lazy....

Yes, it is indeed time for another Riff of the Week. This one is a bit more on the classic side then most of the previously released riffs. This is a tune that I have enjoyed ever since the first time I’ve heard it and it’s never gotten old no matter how many times I...

This time last year I was weighing in right at 280 lbs. Fast forward to present day and I’m hovering around 220. That 60 lbs of weight loss has come from a number of different factors. I got off testosterone supplementation, started doing CrossFit, started running, and went through many dietary changes. In this article...

Either way, when we implement what we have learned (often through failing), we identify certain variables as the cause of the failure and change those variables. Then we see...

Supplements can be confusing.  Many are absolutely worth the time and effort, while others are clever marketing ploys that don’t really make much, if any, difference on your performance.   Further, of the ones that are worth while, the truth is that *situationally* they aren’t appropriate.  So how do you know what to take and when? ...

I have been working with Justin Harris for almost a year now, and having him to keep me on track this offseason has a been huge.  When we started I was 198lbs and now I am 20lbs heavier, and I’m the leanest I have ever been at this weight and easily eating the most food...
