Stuff I have Learned, Part One

Keep your wrist straight when curling

Drive with your feet when benching

If you wait until you feel perfect to train you never will

Dont feel guilty about short sessions

Bent over rows make you thick

A controlled descent makes you bigger

Volume makes you stronger

Pressing is underrated

Close grip is better than wide grip

Beef makes you strong

Cardio is essential

You dont need as much food as you think

Db's trump barbells for development(except for legs)

Push through your heels when pressing

Squeeze your glutes when pressing

Get mad at it

You really arent that hungry

Dont get too heavy with bad weight

Stick to it and you will be strong

Look at the teacher's credentials

Get strong first

Foam rolling and stretching may make it worse

Train everyday

Laugh, shake your head and move on

Women make better training partners

Train fast on assistance work

Everyone can be strong, but not everyone has the mind to be strong

After awhile, one should learn on their own

Train for something

Squat and leave

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
