Most individuals perform sledgehammer work improperly as they muscle the sledgehammer through the exercise rather than relying on the kinetic chain. Here are 10 key cues to master the sledgehammer.
Rapid Eccentric Isometrics (REI's) are similar to standard eccentric isometrics except that the negative phase is performed rapidly rather than slowly. There are multiple reasons why this enhances performance and strength.
Having worked with various figure, bodybuilding, and bikini competitors over the years I felt like it was time to write an article showcasing 20 of the most important tips you’ll need to implement if you want to maximize your physique.
Most lifters typically apply accommodating resistance (bands and chains) to the big three lifts such as squats, bench press, and deadlifts. However this technique is also incredibly effective when applied to the overhead press .
The foam roller is one of my favorite tools not necessarily for soft tissue work but for teaching proper lifting mechanics on a variety of movements particularly chest presses, pullovers, and chest fly variations. There are numerous benefits
To many lifters this may sounds like iron game heresy but there are actually 10 benefits for incorporating accommodating resistance in the form of reverse bands (band assistance) on Olympic lifts such as clean and snatch variations.
The head-off chest press has become one of my favorite protocols for improving horizontal pressing mechanics. It may look unusual however the benefits it provides to your bench press mechanics, shoulder health, and chest growth are significant.
When it comes to building massive pectorals it’s tough to beat the basics such as barbell presses, dumbbell presses, weighted pushups, dips and chest flyes. Unfortunately none of these variations fully maximize the functions of the pectoral muscle fibers. (Read More)
