How To Dominate The Deadlift, 4 Dynamite Drills Using The Ultimate Sandbag

It was only about 15 years ago when the deadlift was vilified. If you coached your clients to perform the deadlift, you were almost considered an irresponsible trainer. Only the super hardcore, “crazy” lifters really did it!

An Interview with Angelo Grinceri, PCC Instructor

When I was almost seventeen, I started to get really involved in the aesthetic side of fitness through bodybuilding. I guess I had a different start than most practitioners. I feel like most fitness professionals have a competitive background based in athletic performance, while mine was looks-based.

The Science of Fitness: Power, Performance, and Endurance

“Diet and exercise” have been the mantra of preventative health for decades, perhaps to the point of becoming cliché and disregarded. This well-intentioned advice to eat better and exercise more is not nearly specific enough to be useful. Furthermore, we think people should know why such recommendations are given, in order to take the advice to heart and as motivation for putting the plan into action.​

Why Do I Train? Why Do I Want To Be Strong?

Why do you like to train? What is your goal? Certainly most (younger) males train to look cool and to be attractive to women. Over time, that may change—at least it did for me, training became a way of life. It was fun to explore how far I could push the limits by doing more reps, or increasing the weights. I was sweating "just" to write higher numbers in my training notebook.

Is Weight All The Same?

It might be the MOST annoying saying in all of fitness. I have even heard some of the smartest and most accomplished strength coaches fall prey to it: “Weight is just weight, the body doesn’t know the difference.” At first glance, it makes a lot of sense! It reminds me of an old joke, “What weighs more, 1000 pounds of feathers or 1000 pounds of rocks?” Does science and the real world tell us anything otherwise?

An Interview with Keith Veri, RKC Instructor

When I first started with kettlebells, I was tired of how I had been training. Even though I was into running and a lot of cardiovascular training which helped me get down to 150lbs, I was not happy there. I didn’t like being skinny, and I needed to add a strength training component. Then all the sudden I saw them one day and ordered a 30lb kettlebell. It was rough, but I loved working with it. ​

Can I See It In Your Eyes?

The historic wrestling room at Lehigh University was awe inspiring, training was held in that room dating back to the 1930s. But this year would be the last time the wrestlers would train in that room. While the guys were still walking in and getting ready for my training, and I gave them a few minutes to lace up their shoes. I was drawn to the walls of the wrestling room, which was surrounded by countless black and white photos spanning the entire room from wall to wall.

How A Little-Known Forefather of Functional Training Inspired Me to Recreate Myself Athletically—And Invent The Ultimate Sandbag

Very specific things seem to happen for very specific reasons, but are completely inexplicable. Sometimes you are just in the right place at the right time. The other day I found myself at the doctor’s office for a check up on the hardware in my neck. While I was waiting, I daydreamed about meeting the man who in many ways was the inspiration that shaped my last decade, and led to my moniker as the “Sandbag Guy”.
