    By Juggernaut | In Powerlifting, Training | on June 21, 2013

    By Chad Smith | In Sports Training | on April 25, 2013

  • A New Approach to Paused Benching

    By Brandon Lilly | In Bench | on January 10, 2013

    By Pete Rubish | In Deadlift | on January 10, 2013

    1) Train Your Hamstrings Hard-Start incorporating glute-ham raises with a band around your neck into your training program.  I simply set this up by hooking the band under the GHR machine and then putting the other end of the band around my neck.  This movement produces tremendous tension as you approach the top and will […]
