  • Strength In All Positions

    By Zach Even-Esh | In Training | on September 25, 2013

    Technique is King… or Queen, depending on who you’re talking to. The understanding of where your body needs to be to produce maximum force while reducing chances of injuries are critical.

    By Chad Smith | In Squat | on September 4, 2013

    The squat is the foundational movement to strength and athletic development. For powerlifters, strongmen, weightlifters and CrossFit athletes, success begins in the squat rack; and for athletes looking to sprint faster, jump higher and move more powerfully-great squat mechanics and the strong hamstrings, glutes, quads and hips it develops are critical.

  • Self Assessment and Constant Improvement

    By Blaine Sumner | In Powerlifting | on June 13, 2013

    In this strange world of Powerlifting, there are freaks who come out every year and set the sport on fire; then disappear as fast as they came in. A major reason many gifted lifters come and go so quickly is because the gains quit coming as easy. Some lifters can become world class in a […]

  • The Power of Words

  • 3 Reflections on the 2013 CrossFit Open

    By Ryan Brown | In Crossfit Training | on April 10, 2013

    First off, I want to make the disclaimer that my “reflections on the CrossFit Open” are as a coach and not as an athlete. I didn’t even do the workouts. I didn’t train for it and know damn good and well that I couldn’t have competed with the people that I would have expected myself […]

  • Turkish Get Up Like A Boss

    By Stacey Schaedler | In Crossfit Training, Mobility, Rehabilitation, Training | on April 3, 2013

    The Turkish Get Up is by far the most intricate of all the kettlebell lifts. Many will argue that it is the most complex lift around, seeing as it requires the entire body to work together in order to complete. It also happens to be my favorite. Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned […]

  • Russian KB Swing and Crossfit KB Swing

    By kris freeman | In Crossfit Training | on March 27, 2013

    I’ve been using kettlebells since 2004 when I discovered Dragondoor and Pavel, the “Evil Russian”.  I learned one way to swing a Kettlebell, how it was taught by Pavel on the Russian Kettlebell Challenge VHS tape. That was before young Freeman discovered Crossfit, and well before the American Swing was the Crossfit standard. Since then […]

    By Colin Burns | In Olympic Weightlifting | on February 5, 2013
