Hi Fitness Peeps!
I have several things to share with you today.
1. Fitcast Interview with Yours Truly
Kevin Larabee from the Fitcast recently interviewed me. We discussed best rep ranges for hypertrophy, explosive training, training women, hip thrust regressions and progressions, knee dominant versus hip dominant ratios in programming, and more. Click HERE to listen to it – it’s around an hour long.
2. Muscle Activity During the Bench Press
Chris Beardsley wrote an awesome review of the bench press EMG literature HERE. If benching is your thing, then give this article a read.
3. A Day in the Life of Rich Froning
In my recent Crossfit podcast, I mentioned this Youtube video. The link had been taken down, but one of our listeners found a new link. This is a very intriguing video – you gotta respect Rich after watching this! If I were you I’d watch it over the next week as I suspect the link will be taken down eventually.
4. First Powerlifting Competition on Sunday!
Wish me luck – my comp is in three more days.
My goal several months ago was a 400 lb squat, 300 lb bench, 600 lb deadlift, and 1,300 total (and a 140 lb strict curl). To be honest, I don’t know what to expect. My squat, bench, and curl has been consistent, but my deadlift has been wacky – couldn’t budge 565 lbs last week. I need a miracle – hopefully my taper is fruitful.
I’ll keep y’all posted!
