Four Day Powerlifting Workout Program

Just wrote this. Its a base powerlifting workout routine. After a few months, adjust the assistance work to target whatever helps you. For example, switch out paused squats for good mornings.

Nothing fancy, just try to add weight each week when you hit the desired rep range. The majority of people can use something like this there entire lifting careers and really never need anything else. Hopefully this helps somebody.

The Box Squat: Adding A Tool To The Toolbox

Today, I want to talk about the squat and more specifically I want to talk about the box squat.

I want to give you a few tutorial videos, tips and tricks to perfect your squat, and to add some serious poundage to your stand-up ability (squat).

Because, really, the ability to perform a squat with good form is a foundational element to becoming a better human. 

I don’t care if you are trying to stand up 700 lb or getting off the toilet; you need to know how to squat to stay healthy and mobile. 

But before we get started I wanted to throw some AWESOME squat quotes at you from some great minds in strength and conditioning.

Copy of WHY
Copy of WHY (1)
Copy of WHY (3)

Mr. Rippetoe, Mr. Simmons and Mr. Glassman pretty much say it all right there…But here’s my take on their quotes:

  1. Don’t cheat the squat, just squat! It does everything!
  2. Focus less on your equipment, tools, and gear and more on your form and technique.
  3. Learn to squat! It will fix more for your fitness and give you more opportunities as an athlete if you can squat properly.

Now, before we can talk about the box squat we have to talk about the standard squat.

First: Get Your Squat Right

The squat is the most complicated, simplest, and most important lift there is. It’s complicated in the fact that there is a lot going on in a squat, and if you are doing it incorrectly you can injure yourself quite easily. It’s simple in the fact that you are just putting weight on your back, squatting, and standing back up. Take your time when it comes to the squat. Learn how to do it and learn how to do it perfectly

Squat Cues

  • BACK TIGHT – It’s easy to forget to keep your back tight. After you get a firm grip on the bar it is time to start thinking about your back. You are going to put yourself under the bar with a tight back. Shoulder blades pinched together. Keep the lower back tight in preparation for the lift.
  • DOWN – Sounds obvious, you have to go down to do a squat. But you need to THINK about the down. Think about keeping your weight on your heels. There is a huge difference between starting the down on the balls of your feet or on your starting it on your heels. You will be driving through the heels and the hips, so make sure you know where your “down” is going. Correcting for a center of gravity shift can be difficult.
  • OUT – This is the most important one!! It has multiple meanings. The first out is your butt. Your butt should be the first thing to kick out when you start to squat. A very basic principle that some people can overlook. The second out is overlooked by most: you need to think of the squat as a down and out motion. As you go down your legs should spread outward. Not performing the “outs” properly can cause the knee to go ever so slightly past the toe, and now we are getting to hurt knee syndrome.
  • UP – This is just as simple as the down. You are thinking about the up. Are you driving with your heels? No, are you really driving with your heels!? Are you driving your elbows forward and hips forward? Explode out of the bottom of your squat. These are some simple coaching cues that will keep you on your toes, I mean heels 😉 Your entire body should be tight during a squat; be vigilant!

Quick Squat Science

The below was pulled from different independent studies involving the barbell back squat I’ve read through all of the studies and pulled out the “what you need to know” So grab your checklist and keep these points in mind AND SQUAT SOMETHING HEAVY!

  • You should squat heavy and get to full depth for best results.
  • Knee angle is tricky! Don’t go TOO far past the toe with your knees, but also, don’t overly restrict your movement as that will increase your forward lean. Everyone is different in limb length, so find your sweet spot.
  • Barbell back squat is 43% more effective than a smith machine in developing strength.
  • High rep, or high volume, back squats (55+ reps in a workout) can lead to significant form breakdown and injury.

Alright, got your squat down?

Let’s move to the box squat.

The Box Squat

The video above is a 3 min video tutorial on the box squat from the End of Three Fitness Training Program ACCELERATE.

It’s quick and will give you the basics of the box squat.

So…why box squat?

  • The box squat is a great squatting variation to add to your weekly routine.
  • You do not get as sore from a box squat workout, and you can recover much faster.
  • The box squat, when set properly, will make sure you hit the right depth EVERY SINGLE REP.
  • Box squats can increase flexibility
  • When done correctly, the box squat is a very safe way to squat.
  • Great for beginner to learn (unloaded – no weight) how to squat properly.
  • Great for intermediate to advanced lifters to add variation and serious pounds to their squat.
  • Great if you have battled knee injuries or lower back injuries.

Box Squat Quick Tips:

  • Always push the feet out to the sides, not directly down. Act as if you are trying to roll your shoe over.
  • Maintain a neutral spine.
  • Keep your heels down.
  • Have your knees out over feet.
  • Maintain a vertical shin, or near vertical shin.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the box squat!

Fundamental Strength: Simple Doesn’t Mean Easy

Because I train and run an online business I’m frequently witnessing people do things that get my attention when it comes to training. For starters much of the search algorithms that Facebook and YouTube use regularly cause fitness related posts to flow into my newsfeed. Many of these posts are great consisting of colleagues and friends that I have tons of respect for in the industry. However even though there are good ones I also find myself getting a lot of craziness in my newsfeed at the same time.

The Cute Factor…

Perception is defined as a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something. It’s a sort of mental impression. Perception is not always reality, but for many people it certainly can be. Everyone is different in how they go about perceiving the world, but in my experience many people can be easily swayed when it comes to perception.

Granted some are better at digging and understanding what reality is than others. As a matter of fact I would even go so far as to say that a few are better at digging and understanding reality more than the rest of the majority. Nevertheless people can be easily influenced by what shows up on the world wide webs and as a result this can quickly cause them to try and apply some unreasonable tactics when it comes to their training.

The point is that your training doesn’t have to resemble some kind of circus act. For whatever reason I think many people have the tendency to view some video on the YouTubes with a professional athlete pulling off some amazing feat of strength, or some really incredible athletic move and they think they automatically should start trying to mimic that in their own training.

The danger in this is that those that don’t know what they’re doing tend to want to get “cute” with what they “are” doing in the weight room. Many of these folks also tend to jump into getting “cute” with their exercise selection without fully understanding the purpose, or intent of what they are doing. A lot of the time this ends up being a recipe for disaster.

It Doesn’t Take Much…

The key to progressing in anything in life is about consistency. You must be fundamentally sound in your approach before ever worrying about getting too deep into anything. Being sound fundamentally is a necessary requirement before you can even worry about implementing anything that is seen as advanced.

The good news is that it doesn’t take much to hone a skill. People overcomplicate life all the time. When it comes to training many people look at that super athlete on a YouTube video pull off some amazing feat and then immediately want to include themselves into that same category by trying to do all kinds of crazy shit in their training.

Once again the key is learning to scale properly. A sound progression should involve moving to vary a movement only after a particular movement has been mastered. For instance, it wouldn’t make sense to do a one arm push up before at least mastering the standard double arm push up, right?

You’re probably thinking well coach that’s obvious! Well, you would be correct that such a statement is obvious to you and me, but to many folks that graduate from YouTube University this isn’t so obvious. To clarify my point you can find videos everywhere of people attempting sloppy one arm push ups which aren’t true one arm push ups!

You can also witness people doing sloppy two arm push ups all the time, but many of these people claim they can do a push up. You see as I stated earlier perception isn’t always reality!

The Takeaway

Just understand that the final product in any situation didn’t just magically appear overnight. The work that goes into honing a skill requires consistent progressive effort. Such a journey in any endeavor requires an individual to be smart, persistent, and unrelenting.

In terms of your training make sure you that you are fundamentally sound and that you understand how to progress in an intelligent manner. Just because covering the basics for fundamental strength may look simple it doesn’t mean it’s easy. I know this because so many fail to actually do it. If it were easy then everyone would be doing it!

I know, you’re busy. I’m busy, too. Everyone is. Busy, stressed and tired.

For most, their exercise routine is just another cause of stress- one more thing you have to fit into your schedule, one more thing fighting for your time, one more thing you are too exhausted to do, and one more thing that makes you feel guilty when you push it off in favor of some downtime.

These would all seem like good excuses to skip exercise, if any of them were true. Poor exercise, it gets such a bad rap. If this sounds like you, you need to switch your thinking. Exercise is your CURE for stress. A good workout stimulates your beta-endorphins (which are 30 times more powerful than morphine) giving you more energy and helps you burn off that extra tension and anxiety- the perfect mix to nix stress.

The best workouts for eliminating stress?

Boxing. Sure, you get to beat the crap out of something, but you also get a great cardio, upper body and core workout. Punch away.

Aerobic Exercise. Working in repetitive motion, clearing your mind while pushing your body as hard as it will go is better for lowering stress than any prescription out there.

Sports. Playing basketball or volleyball with a few friends is not only a great workout, it’s a great stress reliever. Fresh air, blasting fat and fun with friends- it doesn’t get much better than that.

Yoga. For a slower, calming (yet, still effective) mind clearing workout, give your body and mind a good stretch with a long yoga session.

Don’t stress about stress- use it to your advantage. Use your anxiety and pent up energy to push yourself further than you thought you ever could, and end up feeling better than ever afterward.

How To Trim The Fat Off Of Your Warm Up Routine

Do you warm up before your training sessions? By now, the answer is probably yes since the industry has force-fed you the idea of the dynamic warm up being the most pivotal aspect of fitness. But the better question is, how is your warm up helping you move closer to your goals, and is it producing optimal results?

Although the dynamic warm up has become more mainstream over the past decade, there are still many questions when it comes to programming. It’s easy to place too great of an emphasis on soft-tissue work, activation drills, and corrective exercises that can be an endless rabbit hole.

If you find yourself spending more time warming up than actually training, listen up. I call this majoring in the minors – and it’s is a perfect way to attain sub-par results, even if you are seemingly spending your time and energy training.

Simplifying your pre-workout routine will exponentiate your results and save you a hell of a lot of time in the process. Time to strategically trim the fat off your long and tedious warm up routine with surgical precision.

The Dynamic Turning Point

As a sports performance physical therapist who specializes in body composition and orthopedic health, I’ve seen some amazing things from physio-esque warm ups and programming. But if you are moving well with no glaring dysfunctions or pain, is there really a need for all the fluffy programming on top of a traditional strength and conditioning program? I used to think so, but here’s what changed my viewpoint.

My own pre-training routine was getting a little out of hand about a year ago. I have expertise in this niche in the industry, so it just made sense to use what I knew to program my own dynamic warm up and activation routine before every big lifting day in my programming. I was spending nearly 25 minutes warming up before every session, and an additional ten minutes in an active cool-down at the tail end of my training days.

For someone who makes a living programming training and regeneration strategies for clients all over the world including Olympians and MLB All-Stars, I’d let my curiosity get the best of me in my own programming, tacking on a half hour to every single training day. At the end of the week, I was spending an additional four hours warming up and cooling down. But what was I getting out of that time?

For someone with no notable previous history of injuries, no major dysfunctions, and great requisite movement capacity, it had just become absurd, and I was in need for a big turn around. Was that four hours a week enhancing my body, or had it just become a ritual with no underlying purpose or progression? Time is one of the most precious commodities in the world, and aimlessly pissing it away is unforgivable. But how do you determine what is working and what is wasting time in terms of exercises in a dynamic warm up? Not so simple, is it?

“It was time to do what every coach and therapist passionately preaches not to do – to ditch the dynamic warm up altogether, and determine my own functional and performance baseline.”

I decided to go back to my scientific roots and set a baseline for myself. Any time you carry out an experiment, it is of the utmost importance to determine a control group for your studies to compare to the variable that is being manipulated. In this case, the control was the dynamic warm up and its many components.

It was time to do what every coach and therapist passionately preaches not to do – to ditch the dynamic warm up altogether, and determine my own functional and performance baseline.

The Results of No Warm Up

After bringing my warm up and cool down time back to zero, what transpired with my own body and the results from my hard earned sweat dollars training every day was amazing.  After four weeks of walking through the doors of the gym and starting right in on my strength program with nothing more than a few steps of “warm up” from the door to the power rack, my mobility, body composition, and general feeling of recovery and freshness had never been better.

How the hell could this possibly be? Was the decade I spent in academia mastering movement strategies for correction and optimization a waste of time and tuition dollars? Not quite.

Creating Perfect Movements

It’s important to reiterate that I do not have any glaring physical issues that need increased focus and reinforcement. I was moving pretty well before I hit the warm up rock bottom. This opened up my eyes to something fellow Breaking Muscle coach and a great friend of mine, Charles Staley, had been saying for years, “Maybe all you need is lifting.”

I also knew I was not going to do any soft tissue work, activation drills, or mobility movements before or after my training session. If you know for a fact that the only physical activity you have every day is strength and conditioning work, you will make damn sure that your range of motions, tempos, strategic positioning, and overall synergistic feel of movements are as close to perfect as possible.

“Want to kick your own ass and justify any movement? Then do something new and novel, and compare it to what you’ve been doing.”

Executing your current programming to the apex of your abilities will do amazing things to your results. It’s easy to lose just enough focus on every set to limit your gains and transferrable functional carry over. I made it a game for myself every single rep, asking myself, “How perfectly can I execute this movement?” And to say that mindset worked would be a huge understatement.

Train Less to Gain Muscle and Lose Fat?

This approach allowed me to mentally and physically push to a higher intensity set to set.  I was going into my most important lifts absolutely fresh, and was able to push balls-to-the-wall repeatedly with little neural or mechanical fatigue that I was causing myself with my prolonged warm up routines.

I was asked on the Breaking Muscle Radio podcast what was my major training goal, and my answer was simple, “To push myself every single set to the brink of my physical limits and not let my mind deter me from my ultimate performances.” I stand by that, and it becomes increasingly important when you are trimming the fat off any program.

Once a lifter or athlete gets out of the novice stage of training and into the intermediate and advanced stages, a major plateau breaker is found in the mind-muscle connection and the ability to push loads, reps, and sets to the brink of absolute physical failure. That sounds pretty intense, I know. But pushing yourself as close to your physical limits as possible is what will produce physical adaptations in a more efficient manner.

Can You Limit Your Aches by Not Warming Up?

Before you all jump onto my Facebook page to write me some nasty notes pertaining to my blasphemous claims, give this idea a fair shake. By dropping down to my baseline of warm up and cool down in my own personal training, I felt better from a joint, soft tissue, and neurological fatigue standpoint. This may go against everything you thought you knew and love to teach and program yourself, but I am reporting my own self-case study here.

Many warm up routines are done at such high frequencies that the once novel techniques and movements have a decline in execution over time. After any movement strategy is somewhat mastered, there is no progression or way to overload these sequences.

Many people hit autopilot and just go through the motions. This is when a warm up routine can become dangerously close to a movement ritual. But as I discussed above, you need to set a control group and baseline to compare and contrast what is actually producing results.

Corrective movements, soft tissue work, and activation drills are highly dependent on internal tensions, synergistic stabilization, and activation patterns. They also require a high amount of focus and mental acuity to continue to produce the desired result. If you run every day, your body will get more efficient and thus reduce the caloric expenditure and benefit of cardiorespiratory health and capacity. The same can be said for warm up drills. As you do more of the same drill, your body adapts to that drill. Without an increase in internal execution factors, your body becomes less adaptive to the same moves over time.

This is the same reason any new exercise is always perceived to be harder from your sympathetic nervous system response. Want to kick your own ass and justify any movement?Then do something new and novel, and compare it to what you’ve been doing.

3 Worthwhile Warm Up Progressions

Over those four weeks, I identified many aspects of my body and programming that were not clear to be before finding my baseline. And after that period, it was time to strategically place just one or two movements into my pre-workout warm up routine to get the best bang for my buck and justify the time spent on these movements.

I now have six months under my bare minimum warm up training belt, and I’ve determined these dynamic warm up exercises work for split routines with push, pull, and lower body emphasis. These are the exact warm up drills I use before my big training sessions, and I highly encourage you to give them a try – after you set your own physical baseline, of course!

Cheat Weekends Are The Best Weekends

I hate diet food.

I despise raw Kale. I think it’s gross.

If you were to ask me if I would like broccoli or a sweet potato bathed in butter with brown sugar covering it like a blanket, you better believe I’ll be going for the sweet potato.

And you know what? I’ll proudly say, “I’m eating a veggie you bastards”.

Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t eat crap all the time. If I did, I wouldn’t have been able to do this:

But the truth is… I LOVE to eat. I’ve been known to eat a stack of 8 pancakes drenched in syrup without blinking.

I can put down a pint of ice cream in under 10 minutes while watching an episode of The Walking Dead. The walkers are eating humans. I’m eating Ben & Jerry.

So you might be wondering how I can do this and lose (more importantly, KEEP OFF) 115 pounds of fat and 10 inches in my waist.

In a nutshell, I refuse to succumb to “Decision Fatigue”.

Decision Fatigue hits all of us. It’s evil.

Ever hit a brain fog or an energy slump? Yeah. That can easily be Decision Fatigue.

This phrase was coined by social psychologist Roy F. Baumeister and “DF” shows that there is a limit of mental energy for using self-control.

When you fight temptation for a long period of time, you’re less able to resist other temptations like yelling at people in traffic or wanting to beat the crap out of the office printer in frustration.

You see, people like you and I spend anywhere between 3-4 hours a day resisting desire and this willpower drastically DECREASES (up to 60%!) as the day goes on.

Now imagine how your willpower is affected over the course of a brutal week.

Have you ever started a diet on a Monday and absolutely crushed it? Then Tuesday, you lost a little enthusiasm, but you hang in there.

Finally, a few days go by and Friday is here. You find it draining to say “No thank you”.

You just ended a long stressful week. The last thing you want to do on a Friday night is eat a dry chicken breast and some green beans…. all while saying “no thank you” to your work friends to a night out.

Well, I have good news. There’s a loophole with willpower.

A study from the University of Minnesota shows that rewarding yourself after you’ve followed through a healthy behavior will increase long term willpower.

In fact, it was quoted…

“It might be an even better approach idea to reward ourselves first, and use the mood to boost follow-through”.

Now for me, one lousy cheat meal isn’t enough. It’s like 15 minutes of glory and 10,065 minutes of misery eating “diet” food.

No thanks.

Give me the ENTIRE weekend of “fun” food like piping hot pizza Friday night, a stack of gluten-packed pancakes Saturday for lunch (because pancakes at lunch rocks), and a ridiculously sized slice of cheesecake Saturday night. Let me end the weekend with a fat, juicy burger while I watch NFL football on Sunday.

“Dude, is that even possible?”

You bet it is, thanks to the breakthrough study I fell in love with from Cornell University.

Scientists looked at weight loss among men and women of a variety of ages. Participants were asked to weigh themselves after waking up over a period of 15 to 330 days in order to include weight fluctuation patterns and corresponding days of the week

The researchers observed that the individuals, who lost more weight over the period of the study, “splurged” over the weekend, yet cut calories Monday through Thursday.

“Weight variations between weekdays and weekends should be considered normal instead of weight gain.”, Cornell University Brian Wansink said. “The big difference between those who gain weight over time and those who lose or maintain weight is directly related to the way they eat from Monday to Friday.”

Pretty cool, right?

So how do you do it?

Well, look at your diet like intervals. Monday through Thursday is your “interval” where you would focus and tighten up your diet a little more than usual. You can even do some simple carb cycling to make it work even faster.

Then Friday, Saturday and Sunday you cut loose. Release the hounds. Let the dogs come out and play. You get the picture.

Now you probably already know that simply cutting calories Monday through Thursday is definitely a good start, but it’s more than that.

Imagine cutting your calories by 500 per day, but having 3 bowls of Frosted Flakes as your meals. That’s not a good plan, right? And I don’t know about you, but cereal makes me hungrier.

And not to mention… it can cause major inflammation in your joints, creating unnecessary pain.

How Balanced Is Your Training With Your Accessory Exercises?

From being in the strength and fitness business now for over 14 years one thing that seems to amaze me is the imbalance of accessory work that is used in many people’s training programs. In much of my experience there seems to be many people that will train with quite a bit of imbalance in terms of how their workouts are structured.

Accessory Exercises

Accessory exercises are meant to be those drills that we work on after performing the bigger primary lifts within our training program. For instance, you may train the bench press and incline dumbbell presses as your bigger primary lifts on your more upper body training days and from there you may eventually trickle down to working on lateral raises and bicep curls. The latter would qualify as accessory work.

Now for today’s post I’m going to be addressing how to balance accessory work and what type of accessory work would be best for certain goals included within your training. Buckle your chinstrap my friend and get ready to go to work!

Over the years I’ve noticed two very opposing extremes that many folks tend to fall victim to when training out of balance within the structure of their workouts. For instance, they may include big primary lifts such as bench, squat, and deadlift into their training and then it just simply ends right then and there! Yep, that’s it…they’re done with their training for the day.

In this example these people are cutting themselves short in their training by not performing any other movements to help their performance, or to supplement their strength gains in ways that they just aren’t going to get by limiting themselves solely to the bigger primary lifts.

On the flip side I’ve also seen many people go into a gym and include nothing but accessory exercises, and neglect to attack any big primary movements for the sake of building true strength and lean muscle. These people tend to lack a foundation in their strength and performance development, and do not tend to possess any real satisfactory level of functional capacity for the purposes of just moving and picking shit up.

The problem is simple. The solution is simple. It’s all about balance. As you train you should work to develop a strong foundation first by attacking the big primary lifts. Next, you should include a secondary level of movement that should include a healthy amount of accessory work. These movements should supplement your lifting and help you to build on mastering your body’s movement abilities.

Accessory exercises can include a whole bunch of stuff depending on what your goals are for the day’s training. As a general rule of thumb I’m a big proponent of including single limb training (unilateral training) into the equation.

For instance, if we are having a big squat day then I may supplement that primary movement with lunges, step ups, or single leg deadlifts. As a matter of fact I’m a huge fan of single leg deadlifts because of the amount of hip stability involved when performing the movement.

As you can see the amount of control that is needed to pull off this movement has the stabilizers firing like crazy in the hip, knee, and ankle. One thing I can say with great certainty is that when I find myself getting stronger in my accessory lifts such as this one…my primary lifts go up big time. The same can be said for my students as well.

I notice that when I’m performing the accessory lifts with greater weight and control the next day I jump to attack my big primary movements everything just seems to go a lot smoother. I just notice that I can perform the big primary lifts with a great deal more control and confidence. This is usually the case and is most always a sign that a new PR is on the horizon.

The Takeaway

The key to getting all the bang for your buck out of your training is to make sure it is balanced. Just training all primary lifts and no accessory lifts, OR all accessory lifts and no primary lifts is a sign of flawed training in my book.

The point of training is that you should want to master your body and when it comes to mastering the body other factors must come into play such as taking the time to train in movements that we may not like simply because we may not be good at them. That’s the point. If all we did was train the lifts we were good at all the time then we’d all quickly find that those plateaus and ceilings tend to come a lot sooner than we may like.

Additionally when including accessory lifts also make sure to emphasize single limb, or unilateral movements into the equation. You don’t have to do a lot of volume in your accessory movements, but make sure that what you are doing is based on quality and the results you want will come a lot faster.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. What kind of accessory exercises are you including into your training? Don’t be shy…post up in the comments below! Stay strong, train smart, and train as if your life depends on it!

Rather than punching or kicking so your limbs are straight, make sure you consider moving the arms or legs in a whipping motion. This means extending them, but not completely, and rapidly bringing it.

Irrespective of the move that somebody does, using all the muscles is suggested. Although someone may get a little bit tired, she or he should put some effort to not slacken by engaging the active limbs only. As an example, when punching, somebody must not just use the arm and shoulder, and back. One should engage muscles including the core and legs, that may stabilize him or her, in executing the movement. For this reason Phoenix kickboxing is definitely a difficult type of exercise.

Implementing one’s balance is a good idea. When not in class, practicing to stand one leg is mandatory. This assists in developing ankle and foot strength, that are very important to remaining upright when kicking. Some individuals can fall rather awkwardly because they wish to kick very high but do not adequate strength within their feet and ankles, providing a fall.

Running Is Not The Best Exercise To Get Fit

Let me make this disclaimer: I’m not anti-running however; I am an advocate that running isn’t the best form of exercise for everyone. Just the same as gymnastics, boxing, sword fighting, wrestling, tennis, and power lifting aren’t the best forms of exercise for everyone.

Here is my point — there is no single exercise modality that is the best for everyone.

For some reason everyone thinks that it is OK for anyone to go running in an effort to improve their health. This is simply not an appropriate recommendation. Running is not the BEST form of exercise. It is simply a form of exercise and one that requires preliminary strength and mobility prior to starting.

I hear all the voices out there, “we were designed to run, our bodies were built for it.” Sure we were. I agree.

We were also built to store as much fat as possible, swim underwater, and withstand extreme temperatures. That doesn’t mean any of these things are good for us in excess, or that we handle them well if we do not prepare our bodies for these demands first.

Running is a demanding, technical and highly skilled activity. If you do it improperly you will hurt yourself, just as you would with any other physically demanding endeavor. Yet, for some reason everyone thinks they can just go ahead and start running.

If you don’t believe me ask someone who is a runner which injuries they are currently working with — it’s usually a long list.

So when it comes to exercise we ask our members: what is your goal? You need to start with this question when choosing an activity or you are running in circles (pun intended!).

When we ask this question at my studio, most respond with answers including: decreasing body fat, improving cardiovascular health, improving strength and showing muscle definition.

Back to the program with running — it is not at the top of the list to accomplish any of those goals.

Running is not the best exercise selection to drop fat, improve cardiovascular health, and it won’t maximize your muscle definition. I am not going to go through the lists of research citations but if you don’t believe me I have them — hundreds of them.

If you are new to exercise or it has been a long time since you have exercised then running is a terrible way to start. Let me put it to you this way, would you start an exercise program by doing plyometrics or highly demanding gymnastics? Why do I ask? Because when you long distance run you are doing thousands of high impact plyometric repetitions. I would be called crazy if I made you do a 500-1000 squat jumps during an introductory training session, but it would be no more crazy then going for an hour jog and doing 500-1000 foot strikes.

So what is running good for? It is good for people who want to run. If you love running go run BUT train to run. The running schedules handed out to people via retail stores are terrible. No wonder there are so many injuries amongst runners. Sorry, your body was not designed to log 50-100km a week for months on end. Go run, but make sure you are doing it properly and training properly for it.

If you only run because you think its good for you or you are trying to get a lean and defined physique, well then, stop right now, because it is not the best route to your fitness goals (and again, running pun intended!).

The Only Workout That Helped Me Lose 20 Pounds…

As a food-loving, exercise-hating new mom, I can honestly say that I’ve tried everything to lose weight after giving birth. It’s so hard to get back into fighting form, especially if you never really enjoyed working out in the first place.

Breastfeeding whittled me down slightly, sure. But it also kept a nice layer of padding all over me, from head to toe. That coupled with my ravenous appetite and the sheer exhaustion from parenting a newborn, had me reaching for the chocolate-chip cookies and pasta at all times of day (and night).

Eight months after giving birth, I finally decided to take my health into my own hands. No more excuses about the lack of sleep or the baby’s schedule. I started obsessing over green juice, pedometers, and began my reluctant fitness adventures.

1. I tried every type of workout — nothing helped me lose weight.

I tried yoga, which was wonderful, but didn’t shift the scale. I tried SoulCycle with a group of fanatic friends. It made me sweat and got my heart racing, but didn’t shed an inch from my waistline. I tried a Pilates-based regime that promised to do wonders. Everyone at the beginner’s class was so model-sleek, I was positive this would be it. Then I fell off the equipment, while simultaneously sticking my foot through it, and embarrassed myself sufficiently enough to never return.

I also tried Zumba and other cardio-dance classes. Definitely fun, but they weren’t enough to keep me coming back after a few sessions.

2. I decided to try a barre class.

One day, I walked by a woman who had most beautiful body I had ever seen. She was lean yet curvy and toned, but not bulging with muscle. She was on her way to a barre class. Physique 57, to be exact.

Within a few sessions, I could see numerous big and small changes starting to take form.

With much trepidation and more than a pinch of disbelief, I went to my first class. The transformation was almost immediate. Within a few sessions, I could see numerous big and small changes starting to take form. My stomach felt flatter, my thighs looked incredible, my arms were slimmer and my shoulders more defined. I couldn’t believe it!

3. My body completely changed — for the better.

Using the methods of dancer Lotte Burke, barre classes specialize in building core strength and muscle definition through a series of exercises at the ballet barre, utilizing your own body weight to build strength. In one hour they cycle through every muscle group, focusing on the ones most women care about: backs of the arms, thighs, bottom, stomach, and waist. The repetitive routines are made challenging by the “up an inch, down an inch,” mantra chanted by the instructors. After a few minutes of raising and lowering your legs in increments, you’ll be on fire.

The instructors push you to embrace the burn and power through it as much as possible, building muscle and resistance for future sessions. It’s just enough to push you to the edge, but not enough to scare you away forever. The women who attend range in body shape and size, and everyone pushes themselves to achieve their own personal goals. We work in tandem, but are solely focused on getting our bodies through the hour.

Today, I’ve lost 20 pounds of my leftover “baby weight,” and continue to go to Physique classes about three times a week. I’m not a paid sponsor for them, and have no affiliation with the company whatsoever. I just want to share what worked for me. I posted something about Physique on social media and received more than a few nudges and whispers from mom friends who admitted that it too, had been their secret weapon. After so many failed experiments with various forms of exercise, I finally found something that works well on a postpartum body and I couldn’t be happier.

Training to Failure: 5 Questions You Need to Answer

“When I first started training, someone very smart told me that if I just stuck with the basics I’d be fine. Naturally, I ignored this information and struggled to see much progress. Eventually, my muscle building mistakes and lack of results frustrated me enough that I finally went back to my mentor, asked for his advice, and actually took his tips to heart and followed them to letter. Or so I thought.

I did the exercises, worked hard, but still didn’t quite see the changes I imagined. Some of this was due to impatience and unrealistic expectations. But part was due to a fundamental basic misunderstanding. I did not know how to build muscle. Heck, I didn’t know how to build a good workout. When I went to the gym, I still really didn’t understand how to lift weights.

Form was secondary to output. And listening to my body was secondary to…well…I never really listened to my body. Or even understood what that meant. And that was a big reason for years of subpar training

You see, when I lifted weights I tried to take every set to failure. I attempted to push my muscles to the point that they could not lift the weight, never really understanding that this wasn’t how someone at my level should be training. And it really isn’t how to build muscle or how to become stronger.

As I became older and smarter, I finally began to learn how to train the right way and when to push to failure, and it made all the difference.

To help you understand how hard to push, I reached out to Jordan Syatt, owner of Syatt Fitness. Let his be your lesson on everything you need to know about training to failure. –Born

Training to Failure: The Final Word

By Jordan Syatt

Think back to the first time you ever lifted weights. What did you do?

You probably walked up to a dumbbell rack, picked up the heaviest weight you could hold, and performed some exercise movement–heck, any exercise movement–to the best of your ability. Rep after rep after rep. And you did so until you could no longer move the weight. Then you rested—probably until you felt fresh again—and repeated. Sometimes, a little naivety and simplicity is a good thing.

But that simplicity is also why so many people are frustrated by what they do in the gym. Beyond the exercises you perform and the frequency with which you train, most people don’t know how hard to push on any given set. They don’t know how to build muscle. And they don’t know how to build strength. What they do know how to do is just perform exercises.

It’s the reason why “training to failure” is one of the most highly debated topics in the fitness industry and, truth be told, it’s extremely misunderstood.

I’ve spent enough time studying the topic to know that there’s no simple answer. Some people swear that taking every set to failure is the secret to success while others insist it’s a recipe for guaranteed injury and “overtraining.”

Is training to failure good or bad? Right or wrong? Will it help you achieve your goals or will it devastate your body and ruin your chances for success?

The answer – as most things in life – depends entirely on the individual as well as their needs, goals, and preferences.

Unfortunately, though, saying “it depends” doesn’t help to clarify the situation. You need to go to the gym and know what to do. So consider this your guide to know when—or if—training to failure should be incorporated into a training program.

The Tale of (Training to) Failure

While there are numerous types of muscular failure, the most commonly referenced type is known as Concentric Failure and it’s what most people are referring to when they talk about failure.

From a definition standpoint, concentric failure is:

“The point in a set where a full repetition cannot be completed during the concentric (positive, or muscle-shortening) phase of the rep without assistance from outside means (such as cheating or assistance from a training partner).”[1]

To use the bench press as an example, failure would be the point when—after lowering the bar—you are unable to press it back to the starting position. If you’ve ever read any of Adam’s work, you’d know that he had trouble with this scenario when he first started training and it almost caused him to be crushed.

Research comparing the differences between training to failure vs. not training to failure is, unfortunately, scarce. Furthermore, it’s unlikely that future research will tell us more than what strength coaches, bodybuilders, and other experienced fitness professionals have intuitively known for years.

That said, here’s what we know from a scientific standpoint:

Training to Failure Builds Muscle and Strength—If Not Done Repeatedly

Willardson et al. is perhaps the highest quality review of the literature pertaining to failure-based training. After examining the data, the authors concluded that training to failure is a valid method to use in order to enhance muscle hypertrophy, facilitate maximal strength gains, and break through plateaus.

However, it’s important to note that Willardson also stated “training to failure should not be performed repeatedly over long periods, due to the high potential for overtraining and overuse injuries. Therefore, the training status and the goals of the lifter should guide the decision-making process on this issue.

Training to Failure Increases Growth Hormone

Linnamo et al. found that training to failure resulted in a significantly greater increase in the secretion of growth hormone compared to non-failure based training. While this finding in no way, shape, or form proves that training to failure is better than other methods, it may lend credence to the success so many athletes, bodybuilders, and fitness enthusiasts have had with failure-based training.

There are other studies, but the findings are limited and hard to apply to the typical gym-goer. And that’s really what matters: How does this apply to you?

So let’s start there: You. After all, it’s your goals and training style that will play the biggest role in determining if and when you should push you body to failure. And that decision comes down to asking 5 questions.

Question 1: How Intense is Your Training?

Training intensity is perhaps the single most important factor in deciding whether or not training to failure is effective or even appropriate. Training intensity refers to the percentage of weight being lifted in relation to an individual’s 1-repetition maximum (1-RM).

In my opinion, training to failure at intensities at, or above 90 percent of your 1-RM should be avoided. Training to failure with such heavy weights will do very little (if anything) to enhance muscle hypertrophy and may actually hamper strength gains.

Furthermore, training to failure with near maximal weights will almost inevitably result in a breakdown of technique, drastically increasing the likelihood of injury.

Generally speaking, training to failure should be reserved for training percentages ranging from 50% to 85% 1-RM. While I rarely prescribe training to failure at either of these end-ranges, I believe that they are appropriate guidelines to follow for a majority of intermediate and advanced trainees.

Keep in mind, though, training to failure at 50% of your -RM can take an inordinate amount of time to complete and may not be well suited for those with time restrictions. On the other hand, 85% of your 1-RM is still heavy weight and the use of a spotter is strongly encouraged.

Question 2: What is Your Training Age?

There are three major categories signifying the current “level” of a given trainee. I call this “the trainee continuum” and they are: beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

An individual’s training status will determine what they need, and therefore someone who is a beginner might require unique methods of training that may substantially differ from someone who is at an intermediate or advanced stage.

For example, beginner trainees must, first and foremost, work on developing proper form and technique in compound movements such as the squat, bench press, deadlift, and chin-up. Consequently, training beginners to failure would likely do more harm than good as maintaining proper form becomes exceedingly difficult in a fatigued state.

On the other end of the spectrum, intermediate and advanced trainees usually understand what constitutes correct technique so their time would likely be better spent bringing up individual weaknesses through various methods of strength training.

Increasing muscle hypertrophy, for example, is often necessary for physique competitors and strength athletes to improve performance. Since training to failure “may activate a greater number of motor units” and potentially enhance muscle hypertrophy, training to failure is often warranted among these individuals.[2]

Question 3: What is Your Goal?

An individual’s desired goal will dictate numerous components of their program, not least of which includes whether or not they should train to muscular failure.

Take, for example, the differences between powerlifters and bodybuilders. Powerlifter’s are focused on maximal strength development and consequently train at relatively high intensities of their 1-RM. Additionally, powerlifter’s place a distinct emphasis on full body, compound movements, which require a great deal of skill to maintain proper form.

Bodybuilders, on the other hand, are focused on improving muscle hypertrophy and, as a result, train at comparatively lower intensities of their 1-RM because strength is not always the answer. What’s more, bodybuilders tend to emphasize smaller, isolation movements designed to target individual body parts, which require less skill to maintain proper technique.

Because of these different approaches and the types of exercises performed, bodybuilders are able to train to failure more frequently than powerlifters. Not only is it safer for bodybuilders in that they are using less complicated movements at lower training intensities, but it’s, in all likelihood, a highly beneficial component of their training protocol.

It’s important to note, however, that many elite powerlifters also train to failure on a regular basis. In fact, as a world record powerlifter myself, I regularly utilize failure-based training within my programs. That being said, I rarely train to failure in big, compound movements and almost exclusively use intensities between 60% to 80% of my 1-RM.

Question #4: What is Your Mindset?

Failure occurs when an individual is unable to complete another full repetition. This tends to happen due to the onset of fatigue.

Fatigue, however, is a truly subjective term and is nearly impossible to quantify. Based on pain tolerance, willpower, and other psychological factors, what constitutes muscular failure for one individual may only be slight discomfort to someone else. As such, it’s difficult to know whether a given individual is training to true muscular failure or simply cutting the set short.

Furthermore, it’s important to note that while some individuals derive pleasure from training to failure, others do not and attempting to force them may, in fact, deter them from strength training. Understanding the psychology of your clients (or yourself) and how they respond to training is of the utmost importance to long-term program adherence.

Question #5: What Exercises Are You Performing?

The more skill required for a lift, the less frequently it should be performed to failure. Conversely, the less skill required to perform a lift the more acceptable it becomes to train to failure.

Snatches, for example, are arguably the single-most complex lift and training them to failure is dangerous. Simpler multi-joint movements, such as variations of the chin-up, bench press, and lunge, are suitable for failure-based training but should be performed with extreme caution. Same can be said for exercises like squats.

Finally, single-joint exercises, including bicep curls, triceps extensions, and calf raises, are the least complex of movements and are far more appropriate to train to failure.

While it’d be easy to make a blanket statement about training to failure, ultimately it depends on your answers to the questions above. Failure-based training is a valuable tool in your training arsenal when applied correctly. If it fits your goals, needs, and preferences then use it wisely and with caution

What Happens If You Hit Your Fat Loss Goal And Hate It?

Today I’ve got a fun and interesting story for you.

It’s the kind of story you don’t hear a lot in the fitness industry, for two reasons: firstly, I’m telling it as a fairy tale, because why the hell wouldn’t I do that?

Secondly, because part of it can be a bit…I guess “off-putting” is the right term.

It’s a story about someone who wanted to lose a lot of weight, and when they hit their goal, decided they didn’t like it.

Why can this be off-putting?

Well, with so many people struggling to lose fat all the time, hearing “I accidentally got too lean” can be pretty disheartening.

The way one of my clients put it, “It’s sort of like being single and hearing someone in a happy relationship complain that they can’t go out without getting hit on. Like, just shut up.”

I get that. I’m going to ask you to suspend the inclination to react that way—because the lessons in this story are really valuable, and they ABSOLUTELY apply to everyone who is trying to get into great shape. Including you.

Even more importantly, this is a true story, after a fashion. And one you can learn from.

To begin, let me share this quote from one of my favorite books:

“Not only is my story designed to delight and entertain, but there is a kernel of truth hidden within, where only the cleverest student might find it…all the truth in the world is held in stories, you know.”

—Patrick Rothfuss, the Wise Man’s Fear

So, gather ‘round the fire, boys and girls, and get ready for story time with ol’ Roman.

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess named Madison. She met a handsome prince, fell in love, and—as you’d hope—they decided to marry.

The people rejoiced at the prospect of this union, and there was much celebration. Both kingdoms were filled with glee, and there were parties and galas thrown in the couple’s honor, and all who attended partook in well-mannered frivolity.

As happens, thoughts turned from one joyous occasion to the next, and eyes turned to the calendar for the Big Day.

If you have been married, you know that most of being engaged is very tedious. Once the party is over and the pictures of the ring have gotten all the Facebook likes and Instagram double taps, the work begins on planning the wedding.

But this is not a story about the planning of the wedding. It is a story about getting oneself ready for one.

You see, like all brides-to-be, Princess Madison wanted to look and feel her absolute best on her wedding day.

Planning a wedding is a stressful process, and Madison had during the course of it gained a bit of weight. She decided to address that.

For while all in the kingdom, Madison included, agreed the Princess was a great beauty, she wanted to lose weight, gain muscle, and improve her overall body composition.

Although Princess Madison was no stranger to exercise, she decided to seek additional knowledge to give herself an edge.

“After all,” reasoned Madison, “I’ll only get married once, and these pictures will last forever. I want to challenge myself and see how fit I can be.”

It was this line of thinking that led the Princess to seek council and wisdom, to seek help in her quest to lose body fat and improve her health.

Much searching ensued. Princess Madison read through the vast annals in the kingdom’s Great Library of the Internet. She perused tomes and tablets, scrolls and spells.

But, alas! There was so much. Too much. “How can I do this? All of this information…it’s too confusing. I read one thing, and makes sense. Then I read another that contradicts the first! What shall I do?”

Despairing, Princess Madison began to think her only option was to just starve herself and work out every day to get ready for the Royal Wedding.

Instead, she did almost nothing. Overwhelmed with information, the Princess became afflicted by paralysis by analysis: a condition created by having too many choices. Many suffer from this.

But! In the fullness of time, a royal messenger arrived with an email that filled the Princess with hope. An email filled with a great opportunity. An email heralding destiny. She read through it several times, and decided to take action.

And so it was that Princess Madison came to enlist the aid of the Great Wizard Roman, a sorcerer whose mystery was exceeded only by his power, and whose skill was bested only by his hair.

“I shall help you, Princess. I shall not demand your True Name or your First Born. I require only your trust and your word that you will do your best.”

The Wizard Roman was known far and wide for his skill as a coach, and his ability to help anyone get into amazing shape. He had penned a tome that appeared on all of the Kingdom’s Bestseller Lists, and had worked with many famous knights, lords, and ladies.

Princess Madison looked the sorcerer in the eyes, and in that moment knew his power, and that she was in the right hands “We have an accord, wizard,” she said happily.

Roman nodded once, sagely. “The bargain is struck!” With that, he clapped his hands. There was a blinding light, and a gout of flame, and he disappeared.

As the smoke cleared, Roman’s voice echoed through air, “Check your email in the time it takes the sun to rise and set three times.”

“That was unnecessarily dramatic,” Madison thought to herself, but decided to stick with it.

In less than a fortnight, her training would begin.

Let us examine the process.

When Princess Madison began, she weighed 155 pounds, and measured at 25% body fat.

Her goal, like many people who decide to undergo a body transformation, was to get as lean as possible. But she also wanted to be strong.

In her Magical Client Assessment Form, Princess Madison wrote:

Overall, I want to get a lot leaner, but I also to increase my strength and continue to build muscle. I also want definition in my upper body and midsection. I definitely want to tone up my lower half and get rid of the side-ass that has somehow begun to appear!

I also want to keep my big (muscular) butt and build up my hamstrings (I LOVE hamstrings that pop, but mine also seem to have plateaued.) My wedding dress shows off my arms, back, and booty–I really want to look great in this dress.

For performance, I’d like to be able to do more than 4 unassisted pull-ups; I seem to have plateaued and can’t get to that 5th pull-up. I also want to strengthen my squats and deadlifts.

Using that as the foundation for his spells, the Wizard Roman did all that he promised, and all that Princess Madison requested.

The week of her wedding, Madison weighed 145 pounds and measured at 11% body fat.

In the course of just 16 weeks of coaching with the Archmagus of Body Transformation, Princess Madison had lost 23 pounds of fatand gained 13 pounds of muscle.

When the Big Day came, the bride looked beautiful. For that day, Princess Madison felt she was not just the fairest in the kingdom, but the world, just as every bride should on her wedding day.

And the pictures? They turned out amazing. Everything was perfect, as a Royal Wedding ought to be.

The Princess departed for her honeymoon with her Prince, sojourning to an enchanted island to enjoy great food and their new love.

When the Princess returned from her honeymoon, she found that she was not truly happy. Something felt off. Not with her life, and certainly not with her marriage. But with her body itself.

Confused, she spoke the magical Charm of Summoning that Roman had taught her, “Where you at, bro?”

When she turned around, the sorcerer was lounging comfortably in the throne, resplendent in his purple velvet wizard’s robes (+4 charisma) and optic white Converse sneakers (+2 agility).

“Welcome back, Princess. How may I be of service?”

Madison thought a moment. “To be honest, wizard, I think I’m too lean. I don’t love how I look, or how I feel. Is it possible to lose too much fat?”

Roman was silent, but made a slight hand motion, prompting the Princess to continue.

“I think…” She hesitated. “I think that I thought being super lean was what I wanted. And I did. Just not all the time. It was great for the wedding, and I enjoyed it. But maintaining it is too much. And I would be happier if I were a tad…softer?”

The Archmage smiled, and leaned forward in the throne. “So, that’s simple to fix. What’s the real problem? What are you afraid of?”

In that moment, she realized exactly what the issue was. “I’m afraid that if I loosen things up, I’ll go back to where I was. That I’ll never be able to do this again.”

“I see. Anything else?” Roman asked gently.

“It’s just…I wanted so long to be leaner, and worked so hard to lose fat. Actively trying to GAIN fat seems like a betrayal, and it’s creating a mental block for me.”

Nodding serenely, the wizard smiled again. “I understand,” he said, rising smoothly to his feet. He walked towards the princess, tossing his luxurious hair from his eyes as he came to stand before her.

Resting his hand gently on the Princess’s arm, Roman continued “This is actually pretty common. I see it all the time with figure competitors, models, and knights who have to make weight for jousting and other sports.

“Peaking for an event is one thing, but not everyone wants or needs to be super lean all the time. It’s okay. It’s okay if you don’t like the look of it. It’s okay if the thought of maintaining it is unappealing. You don’t need to stay here.

“Descending from a mountain after you have reached the top doesn’t take away the achievement of having climbed it in the first place. And there is no sense in trying to live at the summit if it doesn’t make you happy.

Do you understand?”

The Princess was happy beyond measure and clapped her hands excitedly. “I understand!”

“Good!” explained the wizard. He smiled his dazzling smile, and asked, “Are you ready, then?”

“I’m ready,” the Princess said. “When do we begin?”

The sorcerer turned to look at her, fading from view as his body became incorporeal, his Cheshire Cat grin lingering a few moments after the rest of his form has dissipated. “We’ve already begun,” came the reply.

Madison rolled her eyes. “So dramatic.”

Over the next 16 weeks of coaching Princess Madison set new goals for herself, and achieved each and every one.

She added weight to the bar constantly, and she increased her max on all of her lifts by 10, 20, or even 30 pounds. She was deadlifting 185 for reps. Her endurance improved dramatically. She felt great.

And, yes, she slowly gained some body fat. But at no point did she feel like she was going “backwards.”

When her time working with the wise and powerful Roman had ended, Princess Madison weighed 150 pounds, and measured at 13% body fat.

In terms of her body composition, she gained just over a pound of muscle and 5 pounds of fat from her leanest condition.

Compared to her starting point, she was still in the positive. At the end of her journey, the Princess had gained a total of 14 pounds of muscle, and lost 19 pounds of fat.

Most importantly, she had achieved all of her goals. She was happier, healthier, and stronger. She loved her body, and had learned that—for her, at least—leaner wasn’t always better.

The full picture of a princess. Madison’s starting and ending points.

After eight months of coaching, after many high fives and fist bumps, Madison and Roman parted ways. She was ready to live in her new body, and use the knowledge she’d gleaned from him to continue making progress.

As for Roman, the Archmagus of Body Transformation? It was time for him to move on.

He gathered his robes around him, flicked his fabulous hair from his sparkling eyes, and thumped the butt of his staff on the hard tile floor once, twice, thrice.

With that, he departed, ready to work with another Prince or Princess, another lord or lady, another knight or knave.

But that, of course, is a story for another day.
