Strongman Training for The Military Athlete

So a couple of common themes you may have noticed around here are: #1 - More is not better (As I wrote about the Pareto Principle a couple weeks ago) #2 - I think all athletes, especially military and tactical types, should be selecting exercises based on how much...

The Pareto Principle: Why “More” is not better

The Pareto Principle, also known as the 80/20 rule, states that for many events roughly 80% of effects come from 20% of the causes. More specifically, 80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts. While I haven’t talked about this subject specifically it is...

Training specificity & why goals matter

Should I Train Twice Per day?

In the military, working out twice a day is almost a requirement to build actual strength and fitness. If you rely on the typical morning routine performed and it’s reliance on high-rep bodyweight movements and long, relatively slow, aerobic efforts you’ll probably...

Knowing Your Enemy
