Getting Ready to Get it Going

Gotta Have A Plan

A snap shot of a single workout tells me nothing when evaluating the potential of a resistance, speed, or agility plan.  Progressive and periodized are elements that can only be seen over an extended period. We ran the holidays with a variable plan.  We started the year with a 4 week ‘stair case’ plan that…

Push Up Variations

So much that can be done even when trapped away from the gym and all the cool gym toys. We mess with several push up variations that have proven very challenging.  Some, many of you are getting good at.  The following video will show you there are many more options that you can yet progress…

Throwers and Their Shoulders
