    He has a chest full of military decorations, a shoulder full of titanium and 8 combat deployments in the middle east….but all that said, he prefers simply to be called, “the day guy.” ….Here is what we mean.

  • RELENTLESS BENCH TRAINING...PART II

    Does it take courage to have 900LBS over your throat and bench it??? Although that answer is a resounding YES, the men pressing 900LBS in this log know without question that the children they are preparing to compete for are far more courageous, as on a daily basis they face the fears that come with their life-threatening illnesses…..here is what we mean…..

This coaching log is a salute to the Father’s out there who balance their training, work, spirituality and family in a way where that allows them the honor of being called, “Dad.” ….Here is what we mean….

  • THE COMPLEXITY OF THE BENCH SHIRT

    Initially a piece of safety gear to protect the lifter (like a belt and knee wraps), the bench shirt has changed, progressed and evolved into a highly sophisticated part of the geared lifters’ world. In the hands of an experienced shirted-lifter, the bench shirt can be an advantageous tool toward a larger total. In the hands of a lifter lacking that experience, guidance and user-know-how, the shirt can at best leave them shaking their head, or at worst, leave them injured.

  • TRAIN LIKE YOU ARE GOING TO COMPETE

    How you train in the gym is paramount to your success….or your failure at the meet. Warm-ups and the sets that lead up to your working sets require the same attention to detail as the working sets…..Here is why….

  • EASTER EGGS AND MONOLIFTS

    Heavy weight is the desired main course. To that end come the various ingredients that help create this main course...one of them being often neglected and always dreaded, high rep days. Neglecting the little weights can compromise progress toward the big weights…..here is what we mean….

  • RAW HYBRID DEADLIFTS

    Some deadlifters prefer conventional, some prefer sumo, some can pull equally well with both. But what if you are a deadlifter who isn’t comfortable with either? Perhaps hybrid deadlifts would benefit you. Here is what we mean….

  • GREEN EGGS AND DEADZ

    Deadlifting can be a smorgasbord instead of just a meal if you are willing to open up to something new. Here is what we mean by that...

  • WHY BIG GUYS USE LITTLE WEIGHTS

    ...the highlight reels are heavy and hard core, but what the big boys have learned a long time ago is in order to be able to put up the big numbers, you have to also put the time in with the not so big numbers….here is what we mean….

    WHY BIG GUYS USE LITTLE WEIGHTS
  • THE BLEEDER!!!!!

    Stick around a little while and you will see the shooting stars of the sport come and go. These are the lifters who go big, win big and burn out even bigger. Stick around for a little while longer in the sport and you will see the shooting stars come and go, over and over and over again. They just don’t last as their bodies can’t put up with the non-self-regulating abuse that is put upon them. Stick around a few decades and you will also note the longevity of the truly great lifters, the longevity of lifters like Dave Ricks, Ed Coan, Brian Schwab and Sioux-z’ of the world (all with 2+ decades in the competitive game at the top of their weight class and federation). What is an essential ingredient to their longevity and success???? SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE.
