Week 1

Tony Montgomery gives you a 15-week prep based on RPE. He goes in-depth as to why he prefers RPE, so you’ll learn to listen to your body on a daily level to adequately build and work on the intent of the day. Download the program now!

Tired of your usual post-workout meal and not interested in enduring food allergies from eating the same foods too often (according to Dr. Serrano)? Enjoy Matt Ladewski’s recipe and prep for a pork tenderloin fillet and Jasmine rice combo. Make this tonight for dinner!

Week 2

Chris Janek gives you a 12-week powerlifting program he so eloquently trademarked as The Dogg Shitt Method™. This 12-week training cycle is set up in two three-week waves. As you’ll see, the split is designed for real life. Check this out on October 7th.

How would you rate your sleep hygiene? Does it edge closer to immaculate or swing low to dirty? More specifically, are there any beams of light in your room? Any electronics? Do you have sex in your bedroom? Is it warm in there? If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, it sounds like you may be in need of an upgrade. JM Blakely gives you nine ways to upgrade your sleep hygiene immediately. Read on October 13th.

More this week: 

  • Find ways to get unstuck
  • Try a 5-week program from Mark Dugdale to dominate the goblet squat

Week 3

We’ve fine-combed through our articles on the topic of internships and created a procedural plan to prepare you for this experience. From the aesthetics of your resume to curriculum examples, we give a special thanks to its contributors: Ashley Jones, Jeremy Frey, Coach G, Matt Rhodes, Joe Schillero, Nic Bronkall, Mark Watts, Todd Hamer, and more!

Keep in mind, the best part of this feature is that these guidelines are applicable to every professional setting including strength and conditioning. Read on October 15th. 

Eric Maroscher retraces Dr. Franco Columbu’s life and in biography-fashion, shares Columbu’s many contributions and successes during his 78 years of life. Read on October 18th.

More this week: 

  • Understand the difference between training partners and people you train with
  • Begin a 16-week powerlifting prep using daily undulating periodization

Week 4

We interview Power in Motion owner Alex Powers and tour his new gym serving Gahanna, Ohio. Listen to his story, see how an open storefront space dramatically changed to cater to clients of all ages and goals, and learn what he considers to be the best feature of his gym. And yes, he and his clients love the elitefts Belt Squat, but that’s not the best feature. Coming soon!

More this week:

  • New columns from Alycia Israel, Don Day, Matt Mills, Chad Aichs, and Jennifer Petrosino!

More Content!

Other features to keep an eye for include: I AM with Clint Darden; a special video feature on the new elitefts’ Tri Plyo Cube; and more Table Talk Podcasts with guests Dr. Eric Serrano and Mystery Guest (quite a name, eh?).
