The program within is called One Big, One Small—there is one major movement, and a secondary movement supports this major movement. It can be used by anyone irrespective of sport or training goal to improve performance or get bigger and stronger.
I believe that the individualization of programming in team sports is the real holy grail of strength and conditioning. The application of the 3x3 programming matrix will ensure that each player will have the best opportunity to improve in the areas of dire need.
Interested in creating your own strongman conjugate program? I consulted with the experts and wrote a guide to give you all the information you need to set yourself up for strength gains in your lifts — where it matters.

The 4.30 journey is a story that every athlete who has had to run a 40-yard dash can relate to. It is my journey from running a 4.66 40-yard dash as a freshman in college to running a 4.30 for the New Orleans Saint scouts and the New Orleans Arena 1 football team.

This strength program is a combination of several styles and programs that I have discovered in my ten years of experience. You will read about systems that I’ve learned from Joe DeFranco, Dave Tate, and Louie Simmons. You will learn philosophies that I’ve adopted from BFS’s Greg Shepard, Mike Boyle, and Paul Chek. I’ve learned a ton by training with Strongman champion, Tom Mitchell, and watching videos from the Parisi School.
