NB Strength Coach ABC's


School is around the corner and I am public school teacher/coach so I came up with some ABC's of things to consider when you are training. And if you see any links throughout the blog post click on them for some more information

Always try to beat your previous workout in reps or weight.
Barbells first. Everything else after.
Conditioning such as sprints, stairs, Prowler, sleds will help you in the weight room.

Deadlifts and Dips are thing you should be doing. Regularly

Exercising is for The Situation, you should be training.

Front Squats will increase your squat and deadlift.

Goodmornings will also do this.
Hack squats are for bodybuilders.
Internships with Collegiate Strength & Conditioning coaches are invaluable.

Jack LaLanne was ahead of his time.

Kettlebells. If you have some consider yourself lucky, if not it's not the end of the world.
Litvinov Sprints should really be called Man-Makers. Look it up.

Muscle Milk is probably not the best protein on the market.
Never do Leg Extensions. Too much shearing force on your knees and long list of other reasons not to do them.
Offer advice only when someone asks for it.

Press things over your head. It will strengthen you from head to toe.

Quit whining about your aches and pains. Everyone is hurt and if you train with partner or group you will bring morale down.
Rest will make you feel better, lose weight, and get stronger.

Sometimes less is more. A shortened training session will help you get through your entire training cycle without losing any ground.
Train like your in like your in Prison. 1-Hour to get as BIG, STRONG AND FAST as you can so you don't end up someone's b*@*$%. (NO DISRESPECT TO ANY ONE THAT HAS BEEN LOCKED UP!)

Understand you will have some days in the gym that suck. Learn from them and move on.
Vary your training when possible. Sets, reps, rest, equipment, exercise.
Welders should be your best friend. They can help make homemade equipment cheap.

X (Malcolm)-Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hands on you, send him to the cemetery.
Yoke It Up. Jim Wendler on Neck Training. Flexion, Extension, Rotation. Sets of 20 reps.

Zero room for error if they ask you to spot them. Know what you are doing and how to spot and for crying out loud don't touch the bar and say "It's All You!"
