Welcome to MONSTER SQUAT!

Monster Squat is my little way to give back to the sport of powerlifting. I hope to share my years of experience in the sport, especially my success in the squat.

If you don’t know who I am, you can go to the About Me page to read more about me or to my Lifting Profile to see my accomplishments.

I just finished the Members Area of the site, which consists of a Q & A section and access to the online version of my books.  I plan on building the area to include even more content in the months to come.

There are two membership levels currently:

The Basic Membership is FREE and gives you  access to the Member’s Q & A section, which is a question and answer board for members to share their knowledge.

The Monster Membership, for a small one time fee, gives you access to the Member’s Q & A section as well as access to online versions of both my books “Monster Squat: A Step By Step Guide to a Bigger Squat!” and “From Gym Lifter to Competitive Powerlifter: The Beginner’s Guide to Competitive Powerlifting!” The online books are more than worth the small one time fee to join.

If you need more one-on-one customized counseling, I plan on offering virtual training consultations via Email, Texts, Skype, Facetime, or Google Hangouts. Contact me for more information.

Join today and don’t miss out on any posts.!

Lift Strong, Lift Safe, Live Strong!

Time to reinvent myself as a lifter

First Chain Squat Experience

One Down, Two To Go!

Body weight:     Approximately 228 lbs. Workout:             Deadlift Outcome:            Better than expected A few weeks ago, I pulled a muscle in my forearm and have been very wary about deadlifting.

A Solid Powerlifting Program for Anyone

This is the program I have been using for the past few months. I used this going into my last competition and it worked out real good. It is a two heavy, two light day program. Its a little hard to get used to at first. Both heavy days are at the beginning of the week, then the rest of the week is speed and light. At first your body will feel sore but it but it will get used to it. After Tuesday, all the heavy work is done so it gives a lot of time to recover between the heavy workouts. Besides, for anyone that is competing, you have to do all three lifts the same days so two days of heavy work in a row won't kill you.

A Simple Powerlifting Program for Beginners

A few months ago, I was contacted by a new lifter. He was wondering if I had any decent powerlifting programs that he could follow as a beginner. So I had to think back almost 13 years and remember what I had done.  This is a pretty simple program and works out real well for...
