I’ve been training pretty hard and consistent for weeks now, with one week of rest two weeks ago. Last week was a rep week so tonight I decided that it was a good night to see where I’m at in my bench shirt. It has been at least two months since I put the shirt on last and about 10…

Going into week 4 of my meet prep. cycle just happened to be my favorite squat exercise, Chain Squats. When planning a competition training program, I always include at least two exercises where I can overload the weight at the top of the squat. This way my body gets accustomed to handling the heavy weights. It is a crucial part…

www.rawfitnesscombine.com When my friends over at Raw Fitness Combine asked me to write a small e-book on squatting, I was honored. They were looking for a book about squat form, something they could give it away when people signed up for their newsletter. As most people already know, I have already writing just the book.  Squat Like A Powerlifter: The Beginner’s Guide to…
