WHY YOU SUCK AT STRONGMAN! – A Blast from the Cannon

’ve beesuckn lifting weights since I was in middle school, and I started competing in strongman when I got to college. Five years and two national championships later, I can still openly admit I don’t have all the answers. I know, what a shocker. If you asked me years ago I would have said “I have no idea what the f*** I’m doing” and it would’ve been true. Thankfully, I had some really experienced and smart people around me.

I Have An Agenda: So Let’s Get Started!

In an age when commuagenication is easier than ever, people seem more afraid of meaningful dialog than ever before! Not a day goes by that I don't find myself reading some training or diet article that has at least one or two points i find questionable or in need of clarification. Not in always in a "negative" of hurtful kind of way just in a "I don't agree with that" or "I don't understand your point" kind of way! I admit that i am more than a little over the top when it comes to being direct and specific but if someone is willing to post their work in a public forum should they expect / welcome dialog?

The Tipping Point: Anterior Pelvic Tilts

 

Not many people know wtilthat a pelvic tilt is, or how it’s developed! In fact, it is a maleficent player in faulty body mechanics, instability and deficient posture and can stem (or be stemmed from) other musculo-skeletal dysfunctions. The origination of pelvic tilting can come from our everyday activities and postures which we hold for a sustained period of time. On the other hand, Pelvic tilting can come from other pre-existing structural or mechanical pathologies. There are two types of tilting – posterior and anterior; for this articles purpose Anterior Pelvic Tilting will be reviewed in depth – and it will focus on correction of the tilt, while exposing underlying issues contributing.

A College Kids Journey to an “Unattainable” Dream Rob Kearney!

Being a 22 year olcolleged collegiate STRENGTH athlete is different from most other “normal” collegiate athletes. “Normal” athletes lift weights to get better at their sport, but lifting IS my sport. This is a foreign concept amongst most college campuses, but luckily Springfield College welcomed my passion with open arms. I have been a part of a group of guys and girls who love lifting weights and being the strongest they can possibly be. Throughout my 6 years at Springfield College (undergrad and grad) I have gone through many coaches, gotten tons of advice and been lead in many different directions, and without all of those people and influences I would not be where I am today… one of the youngest professional strongmen in the country.

Fundamentals of Overhead Pressing

funda

The term Bend the bar is used ubiquitously within the Powerlifting community and from my experience is misinterpreted and/or misapplied. Bending the bar or pulling the bar apart is a way of creating tension into the bar versus passively letting the bar sit in the hands/shoulders.

Beginner Deep Water Squat Workout

jonBeginner Deep Water Squat Workout

By Jon Andersen

 

Squatting for me is a spiritual experience.  Squatting isn’t just an exercise, it is a place where I can lose myself and find myself all in one set. The squat is a movement to make your whole body strong and if you do it right it will make you mentally strong. Squatting can put you in the face of adversity faster and more effectively than any other exercise in the gym. If you’ve got the sack you can stretch your work capacity and mental toughness to places beyond your imagination. The squat is the best, most aggressive way possible to increase mental toughness.

By Scott “Crusher” Wallace

I have been competing in Strongman since June 2012 and am currently getting ready for my third season. In the past two years, I have competed in seven competitions and have done very well with four top three finishes including a first place finish and a trip to North American Strongman (NAS) Nationals in October 2013. Up until Nationals, I thought I was doing pretty good and was able to compete at a high level with other top Strongman. Well, that all changed at Nationals when I found out what strong really is!
