Training Tip: Choose Wisely.

We use trap bar deadlifts for the reward of max strength with less risk of form break down, excessive lumbar flexion, rounding of the spine ,whole spine period rounding and feeling beat up.

Training time is precious. We want more bang for our buck in less time in the strength room to recover for skill workouts.

The skills pay the bills.

Be care with exercise selection, consider the risk vs reward of it, for example, we don’t use behind the head over head Barbell presses, one reason the close packed position of the shoulder joint.

We use exercises that get us strong without feeling excessively beat up with the risk of injury due to technical complexity and more importantly are patterns in our striking sport. ( The squat, bend, lunge, twist, hinge, pull, and press all are.)

Powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting, Strong Man training are ALL sports within their own.

Practice and train for skill, become stronger, faster, and more explosive with exercise that make sense for your training age, training experience, and fighting art at hand
