I'm sure that by now you can tell that there are some "MUSTS" when designing an effective strength training and hypertrophy program, right?
Let's list them out all together....
1. Squats- Box Squats and Back Squats...
while we're at it, any damn variation you can think of!
We haven't quite gotten there yet, but when we do, you will know why they are so important to the overall affectivenes of your training!
3. THE DEADLIFT- This is the grand-daddy!
If you are serious about building raw strength, the one lift you MUST include is the deadlift!
Now, I have put together a quick little video on the deadlift, it's basic variations, and the most effective way to perform the lift for the average strength athlete. Let it be known that there are hundreds of tiny, minuet details to all of the lifts listed above. We are simply only scratching the surface. Remember, the goal of this is to give you the right information in the proper doses so that you feel confident to take them on and implement them. If we went into every single detail of each movement, you would be just as confused and frustrated as you were before you started following this blog.
That being said, I feel that the information I have given you in today's video on the deadlift and sumo deadlift is quality stuff. It covers the pieces that you need to know in order to perform the movement safely and as it was intended.
One final note before I send you into video viewing pleasure....
As you have probably guessed by now, I will be posting a lot of information on topics that have already been discussed. No. This is not the result of some rare form of blogging Alzheimer's, but rather my attempt at giving you every bit of information I know on these topics. I would reccommend that you consistently go back and refreash yourself on those "repeater" blog topics just so you are on top of your strength game!
For example, here is the link to the first couple of blogs I wrote on the deadlift. Read back through as soak that shit up like a sponge, people!
On to the video!
