Okay, I know this is a little out of the ordinary for a “Technique Tuesday” post, but since we all know how important eating healthy nutritious meals are for helping us reach our fitness goals, I figured this might be a fun spin on the usual Tuesday subject. Besides, we can just say that we’re brushing up on your cooking technique.

I’ve been getting a lot of people asking me for nutritional advice lately, and though I have some knowledge on the subject, I’ll actually be having a few of my favorite RD’s (Registered Dietitians) write some guest posts on the site soon, and they are much better equipped to answer some of the questions you all have been sending me.

As a trainer/coach my job is to help you achieve your goals and fulfill your potential. That's it. That's the job. Whatever that entails to get you there, that's what I am going to do. It's just that simple.

Any coach worth a damn will tell you what I'm about to say; you cannot screw up, it's just not possible.

You will stumble, you will fall, and it will be hard; but no matter how long you are down for, if you choose to get back up, it's my job as a coach to be the hand you reach for each and every time.

Hey everyone, welcome to another edition of Technique Tuesday. Today I’ll be going over proper technique for the 1-Arm Dumbbell Row. 

As with most of the exercises I feature in this series, again have one that has a ton of benefits for lifters of all levels but sadly many coaches, trainers, and trainees seem to find a way to butcher.

When done correctly the 1-Arm Dumbbell Row has tremendous carryover for people of all fitness abilities. Whether your goal is to build strength, size, or just simply feel and move better, this is an exercise that should have a place in your routine. Hopefully these few cues I’ll give you will help clean up your form or that of your clients.

I’m still having a hard time believing that I’m actually sitting down to write this article.  Anyone who knows me, knows off my many issues with Crossfit’s methodology and programming (or lack there of). I could just as easily be sitting down to write an article breaking down the many flaws I see with it like high repetition olympic lifts with maximal loads, prioritizing the score of your workout over technique of the exercises you’re doing, or the higher than normal rate of injury, but the truth is, there are plenty of articles like that out there, and there are in fact some things I really like about Crossfit.

The latest and greatest installment of Technique Tuesday is here, and today I’ll be breaking down a favorite exercise for many people, the Box Jump.

As with most of the exercises I use for this series, it is an exercise which a great many people execute poorly in both practice and application. The one thing that is slightly different about the Box Jump from the rest of the exercises I’ve featured so far in this series is that it is much more advanced than one may think.
