I've come to believe that the overhead press is one of the most important and valuable exercises for the human body. It’s not only outstanding for total shoulder strength and health, but for our entire body. Some people may not agree with my view on this and would say it’s not a necessary movement. I would disagree that, but that's another story.
Here’s a bold statement.
I know a simple, deceptive training plan that can get you stronger in just 7 days.
I know what you’re probably thinking.Yeah right.
I can sense the skepticism and doubt because that's exactly what I'd be thinking, too.
Here's what I can tell you.
The approach I'll share with you right now will hold true for the majority of people who read this.
Not everybody, but most.
So, let me explain to you how you can very likely be stronger in just 7 days.
Loaded carries develop unrelenting strength.
The concept is simple, you pick up something heavy and go for walk.
How deceiving they are.
In addition, they’re also outstanding for conditioning, grip strength, and core strength. And, we all know that grip strength and core strength greatly contributes to full body strength. In other words, grip and core strength make us stronger, in general.
Carries also build mental toughness, strength endurance or work capacity, muscular hypertrophy, and a host of other unexplained benefits, some of which I’ll cover here.
If there’s an exercise that could probably be used in any training session, it’s the loaded carry.
What person desires to be physically weak? Who would refuse to feel strong and powerful in their body? And, what individual would want to potentially suffer from ill-health, diminished performance, or low confidence and self-esteem? The answer is that no individual desires any of these things. Yet, many turn...
Over the years, I’ve thought a lot about my rules for training that I try to live by. The goal is to have something tangible and useable I can apply during each training session.
My rules have evolved from many down to 3 simple and unbreakable rules that apply for both short-term and long-term training success.
These rules are very basic concepts that allow me to train at a high level over a long period of time, which we could define as high performance.
