Excelling at the Big Lifts
TG Note: My head feels like it got hit by a mack truck today, and I’ve made the executive decision to take the day off from work. Well, truth be told, “taking the day off from work” just really means I won’t be at the facility today in person. Instead, I’ll be spending today catching up on plenty of other things to keep myself occupied – programs to write, emails to answer, an apartment to clean, and a few episodes of Fringe to watch.
Nonetheless, as luck would have it, I had a new article go up on t-nation.com today titled Excelling at the Big Lifts which saves me a little time trying to come up with some blog content today. Let me know what you think!
Part of my job as a strength coach is to not only help you get bigger, faster, and/or stronger, but with any luck, make someone of the opposite sex want to get naked in front of you — preferably on more than one occasion.
