Talking Shop on The FitCast

So I had just finished doing all of my Sunday morning errands yesterday (laundry, grocery shopping, crushing bacon, what have you) and finally sat down to try to figure out what I wanted to accomplish for the rest of the day. I had a few things on tap.  For starters, I had to catch up… Read more

Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work: PPT, Arnold, and Fitness Writing

Going to keep this one brief today.  Ben Bruno’s in the house and we’re about ten seconds away from getting our gunification on. Yeah buddy! Don’t Be Like Donald Duck – Bret Contreras While this article may be a little high on the geek factor for some, for those interested in pelvic mechanics and the… Read more

Cressey Performance In-Service: Get-Up/Swing Tutorial

Around two weeks ago I wrote a post titled There’s a Time and Place For Everything. Kettlebells Included, where I essentially explained that everything in the realm of strength and conditioning is a tool, and should be viewed as such.

As is the case every time he and I get together, shenanigans and tomfoolery are had, but you’re also going to learn a thing or two as well. What IS SuperHero… Read more

Does Everyone Need to Squat?

In a word: No. Actually, much like everything… depends. But before I get a fusillade of hate mail for making such a heretical comment, hear me out for a second. There’s a huge dichotomy between the word need and want. Need and want are too different things. Do you need to crush beers on the… Read more

Superhero Fat Loss

If there’s anyone who knows fat loss, it’s my boy John Romaniello (or Roman, for those who don’t like last names with a lot syllables). The man is a specimen, not to mention one of the smartest guys I know, and he’s one of only a handful of fitness professionals whom I would classify as… Read more
