Exercises You Should Be Doing: 2-Bench Plank/DB Row

As some of you may or may not know I’ve been banged up as of late, and haven’t really been training up to my normal standards. I’m still heading to the gym everyday, of course (I work in one, so I have no excuse not to), but it’s been a bit of a downer the… Read more

Exercises You Should Be Doing: Band Lateral Lunge with OH Driver

I wish I were more like Ben Bruno. Sure the guy is a freak of nature when it comes to feats of strength, but even more admirable is the uncanny ability he has when it comes to thinking of cool and innovative exercises that I’ve never seen before. It’s like the guy has a perpetual… Read more

Exercises You Should Be Doing: Split Stance Low Cable Row

If you ask me there are only a handful of things in this world that people seemingly can’t get enough of: 1.  Cowbell 2.  Twilight (I’m still trying to figure this one out). 3.

Normally with this segment I gravitate towards exercises that fall under one of the three categories: 1.  Those exercises I see most people perform poorly (seated rows, push-up variations, single leg variations, etc). 2.  Those that are new to me, and thus, new to the reader, but can be performed by most everyone without running… Read more

Exercises You Should Be Doing: DB Reverse Lunge to 1-Legged RDL

This is an exercise that’s been in my programming repertoire for a while now, and every time I place it into someone’s program, I either get one raised eye brow of intrigue or a chuckle; as if to say, “dude, really?  This?  Come on….I need something more challenging.” Then, of course, those who fall into… Read more

Exercises You Should Be Doing: Band Pallof Press Squat & Split Squat

I have two surprises for you today. 1.  Normally when I do an Exercises You Should Be Doing post, I give only one recommendation.  Today, however, I’m giving you TWO! 2.  In addition, not only do you get two new (to you) exercises to try out, but you also get to see me in all… Read more
