The Inverted Juggernaut Method

An awesome strength program for athletes, which seemed to be working wonders for me until I finished it and realised nothing had changed.

Trying It Westside

I try out the Westside Barbell Method, which is like the original and heavier version of Beyond 531.

Trying Out Wendler 5/3/1

I'm struggling to get into Wendler's 5,3,1 program for lifting. Like he says himself, you have to believe in the program you're following...and I'm not sure that I do.

12 Weeks o’ Lifting

In 12 weeks, I have increased my combined lifting total by about 63kg/140lbs. It's partly due to improvements in my technique and partly because I have utilised a strict 5x5 programme that only involves one exercise per day. Check it out!

Balancing Strength and Body Weight

After seven weeks of training, I'm getting stronger...but I'm also getting heavier, which is problematic in a weight-controlled spot like powerlifting. Hmm.

Now I Want To Be A Powerlifter…

Dammit. I took up powerlifting as a simple way to get stronger whilst continuing with all my other types of training...and now I'm applying to compete in 2017. I'm expecting it to be an exercise in humiliation (I'll use that as a post title further down the line).

Test of Strength?

Powerlifting seems less like a test of strength and more like a test of your ability to perform three arbitrary movements with no further application.

Why Weight Training?

Few kinds of progress are as measured and irrefutable as the results of weight training. When you're in a slump, it can help you keep moving forwards whilst continuing to work outside of your comfort zone.
