Afternoon vs. Morning Workouts

“Hey Logan, I notice you mentioned that best strength tends to occur in the afternoon. Is that just something you’ve noticed for yourself anecdotally or is that something you’re saying is true for generally everybody based on some research you’ve come across?” Vince I casually mentioned this benefit of afternoon workouts in a previous post, […]

Yesterday, I talked about how many people do assistance exercises wrong. And that was to do them without rhyme or reason, simply because you think or heard they were a good idea.

What is Mobility?

Mobility. Undoubtedly, you’ve heard this word before. The definition is: “the ability to move or be moved freely and easily.” That’s a pretty good definition…though maybe not defined as clearly as could be useful.

The Benefits of EXTENDED Sleep

Yesterday, we talked a bit about the drawbacks of poor sleep.

Does Lack of Sleep Sap Strength?

Not really, or at least not immediately. A study titled “The acute effects of twenty-four hours of sleep loss on the performance of national-caliber male collegiate weightlifters” stated that: “These data suggest that 24 hours of sleep loss has no adverse effects on weightlifting performance.” Essentially, you’ll be just as strong in max attempt type […]

As I started up back in doing handstand pushups the other day, I noticed something. My right shoulder was not feeling 100%. The truth is I wouldn’t even call it “pain”. That’s too strong of a word. But “niggling” is about right. It means: “cause slight but persistent annoyance, discomfort, or anxiety.” Or the noun-form, […]
