  • Is great to see how we are going from using just one style of training, to using the style of trsining that is best for each individual.

    Thanks for sharing this 🙂

  • Question here!:

    Are Weight Lifting shoes a MUST??!

    I understand the need and use for them for stability and thus when your going into competition or training for competition. I understand if your training heavy or trying to go for a PR.

    I understand the need for it. But is there any truth to the idea that you should be able to do the movements of a snatch, squat or C&J without the use of an elevated heel?

    Your input(s) on the subject would be valuable. Thanks!

  • As a newbie I’ve actually worked hard to be somewhat close minded. I started by picking a program and sticking with it, I wouldn’t allow myself to look at anything else for a while because I know how overwhelmed I get with a ton of new information.

    Once I completed my first program I slowly started to allow myself to explore some more. It can definitely be overwhelming to see all of the different exercises or workouts you ‘should’ be doing. I’m doing Wendler’s now so I can incorporate a variety of accessory exercises and I can feel that old overwhelmed feeling sneaking in. Might be time to stick to some basics, like core work, for a while.
