In order to prevent shoulder tweaks and tears for those who have high-stress occupational work in the frontal plane (like many of the operators I train), traditional "active" shoulder are problematic. They need ...

What is a TACFIT Physique?

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Note the physique. It is not like any other type of athlete. The closest would resemble a gymnast. Although it was originally intended to develop a fighter physique, the nature of high injuries in fighting the "fighting physique" is never truly realized. Look at the shoulder ...

Fail Better. Succeed Intelligently.

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

The exercise protocol "Each Minute on the Minute" lacks progression, as exercise isn't held to the same standard as sport science. You can be awarded a trainer certification (without understanding the fundamental principle of periodization.) This unfortunately leads to trainers administering random workouts to unwitting clients, with outcomes that can't ...

Reactivate before Dinner

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

This evening's WOD @ light intensity: a light session immediately before dinner reactivates sequences of muscles which have begun shutdown.

You’re better off keeping the weight, than losing it through dieting!

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

I experimented with fasting, until I had observed a few thousand people to realize they would have been better off keeping the weight than losing it.

Character gets us to training. Discipline finishes it.

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Character gets us out of bed [for morning training], Commitment moves us into action [to apply our strength and energy judiciously] and Discipline enables us to follow through [to finish evening training with good form.] - paraphrasing Zig Ziglar. You bridge the distance between your dreams and your reality, through ...

6 Steps to not Rebound on your Body Changes

Dieting may change the diameter but it doesn't change the density. You really can clean out the inside, and watch the outside change as well. To get healthy on the inside so that the outside radiates health, here are 6 steps: 1. Add a half portion of grass fed or wild ...

Hey Everybody, He’s an Exercise Expert! - See? Nobody cares.

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

So.... a poster commented on my page, "Listen, I'm an exercise physiologist, a literal 'expert' in exercise. And having my actual degree hung in my office, I can tell you there's no way that you can exercise without grains and sugars. You have to load carbs before, and shove sugar ...
