The Value of Assistance Exercises : The Snatch

By |2019-02-06T14:49:48+00:00April 19th, 2016|Categories: Articles|Comments Off on The Value of Assistance Exercises : The Snatch

Nothing in my opinion looks cooler than a big, heavy snatch! Slick, smooth movement that just exudes power. Amongst all that triple extension and dropping down to meet the catch you have to really analyse your weak points on this classical great. Once again this quick blog is just an insight into common assistance exercises [...]

So I have not done any ‘blogging’ in a while and lately I have really looked into ‘Regression’ this is mainly because this is my ‘current state’ I have not fully regressed but I have gone back a little bit. Of course we are all different in every way from Size, shape, weight, height, what [...]

The Value of Assistance Exercises : The Press

By |2019-02-06T14:49:48+00:00April 11th, 2016|Categories: Articles|Comments Off on The Value of Assistance Exercises : The Press

Just like the deadlift there is no where to hide with the strict press. Just like the deadlift there is no eccentric movement to prime and assist the muscles. And just like the deadlift you have to be immensely strong to put up some serious weight. Pressing a big weight overhead forces your entire musculature [...]

The Value of Assistance Exercises : Deadlift

By |2019-02-06T14:49:48+00:00April 6th, 2016|Categories: Articles|Comments Off on The Value of Assistance Exercises : Deadlift

Often debated against the squat as the king of all exercises, the deadlift will build transferable strength like no other. The kind of rate of force production required to pick up a heavy deadlift is quite unlike any other exercise, this is largely due in fact to the lack of the eccentric factor. Eccentric muscle [...]

The Value of Assistance Exercises : Bench Press

By |2019-02-06T14:49:48+00:00April 5th, 2016|Categories: Articles|Comments Off on The Value of Assistance Exercises : Bench Press

Alright if its squats for athletes, then its guaranteed to be bench for the gym rats. The most commonly available equipment in the free weights, the bench press has been slammed in the past for being the dreaded 'non-functional', however pushing is pushing, whether that's horizontal or vertical. The bench press is also a must when looking [...]

The Value of Assistance Exercises : Squat

Probably the number 1 lift the majority of athletes will be seeking to improve is the back squat. Assistance exercises for the squat warrants an entire article of itself, to address every particular weakness in a muscle group that therefor relates to a breakdown in form. Here I'm just going to give an overall broad [...]
