PODCAST EPISODE #304: PROGRAMMING PRINCIPLES

Aug 17, 2022
 

SUBSCRIBE

 

Episode 304 was inspired by one of our most often asked questions: “How can I sell or do long-term periodization when I have clients who are only buying 12-week blocks?” Over the next hour, we’re breaking down exactly how to unlock the doors to success for your clients more quickly and why you want to be the coach who’s a locksmith, not just a coach with a key. If you enjoyed this episode, make sure to check out the Programming Course with James Thayer and James Macintosh kicking off in September. Just like this podcast episode, this course will have a BIG impact on coaches and trainers who want to start thinking and adapting how they approach programming.

OPTIMIZING MOVEMENTS FOR HYPERTROPHY

Aug 12, 2022

By Abdurahmaan Saloojee

Abdurahmaan is a Pre-Script coach from Ottawa who loves reading, traveling, and training.
 

One consideration when executing movements, specifically externally stabilized movements for muscle hypertrophy, is where the origin and insertion start and end. You’d think that machines that are externally stabilized are hard to get wrong, but you’d be surprised – at almost every gym you can find someone who is trying to full stack the machine and doing themselves more harm than good.  

One way to get as much out of movements as possible is to consider your general positional awareness when executing a movement and maximizing that as much as possible. This starts with having a fundamental understanding of muscle anatomy. It is difficult to get the most out of a movement if you don’t know exactly where muscles originate and insert (let alone if you don’t know the muscles you are trying to work). This doesn’t need to as...

Your network is your net worth, or something like that. 

This is parroted in many industries, but for the most part it is incredibly relevant to business.
