THE HIERARCHY OF GROWTH

Mar 03, 2022

By Jacob Larsen

Beginning with wrestling and soccer, Jake has been immersed in fitness nearly his whole life.  Personal training and studying exercise in college were the natural progression of that passion.  Competing locally in bodybuilding and powerlifting, Jake currently studies exercise at university and does online coaching at Jackalstrength.com.

THE HIERARCHY OF GROWTH

Looking to get stronger?  Bust through a plateau?  Lose weight or gain muscle mass? 

Growth is rarely a linear progression.  Most often we experience a burst of progress followed by a period of stagnation, we seem to be just getting by until the next burst comes along.  This natural process may seem strangely out of our control.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, it seems to come down to luck.

The reality is that there’s no luck to it.  Just like with every high-performance system, success is limited by our ability to find and improve the...

"STRETCHED POSITION" VERSUS "LENGTHENED MUSCLE"

Feb 25, 2022

By Abdurahmaan Saloojee

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

"STRETCHED POSITION" VERSUS "LENGTHENED MUSCLE"

Too often in fitness and specifically exercise selection, the terms “stretched” and “lengthened” are used interchangeably. This is a mistake, in my opinion. Words matter, and how you define them even more so. Let’s differentiate between them:

 

“Stretched” is used to refer to a position in an exercise, when the eccentric is completed and the concentric contraction is about to be initiated. This is completely separate from the anatomical length of a muscle. Let’s look at two different examples to illustrate this. In a preacher curl, at the bottom of the rep when the elbow is almost locked, this is termed the stretched position of the exercise. It is not lengthened in an absolute sense, but it is experiencing the maximal stretch possible within the constraints of that...

SELF EFFICACY

Feb 17, 2022

By Kyle Coogs

Kyle is a strength & conditioning coach residing in Massachusetts. He's spent the past few years working primarily alongside hockey athletes, among others. More recently he had the opportunity to assist with pre-season testing for an NHL organization. He also has some skin in the strength game, having competed in powerlifting for the past 6 years.

Self Efficacy

In October of 2017 while working as a strength and conditioning intern, I had the opportunity to listen to Bob Tewksbury speak to upcoming athletes. Tewksbury is a retired professional pitcher who began working as a Mental Skills Coach within Major League Baseball following his athletic career. I expected most of his discussion points to focus on visualization, positive self-talk, and other common focal points in the sports psychology field. Instead, he recalled conversations with professional athletes and touched on a particular situation that reverberated itself in my mind due to its far reaching...

PODCAST EPISODE #258: PROGRAMMING

Feb 16, 2022
 

SUBSCRIBE

 

Today on RX’D Radio, we go back to the basics of programming. Jiunta and Shallow go over the framework of how they started programming and the things people tend to get away from. The simple sophisticated way usually works the best. Shallow brings in a great comparison to booking an Airbnb, once you start selecting criteria for a client you usually end up with a small selection of exercises that are perfect for them.

CUEING - A DIMINISHING ART

Feb 10, 2022

By Jeff Anderson

Jeff Anderson is a Strength and conditioning coach currently based out of Vancouver, BC, Canada. Having been a personal trainer for 7+ years and working with a huge breadth of gen. pop., rehab, youth and professional athletes. Currently, Jeff is interning at Simon Fraser University as a S&C coach and working as a trainer online, and in person with general clients and competitive powerlifters.

Cueing - A Diminishing Art

Giving a cue to a client or athlete can be a huge performance enhancer to seeing results in their training. What is unfortunate is the presence of the lost art and diminishing skill, or lack thereof, for trainers and coaches to cue their clients correctly and effectively.

In the beginning as a trainer/coach, when learning how to teach people to exercise, we usually fall back onto our own experiences, teachers and mentors who help us along the way of teaching variations of exercises and execution. What is not discussed however is why. Why is it...

PRIOTIZIING STABILITY BY JAMES THAYER

Feb 04, 2022

James is an Assistant Director of Fitness and Wellness, educator, presenter and Pre-Script Coach. He believes the best approach to learning is to engage, educate and empower individuals and communities. James utilizes coaching, programming, performance and movement proficiency to set a standard for conversation to application.

Prioritizing Stability

Stability is the linchpin between mobility and strength for force transference. An inability to resist forces acting on the body creates force leakage (compensation patterns) instead of a direct path of force into the movement. When stability is the limiting factor to exercise execution or duration, utilizing the two tenants of stability creates a seamless transition of regression for the long-term goal of sustainable progression.

The two tenants of stability are:

1.        Deviate the Center of Mass (CM)

2.        Reduce/Expand the Base of Support

These concepts create a roadmap on how to best...
