Breaking The Rules

Its time for a change, people.

Its time to step up and start training the way YOU want to train, the way we were MADE to train.

Its time to stop worrying about all the little so called "rules" of strength and conditioning and start focusing on following a few basic principles and just BUSTING ASS.

If you are not getting stronger, then you're wasting your time. If you add weight to the bar, if you add reps, if you do more work in less time - you are getting stronger.

Its such a simple concept, but often forgotten.

Once upon a time, I was a teenager so focused on my "routine" that I would lose sight on what was really important, on what really mattered.

You know the principles already, you know the templates, the exercises, the set/rep ranges - you know all that. Now apply it and start getting freakin' strong. Maybe you're goals don't revolve around maximal strength - that's fine. Start getting more done in less time - increase your training "density". Try sandbag training, try keg training, do a ton of
Bodyweight Training, flip some heavy tires, drag a heavy sled a bunch of different ways - whatever is you do, don't forget to actually GET stronger in some manner and forget the rules that everyone else is crying over.
