Holy. S***. What a whirlwind last couple weeks. Let me re-cap everything that has gone down in the past 4-6 weeks:
- I hosted Brian Carroll and Julia Ladewski for a grand opening to [...]
There are people in life who do things and when you see them do it you think “woah…that’s pretty bad ass”. Then there is Julia Ladewski. Not only is she one of the top ranked female powerlifters in the world, she has also dabbled in both physique AND figure competitions, is a full-time strength coach, [...]
Whew. It has been a crazy 2 months since I last posted. I finally moved in to my new gym, Bayside Barbell. While it took me quicker than I expected, there was still a ton of stress and work that needed to be done. Lot’s of sweat, a stomach flu and some amazing clients and [...]
Training for this meet was a total grind. I was breaking in new equipment, dieting down to 220 lbs and everything seemed to be a constant struggle.

Well, after some travel, some down time and some surfing, I’m finally back to the real world. Bummer to, it was actually becoming fun jet setting around pretending like I didn’t need to work.
Oh well, back to the grind.
First things first, I have not forgotten about the follow article to assistance article I [...]
When it comes to training, whether it’s for an event like my power lifting meet or for a triathlon, football game or water polo game, everyone knows that just being strong and powerful isn’t the end all be all. Yes you can squat, dead lift and bench until the cows come home and odds are [...]
Okay, I might have dated myself with a little Naughty by Nature, but what the hell, it’s my blog.
What exactly is GPP and what purpose does it serve in today’s training world?
GPP stands for General Physical Preparedness. Long winded? Yup. Hard to understand? Not really. Absolutely necessary? You bet your skinny ass it [...]
