It was another good week at Total Health Performance with many people achieving great results. We had people hitting PB's and others reaching goals of 30kg of body weight lost. One thing that stuck out for me though was Darcy deadlifting 115kg for 3 reps. She is still...

Andrew Thornton's first deadlift session with a straight bar.

We have been progressing Andrew along by doing a lot of general preparation work for the VMO, hamstrings, and lower back over the past few months. Due to this his knee pain that was quite severe has subsided...

Just a few days ago I shared an article about Toby progressing well with the 5,4,3,2,1 method and showed him deadlifting 180kg for a single. This post is an update from that as he was able to hit 200kg for single just a couple of days later and set himself a new PB. It...

In this phase of training I have been using the 5,4,3,2,1 method with Toby and he is responding very well to it. It is a method that teaches your body how to perform lower reps more efficiently. Toby is good at repeating efforts but would struggle to recruit the higher...

The above video is of Lochlann Davies deadlifting 75kg for 4 reps at 56kg body weight. 

If you want to progress in rugby league, or anything in life for that matter, you have to take responsibility for your development. That is exactly what Locky has done and many other...

When training Marcus I have noticed that his grip strength when deadlifting was quite good but on chins and hanging garhammer raises his grip was really weak. I wasn't sure why this was the case but thought it had something to do with weak external rotators of the shou...

Work hard consistently and you will exceed expectations, your own, and other people's.

We have had two good examples of this over the past two weeks. Marcus done some strength testing with his Norths team and hit some decent numbers. He got 120kg for 3 in the back squat...
