This morning in the gym we got talking about the quality of training session's and ways in which to ensure you are maintaining the quality over the quantity.

I explained what Charles Poliquin had taught me many years ago about the critical drop off point. Basically, for...

More Isn’t Better

Doing more isn’t always the answer. We have a tendency to think doing more is the best way to progress at anything we are doing. This is true up to a point but there is always a point of diminishing returns.

“Training is efficient if the highest sports...

Recently I tore my adductor and conjoint tendon. Complete tear. Training jiu-jitsu with a mate. 

Now we just got caught in an awkward position as we were transitioning and my groin got stretched and caught under his body weight. I felt the snap immediately and my tendon...

Gem I were fortunate enough to get away for the weekend and it gave me some time to reflect on some things that have happened over the past year. We have actually achieved way more of our goals than I thought we had which is a good thing but one that stood out for me w...

How long would it take you to increase your strength by 29%?

If you are a beginner it would be a lot quicker than an advanced athlete but even then I would say it would take you a month or two. Last week Lochy front squatted 35kg for 6 reps, this week he got 45kg for 6...

Now we didn't start with box squats or quarter squats i...

Many people are afraid strength training at a young age will injure young athletes. I don't find this to be the case if you program properly and stick within some guidelines. The young rugby league players I train are all getting much stronger, increasing their perform...

There are many ways to monitor overtraining but for me the simplest way is to take my morning body weight and monitor that. It is simple, quick, and effective. 


This is something I learnt from Charles Poliquin many years ago and I still use it now. If your body weight...

Bryce came into training last week with a sore quad and it was his squat based day. In his warm ups he was feeling a lot of pain and didn't really want to train and I didn't want him to further injure himself. The below video is of him front squatting 80kg x 3 reps wit...

The above video is of Mani deadlifting 65kg for 5 reps at 54kg body weight. This is a very good effort considering it is only his 7th time deadlifting. He still has plenty of improvement to go with his deadlifting technique but it is coming along really well.
