General Fitness at MVP

So, you have been to the large commercial gyms in the neighborhood and something just isn’t right. Not only do you feel like an ant milling around in an ant farm, but the huge meathead in the corner has been grunting out curls for the last hour.

The proof is in the pudding. “Pudding” in this case is what keeps giggling after you stop moving. Not sure what I mean? Here is ...

As a Strength and Conditioning Coach I have now implemented a lot of my background knowledge to my triathlon training program. Being that triathlon training requires high volume, high intensity efforts ...

Exercise of the Month: Ground Based Jammer Press

The independent arms of the jammer allow for isolating each arm as the power is transferred to the end range of the motion. This will help strengthen any weakness or imbalances in the power distribution through the upper extremities. This is ...
