What is the best way to develop aerobic power?

Q:What is the best way to develop aerobic power?A: That is a question that I often get from athletes and fitness enthusiasts. One of the big leaps in ways of thinking when one becomes a trainer is to embrace that there is no best way to develop anything. The statement that there is no best way to develop anything is surprising to many and also in contrast to some scientific studies that shows, for example, that HIIT is the "best" way to train. HIIT is a great example that there is no best way…See More

Break The # 1 Barrier to Success With Olympic Weightlifting – PART II

Today’s blog features Part II of our three part series “Break The # 1 Barrier to Success With Olympic Weightlifting.”

The flexibility needed to properly train with the Olympic Lifts is very similar to the levels of flexibility needed to properly squat, deadlift and overhead press. So even if you don’t plan to have your athletes or clients practice Olympic lifts, these exercises are highly relevant.

And they are not for clients and athletes only. If WE can’t do these exercises, how can we instruct the lifts?

About 7 years ago, I could only go into the correct start position for deadlifts when I was warmed up. I found this to be inconvenient and I upped my stretching. The pelvic rock with tilt is one of the exercises that I do EVERY night just before going to bed and at 43 I have NEVER been more flexible.

Pelvic Rock with Tilt – I consider this the #1 exercise to develop hip flexibility for squats and deadlifts.
