How To Use Eccentric Training For Faster Progress

It’s the holy grail of calisthenics training.

Highly needed, but rarely used.

I’m talking about eccentric loading.

 

Imagine yourself driving a Formula 1 race car.

Your are speeding over the road, passing your competitors as if they are standing still.

The crowd is going wild at every corner, because you make the unimaginable look easy. Like the next Verstappen.

And then in the final turn, right before you finish in world record time, get 100k in prize money and go into the books of history, you decide to release the gas.

You stop holding the steering wheel and decide that you are finished with the race.

 

That’s what you are doing with your pull ups, chin ups, push ups and all your exercises.

You take your foot off the gas, right before the finish.

It’s a shame, because you are skipping the rewarding part of the race.

How To Improve Your Posture For More Strength & Health

You want it more than anything.

It’s in your waking thoughts. You daydream about it.

And it wakes you up when you sleep.

 

Still, you are afraid to express it, but deep down a crystal clear voice has been yelling in your mind:

“I am going to be stronger than all of you!”

At the background you can’t help but hear the voices of your friends and family, telling that you need to grow up and realise that ‘the time to dream’ has passed.

 

I hate to admit it, but it’s true – you have been with your head in the clouds for so long that you actually aren’t getting the right things done.

I mean your lower back is weak and it only seems to get worse.

You tell yourself it’s because you are getting too old.

Except, you aren’t. You just haven’t been working on your weakest link enough.

This is how you can make EVERYTHING else stronger. (more…)
