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.

Let me tell you how you can cross that finish line full throttle and get most out of your exercises.  (more…)

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…)

The Guide To Learn The Pistol Squat

Can you learn how to do remarkable things?

Can you learn the skills that will make people say: “Wauw, that’s impossible for me!”?

You might think some people are born to be remarkable.

You either have a genetic advantage or you don’t.

 

Lazar. Dusan. Hannibal for King have the right genes. People like Frank Medrano, Ido Portal, Al Kavadlo. Brandon Meyers has them too, and Adam Raw, and Hit Richards.

The list of extraordinary people goes on and on.

But ordinary people like you and me?

 

Not too long ago, I used to think I was just too much of an average Joe to even scratch the surface of what those people were doing.

Too weak. Too old. Too little. Too much of anything I could think of.

Thinking about doing remarkable stuff would make me chuckle too.

I could never do that impossible stuff!

 

If the same belief keeps crossing your mind. Let me tell you that your thinking is flawed. 

It’s not impossible. If it were, why are so many people doing it?

They are the living proof that you can learn what they are doing. Even you can do the ‘extraordinary’.

Let me tell you how.  (more…)

How To Easily Track Your Caloric State To Lose Or Gain Weight

Let’s start with a simple question…

How exactly are you planning to lose weight or build muscle?

Because that’s the end goal, right?

 

You don’t just want to feel better. You also want to look better.

You aren’t making sweat angels on a daily basis, huffing and puffing, because you don’t want to lose those extra layers of fat.

You aren’t consistently following the beginner routines, because you need something to waste your time on.

 

Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but somewhere in the future, all that hard work had better pay off.

Except what if you will still just be floating around helplessly in the sea of the unknown?

I mean what if your entire understanding of losing weight is wrong?

What if you don’t need more cardio? More HIIT? More rope jumping?

 

It would be a tragedy if you’d keep wasting your time, never possessing even the slightest chance of losing fat or gaining a single gram of muscle.

And yet I believe that’s precisely what’s happening. Not just to you, but to most people who call themselves hardgainers or naturally big boned.

Allow me to explain what you need to know. (more…)

How To Grease The Groove For More Repetitions

Have you ever wondered why your pull ups don’t seem to improve?

You religiously follow the routines. And you are doing the exercises almost daily.

But…

 

You look at your rep count and scratch your head.

It’s okey, but you’d like to do better.

Should you do more pull ups or chin ups?

 

So you tinker around a bit more, change up your training plan.

And before you know it you reach the 100 rep mark.

It’s the dream, and everywhere you turn online, someone will tell you it happened.

It makes you wonder though, why are you struggling so much?

 

And if it’s that easy why isn’t everyone that strong?

It’s not easy, it never is.

But with this method you can use your biggest engine -the nervous system- to your advantage.
