advanced muscle building techniques

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

Within the strength and conditioning field there are a number of common problem areas that thwart development. This crosses from virtually every sport, to strength-athletes, bodybuilders and everyday exercise enthusiasts who are trying to say, lose weight and live a better quality of life. These common faults, such as hip flexibility and poor postural alignment, create a multitude of problems and ultimately leave an individual short of their goals.

One of the most overlooked concerns is eccentric strength which has seen its influence in most training problems reduced inadvertently given the use of weight machines. Even as an advocate of free weights, this is not to say weight machines are ineffective but when not used properly as they typically are, will not infer significant stimuli upon lowering a weight.

your action plan to build muscle

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

Achieving your exercise goals whether they are focused upon general fitness, bodybuilding, strength development or training for sport is a careful mix of proper planning and compliance. While most will make exercise sound very complicated it is in-fact very simple and merely a matter of following a properly balanced exercise regime along with healthy diet and a supplementation plan.

Despite the many “complicated” training ideas or “quick-fix” solutions, for the majority the task it is straight-forward and merely a matter of patience and compliance. The work will be challenging but with the correct plan it is simply a matter of time until you reach your objectives.

Within strength training most regimes fall short of six major concerns:

building work threshold to improve recovery

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

Many of the weaknesses of modern sport training oddly started with the modernization and business growth of health and fitness industry. Long before “the fitness revolution”, athletic conditioning consisted of basic training measures and quite often involved work associated with manual labour or basic military tests. It might prove to be an unpopular statement but some of the most effective “training” comes well out of the weight-room and involves general callisthenics, climbing rope, chopping wood, breaking up stone with a sledgehammer and bailing hay, to name a few of once common activities.

The truth is that general level of athleticism and work threshold in sport today is at deplorable levels. “Basic” athletic movements such climbing rope or chopping wood are considered challenging but were nothing more than standard faire for an early adolescent only a few generations back or in less developed countries today. In its place there has been an intense specialization of weight room work with a misguided training focus to go along with a “soft” psyche.

work threshold for combative athlete

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

As you walk into a room of young athletes, their eyes look up to and while you may have forgot much of those moments in your own youth it becomes very clear they are waiting for you to lead. With your words and action you have the ability to shape the young minds into leaders of tomorrow and for that reason alone you have a great responsibility to provide not what they want to hear but what they need to know.

This is the role of a true leader, where there are no discussions of concessions of value but instead an individual who understands the route to success is not paved or a popularity contest.
