Monday Musings

Happy Monday! 

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Like every other Monday, here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts, cruising social media and any other continuing ed.


  1. Most athletes think training hard day after day is the recipe for success. But the real recipe for success is training hard and recovering harder.
  2. We, as a profession, make strength programs way more complicated than they need to be. Power work, push, pull, hinge, squat, carry things, core.
  3. I’ve recently had a couple guys tell me they want to train but not hard because they don’t want to get too big or bulky. For majority of people, that’s not a concern. It takes a lot of time to get to that state. It’s the last thing I would worry about.
  4. Missed a workout? Nail the next one. Had a ‘bad’ meal? Make the next one healthy. Make a rule to never miss twice.
  5. Anyone looking for some cutting edge science to improve their performance that isn’t averaging ~8 hours of sleep should start there.
