Aerobic Development for Strength Athletes

0

Steady state aerobic training. It’s kind of the red-headed step child of the fitness realm. In the past few years aerobic work, or “cardio”, has been vilified due to misconstrued understanding of research and the rising trend of “HIIT” (high intensity interval training) and other gut-busting activities designed to better condition you.  Who wants to spend 30 minutes sucking wind […]

What’s Missing From Your Softball Workout?

0

I’ve seen it many times: A high school softball player has the best intentions to increase speed, power, strength and injury resilience, but an ill-designed training program derails those plans. Softball workouts often fail to build actual strength, develop proper movement skills, and provide an effective warm-up. Here are three key elements of effective softball workouts, with recommended exercises.. >>KEEP […]

3 Keys to a Solid Squat Setup

0

  The Squat is without a doubt one of the most beneficial movements you can perform. For improving athletic performance, promoting muscle gain and increasing overall strength—plus the abundance of positive hormonal adaptations that result from squatting heavy with good form—you’d be hard pressed to find a movement that delivers more bang for its buck. Unfortunately, most people sacrifice performance […]

The true driving force behind any health endeavor and the ability to succeed at living a sustainably fit lifestyle is the mindset in which you approach your journey.

Most women are totally unaware that harnessing their strength can earn them the lean, vibrant bodies they desire and an indestructible mental fortitude that will benefit them far beyond the gym. The idea that men and women should train differently is pretty preposterous, but women unquestionably approach exercise with different cultural, sociological and psychological motivations. Most women have been lead […]

Life Hack: How To Shovel Without Injury

0

In respect to one of the forecasts of impending blizzard doom a couple weeks ago, I posted in our private Hurst Strength Facebook group that I better not hear of any unnecessarily sore or hurt lower backs after shoveling.  Although I said it in a playful context, I was more so serious.

Do you want the real secret about long-term fat loss and becoming your best self? It can’t be sold by a company, nor does it have a brand name or come in a bottle and it doesn’t involve any wagon to fall off of.

I like to periodically “spotlight” Hurst Strength clients who have put in a lot of hard work with their workouts, nutrition and overall lifestyles in and outside of the gym.  I do this primarily because they deserve the recognition and I’m grateful to be a part of their journeys, but I also spotlight in hopes of motivating others who may […]

Sayonara Diets! Online Nutrition Coaching Starting June 30th!

0

Diets SUCK. No, really, they literally suck the life out of you. They leave you lifeless, drained and hungry and make you feel like a total failure if you don’t follow them perfectly.  On top of that, the “diet” industry is built upon constantly making you feel like you’re not enough and driving you deep into self-loathing so that you’ll […]
