No equipment, small space.
Gymchat 278 – TBAWe’re still finalising the details for this week’s discussion. I’ll post them on the blog (and X, Facebook etc) shortly. In the meantime, take a look at some of the previous episodes of the show – (there’s an example below, and a full list here). And if you’ve got any questions or comments on the various topics discussed, we’d love to hear them. Just leave a note below the video.
Craig Bongelli, together with Personal Trainers (and Strength Athletes) Jen Mulhall and Josh Hewett. Great conversation. And if you missed it the first time (or just want to go over a particular point again), check out the full video : https://straighttothebar.com/2014/05/21/video_for_gymchat_247_-_the_power_of_visualization_jen_mulhall/ .
NB : If you’d like to take part in a future episode – either as an interviewee, or as a guest host – just drop us a line. Love hearing how everyone else trains.
Checking Out : LIGHTNING F35 (Folding Power Rack)Interesting idea. The LIGHTNING F35 is a small, foldable power rack with the usual array of features. Ideal for the garage home gym, when the garage is still used to house the car. As for the device itself :
The LIGHTNING F35.
Ever Tried Kettlebells?
If you've seen people using them but never taken the plunge yourself, here are the ones I use personally. You can also pick up a book/DVD/course if you want to learn how to put them to work.
Tip of the Week : Learn How to Sleep Correctly (Dr Matthew Walker)Each week we publish a number of tips and techniques via X (Formerly Twitter), the blog; and the newsletter. Wherever you are, there’s always a way to improve what you’re doing.
We’ve certainly discussed sleep – my favourite form of recovery – many times over the years, and this is a great summary of the basics. Nice one.
ExerciseFeat Of The Week : Planche Push-Ups
Planche push-ups – very impressive.
Incidentally, if you’d like to get in touch regarding this or any other aspect of strength, you can contact me here. Look forward to hearing from you.
