Now, in most cases when you want to get stronger, you're going to look at 1 of 2 things: 1) Starting a proven “cookie cutter” program to reach your specific strength goals 2) Getting a personalized program for your strength goals (I mean, I guess there is technically a 3rd option, which is stalling until you feel so out of shape that guilt consumes you and thrusts you into action, but we'll assume that's not you) And when most of us think of strength, we think of equipment, exercises, sets, reps, workouts, and what have you. Make no mistake: these are all obviously incredibly important. But they're not the only way to help you get stronger.  There are other qualities that can help you to develop more strength as well - I dive into them on this mighty fine podcast episode.

The standard variables that we focus on for programming strength building are: 1) Intensity (amount of weight/level of difficulty of an exercise) 2) Volume (number of reps) 3) Density (amount of work done in a given time) You can look at these as your “main course” variables for strength programming. But just like no meal is complete without a few side dishes, neither is your programming complete without honing in on the nuances that will help you make the most of your meal.

Get my 9-Minute Kettlebell & Bodyweight Challenge FREE here: http://www.9MinuteChallenge.com Someone once asked a famous strength coach “How can I improve my squat?” to which he answered “Squat.” Pretty straight forward. And make no mistake: if you want to get good at squatting, you're going to have to squat. It's just like any other movement — you need to practice it specifically in order to get any good at it. And because the squat is one of the greatest movements for full-body strength (not just lower body strength), it's worth your time to practice it and master it. But there's more to better squatting than JUST squatting alone. On this episode I dish on 3 assistance moves that can help boost your squatting strength seemingly instantly. Keep them in your regular rotation for a few weeks and watch as your squatting strength goes through the roof.

Get my 9-Minute Kettlebell & Bodyweight Challenge FREE here: http://www.9MinuteChallenge.com I'm a big fan of gymnastics-style bodyweight strength training. And while most people view it as basically just insane feats of bodyweight strength, such as iron crosses on rings and planches and what have you, in reality those are only examples of the more high-level strength skills and are not representative of the entire system. Even at very basic levels, gymnastic strength training can help you build tremendous levels of immediately usable strength for everyday use — not to mention hit PRs in your favorite kettlebell lifts. On this episode I dive into 3 badazz gymnastics drills to build up your kettlebell skills.

Let's talk about your matchstick legs and how to muscle them up a bit, shall we? There are two things I am not a big believer in: 1) That Monday should remain International Chest Day 2) That your thighs have to be massive and chafing before you can claim to have reasonably good leg development. Now, as far as #2 goes, that also doesn't mean that I think you should intentionally maintain twig legs. Far from it. You can have great and respectable leg development (not to mention strength and explosive power) without having thighs so big that they sound like a round of applause whenever you run.  This episode will show you how.

Let's fix that. This episode will help get that journey kicked off.

Low reps are far and away a great go-to, but eventually you'll work yourself into a corner and you'll find that your low-rep strength will be hard to use repeatedly if you can't back it up with some higher-rep endurance.  This episode will help you kick off your journey to greater gains in your work capacity and potentially 1-rep max strength as well.

Yes, you need to do some “boring training” based on tried-and-true programs and old, familiar set and rep schemes (ex: 5 sets of 5 reps) in order to get strong, but as your training progresses, you'll likely run into 3 barriers: 1) Plateaus 2) Limited Strength 3) Slower Recovery I talk about how to overcome all of this stuff (and more) in this fine episode

Now, don't get me wrong: consistency is important. And you have to do what you want to get good at, so let's not get that twisted. BUT! You've also got to do movements that will help boost your abilities in the movements you want to get good at — and that means doing some old school drills you may not have tried before.
