When Is The Next Strength Cycle?

When’s the next strength cycle?

Everyone has been asking for weeks, what will it consist of, what should we expect.

Its fast approaching, the next strength cycle will start 7/29/19.

The program will focus on Power Cleans, Back Squat, and Strict press.

Movements are great not only for building overall strength, but also for increasing explosive power and athletic potential.

The back squat is one of the most functional movements out there, and one of the basis of building pure strength.

The power clean is a difficult movement to initially learn, but the benefits of the movement far outweigh the frustrations of the initial learning process.

The power clean is outstanding for building explosive power and improving full body coordination.  Improving in both areas will help us to preform better in the gym, on the mat, and in everyday life.

Now in order to make this strength cycle as effective as possible we are going to take the next week as a “prep” time.

We will take an entire class for each movement to go over how to properly preform the movement, you can think of it as a seminar over the back squat and power clean.

This will ONLY be avialble to member of Derby City!

During these mini seminars you will learn and practice the basics of the movements under the watchful eyes of our coaching staff.

Whether you have been preforming squats and power cleans for years or if you have never tried either of these movements before, these classes will be extremely beneficial.

At the conclusion of the cycle, we will all establish new max effort lifts for both movements.

We have had a ton of success in the past with our strength cycles and we cannot wait to see the improvements you all have in the gym and on the mats after this upcoming cycle.

If you have any questions please see myself, Hussey, or any of our coaches and they will be more than happy to help you in any way.

This Is How I Got Big Quads

For me, my gym is more than athletes and members.

I spend more time with these people, than I do anyone else.

Building relationships and memories, as cliché as it sounds, through blood sweat and tears.

Every athlete I train, I can identify their physical identifying trait. 

I would bet if you ask anyone what mine is, it would have to be my smile…..

Yea right!

Legs, Quads, Turkey Drums, call them what you will, my physical identifier is by far my quads.

Any sport I’ve participated in, they’ve always got noticed.  I’d have to call myself a liar if I said I didn’t take advantage to show them off…..I worked hard for them.

But what did I do?  The answer may surprise you…

To me they’re just legs.  They help me move weight from point A to B.  But to some of my athletes at the gym, they’re abnormal quads.

Due to the abnormality, I’m often ask what should they do to get their quads larger.

Short answer…..everyone is going to be different, I sure was.

This video was requested on how I grew my quads, I always took it as a joke when people ask me…

It was never something I’ve really considered anyone would be interested in.
