What’s the best way to train for strength?
How should you prioritize your training to squat, pull and press more weight? And more importantly, are there any methods you can avoid or skip altogether to save time and effort?
The truth might surprise you, especially early on in your fitness journey.
Every lifter must spend countless hours stacking reps with heavy barbells. There’s just no other way to build strength skill. But paradoxically, that’s also the all-too common trap for new athletes.
There is a lure to skip the small, isolating, “body-building” style movements that just don’t seem functional. This is a mistake you cannot afford to make.
This week on Barbell Shrugged we talk about the art of the pump, and why making room for more curls, extensions and raises might be just what you need to both boost your performance and longevity in strength training.
Enjoy the show, and get ready to feel the burn.
