Resistance Band Training

Resistance bands have been around for many years for fitness & rehabilitation purposes. Resistance band exercises are great  for 
beginners but also works for the more experienced strength trainers.

They are versatile because the resistance can be adjusted. They're usually separated by band thickness (small, med, large). For example, If you want a harder workout you'll use a thicker(large) band and if you want an easier workout you'll use a thinner/lighter(small) band.

Shatteryour plateau


Are you looking to increase your strength or break through a plateau?   Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 system is the workout routine for you!    I hit a point in my workout routine where I not only wanted to increase my strength but I realized that I hit another plateau.

At this point my max weight for deadlifts was 225lbs but I knew in order to achieve this goal I'd have to build up the adequate amount of strength.  Now I needed a strategy!

The Benefits of High Intensity Interval Training

My body hit a plateau!

No weights? No problem!

  Partner workouts are fun and challenging and you don’t need a gym or weights.  All you need is space, your body weight and your partners body weight (added weights are optional). Working out with a partner pushes you to work harder than you would if you were working out alone. There’s no giving up when you have someone else relying on you to make it through a workout.   Below I have listed (with pictures) a few partner workouts that are…
