Ep 28: Taking High-Level Concepts Within Strength Training

JCF_YT_EP28

We’ve all heard the words “Go big or go home.”

But when it comes to strength training,

Is that all there is?

It’s fulfilling to find yourself stronger than others.

Stronger than you were yesterday.

It’s quite the ego boost when we got all the other fellas to see

That we’re going hard on the weights

And crushing our strength training like a beast..

But do we really need to outwork everybody?

Or is that your ego talking?

You’ll probably feel “amazing” at the beginning.

But to what expense?

My guest Thomas Lilley is here to break the mold

Of how stepping up your powerlifting can only be achieved with  bigger deadlifts,

And maxing out everyday at the gym.

Thomas is a phenomenal powerlifter.

He’ll teach us how we can reduce our chances of injury,

Train smarter not harder,

How to be a record-breaking powerlifter, and more!

As we dig deeper into the higher-level concepts of strength training

If you’re one of the guys who want to go further into your powerlifting journey,

Or battling with nagging issues from intense training injuries,

This episode is for you.

See you there, legends.

Cheers.
