WATCH: elitefts Core Values — Strength

What is true in the gym is true in life. Everything is about strength and overcoming adversity.

Safe explosive rep training!

Theres an appropriate time and place for everything. When it comes to explosive training, timing and fatigue mean everything. Doing this too soon in a training session without the tissues being adequately warmed up and lubricated can yeild serious injury.Most of the time people like to program explosive exercises with lighter weight in a controlled environment. These are usually machine based and have a high level of stability. Stability is necessary for explosiveness when it comes to hypertrophy training. Any unwanted risk is not needed. Stability is just one half of the explosive component. Tension is the next. High tension with added stability will give you the greatest results when looking to use explosive rep training for hypertrophy.My favorite way to use explosive rep training is intra set explosiveness. After building up a base of fatigue through straight sets, high volume or intensifying techniques you can drop weight, anyway you want, and move to explosive reps. While blood volume and fatigue are both high dropping weight and adding controlled explosive reps is a game changer.Below we used the leg press and added elitefts orange bands around a barbell behind the seat. Me and my training partner Zach both worked up to a moderately heavy set of 10 and then did a strip set of 50 reps. On the last set when the paramaters were right, high blood volume, high fatigue, stable environment, high tension, we took each rep with an explosive mindset to really finish the set.This type of training technique should be used sparingly as it is extremely taxing on both the muscular and nervous system. Absolutely, should only be used 1x in a training session.Train Smart, Train harder. Live,Learn,Pass On

Tip: Where Does Body Fat Go When You Lose It? | T Nation

It's amazing that the real answer is known to so few. After all, those of us in this business spend a really big chunk of time trying to figure out how to defeat fat.

The Problem With Online Rivalries Like Jeremy Buendia Vs Brandon Hendrickson | GI News

Shawn Ray criticizes the recent trend of bodybuilding online beefs. Last week Brandon Hendrickson posted on social media a beef he's been privately having with Jeremy Buendia. This can be added to a long list of online rivalries, or beefs, that have been invading the sport of bodybuilding proper. A few years ago the debate used to be whether or not a bodybuilding rivalry like Kai Greene vs Phil Heath took away from the sport. But at least that was on stage - now we have beefs happening over Instagram. Our very own Shawn Ray took a look at the latest online rivalry story and breaks down his take on the whole concept of online beefs. Do they help the sport make it more exciting? Do they hurt it?

The 5 Most Worthless Exercises of All Time | T Nation

In some CrossFit classes you have the option to "scale down" if you can't do an exercise as prescribed. Let's say you have pull-ups in a WOD. If you can't do pull-ups, instructors normally have you do banded pull-ups. But some people are too weak (or heavy) for those. What do they do then? They put a box below the pull-up bar. The person stands on the box with his or her hands grabbing the pull-up bar. They're instructed to "jump and pull" until their chin is above the bar.
