Patrick M BP 255/2

Patrick made a nice lift, actually one he hasn’t hit in quite a while. Breathing is better, control is better and cleaned up many of the little flaws he had. He is on his way to a single at 275.

Recently there was a document posted on the NTF website written by the RAND Corporation regarding the military’s THOR3 program. There were a few comments but not much discussion. Do we really understand how serious the staffing and hiring issues are? This is why NTF was created. The THOR3 performance staff and programs are not […]

When designing an exercise program, on what areas do we typically focus? In school, I was taught to think of; warm up, flexibility, resistance and cardiovascular/respiratory training (The Historical Four). These four areas of focus remain the general recommendations from the ACSM. They have been the recommendations for decades. Actually, these Historic Four areas represent […]
