Strength Coach Mike Boyle, who was just hired as the Boston Red Sox S&C coach, demonstrates chin-up progressions on the functional trainer and TRX. If you haven’t tried a TRX row with your feet elevated on a box, try it. It’s a great lat builder. Add the weighted vest and really squeeze at the top, and it will blow the barbell bent over row out of the water..
Strength coach extraordinaire Charles Poliquin breaks down the difference between chin-ups and pull-ups, when we should use one over the other, and gives us a great progression to add that first 45lb plate around your waist for a few reps. If chins aren’t part of your back workout, you don’t have a back workout.
Strength coach Charles Poliquin reviews a study where participants dropped an average of 12.4% bodyfat in 6 weeks by sprinting. Overall, they spent just just 3/4 of an hour sprinting. And now you wonder why I always want to go to the track for Spartacus!
