There are many types of strength: explosive, agile, relative, endurance and speed to name a few. So when a client asks me to help them get stronger, I need them to clarify what type(s) of strength they’re referring to. For a particular sport? To rehab from an injury/surgery? To increase muscle mass? One client I have been working with said that he wanted to focus more on his squats, bench press and deadlifts — the three primary movements for powerlifting. These lifts require intense focus and maximum effort. Additionally, we incorporate many functional/core exercises as well as standard lifts you see at a gym. Needless to say, he has made incredible progress, and I couldn’t be more proud of him. The most impressive is his barbell squat. Check out this video from a recent workout.
