one of the benefits of a muscular training exercises include

At every level, it’s the fastest players who win races to loose pucks, create the time and space needed to get quality shots off, and ultimately create the most opportunities. In a game where a fraction of a second can mean the difference between winning and losing, speed separates the elite players from the average ones. Clearly, hockey players must seize every opportunity to improve their speed. The trouble is, there’s a widespread misunderstanding of how to best train for speed. Many players continue to spend valuable training time on “quick feet” drills with cones and ladders, as well as other speed drills they typically lift from a track and field or football training program. This so-called “speed work” is often supplemented with old school bodybuilding or powerlifting routines in the weight room, or worse, no strength training at all. Unfortunately, these common off-ice training practices have little bearing on skating and on-ice performance. Skating is a unique motion that has several very notable differences compared to running. Understanding these differences, as well as considering the impact of the rapid accelerations, decelerations, and direction changes required in hockey are all incredibly important when designing a...


Perhaps most important part of your ski training workout is the Dynamic Warmup as it will help prepare your body for the functional strength ski exercises that follow. The dynamic warmup will also help mprove your mobility and help to overcome any muscle or postural imbalances that you may have, which can help in preventing any injuries. Corrective Exercises – These will help improve common postural and muscular imbalances you may have. For example there are corrective exercises to improve the movement at your hips, which is a common problem as many people have a tendency to move more from their lumbar spine instead of their hips increasing the risk of lower back injury. Mobility Exercises – Mobility exercises will help improve your ability to actively move through a full range of motion which can directly enhance your movement patterns when skiing by helping you to be more efficient, expend less energy and reduce your injury risk. Activation Exercises – These exercises will help turn on any under-active muscles so that when you are performing the functional strength exercises your muscles are more likely to fire in the correct sequence. For example many people are quadriceps dominant and have glutes that are...


Let me show you show you a "fast-as-LIGHTNING" way I discovered to melt excess whale blubber, double your energy levels, get pro-athlete fitness and real world or "useable" strength with easy to do 1 to 5 minute "Mini-Workouts." Who's got time to waste driving to a gym and then doing 45-minutes to an hour of aerobics or cardio when you could be doing short workouts at home that burn the blubber much more effectively? Unfortunately millions of obese people are still overweight due to horribly ignorant fitness and dietary advice given by many certified personal trainers around the United States. Good thing I'm not a certified personal trainer, it allows me to think outside the box and not be brainwashed by the orthodoxy. If you're doing, one and even two-hour long aerobics sessions to lose weight, you're absolutely wasting your time and for many people, actually training your body to keep the fat on much in the same way that yo-yo dieting works. There's a much faster, better and cheaper way to get fit and melt the body butter once and for all. No more gyms, weights or fancy shmancy exercise equipment needed...


...under what crazy ass circumstances would you go out and spend $250,000 for a Lamborghini, knowing full well it has the engine of a Prius underneath the hood? Sounds crazy, right? That’s because it is. Why not just drive down the street to the Lamborghini dealer and buy the real thing; having the best of both worlds—Looks and performance? What would be the point of shelling out the cash if you don’t get to experience the Lamborghini’s true horsepower and performance? Imagine even revving it up next to a Honda Civic. It’d leave you looking like a tool! I don’t know about you, but despite the car looking pretty with all the attention you’ll be getting, I’d be more excited about driving that bad boy and feeling its true power. That’s what truly completes the experience Lifting weights strictly for muscular size and to look good aka bodybuilding is like a guy who loves to build show cars, but never wants to drive them. Even though he puts in every ounce of effort and dedication into making that car look pretty, it will ultimately end up sitting at a garage...

Alberto Gallazzi, bodyguard to heads of state, Hollywood superstars, and fashion icons, proved to be far more than a strong shield. After many years of preparing teams of protection agents to replace him and protect some of the world’s highest profile individuals, he demonstrated that he was a master coach as well. Accompanying me from one nation to the next, in all levels, from special operations units to high security clearance government facilities, he assisted me in sharing TACFIT and Clubbell training around the world. I watched him not only grow as a coach, but integrate his extensive and cross-disciplinary background to develop new approaches to developing strength in all functional angles and necessities. Clubbell 5×5 is more than a shield. It is an intelligently designed weapon for cultivating aggressive muscle mass and expressible power. He will take us as a community in an untapped direction, and will change the industry with his quiet humility. I am very proud to bring you “The Captain” Alberto Gallazzi’s volcanic approach to strength training: Clubbell 5×5! Scott Sonnon, TACFIT Tactical Fitness Founder Creator of the Patented Clubbell RMAX International Chief Operations Officer …to the days when I was...


Sculpted arms, popping shoulders, and bootylicious booties aren't made by working them off - they're built by the age–old art of bodybuilding. The source of my tears are a group of 40 women. Well, plus one: their coach, Kourtney Thomas. This is all her fault, really. I’m crying because I’m watching a flexathon of bursting biceps and big grins; hands sliding over rounder, higher haunches as they describe more booty developing and increasingly defined quads; gleefully celebrating new muscle striations in their shoulders. The new ripples look like 3D tiger stripes. These women are rejoicing because they feel bigger, inside and out. The crew was selected last fall to embark on a special resistance-training endeavor called The Bigness Project. Over the course of the 14-week program, they were to try to pack as much muscle as possible onto their frames during that time. Obviously I’m joking—everyone knows women don’t want to get muscular (or worse, the dreaded “bulky)! But [whispering]: What if that assumption is incorrect? What if some of us really do want to look like we lift? What if we stopped pretending otherwise, and admitted that yes, we WOULD like to...


Since the launch of the Clubbell Athletics (CBA) system, it has become apparent there is a need for a product that can deliver the basic skillset necessary to safely progress the Clubbell Athlete. So many students and coaches have expressed interest in learning to work with the tool, but felt there was no road map available which specifically addressed the demands of beginners. Not everyone has the ability to attend classes/workshops, or work with a coach directly. And while no product can take the place of live coaching, CBA Foundationsâ primary objective is to fortify the 7-Key Components of Clubbell Structure, and to endow the athletes with these attributes. CBA Foundations is a Circular Strength Training® (CST) based system, which utilizes the tri-ring integration approach to training. In essence, each exercise is wrapped in a pre and post âwork-phaseâ recovery period. The mobility drills prime and lubricate the key movers, while the cooldown poses decompress the major muscle groups to restore the tissues back to resting length. Each exercise has a complimentary activation drill to stimulate areas that tend to need reminding so that âcheatingâ with more dominant areas (otherwise know as overcompensation) occurs less often...


I’m not going to pull any punches. You’re going to be angry and shocked by what I’m about to share with you. When you stick to a program by the letter and do everything your trainer tells you, you expect results, right? Well, what if you discovered all your hard work was causing you to be MORE prone to injury, was having ZERO effect on the shape of your butt and was leaving you with LESS strength and power? As the engine for almost every lower body and back movement you make, they deliver raw strength and power… but only when properly activated. It’s like you're sitting behind the wheel of a muscle car. You have all that raw power and strength lying dormant ready for you to unleash... but you don't know how to get past 30. When you discover the right way to unlock your glutes, everything changes. You can put the pedal to the metal on your gains. And you know when you've trained your glutes the right way, as you’re the proud owner of a strong, round, healthy butt. I’ll explain in a moment how you’ve been misinformed about...
