Strength Lesson

Supplements won’t do ANYTHING if your training, nutrition, and sleep aren’t already on point. Don’t spend your money on supps until you’re training right, eating well, and sleeping sufficiently on a consistent basis.

Strength Lesson

Having trouble driving through your heels during the squat? Try slightly raising your big toes up to maintain a better position for a safer, stronger, more efficient squat.
