Some big questions this week!
In this episode of the Q&A I’m asked…
- What is better for the longterm progression and why? MAS or Main Conditioning from Heavy Hitters?
- Warm-up protocols to stimulate greater neural drive?
- Training at home and having trouble with loading leg exercises as I can’t squat due to hip/ankle mobility putting pressure on my lower back…What exercises would most increase resistance without putting too much pressure on my back?
- Do you progress Landmine twists by adding weight or making a longer lever by extending your elbows? Is there an “optimal” position and stance?
- Best stretches for a tight psoas?
- Favourite exercises to use with an agility ladder?
- Are there particular standards you try to get to for each movement (Squat, hinge, horizontal push/pull, vert push/pull, etc.) and quality (strength, power speed, various, energy systems, etc.), or just keep going on improving forever?
- Don, I wanted to know from your experience, what is the best way to gain muscle mass with bodyweight exercises without losing performance?
All those links will take you to the relevant section of the YouTube video version of the Q&A if you want to jump straight to a point of interest.
And you’ll find related links to topics mentioned in this episode in the “Further Resources” section below.
If you’re on a mobile device and a vertical IGTV version is your preferred option…
