Why New Year’s Fitness Resolutions Fail

While we might all think that January 2019 was the longest year ever, the truth is the new year is only 6 weeks old. If you are like most people, your New Year’s Resolutions included some kind of pledge to “really get in shape THIS year”. So, how’s working out working...

Jordan Peterson Saved My Life

There is a reason this website has been relatively silent for a few years. From the fact that my father died in a car accident in 2016, to disintegrating personal relationships with people I thought would always be there, to several failed business ventures; to call...

Carb Nite vs. Carb Back Loading

This is a question that gets quite often, should I do CarbNite or Carb Backlaoding? And unfortunately, like most things fitness related the answer is “it depends”. What it depends on is YOU, and your current level of fitness and your current goals. As a...

Carb Backloading vs. Renegade Diet

Ok, so you may be wondering how does Carb Backloading compare to the Renegade Diet.  Honestly there are some similarities and some differences.  I have tried them both, and for me personally I prefer the CBL because it seems like more of a lifestyle than a “diet”. The...

The Keys to Exercise Selection for Athletes

It’s interesting how much dogma exists in training.  Despite all the information that is available to us today, there are still many things that we do without even thinking about WHY.  For instance take jogging.  Athletes that participate in predominately anaerobic...

Run Faster Jump Higher Throw Harder

What if I told you there was a particular muscle that controlled not only how fast you run, but how high you jump and how hard you can throw?  If you are an athlete that combination would probably be of interest to you.  Let’s face it, run, jump and throw pretty much...

The Crossfit Model For Mediocrity

Ok, ok I did that thing that writer’s do.  I used a really controversial sounding title to get you to read this.  If you are a crossfitter you are probably already in the middle of mentally drafting a scathing comment about how wrong I am.  Don’t forget your stopwatch...

The Best Workout Supplement

Now that the holidays have come and gone, we make another attempt at starting the new year right.  This is that wonderful time of year where gym owners salivate over the renewed enthusiasm for fitness.  The first 90 days of the year will see fitness centers packed...

The Airing of Grievances Fitness Edition

Another holiday season is upon us.  I don’t know about you, but I am not really sure where 2013 went.  This year, as they are want to do, just seemed to fly by.  And just like the many years that proceeded it there were some high points and some low points.  We all...

Gifts for Strength Athletes

With only a few shopping days before Christmas it is crunch time for many of you last minute shoppers.   I have to admit before the advent of the internet I was a Christmas Eve buyer myself.  I would do my shopping throughout the year so I knew what I was getting. ...

The Theory Behind Wendler 531

When it comes to training theory, the Wendler 531 program is very simple. The goal of the program is to get past all the hype, and B.S. To cut out all the crap, and do what works. The funny things is, despite all the “research”, the same basic exercises that worked 50 years ago…still work. The problem for the fitness industry is that it is very difficult to “sell” hard work. No one wants to hear that it is going to be difficult, and going to require consistent effort. Everyone wants the quick “8 weeks to greatness” fix.

The Basic’s of the Wendler 531 Program

  1. Use Big Basic Movements
  2. Start Out Lighter Than You Should
  3. Make Slow Steady Progress
  4. Kick Ass and Have Fun

That’s pretty much it. It seems so simple when you think about it, and honestly it should be. Do you really think you need a degree in biomechanics to figure out that hard work produces results over the long haul.

” Don’t fall for that crap that people are peddling on the message boards, in magazines or on TV. Get your shit in order, and get your training in order. Start kicking ass, and take out the crap that doesn’t matter. ” –Jim Wendler

As subtle as always, Jim gets straight to the point. And that is what the Wendler 531 program does to. It cuts to the chase, to what’s important. Do you care more about the hype of a shiny new training program, or are you interested in real world results? The Wendler 531 program focuses on the basics, and pushing them hard. The results people have gotten from this program over the past several years speaks for itself. The fact that he released a 2nd edition reflects that success. In the next post I will reveal what is included in the new 2nd edition.
