My friends, today is Halloween. We’re gonna have an impromptu picture contest, so post your costume pictures to the Facebook, TwitterInstagram, or the comments here. If the costume is 70′s Big-ish, it’ll help. The winner will get a 70′s Big t-shirt of their choice. If you’re not dressing up, then at the very least you can slap together something like Chris did a few years ago:

Recap: On Monday I addressed a question about “Reverse Dieting“, and it led to a simple discussion on basic nutrition philosophy. Chalk Talk #9 briefly showed one armed farmer’s walks and how they can strengthen the quadratus lumborum muscle.

Here’s Misha Koklyaev, one of the most impressive strength athletes of all time, doing one of his trademark ladders. This one is a deadlift ladder to 360kg (792 pounds) and back down.

Misha performs at a world level in powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting, and strongman. What sport would you prefer to shine in? What sports have you competed in?

Earlier this week I wrote an article, “On Drugs and Supplements” that explains a general philosophy where you focus on the fundamentals of health, nutrition, programming, or training before putting weird things in your body (phrasing).

Consultations Are Back

Many of you have asked, and you shall receive. The 70′s Big Team — consisting of Justin, AC, Mike, Chris, and Brent —  is now available to give programming consultations. All of us have an expertise in general strength and conditioning, but a few of us have experience with a given athletic endeavor. Everyone has competed in a national lifting event, some in international competition, everyone has handled lifters in numerous meets, and Justin, Chris, and AC all have coached in a collegiate S&C facility. Some specialties include:

Justin – military/SOF, CrossFit, mobility, collegiate sports, Olympic weightlifting
Chris – powerlifting, team sports (football, rugby, basketball, etc.)
Brent – Olympic weightlifting, mobility
AC – powerlifting, football (including professional players), collegiate sports
Batt – strongman, powerlifting

For more about us, see the Bios page. If you’re interested in a consultation, send an e-mail to 70sBigConsult@gmail.com and include the type of consultation you want, if you have a coach preference, and what your goal is.

Weekend Topic

Foles was asked that question on the Mike and Mike radio show on Wednesday morning, and I thought it was interesting.

What is the most important thing you’ve learned about training?

I haven’t had much computer access lately, but I’m now around to answer questions. If I missed your question in the past week or so, then drop it in the comments.

Finally, a party worth voting for.

 

 

 

I’ve had some things get in the way of eating and training lately. What are the major barriers that prevent quality training in your life?

Recap: I posted a 3x/week Olympic weightlifting and strength training template to answer a question from Twitter. Otherwise, it’s kind of a slow week; things will rev back up late next week.

This video is pretty entertaining:
