Episode # 106: Dr. Ken Leistner Inspiration, Part II



What rules?

F**K the rules!

This training session was inspired by Dr. Ken Leistner. Dr. Ken was a TRUE pioneer in the field of strength & conditioning. 

Having one day a week of NO Rules Training is great for combat athletes and men who are Training for Life; this can be family men or men who are in first responder careers and of course our military.

The NO Rules Training Manual is inside The Underground Strength Academy.

Sometimes you gotta throw good ol' science out the window and go with your gut instincts.

For me, that means heavy training, having Fun, and Heavy training 🙂

At 33 years young, after 20 years in the iron game, I am STILL learning and man do I feel like there are times when I have just started in te iron game because of how much I learn.

In the Fall of 2007 I was gifted a bag of VHS tapes and old 3 ring binders of Brooks Kubik's DINO TRAINING FILES. 

Below are a few photos from the 3 ring binders I was gifted!

    I hear ya! Train hard and heavy but listen to your body is the way to go.
    Nice work on the close grip bench!

    One thought: use some pins in that power rack whenever you do benching of any sort. Especially without spotters and when no one is around. That way you can always drop the bar and get out from under it. Hate to see you get stuck under a bar!

    Every year almost, somebody dies while benching by getting pinned by the weight. I almost did years ago but my brothers saw me and grabbed the bar. Sure, you can dump it, but when you are tired and that weight pins you , you WILL not think too clearly. It can slowly suffocate a person. Don’t want to see your son without his dad.

    Anyway, that’s just my concern. Love your vid’s! Thanks for sharing,
