Martin Rooney and I talk about what life is like as a Strength Coach and give you a preview of what's about to go down with "The Human Crane".
Check the video and pay attention....
When I saw Martin box squat 405 for the easy reps it made me re-think and realize the carry over his training has towards his absolute strength.
I've seen Martin Bench Press 315 for a solid 6 reps and he weighs around 200 lbs, lean and mean.
The regular practice of sprints and bodyweight training have had a tremendous carry over to his strength, and these are NOT just my observations only. Martin told me that from doing all his push up variations and other challenging bodyweight movements so often they have a tremendous carry over to his powerlifting.
I have experienced the same effect so NEVER neglect the importance of attacking and mastering the challenging bodyweight exercises.
Lead from the FRONT or get the Hell out of the Way!
