John M. has become so proficient at weightlifting….so eonomical in movement, that he can now lift the bar with no hands! No, this is not trick photography and no one is holding the barbell off camera. AMAZING!
Longer Isn’t Always Better-In Training, That Is “This study has a few implications for athletes. A twenty-week block of similar training doesn’t seem to perform any better than a twelve-week block when it comes to VO2 max, so a longer training camp for competition might not always yield better results. However, despite the fact that certain fitness markers may plateau after twelve weeks, other health markers may continue to improve through week twenty. If your goal is cardiorespiratory performance, it might be time to change things up after three months of the same type of training.”–Doug Dupont for Breaking Muscle
