Get away from the dumbbells and barbells to add variety to your training. What else is around you to switch up your training? Try grabbing a sand bag and make a list of as many exercises as you can think of. Then pick 5-7 exercises that you can do with confidence and repeat for ten reps each. Track how many times you do each exercise in 15 minutes. Progress by decreasing your rest time between exercises or by increasing time. Check out this clip to get you started.

WOW! What a day. It was great to hang out and learn from Dana, Coach Patel, Dr. Nickelston, Nutritionist Jenna, and the numerous other presenters and attendees. Sacred Heart University was a great location and a fabulous host for the conference. Talking shop with those in the trenches has only helped encourage me to expand what STT has done over the past year already. It is always nice to hear back from STT nation and listen to what is needed to help give back to the profession. I hope to be invited back to present at the ML Strength Conference in the future. Heading to dinner with the presenters and some VIP’s now. Then getting ready to get home early tomorrow morning. A quick weekend, but a worthwhile experience without question. I am always honored to be asked to present and share to tips and insights. Thank you to ML Strength and to those who attended, sponsored, and put the amazing event together.
Coach Taylor is presenting at the Major League Strength Conference tomorrow and is heading to Connecticut today. Looking forward to presenting with Dana Cavalea from the New York Yankees as well as the many other presenters. Catching a mid-day flight, a short car ride to Sacred Heart University, and then meetings through the evening to catch up on new tips and techniques to bring back to STT nation. I will follow up tomorrow with some updates from the event. Check out twitter too in case something pops up that is needed to be shared.

Far too often I am asked about this “new” diet. I have honed in to become ready for these questions about two days after we put the current magazine in the cardio area. More often than not the conversations start with “What do you think?” I simply ask “Have you eaten breakfast?” When the answer is “NO”, then I am certain we need to start from the beginning. Stick to recommending drinking lots of water and using a multivitamin daily. If you can keep that routine up, then we’ll teach you about healthy nutrition choices before even discussing next month’s new diet.
