Tout dans la vie est une question d'équilibre d'où la nécessité de garder un esprit sain dans un corps sain.


Everything in life is a matter of balance therefore one needs to keep a healthy mind in a healthy body.

For Your Viewing Pleasure

Anyway, moving along, I put together another video compilation for you to kickstart the week with a bang. I said last week I’d limit these posts to 20, but when it came down to it, I just couldn’t do it because there was just too much good stuff. I actually wanted to wait til midweek but the list was just getting too long. I guess that’s a good problem to have, right?
I decided again not to include any of my own videos, but I have uploaded a few new ones so be sure to check out and subscribe to my You Tube page for those.
Also, don’t forget to see this weekend’s Good Reads list. A lot of people probably missed it in the hustle and bustle of the weekend, but it’s got 65 articles of goodness to feed your mind. Between today’s post and that one, they should keep you busy all week.
Barstarrz gone wild. I can’t get enough of this stuff.
Sam Giguere gets after it. This is some really impressive stuff.
Donnell Boucher shows his guys at the Citadel doing a 3 man pull-up. This is freakin cool and the energy is just awesome!
Big boy pressing at Defranco’s Gym. Here 8 out of 12 guys bench press 315 plus 80 lbs of chain for between 1 and 5 reps. I’d say that’s pretty darn strong.
Brett Roy benches 315×13. Now that’s just crazy strength. Wow.
Marianne Kane crushes some deadlifts, dips, and weighted chins. Gotta love this.
Smitty Diesel gives two great tips for a bigger bench. Pay attention to these and put them to use.
Tony Gentilcore discusses box squats vs. squats to a box. Very good info here from Tony.
Max Shank shares his planche progress. Pretty darn impressive if you ask me.
Robert “Coach Dos” Remedios shows some great single leg squat progressions. If you are looking to work up to a full single leg squat, start here.
Michael Keck squats 510×3. Nice and deep on these with good solid form. Great stuff.
Bret Contreras hip thrusts 495 lbs for 3 reps. That’s a strong posterior chain right there.
Kellie Davis and Bret Contreras share a promo video for their Strong Curves training guide to come out this summer. I’m looking forward to this already.
Jake Pudenz squats 500. That’s an awesome milestone and this is a nice looking squat. Congrats!
Jen Grasso shows band single leg reverse hypers. I like the way this looks. This is actually really similar to what I showed a few weeks ago attaching ankle weights to the rear leg of a single leg RDL. I will have to try this one soon. Good stuff.
Keith Williams does a 54 inch reactive box jump. Talk about explosive!
Mike Mahler presses the 88 lb kettelbell for 15 reps. Very strong!
Graham Carpio does a brutal pushup finisher. This is some really impressive work done at the end of a workout, making it even harder.
Elsbeth Vaino shows various things you can with a single leg squat stand. I wrote a little bit about this piece here, and Elsbeth does a good job of showing it’s versatility.
Anthony Donskov talks about managing stress. Really interesting stuff here.
Shyam Soin shows a Pallof press/band walk combo. This is a cool variation off the Pallof press that introduces some hip stability work into the picture.
Hope you enjoyed the list. Please remember to pass it along! Also, which one was your favorite? Let me know below.
Have a great day!
