What's In the Water?, Yael Grauer
What's In the Water?
Yael Grauer  |  September 23 2010  |  Nutrition
Even if your water supply is amongst the cleanest in the country, it could still be harmful for your health. Yes, you read write. Even if your water source continually meets or exceeds the requirements for both federal regulations and non-enforcable health standards, it could still be filled with prescription drugs and other contaminants. How do water suppliers get away with this? Because many chemical contaminants found in the drinking water are entirely unregulated. “It is certainly p......

The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf: Book Excerpt
Robb Wolf  |  September 12 2010  |  Nutrition
Our good friend Robb Wolf has been kind enough to allow us to run an excerpt from his new book, The Paleo Solution. This book is a story about us. You know, H. Sapiens. It’s also a story of how to optimize our performance, health, and longevity. While combining such monumental plot lines might lead you to believe this is one of those family saga novels that jumps all over in time, don’t worry. This story both starts and ends in the past. However, in order to fully appreciate this st......
The Essence of Time, Joe Kenn
The Essence of Time
Joe Kenn  |  August 31 2010  |  Editorial
In sports, when the word “time” is used in a conversation, most discussion will be focused on an individual’s 40-yard dash, or how fast they can cover 40 yards in a maximal effort sprint. This is usually discussed in seconds, as in, “My running back ran the 40 in 4.37 seconds.” In the structured programming of competitive athletics, the essence of time is a critical point of the planning process for the majority of strength and conditioning coaches across the na......
Preventing Staph Infection, Yael Grauer
Preventing Staph Infection
Yael Grauer  |  August 15 2010  |  General Training
MRSA is a particularly dangerous form of staph. While less virulent strains of the bacteria are thought to exist in close to a quarter of the population, only about 1% of people carry MRSA in their noses and skin. Short for methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aures, MRSA is often fatal and always difficult to treat due to its resistance to antibiotics called beta-lactams (including amoxicillin, penicillin and oxacillin). While most strains of staph are far less dangerous, they can all lea......
The Role of Strength in Weightlifting, Greg Everett
The Role of Strength in Weightlifting
Greg Everett  |  August 1 2010  |  Olympic Weightlifting
While the premise of this article may at first strike readers as odd, considering that weightlifting, despite considerable elements of skill and speed, is very clearly a strength sport, there exist quite a few perspectives regarding the role of strength in the training of weightlifters; or, more accurately, regarding the appropriate degree of emphasis of what might be considered non-specific strength work. The spectrum is represented on one end by Bulgarian-style training, involving little o......
Before You Squat: Physical and Mental Preparation, Greg Everett
Before You Squat: Physical and Mental Preparation
Greg Everett  |  July 30 2010  |  General Training
It struck me the other day while being miserable squatting that for all the talk and writing about how to squat, where to put the bar, how to program squats, there's a lack of talk on what to do before you squat. Maybe that's because I'm the only one who thinks it's worth talking about, but hopefully that's not the case. Step one is to be prepared physically for your squats. This can apply to programming, i.e. don't be trying to do weights, reps, and sets you shouldn't be, but in this cas......
Weightlifting Program Design Case Study, Greg Everett
Weightlifting Program Design Case Study
Greg Everett  |  June 29 2010  |  Olympic Weightlifting
Program design is one of those topics that is overwhelming both to read and write about. Most literature is necessarily nebulous and vague, and individuals interested in learning more often find themselves inundated with a collection of concepts that fail to fit together easily than with a set of practical rules they can implement. So instead of talking about ideas in this article, I want to run through the process of actually designing a real program and discuss the rationale for various de......
In Your Corner: Marketing, Media and PR for MMA Fighters and Managers (Book Excerpt), Yael Grauer
In Your Corner: Marketing, Media and PR for MMA Fighters and Managers (Book Excerpt)
Yael Grauer  |  May 29 2010  |  Editorial
The following is excerpted from In Your Corner: Marketing, Media and PR for MMA Fighters and Managers by Yael Grauer and Brant DeLorenzo. Interview Tips & Tricks There's a few things you should know about interviewers before they show up, or before they call. If they are writing for a website, they are usually either not getting paid at all or not getting paid very much. Although they may be incredibly polite and professional, most MMA writers are primarily fans. Being respectful to......
The Acid-Alkaline Question, Yael Grauer
The Acid-Alkaline Question
Yael Grauer  |  April 30 2010  |  Nutrition
When I was still in high school, I found myself cooking food at a really bizarre dinner party. One of my friends happened to be renting a room from a macrobiotic guru in town, and all of the macroneurotics (as they called themselves) would show up to cook and eat strange rice variations and weird vegetables. The first thing I remember is getting yelled at for rinsing veggies in warm water. "This is supposed to be a raw salad," someone scolded, "and you're cooking it." I also ......

Championship Weightlifting by Tommy Kono: Book Excerpt
Tommy Kono  |  March 31 2010  |  Olympic Weightlifting
We were fortunate enough to get a preview from Tommy Kono of his upcoming second book, expected out later this year. As the following article explains, this new book will delve into the mental game of weightlifting—lessons that can surely be applied to any sport. Kono was one of the greatest weightlifters in the sport, and his insights are invaluable. —Greg Everett I won two Olympic gold medals, one silver, was eight consecutive years World Champion, set 26 world records sprea......
