Before You Squat: Physical and Mental Preparation
Greg Everett | General Training | July 30 2010 | Comments (6)

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......

Weightlifting Program Design Case Study
Greg Everett | Olympic Weightlifting | June 29 2010 | Comments (2)

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 r...... Continue reading

Interview Tips & Tricks There's a few things you should know about interviewers before they show up, or before they call.

The Acid-Alkaline Question
Yael Grauer | Nutrition | April 30 2010 | Comments (4)

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. "T...... Continue reading

Back Training for Weightlifting
Greg Everett | Olympic Weightlifting | February 27 2010 | Comments (2)

Because the classic lifts and common supplemental exercises such as squats and pulls naturally provide a considerable workload for the muscles of the lower and middle back, generally this area will require somewhat less specific training than the anterior and lateral aspects of the torso. For convenience, we can classify core work in terms of body regions, type of muscle activation, and type o...... Continue reading
2009: A Year in Review
Greg Everett | Editorial | December 28 2009 | Comments (6)

My usual practice of blasting out last-minute articles as I suddenly realize the new issue of the PM is due out shortly has been failing me this month. Despite having a number of articles started and notes for a few more, I’ve been wholly unable to make any progress. So instead I’m going to try something new: a Catalyst Athletics retrospective. Those of you who have been around for ...... Continue reading
Percentage-Based Max Effort Black Box - MEBB
Michael Rutherford | General Training | November 28 2009 | Comments (17)

One poor assumption I have made with regards to lecturing on the Max Effort Black box deals with the athlete’s experience with finding the daily max effort. I’m up there babbling about finding that best effort for 5, 3 or 1 on a particular move and then suddenly it hits me—The majority of my audience is lost. I often times get the same tilted head, glazed over look my Airedales g...... Continue reading
Controlling the Tornado: Planning Your Weightlifting Training
Matt Foreman | Olympic Weightlifting | October 28 2009 | Comments (5)

This article will be focused on planning out your training program. And you’re out of your mind if you think I’m going to start with a slogan that you’ve already heard a million times like "Failing to plan is planning to fail." This slogan is a proven truth, but it should be painfully obvious. I shouldn’t have to remind you that planning is important any more than...... Continue reading
Teaching the Olympic Lifts in the CrossFit Group Setting: Part 2
Greg Everett | General Training | September 29 2009 | Comments (12)

Before we continue on this particular adventure, I want to provide some clarification on a few items from the first part of the article. It has been pointed out to me that some of my remarks offended certain individuals, and because this was not my intention, I’m going to take a moment to apologize for any offense that was taken, and to provide my rationale for those remarks. While I may mak...... Continue reading
