Gymchat 226 - Advances in Strength & Power Development (Craig Bongelli)

Ready to Become Seriously Strong?


A deceptively simple question : How do you go from the 'strongest person in the gym' to 'strongest in the area'? In short, how do you become seriously powerful?

Tackling this - from both a strength athletics and a power-hungry gym rat perspective - is competitive Strongman and Strength Coach Craig Bongelli, joined by Strongman and Personal Trainer Josh Hewett. If you've got questions for Craig or Josh, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat (during the discussion itself). Details below.

Gymchat 239 - How to Get HUGE! (Craig Bongelli).

Whether it's for strength, competition or aesthetics, how do you go about packing on a serious amount of muscle mass? Is it just a matter of 'eating everything in sight' and training hard?

Gymchat 213 (Roundtable) - How to get BIGGER and STRONGER.Josh Hewett.In the Gymchat Interview this week we focussed on hypertrophy, talking to Personal Trainer Conor Kelly. If packing on a bit of muscle is one of your goals, go back and watch that one. Great discussion. This time Josh will be hosting a roundtable discussion talking about training for both size and strength. How to start, the right way to tackle both at once, and a whole lot more. Joining him will be Suneet Sebastian, Paul Marsland, Kevin Hart and Jason Paris. Fantastic.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar - I love hearing how other people are training - get in touch. If you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
