Gymchat 233 - The Basics of Getting STRONG (Tyler Thor Jefferis)

Ready for some serious strength?


A deceptively simple question - how do you become seriously strong? Through competitions, equipment, training techniques - or a bit of each?

This week we'll be discussing this area in detail, explaining exactly how to go from being 'about as strong as the people around me' to 'the strongest person I know'. Taking us through the entire process is Powerlifter Tyler Thor Jefferis together with Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett. Fantastic.

If you've got questions/comments for Tyler or Josh, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat. And if you'd like to point your friends/colleagues to the discussion, just use the 'share' button at the top of that page. The more the merrier.
