All Things Strength

HELPING YOU GET STRONGER SINCE 2004

Gymchat 226 – Advances in Strength & Power Development (Craig Bongelli)
Written By : Scott Bird

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.
