Thanks again to everyone who watched and sent in questions for the discussion Gymchat 226 – Advances in Strength & Power Development [with Strongman and Strength Coach Craig Bongelli and Personal Trainer Josh Hewett] – much appreciated. If you haven’t seen it yet (or simply want to go over a particular point again), here’s the entire video.
It was a great discussion. Josh and Craig discussed Craig’s origins in strength athletics, carryover from other sports, working with various coaches, sports-specific training, having a solid strength foundation, lifting weights quickly, coaching boxing, strength requirements for athletes, joint angle, training transfer, concurrent training (vs linear, or a periodised approach), perception of workload, familiarity with heavy weight; and a whole lot more. If you’re ready to find out what Strength Development’s all about, make sure you watch this one.
