Thanks again to everyone who watched and sent in questions for the discussion Gymchat 233 – The Basics of Getting STRONG [with Powerlifter Tyler Wareham (Tyler Thor Jefferis) and Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) and 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 Tyler (joined by Trent Blanchard, Bill Piche and Ben McLaughlin) discussed everyone’s strength-training backgrounds, importance of technique, rep ranges (changing over time), avoidance of max lifts in general training, the Cube Method, Westside Barbell’s Conjugate Method, finding and addressing weaknesses, recovery for strength vs hypertrophy training, training for competitions, preparing for workouts, warming up, value of core work, use of belts; and a whole lot more. If you’re ready to find out what getting seriously strong is all about, make sure you watch this one.
