No matter what your sport is what fitness goal you are training for, strength training should be a part of your program. Strength training is not just for powerlifters and bodybuilders or general gym goers wanting to gain weight. Strength training is important for improving flexibility, speed and explosive power. It is the most effective method of increasing core strength and stability and, most importantly can help hugely with injury prevention.

To me it looks like you are driving through the balls of your feet. A big no-no. Drive through your heels. Doesnt matter how far forward your knees are, for everybody it's different - depends on leg length etc. Practise doing body weight squat...
Me again :-) Do they offer trainer services? Because it is worth the money to get a custom plan made for yourself (on private session). You can have it revised every now and then, or move on by yourself once you h...

Jen G answered the question Which is better, a lever or a two pronged weightlifting belt?
IMO, prong > lever. Inzer makes some great belts.

I use a two prong, and I dislike lever belts beacause of the time they take to adjust
Cecelia S Any tips to offer for back squats? We tested for our 1 rep max and my max was 180. I've been training since March 2013, my very first 1 RM was only 95 lbs, so I know I'm progressing, but this cycle seems really difficult!! Our cycle requires us to lift 50, 60, 70 and 80% of our 1 rm for five reps and today I could barely do it! Is there any accessory muscle exercises I can benefit from? My trainer said to really control the down, and then explode back up, which did really help, but I forgot to ask if there's anything else I can do to strengthen other supporting muscles. Thanks in advance!

Depends what the "stuff is hey. I would assume they are drinking Pre-workout or Intra-workout shakes which are designed for an extra boost during a training session. I drink a Pre-workout before every hard training s...

The short answer is no, you don't really need it. Like all supplements, what they are taking in will be an artificial mixture of nutrients that will either help in their recovery or prolong their endurance. There are...

It could easily be whey protein that they are ingesting (it is after all the most common workout supplement). I used to take whey protein, creatine and amino acids (L-Glutamine) but don't any longer. I think it is fa...
