This is a transcription of the podcast, which is available on iTunes, SoundCloud, or YouTube. But first, a brief comment on this topic. This is an 11,000 word "article". Yea....it's lengthy, but we only have scratched the surface. To be crystal clear incase you don't listen to the hour long podcast or read every nuanced bit below, kids should be exposed to the lifts, but they can't really train until they've matured hormonally. What this means is that it's very safe for kids to get under a bar, add a little weight and squat, press, deadlift, power clean, and bench press…

We are very excited about our upcoming inaugural Barbell Medicine seminar in San Antonio, TX (link). As the final few spots for this seminar sell out, we are already planning additional seminars around the country later in the year (including Sacramento (link) and Philadelphia)! For those who still aren’t quite sure what the weekend will involve, we wanted to talk a bit more about the idea behind the project. For the past several years we have emphasized the importance of strength training for health and successful aging. We’ve written a number of articles, given lectures, and recorded podcasts discussing strength…

Q/A with Dr. Baraki and Dr. Feigenbaum

    Dr. Feigenbaum:                Hey, welcome back to the Barbell Medicine Podcast. I'm Dr. Feigenbaum, I'm joined here with Dr. Baraki. This is another Q&A episode, and we like doing these things- Dr. Baraki:                              Or episodes. Dr. Feigenbaum:                Episodes, potentially. We have a lot of questions to get through, so we're going to have a slightly different format this time. What I will do, is I will play moderator, the first tank-top wearing moderator that the internet has ever seen, and I will read the question. I'm going to give Dr. Baraki one minute to respond, I have a timer…

In the Open: Nutrition Strategy for 17.2

Week number 2 is here and guess what....more dumbbells! Great! Let's get into it: The Workout: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufUKkrH03rE Duration: 12 minutes Like last week, this has quite a big aerobic piece to it given the length of the workout and the different movements may allow those with a big engine to keep moving, provided their grip holds out. I also expect this workout to be more of a one and done situation compared to last week because of the risk for tearing up the hands and significant volume of lunges that ultimately would compromise next week's performance. If you're on the bubble, you'll…

The Grip Problem

This article was originally published on StartingStrength.com on August 3rd, 2016. I am reposting it on my own personal blog. All images are property of The Aasgaard Company and cannot be used without approval. The grip in the deadlift is an often overlooked yet crucial piece of the puzzle when it comes to performance and the subsequent gainzZz™ from the lift. In the 2nd installment of The Problem series, we’ll discuss the intricacies of gripping the bar in the deadlift, and what to do about it. To begin, let’s discuss why we’re strength training in the first place. The rather obvious…

In the Open: Nutritional Strategies for 17.1

17.1 (<<<PDF available here) A brief introduction and then we can get right into this. I'm Jordan. I'm a lifter, a doctor, and I help people with their nutrition, programming, technique, or existential crises. I've had the fortune to work with world-class competitors on many different stages including CrossFit Games level athletes. I get offended on the inside when people ask if I "just do macros", but I am a fan of objectively measured intake when it is appropriate. In any event, I thought it'd be cool to put out some information each week about how I'd plan a model athlete's…

General Strength Training Template for the Intermediate/Advanced

By Jordan Feigenbaum Hey there! I was contacted by Scivation a few months back to come up with a series of workouts geared toward improving strength, as this is right in my wheelhouse. They'll be releasing the workouts on their Instagram little by little, but I wrote a longer article to explain the how and whys of the program for those who are interested. First, let's get to the workouts. I've initially programmed three workouts per week that we’ll run for the first month before adjusting some of the variables for optimal progress: Workout 1 Competition Squat x 1 @…

What I’m Reading

By Jordan Feigenbaum Hey there, readers! A different kind of post today and luckily for those of you who are still recovering from reading about my CrossFit experience it's a short one. I often get asked "What should I read?" as it pertains to increasing one's knowledge base to advance their career in the fitness or strength and conditioning world. The answer to that question is simple. READ EVERYHING. No seriously, everything! Read journal articles, text books, blogs, editorials, etc. and consume as much as you can. On the other hand, a far more interesting (in my opinion) question is…

Powerlifter Switches to CrossFit, “Competes” in the Open, Hilarity Ensues

By Jordan Feigenbaum So this is about a week two weeks late, but I thought I would catalogue my thoughts about how my foray into the world of CrossFit has been going along with my reflections on the 2016 CrossFit Open. On October 17th I competed in my last powerlifting meet, 2015 USAPL Raw Nationals, where I took 4th out of 73 in the 93kg (205lb) open class with a 573 squat, 407 bench press, and 678 deadlift. It wasn't my best meet, but at that point I'd been dealing with a lot of burn out, frustration, and just plain…
