Basketball season is getting closer with each passing day. Because of this you should be making a point of starting to peak your off-season training if you haven't already. As a good rule of thumb to follow, the closer you are to your preseason camp starting the more you should be training at peak intensity - meaning weight - and peak technicality.

I love the game of basketball. I love the character traits it helps to produce in people but also the traits it reveals in people.

I have played basketball on five continents. I have led, or helped lead, basketball camps in America, Lithuania,...

With all of the information out there regarding how to increase your vertical jump as well, as how to increase your top speed, it can be confusing to know which is ultimately the right way to train.

While they have definitely profited from the immense popularity of Crossfit and Crossfit-style gyms, they make high-quality products that can be used in a variety of gym contexts...

Hopefully you caught my first post on Training For Physique & Fat Loss. In it I laid out what my most recent training phase was as well as posted my workouts and what my calories & macros currently are at.

I started a new training phase today. My first workout was a few hours ago and I can already feel the soreness kicking in. Advanced German Body Composition (GBC) has never been my favorite. It's never been my favorite because when you do it right you feel like your heart is going to beat right out of your chest. Just when your heart rate starts to come down a b...

     With the prevalence of artificial sweeteners in our food system I thought it was necessary to speak out on why I thought they are extremely bad for you and should NOT be consumed under any circumstances.
