Training for WrestleMania

I get a lot of questions about whether my methods work for females. The answer is a resounding YES. I’ve trained females for basketball, tennis, field hockey, lacrosse, softball, and professional wrestling. For 25+ years I’ve helped them build muscle, lose fat, get strong, explosive, and athletic AF. The overriding principles of the Renegade Method are the same whether you’re male or female. It’s just that my audience in the gym and online tends to be 80% guys so you don’t hear about it as much. But we still train in a… continue reading.

The No BS Truth About Body Transformation

Summer is coming. There’s no time to waste doing stuff that doesn’t work. The # 1 proven, time-tested way to make structural changes in your body is to place mechanical tension on the muscles with heavy strength training. This is true whether you’re male or female, old or young. It’s not cardio, not hour long mobility flows, not burpees, not juggling weights, not battling ropes, not light complexes, not “functional training” where you stand one one leg on balance boards and bosu balls, not Pilates, not yoga, not getting drenched in sweat or breathing like a locomotive during some type… continue reading.

Are You Doing Too Much Volume? Optimal Frequency, Best Exercises for Abs & Traps – Episode 288

Over the last few years you may have heard some relatively new (less than 10 years of real world experience) trainers and online fitness guru’s regurgitate the following statement, “volume is the key driver of hypertrophy gains.” That statement is continually made these days because of some studies showing that those who did more sets gained more muscle. But it’s hardly conclusive and hardly the advice that everyone should adhere to. If you lack the requisite 10-25 years of real world coaching experience that it takes to wade through all this stuff, you just go with whatever’s popular at the… continue reading.
