In many ways, the most important rep of the set is the one you never log--the ZEROTH rep, the one in which the bar is unracked and carried out. The zeroth rep has a big impact on the technical parameters of the remaining reps of the set. Give it the respect it deserves...

We're hunkered down, locked down, feeling down. Many of us work out in commercial gym spaces and suddenly we're without access to our bars and plates and racks. Clearly, this sucks...although it's also a reminder of how important our training is, how deeply embedded it...

We've had a lot of discussion this week on the PoG page--the Facebook page for Patrons of Greysteel--about the coronavirus outbreak. Some of it was a bit doom-and-gloom, some of it sounded prematurely post-apocalyptic, and most of it was common sense. We are all Master...
