August of Arms 2017 Pre-Test Results

August 4th, 2017

August of Arms 2017

I completed my August of Arms Pre-Test Results this past weekend. I thought I’d share them with you. The idea is to improve performance on all 4 of these events by the end of the month.

August of Arms Pre-Test #1 – Close Grip Bench for Reps

I went ahead and did this one over, so it was more accurate. I used 255 pounds this time and actually got more reps than when I shot the demo video a week prior.

August of Arms Pre-Test #2 – Max Alternated Dumbbell Curl

For the first time ever, I successfully curled my dumbbells that are marked 85’s but actually weigh over 91lbs apiece. They are a tough set to curl, and I’m stoked to start off the month of Arm Training with a big lifetime PR.

August of Arms Pre-Test #3 – Max Triceps Push Down

This is really the only lift from testing day that I was disappointed with. I figured I’d end up over 150, but failed on 140 3 different times.

August of Arms Pre-Test #4 – Wall Curl for Reps

For this one, you take half your bodyweight or 125lbs – whichever you prefer. I chose 133lbs, mainly because it’s easy to load.

Overall, I’m happy with my testing. I’m really looking forward to this month of training, no doubt about. Lots of good things gonna be happening!

Stay tuned.

August of Arms

The Funnest Month of Training is Just a Few Days Away, Brotherrrr!

August of Arms 2017 has been updated and is ready to go.

This year’s program is totally overhauled, in an attempt to bring you the best version of August of Arms ever.

What started in 2014 as just “going to the gym and doing whatever random stuff I could think of,” has gradually evolved into a more and more purposeful month of training, which is also full of fun.

This year’s program is based around a new set of Test Lifts. I modified them this year for a few reasons:

  • feedback that I’ve gotten from past customers
  • changes that I’ve made in my training recently
  • to give a change of pace to those who have followed August of Arms the last couple of year
  • and I feel they match better to the goal of building BIGGER and STRONGER arms

The training you this month is based around improving your performance in the Test Lifts, helping you build bigger, stronger arms, and get the most out of your training, with purposefully selected exercises.

August of Arms truly is the Ultimate Arm Training Specialization Program.

To give you an idea of some of the new stuff I’ve got planned for you, I thought I’d post some of my own Test Lifts.

The first Test Lift I’d like to share with you is the Bodyweight Close Grip Bench Press. I plugged this one into the August of Arms program because for a time earlier this Spring, I did a mini-run at the 225lb Bench Press for Reps, like is done in the NFL combine. I liked it so much, that I built it into AOA 2017.

Bodyweight Close Grip Bench Press

Here is my official Pre-Test video for the Bodyweight Close Grip Bench Press.

Don’t worry if you can’t do your bodyweight on the Close Grip Bench. I go over some alternatives you can take in August of Arms.

I’ll be sharing more Testing Results as I complete the Pre-Test Lifts for August of Arms.

If you’re ready to build BIGGER, STRONGER Arms, then pick up your copy of August of Arms 2017 today.

All the best in your training.

Juniata Strength Clinic 2017 Highlights

2017 Juniata Strength and Conditioning Clinic

Last week, I attended the 2017 Juniata College Strength and Conditioning Clinic. Of all the years I’ve attended, and I’ve been to I think ALL but 2 since it first took place in 2000, this was one of the best, in my opinion!

Today, I went through y notes and compiled a list of all my biggest take-aways from the clinic, and shot a video covering them all.
