Fixing Muscular Imbalances
Every August, he puts out a new edition of this program, with new guest experts, and this year he has put out a new installment on correcting issues throughout the body.
The new edition this year focuses on unconventional training tools, and how they can help correct weaknesses and imbalances through the upper body.
Much of the features of this program entail the use of equipment I have talked about often here at DieselCrew.com.
Here are some samples of this Muscular Imbalances Revealed installment:
- Sledge Hammer Training – Great for the Grip, Sledgehammer Training also gets your heart going while also training the core and glutes. It is also a great contrast training methdo for those who perform a great deal of kettlebell work.
- Ring Training – If you have weaknesses in your shoulders, chest, or back, this type of training will find it and correct it. Much more chaotic that training with barbells, benches, and dip stations, Ring Training makes you learn proper stabilization.
- Sled Training – If you aren’t including some type of sled work, they you most likely have not optimized your lover body recovery. This type of training has become a staple for many powerlifters and strongmen all over the world.
- Tire Flipping – One of the Strongman events that creates the most power, this is a great exercise for strengthening the posterior chain as well. The hammies, glutes, andd lower back are much too weak for some people, and this can help correct that.
- Reverse Stretching – Most people don’t stretch enough period. This section shows you how you can perform essential stretching to correct muscle and fascia issues to address flexibility issues that are hindering your strength development. If you have seemingly tried EVERYTHING in order to fix your imbalances and it has not worked, then this just may be the information you need.
Over the course of this week, the authors have put out samples of their portions of the program, and I have assembled them all here for you.

“We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival.” – Winston Churchill
All I could think about yesterday was what I had to do to survive.
It was a beautiful and hot day. The thermometer was showing over 90 degrees, and although it was slightly cooler in the Garage Gym, it was still humid and everything we touched got covered in sweat.
We started out with about 10 minutes of warm-up that included Mobility / PVC Roller / General Warm-up. By the end of that, we had already sweated through our shirts. Each of us went through a giant glass of water just during this time

Lean on Me
It’s something of an honor to be asked to do a guest post for Smitty and Jedd, especially as I’ve been a big fan for some time. For people that don’t know, my name is Barry Gibson and I own and operate Grapplefit Training in Sunderland, England. I have been the regular strength contributor to Fighters Only Magazine for almost four years now, and have had the concept of Grapplefit for at least seven years. Only now is it becoming a reality and I have my own unit where I train combat athletes full time. I also run fat loss boot camps for ladies and gents not involved in the fight game. One of my more recognizable clients is Ross Pearson – TUF season 9 lightweight winner and now UFC fighter. At the time of writing, Ross has just defeated Aaron Riley at UFC 105.

A New Slant on the 40 Yard Dash for Backyard Cardio
By: Andy Book, CSCS
Running sprints with limited rest periods between repetitions is unquestionably a great method of building strength endurance. On the other hand, running repeated sprints is frankly boring. It’s rare to see even dedicated self-trained athletes running sprints.
Typically, if you see somebody running sprints, there’s a coach directing this effort. If you don’t want to run sprints, but still want to build strength endurance the following circuit is a great alternative for boring sprint work. However, you’ll be doing 40 yard dashes. Boredom shouldn’t be an issue with this circuit. Fried lungs…well that’s another story.
