In this weeks episode, Joe addresses a topic that’s long overdo – How to [properly] use chains in the weightroom. Contrary to what many Personal Trainers believe; the chains at your gym were NOT put there for you to throw over your shoulder and take douchebag Instagram selfies. They actually serve a greater purpose. In fact, they serve many greater purposes!
During this podcast, Joe explains…
- How & When he first heard about using chains in the weightroom
- How to properly set up the chains to “accommodate resistance” [Most people do it WRONG!]
- Why attaching chains to the barbell works better with exercises that have an “ascending strength curve”
- How “accommodating resistance” with chains leads to greater strength, hypertrophy & power gains
- Why beginner & intermediate athletes SHOULD occasionally train with chains
- Why you should be incorporating chains into your rehabilitation programs [This little-known application can have a profound effect on speeding up the recovery process]
- When should you replace your traditional weight plates and dumbbells with chains?
- Advanced chain application for “chaos” training
- The difference between training with chains vs. bands
And much, Much MORE!
