@futurism wtf, man.
Said I’d start doing more cardio this block so: conv DL 285x10, followed by drop-sets of 260x10/3, 5x10 snatch grip 4:0:4 tempo deadlifts, 3x8 stiff-legged deadlifts with 4ct eccentric, 4x15 SL KB RDL, 3x15 BW SL hip thrusters. Massive hypertrophy block, week 2 complete. Emphasis on muscle mass accumulation and low back strength. Last week I had genuine concerns of giving myself rhabdo. This week I didn’t throw up. Things are trending the right direction. Either gonna be super jacked or super injured. It’s so exciting! #ptswholift #2yearplan #forevermeathead
💥Bar Path💥 One of the things I have struggled with over the years is getting a more vertical pull during the first portion of the deadlift. These bar deviations are inefficient and create a lower ceiling for performance and something I’ve been working on. The first video is 410lbs, you can see I rush the pull a little and pop my hips early which shifts the moment vector anteriorly. Cueing more patience off the floor and getting my chest up more has smoothed this out quite a bit in the second video with 420lbs. Never perfect, but always trying to get better. #deadlift #ptswholift
Music is an incredible thing. Got about two hours of sleep last night. Kiddo has the black lung (pop), psychosocial stressors are through the roof (cue nervous system flare up on all fronts), walking with a noticeable limp thanks to an old ankle injury (remember when I used to be a runner? Lolololol), it’s dark and cold and coffee isn’t cutting it...then you turn on your radio and a song that immediately brings you back to being 16 years old comes on. Instant joy remembering cruising with your brother in the brown ‘83 Thunderbird with peeling paint, cracked leather but a stereo that CRANKED...young and free. I will always turn this song up. Life is about perspective and expectations often dictate experience. Today will be a good day. No diggity, no doubt. #powerhour #dogoodwork
💥Research Participants Needed💥 Do you live in Reno? Do you want to participate in SCIENCE!? We’re in the recruiting phase for our Nordic HS study and we need you! What it is: An 8-week investigation into Nordic HS curl performance changes utilizing two training protocols; conventional training vs utilization of a novel training platform. Full flier posted on our Facebook page, sign up linked in bio.

New blog post! 💥 Another sneak peak at some of the narrative updates to our protocol. Specifically, when to clear an athlete for RTS? Do you clear them when they pass their testing criteria? Or by time from surgery? Go to Nevpt.com and check out the latest blog post. #acl #aclrehab #aclrehabilitation
🕺ACL strain!🕺 Little sneak peak at one of the infographics from our ACL protocol update. This is a summary of all the strain studies I could find for the anterior cruciate ligament and as usual, the more I read, the more questions I have. These studies should be interpreted cautiously as they come from a variety of research methods but the Luque-Seron et al. (2016) review only used implanted devices so likely the most clinically useful. Updated protocol drops soon. Feel free to DM me with any questions or corrections. @derek_barbellmedicine will be covering #ACLrehab at the @barbell_medicine seminar in January so get your spot reserved today! #acl #aclrehabilitation
Link in bio. We’re 12 weeks out and space is limited!!! Been looking forward to this for a long time! @derek_barbellmedicine @michael_barbellmedicine @barbell_medicine
