Tonight at #ironburgh: The Log!!! You probably recognise the log as an competitive event from Strongman/Strongwoman but it can also be a great variation to add to a general strength program. It can be more comfortable for some people to press due to the neutral grip and the awkwardness of it builds serious real-world strength. 
Technically it can be challenging but we'll break it down so you'll build strength, technique and confidence. Covering: ✅ Start, end and critical positions ✅ Breathing and bracing ✅ Layback vs Leaning back ✅ Clean, Press, Push Press & Viper Press ✅ General competition standards for those who are interested

Plus, as usual answering any and all question you have. So if you're in the Airdrie/Coatbridge area and fancy being a competitive Strongwoman/man, just want to add a cool variation to your training or a coach wanting to know more then come along tonight at 1930-2100 @jpsgym

Posted @withrepost • @discover_training 😍😍😍 New @kustomkitgymequipment Combo Rack at JP's Gym. Built to @theipf competition specifications it's about as high quality as it gets for squats and bench press: Solid bench, steel rollers, adjustable weight levers (so you can vary the height without removing the bar), safety catchers and quick conversion into squat stands with a tilt system for wider-gripping athletes. A real Rolls-Royce piece of kit.

A gym is a workshop more than a classroom. Sure you'll learn stuff from others but you're building your own thing, not theirs. Even a piece of kit like this isn't just for the elite, considering how easy it is to adjust the setup it can also function to make barbell squats and bench presses more accessible or comfortable to some trainees. So this is another fantastic tool in the toolbox (along with the equally awesome prone-row) to help you build the best, strongest version of yourself @jpsgym whether you're a powerlifter or a postman.

Is Iron Burgh @jpsgym for you?

Allow me to be that guy who answers a question with a question and defer to the great @coachdanjohn . CAN YOU GO? 
This is a question asked of professionals or athletes. When the times comes, even if you're not 100%, can you step up and do what you have to? Think of the firefighter who's been up all night with a new baby but has to attend a house fire the next morning. What do you think his or her answer is? Every. Single. Time. 
Hard situations in life are inevitable:
💪An elderly neighbor needs you to give their car a push. Can you go?
-💪A loved one needs help moving house. Can you go?
-💪You have a health problem, you'll be fine but the treatment requires some reserves in fitness to get through. Can you go?
💪 Captain Hook has kidnapped your kids and all you need to do is climb up the rigging and take them home. Can you go?! If the answer to any of these is "no" or even just "probably" then this class is for you. We can't turn back time (or teach you to fly) but we can absolutely help you get stronger, faster, jump higher, live better and hopefully a bit longer. 
Then, if you decide you prefer Powerlifting, Strongman or any other aspect of the sessions, we can help you walk that path too.

So how will we do it? Swipe above to find out.

Posted @withrepost • @discover_training I mentioned "Iron" in my post about Monklands the other day but I wasn't just referring to the blast furnaces during the industrial revolution. Did you know there used to be a Mr Monklands bodybuilding competition? Run by the legendary Pat McShane, there were even competitions for the audience between judgings, like lifting the old 56lb weight overhead as many times as you can. During the "golden era" of physical culture many people of the area who no longer relied on iron to work chose to move it for fun. There have been several well known and loved local gyms throughout the years and even more strong people built within their walls.

It's no secret I love "old school" training but I've been lucky enough to learn some of that old school gym culture from many of the folk who trained in those gyms, which although it still exists, doesn't get talked about overtly enough. I'm talking things like: -🏋️‍♀️How to properly spot the lifts, when to ask and when to say no
-🏋️‍♂️Do's and Don'ts when there are people lifting heavy nearby (stay safe and out the way)
-🏋️‍♀️"Working in" on a piece of kit and when it's better to wait or find an alternative
🏋️‍♂️Respecting other people's goals and training routines (they aren't less important than yours)
🏋️‍♀️Respecting the gym, the kit and it's proper use (do you really NEED the power rack, calibrated plates and a Texas Power bar for bicep curls?) I've never forgotten those lessons and they'll form part of the Iron Burgh club I'll be coaching, starting 1930, Wednesday 21st at JP's Gym. Named for the area's history and with respect for the gym & lifters of the past, each week we'll focus on a couple of strength movements and cover technique, warmups, mobility, programming and safety for each. Get in touch here or @jpsgym if you're interested.
