Yo Yo, It's Coach Mike here checking in on this not too cold as fuuuuuug day in Massachusetts. So, I wanted to talk briefly on goal setting and the mental approach to training that I think many people can sometimes burn themselves the hell out if they don't have a good grasp on some key aspects that I'll address today. As some of you know, I am on a personal journey to lose a LOT [...]

Strength and Technique pulling under the bar in the snatch First things first, make sure you are set up properly. Grip wide enough that the bar hits the crease of the hips while standing up with relaxed arms. Shoulders over or slightly in front of the bar.

This past weekend, history was made without a shadow of doubt at the 2016 Wodapalooza in Miami, Florida and I am still kicking my ass for not being in attendance but, slightly happy due to all of that DREADED rain *Yes I am a diva* This year, one of the Iron Force Athletics Remote Masters athletes Colleen Fahey absolutely put on a clinic of athleticism and took home a well deserved first place victory. I [...]
Low back pain has been something I’ve been plagued with for years. I’m assuming this is a direct reflection of my brother and I trying to relive the WWF glory days in our parents backyard, or maybe the legendary beatings we’d unleash upon each other after someone lost in Duck Hunt (Yes that asshole dog that giggled when you lost still gives me nightmares) But all joking aside, low back tightness, stiffness and achiness [...]
Have you ever noticed how food absolutely changes your mood for good or for bad? Think about it for a second. As Football season is just ramping up, every Sunday from now until the dawn of time will be spent at your house, a friends house, a bar, a lounge, or physically at a game.

It’s no surprise to walk into any gym at any given time, to see someone squatting more weight than they can properly handle. As a coach, I cringe walking through most gyms as I’m a freak about form and always want to give my advice and guidance to everyone that might need it. Unfortunately, these days, when I’m not training at Iron Force Athletics, or training at my friends box’s/gyms, I’ve got my headphones on [...]
