Over the last few weeks I have been in touch with some of the best trainers I know to keep up with the corner stones to build a training routine for the fall, from the ground up.

a. Zercher squat, rear foot elevated split squat, front squat
- For every squat (knee dominate) exercise do a hinging/ hip dominate
a. Kettle bell swing, glute/ham raise, glute bridge, single leg RDL

Hello, back during the magic Summer of Pokemon GO students training with me dub me Brofessor Bulk and the name seemed to stick. A coach, teacher, and athlete myself I have used my combined training in Psychology, Strength & Conditioning, and Philosophy to create Savage Science to have space to better ponder and test the primary question: How to surpass your limits?
I can’t sit still when pondering the nature of things. And of course if you haven't noticed moviess, games, and anime are tremendous influences in my life. That said I can often be found in practicing Yoga, Transcendental meditation, trail running, indoor bouldering or training Muay Thai, Kali & JKD, CSW, CrossFit, or trying my hand at Strongman.
The Field of research I am currently investigating is Decision Theory.
Join me as we find out what we can learn together!
