The Ten Commandments of Lifting

… and Daniel came down from the mountain, yeah, verily, and carried tablets of iron…

1 Use whole body lifts, rarely isolate a muscle

2 Constantly strive for more weight on the bar and move it faster

3 The best anabolic is water

4 Did you eat breakfast? If not, don’t ask me anything about nutrition

5 If you smoke or don’t wear your seat belt, please don’t tell me the quick lifts are dangerous

6 Go heavy, go hard

7 Keep it simple. Less is more

8 You have to put the bar over your head

9 Put the bar on the floor and pick it up a bunch of different ways

10 Know and love the roots of your sport
