Coach D, Trent, and Charity discuss the tendency of strength coaches and athletes to get hung up chasing PR's on the bar, and missing the forest for the trees -- that is, the greater PR's in life such as raising good families, growing mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. You can find Charity on Instagram at: @charity_silverstrength Connect with …
 
It's January, and that means there are millions of people trying to make good on their New Years' Resolutions. For many, this resolution involves losing weight, cutting body fat, and "leaning up." And predictably many resolutioners first instinct is to hit the cardio machines -- treadmills, ellipticals, exercise bikes, etc. Losing fat, or rather bo…
 
Coach Charity Hambrick returns to the show to discuss her experience contracting COVID-19 and her slow road to get back into training afterward. Though she contracted COVID back in October 2020, Charity had lingering fatigue and muscle cramps for weeks, and loss of smell that lasted for over three months. Despite the mental blow of losing her train…
 
The last episode of 2020! Thanks for tuning in, and we look forward to keeping the conversation about health and fitness going in the New Year. In today's episode, Coach D and Coach Trent discuss the concept of selecting appropriate volume and intensity for a Masters athlete. These are two of the main programming variables, and all athletes need a …
 
In the strength community, the typical advice about warmups is to start warming up with the first barbell lift you will be performing. For many people, especially novices, this will be the squat, so the warm-up would consist of a couple sets of five with the empty bar, then a few progressively heavier sets until the lifter is ready for his or her w…
 
Coach D and Coach Trent continue the discussion on sustainable fitness by diving deeper on the topic of joint health. As the saying goes, "motion is lotion," but what kind of motion should we be doing in training, and is there such thing as too much? As with many things, moderation is key, and periods of strength training with heavy loads followed …
 
Coach Charity Hambrick returns to the podcast for a sort of "coaches' roundtable," an impromptu discussion between three coaches talking shop about training, programming philosophy, and long-term health and fitness. As Coach D reminds us, we're all organisms with a certain trajectory. We're born, we grow and develop, we reach maturity, and not long…
 
What if you just don't like exercise? What if you have trouble sticking with anything physically hard? How do overcome these hurdles? Not everyone falls in love with training, and that's OK.

Coach D and Coach Trent discuss the importance of training with a long-term mindset and an eye on sustainability -- training smart now so you that you can keep training for years! Trent analogizes fitness with cars. If you let a car sit for months, or years, then it starts to deteriorate. A car must run regularly to be healthy. On the other hand, i…
 
In Part 2 of our interview with Dr. Clearfield, he explains how he "helps the body heal itself" using treatments such as proliferative therapy, joint manipulation, platelet-rich plasma injections, and traditional physical therapy and exercise. Dr. Clearfield also discusses his process for analyzing and diagnosing a new patient. You can find out mor…
 
As we've said many times, training for strength improves tissue quality, flexibility, and joint health, especially for Masters lifters who have accumulated some bumps and bruises along the road of life. However, some Masters trainees find that even after they have acquired a solid baseline level of strength, they have lingering issues such as tendo…
 
Want to change your body, change your health, change the way you eat and train? It all starts with the habits you cultivate, and your daily routine. Many folks start a fitness program because they have been driven to change. Something has pushed them over the edge -- the way they look, the way they feel, a negative prognosis -- and they want to mak…
 
Consistency is the key to progress in fitness and nutrition, and that often means doing the same thing workout to workout (ensuring you have a logical progression built into your training program) for long periods of time. Fitness is a marathon, not a sprint, after all. But sometimes the slow, steady nature of training creates the possibility for c…
 
Coach D delivers an overview of total joint replacements, their effectiveness, their limitations, and the considerations for training before and after surgery. Modern medicine has developed artificial joints which can replace damaged or worn out joints in the human body, often with great results. As new materials have been introduced to the prothes…
 
In another 40fit athlete profile, Fort Worth Strength member Brad Lamar joins the show to talk about his amazing journey of losing 50lbs and nearly 10in off his waist while getting stronger and leaner than he's ever been.

Back pain may be the most common type of pain humans experience, but knee pain is a close second. What do you do if you have painful knees, but still need to train? Coach D and Trent discuss the anatomy of the knee, the various causes of knee pain, and tips for training through knee pain. Connect with 40fit Radio 40fit website Facebook 40fit Nation…
 
Back pain is ubiquitous, and an unfortunate reality of being human. As Darin and Trent described in their four-part series of back pain (see episodes 28, 29, 31, and 33), it is a complex problem with many facets, including structural, psychological, and even social causes. That said, many trainees will encounter back pain during their training, so …
 
Coach D and Trent are back after a short break to talk about some trainee's reluctance to increase their calories while barbell training and conditioning. Perhaps driven by a fear of "getting fat," some trainees try to restrict their calories, particularly their carbohydrate intake, during the novice linear progression, frequently causing them to s…
 
Coach D and Coach Trent discuss how they modify the barbell lifts and the novice linear progression for trainees with weak, injured, or tight shoulders. As always, they stick by the basic principle of making the lifter adapt to the model and the process, not adapting the process to fit the lifter. Often, simply following the process with attention …
 
Professional hunter, videographer, and host of the show Blue Collar Adventures, Jay Presti, returns to the show to share the progress he's made barbell training during his novice linear progression. After just 12 weeks of training, Jay has increased each of his lifts by more than double, he's dropped his body fat percentage by 6.5 points, improved …
 
Coach D and Trent discuss the rationale behind the novice linear progression's use of 3 sets of 5 for the squat, press, and bench, and 1 set of 5 for the deadlift. They also discuss how and why these rep ranges can be altered as a trainee reaches the end of the novice phase and transitions through the advanced novice phase into intermediate trainin…
 
Where do you draw the line between safety and logic? In today’s episode we discuss the three great “untruths” that pervade American culture.

Coach Darin and Trent discuss how to adjust your program after a prolonged layoff. As the world begins to open up from quarantine, many people will be able to go to the gym for the first time in several weeks. Detraining is an inevitable result of such a long layoff, however, so care must be taken when returning to the gym to avoid extreme soreness…
 
Coach D and Trent have extolled the virtues of lifting barbells for years now. Yet some Masters lifters shy away from lifting heavy in fear that they might hurt themselves, or that it's too tough on their joints. Lifting heavy is not only the best way to build strength, it's essential for building and maintaining healthy joints! Like all things, ho…
 
The fitness world is awash in gurus peddling "the last word" in fitness and health. Even reasonable trainees following time-tested programs can get tunnel vision and fail to address other aspects of their health and fitness. At 40fit, Coach D and Trent believe in a well-balanced approach to fitness driven by the trainee's personal goals. And we tem…

The COVID-19 pandemic has gotten many people thinking about their immune system, and how well equipped their body is for fighting pathogens.

It's inevitable... someday you're going to miss a rep. What then?

In this episode, Coach D and Trent walk through some practical tips for evaluating where you ar…
 
Happy New Year folks! We LOVE the big compound lifts, but sometimes you need a little more in your training. Or maybe you need a little extra recovery between heavy bouts of training. In both scenarios, accessory lifts can be used to fill the gaps, increasing the volume of work you're performing each training cycle without dipping too far into your…
 
Coach D and Trent wrap up their discussion of the compound lifts with the Bench Press -- sometimes included in the Big Four compound lifts, although we consider it more of an optional Big Lift. To be sure, the bench press is an important upper body lift, and everyone who can do it should do it! The bench does come with some caveats, however, when i…
 
From the beginning, man has had a need (and a strange desire) to pick stuff up and put it back down again. It shouldn't be a surprise then that the deadlift is one of the Big 3 compound lifts that should make up any good training program. Despite the growing popularity of Crossfit, strongman, and powerlifting in recent years -- all of which feature…
 
Coach D and Trent kick off their deep dive into the compound lifts with an examination of The Squat (that's right, capitalized) and why it's the mother of all lifts. If you don't have squats in your exercise program... you don't know Squat! Connect with 40fit Radio 40fit website Facebook 40fit Masters Community 40fit Radio on Instagram…
 
Coach Darin Deaton and Trent Jones are kicking off a new series about the so-called "Big Lifts" -- the squat, press, and deadlift -- that comprise the majority of the exercises in any good strength program. Why the big lifts? They are simple, hard, and effective. With just three exercises (and, for most people, the bench press as well) you can get …
 
Coach D and Trent discuss the importance of setting good fitness goals, and allowing those goals to evolve and change over time. While all novices should focus on building a solid foundation of strength, intermediate trainees can direct their training in so many different directions, it's easy to get lost. Some trainees get into competition, whethe…
