“There’s no school like the old school, and I’m the f***ing headmaster!”
- Lenny Cole, RocknRolla
If there’s anything that should NOT be a surprise to you by now, it’s that I’m a fan of all things old school.
Old school strength training. Old school programming. And as far as the previous two are concerned, old school training wisdom.
There are countless axioms, maxims, and rules that comprise old school approaches to the jolly ol’ game of taming iron and getting brute strong, but the ones that stand out the most in my mind are those that put a premium on what Dan John likes to call “Killer Apps” – that is, things that, once implemented, help you excel at a wide variety of tasks with relative ease.
And to my mind, one of the finest axioms of the old school comes from backwoods Tennessee farmer turned Olympic gold medalist Paul Anderson:
“The guy with the biggest butt lifts the biggest weights”
“Big” in this case means muscular. And don’t let the word “guy” fool you; if you’re a lady, these sage words apply every bit as much to you, too.
In fact, one of the fastest ways to boost your overall strength, full-body power, athleticism, resilience, and even flab loss is by training the glutes hard.
But there’s a caveat:
If you love kettlebells and calisthenics, you’ve more than likely been led astray.
The same reductionist mindset that brought you shoddy modern axioms like “you don’t need direct ab work, just squeeze your abs tight when you press/squat/etc” and “you don’t need direct grip work, just squeeze your kettlebells tight” has also brought you…
“You don’t need any extra glute work, just squeeze your butt in all your exercises!”
If this worked so dang well, why not just put the bells down and ONLY squeeze your muscles?
Truth be told, if you wanna keep the Gain Train rollin’ into the station again and again, it’s better to listen to the old schoolers who succeeded under much less favorable circumstances than the new-school wannabe wise guys trying to convince you to do less, ACHIEVE less, and then be happy with it.
Well, F that, I say!
You already know you need strong abs and a strong grip if you wanna skip a few places in line and get better results in less time. And if you wanna cut all the way to the front of the line, toss in some glute-specific work and you’re in business.
My revamped, revitalized, and rejuvenated 21-day challenge, Superior Posterior 2.0, can show you how.
In this challenge you will learn:
- Why low-rep training has failed you, left you with a flat and flabby rear-end, and is almost certainly hampering your ability to break your PRs – both lower AND upper body – and how to kickstart your long-stalled gains with 1-2 kettlebells, moderate to higher reps, and just 10 minutes of daily work or LESS.
- The anatomical secret behind why the glutes are humanity’s secret weapon for explosive power, raw strength, and unstoppable athleticism (page 6)
- Why athletes of all stripes – from ancient Greek pankratists (mixed martial arts fighters) to fearsome, turn-of-the-century American heavyweight boxing champions – arguably all owed their great success to their phenomenally developed hineys (page 7)
- The odd-yet-effective reason why a stronger, more muscular butt might just be the key to breaking your pullup and military pressing PRs (previous Superior Posterior participant and busy mom Lina Eveby of Sweden credits it with helping her break the 10 rep barrier in her own pullups!) (page 9)
- Achy, breaky knees? Your frustrating issues may not be coming from the knees themselves, but rather from THIS issue brought on by weak glutes (page 10)
- Gents: why ladies around the world rate a solid set of buns as one of the top most attractive parts on a man (page 12)
- The reason why swings are undeniably one of the WORST ways to build up your glutes (page 14)
- The FantASStic 4 kettlebell glute drills – and how you can turn exercises that most kettlebell instructors write off as “remedial” into bona fide power tools for crafting sensational power that infuses every nook, cranny, crevice, and corner of your Soft Machine (page 15)
- A bodyweight-only drill that looks like it comes straight out of a Jane Fonda aerobics tape that can not only rapidly shore up your lower body’s weak points, but might even lay the foundation of control and capability needed for advanced moves like pistol squats (page 16)
- A non-glute movement that can keep the balance in your lower body development, increase your lower body power, prevent the dreaded groin strain, and potentially even lay the foundation for revitalized, rejuvenated athleticism (page 17 and 18)
- Stupid-simple technique tweaks that practically FORCE your glutes to work harder and get stronger in your favorite kettlebell drills (page 20)
- The secret 4-step “order of operations” to practically give your body no choice but to hand over new and exciting strength gains FAST – all without endangering yourself or zapping you of your energy (page 24-31)
- A 21-day, no-holds-barred routine that you can add onto your regular workouts to amplify and accelerate your full-body strength gains – all without turning your training into another full-time job (pages 34-37)
- Much, much more
