recovery Archives - Juggernaut Training Systems

  • The last few weeks there has been a lot on my mind, mainly about this year’s National Championships.  Training has been going pretty well for the most part.  I have gotten my snatch up to 145kg and my Jerk is at 175kg.  The clean doesn’t really matter too much.  I have cleaned 216kg so that […]

  • Nutrition for Maximizing Recovery

    By Juggernaut | In Supplement Reviews | on March 19, 2014

    by Dr. Spencer Nadolsky Getting stronger isn’t just about what we do in the gym. What we do after we step out of the weight room is just as important. Going to the gym is essential for strength gains, sure, but if we neglect our recovery, our gains will not be optimized, and our future […]

  • Go Hard, or Go Home… And Do Some Damage Control

    By Reena Tenorio | In Recovery | on February 25, 2014

    The term “overtraining” is constantly tossed around in the world of sports, performance, and training. I truly believe that an athlete has the potential to overexert their body, and on a regular basis this can lead to injury, decreases in performance and reaching plateaus in training. With the proper methods and amounts of recovery, the […]

  • JTS Classic: Game Day Nutrition

    By Nate Winkler | In Diet | on May 7, 2013

    There are few days in the year more important than ‘Game Day’ for athletes, if any.  Every month away from season is spent preparing, training, dieting, and dreaming of what will happen next season, when all the hard work culminates in dominating performances.  Making all that pain, practice and sacrifice worth it a 100X over.  […]

  • Little Things, Big Difference

    By Josh Thigpen | In Strongman, Training | on March 10, 2013

    There seems to be a trend in the strength/fitness world of not preparing like an athlete. In other words, strength athletes are lazy to put it plain and simple. Many people love jumping on the latest hardcore bandwagon, but at the end of the day they don’t do half of what they could to improve. […]

  • Absolute Max vs Technical Max

    By Daniel Green | In Powerlifting | on February 19, 2013

    All too often it seems like, progress stalls. PRs stop coming. And then what do you do? Well, hilariously, we usually just try the same thing again or tell ourselves we just need to do it but do it better and try harder or get more amped up first! And we are all guilty of […]

    By Juggernaut | In Training | on July 27, 2012

    By Chad Wesley Smith What separates the talented from the successful? Those with potential from those who accomplish great things?

    By Nate Winkler | In Diet, Lose Fat | on May 7, 2012

    Consistency is king, right? Everyone knows that some things work better than others, but no matter what, if you workout more, and eat healthy foods then you will lose fat, get more ‘ripped’, and increase your strength.

  • Workout Nutrition and Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake Recipe

    By Juggernaut | In Training | on October 12, 2011

    When Do I Eat What? This is one of the most common questions we hear at Juggernaut.
