HOW TO TELL IF YOUR BURPEES SUCK
Written by Dave Thomas

The burpee is a movement that gets a bad rep because we assume it has to be done poorly. Thanks to too much beginner exposure to fitness for sport, we are used to this image of the fatigued athlete flopping down and having high school intercourse with the […]

CONCEPT VS. EXPERIENCE
Written by Jarred Collins

There is a difference between experiencing an event as opposed to seeing whether or not the event fits your concept of what it is supposed to be. Although this article is specifically geared towards our gym experiences, I think the best analogy is how it relates to relationships.

HOW TO DO A KETTLEBELL WINDMILL
by Dave Thomas
Performance360

Our perspective is that an athlete should have just as much strength in slow, controlled movements that require a high degree of stability as they do in high speed barbell movements that display power and athleticism.

by Dave Thomas
Performance360

WHAT IS THE FOUNDATION OF FITNESS?
Written by Dave Thomas

Carry
Run
Jump
Throw
Varied Chain
Multi-Planar
