5 Way's To Identify Someone from Advanced Training

Advanced Training is like a Secret Society.

Not too many people know about it...

You kind of need to know someone to get in...

But for those that have been in, they can easily spot another member from a mile away.

Oddly enough, it is not the physical features that give it away.

We don't have any special tattoos or branding.

We don't have any unique physical features - except maybe a HUGE upper middle back ...

- but those can easily be purchased at your local convenience store.

What cannot be purchased, however, is how you move outside the gym.

And this, my friends, is how you can tell if someone is from Advanced Training.

1. How They Get Off the Couch

Someone from Advanced Training never misses an opportunity to perfect their squat technique. What better way to do that then to perform the concentric movement of a box squat every time you get off the couch?

Lead up with your chest ....

Drive through the outside of your feet ...

Squeeze the glutes at the top ...

If this is not going through your head every time you stand up, I have failed you.

2. How They Open a Jar

"Break the Bar...."

We say this 1,000 times a training session.


We want to maximize the potential of hyper-irradiation via the valsalva maneuver.


Don't worry about the details .... Just remember that the harder you squeeze BEFORE you apply force, the stronger you will be.

Watch someone from Advanced Training open a jar.

They brace for 5 seconds, then they twist off the lid "Like Water".

3. How They Pick Up Luggage


You mean the things they put on luggage for children?

Grown men don't use wheels ...

We carry luggage like it's a sandbag or a farmer's walk.

How do we pick it up?

We deadlift it, of course!

Long spine, big chest, posterior chain activated ... Always!!!

Rounded back ... Never!!!

4. How They Walk Their Dog

Once again, we never miss an opportunity to get better.

As we walk our dogs, we ensure that every step we take begins with a foot strike that is directly under our hips.

We make sure we focus on pulling the ground behind us.

And most importantly, we make sure we are primarily using the inside of our feet as opposed to the outside.

If you see a guy walking his dog with his feet flailing out to the sides, he's never been part of Advanced Training.

5. How They Run for the Bus

It doesn't matter if you are running the 40, running for a bus, or running from the cops...

You'd better have perfect arm angles.

Watch an Advanced Training member jog from point A to point B.

Did you ever see his arms swing from side to side????

Exactly ...
