People like Aly get me so excited to do what I do. She wanted a change, made a decision, and has been attacking everything in her program flawlessly! ⠀ Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your process!! #Repost @thestokedshack ・・・ Huge shoutout to Aly (@alsimmo ) on absolutely crushing her first few weeks of training here at The Shack! ⠀ Here she is absolutely dunking some Goblet Squats with ease. Super happy with her progress so far and can’t wait to see more! ⠀ #stokedathletics
Little 3RM@ 8 ... hit 215 today and felt really good about it. Anyway, stay #stoked #stokedathletics #theGreatBrogdini

Coach says focus on recovery, you’re fighting in less than a month. I say you can’t tame me @thestokedbrogi 🖕 Maybe I’ll be a stuntman when I retire from fighting.
Too often, self doubt is the only thing that stands in your way. Whether it’s looking at the last day of your new block, and thinking “whoa.. I don’t know about that,” or starting a business, or acing a course... You are the only one responsible. ⠀ Once you take that sole responsibility and tell yourself you can (and truly believe it), you can almost always already consider it done. ⠀ #stokedathletics
I make things simpler for athletes, strength athletes, and everyday people looking to progress. ⠀ This is my mission. ⠀ This I what I want to put out to the world. ⠀ There is so much bullshit, deceit, and unnecessary complexity surrounding the fitness industry. ⠀ I've decided that my job will be to absorb it, understand it, and present it in a way for YOU to use and progress with. ⠀ I decided that if I wanted to truly attack that mission, then I would have to create a space to train people in a way that gives them the attention, personalized programming, and coaching that they need without draining their bank accounts. ⠀ And that’s exactly why I continue to build @thestokedshack and the Semi-Private Training program. ⠀ I want people to be able to receive the guidance and education about their body’s that they deserve in order to progress towards their goals. ⠀ That is my mission, and it’s one I will not fail. ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics
Nice ⠀ 265/584 ⠀ Awesome having a nice chunk of the MoC family together. Made for a good day. ⠀ #stokedathletics
This is something that has always been in the back of my mind but really hit me the other. ⠀ The focus on games coming up, plays that put points on the board, etc, all matter. ⠀ The workouts we do to allow those wins to manifest matter. ⠀ But what also matters, is how we present the training and education to young athletes now so that they continue even when their athletic days are behind them. ⠀ It’s something I feel has such a great impact. ⠀ I have so many friends and clients who are now adults, and although they had a long, competitive athletic career in both high school and college, have very little knowledge or love of working out. ⠀ People who were stars on their team that don’t know how to lift without getting injured - or even just abandon training because it was always a chore that just came with playing. ⠀ When we train these younger guys and girls though, we have the honor of shaping how they look at the gym for the rest of their life. ⠀ We have the ability to teach them form and technique that can stay with them well into their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, etc. ⠀ Training can be something they learn to love for the rest of their life, or just another tedious activity they HAVE to participate in while they’re in school. ⠀ It’s up to us as coaches to provide a welcoming, motivating atmosphere for these young athletes that allow them to learn more about their own body, mindset, and work ethic. ⠀ @thestokedshack @stokedathletics #stokedathletics
With Monday right around the corner, and it being the weekly international bench day - we figured we’d you leave with a tip on how to appropriately use leg drive, and achieve the most out of your bench. ⠀ Watch to find out how, and watch Matt hike up his shorts for no good reason what so ever, and enjoy! ⠀ #stokedathletics
Wide Grip Rows w. External Rotation are an awesome way to get ready for back squats - where back tightness and external rotation of the shoulder is so crucial! ⠀ Thanks to @reptars_modern_life for putting on an awesome demo of them! ⠀ #stokedathletics

The WHAT can change so much from person to person, because individual preferences play such a huge role. ⠀ But it’s the HOW that remains relatively constant. ⠀ The general public needs to focus so much less on whether keto is better than a IIFYM diet for weight loss, or if Starting Strength will get you stronger than 5/3/1. ⠀ That shit isn’t long term. And what I mean by that is you won’t lose weight or gain strength linearly for the rest of your life. ⠀ At some points you will need to maintain, or even focus on gaining weight back or taking a break from the heavier lifts. ⠀ What is long term, however, are the habits built by doing SOMETHING. ⠀ HOW do we get started. HOW do we stay consistent. HOW do we motivate ourselves when we don’t see progress. ⠀ The focus you’re putting into your diet now will help you learn more about nutrients and what they do in your body - and that doesn’t change. ⠀ The consistency you are nailing in the gym now will build discipline for the future, not matter what program you are doing. ⠀ It isn’t as sexy. It doesn’t start arguments. And it takes a lot more time to develop. ⠀ But it is an investment that can help us break away from the yo-yo culture we are so familiar with. ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics
Huge shoutout to Stoked Online Athlete, Jon (@onisemus_fit ), who has been killing his training while dropping from the 93s to 83s! ⠀ Jon is competing this weekend and we have no doubt that he’ll crush it. Here he is smoking 425lbs along with some back downs. Good luck, dude! ⠀ #stokedathletics
Huge shoutout to Krisann (@choppedjudge ) who has been making some great gains in the semi-private training here at the Shack the last 3 months! ⠀ Here she is knocking out some RDLs for 12 reps with 85lbs. Super hyped on her progress so far and what’s to come! ⠀ @stokedathletics #stokedathletics
Beautiful day out, so I decided to get some sleds in before the “hurricane.” The South is so soft. Anyway, these suck and I hate them.

“You can’t fire a canon from a canoe.” ⠀ The ability to absorb, and control, force is absolutely crucial to producing it. ⠀ Check out Gabby (@the_gnomie ) doing just that with the Depth Drops. Awesome work, Gabby! ⠀ #stokedathletics
A day later than usual, but it doesn’t mean it holds any less value ⠀ You can relate this to anything. Sports & injuries, or even outside life stress. These problems can definitely be created yourself, but with the right plan of action, and persistence, you’ll kiss it goodbye. ⠀ Remain tougher than the problems standing in your way - eventually, the problems seem to give up. ⠀ #stokedathletics
My man Ronnie (@ronald_durante32 ) looking POWERFUL! ⠀ Ronnie is a goalie, primarily lacrosse but also soccer, and needs to be able to move laterally quickly with power. ⠀ So today we started with just that - powerful lateral broad jumps, then worked our way to make him move a bit quicker, and threw in a reactive component. ⠀ Proud of this guy and his progress so far. Keep kicking ass, Ronnie! ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics
Some cardio today cuz @thestokedbrogi hates me. Is this good enough for HIIT intervals you asshole? Note my helper in the bottom left. Little ole chocolate lab needs the ball thrown mid set. I stopped and accommodated #stokedathletics #blackdogathletics
Nicole (@coliecuervo ) showing us what strong looks like with some Side Plank Arm Bars! ⠀ These are TOUGH so make sure you have the proper pre-req’s before giving them a go! ⠀ #stokedathletics

I am a coach. A practitioner. Someone who executes the ideas, methods, and education that I have received from others. ⠀ I believe as coaches, it is our responsibility to distinguish academia and reality. Because all too often, I see (as well as fall victim to myself) coaches applying science EXACTLY how it’s done in the research, with 0 room for leniency. ⠀ I believe we must respect and recognize the literature, and allow it to influence part of our decision making. ⠀ But it is equally, if not more important, that we understand that we can only control so much during training sessions - especially when it comes to larger groups. ⠀ Sometimes we need to sacrifice the ‘best option’ for one that will create more buy-in now, to allow ‘better options’ down the line. ⠀ Sometimes we need to cut down the ‘right amount’ of time for rest intervals to speed things up because it’s about to pour. ⠀ Sometimes, when the starts align, we don’t need to do any of that - and a session works out perfectly, just as we planned. ⠀ I am a coach, and I do my best to respect the science, but recognize the realities of training humans. ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics
New article on the site from Matt! ⠀ Click the link in the bio to learn about the importance of aerobic work in your Powerlifting program, and swipe right to hear a brief summary of why we need it, and an example of one of our favorite ways to put it in for our athletes! ⠀ Let us know what you think! ⠀ #stokedathletics
I absolutely love this quote from Doug over at @resilientppt. ⠀ Pain isn’t a problem - it’s a signal to a problem. However, how strong the signal is, how long it lasts, and how we perceive it can vary so much. ⠀ Doug likened this a smoke alarm. We want it to work, because it’s pretty damn useful if our house catches on fire. ⠀ On the other hand, it’s pretty damn annoying when it goes off when we are just boiling water. ⠀ Pain science isn’t well understood, so it can be hard as a coach to manage situations when clients/athletes feel pain. ⠀ The old idea was just to refer our every single person who feels it. But if that were the case, we’d never be training anyone ever. Because everybody will feel some discomfort at some point. And how they perceive it will be vastly different than the person training next to them. ⠀ So what can we do? Well, here’s how I go about it. ⠀ Can we just lighten the load and does that change anything? Can we decrease the range of motion for the day? Can we literally take a minute to grab a sip of water and come back to it - anything different? ⠀ Then from there, if there is still an issue, we change the exercise entirely. ⠀ That is us raising the ceiling. ⠀ Building a stronger support system for whatever the issue is. It’ll still go off if there is a fire in the house. But it’s less likely to go off when we are boiling the water. ⠀ We respect the signal, and understand that if it keeps popping up, that it is time to see someone about it. What we DON’T do, is fear it. ⠀ Ima say that again. We don’t fear it. We don’t empower it. We don’t let it make us think that we are weak. Again, we respect that it’s there, make some changes, and if it persists, then we see someone about it so that they can help build that ceiling higher. ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics
#Repost @stokedathletics with @get_repost ・・・ Stoked Online Athlete, Chris (@chris.mauceri ) showing us how it’s done when it comes to both producing and absorbing force! ⠀ As a pro fighter, it’s crucial that he can develop quick rates of force production/absorption. These Trap Bar Jumps and GHR Altitude Drops accomplish just that! ⠀ Great job dude! ⠀ #stokedathletics

Check out Dom (@dom_mantovani ), who earned some progressions today after putting in the work these past few weeks! ⠀ Dom’s goal is to get stronger and feel better - and that’s exactly what we are after here. He’s been doing a kickass job making sure his form is crisp so that when the weight moves, they does so seamlessly. ⠀ Awesome job, dude! ______________________ Our Fall schedule kicks off next week - feel free to DM or email mike@stokedathletics.com for more info regarding programs! 🤙🏼 ⠀ #stokedathletics
Very excited to be back with these goons next week alongside @3sixtyathletics and @murphyperformance ! ⠀ If you didn’t see my story yesterday, we are looking to take on 1 intern to shadow us - someone who wants to learn what it’s like to work with teams, someone that will ask great questions and is ready to work! ⠀ If this is something you’re interested in then feel free to shoot me a DM with any questions! ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics

The ability to absorb and reproduce force is crucial for almost every sport. ⠀ Check out Brendan (@bklein6626 ) working on that here with these kick ass Depth Drop Box Jumps! ⠀ #stokedathletics
An oldie, but a goodie ⠀ We are strong believers that the habits & disciplines you create for yourself in one avenue with show itself across all avenues. ⠀ Whether it’s forcing you to do your assistance exercises when you feel like falling asleep, making your bed every morning, or being proactive about all the things in your everyday life that you have to take care of - they’re all connected. ⠀ Disciplined individuals aren’t born disciplined. They do the sucky stuff until they can do it without second thought. ⠀ Force yourself to do the hard, boring stuff. Eventually it’ll become habit. And then it’ll never cross your mind to skimp up with that reinforced discipline. ⠀ #stokedathletics
I fully understand that there will be times where we push the envelope harder than others. ⠀ Times where we will dig deeper than we have before which will result in some pretty achy feels later on. ⠀ But if every training session, every practice, and every game makes you feel like you need to dunk your body in ice then it’s probably a good idea to take a look at what you’re doing to prepare yourself for those activities. ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics
Some training from this week, in no particular order. Loving all the new stuff from @thestokedbrogi , feeling strong and ready to go. Hopefully fight news coming soon!

Zercher squats are my new favorite, thanks @thestokedbrogi for all your futile efforts to make me a strong boy
#Repost @thestokedbrogi with @get_repost ・・・ After a nice ‘off season’ block with tons of hypertrophy and volume, @chris.mauceri is back to focusing on power and strength. ⠀ This specific day is later in the week when fatigue is a bit higher. ⠀ Getting lots of posterior work in the form of GHR Altitude Drops, Trap Bar Jumps, Snatch Grip RDLs and more. ⠀ Not seen are some Plank Walkouts, Sandbag Hug Crossover Step Ups, DB Rows w. Rotation and then conditioning in the form of Split Squat Hold Medball Chest Passes paired with Single Arm Bottoms Up Waiters Carry to emphasize pressing power and shoulder stability. ⠀ Not only does Chris execute these workouts flawlessly, he looks handsome AF doing them. ⠀ @stokedathletics #stokedathletics @stockademuaythai @fightcampconditioning

New cable station is in! But more importantly, can we get a form check on @danielceee ’s deadlift form here? ⠀ #stokedathletics
“How quick do you think I can lose X pounds?” is a common question I get when working with a new client. ⠀ And the truth is, you have options. This post by @shredbyscience does a great job summing it up. ⠀ You can lose weight quickly, or allow it to take a bit longer. But why WOULDN’T you want it to be quickly? Right? ⠀ Well, the quicker we lose that weight, the more calories we will have to cut at the start, the quicker you will become uncomfortable, and the quicker you will plateau. ⠀ This is fine, if you have an emotionally-stable relationship with food, and a short deadline that you need to make weight for. Then after that deadline, you can add back those calories (or reverse diet your way back up). ⠀ It’s not great for long term since we already drastically cut calories at the start. Once you plateau and your weight stalls, there isn’t many more calories to cut before quickly dipping into an unhealthy range. ⠀ That’s why if the goal is longer term, it’s best to try and eat AS MUCH AS YOU CAN while still losing weight, no matter how little. ⠀ This will ensure that we will have room to slowly cut from down the line, without running into any health issues. ⠀ Great post guys! ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics

Programming at its simplest form. ⠀ We have something we want to achieve. ⠀ We have actions that we need to take in order to achieve it. ⠀ There are demands placed on the body that perform these actions. ⠀ And there are limitations that we may have, that impede our ability to train for those demands. ⠀ Training needs to work toward the goal, increase our ability to do the actions needed, strengthen our body’s capacity to handle the demands, and decrease the limitation’s effects on our ability to train for the demands. ⠀ Get it? Got it? Good. ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics
If your first step is lacking power, then you won’t have as much of a base to build momentum off of as you sprint. ⠀ @tomliantonio does a great job creating a ton of power through the ground and into the ball on the first clip, which helps us fine tune positioning for the second clip. ⠀ Lots of power from the legs and hips, with some solid arm action, which means a beautiful first step. ⠀ Excited to get back to work with Tom and the rest of the @liupmlacrosse team very soon! ⠀ #stokedathletics @stokedathletics @thestokedshack

If I repost a post that I’m quoted in, does that mean I’m quoting myself? #Repost @thestokedbrogi ・・・ Awesome quote from my dude @bumtodd from a @strengthfaction call a few weeks back. ⠀ Game planning can get us anxious. Whether it’s programming for training, or business planning. ⠀ I think it’s because we see where we are now, and where we have to be, and we begin to think we have to have it ALL figured out. Every little nuance. ⠀ But that’s not the case. Look at training programs for instance. ⠀ If we have a competition this October, we don’t plan out every block right now - sure we can have an idea of where we will go with them, but we aren’t jotting down every rep, set, intensity, or exercise now. ⠀ That would be ridiculous. Things change. Breakthroughs happen. Plateaus happen. Injuries happen. Accelerated recovery happens. We can’t plan for every quality. ⠀ Be what can we plan for? The next few weeks (for training), or in other facets of life, the next few months or years. ⠀ We make the best plan we can to get us to the next step, and stay flexible with our process while staying focused on our goal. ⠀ Thanks to Todd for this one. And if you are a trainer/Strength Coach then I highly recommend you check out @strengthfaction. I’ve been a member since 2016 and it has been an amazing resource for me to keep growing. ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics

🤘🏼 BENCH PRESS HAND POSITION 🤙🏼 ⠀ This seems to be a game changer for clients who have wrist pain while Bench Pressing (or all pressing for that matter), or are just trying to squeeze all the pounds, or kilos for our anti freedom folks. ⠀ Give it a shot and let us know how it feels! ⠀ #stokedathletics

Field work! Sometimes, we gotta take things outside the Shack like you see here. ⠀ These two programs are run by some awesome coaches, and we are privileged to work with them and be a part of the process. ⠀ #stokedathletics
Squad!! ⠀ Thanks to @deer_park_girls_vtfxc and Coach Jim for an awesome session today! ⠀ Took them through a warm up to do before practices/races, and then hit them with a few power and strength circuits. ⠀ Capped it off with a Bear Crawl Relay Race which was too funny (please swipe). ⠀ Can’t wait to build off this session and watch this team get STRONG! ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics
Big shout out to Matt D. (@mattdsquats ) who smashed it at USAPL's Northeast Regionals this past weekend! ⠀ Here he is hitting a 12.5kg PR on his squat of 225kg/496lb, as well as benching 170/374 (10kg PR), and pulling 215/474 (5kg PR). Matt did a great job mentally dealing with a nagging glute injury that inhibited some of his deadlift training and other big booty exercises. ⠀ We played it smart, pushed when it mattered, and got him out with a big total PR on the other side. We're stoked. ⠀ #stokedathletics
Amazing quote by @fightcampconditioning. And one that rings true for all sports. ⠀ The goal of your sport may not be to be the strongest person on the field, in the ring, on the court, etc. ⠀ And that’s fine. ⠀ But lacking strength, especially when compared to your competition, will absolutely decrease your chances of beating them. ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics

Saw some great discussion earlier about Pendlay Rows and the role that the erectors play in them, along with exercises like the deadlift. ⠀ @aesthetic_strength shared a solid quote that I dug from @the_muscle_doc that said “The erectors aren’t just extensors, they’re anti-flexors.” ⠀ I wanted to share these as I’m a fan of them for that reason. We normally think of the core when thinking about trunk stability, but forget that our core isn’t just the abs out front that show in the mirror. ⠀ There’s both deeper and posterior muscles that help keep everything groovy, and it’s important to make sure they get their love as well. ⠀ GHR Holds are killer for this, as a little weight can go a long way for developing isometric anti-flexion strength there. ⠀ Tightly hugging a plate, sandbag, or a heavy medball is an awesome way to get the upper back isometrically involved as well. ⠀ You can even progress these by fatiguing the muscles with some back extensions first, then holding at the last rep (I’d progress the hold itself with more weight for a good 8-12 weeks before going onto that). ⠀ Other variations I’ve used are GHR Holds with Row which function a lot more like the Pendlay Row. ⠀ I’ve been programming these for myself and clients after their competition deadlifts for sets of 30 seconds, but you can certainly play with the programming as you see fit. ⠀ Give them a go and let me know how it goes! ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics

If you wanna be the best, it’ll require some very consolidated periods of turning up. ⠀ On the contrary, there will be periods where you have to take the time to slow down, let your body catch it’s breath, and do some work to help set you up better for even more turn up-ness down the line. ⠀ Don’t get too stuck on either side if that peak performance is the ultimate goal. ⠀ #stokedathletics
Susanna had me HYPED this morning when going through my online client check ins. ⠀ How we frame our training and progress is crucial for our success. Stay hungry but recognize the work you put in and appreciate when it shows up. ⠀ She has been kicking ass, and has so much to look forward to - whether it’s her next fight, or just becoming a stronger version of herself this next decade. ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics

Meet Recap*** An amazing 9/9 day filled with PRs. Firstly I want to give a huge thanks to my boys @hayden_prain and @mattpisc for handling me the entire day and making sure everything went smoothly. This meet was moving very fast and without them I would've been stressing hard. It means a ton and I definitely owe you guys a nice 10 buck burrito lmao. Weighed in at 103kg with a singlet on lol. Thirds were a 496lb squat (~30lb meet PR), 375lb bench (~25lb meet PR), and a shocking 475lb deadlift (~10lb meet PR). Most surprised about the deadlift considering my pulling volume was reduced by about 70% due to a glute strain from a few months back. Thank you to @croninstrength for the amazing programming, calculated taper, and making sure I didn't break myself this meet prep. I wish we coulda pushed pulls more but we did what we could. Lastly thank you to everyone at @teamgpt for the constant support. Joining the gym has been the best decision I've made in my lifting career hands down. Now it's time to rot and plan out my next meet 💪 #teamgpt #stokedathletics #beetlebarbell

Interesting fact about Ronnie - He already has the ages picked out where he will take on the names Ron, and Ronald. ⠀ Less interesting fact, he understands that athletic development is just that - development. ⠀ And that the wider we build our base as a youngin, the higher we can develop our athletic ability as we age. ⠀ ⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰ @thestokedshack @stokedathletics #stokedathletics

My god, what an amazing interview this was by @timferriss with the great @georgeraveling. ⠀ It was one of those few times I could truly hear the awe in Tim’s voice as he responded to George’s stories and thoughts. ⠀ A lot of big takeaways here, but the main one being - what are the few things I want to be great at? And how can I do something everyday to express that? ⠀ One of my favorite episodes of the Tim Ferriss show by far. I highly recommend it. ⠀ @stokedathletics @thestokedshack #stokedathletics
With this price increase, will come better communication, more time spent per week on each athlete, and just an all around better coaching experience ⠀ BUT if you sign up before 10/1, you’ll be grandfathered into our current price for as long as you decide to receive coaching from myself. ⠀ If you’ve ever wanted to sign up, now is your time. Once the prices go up, they’re not coming down.

Starting October 1st, we will be increasing our online coaching prices. ⠀ This will NOT impact any current clients’ pricing, and we will honor our current price for anybody that starts before then. ⠀ Feel free to reach out to either Coach Matt (@croninstrength ) or Coach Mike (@thestokedbrogi ) for more information, or peep the link in our bio📲 ⠀ #stokedathletics
