The Kraken Files: December 2018: To Train or Not to Train

This month Steph has some excellent advice and explanations on when to skip training. It’s a topic not touched on a lot, and she does an awesome job giving you some advice to be heeded.   This month I thought I would delve a bit into the issue of deciding when NOT to train, whether

The Kraken Files: August 2018

Note: Cutting is a bodybuilding term for dieting down to ridiculously low bodyfat levels. This is part two of an as-yet-undetermined-length series on everything that had to do with my first physique show, which I did June 9th. I covered general cutting/diet for the show last month, and this month I am going to address

The Kraken Files January 2018: STFU AND LIFT, PRINCESS, NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOUR BUTT-HURT

Recently someone I follow on Instagram and admire for his talent and coaching skill in powerlifting posted a rant on a subject I have bitched about in the past as well, and brought up some old themes that I thought were dying out but perhaps are still alive and well. So I figured I would

What Should I Do?

This issue has been covered so many times, I can’t count, but it’s still one of the questions I get asked all the time. The questions comes mostly from kids that train at the gym but it also comes from other coaches and athletes and usually goes something like this:   “What should I do

The Kraken Files: Make the Most of Your Training

I’ve been lifting a long time, about 16 years, 11-12 of which I would call serious, and what most others would call obsessive. In that time, as I gained muscle mass, leaned out, and improved my proportions, I have increasingly been subject to questions from others at various points in the

The Kraken Files: Goal Based Training

The funny thing is that besides the fact that this is a really good article, I discussed many of the same topics recently and agree 100% much of this. Another coach and I were talking about a semi famous Internet coach who bashes lots of people and claims that lifters can only do the classic

The Kraken Files: July 2017 Coaching

So this month I wasn’t sure what the hell to write about….I can rant on and on about a variety of subjects but I feel like I probably should have an ACTUAL MESSAGE or pass on my actual knowledge from experience (not that there is much of that, let’s be real here). However, I started

The Kraken Files June 2017: Overtraining

This month, Steph goes over one of the biggest misconceptions in the training world. The last few months I have been on a gripe-fest bender of bone-picking with subjects likely more interesting to and applicable to women, i.e., last month’s guide to social media posting for women, and the month before that, women and PED
