Strength & Health TV - Episode 39: The Importance of Accessory Work.

In this week's video I talk about my views on accessory work and why it's important for lifters and athletes as well as how I select the work we perform.

Too many times you get opinions that are on both sides of the spectrum. There are the people who believe in performing the classical lifts only and that in perfection of the lifts themselves strength will go up, i.e. the "if you want to squat more, bench more and deadlift more then you need to squat more, bench more and deadlift more" crowd.

Then there are the people who believe "everything is weak so train it all".

I fall in the middle, I feel we as coaches, trainers, and athletes need to constantly assess those we train, and ourselves, and determine what is holding back our lifts or sport performance and then implement the appropriate accessory exercises to ensure strength and performance progress.


If you have any questions or suggestions for future topics please leave them in the comments section below.


Stay Strong AND Healthy,
