Louie's Words Of Wisdom
Absolute strength controls all strength gains. Analysis of Hill’s equation shows that speed of movement is dependent on absolute muscular strength: v = Ft/m. This can be found in Fundamentals of Special Strength- Training in Sport (Verkhoshansky, 1986). Thomas Kurz, in Science of Sports Training, reported many ways to become more explosive, but the simplest is to increase absolute strength. #strength101 #westsidebarbell #strengthcoach #strengthandconditioning #louiesimmons #fitness #personaltrainer

They will go above and beyond to fix or find a way around the obstacle that faces them. In my opinion the ones who have planned ahead usually get back faster and more optimal than those who don't! And then the better ones learn from their mistakes!
"Louie Simmons never entered Westside Barbell. As soon as I entered the gym Louie's life, work, and problems stayed outside like they should. I went into another dimension.
