Why is it that we always want more, more, more? If less is more, then more is better! Those who have trained with me know that I am a minimalist. I focus solely on what matters most. Both Dan and Pavel have not only personally included extremely useful information, but also included tips from highly accomplished coaches from all over the world.
Coaches like Barry Ross, a world-class sprint coach who trained meter Gold Medalist Allyson Felix to the fastest m in the world at age Yuri Verkhoshansky, a highly distinguished Russian coach. Professor Nikolay Ozolin, one of the founders of Russian sports science and mentor to previously mentioned Verkhoshansky. Ozolin was also a pole-vaulter, breaking countless records and won an unprecedented 12 national championships, his last at age Steve Baccari, one of the best strength coaches in the MMA world.
Dan has been a coach for over thirty years, coaching weightlifting, track and field, and football. What do all these professionals have in common? As I said before, the book is a gem and a must own for fitness professionals and weekend warriors alike. If you want to get the full picture, read the book. We train movements and your muscles get stronger, bigger, leaner, more powerful, etc. Rather you should probably spend time in what Dan refers to as Quadrant 1; gym class, organized sport or recreational activities Dan has a system of classifying athletes based on the number of qualities the athlete has and the ratio of their relative max.
For my clients and I, a strong foundation begins with positional breathing via exercises from the Postural Restoration Institute. While you could further break each of these down to unilateral, bilateral, horizontal, and vertical, these 6 movements make up everything we do as athletes or better yet, human beings! Picture this? What would you do? However, that sums it up. I admit that even I thought twice about this style. Pick your big bang exercises, keep the volume low, always leave one to two reps in the tank, and make sure you finish your workout feeling STRONGER than when you started.
But how many times do you leave the gym actually feeling stronger? However I put it in bold for a reason. Easy Strength is not the first of its kind to come around. Both authors are in favor of cycling programs every couple of weeks. Keep track of your programs and organize them in advance. There are 6 programs mentioned in this blog with countless more from you to choose from or create on your own.
The best part is that I only discussed one topic here in the article, strength. It covers power development, speed, explosiveness, and so much more! Overspeed eccentrics, banded swings; fun stuff!

Not to mention that Pavel and Dan are both highly accomplished professionals in their own right. Both Dan and Pavel agree and like to focus on the following movement patterns for strength: Push Pull Squat Hinge Explosive Full-Body Various Rotary Movements While you could further break each of these down to unilateral, bilateral, horizontal, and vertical, these 6 movements make up everything we do as athletes or better yet, human beings!
So how do you get strong in these 6 movements? So, what would you do? East Strength looks at everything this way. Do the absolute minimum to get the absolute maximum. Just kidding… However, that sums it up. Thinking of schemes to make sure you keep you reps under 10 while varying the intensity? How about the sport of LIFE! Sounds like a win-win to me folks! Be Strong!
