Last week Team RTS spoke about stress management, recovery modalities, and hypothetical scenarios we may want to implement to help encourage long-term progress in powerlifting.

In this episode, we wanted to bring a real-world case-study for how to manipulate training variables when life gets overwhelming. We had the pleasure of speaking with Team RTS Lifter Adam Jones as he describes how a health-related scare helped him to re-imagine what powerlifting means to him and how he changed his training approach for the better.


Nov 25, 2020

In this episode coaches John Garafano, Ross Leppala, and Jim Elli talk about how hectic life can get, how it impacts our training, and what we can do about it.

Life stressors build up over time, and if left alone can prevent us from achieving our lifting and life goals. Bringing awareness to these stressors helps us to accept them and make the next positive step forward. Training is not done in a laboratory and we hope that this episode helps you in your journey wherever you may be.

Sep 8, 2020

In this episode, Coaches John Garafano, Ross Leppala, Jim Elli and Mike Tuchscherer discuss the Emerging Strategies Tool that gets the least amount of love...Pivot Blocks.

Can we "optimize" pivot blocks? Can we increase the success of development blocks if we put more emphasis on the pivot blocks that we write as coaches? If so, how?

In the second half of the podcast, Coach John Garafano chats with Team RTS Lifter Amanda "The Sleeper" Allen about her powerlifting journey.

Spoiler Alert: She's a nighthawk, training in silence, building her strength in the shadows, ready to fight.

Stay tuned until the end for a special announcement.
