  • Back to the Basics: The Goblet Squat

    Back to the Basics: The Goblet Squat

    Back to the Basics: The Goblet Squat I consider the goblet squat to be a foundational exercise at BFP. In my opinion, it’s a great exercise for teaching good habits in the squat movement. That is why the goblet squat is a go-to exercise for beginners (doesn’t matter what age) because it allows the person to feel the movement without a significant amount of weight. As time goes on, the squat movement can then be progressed into some heavier weighted squats, whether it’s with double kettlebells, the trap bar or a barbell. Ever hear the term, back to the basics? Well, this theory can apply to squatting. It’s easy to get caught up in a training cycle with ....

    This month we want to recognize Maddox Griffin as the BFP Athlete of the Month! Maddox comes in and works hard every single session. Not only does he work hard, but he has a great attitude as well. Maddox is always ready for the next challenge, and with the next joke! When we say he’s always ready for the next challenge, we mean it. Maddox regularly looks for opportunities to go up in weight in his strength training! Nearly every session he’ll say “Coach, I did ‘this much’ last time so i think I can do this much more this time!” Since starting, Maddox has gotten stronger, and his technique has cleaned up quite a bit. Maddox, ....

    This month I want to acknowledge and give a shout out to Cam Rickabaugh for being the athlete of the month at BFP! Cam has been training at BFP since middle school and currently, he is wrapping up his sophomore year at Topsail High School. So I have known Cam for a while now. His parents (Brad and Katie) also are members of BFP and are setting a great example of long-term health and fitness. When it comes to his training, he has been very consistent for a good part of a year, and “let me tell you”, this kid is turning into a man! It’s amazing how progressive strength training can transform a teenager if they stay consistent with it. I gotta give it to Cam ....

  • 10 Steps For Setting and Actually Crushing Your Goal

    10 Steps For Setting and Actually Crushing Your Goal

    Everyone is setting goals right now. I know I know. Setting goals is something our teachers had us do in school. Or, you’ve set goals in the past and let them go some time in February. I’ve been there, on multiple occasions in fact. It doesn’t mean that setting goals isn’t useful though. Taking time to evaluate where you are and where you want to be is valuable for numerous reasons! Setting goals is only the first step. It’s that final piece of the puzzle. The fun, and the practical aspect of legitimately hitting a goal is in the planning and the practice. But wait, you say you planned it out last year and still didn’t hit?? ....

    Whew, if yall want to push hard during a morning workout, try and keep up with Heather Martin! I have had the opportunity to coach her for a good part of a year, and let me tell you, this lady will take it to the limits. As a coach, I value her work ethic and the energy she brings during the session. She uplifts her fellow peers with positive cheers and definitely leads by example. Heather is a military spouse and mom of 3 kids. I understand that all of those can provide obstacles within themselves. I can tell she priorities health and fitness, even if she has to bring her kids with her, she still carves out time for herself to train. Hopefully, they see the hard work she is ....

  • Different Ways to Grip the Barbell

    Different Ways to Grip the Barbell

    Have you ever given any thought to the grip you use when lifting a barbell? Well if not, just know when gripping a barbell, there are a variety of grips that can be used for certain exercises and each one serves a purpose. Some will allow you to lift a little more weight, while some will put you in a stronger, stable position and maybe help you work around an injury. One thing we should strive for with each grip is to have a neutral wrist. Check out the different styles of grips below and take note that the origin behind these grips begins from the anatomical position. The pronated grip or “overhand” grip is going to be the most common grip used for ....

    This month I want to give a shoutout to Ryder Peterson for being athlete of the month at BFP! Ryder has been very consistent with attending his training sessions since the beginning of the 2020 year, (minus the break from the COVID shutdown). On a side note, I felt like he shot up a few inches during that time because now he towers over me by 3-4 inches! He trains during the middle school session on Monday/Wednesday and he puts a lot of effort into his workouts, whether he’s challenging the weight he uses or exploring new movements. I can honestly say, Ryder is a genuine person and always has a smile on his face. He respects everyone he trains with and it’s ....
