Training update and HRV Advertisements

My training was going real well until i was rear ended two weeks ago.  That would be my fourth car wreck in 3 years :)  None my fault I might add.  Still I don't feel fell very good at all so i have dialed things way back.  Here I am doing some back to back speed pulls (an idea I got from Brandon Lilly) just before the wreck.
Singles done with 405. 

The below was done this past Friday 1/11 took the weight down on the squat to 330 and did some really deep pause box squat.  I like doing these from time to time.  Short rest I do a triple at the end.

Today I did some floor press and some upper body rep work.

We were lucky enough to have Joel Jamieson come to the gym and Shoot a promo of Molly and I for his HVR application.  It is a product we both use and benefit from greatly.  The video does a great job highlighting the gym and what we are all about.

Don't forget to check out our Product BootCamp in a Box that comes out on Tuesday. Molly and I have teamed u with the likes of Mike Robertson and Robb Wolf to bring this product to you. It is going to be a game changer don't be left behind.


  1. Hey Jim, sorry to hear about the car wreck. Hope you heal up quick and congrats on the Bootcamp in a box release.
    I remember you saying in one of your videos that you don't need to wear oly shoes anymore I believe because you reduced your APT. I have some pretty harsh APT and minor back pain. I was wondering what helped you the most in reducing your APT (hip flexor stretching or glute strengthening?)
    Thanks for any help you can offer and it'll be awesome when your next radio show comes out.


  2. Josh so sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. The biggest thing that helped my squat was getting my pelvis into the right position. Check out this post I did for Robb Wolf

Chill the "F" out ......

In today’s episode of the Gym Laird show, I am joined in studio with my client Rachael Bertram Mathews. I ask Rachael to share her story as she has done what a lot of women do to lose weight only to gain weight. She shares how she: – Was training boot camp 4 days a week at 5am
– How her previous coach told her to add more cardio once she plateaued
– How her motivation dwindled and she couldn’t bring herself to go to boot camp
– Discovered powerlifting when her friend told her about Gym Laird
– Why I told her she needed to train less and calm down when they started working together
– Once she got her nutrition and exercise in check how her moods changed
– Why she benefits from having a coach
– Why self care is important Left pic: 3 years of 3-4 times a week 5 am boot camp. Last 6-8 months added a second session a day. Weight was 160 lbs and gaining weight while overtraining. Right pic:
Training with me for 3 years. Strength training 3 times per week. 4 powerlifting meets, lifestyle change, ma…
