The Truth About Percentage Training by Don Johnson

That’s it for articles for this week. I’m going to try something a little different this time though and also share a few new training videos from the past week from my own training. The common theme with all three videos is that they’re all centered around the posterior chain. What can I say, I love me some glutes and hamstrings!

Split Stance RDLs with the Dead-Squat Bar (I’m really, really liking these)

Single Leg Hip Thrust Finisher (Holy butt burn!!)

Single Leg Hamstring Bodycurl (These don’t look super hard, but it’s taken me a long time to build up to being able to do these. This video is actually the first time I’ve been able to do full reps, so I’m quite happy about that. These really torch the hamstrings).

You can also subscribe to my You Tube page for more demo videos.

Have a good weekend!

    Hey Ben, love the addition of weekly videos to this roundup post, hope you continue.

    Also, really like the split stance trap bar RDL. I’ve been curious about more unilateral exercises with my trap bar (maybe you can do a full post on these?). How much weight are you putting on the back foot? Is it mainly on your front foot as with your sliding one leg RDL’s, or are you keeping more weight on the back foot for this particular variation?

    Is split stance RDL with kettlebells a good version while not having the trap bar?
