Q: What is the basis for Garage Gym Athlete Programming?

Here at Garage Gym Athlete, we don’t believe in leaving training to personal intuition, gut feelings, hairs on the back of your neck, little devils or angels sitting on your shoulders.

No, we believe in the numbers, we believe in the science and we believe in results. Proven methods and grunt work over experimentation. If we have you doing it, it’s been designed and tested; whether our own creations or modifications of proven methodology.

We were born and bred some of the texts below:

  • Science and Practice of Strength Training by V.M. Zatsiorsky
  • Starzynaki, T.; Sozanski, H. Explosive Power and Jumping Ability for all Sports. 1982.
  • The Westside Barbell Book of Methods by Louie Simmons
  • Bomph, Todor. Theory and Methodology of Training. 1999.
  • Komi, P. V. Strength and Power in Sports.1996.
  • Kurz, Tomas. Science of Sports Training. 2001.
  • Siff, Mel. Supertraining 2004.
  • The Max Effort Method by Jim Wendler
  • Viru, Atko. Adaption in Sports Training. 1995.
  • 531 by Jim Wendler
  • Yessis, M.; Taubo, R. Secrets of Soviet Sports Fitness and Training. 1987.
  • Zawieja, Martin. Periodization of Training for a Methodical Development of
  • Performance in Olympic Lifting-Bundesleague. 1988.

We learn and we adapt. If something isn’t working, we change it. If we find a new way, we create it. If someone else is doing something great, we analyze it.
