Training After a Layoff with Jacob James

Whether your gym was closed, you were injured or you simply got distracted, coming back into the gym after a layoff needs to be well planned.  Many of us want to simply jump back in where we left off, but this can be a recipe for disaster.  Our bodies become detrained without stimulation, and we can lose significant strength, power and conditioning over a few weeks.

In today’s podcast, coach Jack James, from Crusader Strength, discusses his plan for bringing his athletes back from layoff.


We discuss:

  • The mindset needed during your return
  • Physical assessments to measure how far you’ve fallen
  • The Ultimate training method to use after a layoff
  • Taking the time to address weak links
  • Being mindful of people’s varying situations
