“Because Strength is Your Best Defense Against Prison Rape”.

A conversation between myself and one of my close friends years ago is what spawned that infamous Greyskull Tee Shirt design. We were discussing the various reasons that one trains in strength and conditioning. (more…)

What Have You Done Today?

by Johnny Pain

today-show-graphic

What is it about your body that you want to change? Do you want to become stronger? Do you want a more favorable body composition with less bodyfat and more muscle? Do you feel winded when you shouldn’t and want to have a set of iron lungs that you can be proud of and use to participate in sports or activities that you enjoy? Do you want to become more attractive to the opposite sex? What is it? What is it that you want to change, and now the better question, what have you done today to move you closer to that goal?

Eight Ways to Un-Fuck Your CrossFit Gym

by Johnny Pain

As many of you know, I am no stranger to the world of CrossFit. Since I resigned my affiliation with them, my involvement in the “movement” has far from ceased. I have had the good fortune of speaking to hundreds of CrossFitters at events, and in the consulting capacity via phone and internet. In addition, I have helped several CrossFit affiliates design programs for individuals and groups, and have remained an open door resource for many within the organization on a variety of topics. Besides consultation clients, I have had many CrossFit “refugees” join the ranks of Greyskull over the past few years. It is through these experiences that I have observed some major problems in the design and implementation of a “CrossFit” program. The following list is a collection of eight of the more prevalent ones. If attended to, these items can help make for a much better and more valuable CrossFit practice. I do acknowledge the fact that there are some decent programs out there and I do not believe that this represents the affiliates as a whole. However, stereotypes originate from somewhere, I wouldn’t mention any of these things if hadn’t observed them to be woefully deficient in so many cases. If the shoe doesn’t fit, don’t wear it.

Villain Challenge #1

Ok, so a little over a week since this thing went public, and we’re happy as hell to have you all here. We are building something real good here and I look forward to seeing it continue to grow.

The first few installments tackled some of the more philosophical aspects of this entire villain thing. We talked about some of the characteristics that we find admirable and desirable in an individual, and shared some experiences. Similar articles will continue as the site goes on, and I am very excited about the list of contributors that I have lined up. Some columns, like that of “Sunshine” are here to provide entertainment for the readers. StrengthVillain is not ever going to be a run of the mill website that solely discusses strength training. There will always be fresh and entertaining content put out to entertain as well as to educate.

That brings us to this, the latest offering…                        -JP (more…)
