ShouldeRök™ How It’s Made Video

ShouldeRök™ How It’s Made Video

by Chris Duffin January 04, 2023

The following video details the number or processes involved in making the ShouldeRök™. Pictures don’t do the product full justice, as any ShouldeRök™ customer will tell you. Once in your hands you will see the true craftsmanship and how it’s built to last a lifetime. In this video you will see the ShouldeRök™ nut being cut out of raw plate on a CNC laser cutting machine. It is later put through the lathe to have the thread cut on the inside diameter and then tumbled to smooth the finish.

The next step shown in the video is the turning of the main head which is cut out of solid 3” round stock before it becomes the finished component you see. In my personal shop you will see the perfect Diamond knurl being added to the handle. Then the forming of the flare on the end of the handle, which is the final touch before the assembly is welded together in the rotary welder.

Unfortunately the plating shop didn’t allow me to get any shots of the ShouldeRök™ going into the dip tanks.

In addition to the How-Its-Made video here are a couple recent ShouldeRök™ reviews. The first one is what inspired me to use some Conan music as the background to this video. It only seemed fitting.

Training Should Be Corrective and Rehabilitative
Training Should Be Corrective and Rehabilitative

by Daniel DeBrocke January 09, 2023

A common problem is the neglect lifters have toward their orthopedic health. At least until they become injured and are forced to address it. Unfortunately, they turn to theraguns, foam rolling, static stretching, and other approaches that often do little to move the needle. What people often get wrong is their training should simultaneously enhance their performance and address their long term health. In this article I’ll cover how to effectively incorporate corrective work into your training (and no, I’m not talking about spending an hour using therabands).

The Men’s Mental Health Crisis
The Men’s Mental Health Crisis

by Daniel DeBrocke January 06, 2023

The writing of this article was prompted by all the social media posts I’ve seen talking about men’s mental health. Apparently November is men’s mental health month. That is unless you’re struggling with your own mental health issues. Then, every month, week, and day may very well be an ongoing struggle. Although throughout this article I’ll be referencing comparative data between men and women and differing demographics, the point is not to prop up men's suffering above women or anyone else for that matter. It’s simply there to elucidate the current state of men’s mental health, which is the central focus of this article. “Einstein is quoted as having said that if he had one hour to save the world he would spend fifty-five minutes defining the problem and only five minutes finding the solution” (1). This mentality exists in contrast to the current lack of awareness pertaining to the drivers of psychological ill-health. Social media and articles routinely discuss what to do if you’re depressed, anxious, suicidal, etc. But seldom does anyone discuss the complexity of the subject. Unfortunately, without truly understanding the issues that lead to ill-health it’s unlikely to come up with an effective solution and subsequent prevention strategies. Therefore the aim of this article is as follows:

Is Full Range Of Motion Actually Better For Muscle Growth?
Is Full Range Of Motion Actually Better For Muscle Growth?

by Daniel DeBrocke January 06, 2023

Optimizing exercise range of motion to maximize muscle growth is a popular topic to discuss. As new research emerges, it often leaves you with more questions about the fundamental mechanisms and application of hypertrophy training. Mechanical tension is known as a primary driver of hypertrophy. Therefore it stands to reason that training a muscle through larger ranges of motion will create more tension, resulting in a greater hypertrophic stimulus. Although this makes sense at face value, it’s ultimately an unsatisfactory answer. At deeper levels of analysis, mechanical tension alone (or at least our current model) can not explain some of the observed outcomes we see both in the literature and anecdotally. The aim of this article is to provide a brief review of the topic, provide context to the ROM discussion, and offer practical recommendations to implement into your own training.
