Charles Poliquin, respected strength coach, has passed away at 57 years of age from a heart attack.

Poliquin authored my favourite training article of all time: The Super Accumulation Program: Overtrain, Rest and Grow! It is equal parts genius and lunatic, all of which is delivered with a kind of comic zeal that makes it as exciting to read as it is instructive.

The thing I took away from Charles was his belief that, ‘If athletes aren’t suffering from tendonitis, they aren’t training hard enough.’

Please read and enjoy.
