“Hypertrophy and strength training are complementary – combining both can help to accelerate gains in both muscle size and strength.”
It’s been a long time since we visited the biological principles of strength development. If you are a new coach, a student, or a curious athlete, this episode is vital to understanding some of the more complex concepts of human performance, like rate of force development, compensatory acceleration, hypertrophy, post activation potentiation, and so much more. A huge thank you to our guest, Antonio Squillante for making these digestible even for the Power Athlete meathead.
Exploring the science behind strength and power development is what Antonio Squillante does best. Somehow he was able to make time for John and Tex while getting his PhD at USC. The only thing more impressive than Antonio’s coaching background is his expertise in human performance.

A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
