Hello, Welcome to my site.

My goal is to provide coaches, trainers, athletes and anyone else interested with the latest cutting edge health information, and training and conditioning methods available.

I also want to make available successful programs from the past and the present for all to study and comment on. I want a website that is interactive and productive, where people can exchange and share ideas.

Thanks for your interest. Please feel free to join our site as it expands and evolves!

Credit goes to www.higher-faster-sports.comHow important is a strong vertical jump to you? Well, even if you're not a basketball player, volleyball player, high-jumper, and you don't participate in a sport that requires leaping ability, you still might want to pay attention to it. Yes, even if you happened to be a sumo wrestler, whose sport requires staying glued to the ground - assessing your jumping ability would still have merit for you!

Credit goes to www.alwyncosgrove.comIt is probably obvious to the readers of this site that the average trainee's workout program is absolute garbage. The question that has always bothered me is that despite improvements in technology, supplementation and world class sporting performance, the average training program (for athletes and non-athletes alike) has quite simply not progressed. I have come to the conclusion that there are several reasons for this, and once we can understand the reasons for the misinformation, we can begin to 'absorb what is useful and reject what is useless' (Bruce Lee). So for this article  I'd like to share a few with you –

Credit goes to www.alywncosgrove.comApplying the principles of scientific training– I have come up with ten (and a half J ) training guidelines for the combat athlete that must be present to ensure competitive success. 1: Bodyweight before external resistanceMany athletes make the mistake of beginning a strength routine and going straight for the heavy weights. This usually ends up causing an injury. An athlete has no business using load if he/she cannot stabilize, control and move efficiently with only their bodyweight. So your strength program in the beginning stages may actually include no weights whatsoever. And it will work better and faster than a typical program that relies primarily on weights and machines in the beginning stages. In fact in my experience I’d suggest that some athletes cannot even work with their bodyweight so we may need to modify certain exercises. Do not rush to lift heavy loads – muscle recruitment and control are far more important than maximal strength for any athlete. Without control – the strength is useless.

Credit goes to www.elitefts.com Almost a year ago, Matt Bash and I put our collective heads together and were thinking of different ways to approach our weak point in the deadlift; the lockout.  Basically nothing was helping and this gets very frustrating.  I felt that I had exhausted just about every possibility:  reverse hyperextensions, glute ham raises, pull-throughs, etc.  Everyone reading this article knows the drill, right?  So Matt and had an idea of deadlifting with chains.  This was right after we thought of 100 reasons why we shouldn’t train that day. I think this made a huge difference in my lockout, even after a few workouts.

Credit goes to www.elitefts.comI have a passion for all aspects of strength and conditioning. What I love most is that I am blessed with knowledge and the ability to organize, relate, and help kids to understand. In doing so, I have used a trial and error format. This has never been more evident than with the format used for doing squats in the weight room.  Over the years, squats seemed to remain the most consistent as far as form and technique, until recently. I am always in search of the most effective way to get the most out the student-athlete in the weight room. This does not mean that I am jumping on the next bandwagon.  This means lots of research and practical application with my personal training, as well as with the students. This leads me to the title of this article,”Unlocking the Power of the Posterior Chain”. The key to this powerful lock is that of utilizing low box squats for 95% of squat movements in the weight room. Now many people may counter this by stating, “I am not training my kids to be powerlifters.”  Let me explain the reason behind this statement. I think that a majority of coaches of all sports would agree that one of the most important attributes of an athlete is in the hip flexor, glute, hamstring and spinal erector strength. This is what is often referred to as the posterior chain.  We feel that the box squat is the best option for all athletes, both male and female. There were many factors involved in this decision; time in each class, number of student-athletes, training age, biological age (from 7th grade to 12th grade). There were many more factors, but these factors weighed the most.

     Let me describe to you a sure fire way to lose weight and protect your health. First, we need to understand two terms, glycemic index and glycemic load.Glycemic index- is the ranking of carbohydrate-containing foods based on the blood glucose response and is a measure of carbohydrate quality. The higher the ranking on the glycemic index the lower the quality of the food.Glycemic load- is a standardized measure of the increase in blood sugar 2 hours after consuming a typical serving of food. The higher the fiber content of the food, the lower the glycemic load.     About an hour after eating an easily digestible carbohydrate, blood glucose and insulin levels spike. After 3 to 4 hours blood glucose drops below fasting level, which creates a sensation of hunger. Slowly digested carbohydrates cause less of a spike, blood glucose does not drop below fasting levels and hunger is put on hold!
