Morning Musings – Sprints, and Defining Success (9.25.14)

0

Within a youth athletes’ career, it is imperative to keep in mind that between the ages of 12 years old to roughly 16 or 17 years old is considered developmental. I use the word developmental to describe the large discrepancies in variance from athlete to athlete. Developmental also because the athlete has a plasticity for learning and building a movement […]

Updates and My Bio!

0

The past few weeks have been pretty crazy! And for good reason – I’ve completed my first week at Cressey Sports Performance as their newest strength coach on staff. Erratic blog updates aside, it has been hectic with work-life balance being brought into question (most of the work I take upon myself, for sure). For those that are unfamiliar with […]

My Response to a Friend

1

About once to twice a week, I get a message on Facebook or an email from a friend about their most recent injury plight that they received when they were breakdancing. As you hopefully know by now, breakdancing is a dance that is relatively dangerous depending on your given “expertise” of movements. The movements that can occur in this dance […]

Med Ball Drills for Youth Athletes

0

Throwing a ball against a wall is something of a past-time. The idea of utilizing med ball drills reeks of nostalgia. Perhaps it is more reminiscent of a simpler time, when playing “Wall Ball” in grade school (or more like 2 years ago) was the cool thing to do. Do any kids even do that now, or is it faux […]

I Want to Learn How to Do a Handstand!

0

If you asked a younger version of myself, say 10 years old, “what hobbies do you think you’ll take when you’re in high school?” I probably would have responded with chess, video games, or some type of other equally awesome activities. If you told me that I would be practicing handstands, exercising to get better at breakdancing, and performing one […]

Good morning! Or rather, hope your sleep was well enough to get you going for the rest of your day. One thing I’ve been keeping track of very recently are my sleep levels, the amount of sleep I get, along with what times I actually sleep.   Hopefully this is not like your sleep schedule. With this in mind, I’d like […]

This past weekend I had the opportunity to jump on a bus and go to Beantown. It was totally spur of the moment and I felt like I had a great time connecting with all of my Bostonian friends while I was up there. Many thanks to all who I had the chance to spend time with. My buddy Angel […]

Guidelines for Training With an Injury

0

When you have an injury, it is useful to do several things: Mentally and emotionally accept where you are along the continuum of that injury. Understand and learn as much of the injury’s diagnosis as much as possible. Accept that you can still perform some type of action despite the injury. Understanding GRIT along with understanding your own ability to […]

I had the opportunity to chat once again with Pat Davidson, and was accompanied this time around with Henry Lau, co-founder of the Human Performance Live Forum, who’s name I am now sharing of the newly appointed Human Performance Podcast. Before going into the details of the podcast, I’d like to reach out and see what you, the audience, the […]

Things the Hyper-Neurotic (Like Me) Can Do for 30 min for a Better Life (Instead of Making Excuses or Complaining)

0

I tend to hyperanalyze things. Hyper, in the sense that I have the tendency to extrapolate things out – not out of proportion, merely draw all the steps out in any given situation. This has its benefits – I can begin to tell you a few reasons why I don’t gamble in poker or blackjack, for example. It also has […]
