So… What Do You Do? – Part 2

1

So one aspect of moving to a new state, and working at a new job, is making new friends. Fortunately for me, Massachusetts is a hot bed of strength and conditioning, as there are several handfuls of colleges, private schools, and travel teams of baseball, hockey, lacrosse, and many other sports as well. So, if I say I’m a strength […]

Bodybuilding for Dancers

0

Should dancers utilize bodybuilding protocols to help with their dance? Here is my answer: No! Dancers should not be performing bodybuilding routines to get better at dancing. Black and white statements aside, it is interesting to see and interact with many dancers across many different genres. I’ve associated with classical, modern, jazz, and of course my own respective art, breakdancing, and […]

Charlie Weingroff’s Training = Rehab 2 Seminar [Recap]

1

There is a decent amount of information here. Further, I’d consider the following to be only a snapshot into what was divulged that weekend, along with being relatively random as it is a composite of my notes, memories, and pictures. This blog post, while pseudo-permanent in nature, is merely my interpretation of the information CW provided, along with the understanding […]

5 Thoughts on Conditioning for Dancers

1

Aerobic conditioning often brings about a knee-jerk reaction to thought processes of running long slow distances. The fitness industry has gone back, forth, and back again as to why “long slow distance (LSD) running” is bad for you. I’ve even written an article as to why running is “bad” for bboys. Looking at only mechanics of running versus three dimensional […]

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 […]
