Redefining “Dysfunctional”, and Finding Pieces to the Puzzle

0

A funny thing keeps on happening as I continue through the off-season for many of my clients: many individuals still have some sort of dysfunction present on a neuromuscular level. What I mean by this is that despite the advanced assessment process, despite auditing how someone moves, and despite controlling for as many variables as I can from an exercise […]

Musings and Things to Read – 7.15.2015

0

Hope your summer is going along swimmingly! Here are some of my thoughts as many of our college and high school athletes are coming mid-way through their off-season training. Movement Doesn’t Tell The Whole Picture Biomechanical (in)efficiencies do not equate to physiological competency. Just because you move well in isolation outside of your sport, does not mean you have enough […]

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 […]

0

How else can I review Examine.com’s new product without being super objective? Kidding aside, when I first heard of Examine.com’s efforts of documenting and reading research on supplements, I cringed – the mere thought of sifting through thousands of documents and articles in order to decipher the “truth” about supplements is difficult to do, let alone imagining the amount of hours […]

Methods vs Principles in the “Industry”

0

As a coach, I am fortunate to come into contact with several types of people utilizing movement as their method of filtration. Whether it is guiding an athlete to gain weight for another successful in-season, or a client aiming to lose weight for an upcoming wedding, there are many avenues and paths that can be chosen.
