"Coach's Eye" Phone App

In a random conversation in the weight room a few weeks ago, our swim coach showed me an App for smart phones called "Coach's Eye". Using your phone, you can film an athlete's technique and then break it down with them on the spot. My favorite part of it is the side by side feature where you can compare the technique of two different athletes, or you can compare a "before and after" for one athlete. It also gives you frame by frame ability to focus on very specific parts of movements without…See More

The Learning Benefits of Using Squat Variations

It is widely accepted that the Back Squat is the "king" of all lifts.....or to be fair to the ladies we train, the "royalty" of all lifts. In other words, if you were only allowed to do one lift, the back squat would be it. In just the one movement, it provides major athletic benefits (speed, power, flexibility, balance, and of course strength). In just the one movement, it provides major health/wellness benefits because it develops the biggest concentration of muscles in your body, thus…

3. Support: administrative/management level and financial 

4. Perserverance

If you start with these, then 1 of 3 things has to happen:

Nutrition Activity for Strength & Conditioning

     Over the past several years as we have been developing the physical education department and strength & conditioning program at the school I teach in, we had experimented with different ways on how to incorporate nutrition into the curriculum. Nutrition "seminars" during our summer workout program and various "talks" in our PE classes where large amounts of information were sort of vomitted out, were the methods we chose. But we felt like too many kids were not really applying what…
