I am the Head Trainer of EM Speed and Power Training. We are always looking for good trainers who are willing to learn and grow. We train all sports and all ages. Trainers would need to work out of the Inland Empire, Orange County, or Los Angeles.
Some wise words of wisdom and some real food for thought from Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz: “Grow with discipline. Balance intuition with rigor. Innovate around the core. Don’t embrace status quo. Find new ways to see. Never expect a silver bullet. Get your hands dirty. Listen with empathy and overcommunicate with transparency. Tell your story, refusing to let others define you. Use authentic experiences to…Continue

A couple of weeks ago when going through some old computer files I came across an article I wrote on the USA Track & Field (Then known as TAC) Coaching Education program. This weekend I will be going to the USOTC in Chula Vista for some planning meetings on the coaching education program. As I have gotten back involved over the last eighteen months I have become increasingly aware of how few people know the history…Continue

Focus clearly only on what needs to be done to get training results that translate in competition performance. This demands focus on the training tasks that are meaningful. Eliminate the nice to do activities that make you tired but don’t make you better. It is so trite to say but less is more. Find out what works and keep fine-tuning and tweaking that to achieve continual adaptation. Variety and variation for the sake…Continue

What's your reaction to this?
The mythos of Jadeveon Clowney grows larger each day.

Oblique strains and pulls and intercostals strains are injuries that you seldom saw or heard of fifteen to twenty years ago. The two injuries are different injuries; I think one mistake is to group them together. Now they are both a very common occurrence in baseball both…Continue
Effective coaching is about sending and receiving messages. Notice I said sending and receiving. It is a two way process. Effective messages are clear, on point and brief. The message should be conveyed with appropriate emotion and content that elicits the desired action…Continue

From the article posted on Men's Health News:
It isn’t the fastest recorded time ever at the NFL Draft Combine, but 4.50 seconds in the 40-yard dash is still blazing. Add that speed to a 6’3”, 248-pound defensive end like Seattle Seahawks first-round pick Bruce Irvin—who was the fastest lineman clocked in 2012—and you create a nightmare for quarterbacks.
There are no shortcuts, crash programs or quick fixes that will get you there faster. You will always have to pay the piper whether it is sooner or later. It is better to pay up front by being very thorough in the development process with a balanced program that builds a solid foundation. All components of fitness must be trained at all times of the training year and the career, just the proportion and emphasis changes…Continue

I know these posts can be annoying to some, but I'm currently searching for an internship either within the collegiate or professional realm.
As for a little about me, I recently graduated from Saginaw Valley State University (Michigan) with a Bachelor's of Kinesiology degree. While there I volunteered 100 hours with the strength and conditioning department and also was a member of the varsity baseball team. For the last 3 seasons, I was a middle infield coach, also running my…Continue
Many people with low back pain and Desk jobs will find that their Glutes are hard to activate. When the glutes are hard to activate, the Adductors take the brunt of the work which will lead to trigger points and imbalances in the Hips. Try taking a couple weeks off your lower body training and focus on cleaning the hips up with these basic exercises.
Dynamic Warm Up
Posterior Hip Capsule Stretch [2:2min] each leg

Good effective coaching demands a careful blend of art AND science. It is not an either or proposition. Modern coaching necessitates that the coach have a sound foundation in sports science which means the coach is educated in sports science, but is not a sport scientist. You can learn the science in school or by reading, you can’t learn to coach in a classroom, online or in a book. You must get out and practice…Continue
