Practice What You Preach
A month ago I wrote an article titled “Braces…Where ‘Em On Your Teeth. Keep ‘Em Off Your Knees”. In this article I spoke briefly about the rise in the number of youth athletes wearing knee braces. Then I mentioned the price of prehab (injury preventative training) and compared it to the cost to recover from an anterior cruciate ligament tear. If you have the time, you...

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to train a high school field hockey program. Both the JV and Varsity teams attended the training on separate occasions. As expected, Varsity had better athletes than JV (not always the case in every sports program i.e. Eden Hall Academy JV Hockey. Gordon Bombay’s Ducks are Junior Goodwill Games Gold Medalists). However, one thing that really jumped...

Desire Success. Commit to Success.
In recent years, I have noticed that there’s been an increase in the quantity of today’s “elite” athletes due to an increase in the amount of travel teams, all-star teams, AAU teams, etc. However, there’s been a decrease in the quality of these “elite” athletes amongst these teams. The growing abundance of “Dream Teams” has done nothing but...

OTSS - Only The Strong Survive
Becoming a better athlete is actually a pretty simple process: GET STRONGER! No seriously, it’s really that simple. As the living legend Mike Boyle has said before, “The key to speed is force put into the ground. Force production is what makes people fast.” Now to be clear, I’m not saying that every athlete needs to go squat their house, curl the gallon of milk in their...
This is a clip from 8/14/2010 at the 8th Annual Tom Foley Bench and Deadlift Classic at Premier Fitness in Nanuet, NY. I competed in the WABDL Men’s Juniors 165 lb Class. I deadlifted a personal best 523.5 lbs, won Best Deadlift (based on a pound-for-pound formula), and wound up setting a NY State Record.

Puke is NOT the result of a great workout!
Today I had a new client nearly put his breakfast on display three quarters of the way through his first session. Now I wasn’t exactly surprised as I kind of saw it coming. The heavy sweating and pale face were kind of a dead giveaway. However, in the minutes leading up to the near calamity, I kept reassuring the client that we can take a break if he wasn’t feeling well. Now...

To Blog or Not to Blog?
Well I’ve been debating for a while on the topic of: “To blog, or not to blog? That is the question?” Obviously the answer is that I need to blog. I am a NASM certified personal trainer and my passion is sports performance enhancement. I’ve helped plenty of athletes exceed their goals and perform better than they’ve ever imagined. I’ve also helped plenty of...
