My Top 10

If my life were to end tomorrow in some sort of fiery automobile or airplane crash and I was to list the 10 most important parts of my workout life; or if due to this rapid change of events I was to be limited to only doing 10 different exercises or activities for the rest […]

Simple Planning For Base Fitness

I feel like a total wanker of late.  Maybe less wanker and more poser. Yesterday I was cleared to ride my bike for the first time in 6 weeks.  So I did.  Left hand completely restrained in my splint, only able to balance it on my handle bar.  Baby stepping it off the curbs. My […]

What Type of Stretching Routine Should I Do?

“What Type of Stretching Routine Should I Do?” We get that a lot and to be completely frank and honest, I don’t know. I would start with; do something appropriate for your ability and background and make sure that it adequately prepares your body for what it is going to be doing. How about that? […]

Know Your Purpose

You know what most people are doing dead wrong about what they do when they train? They don’t have a clue what they are doing or why. Few things drive me as crazy as when I watch someone ripping or bagging on another because they think what they are doing is stupid, inane or just […]

Down but not yet out…

At least I don’t think so. You had  rough couple of weeks?  Me too. No doubt others out there have had it much tougher and certainly some much more tragic.  This is my world though, my pain and in this particular situation my blog so I’m gonna lay it out for you with my sad […]

I hammer myself, I hammer my athletes and I do my best to instil it in the people who work for me. “Nail the basics and never forget that consistency is king.” A whole lot has been accomplished in this world by those who stayed true to that mantra.  Some were fated for greatness but […]

What Is Your Excuse?

I hear them everyday, it has been accepted as part of my job. I used to take it personally and let it get under my skin, now I just pity the person. Not from a place of arrogance, as arrogant as that sounds, but honest to god genuine pity for the person. Who wants to […]

The Drive From Inside

I played soccer in high school, we were 4 time state champs and I believe I started 1 game in my entire varsity career. It was senior night. I was voted most “inspirational” player my senior year. Freaking-A story of my life. Hard worker, pulling for others, but just not all that great. I suppose […]

Was You First Coach Good Enough? Part Deux

Why part two?  Because I went completely tangent on part I and never got around to making a point.  If I am not careful I will end up there again.   Definition of a vocation “Where your great joy meets the world’s great needs” Eric Greitens Tufts University Commencement Address 2012 I have no idea […]
