Confusing headline? I hope it makes you read this.

Athletes Are Made In the Off-Season

If your child is a hockey player from 6-15 PLEASE don’t sign them up for spring and summer leagues! The only people who need spring and summer leagues are rink operators and league operators. ALL THE EVIDENCE SAYS NO.

The Disease of Me

Posted in Hockey, MBSC News, Strength Coach Podcast, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training, Training Females, Youth Training with tags , , on February 17, 2015 by mboyle1959

I love coaching books. Pat Riley’s The Winner Within was a great read. Riley obviously knows a lot about winning. I think the Disease of Me concept from his book actually applies more to hockey, than to basketball as goal scorers are coveted early and spoiled early. They get constant praise and very little coaching as coaches fear the defection of their precious scorer.

Are you coaching a kid that has The Disease of Me? The only cure is honesty.

Hacking Chipotle

Posted in Fat Loss, MBSC News, Nutrition, Training Females with tags , on February 14, 2015 by mboyle1959

I picked up a Chipotle menu that had nutrition info on the back so, I figured I’d share a few fun facts.

  • Get a bowl! The tortilla wrapping for a burrito is 300 cal. Three tacos is 210.
  • Easy on the cheese + sour crème. 2 oz of sour crème is 115 cal, 1 oz of cheese is 100.
  • NO CHIPS. 4 oz of chips is 570 cal.
  • Water or at worst a diet drink. 32 oz of soda is approx. 400 cal

Do the math. If you get a burrito with chips and drink you get 1270 extra calories.

If you get a bowl with no chips and a water you save 1270 calories!

A burrito bowl with:

Brown Rice 200 cal

Carnitas         210 cal

Sour crème 115 cal

Cheese         100 cal

Guac             200 cal

Totals up to 835 cal.

 

Add the flour tortilla, chips and soda and jump to a whopping 2005 cal. Ouch.

A Great Speed Training Resource

Posted in Seminars, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training, Training Females, Youth Training with tags , , on February 9, 2015 by mboyle1959

I was sent the new Complete Speed Training program last week and I got a chance to go through it this weekend.

I respect what Lee Taft does in this program (and also recommend you go see him present at the PerformBetter events).

If you work with speed & power athletes, you should check out this program.

-> Complete Speed Training

Complete Speed Training is geared towards coaches and focuses on teaching (the why’s and how’s), instead of just throwing hundreds of drills at you.

Lee presents his latest speed & agility training methods in this new course. I don’t directly promote a lot of programs, so when I do, I make sure it isn’t a waste of your time.

Since you’re a learner like me, you will want to see what other top coaches are doing. If you want to get your clients or athletes quicker and faster, I suggest you give this program a look – Complete Speed Training

Great Follow up Video on Full Ice Hockey

Posted in Hockey, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training, Training Females, Youth Training with tags on December 31, 2014 by mboyle1959

Take a few minutes and watch this “full ice” video from USA Hockey before you demand that your kid play in a “real game”.

Full Ice?

Are You Filling Buckets?

Posted in Random Thoughts, Strength Coach Podcast, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training, Training Females, Youth Training on December 15, 2014 by mboyle1959

I wrote this in 2012 for StrengthCoach.com, it’s based on a kids book called Have You Filled a Bucket Today? Are you filling or dipping?
