I was just interviewed for NFL.com in a great article on the history of combine training. Take a second and read it if you get the chance.
Saturday March 28th we will be doing a Certified Functional Strength Coach course in Rhode Island. The reviews on these courses have been amazing.

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.

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 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
Another good article on the sporting version of the Race to Nowhere from the NY Times.
Fun fact. Pat Aufiero of Winchester, Ma ( former MBSC clients and husband of current MBSC client Meghan) sent me this article. Quoted in the article is MBSC client and noted youth sports expert Bob Bigelow ( also of Winchester and father of MBSC staff member Steve Bigelow). How’s that for one degree of separation.
