I’m a big Max Shank fan. Smart guy and crazy pound for pound strength. Max has published his first book and was kind enough to send me an advance copy. There is some stuff I liked, some stuff I wasn’t sure about and some stuff that made me think. That makes for great reading.

My 1000th Post

Posted in Uncategorized on December 4, 2014 by mboyle1959

I realized that this post is number 1000 for me. Amazing. Anthony Renna ( www.strengthcoachpodcast.com) talked me into blogging four or five years ago and now we have 1000 posts and are approaching 2 million views ( about 1.8 million as of today). Just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who has read and subscribed.

It’s funny. I have 5000 Facebook friends, give or take a few, and almost 25,000 Twitter followers.  If I include blog readers, there might be 20,000 separate readers/ subscribers. In spite of this, I might be one of the worst internet marketing guys around. StrengthCoach.com is probably the best value in the sports training, personal training and physical therapy world and I don’t tell people that enough.

I spend time every day answering members questions as do guys like Alwyn Cosgrove, Charlie Weingroff and a host of others. I can’t think of a better bang for the buck resource, not because I am a partner but, because the value is high. Take a minute and check out the site. The biggest problem you will run into is that there is too much info. Not a bad problem I guess.

Giving Thanks

Posted in Uncategorized on November 27, 2014 by mboyle1959

The hardest part about giving thanks is hoping not to miss someone.

I’m thankful for my wife Cindy, my children Mark and Michaela, Bob and Diane, Carrie, all our amazing staff, friends, family, and all the amazing athletes ( and some non-athletes) that I get to work with.

If I missed you I’m sorry. I’m really thankful to be living a dream every day.

Are You Doing Right By Your Child?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on November 24, 2014 by mboyle1959

Heres a great article from John O’Sullivan called The Tipping Point in Youth Sports. Read it and then ask yourself if you are doing the right thing for your child or simply listening to the self-professed experts. My wife and I moved our 9 year old back to town hockey from a higher level team so he could score more goals and have more fun. The “select team” was not fun and he dreaded both practice and games. This year he looks forward to everything. Don’t be afraid to admit you may have made a mistake, just correct it. I love my friend Kevin Neeld’s concept of being one of the five best players on your team. If your child ( male or female) is not one of the five best players on their team, move them down a level. Kids get engaged by success, not competition. A child who can’t find the time and space in hockey will not have fun. Let them develop at their own rate, not at yours or your neighbors. Also, encourage lots of free play and creativity. My good friend and NHL’er Scott Gomez told me once that he tells kids at camp to “never dump the puck in. Try to beat someone. Make a great move.” Scott knew that at higher levels sometimes creativity is discouraged. As kids we need to encourage it.
