The Past Week on

Sorry, it’s Thursday and I’m just getting to our “Past Week email”. I guess it must be the holiday on Monday. The premier education events of the year begin this week and 700 serious professionals will be in Providence starting tomorrow. If you are curious about who is speaking or struggling with who to see I have some advice for you. This year we also have our first member social which is pretty nice.

Handicapping the Perform Better Summit – Providence

First article up is An Apology Letter to Personal Trainers This is a repost of an old article but, a recent forum post brought it up and I realized how few readers had actually seen it.

Next is Joe Kenn’s review of the CSCCA Conference.  Joe wrote this for his blog and was kind enough to allow me to reprint it. The CSCCA is the years premier event for collegiate strength coaches.

We also have added a video explaining more recent developments with the NSCA. The NSCA continues it’s battle with me and is now taking your CEU’s away.

Last up is MBSC-Inside Out from Matt Smith.  Matt is the only person to attend a mentorship and then follow up as an intern,

If you haven’t been on the site this week, make sure you log on and check out another excellent week of articles.

Video of the Week

Video of the Week comes from Dewey Nielsen. Dewey shows some great TRX lower body exercises .This may have gone up at the end of last week so take a look if you missed it.

Make sure you check out the StrengthCoach Podcast this week Anthony gets our email campaign started to get CEU’s reinstated for my talks. Don’t miss this one. Also when you are done, please send an email. We need to let the NSCA know how wrong they are.

We are hoping for 1000 emails. If you haven’t emailed please do as the NSCA continues to move in the wrong direction on this. We got a response from the board but, it looks to me like it was written by an NSCA lawyer.

Please continue to email the board members and CC the Strength Coach Podcast:

You can use the letter below or right your own:

Dear NSCA Board,

As a dues paying member of the NSCA, I would like to express my disappointment in the NSCA’s recent decision to no longer approve courses by Michael Boyle for continuing education credits.  Boyle’s education and experience certainly make him qualified to provide quality information that is valuable to all NSCA members.  The decision to discontinue the NSCA CEU’s for any of Boyle’s previously approved talks appears to be a punitive measure not related to educational content and appears to contradict the NSCA’s mission statement “to disseminate research based knowledge and it’s practical applications”.

I am asking that you reconsider your decision and reinstate Michael Boyle’s courses for continuing education credits.

Thank You.
