This Week on StrengthCoach.com


Over the last month I have fallen hopelessly behind in my updates but, the site has continued to roll along. In fact, the forum posts and number of people logging on and using the site is at an all time high. Because I am a week behind I will try to catch you up on everything today. Please be sure to log on and check all this info out.

The first article up from the week of  August 16th was: Our “A.C.L.” Problem in Womens’ Sports this was another piece from Brett Klika of Fitness Quest 10.

Next up was:Perform Better, Long Beach, 2010 this was Laree Drapers review of her experience at the Perform Better Summit for those of you who are unfamiliar with Laree, she has spent the last year editing Never Let Go from Dan John, Movement by Gray Cook and my newest book Advances in Functional Training

Next up was : Episode 62- Strength Coach Podcast this was a great episode with an interview with Charlie Weingroff. The more I read and listen to Charlie’s stuff, the more impressed I am. The podcasts are free even if you are not a site member so, don’t miss Charlie’s discussion of shoulder rehab.

Video of the week : Video of the Week – RFE Split Squat Jump although we have had a bunch of video of this particular exercise this video is a great one to show proper movement under load.

The next series of articles was for the week of August 23rd through the 27th and will bring us up to this week.

The TRX Big Five was an article I wrote for the folks at TRX to be used in some advertising campaigns. Anthony and I just discussed the article on Episode 63 of the Strength Coach Podcast. The article simply shows what we at MBSC consider to be the best 5 TRX exercises we use.

Next up was Lessons on Leadership  from the Pros by Kevin Kneeld. Kevin actually wrote this for our sister site  www.hockeystrengthandconditioning.com but, I liked it so much we used it on both sites. The article describes Kevin’s experiences working with NHL strength and conditioning coaches and the lessons he learned.

Video of the Week was a Double Kettlebell Swing . This was a great example of how we are getting some of our stronger athletes to continue to be able to swing once we get past our 32K kettlebell. This caused a little bit of forum activity but, remember, we aren’t kettlebell people, we just use kettlebells.

The long list of articles continues with Never a Line at the Free Weights by Bruce Kelly. Bruce has become a frequent contributor who just writes about what he sees and does in a really enjoyable way. This article is what I would call “typical Bruce” observing the human condition. I think I like Bruce’s stuff because he is my age and sees things through a similar lens.

As you can see, we overdelivered the past few weeks. In addition to everything above Anthony was nice enough to get Charlie Weingroff to put some of his thoughts from the podcast in writing. Anthony simply posted it as Follow Up to Podcast Episode 62- Post Shoulder Rehab.

In the spirit of overdelivery we also posted Alwyn Cosgrove’s Hierarchy of Fat Loss. I frequently refer to this article and realized that it was not on the site. Alwyn was kind enough to provide it. If you deal with fat loss clients, read this article and then read it again. In my mind it is the best , most common sense, article on the subject.

The last article we posted last week was another I wrote called Conditioning Under-reaction/ Overreaction. This ties in nicely with a recent froum post and also with Episode 63 of the Strength Coach Podcast with Coach David Tenney. Rather than write a long forum response I have taken to writing articles in some cases. This one deal with the idea that we may need more aerobic training. I know that will make many of you curious.

Finally we posted Shuffle to Crossover as video of the week. This clip shows how we integrate our shuffle action with our crossover mechanics into one drill. Just do me a favor. Make sure your athletes have mastered both shuffle and crosover before you do this one.

In addition, we added a conference announcement for Vertical Core with Todd Wright and crew. This one is Sept 9-11th. To register call Max at 512-794-2800.

I know this is a lot so, if you haven’t been on the site recently, make sure you log in and read today.
