MBSC Winter Seminar Lecture Descriptions

Posted in Injuries, Low Back Pain, MBSC News, Seminars, Training, Uncategorized on November 15, 2010 by mboyle1959

People having been asking for specifics about Dan John’s talks at the winter seminar so here they are.

Lecture 1- “The Quadrants: Finally, Clarity in the World of Strength”

What is the impact of the strength coach to sport? Shouldn’t it be obvious? Then, why doesn’t the team with the best gym numbers ALWAYS win? Should a 1,000 pound deadlifter jog, swim and bicycle? Play in a local basketball league? Should a 12 year old boy rest five minutes between his sets of 92% max on his squat?

Lecture 2- “The Role of Hypertrophy and Armor Building”

The Incredible Hulk, Sir Galahad and Bobby Fisher get into a contest. Who wins? How does armor help an athlete and when does it hurt?


If you have never seen Dan talk or read his books, you are in for a treat. I’m looking forward to my own seminar. By the way, my talk will be The Case for Single Leg Training. You will hear the how and the why behind all the junk you read on the internet.

Remember, Saturday February 5th. First 100 registered are $100. Call 781-938-1330.
