Hope everyone has had a nice week. It was a busy one here at MBSC preparing for the start of the fall session, which began Wednesday. At the end of every session, we like to step back and evaluate how we did and where we can improve for the next session so we are always getting better. So far so good, so it looks like things are going well there.
Things have also been going really well on www.strengthcoach.com. We’ve been having some great forum discussions this week, and the article contributions have been top notch.
Rudy Thomas started us off this week with a piece called Building a Strength and Conditioning Program From the Ground Up. Rudy is coming at this one from the perspective of a collegiate coach, but this will still be helpful for you even if you are working in the private sector because it just provides a good basic framework for staring a well-rounded program. This was Rudy’s second contribution in the last two weeks and we hope to see more in the future.
Next up, Elsbeth Vaino came in with The FMS Results I Have Seen and What They Mean. She takes all of the FMS scores from all of her clients and analyzes them to find trends. It’s some very interesting stuff that you’ll definitely want to check out.
On Tuesday, we actually reposted something that was posted awhile back from Dan John called From The Ground Up, which discusses his Southwood High Junior Weightlifting Program. The beauty of this program lies in the simplicity. It’d been awhile since we had posted it before, but a lot of the new members may not have seen it yet so we decided to run it again and add it to the “Strength Coach Classic” section. After reading, you will understand why.
The video of the week this week came from Mike Perry with a very in-depth tutorial about the kettlebell windmill. This video came as a response to a thread discussing the merits of the windmill, so Mike kindly took the time to show everyone how to do it properly. We are really lucky to have such smart and helpful members that are willing to go above and beyond. If you’re unclear on the windmill exercise, this should help clear a lot of things up.
Last but certainly not least, Charlie Weingroff wrapped things up with his Phase 1 Basketball Training Program. In addition to the program, he also gave some written thoughts about basketball training in general. If you train basketball players at all, you won’t want to miss this. Charlie is the former strength and conditioning coach for the Philadelphia 76ers, so it’s safe to say he knows what he’s talking about.
