Yes, the title is a joke. This is another great female strength clip. As I have said for years, our female athletes suffer from low expecations and lack of role models. Neghar is a great role model because she is extremely strong and has developed a physique that most women would aspire to.

The last few years Art Horne and Dan Boothy over at Northeastern University have put on an amazing seminar in the late spring. Art and Dan really have their finger on the pulse in the area of sports medicine and performance training and bring in speakers that you might not have heard yet. Think about it as seeing a breakout band before they hit the big arenas. This spring is no different. Make sure you save May 19th and 20th for what I think is the fourth annual BSMPG Conference.

Presenters include:

Joel Jamieson

Sean Skahan

Pete Freisen

Craig Liebenson and many others.

If you regularly read this blog you know how I feel kids specializing in one sport too early. I continue to search out the best athletes and find their stories. I can tell you that it is rare that I find a professional athlete who says “my parents pushed me to choose one sport and that is why I am here today”. This is a great read on Jacoby Ellsbury and is more evidence that great athletes are mutli-sport athletes first.
