Quoting Ashton Kutcher?

Posted in Guest Authors, Random Thoughts, Training Females, Youth Training on August 27, 2013 by mboyle1959

It’s not very often I get the urge to quote someone like Ashton Kutcher but I’ll make an exception:

“the sexiest thing in the world is being really smart. And being thoughtful and really generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell you to make you feel like less, so don’t buy it. Be smart, be thoughtful, be generous.”

Greg Rose on Long Term Athletic Development

Posted in Guest Authors, MBSC News, Media, Seminars, Strength Coach Podcast, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training, Training Females, Uncategorized, Youth Training with tags , , on August 6, 2013 by mboyle1959

This is a great presentation by my friend Greg Rose on Long Term Athletic Development. The presentation is based on golf but this could be baseball, hockey or any other sport. Listen to this and you will realize that most “experts” are wrong  and aren’t really experts at all, just entrepreneurs who want your money.

I would put these two episodes into the “must listen” category. I actually listened to both of Al’s episodes twice.

Are There No Bad Exercises?

“There are no bad exercises, just bad application”

I like the guy that wrote this but, vigourously disagree. Here’s a list of some bad exercises. Feel free to add your own.

Bad Exercises

Bench Dips-  the bench dip position is a terrible position to put the shoulder joint in. There is no way around it. A bad exercise.

Dips- ditto for above. Just because a few people can do them and not get hurt doesn’t make it a good exercise. I used to love dips and have the scar to prove it. PS, I did them perfect so don’t tell me they are OK if you do them correctly.

Behind the Neck Pulldown- Trying to pull something down behind the heads place too much external rotation on the shoulder. Another bad exercise that no one should ever do again.

Most machine lower body exercises- Leg press, leg extension, leg curl? Need I go on. Leg Press? If you are on your back pushing up with your feet in any sport I know you are in a real bad spot. Sitting down to kick? Heels to butt while lying on your stomach?

I think there are actually a lot of bad exercises. Just one man’s opinion.
