Eight Lessons for Leading Kids from Derek Jeter’s Dad

I was lucky enough to meet Derek Jeter during my two years with the Red Sox and was impressed by his humility. He walked up to me and said ” hi I’m Derek” as if I might not know. If you read this you’ll understand where his values came from.

How Exercise Keeps Us Young

Thanks to my friend Craig Liebenson  and the NY Times for this.

How Exercise Keeps Us Young

The bottom lie here is that with training what we view as aging is very preventable. We age more from disuse than use. Smart training can keep us moving well into our eighties. If you read the article you will see that the inclusion of strength training ( like an adult group session or a 1-1 session at MBSC) would solve the strength/ power loss.

Many people will consider this alarmist but read it anyway.

Every time I hear about someone running to the doctor for a Z-Pack I think of this. I might use antibiotics once every two to three years.


USOC Formula for Developing Elite Athletes

Posted in Uncategorized on January 2, 2015 by mboyle1959

I am going to hammer this topic to death. Read this report form the USOC about elite athlete development ( thanks to Michelle Amidon of USA Hockey for passing so much of this stuff along).

Read down to the sub heading Implication

“The findings indicate that Olympians were involved in an average of three sports per year until age 14, which belies the notion that early specialization is critical to long-term success.”

Did you read that? Three sports per year until at least 14. That is the key to success. Don’t believe fake experts who have never developed an Olympian.
