A Great Speed Training Resource

Posted in Seminars, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training, Training Females, Youth Training with tags , , on February 9, 2015 by mboyle1959

I was sent the new Complete Speed Training program last week and I got a chance to go through it this weekend.

I respect what Lee Taft does in this program (and also recommend you go see him present at the PerformBetter events).

If you work with speed & power athletes, you should check out this program.

-> Complete Speed Training

Complete Speed Training is geared towards coaches and focuses on teaching (the why’s and how’s), instead of just throwing hundreds of drills at you.

Lee presents his latest speed & agility training methods in this new course. I don’t directly promote a lot of programs, so when I do, I make sure it isn’t a waste of your time.

Since you’re a learner like me, you will want to see what other top coaches are doing. If you want to get your clients or athletes quicker and faster, I suggest you give this program a look – Complete Speed Training

Do We Need More Certifications

Posted in MBSC News, Media, Seminars, Strength Coach Podcast, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training, Training Females with tags , on December 5, 2014 by mboyle1959

I wrote this last week for the Perform Better Newsletter

“The past five years has seen a large rise in certification courses in the fitness industry. All kinds of fitness companies are jumping on the certification band wagon. You can get certified in any number of things by an ever-increasing number of groups.

This leads us back to the question in the title. Do we need more certifications? My answer is no, we don’t need more certifications. I’m sure you think that’s a strange response as Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning has just launched the Certified Functional Strength Coach certification. To be honest, I don’t think we need more certification courses, we just need better certification courses.”

Have You Seen Functional Strength Coach 5?

Posted in Core training, Hockey, Injuries, Low Back Pain, MBSC News, Media, Seminars, Strength Coach Podcast, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training, Training Females, Youth Training with tags , , on June 27, 2014 by mboyle1959

Every once in a while it pays to ask. Have you seen Functional Strength Coach 5? Take a look at what one of our former MBSC Mentorship attendees had to say about Functional Strength Coach 5.

In an information age that can easily confuse and overload (as well as break the bank of) the less experienced coach/trainer, Functional Strength Coach 5 is 7 hours of information that will simplify the process. It will put the less experienced on a path of Mike Boyle’s philosophies that have proven to be successful on every level. You will find yourself saying “this stuff finally makes sense” and gain more confidence in your abilities to train others. Even though I have studied and implemented Mike’s system for 13 years, I found many more tweaks that will make my coaching better. I also found myself motivated to “stay the course” and realize good fundamental philosophies should always be the backbone of any good program. Thanks Mike for sharing so much priceless information in Functional Strength Coach 5. Sean Ross, Ross Strength and Speed

Just got back from an amazing trip to China but, yesterday was the worst travel day of my life and I’ve done some crazy travel.

Left Shandong Province in China at 8:30 AM China time on Tue ( 8:30 PM Monday night in Boston if you want to keep track)
Drove 1 hour to the high speed train station
Took 1.5 hour high speed train ride to Beijing ( picture is fuzzy but thats 294 KPH)
2014-05-25 19.02.34

Drove 1 hour from Beijing train station to the Beijing Airport
Flew 13 hours to Detroit, departing at 4:50 PM China time ( over the Polar ice cap) Arrived at 5:40 EST, still Tue ( like getting in a time machine, you travel back in time).
Two hour layover in Detroit turned into 4.
Boarded flight from Detroit to Boston. Arrived at 11:20 PM EST.
Drove 30 minutes to home. Arrived at 12:10.
Elapsed time from start to finish, 27.5 hours.

It’s great to be home.

The plus side is I made some great friends. I want to thanks Tom, Sarah, Dr Liu, Dr Zhiang ( hope I spelled it right) and everyone else who made my trip so amazing.2014-05-26 19.20.12

The Slow Death of Dump and Chase Hockey

Posted in Guest Authors, Hockey, MBSC News, Media, Random Thoughts, Seminars, Training, Training Females, Youth Training with tags , on April 10, 2014 by mboyle1959

This is another great read for youth hockey coaches and youth hockey parent from the legendary Jack Blatherwick.

The best analogy in all these articles is to imagine a basketball coach screaming “pass it to the other team and defend”. How silly does that sound? That’s hockey coaching at the U-10 level some days?

If you really want your kid to be good:

1- play 1/2 ice early and often.

2- find a coach who doesn’t care about winning

3- find a coach passionate about offense who will tolerate mistakes

I have a friend in an NHL front office who said “we only draft offensive players. We can make offensive players into defensive players with good coaching in the minors but we can never make defensive players into offensive players”.
