Eat Dirt?

Posted in Uncategorized on April 17, 2017 by mboyle1959

This is a great read that will really get you thinking. As a matter of fact, its going to be our next staff book club read.

Here’s a few nuggets from the book:

“ researchers at the California Institute of Technology have estimated that the recent sevenfold to eightfold increase in rates of autoimmune disorders such as Crohn’s Disease, type 1 diabetes, and multiple sclerosis is directly related to the lack of beneficial microbes in our gut”  p 49

“ according to the Environmental Working Group women use an average of 12 personal care products daily, men six…. Just using these personal care products women are exposed to a daily average of 168 chemical ingredients, and men to 85” p 125

Stop Buying Soda

Posted in Uncategorized on April 14, 2017 by mboyle1959

It’s been years since we had soda in our house. It was initially tough to do. I was raised on Pepsi. My dad’s summer job when we were kids was driving a Pepsi truck and making deliveries. However the evidence continues to mount that soda is bad for you and, that the companies know it. Give this a read.

Favorite New Book

Posted in Uncategorized on April 13, 2017 by mboyle1959

We just got done reading Most Likely to Succeed as a staff and, I have to tell you that it was my favorite book of the year. I find myself talking about the concepts every chance I get.

 

Here’s just a few samples of quotes from a book that will make you rethink everything you thought you knew about education.

“in todays world there is no longer a competitive advantage to knowing more than the person next to you because knowledge has become a commodity available to all at the swipe of a finger” p 20

“ Imagine if we relied on our schools to teach kids how to ride bikes. Teachers would lecture and assign reading from bicycle textbooks. Students would stay up late memorizing the various components of a bike. They would be marked down on tests- and lose self confidence for failing to spell derailleur. Some students would excel. Others would struggle. None would ever ride a bike”  p28

Give Most Likely to Succeed a read.

Are You a ” Boyle Guy”?

Posted in Uncategorized on April 8, 2017 by mboyle1959

I love to hear it when someone describes themselves as a “Boyle guy”. In 2012 Kevin Neeld wrote one of the most flattering pieces anyone has ever written about me:

What It Means to Be a Boyle Guy

I didn’t link to this so you can realize what a great guy I am, I’m linking to it as a reminder that if you are or ever have been a Boyle guy than you owe it to yourself to not only keep learning but, to keep helping others.

On my Strengthcoach.com site I can actually see the names of the people that are on the site at any given time on the bottom of my screen. I love when an old interns name pops up.

I’ll be honest, Strengthcoach.com is the place where “Boyle guys” can and should hang out. The opportunity to learn from each other and, to help one another is there for all of us every day.

If you really are a Boyle guy, you owe it to the next young kid to be on the site sharing your experiences.

That’s what we do. We help each other with no expectation of anything in return. The return is the respect you gain from your peers when you give of your time freely, even though we all know time is limited.

Complete Sports Conditioning- Last Day for Discount

Posted in Uncategorized on April 7, 2017 by mboyle1959

OK, today is the last day.

Earlier this week, my new course, Complete Sports Conditioning came out!
I know you’ve been bombarded by emails so, sorry for one more post.
However, there is little quality information available on the internet about real-world conditioning for athletes but, there are a lot of gimmicks, misinformation and training methods being called ‘conditioning’ . I found it surprising how much conflicting information was out there and also how there wasn’t a go-to resource on conditioning.
So, I was “coerced” into making a product that addressed a lot of the shortcomings.
I have repeatedly experimented with my own athletes (in every sport), and took that information and tried to create and describe the most effective system that would get the best results.
You can check out the details here:

The Complete Sports Conditioning program will show you…

  • How you actually assess conditioning
  • What I think the best conditioning tests actually are
  • How to improve conditioning & fitness levels…without losing speed
  • What it really means to have great conditioning
  • How to make your athletes better through conditioning while your competition simply makes them tired
  • What sort of training methods elicit the conditioning results you are looking for
  • How to optimize your conditioning programming for each specific sport
  • Why much of what has been taught recently about conditioning is complicated and wrong…and how you can simplify things and get even better results.
If you work with athletes and want to improve their conditioning, Check this out (and save $100 during the special release). This special offer ends tonight, Friday April 7th: www.completeconditioning.com

Complete Sports Conditioning

Posted in Uncategorized on April 3, 2017 by mboyle1959
So, here’s what happened…
 
Pat Beith from Athletes Acceleration originally asked me who the go-to coach was when it came to sports conditioning…it was a good question and I didn’t have a great answer. 
 
Pat came back and said he had approached other top coaches and asked them the same question. They answered with my name (which surprised me a little bit). Then he asked me if I would create a total conditioning program for athletes, since there isn’t a great resource out there and he thought it was needed in our industry.
 
I thought about it and actually became excited about putting a program together. 
 
I have spoken many times on conditioning and have tried lots of  ‘conditioning’ options with our athletes in a variety of sports. Also, I realized just how important this information is to get out there to other coaches.
 
So that’s how this program came about. It became a much bigger project than I expected. I spent days just putting the lecture slides together. 
 
I am thrilled how Complete Sports Conditioning came out and I am sure you will be happy too.
 
My goal was to clear up the confusion and provide coaches with the perfect conditioning program that will fit their needs. I believe I accomplished this goal.
