Is ACL injury prevention just good training? I think so. The program we use for ACL injury prevention is actually the same program we use with everyone! The truth is ACL injury prevention programs often consist more of packaging than new concepts. Calling a program an ACL prevention program may be nothing more than a way into the head of the athletic trainer, physical therapist or coach. But, if that’s what it takes, I’m all for it. However, as coaches we have to realize that we should be practicing great injury prevention concepts with all our athletes and our weekend warriors.

Because female athletes are much more likely to be injured, those who coach female athletes tend to be more interested in the concept of ACL injury prevention. However, obviously both genders can be injured. In fact, estimates run to over 100,000 ACL tears per year, with 30,000 of them high school age females. In any case, coaches should still practice these injury reduction concepts with both male and female athletes. Then again, ACL injury prevention may be the thought that gets your women’s basketball coach to buy into the program.

New DVD’s- Finally

About six months ago I set out to film my three most popular lectures. It took a while to get everything done but hey are finally available for sale.

ACL Reduction was filmed at the MBSC Winter Seminar in 2010 and looks at ACL prevention from a training standpoint. This is about a 50 minute lecture that outlines a multi-step program of training to prevent ACL injury. I can tell you that it is better than any of the ACL prevention programs I have seen marketed commercially.

Training the Overweight Client documents the steps I took to help a client lose over 100 lbs. in three months. This is a real common sense lecture that looks at the real problems with obese clients. Don’t expect any watered down “go for a walk” stuff or any Biggest Loser stupidity from this one. I actually gave this lecture in 2008 and 2009 on the Perform Better tour.

Hips and Hernias will appeal to the athletic training and physical therapy crowd. This lecture is the same one I gave to the NHL Strength and Conditioning Coaches in 2010 as well as at a few sports medicine seminars. Hips and hernias looks at the near epidemic of sports hernia and hip surgery in sport and how to prevent it.

Take a look. I think you’ll like all three. If you are a Body By Boyle OnLine member, save your money. They will be up on the site soon as a value added feature.
