A Story (about a wrestler…)

October 22, 2006

A Story:

I like stories that make people think. I love stories that can change behaviors.

I sometimes tell this story to my athletes and clients who I think “need to hear it.”

This is not my story; this is a hand-me-down story from my high school wrestling coach which I never forgot.. He tells it better, but I will do my best to get the story, and most importantly the point across. Read the rest of this entry »

10 of the Best Ways to injure yourself while training

October 18, 2006

Much like my former article outlining the best ways to become a fat, physical mess, this article outlines some of the best ways to become injured while you train. Although to some the sarcastic tone of such writings is a turn off, I have found it to be a very good educational approach and one that gets the point across pretty well.

So if you really want to injure yourself while training or working out, make sure you do some or all of what is listed below. Chances are, you are doing some of these things anyway. (By the way, if you want to stay healthy, please avoid all of the list below). Read the rest of this entry »

Training Goals…What are yours?

October 18, 2006

When you walk into you gym or training center of choice, do you have clear goals of why you are there and what you are going to accomplish?

“Tape those ankles tighter” …High Ankle Sprains…

October 16, 2006



Lately we are seeing a lot more high ankle sprains than ever before. With players being in better shape, stronger, faster, and more athletic, one would assume that those numbers should not be going up.

I have heard people make comments about taping ankles, and if ankles were taped tighter and better, than maybe we would see LESS of these sprains. Having taped probably 1000’s of ankles in my time, I would have to say that I disagree that taping is the answer for preventing ankle sprains, in fact, I will say that taping may be the reason we are seeing so many more high ankle sprains.

Things to Help You Feel Better (Physically)

October 12, 2006

I take it for granted that people out there know and understand the value in using common things to help their body feel better and ultimately, heal.

The more I talk to people, the more I realize that people don’t really know what to do when they are hurting or when they have some long lasting aches, pains and soreness.

Not Getting Enough Sleep, Still Fat?? Here’s Why….

October 11, 2006

Losing those extra pounds may be more than just exercise and diet.

Since the time you were young, you probably heard someone in your family tell you that you need plenty of rest. “Go to bed early”, “get a good nights sleep”. We have all heard those things and yet, we still stayed out late, got up early, and survived on low levels of energy from lack of sleep. We were also young enough to handle it.

As time goes on, sleep is more and more important, especially if you are trying to drop some body fat and lose unwanted pounds. Read the rest of this entry »
