Like every other Monday, here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts, cruising social media and any other continuing ed.
- Working with hockey players? Use the Sled Crossover during the off-season. The Sled Crossover is a staple movement in the offseason for hockey as it is a simple way to improve long term groin health, strengthening the adductors (cross under leg) in an extremely functional way.
- Being positive doesn’t mean you ignore the reality of the situation or sugarcoat what’s happening. It means you don’t let negativity sour things and make them worse. – Jon Gordon (@JonGordon11 on Twitter)
- It should be common sense, but if you want to get fast and/or develop faster teams, you actually have to practice getting fast. Sprint!
- If you are comfortable, you aren’t growing.
- Never forget that S&C at it’s core is about adaptation. Our job is to introduce a stimulus designed to achieve a desirable adaptation to enhance performance. If you start with “what adaptation am I trying to achieve?” You can cut out a lot of junk from your program. – David Neill (@DNeill62 on Twitter).
