The WUSSification of Today’s Youth

Recently, I have been involved in instances of parents literally coddling their children when they do not get what they want. I coach various sports in addition to training athletes in the gym. I have had a few parents complain because their precious “cargo” was not getting to play the position they thought he/she should be playing. Most of the time, these same parents have never coached a sport. In some instances, they NEVER even played a sport growing up to begin with. The problem today is our society is such that if you don’t get your way, you are basically raised that you don’t go out and work harder to achieve your goal, you instead complain, groan, or get mommy and daddy to go do … Read entire article »

Add a Strongman Day to Your Routine

In most local high schools, most sports teams don’t have their own dedicated Strength Coaches. This can be good or bad, depending on who the person is that is running your offseason program and what their level of knowledge is on training. Many times, the head coach of your sport is also running your offseason weight training and conditioning program. In many of these cases, the offseason program is some cookie cutter routine bought from a local college program, or something they found on the internet. This is the problem with how many athletes are being prepared for their upcoming season. As we all know, everyone is different, and most importantly has different weaknesses and imbalances that must be addressed. Having a room full of … Read entire article »
