Meet Donald. He’s 38, a basketball player, an avid shoe enthusiast, works three part-time jobs and is committed to reaching his fitness goals.
The truth is, if your player is in a good program that is tailored to them, then strength training and conditioning can be powerful in helping their performance in-season on the field or court. In breaking down this parent’s question as it pertained to her son, here are five reasons why I said “yes” he can and should be training.
We are probably all way too familiar with ladder drills. Most of us may recall doing countless rounds of them during high school or college practices back in the day. In the modern world of workouts are these drills still relevant?
I have many coaches ask me how they can properly incorporate ladders into their workouts and question what benefits they have for their athletes.
The push up movement is one that I see many of our members struggle with. It isn’t because they are not capable of doing them.
I think most of the time they struggle because they are not aware of what a proper push up should look like.
We are here to direct you on the right path to doing a shoulder friendly and strong abdominal push up.
Let’s dive into 3 common mistakes that we see our members make when they are trying their push ups.
An area often over looked until its too late is pre-workout and post-workout snacks. Today, we will discuss the importance of eating a snack or a quick meal before heading to workout along with some ideas to provide the nutrients your body needs to perform at high levels.
Today I am going to provide the second part of my “shoulder saving tips,” which are my shoulder do’s. Again, this two-part series is in response to numerous questions I get each week from patients and clients as well as from my observations in watching people at the gym.
As we see more and more shoulder injuries in our clinic, one of the places our patients commonly hurt their shoulder is at the gym.
Unfortunately, what people do not know or realize is there are common exercises and approaches that many perform at the gym that may set people up for an injury.
Are We Missing the mark as Parents and Coaches?
I have the great fortune to be around sports every day. Professionally I work with young, injured athletes and help them get back to competing with their teams again. Personally, I have a young son who has started the process of playing organized sports. Being a physical therapist for many years, I am in a unique position where I have contact with a variety of different people and organizations that are involved in a vast spectrum of sports all across Omaha.
