Perhaps

Tasha Louie   Perhaps you don’t lack mobility. Perhaps you aren’t weak. Perhaps, there’s nothing wrong with you or how you move. Perhaps, you haven’t trained, used, or practiced your mobility/strength/coordination like you did when you were younger. Perhaps, you’ve out trained, used, or practiced other aspects of your physical ability than your mobility/strength/coordination as […]

*True* Sport Specific Training

Austin Einhorn   We incorrectly assume certain lifts are sport-specific because they involve the same limb used in competition—logical but way too generic. For example, someone might argue, “Compared to a knee extension machine, squatting is sport-specific [literally, pick any sport] because it involves multiple leg joints and the sport involves multiple leg joints.” If […]

Calisthenics Strength Training Principles

Fanny Skin Cat

Fanny Tulloch   What is this thing you call “Calisthenics Strength training”? The definition of the word Calisthenics varies greatly. If you ask Wikipedia it says the words Kallos and Sthenos comes from the Greek and means Beauty and Strength (great mental strength, courage, strength, determination). “It is the art of using one’s body weight as resistance in order to develop physique”. Further on it […]

Swings, Techniques, and Design

Vbfeat

Austin Einhorn   THIS ARTICLE IS ONLY ABOUT TWO THINGS, REALLY. IT’S ABOUT HOW THE HUMAN ORGANISM IS DESIGNED AND HOW IT LEARNS. Since sports require skills, improving them is perhaps the one thing coaches are responsible for, by the current definition of the role. However, most coaches know almost nothing about the topic. A […]

On Parenting & Fitness

Andrebaby

Andre Miller   I was three years into my career as a personal trainer when I first seriously started considering the impact of parenting on fitness. A middle aged couple I was training made an offhand comment chatting after a workout, “People that are our age who don’t have kids are weird.” I took the […]

Bookend

Feature photo morzaszum from Pixabay.   WHAT ARE THE BOOKENDS OF YOUR PERSONAL PRACTICE? How do you begin your training sessions?  How do you know when you are done?   For me, it’s hard to tell an end when everywhere I go I see things to hang or dance on.  In my Jam sessions I tend to […]
