Progressing the Lunge for Golfers

Posted by & filed under .

I have a prediction for the beginning of this golf season. Brooks Keopka’s fitness routine and training is going to be criticized in the near future.  He has had two last place finished in his last two starts and is dealing with a wrist injury that no one can allegedly figure out.  I wrote about […]

Proper Strength Development for Athletes

Posted by & filed under .

Strength is one of the most interesting, yet frustrating, topics in terms of physical qualities. When things are good, strength is good. It gets blamed when things are not. We see this a lot in golf. When a player wins a big tournament their fitness usually receives credit but if they aren’t playing well or […]

Creating Clarity in Fitness

Posted by & filed under .

One of our old interns was in the building today because he is on winter break. It is good to catch up with him because he is in the collegiate sector. The different perspective is always good to hear. Recently he did a certification that was very outside of the box. He was in the […]

5 More Exercises to Drive the Golf Ball Further

Posted by & filed under .

I wrote a post back in 2014 about exercises to hit the ball further. Click here to read it. It is always funny to look back at some of my old posts to see if/where I stand on the things I said back then. A lot can change in a short amount of time and […]

Get That Kid in a Weight Room

Posted by & filed under .

A lot of people have a negative perception of strength training. Many also see the benefits of it. One population of athlete that always sees the benefits are the lean/skinny/underweight. Use whatever term you see fit. I actually had this conversation with a friend on Christmas Eve. One of his family friends has a son […]

Airing of Golf Fitness Grievances

Happy Festivus. I hope everyone has their aluminum poles up and are preparing for the feats of strength. I am getting ready to design for this Friday. It is usually something loosely based on the 12 days of Christmas but I prefer Festivus anyway. Its up there with Leif Erikson Day. This year the Airing […]

Can Athletes be Injury Prone?

Posted by & filed under .

We often hear a lot about professional athletes being injury prone. It is very obvious with this group because there are fans tracking their performance. We notice when Gronk isn’t on the field. The Redskins players definitely miss Jordan Reed on the field every year. These athletes are being paid a lot of money and […]

Should Young Athletes Condition?

Posted by & filed under .

Conditioning is one of the most difficult topics to understand. A lot of people do not actually know what conditioning is or how to implement it. There is also a bit of uncertainty between conditioning and punishment. Sometimes the lines get really blurry. Usually when a team doesn’t play or practice well, the coach will […]

Golf Fitness- Building Durability

Posted by & filed under .

This past weekend we got see Tiger return to golf. There’s almost a zero chance I would have watched it if he wasn’t playing. Rickie Fowler’s 61 and front nine 28 just don’t really seem to matter. The Big Cat is back and he looked good. Rusty, but good. The most impressive thing that I […]

What’s the Rush?

Posted by & filed under .

This weekend I was having a good conversation with a coach of Easton Youth Baseball. He has been coaching for a long time and really understands the sport. We were talking a little bit about overuse, field sizes, and development. I remember when I finished Little League and moved to the Babe Ruth League. We […]
