Using Bands for Resistance Training

Posted by & filed under .

I am writing this about 15 minutes after my roommate sent me some videos from the morning show on the Sports Hub. I admittedly didn’t catch the beginning of what he sent me so I did kind of miss the whole conversation. What I did catch was that they were talking about using resistance bands […]

Building Longevity in Golf

Posted by & filed under .

When golfers play more, and longer, everyone is happy. Golfers love to golf, the courses do well with more memberships/greens fees, and the retailers do well. Losing golfers does not help the game. I am not sure what other parts of the country are like but in Massachusetts there doesn’t seem to be a lack […]

The Problem with Sports Specific Training

Posted by & filed under .

Not too long ago I had a father come in and ask about some training. He seemed excited and his heart was in the right place. The issue is that his son is 6 years old. We do not start training our kids until 8 years old. He noticed that his son ran kind of […]

Progressing the Plank for Golfers

Posted by & filed under .

Golf season appears to be winding down here in MA. I think the biggest factor is football season. A lot of people try to make plans and do things for the game on Sundays. Never mind some of us psychos are very big on Saturdays too (Go Noles). I also encountered a 38 degree morning […]

Stronger and More Stable Athletes

Posted by & filed under , .

Sometimes I will use strength and stability almost interchangeably. On one hand strength is stable. On the other, we can break this down a little bit further. I have seen a lot of young athletes that get up to some pretty good numbers with their lifts. I have also seen some not so strong athletes […]

Better Nutrition for Golf

Nutrition is often a hot topic this time of year. We just got finished with the summer and the holidays are coming sooner than we expect. Never mind Tom Brady’s new book has people talking. There isn’t a lot of talk in the golf world about nutrition, though. I think the general idea is that […]

How Much Flexibility Do You Need?

Posted by & filed under .

Flexibility is often a big buzz word when it comes to training. Athletes want to be flexible and train in a way that allows that to happen. How much flexibility does an athlete actually need though? The short answer is whatever they need to get in the necessary positions for their sport. If they can […]

How Golfers Can Manage Knee Pain

Posted by & filed under .

A lot of people can play golf which means that a lot can also be dealing with a number of ailments, aches, and pains. Knee pain is a big one. Many people deal with it. Heck, I am dealing with it right now. This past weekend I walked 18 holes and bombed around New Orleans […]

Gluten Free Cookies are Still Cookies

Posted by & filed under .

I was having a good conversation with a client this morning. He was asking if I had seen the special on Tom Brady and the TB12 Method. This is obviously a hot topic in New England. Every time someone has brought up Brady (or even Gronk) this year, the conversation inevitably moves towards the book, […]

KB Pullovers for Better Golf

Posted by & filed under .

I have spoken quite a bit about why I do not understand combining exercises. I am not really sure why this is so prevalent in the golf world but I still do not see the use. My big underlying argument against them is that you cannot put full effort into each movement if they are […]
