Week in Review

Week in Review on

A key component of good programming is not only starting a person where they need to start, but also knowing when to progress once they’ve mastered a certain exercise or stimulus. That’s progression at it’s best and what helps keep progress going.

When it comes to weight training, muscle and strength gets a lot of praise (as it should), but something that really gets overlooked is its impact on keeping soft tissue structures strong and healthy. This alone should have athletes intrigued about what it can do for a career, specifically longevity. I’ve had years go by between basketball contracts and I give a lot of credit to strength training allowing me to come back multiple times.

As an athlete you will never reach your full potential if your willingness to prepare doesn’t match your desire to play the sport itself. It’s easy to get lost in always wanting to play games, but I can’t stress enough what a mindset of preparation can do for you not only physically, but mentally as well.

Best article/email I read this week:

My friends at Precision Nutrition put together this great article about carbs, insulin, and weight loss. It’s very informative and I think you’ll enjoy it.

Thanks for reading.
