    Workshop Highlights
  • • The Quadrants: Finally, clarity in the world of weights
    • How do YOU measure up?
    • The Role of Hypertrophy and Armor Building
    • The “Four Knots:” It’s not what you think about core any more.

    What is the impact of the strength coach to sport? Shouldn’t it be obvious? Then, why doesn’t the team with the best gym numbers ALWAYS win?
    Should a 1,000 pound deadlifter jog, swim and bicycle? Play in a local basketball league? Should a 12 year old boy rest five minutes between his sets of 92% max on his squat?
    Why do the lousy guys do so much more than the great guys?
    What’s a quality, anyway?
    If a training principle was considered backwards and nonproductive in the early 1960s, why would you model your career after it?
    The Incredible Hulk, Sir Galahad and Bobby Fisher get into a contest. Who wins? How does armor help an athlete and when does it hurt?
    The goal is to keep the goal…what? Why does everybody miss this point?
    Where is Peggy Lee? Is that really “all there is?” Why does five minutes of work on a piece of paper with a few lines radically increase the chances of success?
    Losers get more out of losing than winners get out of winning. Strong statement…but true?
    Why is my favorite sports diet Frogs, Elephants and Alpo Dog Food?
    “Do you want to be stronger or lift more weight?”
    Have you earned the right to train “sport specific”?
    Why does it need to be “Strength & conditioning”, not “conditioning & more conditioning”?
    Do you really need plyometrics?
    Also, hands on training and Q and A throughout the sessions.
