    4 Replacements For Jogging To Stay In Shape

    Although it has always been a popular tool for coaches and athletes alike, going for a distance run seems to be more popular than ever. And in our current environment you can see why.

Distance runs will help you improve your cardiovascular fitness, but it definitely comes at a cost. If you've read our emails over the years you've heard this from me before. Distance running creates a heel strike pattern that carries over to your sprint mechanics, leaving you slower and more prone to injury. ....

Yet it has a twin health disruptor that has largely flown under the radar. Vegetable oil. In her book " Deep Nutrition" , Dr. Cate Shanahan outlines in great detail how the vegetable oils that are found literally everywhere in our food options today are, along with sugars, creating the massive spike in health issues we've seen in our society over the last 40+ years. WHAT MAKES VEGETABLE OILS BAD FOR YOU? In short, it's because of PUFAs. PUFAs are polyunsaturated fatty acids, something that is not found in natural food sources unless they are refined ....

    5 Upgrades Coming To Our Athletic Development Workouts

    Having to close our training facility for the last three months has, in a strange way, offered up a very unique opportunity to provide a better service to all our athletes. How?

Our goal has always been to guide everyone who trains with us to develop the athletic and personality traits necessary for excellence in sports, and beyond. With this as our mission, these are the five upgrades we've been working on this spring that you'll see when we return to our regular class offerings.

    Virtual Speed Clinics (Free - With Video)

    Of all the physical skills an athlete needs to be successful, speed development is the most challenging one to obtain. Distance running definitely doesn't help.

Strength training gets a little closer. Quality plyometric work helps even a little more, but still isn't all the way there. The one way to build true speed and agility is with proper speed & agility training. If you have a little outdoor space, and a couple items to use as cones you can follow the lesson below to get some ....

    Best Ways To Train At Home

    To say we are currently in less than ideal circumstances would be an understatement. However, that doesn't mean we cannot adapt and grow in new ways. That's what we humans do.

That's the bad news. The good news is all of your competition is in the same boat, and to get a step up on them all you have to do is get more done than they are. There are levels to what you can do at home that range from doing nothing up to having everything you need to stay right on track. We've organized those levels ....
