Social media will try to get parents and coaches thinking their kids need to be training like All-Pro's w/ thousands of hours of training sessions under their belts.

Don't fall for that trap.

Instead of looking at what a genetically gifted freak of an athlete with nothing but time and resources to invest in their career is doing now, maybe take a peek at what they were doing 12-15yrs ago.

You'll see consistency, hard work, and time spent savagely mastering the basics.

Start there.

It's very easy to get hung up on the coulda/woulda/shoulda of fitness and health.

Let it go.

Get where your thoughts can help you.

I will...

I want...

I am...

Go with those.

Had a good question from an online client about how to go about swinging when they don't have access to big kettlebells.

When swinging for power, double up on the bells.

Either a gunslinger stance or a more traditional 2KB approach will get you what you need.

Grab life by the 'bells, and swing it like you mean it.

Every bit of movement and mobility you might want and need to be doing is made more effective by being intentional.

Placing a band* around your back in cat/cow not only gives a little resistance to the movement, it provides fantastic feedback when it comes to knowing if we're moving the area of the spine we need to be.

Give it a try as part of your next warm-up or pair it with a pulling exercise and let us know what you think.

Move it, you'll like the way it feels.

*use a light band, nobody's walking in with a suitcase of cash for using the heaviest band possible.

I get it, the bottomless abyss of nonsense that is fitness social media is confusing to say the least.

🛑A few things to spend less time deliberating:🛑
- the type of equipment you're using
- what your trainer benched back in the day
- finding the perfect new flashy program

✅️Instead focus on:✅️
- doing things you enjoy
- with people you like
- while taking steps forward

Keep it simple💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

Shoulder Shocker is a go-to, and one of the things we use to keep the wings of our fighters, boxers, volleyball players, and pitchers healthy.

Grab a couple light bands (trust me, light bands is all you need) and play along at home with our double stuffed Oreo dance line.

Straight fire.

You think lifting weights is dangerous?

Wait until I tell you about a little thing called "physics".

Know the tipping weight on your bar, be mindful of your loading and unloading, and keep everything where it's supposed to be.

Lift ends when the bar is empty.

Normal Hours M-W this week, then we're on holiday.

Get it in💪💪💪

Husbands and wives.

Parents and kids.

Brothers and sisters.

Some cousins.

It's a family thing.

Hamstrings might be the definition of you get the love you give.

Stronger, more pliable hamstrings will impact everything from back and knee health to sports performance and resiliency.

Train them at the hip with various single and double leg hinge variations.

And hit them at the knee with the curls.

They'll get you back

11/05/2023

Coaches, trainers, and instafamous fitness personalities can spend their time arguing methods and equipment and what's "best".

You don't have to.

Your body doesn't spend a single second trying to differentiate between barbells and bodyweight, kettlebells or dumbbells, bands or cables.

It truly doesn't care. So what to do?

☝️Find something you like.

✌️Get good at it.

🤟Hammer it until it's boring.

💪Then do that for another 10-12 months and you'll really be onto something.

Gains.

Try to remember that telling someone exactly what to do, and exactly how to do it, doesn't help them become a leader.

In fact it can stunt the process.

Leadership happens organically, and leaders come from surprising places sometimes.

Not everyone who wants to do it does it well, and not every great leader wants to be there.

Growing pains are going to happen.

Encourage the effort, and be an example.

Leadership isn't an act or an order, it's a process and a practice💪

Sioux Falls Crow Rugby has been it different this year.

Two times a week getting ready has them waiting on the ground to clear off so they can get outside.

Whenever you want to do this thing Spring, season kicks off April 15th.

Let's roll.

Sports are about acceleration.

Put your foot down and go.

Definitely not the social media darlings that perfect approaches and 10+ft touches are, but probably more useful.

Pogo jumps are a low intensity plyo that we work as warm-ups for big moves, as lower body primers, and for stand alone S&C on the feet and calves.

If you've ever struggled with stress fractures, shin splints, or something like plantar fasciitis, you know how debilitating and nagging those injuries can be.

Get ahead of them with more low impact prep work.

Athletcism starts from the ground up, and weak feet don't eat.

01/18/2023

Long term success has nothing to do with what you think it does, and everything to do with things you have a gut feeling about.

Sustainability is built on getting comfortable and doing things you enjoy w/ people you like.

That's a strong start.

01/17/2023

Adding a slider seems like a little thing, but it can be a monster as far as forcing tight technique and making you double down on controlling the movement.

Get careless and loose on this and something is going to rip, and you'll be hoping its just your pants.

Side note for the fellas: want to get more mobile/flexible? Challenge yourself and get stronger in exercises like this.

11/05/2022

It's a real vibe being able to watch our girls close out the regular season at home w/ the Dub on Senior Night.

They earned the recognition.

Extra work.
Extra time.
Extra effort.

Extra special.

, , and .harvison are some great humans who happen to be pretty good volleyball players.

And they're not done just yet😉.

That urge you might have after an injury to do nothing for a few weeks?

Ignore that.

Getting back to work and training what's trainable, will make your recovery process as efficient as possible.

Working back into a full range of motion can be uncomfortable, but is an essential part of returning to play.

You are not your giant black and blue ankle.
