Sample Weightlifting Flexibility Program
Greg Everett | Mobility & Training Preparation | October 1 2010 | Comments (5)

Flexibility is easily the biggest limiter for athletes starting to use the Olympic lifts. Of course, stretching is also the most boring thing you can possibly do. Getting someone flexible is less about what works and what doesn't, and more about what the individual will actually do consistently for the time it takes to get the job done. I've found too that giving suggestions is rarely adequat...... Continue reading
It's Not a Race for Last
Joe Kenn | General Training | September 28 2010 | Comments (1)

This July, my youngest son Peter was going through his first training camp of organized tackle football and I was very excited. With football, as with most other team sports, practices are pretty much all the same; start off with a warm up, move to position fundamentals, follow with some group/team work, and finish up with conditioning. It was during the conditioning portion of my son’s foot...... Continue reading
The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf: Book Excerpt
Robb Wolf | Nutrition | September 12 2010 | Comments

Our good friend Robb Wolf has been kind enough to allow us to run an excerpt from his new book, The Paleo Solution. This book is a story about us. You know, H. Sapiens. It’s also a story of how to optimize our performance, health, and longevity. While combining such monumental plot lines might lead you to believe this is one of those family saga novels that jumps all over in time, don&rsquo...... Continue reading
The Essence of Time
Joe Kenn | General Training | August 31 2010 | Comments

In sports, when the word “time” is used in a conversation, most discussion will be focused on an individual’s 40-yard dash, or how fast they can cover 40 yards in a maximal effort sprint. This is usually discussed in seconds, as in, “My running back ran the 40 in 4.37 seconds.” In the structured programming of competitive athletics, the essence of time is a critic......

Preventing Staph Infection
Yael Grauer | General Training | August 15 2010 | Comments (3)

MRSA is a particularly dangerous form of staph. While less virulent strains of the bacteria are thought to exist in close to a quarter of the population, only about 1% of people carry MRSA in their noses and skin. Short for methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aures, MRSA is often fatal and always difficult to treat due to its resistance to antibiotics called beta-lactams (including amoxicillin......

The Role of Strength in Weightlifting
Greg Everett | Olympic Weightlifting | August 1 2010 | Comments (5)

While the premise of this article may at first strike readers as odd, considering that weightlifting, despite considerable elements of skill and speed, is very clearly a strength sport, there exist quite a few perspectives regarding the role of strength in the training of weightlifters; or, more accurately, regarding the appropriate degree of emphasis of what might be considered non-specific stren......

Before You Squat: Physical and Mental Preparation
Greg Everett | General Training | July 30 2010 | Comments (6)

It struck me the other day while being miserable squatting that for all the talk and writing about how to squat, where to put the bar, how to program squats, there's a lack of talk on what to do before you squat. Maybe that's because I'm the only one who thinks it's worth talking about, but hopefully that's not the case. Step one is to be prepared physically for your squats. This can apply to......

Weightlifting Program Design Case Study
Greg Everett | Olympic Weightlifting | June 29 2010 | Comments (2)

Program design is one of those topics that is overwhelming both to read and write about. Most literature is necessarily nebulous and vague, and individuals interested in learning more often find themselves inundated with a collection of concepts that fail to fit together easily than with a set of practical rules they can implement. So instead of talking about ideas in this article, I want to r...... Continue reading

Interview Tips & Tricks There's a few things you should know about interviewers before they show up, or before they call.

The Acid-Alkaline Question
Yael Grauer | Nutrition | April 30 2010 | Comments (4)

When I was still in high school, I found myself cooking food at a really bizarre dinner party. One of my friends happened to be renting a room from a macrobiotic guru in town, and all of the macroneurotics (as they called themselves) would show up to cook and eat strange rice variations and weird vegetables. The first thing I remember is getting yelled at for rinsing veggies in warm water. "T...... Continue reading
