 Today I would like to talk about a fairly controversial yet necessary topic in the exercise world: pattern overload.  We have all seen people that go to the gym and perform the same exercises, over and over again.  Whether it’s the result of “old school” mentality, lack of knowledge, or someone steering them in the wrong direction, consistently doing the same exact exercises (just with increasingly higher weight) will lead to dysfunction.

So the other day I ran through the basics of a solid resistance training plan to include in your training arsenal IF your goal is to lose weight and gain lean body mass.

So here I am, a newly minted Sports Performance Professional. I have studied the excellent NASM material to enhance sports performance and am eager to apply my knowledge. As I read and studied and thought about it, it struck me how applicable and modifiable those concepts are to every client. We all need to generate power in our lives at one point or other. The challenge in training is to stay on the right side of the line where the benefits of the exercises justify possible risks.

 Good Morning! Today I would like to talk to you about foam rolling and its benefits. Often not understanding the full benefits that it offers, most people see the grey cylindrical device as a form of forced torture. When performed correctly, foam rolling offers your body many benefits, both during your workout and post-workout.

 Good Morning! Today I would like to talk about how to properly incorporate bodyweight training into your workout routine. While weight training IS absolutely essential for your progress, it should NOT be the only way that you are training. You do not have to walk into the gym and put up as much weight as possible every time you work out. If you can move your own body via push-ups, pull-ups, body weight squats, ab wheel rollouts, etc., you are better off than people who lift heavy weights yet cannot do a pull-up.
