Pivotal Sports Performance  "Superior preparation. Superior performance." Andre@pivotalsports.com (619) 920-3209

385x10 today on the squats. Body is feeling good, able to get more pop out of the hole. Despite not having a ACL in my right knee I feel good. My strength starts to climb when my body weight is about 190lbs. I followed this up with @mad_scientist_duffin transformer bar tempo 5/1/1/0 squats and other high rep accessory lifts.

Messing around with a single squat the replicates athletes coming out of a three point stance or blocks for track. Stud high school baseball player and Quarterback @angelo_peraza putting in work in preparation for his upcoming football season.

Using block start squats, im going to play around with foot positioning, hip/shin angles and heights, using weight, overloaded eccentrics, isometrics against immovable resistance, bands, rep tempo etc. to see if can use this exercise to gain specificity to athletes first step quickness.

Learning to set the wedge, Kabuki style via @get_the_funk_outta_here. After the first rep I decided to just push the set for a easy 10 on a 3/4 deficit for fun.

I’ve been rotating between conventional and sumo every week, this has all but alleviated any SI joint issues I get with consistent conventional deadlifting. I may even throw trap bar in as progress stalls.

For the first time in years I’ve decided to keep my body in a calories surplus. To put on size in my weak areas and allow some nagging pains to go away. Body is adapting to this, even though I’m soft for my liking I’m enjoying being pain free and being the strongest I’ve been ever. Keep pushing fam!

When the boys get to compete against each other for bragging rights during off season training, it always adds a lil juice to the game. #pivotalsportsperformance #pivotalsports #psp #superiorpreparation #superiorperformance #speedkills #piggy #nicearmsleeve #baseball

As I study slow motion video and stills of @zakdarling20, it’s crazy to think that This summer marks 15 years that I’ve been training athletes. It’s crazy to think that 15 years into this career and I’m still finding new ways to craft these athletes. Crazy to think that after all this time I still have the same passion and fire at almost 33 that I did when I was 18.

Thank you to all my athletes, coaches and trainers without y’all there’s no way in hell I’d be this far.

Meeting former professional wrestler and actor Bill @goldberg95 before he threw out the first pitch at the Padres game was pretty rad. You can tell the man still lifts the iron just by his raw size and muscle density. #pivotalsportsperformance #pivotalsports #psp #SDinHD #padres #sandiego

Because that smile right there is worth every penny... all 1,133,550 of them!

Different paths, same destination. Two PSP athletes, @jordanverdon_21 and @yeeric_yeee getting drafted to the same team this year was a first in my 15 years of training. We are gearing up for a big pro baseball off-season! #pivotalsportsperformance #pivotalsports #pivotalspeedmethod #superiorpreparation #superiorperformance #speedkills #detroittigers #baseball #mlb #earnit

Taking time to actually grow, work on strength, heal nagging injuries and set new goals.

For me taking this approach steps out of my boundaries, it makes me uncomfortable, but in truth that’s the only way we can develop.

13 year old kairo pushing 260 for a nice squat, 14 year old @daneschoenborn hitting 205 like a rocket and @zakdarling20 came back after this 225 to hit one with better depth.

These young men have been training with me for years, and have done all training with with submaximal weights. Take in mind when we first put the bar on their backs 95lbs was a rough start.
-
Our progression of teaching athletes how to squats allows us to exhaust all means of performance gains before advancing to the next phase of the athletes training career. Less is more, in terms of exercises used. One thing they never lack is effort and intensity.
-
Teaching these to barbell squat before entering high school was my main concern, as 96.9% of high school “strength” coaches can’t teach it correctly.
