A moment to remember... #jenkinsboys #Fallfestival #TWHS

Had a blast being honored today at my High School's first pep rally of the year!😊 what an awesome school full of even better students β€οΈπŸ’š #ForeverAHighlander #TWHS #ClassOf13

Practicing what some would consider "bad posture" lifting. Under most circumstances, a "braced neutral" spine is the ideal way to perform most activities like pulling, running, jumping ect. HOWEVER, certain situations in life and sports (such as lifting awkward or odd objects off the floor, or wrestling an opponent) will force you into flexed or "rounded" (hunch back) positions, and you better have an effective movement strategy for handling them without getting injured. the only way to train the capacity of the tissue and CNS to handle it is to periodically practice loaded, braced flexion and extension -

As demonstrated here , I'm bracing in a slightly flexed position and MAINTAINING it through out the entire range of motion. This is fundamentally different from the spinal flexion and extension faults (being far too rounded over or too extended) that many athletes and lifters commit AS A RESULT OF poor bracing or improper set-up. -
-
Braced flexion and extension is a technique that should only be attempted once athletes have established the ability to maintain a braced neutral position FIRST. The necessary degree of flexion/extension will fall on a continuum based on load, exercise selection, health and experience level of the athlete.

A word to coaches: stop telling your athletes how "terrible" their posture is to sound smart. There is no one set standard for posture or movement proficiency across the board, nor can you always magically fix it like you've been lead to believe. Often times, the people with the "best posture" are the most screwed up! In addition, some of the "worst movers" on paper are also the best athletes! This is where a keen eye for detail, and a holistic/ individualized approach is absolutely vital to the success and longevity of your athletes. Coaches are problem solvers, not creators

As I sit down to my computer this morning...having to open this gallery to place a rush order for a funeral service. I'm overwhelmed with emotions. This day was amazing. Megan was the sweetest, most humbly beautiful girl I've met. She trusted me. She came to me nervous bc she had never done "real pictures" before. But she was a light. So full of joy and willing to do exactly what I guided her into. Her mother was there step for step. Helping. Laughing. Smiling as she watched her baby bloom. Taking behind the scenes images for us to both remember. And I'm so grateful she did. This is a day I'll never forget. Photographers, remember our jobs are so much bigger than we give ourselves credit for. It doesn't always mean tragedy. But one day. Those images you take could be all someone had left. Today I'm am feeling incredibly humbled. So grateful I was chosen to let her beauty shine in front of my camera. So natural and real. Because this is what her family and friends are hanging on to at this sad sad moment. My heart aches for this family.

The new Track at the The Woodlands High is much better now than it was back in my senior year in 2014.

Research Reviewβ€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
As we saw ⬅️on Monday, unstable surface training (UST) has recently ⬆️in popularity within the rehab and performance based settings. While UST does appear to be beneficial in those with a previous history of lower extremity πŸ€•injury, limited data exist to support whether or ❌not it can improve performance in HEALTHY persons. So what did the following study have to say? πŸ€”
.
Well ALL performance values improved to a less extent in the UST group! While the authors noted ⬆️antagonist activity and ⬇️stretch shortening cycle functioning as reasons why, essentially UST (in healthy populations) may undermine the principle of specificity. In other words, training instability in the lower extremities may be INsufficient because while most activities occur on a stable surface, it's the upper extremity which is experiencing instability.
.
Thus, according to Cressey et al (2007), if instability is applied, it may be more appropriate to do so ⬆️higher up the kinetic chain within the context of more sport specific demands. Overall, whether the goal is to ⬆️speed, ⬆️force or ⬆️power, it appears that it's best to do so on stable surfaces. Now, for individuals who do compete on unstable surfaces such as beach πŸ€Ύβ€β™€οΈ, πŸ‚, β›·, πŸ„ etc., these persons may benefit from UST applied to the lower extremities.

Everyone's so terrified of training their fragile little low back and neckβ€”not us! Neck injuries, concussions, and other head related trauma is of a growing concern for athletes in contact sports like football. As a S&C coach, it's your job to develop a balanced program that not only improves performance, but also aids in the prevention of potentially debilitating sports injuries. That's why ALL of our football players do neck training at some point. -
-
Neck training can minimize the severity of concussions significantly by preventing the brain from rattling. Believe it or not, multiple studies have confirmed that for every inch of additional neck muscle, the risk of concussion is reduced significantly. In addition, neck training is a fantastic way to improve forward head posture, and potentiate upper body strength and performance via improved cervical alignment. -

Here @_kizzie_how_you_do_that Demonstrates a partner assisted neck bridge. Unlike traditional neck bridges which can place undue stress on cervical spine, these are completely safe and effective. The addition of the partner assisted "perturbations" and proprioceptive element of the disk helps to train the neck and surrounding musculature to resist random, frequent and unwanted motion. These are way harder than they look, and you don't need a lot of manual resistance when dealing with the head

Happy, happy birthday to you @heathercochrane18!!! πŸŽ‰β€οΈπŸŽ‰

My biggest fear when parents grab these behind the scene shots is a behind in the scene...this one got pretty close 😬 #buttcrack

We had fun incorporating her love for golf for this session!

Ellie and I are heading to NYC for our first time in early December....what MUST we do!?! I'm busy making out list and what we are going to eat!

Our doors are now open!!πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ‘—
Come take a look and see what you love!

@westsidebarbellofficial on why we move LIGHT WEIGHT fast!
My track kids do speed work with your 1 rep max πŸ€”

" Velocity based" Strength-speed and power training with the boys. Moving lighter weight as fast as possible, and keeping the nervous system fresh for our in-season guys. No, you don't have to do Olympic lifting to develop power and force production, nor do you need a tendo unit to do VBT
-
-
Bar velocity is more important than the movement itself when the goal is to train a specific biomotor ability. Speed, power, and strength are all developed at different percentages of a 1 RM, and therefore at different velocities. Raising an athletes strength ceiling will always be important, but at some point you've got to ask yourself "what am I actually trying to accomplish with this "? Remember, you're athletes...not powerlifters, bodybuilders or even Olympic lifters. Lifting weights is merely a single TOOL for athletic development.
