Stabilization Training / Rehab and Basketball Training

Hey guys, I'm studying for NASM certification, but that's not the part I'm directly concerned with. I see a lot of you think balance and stabilization training is a waste of time in another thread. That's cool, if you don't like it don't it do it. Personally, I've lifted as consistently as I could...

Coaching Best Practice - Group Classes

To clarify and add to my previous thread. My clients tend to be average people just wanting to be "fit for life". One of our focuses, apart from functional conditioning and the such, is building limit strength, (but not so much hypertrophy). As a rule a coach should design a program to ensure...

Jon Goodman's 1K Extra

Has anybody tried it? Is it worth the money? I've always loved the PTDC, but how much information can you really get from the investment?

Quick Question

Hi trainers, I am really glad there is a place like this I can ask questions. There are lots of misconceptions out there and I personally would much prefer a trainer's advice. I have a hockey competition coming. As you know, a hockey game is broken into 3 periods. Should I eat a little bit...

Does everyone have it wrong?

This seems like the right spot, havent been on here in a while. So been lifting for like 5 yearsish and everyone always said 3-4 sets of 5-7 for bulk and 8-12 for cut. I did that for a while n my lifts would go up but for a short period then plateau. I know plateau is part of lifting but I cant...

P.T's and Med Students
