IKSC Weekly Link Blast May 30, 2019

This article brings up a point I like to hammer home at IKSC about training athletes. They have to have a base of strength in a few basic exercises before any kind of “sport specific” training is necessary or even a good idea at all. There are lots of programs that bleed parents for tons of $$$ that are nearly useless, but look cool, and parents that don’t know the difference fall right into the trap.

The single most important thing a strength coach can do is protect a young athlete from THEMSELVES. The most foolproof way to do this is to reinforce basic strength movements using conservative and safe exercises.

You can’t make up lost sleep on weekends. Note how short the study was, and yet the results so pronounced. The immediate results of good sleep habits versus bad ones have shown up fast in many studies. And like we’ve discussed in class, poor sleep immediately translates into poor food choices.
