The first thing I have learned as an intern at 1RM Performance: These Trainers Care.

The most caring trainers in San Diego are at 1RM Performance. I always knew Bobby and his staff cared very much about each individual athlete. Of course, until this summer, I had never seen them train anyone beside myself. It is now week three of my internship at 1RM performance, and I am amazed at how intently they train each athlete! They give all of their effort all the time. Literally. I have witnessed the same attitude and energy in the gym for a grade school girl at 10 AM as I have for a collegiate football player training at 8 PM. To me, that is called being passionate and loving what you do. Bobby and Melissa put their lives into this gym and it really shows.

May is here and college athletes are returning. School is about to end, and things are about to get a little hectic at the gym! Needless to say this is my favorite time of the year. Training for athletes shift a little bit from managing stressors and adjusting programming based on practice schedules, to being the driving force of stressors. Training explodes and magic happens. But this doesn’t mean athletes are just thrown under the bar, loaded, and cranking away on reps. Quality is king, and in this article I’ll address how we get athletes cranking and running optimally during their summer training before school starts up again.

Why 1RM Performance, By Justin Page, a 5 year 1RM Performance Family member! 

At the end of summer 2010 was my first encounter with Bobby Congalton. I was very impressed with him upon our first meeting, thinking something along the lines of “was this man hand-chiseled by the Greek Gods themselves?”

Testing Your Movement

Testing Your Movement...Sandbagging Not Allowed

We spend hours training with the hopes that those changes that we make in the gym actually carryover in the sport. When athletes train on their own or are in other high stress situations, are they still using their improved movement capabilities? The answer might not be the obvious yes.

What is The Oblique Sling

Written by

What is the Oblique Sling

What is the oblique sling, and how does it affect me as an athlete? Are you a baseball player and want to throw harder and hit the ball further? Or are you a volleyball player that wants to increase arm speed and hit harder? Or are you a quarterback that wants to throw with a little more mustard? Your ability to do so is dependent upon your ability to load and create length through your oblique sling. This sling is our bodies personal whip. Understanding how to use it is a insanely effective way to improve sport performance.

Effect of Groin Tight in Baseball

Effect of Groin (adductor) Tightness in Baseball Players

If you have ever played baseball, or really any rotational sport, you have experienced some type of groin pain. You have probably had tightness, you may have felt pulls, and you have lost time within your craft because of it.  What most don’t know are the actual causes for the issues, the impact it has elsewhere in your body, and easy ways to relieve nagging groin issues. That’s where this article comes in!

Should Baseball Players Bench Press

Written by

Should Baseball Players Bench?

The classic question of whether or not baseball players should bench; I hear this question at least twice a week. My answer: yes and no.  The answer is neither yes or no because there are a lot of people in this world (baseball, overhead athlete, non sport athletes…) that honestly shouldn’t bench. Why? because they don’t know to bench PROPERLY. I will go out on a limb and say anyone that doesn’t know how to bench shouldn’t bench, and anyone that knows how to bench properly should. Follow along as I lay to rest all the claims made against baseball players and benching. IMG_1243_1.jpg

The Little Things are the Big Things

Written by

In life, and in gyms across the nation, you see the same quotes time and time again… “No pain no gain”, “You miss 100% of the shots that you never take”, “Just do it”, “Train smarter”, “Go hard or go home”, etc. Yes, each of those saying contain a powerful message, but they have never encompassed what I am about. It wasn’t until the start of Christmas break that I found a quote that truly resonates with me. "The Little Things Are The Big Things!"

DNS and Strength and Conditioning

Written by

Blending Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization and Strength and Conditioning

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) gives the practitioner and strength coach an ability to do magic. It is the single most powerful understanding of ideal joint positioning, whether static or dynamic. It is arguably the most powerful corrective exercises out there, and when blended with strength and conditioning, it creates monsters.  Combining the three components is insanely powerful and allows you to make changes and improvements fast. I’m talking increased throwing velocity after day 1, simply because of the neural changes that are taking place. However, Pavel (DNS Founder), and the other top DNS practitioners, all fall under the umbrella of clinicians. I as a strength coach, face a slightly more difficult challenge. How can you effectively blend DNS and Strength and Conditioning? How can I use these concepts to not just get kids moving better, but also running faster, squatting more, and throwing harder. Well ladies and gents, this is what I’ve found so far.

    Improving The Throwing Athlete Part 1. Generating Lower Body Power. Do You Have What it Takes?

    Is your lower half holding you back when you throw? Do you feel like you’re not maximizing your lower body while throwing? The simplest way to see if your lower body is holding you back is to see if your lower body has enough power and strength to begin with. In other words, does your lower body have sufficient power but you are just not using it? Or, are you just so weak and have such little power coming from your lower half that there is nothing there to help you generate speed and power into the ground and down the mound helping you throw.
