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

Written by

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.

1RM Performance Summer Training Recap

Written by

Summer Recap at 1RM Performance

A summer of training at 1RM Performance has just come to a close. This is the first summer where things have really exploded in the gym for us here in San Diego. I really believe we are becoming the premier training facility in the area. Not because of the athletes that come in, but because of the athletes that leave.

1RM Performance Training Model

Written by

1RM Performance and San Diego Strength and Conditioning

There are three major avenues that we improve performance of our athletes:

1.  Movement

2. Mentality

3. Programming. 

In my opinion, these are the three most important aspects of training that must be addressed and improved in order to truly take an athlete to the next level. Together, each attribute raises the overall athletic potential of the individual, improving their short and long-term abilities.

  • Why smart people believe dumb things (and how that relates to your vertical)

    I recently read a great article about why smart people believe dumb things. This article brought up some excellent points on why there are so many “experts” in the nutrition and fitness fields. You know those people I am talking about - the ones who only eat Keto because you burn more calories or the ones who are doing plant based because of some documentary or those who don’t eat carbs because a study showed you could be leaner and faster without them or the ones who do Peloton cycling and have never been leaner in their lives. And these people tend to be the ones who have a very large voice in the fitness/nutrition community and for some reason we like to believe them.
