1RM Performance's Take on Gym Etiquette

Living in San Diego you see different types of people, which means many different ways of working out. One common theme when it comes to people working out in gyms out here are bicep curls in the squat racks, which might be the single worst use of the squat rack you constantly see, and subpar gym etiquette.

Basketball - explosive training

Written by

How to be an explosive basketball player

Only 15% of the game of basketball is spent cutting, sprinting, and jumping, which would be considered as high intensity exercise.  So how do you train specifically for basketball?  If you consider the fact that the majority of the game of basketball consists of low to moderate work, you would think that's how you would train.  But, it is those quick actions, the first steps, the change of directions, the quick jump for a rebound, which make the difference between a good basketball player and a great basketball player.

Baseball Strength and Conditioning...The Do's and Dont's

Baseball is not an endurance sport. I have been asked 4 times in the last 12 hours whether baseball players should run cross country to stay in shape for baseball. My answer? Absolutely not. If your goal is to get in shape for baseball, DO NOT RUN CROSS COUNTRY. Baseball is an extremely powerful sport; a 3.2 mile run does not stress the same energy system! Specificity is key! Hopefully by the end of this article, you will learn how to properly train a baseball player to drastically improve sport performance

    Long Term Development of Youth Baseball Players

    The best ways to maintain long-term development of youth baseball players has been getting a little confusing over the past few years. The internet has granted coaches at all levels access to really advanced training methods. Band accelerated jumps, band resistant squat jumps, weighted ball programs, resisted and accelerated sprint work, and high speed high force med ball exercises are now all extremely common in training programs for athletes of all levels; from the beginners to the pros that have been training for 15 years. This info, although awesome to be out there, is in my opinion a double edge sword, and hindering the actual long term development of the youth baseball players of the country.
