Hello and welcome everyone...over the past 10 years I have designed 41 different drills for use in my training and for other
athletes with emphasis on high impact training focus. There specific purpose for each drill and exercise. I compete in Track and
Field, martial arts, tennis, racquetball, pickleball, soccer, basketball, softball and flag football. Every one of my drills must be specific to the results desired. If you can exercise (movement)
one way, then you can exercise that movement in four different
directions. Learning how to measure effectiveness/progress is key.
Next week...a listing of some of my drills.

Hello and welcome everyone...over the past few months I have been asked the following question, "what are the five toughest drills
you face?" So, here's the five...1) pull a 150 lb sled or tire 10 meters, 5 sets. 2) jumping in place, bringing knees up to my chest
30 times in 15 sec. 3) water aerobics for 45 min. 4) wall walk, stand
2/3 feet from wall w/back to wall, reach up overhead, put fingers
against wall and walk fingers all the way down until your head touches floor and then walk fingers back up to starting point. Five
sets. 5) sprint 400 meters in 70 sec. All my workouts are for two
hours with a 20 min. warm up and 20 min. cool down. Six days a
week. Always finish your workout. In school, when you didn't finish your home work assignment, we got an "incomplete." Never
get an incomplete in your workouts. It's a pass or fail business.
Question...would you invest in yourself?

Hello and welcome much in life is about time, distance, connections and detours. And once in awhile we should
take a step backwards before we can move forward. I call this a
"Kodak" moment. Most of us plan, set goals and are driven to get
the most out of life. Assessment, analogize our state of mind and
body. Most of us "hit a wall" at times. Next what to do and how to
do it is critical to break down barriers. Change is not waiting for us
to catch up to's coming at us and all around us. Many people
freeze, become paralyzed. We become addicted to failure. That's
when rigormortis sets in. A key...change workout/training pattern
begins with our mindset and yes move out of our comfort zone. Rid
that robotic routine. Muscle confusion is created. Addiction to old
habits is dangerous and regressive. Today, take that step backward
in order progress forward with assurance and confidence. The one what I am doing and the way I'm doing it going to get
me to where I need to be.

Under Water

Hello and welcome everyone...let's continue our "ultimate challenge" series. Awhile ago I devoted a blog to the Navy Seals
training. For the past five years I have relied on sprinting (barefoot)
on the beach and in water. Let's begin in the water. Sprinting in waist high water...this is resistant sprinting, staying on the balls of my feet and keeping with the sprinter's form for 30 seconds. Ten
sets. Mix in plyometrics...staying in waist high water, squat and
spring up with arms reaching above your head...ten times. Always
on the balls of your feet, never land flat footed. Bring knees up to
your chest when you spring up. These water drills will develop
your fast twitch, leg strength and endurance. Drills can be done in
a shallow pool. Sprinting on the, 30 meters, ten
sets, on the balls of your feet. Sand forces you to work harder. This
is a high impact workout. No matter what your sport is or your goals, these drills will get you there.
