Chicago Bulls Strength and Conditioning


Congrats to Josh Bonhotal on becoming the Assistant Strength and Conditioning coach for the Chicago Bulls. I got the opportunity to talk with Josh recently about his strength and conditioning views and philosophies. I viewed it as a great chance to learn. Congrats again to Josh and good luck in the upcoming season.

Family Rivalry

It is always good to see how former interns and graduate assistants are doing in the profession. Last night was no different when the Anaheim Ducks and the San Jose Sharks faced off in Pre-Season action. Sean Skahan, the Ducks Strength and Conditioning coordinator and Mike Potenza, the director of Strength and Conditioning for the Sharks both made stops at Boston University early on in their careers. Sean was an intern of mine while completing his undergraduate studies at UMASS Boston and Mike was a graduate assistant with me after completing his undergraduate work at Springfield College. The Ducks took the first of many battles this season, beating the Sharks 6-4. Good luck to both clubs this season.

Quote of the Week


I came upon this quote recently and felt that I had to share it with you. #23 won plenty of games over his career. And he did it with teamwork.

“There are plenty of teams in every sport that have great players and never win titles. Most of the time, those players aren’t willing to sacrifice for the greater good of the team. The funny thing is, in the end, their unwillingness to sacrifice only makes individual goals more difficult to achieve. One thing I believe to the fullest is that if you think and achieve as a team, the individual accolades will take care of themselves. Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” Michael Jordan
