The impact that we make

I have been fortunate to work with some great athletes over the years. I wanted to take a moment to share some of the articles that have been written about some of the experiences.

Strength and Conditioning for Basketball


The importance of sound strength and conditioning programs designed and implemented by qualified professionals is continuously on the rise. Basketball for instance is a sport that, 20 or more years ago, didn’t embrace the notion of lifting weights out of the fear that it would make them too big. It is great that in today’s game, that notion has been thrown out. In fact, here at BU, I am fortunate to work with a great coaching staff that understands the importance of strength and conditioning for basketball. An article from the Des Moines Register actually discussed the importance of the strength and conditioning coach and the impact that we have on the sport of basketball. As the title of the article reads…“In Basketball, lifting weights is just as important as shooting jumpers.”

Read the labels


I was reading a post by my friend, PC. He recently was commenting on his blog about the overall healthiness of Vitamin Water. He reports that the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), filed a lawsuit against Coke recently. They reported that the sugar content was too high. I think that its important to understand that, as with most sports drinks out there, moderation is the key. If you want to have a Vitamin Water or any other sport drink while you’re working out, fine go ahead and have it, but beware of the high sugar content of these drinks. If you insist on having these drinks, try diluting the drinks with tap water. The alternative is to just have regular water during your workouts. And to be honest, for most workouts lasting up to 60 minutes, water should be just fine for hydration. If, however, the workout is longer than 60 minutes then a sports drink could help you out.
