“To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” - Pre I gave it my best at the dog park today and won all the races. I think I made Dad proud. #PreMentality at Portland, Oregon

Meet Kayden. He is soon to be 10 & this year just made the transition from the 100/200/LJ to train with a group is Distance Runners. Most kids in the group he trains with are older. They push and encourage this young man. Today at the Spring Forward Track Meet he took on his first 800. He brought home 3 Golds. In he 400 he had so much in the tank that in the last 25 meters he hit another gear. Most kids die out, barely hanging on. Not Kayden. He Accelerated! I love it when what they do at practice takes them to a new level. And we are still in #basephase * * * I look Forward to what this Season brings. We still have #usatfjuniorolympicnationals 5 months away!

Spring Forward Track Meet Started off with Rain & Wind YET this little Lady took on the 3,000 & 1,500 before the rain stopped. Though still in #basephase she was within 7 seconds of last year's PR in the 3,000 then knocked out a 3 second PR in the 1,500...10 minutes later at the last minute she jumped into a 4x4. This is why you lay down a solid base, so you can be completely comfortable in crazy weather, ready for a 400 after taking on 2 Distance Races. I look Forward to what this Season brings. We still have #usatfjuniorolympicnationals 5 months away!

Babies learn to walk, by watching others walk not by listening to intellectual coaching cues from adults. For babies and most young people their eyes are wiser than their experience. When coaching youth it is critical that the coach be able to demonstrate expertise in the movements associated with the lifts he is teaching. If he is not expert, he must be wise enough and care enough for his students to bring in special guests who can demonstrate expert movement patterns. Be skillful enough for your students/athletes to safely seek to mimic what they see in you. #strongman #nsca #army #strengthcoach #powerlifting #deadlift #squat #health #weightloss #athlete #olympics #bodybuilding #workout #barbell #ripped #exercisescience #nfl #acsm #usatrackandfield #tedtalk #weightlifting #win #strongmancorporation #resistancetraining #weighttraining

50 years ago people who exercised were healthier and more fit than people who did not exercise. Today 80% of runners will not be able to run at some time this year due to an injury, this is also true of weight lifters. Today people who train are more fit but often less healthy than people who don’t train because of musculoskeletal problems. Exercise itself for many is becoming a “Risk Factor” for injury. One reason why this phenomenon is happening is the rampant use of preworkout drugs. These easily obtained psycho -stimulants can blunt the body’s natural awareness of fatigue and early warning signs of bodily harm. With this drug induced interference many exercisers press on in their training and compounding this with emotion infused exercises, open themselves for a myriad of injuries. If you are medicated (preworkout) you’re not dedicated. Do not take powder in an attempt to replace patience. #strongman #nsca #army #strengthcoach #powerlifting #deadlift #squat #health #weightloss #athlete #olympics #bodybuilding #workout #barbell #ripped #exercisescience #nfl #acsm #usatrackandfield #tedtalk #weightlifting #win #strongmancorporation #resistancetraining #weighttraining #stoneofsteel #squatober #strong #exercisescience

Being recognized for her 1928 gold medal in the form of sterling silver. She wasn’t supposed to swim because coaches though it was detrimental to the running muscles, but apparently she did it regardless. #runningmotivation #usatrackandfield #dyestat #runnersworld #olympichistory #bettyrobinson #tracknation #iaaf #usoc #usatf #highschooltrack #chicagohistory #olympicmuseum #readysetgo #courageoverfear #persistence #1928gold #goldmedalist #261fearless #girlsontherun #shepersisted #redfoxliterary #strava #runnersworld #run #100mdash #girlifeempowerment #womenshistorymonth

These dumbbells feel they just don’t fit in, there is no place for them to belong on the rack at a commercial gym; ironically they feel the same as the men who lift them.!🤔 So I took a moment to sit down and introduce myself to these new dumbbells.

The GOAT- Carl Lewis, now a track coach, recommends athletes play and do multiple sports! Specializing at 12 is not necessary. Developing bodies need the diversity in movement and strength. He admits to Dan Patrick he was a better soccer player at 12! ⚽️⚽️ And, if he had listened to ‘experts’, we would not have benefited from our 4-time gold medalist and his amazing feats. 🏅🏅Gratitude!! Salute!! • • • • #multiplesportathlete #crosstraining #periodization #selectsoccer #usatrackandfield #usasoccer #highschooltrack #ncaatrackandfield #selectsoccer #danpatrick #carllewis #teamusa #goat #goldmedalist #sportspsychology #neurosportperformanceacademy #mentaltoughness

40-60% of males training in commercial gyms over the age of 30 report having shoulder dysfunction/pain. Much of this can be attributed to excessive barbell pressing. Dumbbells can be utilized quite frequently to reduce the torque placed on the shoulders from barbell work. It is also a good idea to film from the feet or head to see if your pressing of each dumbbell is equal height; if one dumbbell is raised each rep to a different height it may be evidence of weak serratus anterior or tight pectoralis. Asymmetry is something to be aware of for sure. In pursuit of mental mastery staying calm before applying the storm can be difficult as the mind is so eager to engage early in the big lift or the eventual victory. Kenny Rogers sang a song with lyrics that went, “there will be time enough for counting when the dealing’s done.” 😉 Calmness conserves energy... energy that can be used for one more rep! And remember it is reps that count not all the hype before them. 🧠 I will talk about wrist and hand position Later. #strongman #nsca #army #strengthcoach #powerlifting #deadlift #squat #health #weightloss #athlete #olympics #bodybuilding #workout #barbell #ripped #exercisescience #nfl #acsm #usatrackandfield #tedtalk #weightlifting #win #strongmancorporation #resistancetraining #weighttraining #stoneofsteel #squatober #strong #exercisescience

DISTRACTIONS - Carl Lewis, one of the most beloved and decorated Team USA Track athletes of all time, comments with Dan Patrick on his mental distraction during the Olympics when he ran his best time... BUT...his mind went to comparing with his competition and took his body off of responding what he was actually capable of —9.8. Yes, an incredible amount of external distractions were going on. It was a media circus of Carl Vs Ben. Gold Medal lesson!! 🥇🥈🥉Comparing distracts performance mindset and puts it on something you have no control over— your competition. Run your race. Focus on your routine. Stay grounded in your effort, learning, and growth. What you need to do is different compared to the person standing next to you. www.braincodecorp.com • • • • #sportspsychology #mentaltoughness #focus #nodistractions #runyourrace #carllewis #danpatrickshow #highperformancehabits #honorthestruggle #bringthejoy #excel #staystrong #neurosportperformanceacademy #usatrackandfield #trackandfield #usaswimming #usagymnastics

315 + 100 lb. bands • This should be 315-325 in the hole and 485-500? at the top...something like that. I know the bands are 100+ in tension, because they’ll pick up the 100 lb. dumbbells I’m using for anchors when fully stretched, but they’re not fully stretched at the top of my squat.

To move heavy load confidently we must increase our familiarity to heavy load; this we do through increasing exposure to heavy loads. Do not think of numbers or percentages of your Max number, rather think of level of focus and effort. Ask yourself, was it heavy? Was I giving an honest effort? Did I allow myself to be distracted while performing a rep? The mind is the barrier, one’s own thoughts are the guilty felons of failure in the weight room! Learning to stay focused 1, 2, or 3 seconds longer is the pursuit of mastery! Your mind is a greater impedance to progress than your body weight. Have the spotter just feel the speed and trajectory of your first rep and then instruct him to help only enough to make the next few reps resemble the speed and trajectory of the first rep. Hip extension must be equalized with hip flexion for optimum stability; this is done by placing the foot behind the knee (closer to your head). Butt flexed and chin down, driving your chin to your chest will help keep a good press angle. Remember, stable on the bench means strong at the hand. #strongman #nsca #army #strengthcoach #powerlifting #deadlift #squat #health #weightloss #athlete #olympics #bodybuilding #workout #barbell #ripped #exercisescience #nfl #acsm #usatrackandfield #tedtalk #weightlifting #win #strongmancorporation #resistancetraining #weighttraining #stoneofsteel #squatober #strong #exercisescience
