The 5 Pillars of Athletic Training

Every successful athletic program will be built around these central truths.

The world of strength and conditioning advice is full of impossible promises and complicated programs and methods. Every athlete presents a unique challenge and every coach will create their program with a different set of experiences, priorities, and biases. The differences are beautiful. They not only drive innovation in the world of athletic training, but also drive the world of competitive sports as every team and individual will train for their sport specific demands in a unique way.

 10 of the best at-home yoga workouts for weight loss, strength, and flexibility. Get the best flows from the best instructors!

 

With regards to my own personal health and fitness, I am typically all about strength training. Circuits, HIIT, weights, and every other higher-intensity workout is where I typically invest most of my personal fitness time. However, every now and then I’m reminded of the importance to slow down, stretch, and simply breathe deeply. This week, a patient of mine once again reminded me of this fact when he pointed out to me a lot of the things I was recommending for him were actually yoga poses. That’s why today for your “Weekly Workout Plan” I’m switching things up a little bit. Today I wanted to share with you 10 of the best yoga flows that I have found on YouTube! Grab your mat, find somewhere comfortable, and let’s slow things down a bit. Here we go…

I am absolutely not a yoga instructor. I can put together a killer workout that will leave your muscles sore and your lungs breathless, but when it comes to yoga I would rather leave it to the exerts. That being said here are some of my favorite yoga videos when I need to slow down a bit and breathe. I’ve also included a few that are really great workouts! I hope you enjoy them like I do!

Create Your Own Meal-Planning Cookbook

Nothing is ever as easy as someone handing you a meal plan, but you know your preferences best.

As a registered dietician, a common request I get is helping clients create meal plans. Theoretically, meal plans are easy, right? Get a plan and follow it. Unfortunately, it isn’t that simple. A plan written on a piece of paper still requires shopping, cooking, and planning. Successful meal planning starts by taking an active role. You have to find the perfect meals for your needs. By perfect, I mean ones that you can realistically make that keep you satisfied.

saturday morning at home bodyweight workout

Get up! It’s Saturday!

Happy weekend everybody! Aren’t weekends wonderful? Time to work, time to play, and time to otherwise tear it up! Make sure you get this weekend started the right way and get your workout in! This killer HIIT workout only takes 25 minutes, works your whole body, and is a great way to kick off your Saturday! Remember – just because you’re not going in to work today doesn’t mean calories don’t count! Let’s do this!  

This is such a great workout for everyone. We won’t count reps and sets; rather set a timer and go for as many reps as possible of each exercise in the time allotted. We’ll do two circuits of one cardio exercise, one upper body exercise, one lower body exercise and one core exercise. Confused? Possibly. But you won’t be for long! Ready or not – let’s get it started!

The Workout

1. Jumping Jacks – 50 seconds work; 10 second rest

2. Push Ups (modified if necessary) -50 seconds work; 10 second rest

The Fastest Way to Descend on a Bike Is Also Terrifying

The best bike racers fly down hills with abandon, but this fixie rider's superman position is next-level crazy. At the Tour de France, you'll see the riders sitting on their bike's top tube, hunching over their bars. This precarious position trades stability for decreased wind drag, but by comparison it's not all that radical. Their legs are still bent, and more importantly,

3 Things a Nutrition Coach Can’t Do for You

When it comes to personalised nutritional support, there are a few things no amount of money will get you.

Nutritional coaching has been upwardly trending in recent months, with thousands of recreational athletes signing up for online nutrition coaching packages from start-ups like Renaissance Periodization and Working Against Gravity. For a reasonable monthly fee, you get unlimited access to the industry's most successful experts with regular e-mail tracking, distance coaching, and feedback. It’s a world away from print books and DVDs authored by charlatans and reality TV stars, and it's wonderful.
