Online Masters & Doctorate Programs

With many traditional campus colleges beginning to offer online programs for graduate and doctoral degrees, I'm curious what experiences (positive and negative) others have had if they elected to go this route. I completed a Masters degree online while working at the campus it was being offered at. ...

Re: Favorite Vertical Press movement or variation?

Strict Overhead press.

Not only is it great for long term shoulder health, but one of the best plateau busters for other pressing movements like the bench press

Re: Salaries

People move all over the place and ones that do have good paying positions in pro or college sports are often tied to the sport coach so there is not a lot of stability there either. Getting attached to a good coach is the best way to make a good living in collegiate strength and conditioning. Gett...

12,000 full time position

There is a lot of conversation about the posting for a full-time job with multiple sport responsibilities that pays $12,000 a year at Louisiana Monroe. I offer a paid internship with the title of "assistant strength coach" to help build that position's resume. It pays roughly $13,000 a year with the...

Re: Data Collection & Actionable Data

Simple Test/Retest data collection is not frequent enough, but daily data collection takes time away from the actual training. We need to establish what our Key Performance Indicators are, marry the art of coaching with the science of coaching, and have constant feedback to make sure we're staying o...

No school like the old school

Cluster training is a time tested, old school method that works. It can be tough to implement in larger group settings, but we've had a ton of success with it, especially for our extremely fast-twitch dominant guys. Curious what other "old school" training methods coaches are using that are outside ...

Music in Weight Room

There was an interesting question on Twitter about weight room music.

1. Do you allow music?
2. Does it need to edited?
- If so, to what extent? Certain words ok, others absolutely off-limits (F Word, N word etc.)?
3. Who makes the playlist?

Re: Recovery Modalities

Peristaltic Pulse Compression (like NormaTec Boots) is a game-changer. Anecdotally, athletes love them. Scientifically, good research is starting to emerge. In addition to the benefits of the dynamic compression, getting athletes to lay on a table, prop their legs up, slow down their breathing and R...

Great Posterior Chain Equipment

I recently did a site visit with Bret Huth and Eric Murphy at Incarnate Word in San Antonio. If you aren't familiar with Bret and Eric, you're missing out, they are doing some really good things. During my visit, I noticed the Westside Barbell Inverse Leg Curl. If you're not familiar with it, it is ...

Re: Does excess dietary sugar intake cause inflammation in the body?

The word "inflammation" carries a bad stigma, but inflammation, in and of itself, is not necessarily a bad thing. Acute inflammation as a mechanism of getting back to homeostasis is a constant in humans. With that being said, a slew of problems occurs when the acute inflammation turns into chronic i...
