ACL Testing!

I should mention that I have a test for groundforce production and ground force absorption tha tprovides the information need to properly train an athlete for ACL Injury Prevention!

The test is non-invasive and includes a Strength Program specific to each and every athlete!

Here is a little snippet! (Naturally there is more to it than this little hop!)

The test is done on location so you can have this done at home!

Having two little gals myself I want to provide the highest quality training available to have themtrain safely and improve athletically.

You get the benefit of that.

Call me for your own private (or team) assessment.

ACL Injury Prevention

ACL tears are primarily a non contact inujury.

How do you prevent them? Or more accurately, reduce the risk of them occurring in the first place.

Training. A progression to plyometrics and dynamic movement in a controlled environment. Don't try to be a hero and start jumping around without a goal in mind.

Mike Boyle has a fantastic article on this at

Mike Boyle's ACL Injury Prevention Article

He is the man when it comes to training athletes and injury prevention.

So talk to a professional. Get assessed, do a Hop & Stop test, and start training those legs immediately!

Bad day for a workout?

It is an atrocious day out. It got me thinking.

What if you cant' go out to workout. Stuck in the house.

Here is a workout you could do at home. This is for athletes or beginners!

Do these 4 things in a row.

1. As fast you are comfortable: your stairs in the house for 45 seconds
2. Pushups: however you do em, 12, s l o w
3. Lunges: 45 seconds
4. Supermans: 45 seconds (lay on your tummy and lift legs and elbows off the floor and hold)

Just getting started. a. check with your physician first before you start! b. Do this 2 times
Experienced, go for 5

The difference is in the intensity. Make it hard for you!

This will wake you up, keep your body alert, hit every muscle in your body and help you forget the blah day that is outside.

Make some notes about what you would like to do the next time it is nice out. Keep a smile on your face and envision the fun you'll have.

Where I am writing from it is foggy a lot more often than I would like. I need to be "up" and this helps.

Keep healthy everyone. Have a great day!
