President's Day Variety

Just signed into Twitter... I should know better... it just fuels my ADHD. Anxiety triggers all in one place, haha!! So without further ado...

-Speaking of ADHD, it's just another symptom.

-The invention of the chair; another top suspect in the long list of our society's ills. The teams I work with are not allowed to sit on anything that resembles the posture of that seen in a chair. If a person's going to sit, it's going to be on the floor... and not against the wall.

-Frank Forencich wrote an excellent post on his blog titled, "Just don't do it: the case against exercise".

-Variation. The most important principle for health.

-Some days on my lunch break, I drive (I drive... isn't that sh**y) by a local elementary school and am enamored by the children playing at recess. This time of the year, the kids seem to flock to the piles of snow; climbing, pushing or jumping off of, making forts, etc... must be something to playing on hills, not sure exactly what (have ideas), but I'll trust the kids on this one.

-Sets of 4, 7, 9, 11... the obscure rep numbers.

-Well, teams are trained for the day, I am off to pick up my daughter early and we are going sledding.

Interesting how kids jump and play and land at all at "weird" angles.

Athletes play, cut and run all at "weird" random-like angles.

We train athlete in perfect symmetrical stances and even single leg work is rarely done in other movement planes, much less at new angles. Hmmmmm

rock on

Yeah, I am starting to think young children know EVERYTHING.
