Random Thoughts What I have been up to?


Coaching I am currently working with Brashier Middle College baseball and Basketball team and also doing assistant basketball coaching. I am really enjoy working with the High school teams. A lot of them it is their first time actually working out and it is a whole new experience for them. A lot of high school athletes don’t know what it means to be in shape. So we get a lot of complaints and kids whining and we aren’t doing anything to serious. We  are performing the basics of strength training and conditioning.

 

Becoming Bulletproof

I just finish reading the Book Becoming Bullet proof. It is a not a very long read but it goes in to details on how to improve your well-being and to strength yourself appropriately. The book is big on improving a person’s motor control. Regaining what we have lost over time.  Some points they talk about is diaphragm Breathing  which I personally believe is very important. They talk about the importance of Crawling, Rolling and Rocking the first basic movements of the human body and using those movements to help reset a person’s neural motor control.  I thought it was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone in the fitness industry.

Blink
This is another book I just started and after the first chapter I am hooked. It talks about how our subconscious mind makes judgments and decisions on everything in our lives and that those instant decisions are just about as accurate as long drawn out decision that we make in our daily lives.  I have only read the first chapter so I can’t write too much about it but so far I am enjoying it a lot.
