Podcast, Cats, and Jump Training, Oh My

Share This:

It’s a beautiful, sunny day here in Boston so this one is going to be quick.

1. Here’s a Picture of My Cat.

Dagny Sunlight

This was taken ten minutes ago, which demonstrates three things:

  • I’m 100% certain I was a crazy cat woman in a past life. Who’s the beautiful, beautiful Princess?
  • It is, in fact, a sunny day today.
  • My cat is like WTF!?!

2. Listen to My Latest Podcast Appearance

I made another appearance on the DeLeo Training Podcast recently. It’s always an honor to be invited onto any show, let alone for a second time in a matter of a few months.

This time around Joe and I discuss the importance of coaches having their own coach, the advantages of percentage based training, and why strength is the foundation for pretty much everything.

Except for being able to slay on a guitar. You don’t need a big deadlift to be able to do that.

 

3. Jump Training 101

In anticipation of the release of their Elite Athletic Development 3.0 resource next week, Mike Robertson and Joe Kenn are sharing some killer FREE content this week.

During the seminar itself they filmed strength coaches Bobby Smith and Adam Feit (<– a featured guest poster on this site) discuss their approach to jump training.

You can watch PART I of their presentation on Vertical Jump Training by going HERE. All you need to do is enter your name and email and you’re all set.

Trust me: Bobby and Adam cover a ton of material that is sure to help you and/or your athletes leap over boxes, cars, volacanos, but probably just boxes.

Don’t worry, Mike and Ken won’t spam you. Because, you know, they’re not a-holes.

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

FRESH CONTENT DELIVERED WEEKLY

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.

    That’s so awesome of you to share that Jump
    Program and I immediately forwarded it to head trainer of my gym who trains our highschool girls basketball team. My husband is the coach and asking gym to train girls to jump higher!! Thank you!!!

      Glad to do it Guzzy. Hope it helps. Something else they should look into is Adam Feit’s resource on jump training, called, coincidentally enough, Complete Jump Training: http://bit.ly/1Rf6Vgi

        I will thanks. On another note I bruised my toe trying to get that bit if air at top before switching hands in single hand KB swings (I know ?). Anyhoo getting X-rays but don’t think it’s broken and today was gonna be day 1 of my first challenge ever: 10,000 KB swings!! You think ok to do with bruised toe? It doesn’t hurt really and I’ll be leaning back mostly. Any experience with this? I never miss!!!!!

          My inclination is to say “if it doesn’t hurt or cause discomfort,” you should be good to go.

    great and funny interview on deleo training! i laughed out loud numerous times during the interview while walking to the train, probably looked a little crazy. but i love the analogy of strength as a glass container and your athletic abilities are limited by the glass container. added deleo training as another podcast to listen to. thanks!!

    • TonyGentilcore

      Giving credit where it’s due, I stole the analogy from several people: Dan John, Brett Jones, Mike Boyle, to name a few.

      Glad you enjoyed the podcast…..thanks for listening.
