Leadership is confidence not arrogance//Steve Shenbaum

I met Steve Shenbaum(Founder of Game on Nation), while down in Florida and we quickly became good friends. When I say that this man was hilarious, I would shed tears every time that I we had a conversation and more so when I heard him speak. However his objective wasn't to make us laugh, but to be instill a comfortable confidence. What I mean is that we all want to be confident, but it cannot be mistaken for arrogance. Comfortable Confidence allows others in to share your happiness, while arrogance tempts you to stand alone. 

This video segments touches on a couple important concepts:

1. We are easily influenced by external information: tv, texts, social media and music. Before a gathering, meeting or sports event,prepare by only allowing your eyes/ears to take in encouraging info. Don't associate with someone via text or social media that will deplete your emotional tank. Why do you think people listen to music before a big event? It puts them in the right mindset. Because we live in a technological culture, its the same for social media, tv, podcasts and videos. 

2..Your connection with people, coworkers teammates start as you walk in the room. Your actions speak louder than words, so be able to show others that you are ready to make a positive impact.

3. Show up to inspire. That means you have to leave all pre existing concerns, conflicts and situations not at the door, but across the hallway. Give others a chance to play a role in your life.Walk purposely with the expectation that wherever you are is exactly where you need to be..If you don't feel that way re evaluate why you started. This will measure alignment. 

4.Surround yourselves with people that have your back. The same way that they show you that they care, you have to reciprocate. We weren't made to succeed alone. Bring others along with you. I guarantee that its a lot more fun!

Top 7 Benefits of Foam Rolling Everyday

This article explains (1) the do's and do not's for foam rolling etiquette (2)How to manage your fascia for  best benefits. "You're going to wonder how you ever performed your workouts without it"

The self massage technique deals with the myofacscia otherwise known as the fascia. But what exactly does it do? It wraps around each of your individual internal parts, keeping them separate and allowing them to slide easily with your movements.  It creates a sheath around each muscle; because it's stiffer, it resists over-stretching and acts like an anatomical emergency break. It connects your organs to your ribs to your muscles and all your bones to each other. It structures your insides in a feat of engineering, balancing stressors and counter-stressors to create a mobile, flexible and resilient body unit.

 Fascia can contract and feel and impact the way you move. It's our richest sense organ, it possess the ability to contract independently of the muscles it surrounds and it responds to stress without your conscious command. It means that fascia is impacting your movements, for better or worse.

 In its healthy state it's smooth and supple and slides easily, allowing you to move and stretch to your full length in any direction, always returning back to its normal state. Unfortunately, it's very unlikely that your fascia maintains its optimal flexibility, shape or texture. Lack of activity will cement the once-supple fibers into place. Chronic stress causes the fibers to thicken in an attempt to protect the underlying muscle. Poor posture and lack of flexibility and repetitive movements pull the fascia into ingrained patterns. Adhesions form within the stuck and damaged fibers like snags in a sweater, and once they've formed they're hard to get rid of, but redeemable.

How to Care for Your Fascia In Addition To Rolling

1. Move it: Take a few minutes first thing in the morning to roll around in bed and really stretch out, head to toe, just like a cat after a nap. Adding a couple yoga poses, sun salutation or downward dog would also be helpful

2.Stay hydrated: Fascia is made of water. It works better, moves better and feels better.

3.Stretch your muscles: When your muscles are chronically tight the surrounding fascia tightens along with them. Over time the fascia becomes rigid, compressing the muscles and the nerves.Use 2-3 second holds on given areas.

4.Stretch your fascia: Once your fascia has tightened up, it doesn't want to let up. Hold gently( 30-40 % tension) for 2-3 minutes 

5.Relax and replenish: Spend 15 to 20 minutes in a warm Epsom salt bath to loosen tight fascia. Make sure to follow it up with 10 minutes of light activity to maintain circulation.

Kobe says soccer is the best sport for basketball players

 Kobe Bryant ,NBA Superstar has achieved insurmountable goals including Five Time NBA Champion, Two Time NBA Finals MVP and Eighteen Time NBA All-Star. After 20 years in the league and reflecting on his career, he credits the game of soccer. It helped him to develop foot speed, coordination, communication & teamwork and endurance. Using the game of soccer to build athleticism in any sport athlete has both its developmental and anatomical benefits.

Developmental:increased multidirectional agility via foot/eye synergy, long distance endurance capacity, refining of acceleration technique

Anatomical: increased hamstring deceleratory strength,improved hamstring to quad ratio,improved hip mobility

Even outside of soccer, athletes should add 1 or 2 sport( based on sport timeline) to support with continual athletic competence, joint protection/stability  and overall rest/suppleness

Children's brain development is linked to physical fitness, research finds

Early specialization in sports has taken over this culture. Meaning,in order to be better at a sport, you must play the sport for as many hours as possible/year around. However, with athletic talent rising, and the game moving faster, the athletes ability to be in the moment and problem solve is a significant indicator. Early child development has shown that fitness increases brain memory.

In linking that to performance, that would correlate to better neural competency aka balance, reaction, coordination, body awareness and slowly down the road connect strength motor patterns such as a squat, lunge and broad jump. Creating healthy strength and power characteristics early will not only promote a healthy and active lifestyle but set the foundation to continually build other complex patterns at maturing ages when the pace of sport picks up and they need to be ready.  

Think about what we as adults do when a task if difficulty frustrating? We put it to the side only to be presented with the same situation somewhere down to the road. So what is our adult solution. The one thing that we don't like to do...yep you got it. Ask someone else for help. Being shown the basics kickstarts our creativity to finish the task. For a young athlete it is very different. Not being coordinated or having centered balance prevents them from being more involved in their sport or activity. They too become disappointed and shy away from the sport. Its not that they don't like the sport, they don't feel confident to keep us with the pace. These are all areas that parents often request me to assist in improving in their children. Start with combining performance & fitness 15-30m/2 times a week and progress overtime to link with sport
