Nutritional Seminar June 27th, 2009


Many of our clients have questions concerning diet, nutrition, meal planning and supplementation. To help answer these questions we are having a guest nutritional speaker Eric Talmant come to Evolved Athletics in June for a Metabolic Typing® Diet Seminar. Below is a brief description of Metabolic Typing® and I have also attached an event flyer with further details. Feel free to bring friends and family to this event. If you have questions please call 239-851-3940 or email crossfittb@yahoo.com.


Metabolic Typing ® explains why it is that a given diet/nutritional therapy works for one patient, has little or no effect on another, and can actually worsen a third. Metabolic Typing® explains why two people with the same disease require biochemically opposite approaches to get well. Metabolic Typing® explains why it is that for every book that says one thing about nutrition, you can find another book that says the opposite. Metabolic Typing®reveals why there will never be one diet that is right for everyone and why a given diet will cause one to lose weight, while another to gain weight. Metabolic Typing® explains how someone can eat organic foods, take the best supplements money can buy, exercise regularly, sleep well, and still not feel well. 


These answers and many, many more will be answered by 
Eric Talmant, based on 25 years of research in the exciting field of customized nutrition through Metabolic Typing® and the determination of individual metabolic requirements.

Top 5 Strength Movements for Basketball Players


Top Five Strength Movements for Basketball Players
By Callie Durbow
For http://www.elitefts.com/

Many people see basketball as a game of explosiveness, quickness, and power. While this is all true, a focus on strength development is needed in order to achieve these feats on the court and avoid injury.


Players need overall lower body strength, single leg strength, upper back and shoulder strength, mobility, and a solid core. The game also subjects players to pounding and stress on the lower body. Strength movements are needed to protect the tendons, ligaments, and joints as well as maintain muscular balance. Along with strength movements, there should be a focus on hip and ankle mobility, tissue quality, and overall recovery.


The population that I generally work with consists of middle school and high school athletes. Here are the top five movements that I use to develop strength in my basketball athletes.
Squats: Squats are the cornerstone of all of my athletic development programs. This exercise requires great posterior chain strength as well as core strength. I use variations of this lift depending on the age and experience of the athlete.We usually begin with a box squat to teach the glutes to fire and the hips to relax. From there, I use front squats because I really like the range of motion that it forces the athletes to achieve. We also cycle in back squats on a heavier day, single leg squats to mimic the single leg explosiveness required on the court, and overhead squats to challenge the shoulders, thoracic spine, and core.


Deadlifts: Deadlifts are another great movement to train the posterior chain. I love this exercise because it hits the muscles throughout the mid and upper back and the traps. It’s also good for grip training.I use this exercise on alternating squat days and progress from blocks to the floor as the athletes get more mobile in their hips. My athletes love this exercise because they can usually pull some heavy weights, and they feel great when they finally “engage” their glutes.
Overhead pressing: Many basketball movements happen over the head so my athletes always perform some variation of an overhead press. I don’t do much bench pressing with my basketball athletes because I want them to be strong and solid from an upright position.We start with a dumbbell press to develop balance and unilateral strength. Then, we move on to barbell overhead presses to develop a range of motion through the shoulders and stability in the rhomboids and trapezius. Many of the high school athletes that I see are weak in this area so it’s a great developer for them. As the kids progress, we throw some stretch bands on the bar to make the movement more dynamic as they go overhead. The focus of this movement is always a solid base and tight core, driving the weight hard over the head.


Chin ups: My athletes have a love-hate relationship with the chin-up bar. They hate the movement at first because body weight movements are tough. Then, they learn to love it as they see the progress and development that they get in overall upper body strength and speed development. This is a great functional exercise in terms of posture and injury prevention with the physical aspect of the game.The first step for our chin-up movement is to have a jump stretch band under one knee until the athlete can comfortably perform several sets of eight. We then progress to a full body weight movement, focusing on driving the elbows down to the ribcage and squeezing the lat muscles hard at the top of the movement.


Weighted abdominal work: Our weighted work generally consists of heavy jump stretch band pull-downs, medicine ball sit-ups, bungie cord sit-ups, and medicine ball rotations and throws (seated or standing). The extra implements force the athletes to really engage the core musculature and add a focus of athletic strength as opposed to lying on your back doing sets and sets of crunches.I want my athletes in the positions they will be in on the court with the ability to fight off defenders, not get knocked around. We achieve this through a lot of standing abdominal work and medicine ball throws. We keep the repetitions moderately low (10–12) to focus on quality work.


These movements and their variations have been very successful in developing general and sport-specific strength for my athletes. They are able to withstand the rigors of the season and avoid injury. Regardless of the level of athlete, strength development is of paramount importance to a successful athletic development program.

National Masters’ Weightlifting Championships

National Masters’ Weightlifting Championships

El PasoTexas

April 3-5, 2009

 

 Barbara Boyer competed in the Nationals Masters Weightlifting Championships on Friday, April 3rd. She won the gold medal in her weight class and best lifter award in her age group. She went 4 for 6 and her lifts were a 35 kgs snatch and 45/48/51 kgs clean & jerk for a total of 86 kg.

 

 The National Masters’ Awards banquet was held at Cattleman’s Ranch and Restaurant in El Paso on Sunday, April 5th. Following the dinner, awards were presented to best lifters, grand master lifters and Hall of Fame inductees. There were six weightlifters inducted into the Hall of Fame and Barb was one of them. Her 7th gold medal at the Nationals in April 2008 made her eligible for this honor.

 

 Barb started weightlifting at the age of 57 and has won gold medals and set national and/or world records every year since! Her total in this competition has qualified her to be a member of the USA women’s weightlifting team that will compete in the World Masters’ Games. These “Games” will be held in Sydney,Australia October 10-18, 2009.

 

 After a brief rest from intense training…and her trip home to Vermont, followed by a program of maintenance and weight strengthening…Barb will begin a training regimen in July to prepare for the World competition.

 

 Barb wishes to thank everyone (owners, staff and members) at Evolved Athletics for their help and support through this past winter. By the time she returns next November, the World Masters’ Games will be history and, hopefully, she will have more awards and records to share with everyone here at her favorite gym in Southwest Florida! 


Barbara,

Good luck in Sydney, Australia. Bring home the GOLD! We're all cheering for you.


Good luck,

Jeremy Barnett

New Pledge of Allegiance

Written by a 15 yr. old School Kid in Ohio :

New Pledge of Allegiance 
(TOTALLY AWESOME!)

Since the Pledge of Allegiance & 
The Lords Prayer
Are not allowed in Schools anymore
Because the word 'God' is mentioned...
A Kid in  Ohio wrote the attached...

 

NEW SCHOOL PRAYER :
Now I sit me down in school 
Where praying is against the rule 
For this great nation under God 
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites, 
It violates the Bill of Rights. 
And anytime my head I bow 
Becomes a Federal matter now..
 
Our hair can be purple, orange or green, 
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene. 
The law is specific, the law is precise. 
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice. 
 
For praying in a public hall 
Might offend someone with no faith at all. 
In silence alone we must meditate, 
God's name is prohibited by the state.
 
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks, 
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.. 
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible. 
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen, 
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King. 
It's 'inappropriate' to teac h right from wrong, 
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls, 
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles. 
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed, 
No word of God must reach this crowd. 
 
It's scary here I must confess, 
When chaos reigns the school's a mess. 
So, Lord, this silent plea I make: 
Should I be shot; My soul please take! 
Amen
If you aren't ashamed to do this, 
Please pass this on.
 
Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of me, 
I will be ashamed of you before my Father.' 


Not ashamed. Pass this on.

Week 1 - Level 1 Skill Test Completed

Hey CrossFitters,

I'd like to congratulate our first (10) Level 1 Test participants on completing their first weeks skill level exercises. Everyone did an amazing job today and each person passed their first 4 test exercises this week.

Only 8 more weeks to go. Keep training hard to be the winner of the CASH PRIZE. To date there is $100.00 up for grabs. At this rate it looks like we could be up to $800.00 by the end of the 8 weeks.

Remember, the 1st male and female to finish all 21 exercises on the Level 1 Skills chart will split the cash prize 50/50. You could walk away with $400.00 in your pocket just for working out. Now that's incentive to get in shape!

Time to train your butts off and start working like crazy to win some BIG $$$$$.
