If you’re waiting for it to be perfect to get started, to be happy or to find peace... don’t hold your breath. Perfect is an illusion. But that doesn’t mean fulfillment doesn’t exist. It means that part of fulfillment is constantly progressing and growing. Don’t make the mistake of thinking the goal is the absence of challenge and hard work because those are the path of weakness, boredom and eventually emptiness. It will never be perfect and that’s where you find your strength, your fighting spirit and your heart. Get excited for challenges , life is an adventure and you are the author of a potentially incredible story... Make it Work!! Get Up... Breathe... GO!!! Get Your Edge!!! #getup#makeitwork#motivation#believe#fulfillment#peace#heart#progressnotperfection#getyouredge#warrior#getstarted

Parents please read! 📖📖📖📖📖📖📖 We need to teach our young athletes how to make healthy choices based on LIFE.. Not just athletics. • Middle school and high school athletes don’t need cryotherapy to recover 🤦♂️- they need to put their phones and games and videos away and get 8-9 hours of sleep! And if they can’t get 8-9 hours of sleep instead of investing 1000s of dollars in cryotherapy and IV Drips how about investing in teaching them time management. Bottom line- put the electronics down and get what nature provided as recovery for young people... SLEEP! ! • Young athletes don’t need IV Drips or Vitamin injections- they need to understand the more color on their plate the healthier they will be. That means fruits and vegetables.. not skittles-AND they need to EAT AND CHEW the majority of their meals vs Drink them. I am not saying a shake is not ok- however 3-4 a Day is just stupid for a 14 year old baseball player! • As a professional who prides himself on educating our youth this trend is bothering me. It falls into the QUICK FIX mindset we have become! We are ok with kids on their devices before bed- all evening- and we wonder why they struggle focusing in class- focusing in practice- why they are sore- but let’s stick them in a what I call a frozen tube so they can play better on Friday nights?? WTF!!! Young athletes need to be taught healthy habits for life! Sleep is one of the most important! Eating healthy and drinking water is another. Look if your son or daughter is dehydrated- don’t take them for an IV drip, teach them how to fill up a glass in your faucet and drink what’s in the glass. We have been giving every recovery tool we need. We just need to embrace them. Make it easy- I am not telling people to drink Voss Water and have this elaborate meal plan- just learn THE BASICS. • If you are a pro athletes who travels daily- plays against the best in the world- some of these added measures maybe needed-But

Why The Conjugate Method? Training Story Below • This am we had one of our female athletes in. She has come in twice a week between 530 and 630 since late September. Today she had Hex Bar DL as her max effort lower body exercise. 1 year ago her PR was 235 for 1. She completed that lift last February! • Fast forward to this am. She was working to a max set of 4 today. It is only the second time she has done this exercise in 6 months-Today she did her PR(235)for a set of 4 WITH MORE LEFT IN THE TANK! . • So Most coaches would say.. “Well that’s just normal” No- It’s not! She didn’t train all summer with us-she travels with her club team-she has had minor injuries here and there- Oh yea- and she has only Hex Bar DL 4 times since last February. So the thought to get stronger in a core exercise you have to do that variation of the exercise to get better is 100% False! If you believe that as a strength coach read some more or listen to some better info- GET OFF YOU TUBE!!! • So why did she get so much stronger? 💪 She has worked hard - This is always the most important 💪 She uses Max Effort Lower body training once a week- but the exercises change every week- Squat-DL-And everything in between 💪 Some of the exercise go through a greater ROM than normal. So no the Bigger Faster Stronger high Box squat IS NEVER a part of her program. We use FULL ROM ALWAYS 💪 We use Dynamic Effort once a week at 40-60% of her max lifts but applying MAX FORCE and generating MAX SPEED on the bar. 💪 We use accommodating resistance with bands. . • If you want to reach your max athletic potential- Choose a program backed by science- experience- results- passion. We train our kids with all 4 principles. EVERY WEEK WE EVOLVE- EVERY WEEK WE LOOK AT WHAT TO CHANGE FOR THE BETTER! It’s never the same!!! . • Make the best choice you can make for your athlete and message us- email us-call us- walk into the gym- they only get ONE chance to be an athlete- and as
Have you ever had a co-worker or friend who needed everything to be "just so?" Someone who wouldn't quit until they'd done it all, and done it perfectly? When taken too far, an intrinsic fear of being "not good enough" can set in and unearth extreme perfectionism. . This could very well become a detrimental trait.

Surround yourself with quality people and so many lives can be touched. It is very hard to find people who totally give of themselves to other people without thought. I so grateful for these four guys- they do so much for our young athletes on a daily basis. They are selfless! The kids are their top priority. They put up with my crazy ideas. They come to work with the best attitudes. They are leaders. They are what @sportsadvantedge is all about!!! Thank you guys for all you do- Our kids are so blessed to have the best performance trainers in the area! Nicole is not pictured but I do not want to forget the incredible job she does with our adults in the am. Thank you to all my amazing trainers. Lastly- I want to thank their amazing families- girlfriends- fiancées - wives and husbands. Thank you for allowing your people to give of themselves to our clients!! • #edgegame#getyouredge#edgefam#sportsadvantedge#trainers
Very very early into the infancy of our new baseball team academy-I am very excited about what happened this am. • Sunday we had a player parent meeting discussing a lot of policies/ procedures and what not. A lot of it centered around parent coach relationships/ training and other baseball related info. We finished talking about being good people- representing themselves. Their families, our organization and their teammates. We used words like integrity, passion, self awareness and loyalty. • Today I followed up for parents who missed the meeting. In no less than 20 minutes after I sent the follow up email I received 5 emails from parents expressing gratefulness and happiness that their son chose to be in a program that stresses these values. It makes me happy that we have families that believe in what we are sharing with their kids. Baseball and sports in general will come and go for a lot of kids, but it’s the life lessons and work habits you take from sports that makes you successful in life and as a person! • Have an amazing Holiday to all! #thanksgiving#grateful#integrity#selfawareness#loyalty#getyouredge#baseball#academy#premier#strength#speed#values

When the 🖊meets the 📝 the dream becomes a reality. So blessed this afternoon to share in those realization of dreams for 4 amazing kids who have worked their butts off to get a chance to play at the next level. So much love and respect for @reaganklawiter2 @mollymcchesney @gabbygnewuch @meghananderson001 ! You are an inspiration to so many other athletes! You may be great athletes- but you are absolutely fantastic people! • #getyouredge#softball#baseball#swimming @zipsathletics @zipssoftball @northernstatesoftball @illinoisstateu @gvsu
Seems pretty basic right- basic chest supported row with 70 lb dumbbells- but try getting 68 reps in the workout with that-as well as all the other postural and pulling exercises. The higher the level of athlete the higher the level of commitment to the program and the volume and load. • For Bens dynamic effort upper body day he did 12 doubles at 135 with accommodating resistance. Moving the bar with tremendous speed and force!! Being a catcher he needs to make sure the muscles of the back off set the front side. 24 reps at 135 lbs=roughly 3200 lbs. So prioritizing his pulling volume at 3 times the load he needs to pull over 9600 lbs in what I call his complimentary exercise. So he picks a weight and I give him the reps. Seems over the top- but his goals are my priorities so doing and following an approach that has worked for so many others makes perfect sense! This works for baseball- football- soccer- for ATHLETES! Off set the dominate movement with load and volume in a opposing movement for great results! • • #conjugatemethod#strength#conditioning#getyouredge#sportsadvantedge#twins#catchers#foofighters#popeyeforearms#bombsquad#verona
Sometimes picking the absolute hardest possible task is what needs to happen for growth to occur. I hate Prowlers- but today had the @foofighters on the radio/ the gym all to myself for a few hours and said fuck it- 15 minutes and over somewhere around 650 yards later was done- laid on the turf until @madisonhomes_gj walked in and did what friends do- “are you doing anything?” • • Do not shy away from competition/ don’t let set backs stop you/ do let others pass you up! Yes Legs feed the 🐺- but remember the wolves run the pack! Aaaaaaooooooooo!!!!!
As we continue to change the game of Sports Performance she is always smiling down at me!! Having her as my purpose drives me to be the best-This may be the best 8 weeks we have ever had at Sports Advantedge and next year will change the scope of athlete development!! • • #edgegame#getyouredge#neversatisfied
