Squat Testing – Spring 2016/Phase II

Spring 2016 – Phase II

Our Spring Program began on Monday, March 7, 2016.

For the past six weeks we have periodized our Strength & Conditioning program to increase gains for our Off Season athletes.  The Lower Body, Upper Body & Power workouts have varied in exercises as well as intensity & volume, but based on their previous one rep max in the back squat, bench press & clean.

During this six week period, our personally scripted workouts have incorporated corrective exercise work, mobility, flexibility & appropriate grouping of exercises to maximize proper total body strength & power.

In addition to sharing our program with many new athletes preparing for the Next Level, we have also contacted their college strength coaches to inquire about their requirements entering their college program and prepare them specifically for their future program.

We have made eating properly a major Focus this Spring and have tried to incorporate a sound Nutrition plan for our Athletes.  Nutrition is a key component in making progressive gains in any program, but we have tried to hammer down the importance of this component this Spring to improve over all results & gains.

In this video are 4 members of Don Bosco Prep’s State Championship Team:

  1. Brandon Simon – DE – University of Iowa
  2. Mike Maietti – OC – Rutgers University
  3. Malik Bakker – RB – Milford Academy (PG)
  4. Kiyon Santos – DB – LIU

After Day 1 of Testing, we are encouraged that our Athletes are making Gains in our Program and will be Ready Day 1 at the Next Level to compete for a position.

Pre-Game Warm Up: Check Out NBA Star – Steph Curry’s Routine

There is so much to “Blog” about when it comes to Sports Performance & Personal Training, but I just saw this 3 minute clip on Steph Curry’s Pre-Game Warm Up & had to Share.

It takes a lot of WORK to be a Professional in any sport, along with a lot of God given talent.  Check out Curry’s structured practice and distinct routine prior to his game to ensure he will play at his best.

Just like a golfer on the practice range staging his/her approach to the course, or a quarterback & receiver throwing & running routes prior to a game.

Steph Curry shows you how his relentless pursuit of excellence starts well before the first Tip-Off. Steph pretty much goes into the game after rehearsing for an extra quarter.

Check out this video & watch one of the NBA’s greatest pure shooters prepare for a game. Enjoy!

GE Insider: Ready to Share GE Training

For over 13 years we have been pretty firm with our “Gotta Know to Know” with regard to what Good Energy Training is.  It has been and is a Personal Training facility,although the last few years we have spread our wings and made our facility 5x as large on the inside.

Our Clients know the basic theme of our workouts based on the day of the week but we haven’t posted the workouts of the day or shared too much with regard to who we are training and how.

Clearly we are in the age of “Show & Tell” with so many different social media avenues to share, market & self promote individuals or businesses and this is now the norm.  We are going to attempt to give you an insider’s view of what is Good Energy Training as well as share our philosophy, tips & views on GE Training.  We hope that some of the information will pertain to you and you will let us know what you want to know about our Performance Center & programs.

We want this Blog be an interactive venue for you to share what you would like to know, and for our Staff to introduce GE Training to people not physically training here on a week-to-week basis.

We look forward to hearing from you and meeting new fitness enthusiasts & athlete’s from all over the country and perhaps the World.
