CGP Ep30 Strength Training is Overrated!!!

Overrated If you are over the age of 30 and your doing bench press you should be ashamed of yourself! Unless you are a professional athlete or still playing competitive sports you should get off the bench and get on your feet. I take that back, just get on your feet regardless of who you are! Burn your benches!!!! Get grounded and get functionally strong. What are you adding more plates to the squat bar or bench for? Curls for the girls? Come on, outside of your own vanity is there really any reason to have 20 inch arms and a chest that would make Kim Kardashian blush? “Hey! These pencils won’t push themselves!” In this episode I break down why I feel like true strength training has little to offer the common man. You don’t agree? Listen, learn and react! #BurnYourBenches

CGP Ep28 Coaching Tips for Training 3 Generations of Clients

3 Generations of clientsHere is a guide to things that each age group can do to enhance their ability to move better, feel better and ultimately play better
The most important thing to do with a junior is to play as many sports and give them as many movement experiences as possible. If you were to watch us working with our juniors at The Tour Performance LAB you would see them sprinting, jumping, punching, kicking, batting, throwing, spinning and rolling. What do all these things have to do with golf? Everything! Rotational sports all have the same movement patterning, power source and basic sequencing. The longest hitters on the PGA Tour all played sports like baseball, hockey, tennis and soccer. The sport skills learnt in one sport have direct transfer of sport skill to the game of golf.
The number one question I get asked on the Coach Glass Podcast is what is my favorite exercise. My answer is always the same. The deadlift! The deadlift is the best way to develop glute strength and lower body power. Some people fear the deadlift because it has the word dead in it. It is actually a very safe exercise for those of you who have good hip hinge and can touch their toes.Strength training that reverses the effects of sedentary life or sitting at a desk in front of the computer all day is the priority.
Seniors need to focus on moving better and feeling better to help them play better. For every decade you have been alive you should add 1 day of 20 minute mobility and functional movement training. If you are 70, you need to do it daily while 60 year olds can take a day off! Mobility and functional movement training consists of exercises that improve or maintain functional range of motion in your joints. Stretching, core training and moving in all planes of motion will help keep your joints lubricated and moving better. Try Tai Chi! This is a great exercise technique that is low impact, great for posture and stability. Stand in an athletic stance and pretend your arms are in water. Move the water back and forth using your own body as resistance. You can make the water heavier by isometrically tightening your muscles.

Hot topic 3 Tips for Program Adherence 1) Small manageable challenges to build a foundation of success 2) Behavioural Contract 3)Ask Why? All this and a bag of chips as McCabe and Coach Glass dive deep into this #HotTopic! This episode is coming off the heels of the Glass & Gill Show on Client Compliance. Thank you to everyone who got involved in the discussion on Twitter and Facebook. This is a topic no one talks about but it is time. Are you the problem or the solution?

McCabe always delivers a layer of knowledge to these debates and during our weekly conversation I stopped and set up the mics and got the conversation on tape for all of you.

CGP Ep26 Glass & Gill Show #4 Client Compliance

Glass&Gill4Do your clients comply to your workout programs? If not is it your fault or is it your clients? Have you ever fired a client? Glass & Gill share their experiences with trouble clients and how they turned a negative into a positive. Tips on how to get your clients to comply to your program and believe in your systems. Some times you need to put the lure of money aside and do whats right for your client and your reputation. Its all about communication. It is a skill that takes years of experience and thousands of hours on the training floor, face to face with your students. You need to understand what the client wants and what the clients needs. Deliver what they need while making them feel like they are getting what they want. Its all here in what we feel is a conversation that should have been had a long time ago. It is a topic that we all deal with but most coaches don’t talk about. #CoachLikeUWantToBeCoached @jasonglasslab @lgp_inc #GlassandGillShow

Screening Assessments #2 In this episode we are continuing the conversation about screening, assessments and testing. Are you a TPI practitioner?(Sport Specific Application for rotational sports), FMS?(Asymmetries and injury prediction) or SFMA? (Orthopaedic based assessment to uncover source of dysfunction) So which one do I use? I let the screen guide me. I start with the upper tier of the SFMA and let the athletes movements and sport specific needs guide where I go and where we end up. We bring up the concept of High Threshold training and discuss power/strength and anaerobic testing. I also share a story that is guaranteed to blow your mind… and your colon! #DreamBig #OverDeliver on your Dreams. #CoachGlass Visit our sponsors @mytpi @performbetter

CGP Ep21 NO FEAR! #DreamBig

photo 2
What is holding you back from accomplishing your dreams? Fear? Some of you even have fear of dreaming! “If I dream it I might just want it so bad that I would have to take actions….ooh no I don’t want to do that!” In this episode I share strategies to live a life without FEAR! You know what the difference is between the most successful people in the world and the ones who just wish they were successful? The successful people are not smarter, not gifted, don’t put their pants on 2 legs at a time. They understand their abilities and push the limits of their abilities by pushing fear aside and take ACTION to accomplish what they want in life! Exercise: What if you could pass through a door and everything behind you dissolved as you pass into a new world. There would be no consequence to your previous actions! What would you try that you currently aren’t trying? Obviously there are consequences in life but if you allow yourself to try this exercise you might imagine or dream of things bigger than you are currently capable of dreaming! Listen to this podcast if you are ready to live a life without FEAR and #OverDeliver on your Dreams. #CoachGlass Visit our sponsors @mytpi @performbetter

Tristan Mullally is Team Canada’s Women’s National Team Coach. He is one of the most talented and effective coaches in the game of golf. Not a golfer? Don’t worry; his insight into the art of coaching transcends any sport! Our industry is all about who you work with and how much you make. That’s why it is refreshing to work alongside someone who tirelessly overdelivers for the athlete to help them accomplish their dreams. As you know my goal is to “inspire others to greatness” and Tristan is a coach who lives by this statement and punctuates it with results. Team Canada found the pot at the end of the rainbow when they found this talented Irishman! Raise a Guinness to Tristan! Cheers Everybody! #CoachGlass #Undeniable #DreamBig #Overdeliver
