Tournament Training

I’ve been running Tournament Training sessions every Sunday for the last few months with Mr. Roland and Ms. Jobin.   It’s one thing to train regularly in class and it’s another thing to train for competition.  These trainings are different because they focus on certain aspects that are strictly related to competing. Some of the things […]

Crazy Cross Training!

I’ve been training with Wayne Thompson and it’s been awesome.   For me, cross training is about mental strength as much as it is pushing through the physical limits. Wayne definitely pushes me and that is the adrenaline rush that I seem to need and crave.   He is all about plyometrics and resistance training using bands.

I Love my Coach’s Eye Application

My javelin coach Bill,  first told me about this super cool training tool for an iPhone but I really had no idea how helpful it would be.  This weekend I spent several hours in the dojang by myself going over my new pattern.  I filmed myself over and over with the video camera and that […]
