Hello from Orlando, Florida.
I just completed my second day at TSAC 2015, which is put on by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).

This specific conference is geared towards training for police, fire fighters, and military personnel and thus far I have been very impressed with the content from the presentations I have attended.
Some highlights from the past two days are:
– Eric Cressey, MA, gave an excellent presentation on shoulder health. (Title: Scapular Control: Implications for Health and High Performance). I will definitely be reviewing and updating many of the things I currently do with clients in regard to shoulder mobility and strength.
– Lee Burton, PhD, gave an engaging presentation on how to implement a functional movement screen, and in turn apply the results to training programs geared towards individuals and groups.
– William Kraemer, PhD, and Tunde Szivak, MA, showed how adrenal fatigue can be caused as well as prevented in military personnel. Did you know excessive endurance training, coupled with poor recovery, can decrease your testosterone and growth hormone levels? Meaning, you get weaker, fatter, and perform at a decreased level.
Other highlights were kettlebell endurance training and nutritional supplementation planning.
That’s my update.
Now off to get some supper and enjoy this weather.
Is it above zero in Ottawa yet?
Have a great day.
