In our development program for coaches, "Coach's Prep," we often talk about trying to "break" our ideology. One of my biggest fears, in general and with DEUCE Gym, is complacency. One strategy to push progress and prevent stagnation is to continue to ask big questions.As a big fan of Nassim Taleb, I recently read through a ...

There is a long list of things that I am not skilled at. I was thinking about some of these things the other day and I started concocting a plan to get better at them. Without thinking much about it, I walked into the gym and began to work on a few of these things.I simply just went and did the exact thing I am referring to ...

As a novice athlete, a big challenge can often be not having enough motor control and body awareness to understand what one's body is doing in space. It's in these early days that athletes are least able to "fly by feel" and need the external feedback and eyes of coach. With experience, athletes can begin to feel their own ...

I get this question all the time: "When should I stretch?" This is definitely a very important question, and one well worth the time. Mobility is probably one of the most avoided pieces of quality training habits. I am just as guilty as the next athlete of not holding myself to a mobility regimen. First lets be clear, your ...

With all this talk of video analysis, I think it's important to continue to emphasis the power of visual learning. For many students, an organized leg cycles under the hips and extension at the top of a barbell lean are theoretical concepts. "Yea, I get it in theory. But, how or does that ever really happen?" is what is r ...

This day, April 12th, marks two years of Functional Fitness on the Bluffs in business. Exactly two years ago to the day, I watched Danny lead three brave souls through our first workout on El Medio Bluffs in Pacific Palisades. I couldn’t have imagined that the beach towels we used for mats on the rocky, dirty floor would ...

I caught a glimpse of a conversation the other day between a group of people that were all supporting two very clear points. The first was about how active they all were. They loved exercise, running, yoga, etc. The second thing they all agreed on was this notion that being sore was the enemy. They were passionate about the ...

Is there something that you're after? I mean, not necessarily with regards to training. I just mean in general. Do you have some master plan? A big fat goal?I hope so.We seem to attract people that say, "Yes!' to those questions in our community. Whether you own up to it or not, however, I'd argue that we all have something ...
