Thu Mar 19 2015 11:38 AM Chris Borlan retiring from the NFL and head injuries by lifterg

Following Borlan's retirement in the press is amazing.
He can and should be able to retire whenever and why he chooses, not my concern.
After that the media goes batshit crazy.
The 2 things that amaze me.
1. People act like they can apply the data from the NFL to other levels of football. A 300# player in the NFL, with a 4.8 40 is going to hit A lot harder than anything in High School, Jr High or Pop Warner. NFL players also play 2-3X longer than the school or most college players.
The data is just not applicable.
2. They draw a correlation between concussions and player depression and suicides. Maybe, but there are also a lot of personality factors too. These guy lose their EVERYTHING when they retire, unless they have a family and other aspects to their lives. I don't know what the numbers are there, but there are other factors contributing to things like depression and suicide

Wed Mar 18 2015 02:00 PM Tips or tricks to identify muscle imbalances? by scottyhall

Do you guys have any specific movements and or tricks you like to use to identify muscular imbalances with others? IE: identifying if a person is quad dominant in the squat or perhaps identifying an imbalance in pushing compared to pulling...

Just something that crossed my mind while driving today.

Found this to be a pretty good article. Any thoughts from the bunch?

Thu Mar 05 2015 05:31 AM Help me help a friend. by NurseKnuckles

Hey guys,

I have a friend who is in his mid to late 40's. He's just recently started going to the gym to lift. He has extensive boxing and kickboxing experience but very little weight trainng. He's a father of three very active boys and is a paramedic, so his hours are fucked.

His goal is to get stronger but he also wants to look like he even lifts. TYPICAL, right?

He is currently running stronglifts type training. The big three 5x5 three times a week. He spoke to me last night and indicated the squatting frequency is killing his arthritic knee. He also said he's looking fatter than before.

I told him that getting fatter was likely because of diet. I'm no specialist in this regard but I gave him a few tips and mentioned myfitnesspal was a good tool to track things. But more whole foods, "good carbs," lots of veggies and drink water was where I went with him.

I'd like to help him find something he can commit to. 5x5 for anyone is boring and it will likely not inspire longevity in this guy.

Has anyone had a client like this? I'd like to offer him something to match his goals. I am pretty sure if he finds something he likes, he's in it for the long run.
