Gluten-Free For Athletes: Pt. 1

What is gluten, and is it our diet's latest nemesis? You’ve read anecdotal tales of gluten-free diets improving athletic performance. Gluten-free products litter the shelves of health food stores and sales of these foods were well over $2 billion last year. Due in part to emerging research on the topic and, more likely, to the food industry’s excitement over the potential to create and sell even more processed foods, gluten-free diets have been touted for their health benefits as more and more decide to give up foods containing gluten. With all of this media attention, it can be difficult ...

Speed Enhancement Workouts

Who isn't interested in learning how to become a faster runner? Even if you are not an athlete and just enjoy looking and feeling better, adding speed training to your workout will help you target different muscle groups, burn more calories, and help you make significant changes in your physique. But what is speed training? Contrary to popular belief, training for speed is more than just going out and running sprints. Rather it’s a dedication to the development of all areas that surround speed which include dynamic range of motion, static range of motion, and strength. I know those te...

Stronger or “Fitter” - What Are Your Training Goals?

Taking a closer look at the benefits of Crossfit, P90x, and other fad workouts for serious athletes. Current training crazes like CrossFit, Insanity, P90X, and the 300 workout, have prompted so many questions from athletes as to why they’re not a part of their prescribed strength training program that it came time clear the air. To do so, I’ve compiled my thoughts on each training aspect below in the hopes of giving better direction to athletes who are intrigued by the marketing hype. Without further delay, let’s tackle the most popular first: CrossFit These workouts tend to vary in natu...

If your fitness goals are supposed to take you somewhere “new,” such as increased strength, weight loss, looking better naked, etc. then you need a road map to help you get there. This is Phase 1 of a three phase (12 week) training program that will help you get stro...

Alternative Protein Sources

Break out of your diet rut with these frequently neglected protein sources. Traditional “bodybuilding foods” like chicken, eggs, protein powder, and tuna are staples for a reason: they’re all high and lean-protein, relatively-low fat, and easy to prepare. They can though turn eating into a tedious affair. To help offset that boredom, here are 8 foods that pack not only protein, but a variety of flavors and vital nutrients. I’ve included relative protein contents for each of them, though note that different amino acid profiles can affect how your body uses protein. Typically, vegetable s...

The Value of Casein Protein

You may be familiar with whey protein, but what is casein protein and why should you be taking it? If looking to maximize your lean muscle mass and increase your strength, proper protein intake is a must. For, as I’m sure you’ve heard, protein rich foods and supplements are the building blocks of quicker recoveries and lean muscle mass increases. But while most people now know the benefits of fast digesting proteins like whey, the vast majority are unaware of the importance of slower digesting casein supplements.

Athlete Cardio Workouts

If you’re trying to burn fat, these cardio options will be much more helpful than a slow jog on the treadmill. We’ve all had a great laugh while watching people do cardio workouts while talking on the phone, texting their BFF, or reading a magazine. We’ve all seen them time and again; those barely sweating, not short of breath, but all the while thinking that they’re, “getting it done.” The good news is, if you’re here that’s probably not you. You’re an athlete who trains with a purpose. If the purpose though is to get into better shape, burn fat, or simply improve your athletic perform...

The Best Predictor of Athletic Performance

Does being “functional” really make you a better athlete? Survey says, “no.” The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) has become quite popular in the strength and conditioning and physical therapy scene in the past few years. But while some say it can predict the athletic ability of an athlete, others, bolstered by a recent study concluding that FMS does not have precedence over strength and speed testing in athletes, believe it has nothing to do with athletic ability. So what’s the deal? Does the FMS actually predict athletic ability in athletes better than normal strength and speed testing?...

The OneResult Winter Program - Phase 2

Building muscle and burning fat this winter doesn’t have to be complicated. Here’s phase 2 of the program that will help you get the results you’re looking for this winter. With Phase 1 complete, it’s time to build on the foundational strength we’ve developed and begin Phase 2. The general template will remain the same, as there won’t be a ton of changes this month. I prefer to keep the base movements - squats, deadlifts, pull-ups, and presses, the same for month 2. Why? Because they’re the most effective compound movements out there for developing overall body strength. We will however ch...
