Baked Goods In The Gym | A Controversial Way To Prevent ACL Tears

How is your relationship with your colleagues and co-workers?

Do they bring value and joy to your life?

Do they bring toxicity?

Well, I am so lucky because I feel wholesome thanks to my colleagues.

My belly also feels whole thanks to my massage therapist’s baking skills.

I am so spoiled by Tiff, my colleague running a massage therapy business in the facility.

She bakes stuff all the time for us, which I know what you are thinking… Fitness people always stuffing their faces with junk food!?

Remember: One day of poor eating will not dent your goals, the same way one day of great eating doesn't reach your goal.

Flexible eating habits are mentally healthier than strict, binge-restrict, yo-yo eating habits.

So if you are going to eat unhealthy food (that term needs more context), know you will get back on track and enjoy the food. Do not hinder the joy sweets bring by stressing over them. I repeat… If you are going to eat it, enjoy it.

⚡CUTTING WILL PREVENT ACL TEARS⚡

When an athlete can utilize the stretch-shortening cycle during a cut, they will increase their acceleration.

We want high ground reaction force. We want phenomenal rotation of the pelvis and thoracic spine.

Here we have Coby reaching for my hands during this drill. Once the body has become bulletproof, we test the unpredictability sport brings.

Assuming an athlete has built an adequate strength and stability foundation, they must test the unpredictability of sport in a safe environment with a second pair of eyes on them.
