High School Football Workouts

High School Football Workouts to Increase Strength, Speed and Explosiveness at the Same Time

Football training for high school needs to be centered around workouts that address strength, speed and explosiveness at the same time. The outdated model of working on strength for 4 weeks, then speed, then peaking is a waste of time. It may work for the rank beginner, but after a few months, you’re spinning your wheels. Any kind of weight training workouts for high school football players must address all these elements concurrently!

Football is a game of speed, power, and strength. Your football training should address this. High school players especially have to continually build their max strength. Simply doing more reps won’t cut it. Nor does increasing strength in your 6, 8 or 10 rep sets! It all comes down to max strength.

All workouts should be structured like this:

Start fast, then go heavy, then do some reps…rotate exercises and include very football specific movements. The key is in knowing how to rotate and which exercises to pick.

When you rotate exercises, start fast, go heavy, then do reps, you are building strength year-round while also getting faster and more explosvie. Why would anyone want to waste all that time? Waste 4 weeks and your opponets have a 4 week head start on you!

While the average gym rat can get away with wasted movements, exercises that don’t do a damn thing and literally weeks wasted training on do-nothing movements, we football players can not. Our off season is short and there is no time to waste. So, while your non-football buddy can go F-around with Rear Facing Reverse Hammer Cable Kettle Curls, we have to get down to the business of getting faster and stronger. If he wastes time? No big deal. If WE do? The competition now has an advantage.

The New School Diet

I would say the education department is celebrating with the injection of 380 million smackers received from the government to help fund schools with the new healthy eating diet plan.   

Hallelujah and about time too, hallelujah my foot let us do our sums. If we break down this grand total between them all you will find secondary schools receive approx 6,000 pounds and infants around 4,000.

Feeding the five thousand on bread and fish should be left in the hands of a miracle worker, namely Christ. Schools a place of learning where children are taught to read and write and now on top of that being told what to eat

The introduction to a healthier diet plan is a move in the right direction for controlling obesity also giving the kids a chance to lead a longer healthier life.

But how on earth without a miracle can teachers get kiddies to choose between their favorite meals to the ones that are chosen for them?
More funding is needed in this department for this changeover to take place.

More varieties of meals to choose from then more chance of the new menu being a success.

But with measly pittance handouts from the government this task is going to be a long hard struggle for all involved.
We all know what kids are like if forced to do something their not happy with. They become stubborn and develop an attitude such like, no matter what you say or do, I am not eating that. Give them time; let them decide when they are ready to start eating healthy.

Listen up all schools.

When introducing the new diet, say nothing. Place a plate of greasy chips covered with a yucky Bovril tasting gravy alongside a fresh pasta salad. No contest in the eye of the young student. Take action offer the pupil some sort of reward for choosing to eat healthy like offering a
10p token with the pasta meal, indicating when so many tokens are saved they will have qualified for a special treat towards the end of the month.

If the child’s choice is the chip meal,then that’s fine. But believe me when I say there will be no Oliver Twist asking for more after they have tasted the gravy.

How is chocolate cake rated up against the banana? Schools why not try adopting a monkey in a zoo. Then let the kiddies know that by eating a piece of fruit before a fattening slice of cake they will be helping the adopted chimp/monkey lead a comfortable life.

Coaxing children into eating healthy couldn’t be simpler by beautifying the dish up with plenty of colour; this can be done by adding creative touches to the meal making it look more appetizing than that, of the dish that is not good for them.

For example, the plain scone versus the fancy cream cake sprinkled with rainbow colored hundreds and thousands with a bright red glazed cherry on top, in the child’s eye presentation and the entire extras win hands down.

Now for the minors weighing in at 13 stone and standing six feet tall, coaxing blackmail whatever you call it, is going to be hard. The only way to approach 5/6th form students is to point out the benefits of healthy eating. Should he/she choose to ignore the warning signs, then we ask ourselves did they learn nothing at school. In saying that, there could be a genuine reason behind their ignorance. Which brings us back to government funding? Not enough teachers to show them the way?

Students, pupils and kiddies eat healthy to live long enough to collect your pension

DeMatha Catholic Is the First High School Baseball Team to Use The Right Profile’s TAP 360 Pro-Level Mindset Assessment Tools to Better Develop Its Athletes


Hyattsville, MD (PRWEB) March 19, 2015

Although the Troutwine Athletic Profile (TAP) has been used by NFL, MLB and NBA teams for decades to better evaluate, coach and develop their athletes, it was not offered to college and high school athletic programs until late 2014. Many pro teams, including the Kansas City Royals, Washington Nationals and the New England Patriots, use the TAP as an integral part of their organization’s talent pipeline, development and mental conditioning programs. The Right Profile recently interviewed DeMatha Catholic high school’s head baseball coach, Sean O’Connor, about being the first high school baseball coach nationally to use the TAP in its athlete development program.

At the heart of the interview lies the main question for any prep-sport baseball fan – with a proven track record like that of DeMatha Catholic and a personal coaching resume that has earned Coach O’Connor an upcoming induction into the Baltimore Boys of Summer Hall of Fame later this spring, why add a pro-level system like TAP 360 to their program? Coach O’Connor was direct. “As I coach, I need to figure out what makes a player tick, what makes a player move on, and what is a great characteristic of an athlete and of an alumnus, that’s what sold me on the whole process.” Even though the coach says he knows these kids really well, he confessed that “the TAP takes it to a completely different level.”

Coach O’Connor has had all of his players take the TAP and is planning to use the TAP 360 reports to enhance player development and communications with his athletes. “If we have the tool to identify (player weakness and development opportunities) and help them, we are going to make them better citizens, better people, and better athletes.” That holistic approach extends to basic communications and trust. “If the players have a trust factor and we have a trust factor, we can be very successful.”

The full text of the interview is available on The Right Profile’s press and media page.

About The Right Profile

Private Security Professional Teaches Safety in Public School

ATLANTA, Georgia (PRWEB) February 13, 2015

An employee of national security company U.S. Security Associates is volunteering in his personal time to help community youth develop a sense of safety awareness. As business development manager for U.S. Security Associates’ Charlotte office, Craig Meredith assists local schools, businesses, and other organizations with strengthening their security postures. As a security service professional, Meredith knows the importance of establishing a culture where safety is everyone’s responsibility. Private security forces as well as law enforcement teams, firefighters, and other public responders are most effective when community members take an active role in safety awareness and reporting.

Twice each school year, Meredith teaches safety awareness classes to 4th and 5th grade students in the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System. Classes focus on “safety awareness” fundamentals, covering topics like the importance of reporting anything suspicious to adults and knowing fire safety basics. Meredith encourages children to go home and ask their parents, “What would we do if there was a fire?”

Meredith has plans to bring in guest speakers to address the students next year. “I’d like to coordinate with local law enforcement to show students how security and law enforcement work together to address common concerns.” By spreading the message of safety awareness as part of his work with Men in Blythe, a volunteer group affiliated with BeThereDad® and the Charlotte Mecklenburg PTA, Meredith is personally demonstrating how community groups and private citizens can influence overall security and safety.

Building productive and harmonious relations between community members, private security, and law enforcement is a hallmark of a unique private policing approach developed by Meredith’s employer, U.S. Security Associates. The security company is currently rolling out its Community Assisted Problem Solving (CAPS) program nationwide with remarkable results. In 2009, the RAND report recognized the successful reduction of crime in Hollywood, where the company’s affiliate Andrews International has implemented the CAPS program. In the first two years of the program alone, in an area where homelessness, drug abuse, and mental illness are rampant, the number of arrests dropped nearly in half, from 2,349 arrests in 2007 to 1,234 in 2009.

About Men in Blythe and BeThereDad

Men in Blythe is a volunteer group of motivated fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, and other significant role models who want to exercise a positive influence on the campus life of Blythe Elementary students. BeThereDad® is an organization whose purpose is to help dads become engaged and stay involved in the lives of their children. BeThereDad partners with the PTA to help dads establish their own groups, such as Men in Blythe, within their schools, so they can participate in activities with their children, provide service to their schools, and encourage each other.

ABOUT U.S. SECURITY ASSOCIATES

U.S. Security Associates (USA) is North America’s security solutions leader, with 160 locally-responsive offices providing premier national security services and global consulting and investigations.

UMass Medical School, Worcester Polytechnic Institute Developing Smartphone App to Address Stress Eating


WORCESTER, Mass. (PRWEB) February 02, 2015

Researchers at UMass Medical School and Worcester Polytechnic Institute are developing a stress-eating smartphone app that will help users better understand why they overeat, with the support of a $ 2 million award from the National Institutes of Health.

Development of the “RELAX” application and a pilot clinical study to evaluate its effectiveness will be led by Sherry Pagoto, PhD, associate professor of medicine at UMMS, and Bengisu Tulu, PhD, associate professor in the WPI Foisie School of Business, joint principal investigators for the grant.

“Most commercial apps available today focus on tracking diet and exercise, but do not help the user understand why they are eating so much and/or exercising so little,” Dr. Pagoto said. “Our clinical and research experience suggests that stress is a very common trigger for overeating and it is a barrier to exercise.”

RELAX will have two components: a mobile application that will enable patients to track their daily activities using a smartphone and a web-based tool clinicians can use to access patient information to help inform treatment.

“We want to use technology to help patients in real time, during their daily activities, and also to enhance the effectiveness of the time they spend face-to-face with their physician or counselor,” Dr. Tulu said.

Using text inputs, barcode scanning, and GPS technology, the RELAX patient app will track eating patterns, daily activities, exercise, patient-mood, and stress inducing events. The app will provide the patient with an itemized list of foods consumed, indicate the times of day identified as high-stress moments, and illustrate the relationship between food intake and stress. The information collected will help the user to better understand his or her habits when it comes to emotional or stress eating.

For example, the patient-facing application will provide coaching for dietary choices or guided stress-reduction exercises to lessen the likelihood of overeating.

“Imagine a person driving into the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant, at a certain time of day, and getting prompted with a message asking them to think about what they are feeling and whether or not it is the right time to eat,” Tulu said.

Clinicians will be able to access their patients’ information collected through the RELAX patient app using the web-based application. The web tool will present information as easily digestible visual displays and feedback reports for the clinician to review.

Much of the time during traditional weight-loss counseling sessions is spent reviewing paper self-monitoring records and soliciting information from the patient about factors impacting their adherence, such as stress and stress eating. By using the RELAX web tool, clinicians can more quickly get to the heart of causal factors behind the patient’s eating habits, which can be difficult to identify using traditional counseling. The research team believes RELAX will help patients achieve better outcomes with fewer visits to their doctor or counselor.

The researchers hope the interactive design and the clinician’s ability to engage with the patient in a more data-rich way, both unique features of the RELAX application, will enable a more comprehensive approach to counseling patients about weight and stress management.

“We too often think of clinical problems in isolation and develop interventions focused on one problem,” Pagoto said. “The reality is that patients more often than not experience multiple issues that are very entangled. Just like clinical care, apps need to address the ‘whole patient’ to be maximally effective.”

RELAX is a three-year project. The first phase will establish the clinical and technical requirements for the mobile app and web-based tools. The second phase will cover technology development and usability analysis. The final phase will be a pilot clinical trial of the prototype RELAX applications with patients at UMMS and an analysis of the application’s impact on program delivery and costs.

“Part of our hypothesis is that the RELAX applications will result in a more cost-effective way to deliver this clinical program, so we also want to test that,” Tulu said. “The grant includes a rigorous business-case analysis of the prototype and pilot trial.”

RELAX is the latest in a series of collaborative research and development projects that blend the clinical and behavioral science expertise at UMMS with the engineering and computer science capabilities at WPI to help improve patient outcomes. Previous joint projects include development of a mobile application to promote weight management and a novel application and imaging system to help people with severe diabetes better manage their condition.

Also working on the RELAX program as co-investigators are UMMS faculty Edwin Boudreaux, PhD, professor of emergency medicine; James Carmody, PhD, associate professor of medicine; and Yunsheng Ma, MD, PhD, associate professor of medicine. The WPI co-investigators are Emmanuel Agu, PhD, associate professor of computer science; and Justin Wang, PhD, assistant professor, WPI Foisie School of Business.

MMI Launches Aquatic Exercise Classes at Frederick Kids First Swim School


Frederick, Maryland (PRWEB) January 24, 2015

The Mid-Maryland Musculoskeletal Institute (MMI), local experts for things related to muscle, bone and joint care, has a unique way to help succeed with New Year’s resolution to get into shape in 2015.

In conjunction with the Kids First Swim School located in the FSK Mall, MMI now offers Aquatic Exercise Classes. This marks the first endeavor of its kind for the orthopaedic practice as it joins forces with a local sport facility to offer a fast growing and popular exercise option to residents of the Frederick area.

All exercise has a range of health benefits, but water-based work-outs can be a fun way to bring variety into exercise routine while taking full advantage of the benefits that the buoyancy of exercising in water provides. MMI’s Aquatic Exercise Classes build cardiovascular fitness and strength. Just like swimming, water exercise classes are easy on joints, yet challenging enough to help reach new levels of fitness.

Instructor, Jennilee Ambush, Occupational Therapist with MMI, teaches the classes Monday and Wednesday mornings. The 10:00 AM class Low-Impact Water Exercise is designed for those with limited mobility or injuries, while the 11:00 AM Cardio Fitness class is designed for those looking for a low impact, high cardio exercise option. When asked, Ambush said “Because of their low-impact format, our Aquatic Exercise Classes are ideal for those who have pain when doing most land based exercise such as people suffering from low back pain, arthritis, or injuries to the lower extremities. It’s also beneficial for those preparing for, or recovering from hip, knee, or back surgery. Without the limitations of gravity, the water helps you to become stronger, reduce pain, and provides the ability to do more in the pool than on land, resulting in a faster recovery.”

The association for the two organizations began in 2014 with the launch of an Aquatic Therapy Program for patients at MMI. Ambush works with many developmentally delayed children and found that the benefits of therapy in a warm water pool allowed for increased participation, range of motion, strength, endurance, and balance. The idea to expand to exercise classes for the general public seemed to be the next logical step for the energetic Ambush who is a former swimmer and lifeguard. Ali Fox, manager of the Frederick location noted that “Kids First Swim Schools offer these classes at most of their locations but they are operated by staff of the swim school. The opportunity to have an occupational therapist like Jennilee managing and teaching the classes is a real bonus for our Frederick patrons.”

The Aquatic Exercise Association reports that one can expect to burn 400 to 500 calories per hour when exercising in the water. Additionally, water offers 12 times the resistance of air, which helps to improve muscle strength. Ambush utilizes simple devices such as hand-held paddles, foam noodles and kickboards in the classes to add further resistance increasing the intensity of the aquatic workout.

The Mid-Maryland Musculoskeletal Institute offers a full range of services for muscle, bone and joint problems and is ocated at 86 Thomas Johnson Court in Frederick, Maryland as well as 1829 Howell Road in Hagerstown, MD and 3280 Urbana Pike in Ijamsville, MD.

Kiko Labs Unveils New Neuroscience-Based App for Children to Challenge Critical Skills Every Child Needs for School Success


San Carlos, Calif (PRWEB) January 15, 2015

Kiko Labs, alongside neuroscientists, today announced Kiko’s Thinking Time for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, a unique adaptive suite of games for children based on neuropsychological exercises to challenge the foundational skills needed for school success. By playing the app, children exercise critical skills like executive functions and reasoning in fun workouts.

As 90% of a child’s brain develops in the first 5 years of life, the early, formative years are the ones that matter most. *Children with stronger working memory, inhibition and attentional skills have been found to make larger gains on tests of early math, language and literacy development. Early research shows promise that these skills can be trained. Kiko Labs collaborated with neuroscientists from Harvard and UC Berkeley, and with support from the U.S. Department of Education, to design Kiko’s Thinking Time from behaviors and evidence-based techniques drawn from scientific studies showing early promise in improving the critical cognitive skills related to learning capacity.

“At Kiko Labs, we believe that every child deserves to fulfill his or her potential. Our learning experience called Kiko’s Thinking Time is a training program designed to help them do that,” said Grace Wardhana, co-founder and CEO, Kiko Labs. “This app for children targets fundamental skills like executive functions and reasoning that are the necessary groundwork for learning in kindergarten and beyond. Our goal is to make mental exercises fun.”

About Kiko’s Thinking Time

In just 10 minutes, children aged 3 – 7 can go on a customized adventure with Kiko the Fox to help her in her quest for treasure. They play a series of 10 games where they meet cute animal characters in Kiko’s village and help them with their activities. Through fun mental exercise, children who play Kiko’s Thinking Time challenge skills like memory and focus that will help them become more attentive, focused learners in school. After the child is finished playing, the app provides reporting tools for parents to chart progress over time.

“Kiko’s Thinking Time gives kids training wheels to practice critical skills like working memory and reasoning. It does this by providing a structured environment, and by designing progression in a rigorous, hierarchical way.” – Dr. Jenny Thomson, neuroscientist, former associate professor, Harvard University

Reaction from Parents, Teachers, Clinicians

Today’s announcement builds upon a successful beta version of Kiko’s Thinking Time, which recorded nearly 700,000 sessions of training activity. The response from children, their parents, teachers and clinicians has been impressive:

●    “It is a great mix of a playing and learning app – it includes the perfect skills while keeping kids interested.” – Rebecca Brian, parent of three

●    “Every classroom should have this app. I think it is wonderful and will really benefit the classroom. The data is excellent and will help me lead my instruction.” – Jaquetta Wallace, head teacher, Oakland Unified School District

●    “I am an ABA therapist and work with a variety of children on the autism spectrum. I have been using it with my clients to help them improve their focus, ability to switch between tasks, etc. I find it very useful and I love that they enjoy it as a game!” – Yohanka Allen, clinician

Availability and Pricing

Kiko’s Thinking Time is available for free in the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at http://www.appstore.com. When parents are ready for more content they can upgrade for unlimited access to all 10 games and a new game added monthly for $ 7.99/month or $ 49.99/year.

John Marshall Law School Program to Focus on Best Ways to Seek Order of Protection Remedies for Domestic Violence Survivors

(PRWEB) October 31, 2014

The Illinois Domestic Violence Act provides protections and remedies to empower domestic violence survivors. But some key remedies have proven difficult to obtain and implement.

A Nov. 6 program at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago will present new developments and best practices in implementing five such remedies in civil court. They are: firearm relinquishment, payment of support (child and spousal), temporary legal custody, payment of various types of losses (including attorney’s fees), and counseling.

Attendees also will learn about recent domestic violence court initiatives to make all remedies available to survivors, how to make a record for appeal, and the results of recent appeals of cases where there has been an alleged improper denial of remedies. The program will feature legal and domestic violence experts including Sebastian T. Patti, Presiding Judge of the Domestic Violence Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County, and Charles Stoops, director of the Center for Advancing Domestic Peace.

John Marshall’s Domestic Violence Clinical Advocacy Program supports survivors of domestic violence by (1) collaborating in “field placement clinics” where students, under the supervision of pro bono attorneys or John Marshall-partner legal assistance organizations, perform legal consultations and legal assistance using a trauma-informed and empowerment model; (2) developing educational and training programs for the general public, advocates, law students, and attorneys; (3) developing legal forms that enable survivors to exercise their rights under Illinois statutes to overcome barriers they face to becoming safe; and (4) crafting empirical-based policy proposals to improve the law’s response to domestic violence.

EVENT DETAILS:

What:     Best Practices When Seeking Order of Protection Remedies    

When:     Nov. 6, 2014, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Where: The John Marshall Law School, 19 W. Jackson Blvd., Chicago

1.5 CLE credit hours available to Illinois attorneys
