Olympics Anti-Doping and Social Media

Aug 2, 2016

Download (SVG, 9KB) I first looked at doing this article related to the Russian Olympic Team and doping issues.  There is a lot going on presently on this topic with additional reports and information coming out late this week. This particular issue has come up many times before but had not received this much ‘play’ by the media.  What could be...

Penance

Penance

Jul 31, 2016

Penance By Josh Hunt Remember the old school cartoons, where a bulldog in a bowler hat would punch a cat, and you’d see the cat fly through the air as its soul come out of its body?

I’m a stickler for function.  Everything I do when I am working on a person, teaching a stretch class or just in conversation, it always comes back to function.  How is what is hurting you impeding your ability to function in your daily life?

The Relentless Well

The Relentless Well

Jul 14, 2016

There is a well.  It was created in 2012 without anyone truly knowing it was happening.  There was an empty space, a place where there was much need but until then, no one was there to fill it.  Then Relentless happened.  If you read Howard’s article, it will very clearly give you the history of Relentless so I am not going to review that.  We are just...

Jul 8, 2016

I may try something a bit new.  I am thinking about starting up a video log instead of posting my training.  I feel I’ll be able to share more and in a shorter time.  I may chronicle my training for the US Bench Press Nationals.  Aiming to win back to back open championships.  Its never an easy task. I am open for suggestions and topics.  Would love to be...
