It’s been awhile since I last posted. Everything has been a bit crazy here. Juggling athletes, group throwing sessions, general clients and fitting in my own training has really spread me thin. This is what it takes to help people improve and become BEASTS! This past indoor season went pretty well as planned. Some peaked perfectly for the Meet of Champions, other didn’t but still competed at a higher level than the rest of their season. So, all together it was a plus. Everyone has started new programs for the spring season and the results were instantly known come training weeks 5 and 6 (6th wk is a recovery week). Following a 5-6 week plan is a nice spread out routine to allow adaptions. Once the 6th week hits it’s a drastic drop in intensity but maintaining the same exercises. This allow the body to CHILL OUT and actually have a chance to recover. Jason Bryan of Rumson Fairhaven High School had one of the best responses to the program. He took his 60′ indoor personal best (PR) to 61’3″! outdoors in 6 weeks! It’s amazing being young! The improvements are huge!
This upcoming week is the Penn Relays and I have a bunch of kids competing. I can’t wait to see how they handle the crowds and excitement. It’s going to be more of a learning experience than anything else. So, who is competing at the Penn Relays?
Vlad Castillo- Shot Put (Junior) Montgomery High School
Jason Bryan- Shot Put (Senior) Rumson Fairhaven High School
Michelle Mazza – Shot Put (Junior) Ocean Twp. High School
Derek Trottsdam- Javelin (Senior) Christian Brothers Academy High School
Jada Taylor – Discus (Junior) Neptune High School
Nick Pulli – Shot Put (Senior) West Deptford High School
Thomas Rue – Distance Medley (Junior) Red Bank Catholic
Do I expect big thing this meet? NO! We are not in a Peak Phase but there will be slight manipulations to spark the nervous system. The main goal is to have them peak at the NJ Meet of Champions (1st wk of June) then the New Balance High School Nationals (3rd wk in June). Check back after the Penn Relays for results and pictures!
