  3. Like your site.As a former colledge,(little Pro in Europe)still like to play.I seem to be stiff all the time.Is that just life,or how can I get that flexablity and just that feeling of being loose.Granted I’m 49 but.Want to defy aging being an exuse.

    • Gary i think going a little bit lighter weight and over-exaggerating the full range of movements in weightlifting will help with your flexibility and stiffness. I have seen some improvements in my own flexibility after doing some yoga as well and think it can be utilized as a great tool for both strength movements and working on your flexibility. Stiffness is bound to happen with the wear and tear you put on your body through years of sports, however, these tips will help combat some of your tight areas. Hope this helps.

  4. I recently shared your blog site with family and friends. My aunt was recently diagnosed as a diabetic. In the month she’s been reading your blogs she has utilized the information in them to change her diet life style and lost 10 pounds! Thanks for all the information and sharing it.

  5. Kevin:

    I sent you an email via Facebook after tripping into your blog this am. I’ve been coaching at UNH for the past 20 years, split between our men’s women’s hockey programs.
    I’m extremely interested in trying to help my female athletes learn more about how various fuels affect their bodies and ultimately performance.
    I’d love to connect and hear your thoughts.

  6. Kevin –
    Also, enjoy your blog. Your interests are very in line with my own. I’m currently studying to become a health coach with Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN)…it might be a good source of information for you on the nutritional side. I’m learning so much and look forward to utilizing it as I train for future events (my next is Philly 1/2 in 3 weeks, NYC full marathon on Nov 4th). Your homemade smoothie is almost identical to mine (minus glutamine) and I, too, have greatly benefited from yoga (added to my life in 2009). My flexibility, lack of injury and mental health gains have been tremendous. I do many styles to fit my mood/need and really am a believer in how much it helps.
    Would love to connect offline regarding your blog.

    • Ryan great question. Any type of plyometric or sprint work as a kid will help build your fast twitch muscle fibers and help your speed and quickness. Things like jump squats and short yardage sprints are great for this. All stuff we can work on this summer. Thanks.
