NSCA Midwest Regional Conference
The National Strength and Conditioning Association's Midwest Regional Conference is right here in Houston this Friday and Saturday. I was honored when asked to present...now I'm downright excited!!! However I am not really all that comfortable speaking in public but it's something I am working on as I continue to present and look forward to more opportunities in the future to share my love of training. If I was standing on the weightroom floor I'd be good but standing on a stage in front of my peers...damn scary!! I'll be looking in the audience for my friend and colleague Raymond Tucker to keep me focused and on topic.
I have been a proud member of the NSCA since 1989 and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) since 1996. I will be presenting on Sandbag Training and NO I am not talking about the pretty sandbags that are balanced with handles...I am talking about heavy, awkward to pick up, grab the damn thing and create a handle with your grip or hug it and get it from point A to point B or pick it up and load it on a tall box or just hug it and start squatting!!
Guess if you want to find out why and how I use them in my training programs you will just have to show up and find out!! I will be presenting on Saturday at 2:30-4:00. Afterwards you can find me at the USA vs Ireland Rugby game at Dynamo Stadium.

Spencer Nealy signs with the Detroit Lions
Well the NY Jets screwed my man Spencer around but as he always does Spencer didn't give up and continued to train and he landed on his feet.....in DETROIT!! Last Tuesday he went up for a try out and was signed that day. I spoke to Lions' assistant strength and conditioning coach Ted Rath about him and Ted had nothing but great things to say. Got a chance after he signed to talk to Spencer about everything as well.
Congratulations and Good Luck you have damn sure earned your opportunity!! Sure am proud of you.
Play Hard...Train Harder...NO EXCUSES
