This past year and a half my training in the gym has been somewhat of an experiment. After years of intense conditioning and focusing on one goal, I was eager to switch gears and experiment with some different training methods.

Foundation Of Fundamentals

Fundamentals are the foundation to everything. No matter what sport you play - basketball, hockey, or soccer – fundamentals are the building blocks to improving performance.
