Inner Circle Updates
My latest Inner Circle webinar 5 Ways to Incorporate Movement in Your Programs is available. I received a lot of feedback and requests to elaborate on this topic after my past webinar on corrective exercises. In this presentation, I talk about the need to change our focus away from “corrective exercise” and towards “enhancing movement.” Really just a shift in focus, not technique, but an important concept to consider.
This webinar will cover:
- I discuss if we have gone too far with “corrective exercises”
- I overview simply ways to shift your focus towards movement quality
- How I integrate movement into various portions of my programs
- Why I think this is all so important

Are Velocity Programs to Blame for the Rise in Pitching Injuries?
The article I published yesterday may be the most important article on baseball injuries that I have ever written. Velocity programs using weighted balls and long toss have become VERY popular. They do enhance velocity, but at what cost? I use and am a fan of both, but we MUST understand the science behind velocity programs. We are overdosing and hurting kids.
