So.. long post time!! Brooooooooo, I can’t even begin to fathom what happened today. I finally met and learned from the person I’ve been watching since I started dancing. @willdabeast__ I still remember the choreo to upgrade you and clique. Hahah I used to put #immabeast on all my dance videos. I’m still mind blown. And what made this even more crazy is the fact the first person I ever learned from taught at my First Professional Audition ever!! @willdabeast__ Thank you for inspiring young cats like me. It means a lot. You open doors not only for the dance community but for people who didn’t have the resources to go to LA and train. I wanted to say more to you but I was still starstruck and nervous. I couldn’t stop smiling lol. Your choreo was sick and I know I’m gonna be sore for a while. Thanks again for coming out here from the tour. I never knew you trained in Chicago as well. You were relatable and humble and there’s not a lot of people left in the world like that! Also, I MADE THE BULLS 312 DANCE TEAM!!!! My Legs Still Feel Like Noodles!! Today is going down in fucking history!!
Did you know that lifting heavy weights puts you (or your athletes) at a “high risk” of injury? Jk, that’s ignorant. It still amazes me how many of these “just for the camera trainers” will work with athletes less than a handful of times and feel qualified to critique that athlete’s current and past training... Like bro, he could jump out of the gym before he met you. It’s pretty easy to have an athlete do some ignorant, non specific, non periodized, “feel the burn” garbage. What’s tough is having that athlete’s best interests at heart, caring about his health and his career, and convincing him to do the “fundamental” stuff really well - even if sometimes it’s not quite as fun. In case you’re still reading, heavier loads have all kinds of cool training effects and adaptations like high threshold motor unit recruitment, increased rate coding, improved axial tension and stability, muscular strength that is biomechanically similar and has transferability to the needs of many sports. Did I mention that generally, an improvement in absolute strength will allow you (or your athletes) to perform tasks with a reduced risk of injury. It’s important to understand that athletes are not thrown into situations where they are asked to move weight they are not ready for; without a good training background and proper progression. Or not, whatever. @thenbsca @mjstrength
4/5 from 4pt Range. I’m challenging @yo_prefiero_ant @litfuse_ @edmcghee1 @bgarrett_5 @andrew_choi9 @ryangaynor3 @ryan_cicenas @ryandeppen @joe_jackson_workouts @joehanelskills to match it or do better from the same distance (5 feet behind NBA line, 9 feet behind High School). Have to get your own rebound & dribble to halfcourt after each shot.
The @chicagobulls are almost on the clock. Will they trade up from #7 for Darius Garland or Coby White? We’ll have the countdown to 2nite’s #nbadraft#live from #bulls draft headquarters at 5&6 on @cbschicago!
