Time for some #wednesdaywisdom

To me, this says that if you ever hope to be successful in anything (athletics, school, work, etc.), you first have to realize that it depends on you. On your work ethic. On your determination. On your ability to pick yourself up after a failure and keep pressing.

You have to see yourself achieving your goals before you actually get there.

Happy Friday!!! Try this out for some #focus on this wonderful #friday!

Persistence changes everything. Things get difficult and can look and feel like failure, but keep at it. When your back is against the wall and things seem impossible, dig in and keep going. That's when incredible things are achieved. You can do it!

Go do the impossible!!

Athlete Spotlight 🏐 💯

Shout out to @lillian_grace_u for improving her single leg power by 12.65% and 17.68% over 8 weeks of speed, agility, and quickness training!!! That's absolutely amazing!!!

If you haven't realized it yet, running is a single leg activity. That means each step she takes is now 12.65% / 17.68% more powerful, getting her to the ball faster. Who wouldn't be excited about that??

Ever tried Goblet Squats with a landmine? The forward lean at the end makes this a multidirectional lift. If you have the opportunity, give it a try!

Late-stage ACL rehab is the most neglected phase. The reason 90% of visits happen within the first 4 months is because that is all insurance pays for. However, studies show that ACL re-injury risk decreases 51% for every month an athlete continues rehab and waits to return, until month 9.

So if the best time to return to sport is 9 months after surgery, what do you do between months 4 and 9? Message, call, or visit us to find out.

Muscle strains can occur in the muscle belly itself, but more commonly, they occur at the connection between the muscle and the tendon. No matter where you have a muscle strain, it's no fun at all.

Muscle strains (also called tears) can have different severities. All of which limit athletic performance as well as everyday life. Preventing this injury is the best thing an athlete can do. A proper warm up, stretch, and cool down are good places to start. However, the addition of proper strength training can give your athlete another layer of protection.

Disclaimer: There is no way to prevent an injury other than laying on the couch all day. Instead, the risk of injury decreases with a good warm up, stretch, cool down, and strengthening.

Sports injuries are our specialty. Send us a message or give us a call to take care of your athlete.

Youth athletes today are always on the go. Game here, practice there, practice for this other sport somewhere else, and don't forget the tournament this weekend! It never ends!!!

The easiest things to give up for the sake of time are nutrition and sleep. But look at this list of things affected by sleep loss:
😐 Impaired cognition
😕 Impaired learning and memory consolidation
😮 Impaired mental well-being
😳 Disrupts growth and repair of cells
😣 Disrupts metabolism of glucose
😷 Lowers the protective immune response to vaccinations and repiratory infection

Poor sleep affects performance in school AND in sport. Not to mention a negative affect on immune response. And now more than ever, our immune systems need strength.

But sleep disturbances and inadequacy is nothing new to athletes. In fact, 50-78% of elite athletes suffer from sleep inadequacy. Can you imagine how much better these athletes could perform if they played with adequate sleep??

So why not start getting adequate sleep now, in middle and high school? Beat the elite in sleep!
