"Just not have the players for his style. I i will give this to to steve adagio And this is from talking to a lot of people who are who are in the now. I mean his offensive line cupboard was virtually bear and even bobo knew that late in his You know in his tenure he tried to recruit a bunch of offensive linemen But yeah i think You you look. The offensive line was completely bare. I don't think the players that That adagio brought over for boston. College athletic enough. I don't think they're strong enough if you looked at the interior offensive line There was a lot of penetration there So i think that part yeah. It is difficult to transition from abobo. Style offense to steve adagio style. Offense and i think one of the things that's handcuffing him. is is the lack of offensive line. But you know however you also look They don't have a lot of threats. I mean they have couple of nights tight ends and in trae mcbride and can't butler and dante writes up a home run Ball threat which you know if if cintel complete that pass early in the game. Who knows but i think teams are gonna figure out pretty quickly offensively and i think it's going to be difficult pursue to move the ball. I agree and i think we may be in store for difficult year. Foresee issue hopefully not the case and they can shake this off and maybe shocks and people and and get things rolling But i don't necessarily think that's gonna be the case so miles. Do you think that they are going to be bowl. Eligible at the end of the year eligible. Yes or no not in the last three wins. Gets you bowl eligible though. I really don't i if they don't be vanderbilt A utah state goes on the road and beat washington. State washington state is kinda like vanderbilt right a lower tier power five team. But i don't see many wins on the on the schedule. Maybe new mexico I don't think they'll probably be favored in any of the other games And then there's also the concern. If you if you lose the vanderbilt toledo is is supposed to be a very good mac team. I will obviously pretty good. And then you start out with san jose state at home on homecoming in october nights. If you're on five what do you think goes through the minds of the players and coaches at that time and the fans yeah could shape up to be a refugee miles We've talked about. This again. Are for before vip guests miles blue mart with colorado and joining us miles. One of the things that you do. You're you're an umpire for For baseball and softball basketball referee. Your high up there in the high school official in in a high school official world Miles i've had more people ask me this year. Why are there so many thursday night games for for high school football The shortage of referees man. It it's it's it's really alarming right now in the state of colorado. Oh yeah i mean. They're moving their moving football games all over the place because they can't they don't have enough officials in softball this year. We're playing on virtually every night which usually the main nights used to our main days used to be tuesday thursday but now they're playing all over because we have a shortage up here in fact we've we're actually dropping down into the longmont area to grab some of their On pires umpire games up here. So yeah football's really struggling. From what i understand. And they're having to move games There's a a you know. There's just a real critical shortage and You know. I don't think that's really gonna probably be fixed anytime soon especially You know with coal hanging on even though we're pretty much back to normal. There's no mask there's nothing like that You know when when we're officiating. I think there's there's maybe a hangover and some people who laughed officiating last year Just choosing not come back. Let me ask you the million dollar question. How do you get more people out there. How do you get more referees. Out there You know the The the let's see the officials association in colorado has a as a retention committee That is is trying to one retain officials and also recruit officials and one of the things. I think that's that's probably what work out. The best is is to try and get more officials to be multi sport officials because Once you're ready officiate. You know you kind of you. Kind of know how everything works. And i think it's easier to get those people to officiate more than one sport. And so i think that's the first thing you have to do. The second thing they like to do. Is you know go after a high school athletes college athletes You know and try and get those people to To get initiated and get their feet wet just to see if they would like it because again when you officiate at a lot like playing the game You know you have a team and you're trying to do your thing and So you know you would appeal to those people but I don't know really how fruitful. That's ben and it goes back to a lot of you know pe- officials tired of dealing with What parents and coaches would you say. That's the primary factor. Would you say the low pay. Think colorado's in the i know colorado's in the bottom third and in the us for what they pay high school officials. Is that the primary reason. Or is it the the the deal with the parents and the coaches. Yeah it's the verbal abuse You know she a colorado has done a better job you know they. They've increased. dr are pay. I think Softball now is like sixty dollars. A game which. I think most of the sports are about sixty dollars a game and and you know what that's not great but it's not bad and but no i think it's more You know going to a place. You're there for maybe like four hours by the time you travel and you do the game and everything and you come home with sixty bucks and you've been verbally abused You know some people right. Some people tolerate that more than others and Those who don't They're probably not gonna last long. They're talking with miles bloomberg outta the colorado in miles last story that i kind of wanted to get to here. It was a story. A molly bohannon out of The caller i don't have this yesterday. that we talked about and we actually were able to acquire the the email that was sent out to parents from resurrection christian schools. You know threatening to call the cops on the libra county health department This is just getting bizarre man. I i saw the message that we got that. What's happening. But i was still out oregon then and then when molly pursued the story and i read the story while this is. This is pretty incredible. this is basically you know a squall Really standing up to the county health department and It's getting kind of ugly to be quite to be quite honest. So they were scheduled to be there. the health department scheduled to there yesterday. Miles do you know if that happened. Molly think sent a message to us that while she was there she did not see anybody there So i don't know what happened later on 'cause i was Up in the mountains yesterday but that was the last.

You can turn away from The guy he just schooled or the guy he just knocked out and and celebrate with your team. It's better for us to model good behavior at the professional level. Then to just be irresponsible and think. Oh i i like to see this guy gets face in his finger just because it's fun you that's crap and it's all it's all contagious and it just grows and grows and grows in next thing you know all we're seeing on sunday is a bunch of taunting. I think the nfl doing a good job of making sure that this rule is enforced. Main thing main thing is the game and by the way where do you think. High school athletes college leads. Where did they model their game. But you don't see it on the roads and they do it themselves. Don't tolerate it and pop one or a high school or even college but once you get to the nfl grown man. A man's games a man's league and if you wanna talk a little trash after you make a great play against the player. There's nothing wrong with the trash. Talk talking travel talk. We're not talking about the would tony. Yes we know. We're talking about making a physical action. Make no what i thought. He was body sign. Or as the incomplete sign and yes physical move. It's exactly the same rule in the nba. You're allowed to turn around and say incomplete. You're not allowed to get in somebody's face and say incomplete pass. I you know what i would. I'd walked right up for celebrated by the way. I'm all for celebrating more celebrations. I think the limits on celebrating touchdowns are ridiculous. I think i love the fact that people celebrate. Listen at taunton. No there's a difference between taunting and celebrating. So you would not difference. You would not want nicole. Roby coleman to stand over that dude intel him out on a waffle house frying pan. No i don't know if that was taunting or was that it wasn't he said after he sent it out after he sent it out on his instagram. He didn't he didn't taunt them. But i think you can taunt afterwards as social media. That's okay as long as you don't taught a guy after you heard him. If guys not hard heard us talk and transportation say jalen ramsey decay matt guy or jalen ramsey entire tyreek hill that those guys are just having a little getting rid of this rule also in the nba young. You think there should be trash-talking. Yes i love. Gary payton was fun to watch and stuff who is the best thing and taunting mike who is trash. Tucker you played against or with played with paired larry bird was pretty good. But i stayed away from him. I didn't want to talk to him. I know what. I'm talking to me. Because i didn't want to embarrass me. Say nothing to larry bird. Kevin mchale didn't say anything to me robert parish. Didn't i kept my mouth shut. I didn't want on anybody because those guys were so good. I was playing against me. I didn't want it to give me more incentive to embarrass me further. Well there are. Some guys like people always want marvel at john mcenroe old videos of john mcenroe and and how he behaved on the tennis court and the way he berated officials and you know if mason which was arguing you would have thrown john. Mcenroe out of the sport again. That's arguing at the ref is completely. I mean he was using another player. He was yelling. And calling on you calling and throwing rackets yes that's that's different than taunting and other. If he was yelling and name calling throwing his racket at another player. I would say that's taunting art. What about are they. Yelling and arguing and calling names of the empire mean. There's some penalty the penalty object. Say guy hit a home run and he goes slowly on the basis just to get back and open up you. that's targeting. No yes it has taken tag around the basis. Look bad dot webs part of the game running slowly around the bay. Yes okay hard of the game so maze when madison bumgarner gave up the home run to. Max muncie yeah and monty was taken his time in bumgarner goes what the effort you looking at. And and munti said back to bumgarner. If you don't like it when you go out in the bay in pick it up right that you would penalize them under under the mason rule that's taunting. You didn't did you like that mace. I was okay. I don't think i don't know if that's taunting yes. Yes it is both and by the way baseball thrash. Yes baseball is again. I'm not against talking trash guy if you're in an offensive line or defensive line that's all you hear is trash. There's nothing talk. It's different when you stand over somebody. And you make the incomplete sign or you wag your finger or you do something that's potentially late. Nothing bigger guy is finger at you. May success incomplete that you think. That's that's yeah new the nfl in the nfl. That'd be fifteen years taunting. I completely agree with you. Play any sports growing up basketball. Domino's didn't taunt when i played basketball. It wasn't necessary. Didn't trash talk either. Wasn't on the floor fifty so we. Oh my good. Here's the terry in coin. Hey terry you're on seven ten years coins.

So how do you keep someone who's injured whether it's a two four week injury it's a several month injury or to an ACL. You're sitting out for nine months twelve months. Whatever may be how do you keep that person in the game. Mentally that's a hard thing to do and I think it's important as a coach as a trainer to make sure that you make sure those people still feel part of the team because they will not doc feel part of the team because they're in Rehab there with the or there with a physical therapist they're doing the Rehab and there are steps removed on that if you're grinding on the team and there's some drama uh or there's some other things going on. I think it's important that as a coach as an athlete all of us in this room are leaders at fitness quest hand. Would I'd say with forty two teammates. There's bound to be a few of my teams that have stuff going on outside of your personally whether the families themselves whatever may be as listen when you you show up and it's time to go you gotta go. You gotta find a way you gotTA. Snap Your van literally snappy ban you gotta get your mind right and you gotta go. Sometimes you do your best work when you're facing adversity. Sometimes when you're backed up against the wall you like you dig down and you start to get a little red. You get to get the little grind on that. You know that but that is because you're listening to podcasts podcast like this. That's because you you you dial in your best practice. I'm not going to submit to eating garbage all the time because I feel like garbage. That's hard that's disciplined. The Best of the best have the ability to go train when they don't feel like it if you're going through a tough time go out there and start doing delasin squat. I tell you the other day and you were killing it <hes> on that. That's how you continue to get your mind right and your teammates see you. They see you working on that if you're in high school if you're in college you're you're a weekend warrior. Remember this find people who you want to train with that are gonNA lift you up and you live them up. Five teammates find workout training mates that you can work out with who you're. GonNa get the best of the best out of you push. You're GonNa have fun on your smartphone. You have high fives and that's because all of a sudden all the endorphins get I call dose get little dose. Now does it but it does dopamine oxytocin oxytocin. Listen Serotonin and endorphins when you work out you get a dose on that. That's a hormonal chemical response that happens in your brain so when you say when I'm always get your mind right. Get your mind right. Get your mind. It is interesting as saying that you get your mind right. It's when you're physically yourself to be the best that you can. You're training hard. You're eating right. There's a chemical reaction that get your mind right so if someone is struggling struggling with depression anxiety stress all right. Let's go for a walk. Let's go out there and start with the buy low but you have to kill yourself and all of a sudden chemical start getting released and you start feeling better. That's why every day every single day and sixty five days a year. We're giving ourselves our own keynote every day on that so for the question. Julia I know it's a long winded answer answer on that is just gotta you gotTa keep the Grit you've got to keep the grind and and <hes> if someone a teammates going through adversity voice of encouragement lifting them up not pushing pushing down pull up never pushing down pulling up pull up up too many times especially the you know the young young kids. Even young teens are constantly pushing people down. How could you be the vehicle of change to help poor people. Yes good question good question. Chevy so I have a question more so about you and your success <hes> first of all. Do you realize how many people love you and I wouldn't necessarily want to say the word famous because sometimes famous people they get out of touch with just everyday people. I saw you at idea a couple of months ago and I was like Whoa oh like people were pushing to get inside the room and I was like wow like todd darkness somebody so to see that from me not knowing who you were and so my question to you is because your ICU so humble every day and then you get on that station you just like the whole room on fire. Do you realize that you have that first of all and while I'm talking to you and I just glass behind you and I see your Bible and that to me already is like it's amazing as A. I'm trying to get emotional. It's amazing as a I would say just the everyday person succumb in and see somebody who's so successful but then to see your foundation right behind you because I have worked with admirals. I have worked. I'm a retired Navy. Maybe veteran so I have been in office of some quote unquote bigwigs. I haven't seen Bible sitting out a Lotta Times tucked in a drawer somewhere but just while while I'm asking this question my eyes glaze over the first thing I see I just WanNa know. If you realize how much of impact you're making and how does it fills you in your heart. Oh that's a big one. When I slow down enough breath sometimes I do yes. I don't slow down enough. I think I love when I meet people that don't know me <hes> and they're like I've never seen you never met you. Don't know who you are. I love that I actually like that and and <hes> realize that my mission nation on earth is to simply motivate and inspire people to greatness. That's what makes me work. That's what makes me tick my divine bovine purpose. You talk about the by a man of faith. <hes> you say success but I say success is what you deem use it. I'm successful. I don't look at myself as successful. I don't strive for quote success. I strive for significance. My significance is based on on my divine purpose so what is God have in store for me and my living up being obedient to that. Would I realize if I'm listening to what he's telling me to do. As I make decisions should expand my business if he saying no and I listened and tap into that than the answer is no if he's saying yes I'm like. I don't know how I'm GonNa do that. I realized he will provide the answers for me to do that. So for me is I've always been in tune with that faith aspect and obviously there's times when I'm really good would end the time when I'm not spending my daily devotional time which I so wholeheartedly attempt to do every day on that so when I'm up on stage lights me up and I always ask an I'd ask you guys is find out what your gifts are know what lights you up and do more of it so I know that writing and speaking and presenting lights me up it fires my soul up when you find things that you're passionate about in the love love to do and you do more of it you discover that gift and when you discover that gift and that is your purpose at that becomes like men. This is why I love to do and that so so I'm always appreciative when I go to an idea or to a conference or to a keynote and people have heard the podcast so they've seen a youtube. I saw a youtube in two thousand to nine of them and I'm like well. That's a long time but there's also people they've never met me and to me it's all about human connection and helping people discover that purpose purpose of what they want in life and and how you become better most people want to become better and most people wanna do that the reason that Bible sitting there is because there's many times during during a work day. I just need it. Oh yeah I I don't need a lunch break I need. I need a little forever AK before big needing. You'll and you take a big podcast before for any. I'll pray and I'll just I'll ask guidance and wisdom and if I can slow it down enough to realize what's most important. It's not about what other people deem team me successful not successful because again successful is fleeting. There'll be a day when no one wants a pitcher with me or sign a book or whatever so I realize I I try. Try To revel in that so chevy. Thanks for the question which you got big. Mike questions a little more business related K. so one one of the most major things I noticed about fitness. Quest ten is how diverse clientele is you have old and young people who've never been in the gym before and people who show up every day high school athletes college athletes professional athletes so what <hes> my question is. What do you think are few aspects of either the staff or the community of fitness quest ten in general that allow for this to exist..

"The culinary nutritionist for the Rockies that means see in coordination with the training staff from the strength and conditioning coaches and probably import from the front office as well to provide the best possible diets for these Rockies players let's go back Tyler to where it started for you first of all on the food side and then we'll get the the sports connection so when did a an interest to a love in being around the the food service industry come about for you when I was younger probably ten or eleven years old I started cooking dinner for my mom myself at home my mom was a college professor you know she would teach late at night so I I enjoyed talking over when she when she got home and then you know that sparked a little bit of an interesting though we had a family friend that owned a sushi restaurant so I I was thirteen I went over and started washing dishes there and by fourteen I was rolling sushi on the on the line there and from there I never stopped working in restaurants I went to college Johnson wells in Providence Rhode Island from there took over restaurant I just outside of Newport Rhode Island when I was nineteen was the executive chef at the the restaurant over there while I was in college I receiving a bachelor's and I clinical dietetics and with with focuses in sports nutrition so you know I've seen pretty much every facet of a of the food industry I mean my favorite part after I graduated college was you know still running the restaurant and going down to the docks and you know picking out fresh fish in the morning and you know bring it over the restaurant not getting ready for the guys and then I had the opportunity to to go out and intern with the Broncos after that and so you know I I left a high position at the restaurant but I had always you know I played sports in high school and sports of always been something that I you know sparked my interest and I you know what the in the nutrition I figured it would probably tear well to trying to find something that you know I could take the nutrition and and the my background and and food and kind of the two it seemed you alluded to it in our first segment about probably the football world got into it a little sooner than baseball did and probably we go back and see track and field might even preceded football in that regard as you were studying nutrition bad Johnson and Wales and like you said trying to see how it would fit with sports was there much data was there much information or was this something that it was total exploration and Hey this might work that might work you know I think when I got into it they they had a probably a little bit firmer of a hold on it but probably ten ten years before I was really diving into it is when is when people are kind of starting to experiment with things the Gatorade sports science institute maybe it was a great resource and you know they look we have a lot of a they have the money to go out and and spend to you know do different research assignments on non athletes on high school athletes college athletes to you know see how certain foods you know certain carbohydrates proteins affect the body for a few example and recovery standpoint and as I mentioned earlier I mean you know feeling for us is it's huge but I think the the recovery being a coarse field here is is is the most powerful thing so let's go to the the internship the opportunity with the Broncos that really got to fully immersed in the sports nutrition marriage that happens now in professional sports what was that experience fly again in general terms spent and then kind of break down as you got into it what you're seeing in terms of what was needed for the players sure yeah you know when I started over there it was an interesting experience because I wasn't sure exactly what I was going to be doing I when I started I was I was only cooking for a bit for the players and then I developed a good relationship with with Brian Snyder the nutritionist and he brought me in on a some of the things that they do for the players you know from one on one console to the body fat percentages to I've seen where they want certain players to be ad based on their positions and you know that relates over to baseball where you know we we do have you know certain positions that yeah you know we need guys to be cleaner when you guys to you know have a certain body way to to push themselves or certain level but yeah over the Broncos you know I I started there like I said I was just cooking and then you know week we kind of got into other development of smoothies for certain guys you know high protein high calorie lower protein low calorie and you know it really just depended on the the position that the guys were in at that point no actually from there after getting no Brian pretty well he recommended that I went and applied to cook for the catering company that provided food for the avalanche after the games as well so I would work at the Broncos from run about six in the morning until probably three or four PM believe in ghosts are preparing the post game meal for the avalanche with Tony's catering I was handling at that point you know just trying to immerse myself in in sports as much as I can so how did the opportunity to do what you are doing with the Rockies come about you know Brian actually recommended that I that I get the rock is a call duty at actually reached out to greet because the I have a thought or trainer over India the Broncos over there and and said you know I have the perfect guy to go over and you know he can he can wear both hats so you can be there if you know the executive chef and a nutritionist over there and probably answer any questions of the player and players need as well as you know provide topline food for them and that's that's what my goal is everyday when I'm here so we'll do two things here from a calendar perspective first of all we'll look at kind of a long term and and say in November certainly by December the players are already starting to gear up for the next season when they are away from the facilities whether it's here or down in Scottsdale AZ Salt River fields is there a program that uses a laid out for them in conjunction with the other people eat that you're hoping they're going to get and stay on in preparation for spring training sure there yeah I'd say there is specific guys we do that for you know there are guys that are on their own programs and you know they're they're programs that work for years for them and they're you know there's nothing wrong with the program's around but there are other guys that you know we we push in a certain direction so we have a couple of different companies depending on where we are where they are in the country at that point that I do a lot of meal prep services for them so you know say if we want god to be consuming enough for two hundred calories with X. amount of protein for dinner every night then you know that male pro company will compare that seven days a week send it to his house and you know it's a it's all very calculated to that point so when they do come into spring training they're prepared and then you know we also have in Scottsdale we employ chefs probably about ten months out of the year so right when the season ends here you know there's probably about a month or so off but then the players have the opportunity to go work out with game and Mike Jasper some gets a system down there in the in the facility and you know we provide food for them as well so you know they they they opportunity about a month after the season ends to get right back down there get back to work and I they have everything they need from a operators and some point as well I know the the.

"Some of them, they can't prevent. But that's the key is to be careful into us. Good. Good dumb body dynamics and good. Her gonna mix. Oh. All right. Hey, thanks for the call. Geico. So yeah, Leka's, call is, is timely because, you know, we started talking about some people who beat up their bodies, prematurely. And the question always is, well, how do we stop them white? You know what, what do you think? But I think the best knowledge is at athlete analogy. You know, those guys tomorrow, you'll be playing the Super Bowl they've trained and Frank professional athlete or not even freshly athletes, high school athletes, college athletes, you know these folks and spend time you think about your, your job is your livelihood. And if you want to be able to keep doing it, you, you have to be able to take some time to protect to protect your engine. Yeah. Well, you know, hey, this is, this is a really good time for to emphasize another point that I bring up to my work is seen in, it's you know, we got Super Bowl is think about those athletes, we're using the analogy for these athletes. You know, look at Tom Brady. What does he is he forty now? I think he's forty. Yeah. So Tom, Tom Brady, look at this guy, he is just, you know, look at this, but in, you look at all these other athletes, anybody who's participated in sports what sports into you h games or something what does the team do what does every athlete do you know within an hour before the game? They get out and stretch. They get out. And they warm up they get into position so that when they get into that, I challenge that they have a better chance that they're not going to have a pulled tendon pulled muscle. So I know it sounds crazy. But when I get my patients that could be heavy labor, and we've gone through, I tell them, you know, get before you go to work if you don't want to do around your buddies, fine. But maybe before you get in your car, get down on the ground use some of the stretching that you were trained by with a physical therapist and the, you know that's your sporting event. That's their arena. If you're out there working, and just there's, there's no pride loss for you to be doing it, actually. It's, it's smart. You'll get down and stretch a little bit before you go out were, you know, for other people who are going to go out and exercise. And I think the other thing is people going to the gym, we have a lot of people going to the gym, but not everybody thinks that maybe I should try to stretch before I go to the gym. Yeah. I think the the what most people don't realize is that you can reduce the likelihood of Muslim tendon tears by forty percent just by warming up. So I think a lot of employers have started that in some places, actually, to have employer had the, the staff and the team actually warm up together in the morning. Yeah. That's that's interesting af if you're one of those people were your employer out there is, is having you warm up or encourage, you call us, let us know because I think that's very innovative and kudos to those employers who really are taking the time to care about their employees to do that five to one eight three eight hundred number.

"Prepare people before they get hurt. So can you talk a little bit for somebody who isn't injured. They say, you know, I know I need to do something. I'm not really sure I just want to join a general health and fitness facility. I'm not going to name any gyms because there's some that are very good. There's some that are fly by night. But again, you're often going to struggle to find out if the person that you are working with is credential does know what they're talking about. So somebody who is not injured how can sports performance and physical therapy with H and help them. Well, I mean, yeah. The weather's getting nicer, you know, that's that's that's great for everybody in the area, and people are becoming more active this time of year, and in a my advice to them is just start slowing easy. You know, don't dive headfirst into this. Listen to your body. Not everyone's going to come to a facility like our some people will find. Us, and they may be referred by a friend or a relative. And it's something they need some people don't need it, and they're very diligent, and they have some programming knowledge. And and they wanna get after it just be careful not to be your own worst enemy and listen to your body and kind of bite off small bite as opposed to big chunks of activity where you can't walk the next day or I can't wash my hair the next day. That's not what you want. It really comes down to find. If you're starting from zero foundational strength, making sure we're doing some core work, some simple things planks, Noah quit needed side. Planks get a set of ankle bands. And put them around your knees and start doing some clam shells and some different walks to work, your gluts, your cheeks to protect those hips, and then get a piece of resist of band or to being doing some pension polls and some retractions and star working the muscles in between your shoulder blades. Your quote, unquote, posture muscles in those three areas, Ben will really help build some foundation blocks. So if you want to start doing a walk. Or a walk jog program you would reduce the risk of injury significantly. If you were to start doing some activation slow level strength training. And I know I always ask strengthened sports performance people when I talked to them their thoughts on the timeframe to train for marathon. I know he's got the Pittsburgh marathon coming up and we're fortunate that they have a number of events you can do the half marathon. You can do the relay we all know that many people suddenly find out when the weather warms up that maybe they've neglected their training somebody's who's at this point. We're about five weeks five weeks from the Pittsburgh marathon. If they're just starting their training for the marathon any words of advice that you might give and I'm putting you on the spot with this question. Gritting at me. Right. Well, I'm signed up for the half. I'm about eight point five miles in right now. So I'm okay. Yeah. If you're just getting going with your your running, you know, it takes twelve sixteen weeks to really train properly to to make. You cross the finish line vertical. And that's that's the important part is if you're just starting now understand it probably won't be a PR for you a personal best or personal record half marathon, you can get away with probably if you're able to do four or five miles now you'll be able to get up to maybe ten ten mile long run before your half marathon a full marathon. You'd be struggling you will struggle. If you're just starting now. So you wanna get in your to three runs a week? You have your long run you have a mid distance and some type of speedwork if if you want, and then you're going to strength train, you should strength train one to two days a week. And then you have two days recovery that fills up your week. And yes, he pretty diligent about it isn't law. There's very little room for air. If you're starting now, but you're able you'd be able to get to sneak through a half and the full you may want to postpone it until the fall. And I know one of the things that people often think about it. And I'm sure you've heard this for people that you've not before as well. I'm gonna dump now I'm too old to be competitive or I'm too old to do things. And you think of a lot of these sports performance centres is being directed towards middle school athletes high school athletes college athletes, when they're home for spring break summer break Christmas break, and very rarely think of them as being used for adults who maybe a runners, maybe they're cyclists, maybe they're not professional but fairly. Competitive amateur. Golfers talk about what somebody who isn't involved with a high school sport how they can make use of sports performance physical therapy here at H without a doubt, some of our greatest clients and success stories are masters level, swimmers and master's level triathletes and dual athletes, I'm talking seventy five eighty year old clients people, which is so inspiring for us. But yeah, they are good at what they do running swimming biking. What have you playing players play players like the practice as Mr. Iversen Iverson said years ago practice, what's practice? You know, most kids don't adults. They don't dig the strength training part of it. But the adults ones you're referring to now they get it. They understand where this fits in their program. And it allows them to do what they love the do for longer because we are protecting their joints. We are on winding their body from the repetitive motion, whether it be biking or running or swimming. What have you playing? Tennis overuse of the shoulder. Yes. So we're just unwinding protecting the joints and getting them on basic level programs. That can help stabilize help reduce the risk of injury. And then of course, everyone wants to do what they do a little better. So we work on enhancing performance across the board. I know somebody who's in the field. If I have a question about something. I have a whole list of people that I can Email or text including you and you'll get back to me explain it. But you mentioned when you first started describing your new facility here. Some of the things you had an addition to what's in down and cool springs. And I was wondering if you could talk about a few of those things that people who are listing may not be familiar with the Krause, Ana you have I Bratislava have an anti gravity treadmill? And these are things that you you may hear thrown around or you may be watching a professional sports game say, oh, so and so came back from an injury, and they contribute their success to whatever it is. So maybe those three things if you could briefly describe what they are and the other cool bells and whistles that listeners. May not be aware of that. They may say, oh, that's something that could benefit beer. I know somebody who they may be looking for something like that. I thank you for asking this question because this is this is part of our marketing deal and a lot of people will not a lot one. They don't know we have these things these these luxury pieces of equipment. They're nice to have you know, we know our staff is very good with our hands and what we have in between our ears. We can get by without it. But it's very nice having some of these techy or advanced technology pieces of equipment because they work. You know, there's a lot. There's a lot out there been that that people come at us with we didn't bring on. But the the pieces we did they really have value, and they really add to our services so are anti gravity treadmill? It was actually a gravity treadmill? When it was designed by the NASA engineers years ago, when we had the space shuttle program it proved to be too big for the space shuttle. So it was. Mixed. They didn't go with the so the engineers as instead of just tossing it. They reversed the technology and instead of making you heavier on the treadmill. They made you light her on the treadmill and surrounded it with a pressurized tent made you lighter, and then they started marketing marketing to performance centers. Physical therapy centers to use for post operative anything from the waist down low back knees hips ankles feet, where we can get the the client patient customer up and get them ambulation without pain. We can take gosh up to fifty or sixty percent off of somebody to get them. Doing those things without pain starting to rework biomechanical analysis movement. And getting them back to full strength quicker. We also work with with our healthy clients are runners we were just talking about distance runners get him on the anti gravity. They come in for a mid week run. They did say fifteen over the weekend. They wanna get five or six, and we can take ten or twenty percent off of that person and have them go through their their run at lesser pounding on the hips and knees, so there's a lot of benefits that anti gravity treadmill? Another pieces are cryotherapy unit. Most athletes, I know have gone through a cold tub at one point or another to really fresh up dead legs heavy legs and cold water immersion. You're looking at forty five to fifty degrees, the water ten or twelve minute process mostly from the waist down. When I was with the pirates, we had some some clowns. I would go in from the neck down to get the total body the cry. Oh, instead of using cold water uses nitrogen gas in it is a chamber where that has your body encapsulated. From the neck down. And we talked about the forty five degrees with the water. This is about negative one sixty Fahrenheit at level one. So it's extremely colder. But it does not penetrate the soft tissue as deep as cold water does. So we're able to stay in there. It's a three minute process. But then the the nitrogen does penetrate subcutaneous so it does signal to the brain that it's an extremely cold environment. All the blood rushes to the core to protect our Oregon's kind of a scary scary thought, and then you get a a larger significantly larger release of endorphins and hormones that knocked down inflammation. And that's how that Kreil works. We have great success with arthritic patients and clients it helps to manage their inflammation now reverse arthritis by any means, but it does help them live a little higher quality of life from week to week. And then we have a great deal of success with our athletes and our high performers after practices after games during those times. Preseason or during the season where they're just kind of dragon in their legs fuel heavy it can really help rejuvenate them and have them bounce back faster. So those are two pieces that we have. And I know that's for people who are listening going. Well, why can't I buy a treadmill or one of these devices for home these are relatively pricey investments? I know that there are some elite distance runners who actually own one of those treadmills, and they may do fifty to sixty percent of their mileage on it because it allows them to do well over one hundred miles without the pounding. But generally, you have to go to a facility that offers these, and I think to touch on the fact just my own personal opinion. If you're going to go to a facility that has one of these is probably good idea to have one that is a medical related facility versus a wellness because you're going to have all the responsibilities at a medical facility is going to say, hey, we need to consider this reliability that reliability we're gonna make sure it's maintain on a regular basis as opposed to getting into the sauna and all of a sudden realizing that. Oops. It gets a little colder than it was supposed to. That's right. They are they with the high performance comes higher liability. And we're we take very serious the people we put in there and our policies and procedures of us legalizing Queant to your point. They they are not like buying a set of dumbbells. But there again, it has its place. Not everyone goes in it. And you know, we're very fortunate to have these pieces I really like to thank h Dr Patrick Email for all the support. They give us to really allow us to get the things we need to do our job better. We're talking with Frank philosophies. He is director of sports performance for Allegheny health network. They have facilities and cool springs. They have facilities now up in Wexford. We'll make sure we have in the show notes some links to Frank has given us a movement tips and lifestyle hacks in the back in the past. And we're probably going to convince him in a few minutes to the same Frank. I want to thank you once again for talking about what you do and explaining the importance of people who wanna live active lifestyle of knowing where to go when problems arise or they want to take that activity to a higher level. Thanks has been a pleasure. And this is truly our passion. And

"Know about a potential or possible concerns with kids, specializing just one sport all year round. And Dr do those I thought said very eloquently the fact is that when you're looking at kids or ten or twelve or fourteen years old? They we sort of assume they're just like miniature adults. But of course, they're not because their bodies are going through all sorts of changes and development and growth plates, and they're not twenty-five. They're just kids starting out, and in many cases, Prieto lessons, and as we all know, a lot of things changed when it go through teenage years, and you know, it's a delicate kind of balances days is a mentioned repetitive. Use injury is a term that is something that's new didn't exist twenty years ago. But certainly it it exists today. And we're taking calls at one eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six and let's start our conversation. Let's go to. Let's go to Mike out east Rockaway, Mike. Good morning. You're on the fan. Dr happy new year happy new year. Rick as you know, you turned it every Sunday for fifteen years going on sixteen. A very interesting topic with points that you made surgery is not speed up recovery process. Kids will play certain sports when I was coaching back in the day. I would tell the kids on the baseball diamond muscle memory muscle, memory and try to do this. And that it's psychological effect on children. When an injury happens a physical effect on the ball. So that they can't play. And you know, what I think the whole idea is like, for example, football son, just turned twenty four. He graduated two years ago. He was a wide receiver in college. And I'm not a big fan of kids playing football at an early age or certain other sports hockey, you know, you talking about you get to the subject of Tommy John surgery, so many kids and you see high school athletes college in a pros. Arms trouble because they're over using. And I'll tell you what you've touched on. This really interesting you've got four kids. So, you know, I'll leave you with this.

Some parents had never really competed in sports don't have an idea of watching involved with the dedication and everything else that goes along with it, and they get to some get to a point of really driving their kids to to continue. That's a good point. Then as always thank you for your continued support. Doctor that is a good point. You know, we serve presumed that a lot of the parents have an understanding of sports injury concerns because perhaps they played sports says as kids themselves, but if they or their kid is playing a sport that they aren't familiar with. They didn't play as a kid growing up that that can lead to complications as well. Churn. No doubt about it. You know, plenty of surveys show that the parents are the greatest influence on introducing an athlete to a particular sport. And and and then, you know, and and and in terms of specializing there or developing, you know, the intensive activity. It's more the coaches and others. But, you know, the parents are he can't for parents, obviously as a parent I can empathize with them. But they also, and I'm sure if if if a parent is being honest, and their stand also that they feel pressure because they've they made a commitment as well. It's not just the child's going to practice. It's the parent who's taken the child to practice. It's the parents who have invested certain monies into these sort of sports, and it's a very complicated thing. I mean when they come into the office, there's. There's a lot of things we have to take into account not just the actual physical malady. But you know, the child's personality the parents personality, and then how to relate things to them. So that they can understand that, you know, if we want to get things better, we gotta do x y and z it's it's very challenging. Let me ask you a delicate question as you had kids come to your office, obviously with the mom or dad who was accompanying them and the kid has complaining of an injury. But you get the sense the instinct of sense that perhaps this kid is using the injury is sort of a masking element to say effect. I'm really don't wanna do the sport anymore. But don't know how to tell mom and dad, I want to quit. Yeah. I mean, I think we do we they're definitely some of the high school kids that that I'll cover when I go to the games or or in the training room or or even in the office. When when I see some of these children who. Come in repetitively with new so I wouldn't say vague complaints. But aches and aches and pains here, and there it's not a discrete trauma like an ACL where you can point to something. It's more. Oh, you know, this hurts now that hurts. You know to me it's either over training, or they're manifesting the sort of desire to sort of say, I'm not really into this anymore. But they wanna stated explicitly. We don't all the time. I don't want people to get that sense. But I think every once in a while, I do get the opinion. I get the sense that they're probably trying to relate that. But can't articulate it for a variety of reasons. And how do you handle that with the if you get the sense that as you say it's a vague or nondescript injury, and you get a sense this kid doesn't really want to keep playing the sport. Do you talk to the parent of this or how I mean, I do try to introduce a dialogue with all of us where we sort of try to understand. Why is he or she continuing to develop these? Repetitive injuries. Yeah. Is it because they're not allowing enough recovery. So if it's the kid that's on to travel teams. Maybe they need to cut back is it because they just they're just playing super aggressively is it because the mechanics off. We all know the kid who tries really hard to be a pitcher. But you could see his pitching mechanics are just not that great or is it because they've lost interest. And sometimes I'll even try and delicately bring it up and say, look, are you still into this or you into other sports? Do you have other things you wanna do like hang out with your friends rather than spend every weekend traveling across the northeast? So it's tough. It's tough. I know I'm sure it's very very difficult. And of course, put you in a very awkward position. Let's go back to our callers. It's gonna to north massapequa. Frank is standing by Franken morning, you're on the fan. You guys get Frank. Thank you for coming in early Sunday. I some. Early. So it's nice to hear somebody who actually knows what you guys are talking about talking. Europe. You're on point that I appreciate it. But I have a couple of hours. Pretty good question. What I've seen and I'm in my forties, and is coached him. I played sports. What I've seen is kids are not playing. I just said I don't want what I've been hearing from a lot of my friends and a lot of people. I see that that they just are never had pets all day. And then when it's time to place to go to whatever it is. That's when the first time they pick up a bat or basketball, whatever it is. And then I find them getting hurt that win. I don't agree with you with the specialized over the free plays. What is causing injuries? Do you have any suggestions on like, maybe is it? Sketches or is it different type of different things. They can do to prevent these type benches and maybe make a little bit less. This is. Good suggest because Google specialized this way or the other. They must've strung around there. I there's no doubt. A, you know, a smart strength and conditioning program is very useful. Even in the younger athletes, and I don't mean that they go out there and start lifting weights like Arnold Schwarzenegger, but bodyweight type exercises Playa metric training, even even in younger athletes has been proven to be beneficial to them, and unlike the the stories we used to hear when we were kids where if you started lifting weights or or doing weight training early on you're not gonna stunt your growth plates. There's no evidence that occurs. So I think that a generalized conditioning and strengthening program even in the off season can be beneficial. And like you say getting the kids away from just the screen and doing things like that. I think can be helpful to prevent injuries. But it's also about being smart about things just referring to weightlifting and bodybuilding twenty thirty years ago. They realized if you're going to be a competitive strength or weight trainer. You're gonna have to period at the you know, they call the pure period does Asian where you can't always be at one hundred percent intensity. So I think doing things low level things maybe throughout the year, and then higher level, obviously at certain points and taking the appropriate rest, and allowing for the pro appropriate recuperation is obviously critical. The hard thing though is determining what exactly is that. Especially in the context of multiple sports, and so many things going on in a kid's life. There's just no simple answer. Unfortunately, I just wanted to echo that too. Dr. You know, as you said some time ago, you know, the idea of a young kids lifting weights was considered an absolute, no. But obviously over the years that position has changed so long as the youngster we're talking about kids as young as eight ten twelve years old has to be totally supervised has be fairly lightweight. And so they don't get in the way of their the growth plates and so on so forth. You know, and and you know, they the mentioned metrics which has been around for a while. And yet not many parents seem to understand the the the the the upside of Playa metric training for their kids. If they really want to get a kid to develop a sense of coordination and skill and ability plan that Trix is great in it. It's really sort of low impact training. Yeah. And the truth is also when kids develop better coordination and better landing mechanics, especially younger girls who play things like. Soccer basketball. They can also decrease their risk of ACL injury by about fifty percents with the appropriate training programs. So not only is it good for their own physical prowess. But it's also good to prevent injury. And as someone who themself? Had an ACL injury. I can tell you when I was fifteen I had an ACL injury. And that's why I I sort of really empathize with people who have these types of changes you. So the data clearly shows that ACL surgery works great. But even when we clear athletes are adults after ACL surgery. Not everyone wants to go back to sports or the sport that where they were injured or skiing, or whatever it was because of the fear factor. Yes. So an ulcer prevention is worth more than a pound of cure in this instance. And so you mentioned the Playa metrics I completely. Yeah. I mean, I totally agree. If we, you know body weight type exercises in the preadolescent pushups situps coordination type things. And then obviously learning how to how to jump and land. And and all these things that we take for granted. But if you're only playing one particular sport, if you're only playing hockey, then you don't learn some of those things or if you're only a rower, then you have no lateral type movements to really train your body way thing if you ask them to do lateral type movement someone who's only rowing for years. You'll see that even though they look like a tremendous athlete. They're they're not as coordinated as you might expect him to be. Yeah. The we talked about this. You know, the transition of skills one sport to the other is so essential..
"high school athlete college" Discussed on ILOVETOWATCHYOUPLAY.COM
"Spring and it was it was mainly just a like a call had been made in the other teams favor earlier in the game and then the exact same scenario happened with with one of our players and he called it the opposite way and so my message to him was listen. Let's just be consistent with what we're doing here and so it wasn't it wasn't that i was yelling. Adam or or anything like that but i was having a good conversation with him but then i started telling myself on the back of my mind like this is. This is the second grade side football game. It's really a big of a deal but but you know it's out of principle you know. Hey let's be consistent here. let's call it. Call it even both ways. that's fine. i had my husband at one point. Kinda pull off of a aref in basketball. When i went up and kind of chest bumped him because i was frustrated with a call me. He was like an eighteen year old kid trying to ramp at. I was like screaming at him. Chess bubby down. Though it's it's it's hard when the competitive juices flowing see you guys have four children. Who knows what they're sports futures will ultimately hold that. How do you and your wife brittany approach. Just their sports careers. I know a lot of. Nfl players will kind of have a strategy or a plan in terms of. They don't want him to play tackle until a certain age or they are going to insist that they play multiple sports not specialize or they want to push them in a different direction than the sport that they played so they don't have to follow in their father's footsteps. Have you guys discuss that. Do you have any type of plan for how you wanna parent them when it comes to sports. Yeah it's We do have a plan but but it is. But i think it is. We argue. I think face challenges that maybe we don't even realize and just just based on the fact that i their dad is a professional football. You know so overtime. I understand that there will probably be pressure for all of them to follow and dad's footsteps somehow and i think my message to them as they grow up and i'm just being over the top with it. Brittany nine is to tell them. You don't have you don't have to play sports. You don't have to play sports to make dad or mom happy. We love sports. Sports have have molded us. And certainly it's what that does for a living so that owes a great deal to football into having played sports as a kid. So we want you to play it because we think it's a great experience but at the end of the day. You don't have to play sports if you don't want to an end as far as what sports to play. I just want them. I'm gonna expose them to every sport that i possibly can expose them to it. And then see which direction they gravitate. And say this about kids specializing in sports. I think it's the worst thing. Kids can do the absolute worst thing. I think that kids should play as many sports for as long as they possibly can. And i'll tell you why because listen at some point. High school or beyond. Yes you do have to narrow it down just from the standpoint of the time commitment you know if you're playing football for in on high school team that's all you can do during the fall really is play football and then in the winter playing basketball. That's all you can do. And if you're in the spring and you're playing baseball well yeah. Maybe you can run track to. But then those are those are full-time them when she gets the high school level but prior to that. I think that there's a season for every sport and in many cases their seasons for multiple sports in the fall you could play two or three sports same with winter same with spring. I think that i credit so many other sports for my ability to play the game of football at a high level and to to play in the nfl for example. I love playing tennis. When i was a kid. Both my carrots play tennis so that was something that we would do on the weekends together. Well tennis helped helped. Help me with my work. Because you have to be in a great athletic position to make a move on the ball and put yourself in a position to hit the ball. And i feel like sliding and moving in the pocket and then being ready to throw the football. I gained a lot of those traits and mechanics from playing tennis as a youngster. Also i love baseball all the way up through high school and in fact i thought baseball was going to be the direction i would go. That was my aspiration as a kid. I wanted to be ted williams. It's why we're the number nine. I wanted to go to college. Play baseball and play in the major leagues. Played baseball well. Tennis you're required. Hit forehand and backhand so you have to have great hand eye coordination and power from both sides. If you're going to be a complete player. Well i could switch it and baseball. And i never really knew why i was naturally a lefty turn around and hit. Righty just fine. Well in tennis you're hitting both sides and have to have hand eye coordination both sides so that helped me be a better baseball player. Because now i could switch it right so that and then other sports soccer soccer with your footwork is great. The way it carries over to a lot of other sports i with many receivers who said soccer was the best thing they did as a kid because it helped it helped develop their footwork that they now use as a receiver as a db in the nfl. In fact odell beckham. Junior was a great youth soccer player and i know he credits soccer for a lot of his his his abilities so again. I think that there's no matter what you end up. I mean at some point. You do specialize. But i think it's high school and beyond once you once and i'm sure that if you went to every high school athlete college athletes pro athletes and ask them to kind of break down who they are as an athlete and where those traits came from. I guarantee you every one of them would look to other sports and say because i play this sport it was. It helped me develop in this way. That has now helped me do what i do for a living. So that's i think that's that's like his need to play as many sports for as long as they possibly can to develop all of those traits. Here's the thing though. And i wonder if you guys have gotten to this point with your oldest yet. You probably haven't you get to a point pretty quickly as we have. I think right about the age of nine or ten where all the sudden the the club. Sports have kind of taken over and same with baseball. The travel teams have kind of taken over. So now you're asked i. Was your son gonna join the travel team. Are you gonna take part in this. And if you don't and you wanna stay season on you don't wanna be on the year round team. All the sudden your son or daughter is kind of at a disadvantage because now their talent level. Maybe isn't the same because they haven't been playing year round and then i'm not sure that you can get back to being good enough at that point to play in high school and i think that's where a lot of parents find themselves kind of panicked right now in that. They're worried that their kids not going to have the opportunity to play in high school because they don't do the year round sports so it feels like for a lot of us. It's kind of a catch twenty two now. Yeah you know listen i. I think that. I think that that pressure comes from the the coaches and recruiters sir in recruited in you know in eighth grade. Yeah those are. All kids get burnt out very quickly. You know so so. I just think overall if you're looking at it in the long term and just what what multiple sports can help a child develop in regards to movement patterns and muscle memory and that kind of thing through there. Let's call it their elementary school years from from first through sixth grade. I think playing as many sports as they possibly can is the way to go and then as they get into middle school. I think there's probably a little bit of specialization. Just because as you get older the time commitment for each of these sports increases you know becomes issue it becomes more competitive and now you're part of the school team and you've got a you know lengthy schedule and all those things but at the end of the day you you'll become such a better player at your respective sport if you play multiple sports i've just seen too. I've seen too many kids. Burn out. And i've talked to many people that are. Phd's that have done the studies that can sit there and validate everything. I'm saying about kids. Who specialize too soon are the ones who get burnt out. And they don't they don't have the other the exposure to the other sports to help them continue to develop their skills that as they move beyond kind of a certain maturity point. If that makes sense you know the theory. Bill that go back and draw from.
