The Core Training Collective

Mon, 03/18/2019 - 08:40

I’ve been coaching for close to 20 years now (I’m officially in my 19th year), and one thing I’ve learned over the years is that trainers and coaches love learning stuff they can use and apply immediately.

If you go to a workshop, it’s called “Monday Morning” value.

Sure they want to learn theory and philosophy – stuff that will reshape how they train and coach for a lifetime.

But if you can learn something useful that you can immediately apply? All the better!

Now when it comes to core training, I’ve written more than a few articles (and shot more than a few videos) along the way.

In fact I’d imagine if you counted up all the coaching videos I’ve recorded, plus all the core training articles I’ve written, and maybe even throw in the Complete Core Training product I developed, there would literally be hundreds of pieces of core training content from yours truly.

But here’s the thing – my approach is always evolving.

At the end of the day, you need to find a blend of choosing the right exercises and coaching them the right way to get the most bang for your core training buck.

So in this article, we’re going to cover a ton of ground – but most importantly, we’re going to focus on those little wins you can start using right now, today, to take your core training game to the next level.

Let’s do this!

The Dead Bug

The dead bug has been a staple in my core training programs for years.

Not only are their tons of progressions and regressions involved, but it’s one of the easiest exercises I know to get a client or athlete to “feel” their abs.

In this video, I break down not only how to do the exercise, but give you a ton of variations to play around with as well.

The Bear Progression

Over the years, many people that I’ve worked with have complained that “planks are too easy.”

Now let’s be real here – once I coach them up on the correct way to do a plank, they quick change their tune…

Crush Your Hamstrings and Glutes with the ValSlide Leg Curl

Wed, 03/13/2019 - 05:00

I don’t know about you, but the older I get, the more I’m looking to get maximum bang for my buck when in the gym.

And suffice it to say, the days of body part splits and hitting a single muscle-group during a training session are long gone!

So if I’m going to do a more “isolative” hamstring exercise, I’m going to find a way to integrate as many muscle groups as possible.

Now you might have seen a ValSlide leg curl performed at some point in the past, but I think I’ve got some subtle cues and tweaks here than can really crank up the intensity.

Let’s discuss….

Now that you’ve watched the video, here are a few key things to focus on:

  • Cue the exhale and set position of the rib cage and pelvis first.
  • Once in position, work to keep the belt buckle up and pelvis tipped back throughout.
  • Lower slowly and under control! Initially, it may help to only do the lowering/eccentric portion, put the hips down, and then reset at the top/starting position.

The big focus here isn’t just on the moving of the slides, but perhaps more importantly, on controlling the hips and pelvis.

Give this a shot the next time you’re in the gym – I guarantee you’re going to feel it the next day!

All the best,
MR

P.S. – If you’re interested in taking your coaching of the lower body lifts to the next level, be sure to check out my Coaching the Lower Body Lifts workshop which is coming up in May!

7 Mantras I Use To Be Successful in Coaching and Life

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 07:56

“Mantra” may be one of those words that give you a funny feeling when you hear it.

In fact, I’d imagine that a lot of people who even see the title of this podcast won’t listen to it, just because the word “mantra” is in the title!

But in reality, mantras are a powerful tool that many of the world’s most successful people use on a daily basis to get more out of their life.

In this show, I cover not only what a mantra is, but why you should use it, and then give you seven mantras that I use on a daily basis to help keep me grounded, focused, and growing.

 

Show Outline

Here’s a brief overview of what I discussed in this week’s show;

  • MR’s Monologue: What Beginner’s Mind is, and why you should cultivate it
  • What a mantra is? And while it may sound hokey, why you should be using them
  • The 3 layers of habits – and why “setting goals” may not be enough
  • Achieving vs. becoming
  • Why my first three mantras are all about taking care of myself (and maybe yours should be as well???)
  • Training, nutrition and sleep: 3 non-negotiables for trainers and coaches
  • Where my family fits in the mix, and the mythical unicorn this is “finding balance”
  • Homework: Creating your own mantras based on what YOU want to achieve in your life and the person you want to become

The Ultimate Dead Bug Video

Wed, 03/06/2019 - 05:00

If you love core training exercises, this is your video!

The dead bug is one of, if not my favorite, core training exercise of all time.

It’s easy to use, and can be done with little (or no) equipment.

You can progress it from simple and easy, to extremely hard and challenging.

And in this short video, I detail not only how to do the dead bug correctly, but give you a ton of progressions and variations you can use toe really supercharge this awesome exercise.

Once you check out the video, here are a few notes to get the most out of your dead bugs:

  • Bang out a full exhale and work to get your back flat to the floor.
  • Focus on getting the leg straight – even if that means not taking it as close to the floor.
  • As you’re going through the motion, do NOT let the back arch or extend.

Next time you’re in the gym, go through this little progression and let me know what you think!

All the best,
MR

Ryan Patrick on Blending Movement and Training Savagery

Fri, 03/01/2019 - 04:23

Ryan Patrick is owner of Peak Fitness & Sports Training (aka PeakFAST) in Erlanger, Kentucky, which he opened 9 years ago. Ryan recently finished his Masters of Science from Colorado State University, and is a competitive powerlifting in the 90 kg division.

Ryan’s a guy I’ve known for close to a decade, and someone I have a ton of respect for. He’s just a hard working, genuine, salt of the Earth kind of guy.

In this show, Ryan and I discuss his overarching training philosophy – including how he blends movement quality with training savagery, why giving clients ownership is key to his success with everything from busy dads to young athletes, and how he’s using 90-day targets to spur success with his clients.

 

Give them what they want, in the context of what they need. – Ryan Patrick

 

Show Notes

Here’s a brief overview of what we covered in this week’s show:

  • MR’s Monologue:
  • How Ryan got started in the world of physical preparation.
  • The time he was living on his mom’s couch, but she was also his first paying client at his gym!
  • Ryan’s overarching thought process and philosophy when working with clients.
  • How he blends improving movement quality, while still letting people train like savages.
  • How he goes about laying out a program for a gen pop client vs. a young athlete.
  • The blind spots he’s found over the years when training gen pop clients, and what you can do to address them.
  • Ryan thoughts on how to better streamline and organize your life (this is coming from a guy with two businesses in the household, a wife, and 5 kids!)
  • The BIG Question
  • Our always popular lightning round where we talk professional success, favorite books, Ryan’s current training goals, and what’s next for him in life.

How to Dial in Your Half-Kneeling Exercises

Wed, 02/20/2019 - 05:00

What if I told you one exercise variation could help you:

  • Loosen up your hip flexors,
  • Strengthen your core, and
  • Improve your stability and control in split-stance and single-leg exercises?

Well guess what – half-kneeling can help you do all of those things!

In this short video, I detail exactly how I coach half-kneeling exercises, and give you a handful of exercise variations that you can take to the gym and start experimenting with TODAY!

Once you review the video, here are a few big takeaways that I think you’ll want to jot down:

  • Getting the toes underneath you on the back leg (if possible) really cranks up the stretch in the hip flexors.
  • Work to get the ribcage and pelvis stacked on top of each other.
  • Whenever possible, do your best to keep the knee/hip/shoulder of the “down” leg in line. This may not be possible at first, but should improve over time.

I hope the video helps, and have a great day!

Best,
MR

Why Your Ankle Mobility Drills Aren’t Working

Wed, 02/13/2019 - 05:00

I can’t tell you how may times I’ve had clients or athletes come to me and say they have “stiff ankles.”

Many have been doing ankle mobility drills for months (if not YEARS) on end, and getting little to no results.

So what gives?

Here’s something to consider…

…what if your “ankle mobility” problem isn’t an isolated ankle issue at all?

What if the issue is much more global in nature, and therefore needs a big picture fix?

In this video, I’m going to detail a strategy that I’ve used with great success to loosen up a set of stiff ankles.

Let’s do this!

If you want a comprehensive program that addresses ankle mobility issues, here’s what I’d be thinking about:

  • Breathing exercises that drive air into the upper and lower back,
  • Lower body exercises that place the weight in front of the body,
  • Leg lowering drills, and maybe
  • Some isolated ankle mobility exercises.

I sincerely hope this helps you unlock those stiff ankles once and for all!

All the best,
MR

Why You Should STOP Belly Breathing

Tue, 02/05/2019 - 19:00

I don’t know about you, but I’ve made a ton of mistakes over the years.

One of the big mistakes when I first started coaching breathing exercises was cuing everyone to “take a big, deep breath into their belly.”

While the intention is good, I think more times than not, you don’t get what you want to out of the movement.

But you want to know the worst part?

If you exaggerate it, you can put the body in a worse position than when you started!

So in today’s video, we’re going to discuss why you should STOP belly breathing, and what to do instead.

A few things to note:

  • Setting a position of exhalation first is key. Don’t take a big inhale on top of a bad starting position!
  • Take a normal breath of air in. Trying to take in a ton of air is normal if you’ve just done an aerobic power test, but not appropriately when you’re trying to improve breathing mechanics.
  • Last but not least, intact abs are crucial! If the abs are in the right position and engaged, it’s easy to drive air throughout the upper back, lower back, and even the chest walls. If not, air is going to follow the path of least resistance – which often means pushing the abs out, and putting the body in a poor position.

I hope you enjoy the video, and have a great day!

All the best,
MR

6 Random Thoughts on Programming For and Coaching Young Athletes

Sun, 02/03/2019 - 19:22

Over the past couple of years, it seems like our training is all over the place when it comes to training our young athletes.

The spectrum ranges from training kids like elite athletes, to treating them like Bubble Boy, and everything in between.

So whether you’re a parent, a coach, or maybe a little bit of both, here are six thoughts on training young athletes!

#1 – We’re Not Training Fragile Flowers…

Every time my son, Kade, comes into IFAST, this is the first thing he does:

View this post on Instagram

Working on those altitude landings… #plyometrics #gainz

A post shared by Mike Robertson (@robtrainsystems) on Jan 5, 2019 at 8:16am PST

(Now while I know there are parents out there that assume I’m some negligent asshole, I can assure you there’s nothing I care more about than the health and well being of my family.)

Here’s the thing my people – kids aren’t fragile flowers.

In fact, they are incredibly robust – often more so than we adults are from a physical perspective.

So why does our training essentially put them in bubble wrap?

The goal of a smart training program is to expose the body to an appropriate (and progressively increasing) amount of stress.

Let’s take Little Johnny, a 14-year-old athlete who has just gone into the 9th grade.

On one hand, it doesn’t mean that just because he’s 14 that he’s crossed some magical threshold and is now ready to “max out” on Day 1 of weights class.

But on the other hand, if you’ve trained like Johnny for six months and he’s still doing a suspension-trainer supported or plate squat to “improve his technique,” you’re doing that child a disservice.

Keep the training environment safe, but find ways to challenge every young athlete you train.

#2 – …But We’re Not Building Powerlifters, Either

One of the biggest issues with our industry is that it’s very hard to determine if a coach is doing a good job.

And unfortunately, one of the easiest (and only) ways to “measure” if an athlete is improving is by showing that an athlete got stronger in the weight room.

“Look! Johnny put 50 pounds on his squat max this off-season – I’m doing a great job as his coach!”

Now look – I’m definitely not going to be the person that tells you getting stronger is a problem.

In fact, a ton of young athletes would benefit from a basic strength program that builds them in a safe and progressive manner.

But there are two issues that I see here time and again:

  1. Just because powerlifters measure and base strength off of a back squat, a barbell bench press, and a deadlift, doesn’t mean our young athletes should do the same, and
  2. Getting stronger helps up to a certain point…until it doesn’t.

As for #1, I’ve written about this in the past. If you want to build what I would call more “athletic strength,” then definitely read this article: My Top 5 Moves for Athletic Strength.

Now with regards to strength training, here’s how I tend to look at things.

Most sports are played in situations where you can utilize the stretch-shortening cycle, and perform a movement in a somewhat fluid and coordinated state.

And while lifting doesn’t translate perfectly to sport, I think looking at the coordinative aspect of lifting in the gym should be accounted for.

For example if someone is squatting and everything looks crisp and clean, that should be encouraged. I would imagine this will also have some degree of carryover and transfer as well (although how much is something I’ll let the internet experts debate).

However, the second things move from crisp and clean to dirty and grinding, I think it’s safe to say we’ve moved from the realm of “lifting to improve performance,” into the realm of “lifting for lifting’s sake.”

I don’t know about you, but I only have two goals for my athletes:

  1. To keep them healthy and on the field, court or pitch, and
  2. To improve their speed, strength and power in their given sport.

By making the two points above the focus on your program, it gets infinitely easier to stop worrying so much about weight, and instead, focus on things that probably matter most.

#3 – Don’t Get Too Complex too Soon

Another way we, as coaches, try to measure our self-worth is by showing how much we know.

For instance, let’s say we’ve evolved beyond measurements like squat and bench press maxes to show how smart we are, so instead we feel compelled to do it via fancy (and far too advanced) training techniques!

Case and point: I’m a huge fan of Cal Dietz.

I think the guy is a genius, and he makes stuff that is truly complex sound very simple and easy.

However, if you’re using French contrast training with a 13-year-old athlete that has been lifting for exactly two weeks, well, you’re kind of missing the boat!

My guy Joe Kenn has a beautiful concept that he uses with his young athletes called Block Zero.

In Block Zero the goal is to build all of the basic movement patterns – squatting/hinging/lunging/pressing/etc. – and master them.Then, once technique has been dialed in and refined, you can progress to variations that are more complex, or that allow you to increase load.

Remember, the goal here isn’t to see how fast we can get a young athlete from A to B, but instead, to give them the tools they need to be successful both now and in the future.

#4 – Use Deceleration to Build Eccentric (and Contextual!) Strength

Outside of Bill Hartman, Lee Taft may be the guy that has had the biggest impact on me as a performance coach.

One thing Lee always used to say was that it’s not so much about deceleration, but re-acceleration, that’s truly critical in sport.

And while I loved the statement, for some reason it made me feel like deceleration wasn’t that important – when I still felt like it was.

So when Lee made this statement in his Speed Insiders course, it really stood out to me:

Deceleration training is really eccentric strength training.

Now THAT, my friends, is a really lucid point.

And I’ll take it a step further – the great thing about deceleration training is that it’s eccentric strength training in positions that are contextual to sport and movement!

Now look – I’m all for playing around with tempos and such in the gym, but we need to realize that everything we do in the gym is general.

Squatting, deadlifting, bench pressing, chin-ups, pull-ups, lunging – all great stuff.

But all general in nature.

If you train and coach young athletes, find ways to incorporate more deceleration training into that of your athletes, especially early-on in their career.

I guarantee it will make a big impact!

#5 – Find Ways to Make it Fun

I’m not sure if you had kids (or how long it’s been since you’ve been a kid), but coaching at virtually every level of sport has taught me one thing:

Being a young athlete isn’t easy.

Our kiddos today are constantly being bombarded by expectations, whether it’s from their peers, their coaches, or worse yet, their parents.

Luckily for me, I was an average athlete growing up and never had any massive expectations placed on me, so for the most part, sports were always fun for me.

An outlet.

I think it should be our goal as coaches to make training with us fun and engaging for the athletes.

Smile and high five them when they walk in.

Find ways to make the training environment fun and competitive.

And when appropriate, be self depreciating and make fun of yourself (this one is easy for me!)

Now keep in mind – I’m not telling you to be soft, or not push them. That’s not the goal whatsoever.

But I think if you can find that mix of fun and engaging yet challenging, you’ll find that your athletes really respond, and tend to get more out of every training session.

#6 – Be a Real, Caring Person

This last one should be common sense, but as we know today, common sense is everything but common in this day and age!

At the end of the day, coaching isn’t about the X’s and O’s of program design or exercise technique.

Sure, those things absolutely help – but if you’re a total asshole the entire training session and your athletes hate you, I’d venture to say you’re probably not going to get the results you’re looking for.

Now this stuff isn’t rocket science, but let’s start with a short list of things you can do:

  • Smile and greet your athletes by name,
  • Give them a high five, fist bump, dap or hug (whichever is appropriate),
  • Ask them how their day went,
  • When they answer, genuinely listen (and care about what they’re saying!),
  • Coach them like they’re your kid,
  • Take care of them like they’re your kid, and most importantly
  • LOVE THEM LIKE THEY’RE YOUR KID!

In other words, be a coach.

Be a role model – someone they can look up to.

If you can find a way to bring your A game every single day and follow that list to a “T,” you’ll never have issues with buy-in,

Summary

So that’s my piece for today – 6 simple thoughts on coaching and training your young athletes.

But those are just my thoughts, and I’m just one guy.

What are your thoughts?

What would you add to the list?

I’d love to hear from you, so please leave a comment in the section below. Thanks!

All the best,

Mark Fisher on Unicorns, Ninjas, and Business Success

Fri, 12/28/2018 - 05:00

Mark Fisher is the co-founder of Mark Fisher Fitness, one of the most eccentric and successful fitness gyms of the fitness industry. In 2015, the MFF was recognized as one of Inc. 500’s fastest growing companies in America as well as one of the Top 20 Gyms in America by Men’s Health.

In addition to leading one of the most unique fitness gyms in the world, Mark is also the co-founder of Business for Unicorns, a coaching and consulting company helping business owners become exceptional entrepreneurs.

Mark joins me to discuss how he created Mark Fisher Fitness and how it has evolved since its inception. He describes how he came up with the use of unicorns and ninjas for branding and how it helped propel his business upward.

He also discusses why he stopped acting to pursue a career in fitness, and describes the kind of coach he has become. He also explains why he believes there’s no such thing as the best coach for everyone, the biggest mistakes he has seen trainers and fitness entrepreneurs make throughout his coaching career, and what “creating the city you want to live in” means to him.

 

When you have a business, it’s an opportunity to create the city you want to live in. – Mark Fisher

 

This week on The Physical Preparation Podcast:

  • Mark’s career before he founded Mark Fisher Fitness.

  • Why he’s interested in speaking at seminars and the topics he likes to talk about.
  • What we can expect from Mark Fisher in the near future.

 

Mark Fisher’s Life & Training Advice for Fitness Coaches:

 

  • Being the best trainer is not synonymous to being the best coach a person will ever meet.
  • You can’t ever stop marketing. That’s one of the worst mistakes a business owner can make.
  • Accept everyone as they are and always come from a place of service to provide clients with the experience they expect.
  • The second you appeal to everybody you appeal to nobody.
