A review of Perform Better Phoenix
by Carson Boddicker on Apr 19th, 2010
As usual, attending seminars is one of the highlights of my year. There are few other places where you get to spend a day with a number of bright minds and talk shop. As usual, this year's Perform Better Phoenix did not disappoint. Presentations were given by Michael Boyle, Alwyn Cosgrove, Todd Durkin, and Gray Cook and I picked some good information from each. 1. Michael Boyle: Preparing to Workout Coach Boyle's presentation, as al...

Regional interdependence and the necessity of assessment
by Carson Boddicker on Feb 24th, 2010

Be Particular, but See the Big Picture
by Carson Boddicker on Jun 15th, 2009
A few days ago I was coaching a set of inline half-kneeling chops and was about to have a come-apart because the athlete's knee was adducted underneath her. This same athlete has had a lot of difficulty controling the same knee in jumping and landing. As you know, this adducted/internally rotated position is the prime one for non-contact ACL injuries. As I sat there lamenting the posture (as I feel structure certainly dictates function), ano...
