I've been trying to get this post put up the past few days, but finally my fingers have defrosted enough to get it typed out. I haven't been at the facility this past week because I've been up in New Jersey working with some of the best strength coaches in the nation to make sure that you are getting the most of your program at Genesis. Sorry... I Only Worked With Real Coaches & Trainers. No Situation Here I have 3 words... "It Is Cold" What I Have Woken Up To Everyday This Week I've braved the 6-8 degree weather to make sure that I'm learning the newest ways out there to not only keep the Genesis athletes on top of their game and dominating, but also healthy. What coaches and locations did I train and workout at? Underground Strength Gym - Edison New Jersey - Zach Even-Esh DeFranco's Training Systems - Wyckoff, New Jersey - Joe DeFranco & Mike Guadango This month at Genesis is going to be intense. With the knowledge I'm rolling back into town with is definitely going to give my athletes a step ahead of all their competition, and I would hate for you to miss out. We have a few spots still open and normally this is about the time baseball coaches and parents make the horrible mistake of actually stopping their athlete from training, but not at Genesis. We only work with the parents, athletes, and coaches who get it and because of that we haven't had one athlete put his training on hold because the season is here. If you think you have the drive and dedication to become a champion and dominate the competition, then you [...]
Are you strong enough to be fast? The easiest way to increase your speed is to get stronger... Period. Far to often to athletes and parents get caught up in the gimmicks of "speed training", and forget what actually makes someone not just faster, but also a better athlete. That is strength and power. Athletes and parents come to me all the time asking if I can make them faster, but then turning around and saying that they aren't allowed to squat because of a lower back weakness or knee problem. If you continue to baby a weak area, how is it ever going to get stronger and healthier? If you have a weak lower back, then no matter how "fast" you become, you aren't going to go anywhere. You have to lift hard, heavy, correct, and powerful. If you do this and concentrate on your entire backside (calves, hamstrings, glutes, lower back, and upper back), then you will get faster. Chains On a 45 Degree Hyper = Ultimate Speed Builder Far too often to people only train what they can see and this causes all sorts of muscle imbalances, injuries, weaknesses, and problems. You give the body a good hard dose of posterior chain training using the correct exercises, techniques, and methods, you automatically become faster... and not just faster on a straight away like other speed schools teach. You start exploding in and out of cuts, accelerate faster, run through and around people, change of direction, and dominate no matter what situation you are in during the game. BUT If you continue to train how everyone else trains then all you can get prepared for, is injuries, muscle imbalances, never getting better, and [...]
Nearly every baseball player no matter how old only has a few months left before their season starts up. Unfortunately for the majority of these athletes, they will actually start worrying about training to get ready for the season in January. I'll never understand how someone can expect to prepare for a 4 to 8 month long season in just a month, but it seems to be the norm especially the higher up a player gets. I've watched many high school, collegiate, and pro baseball players say they need to take 2-3 months off after the season to let their body recover, because last season really wore on them... This just starts a vicious cycle in which they continue to get weaker and more injury prone, because they have to rest and not train to get stronger and healthier. Here is a short video of one of our pro baseball guys who wants to be different. He realized that these 2+ months are key in determining just how ready you are going to be for the next season, and he wants to make the most of it. Ben just got back from a Fall Ball league in Arizona and just recently finished up his regular season with the Toledo Mud Hens the AAA affiliate for the Detroit Tigers. He knows that to make that next jump is going to take hard work and dedication and while everyone else is "resting and recovering", he is busting it at the facility to get better. Check out the video below of one of his upper body days and let me know what you think. You will also notice just how much upper back work we are doing compared [...]

A short video today showing what even the coaches at the facility can do. Stephen knocks out a huge box jump, and then I bang out 56.5" hurdle jump. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BopLl0_oEpk If you want to be able to make athletes the best, you have to continue to train like them. If a few old and un-athletic coaches can make jumps like this after training at the facility, imagine what you could do if you put your mind to not only your games, but also your training!!
Ray Berry graduated college and wants to continue playing football professionally. The dude is a freak. All he needed is some hardcore training to push him to the next level. How many athletes do you know that when something didn't go right the first time they quit? Ray didn't quit. He realized that he needed to train differently at a place that will get him to that next level. That is why he chose Genesis. Here is a compilation of some of Ray's training and him talking about the results he has achieved in just 7 weeks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wF2zoaPbYr4 Do you want to make that jump from Freshman/JV -> Varsity, Bench -> Starter, Varsity -> College, College -> Pro's?
