    The Fountain Of Youth - Deep Sleep & How You Can Get More Of It!

    The Fountain Of Youth - Deep Sleep & How You Can Get More Of It!

    On this week’s episode of Krush Performance, prepare to get better as we discuss how sleep works, why we are having so many issues getting great sleep, and most important, what you can do to sleep better RIGHT NOW!

    Stay younger, perform better, and be healthier and it all revolves around the quality of your sleep.

    “Every single disease of the elderly is attached to lack of sleep, deep sleep in particular.”

    No one escapes this planet without aging in some form. For our athletes, it’s about prolonging your career and being at a higher state of readiness each and every day but the implications of quality sleep or poor sleep go well beyond sport into everyday life.

    If there is one thing that you can do to improve health, your aging process, and your daily performance, sleep is that one silver bullet that will unlock a healthier lifestyle.

    We talk with scientist, author, speaker, CEO, and Co-Founder of ChiliSleep, Tara Youngblood.

    It’s one thing to research a problem. It’s another to explain why a problem occurs but it’s a whole new ball game when you do all of this and then go the extra distance to discover and provide a tangible solution.

    We also discuss the dark side of over-the-counter sleep aids, how you can quiet your brain to get quality sleep and we will lay out the recipe for getting quality sleep right now and every night moving forward.

    Sleep is a skill. It takes some work but it is well worth the effort. The return on your investment is priceless!

    The Fast & The Furious - NHL Playoffs & Becoming A Player

    The Fast & The Furious - NHL Playoffs & Becoming A Player

    They skate at 25 miles per hour, shoot a puck over 100 miles per hour, and when they collide it will rock you to your core. It is fast. It is furious. It’s the NHL Playoffs!!!

    The prize….. Lord Stanley’s Cup. Hoisting this storied trophy overhead is the dream of any kid who has ever laced up a skate.

    As we watch the on-ice battles of the NHL playoffs, the rest of the hockey world heads into the offseason. So, what should you be focusing on during the summer months to up your game this fall?

    Are there things you should be focusing on to raise your potential… to raise your value as a player both short term and long term?

    Yes!

    In this week’s episode of Krush Performance, we talk with Barry Butt, founder of Premier Strength, one of the most successful player development programs in the game of hockey.

    There are crucial aspects of performance hockey players should be considering during the offseason and much of this depends on your age, your level of play, game experience, and where your hockey dreams are pointing you.

    We talk about athlete development for player performance and layout strategies we feel you seriously need to consider if you are playing the game of hockey.

    A little hint….. get off of the ice if you want to succeed on the ice.

    The Executive Suite: Chemistry, Culture & Leadership - Organizational & Team Performance Episode #6

    The Executive Suite: Chemistry, Culture & Leadership - Organizational & Team Performance Episode #6

    We use words like chemistry and culture but who is really steering the ship? Who is empowering the team, the organization, and the people within it to get the job done? At the end of the day, the responsibility of team and organizational success falls squarely on team leadership but what exactly does that leadership look like?

    This week on Krush Performance, we step into the executive suites of elite sport performance as we talk with former Major League Baseball General Manager of the Montreal Expos, Boston Red Sox, and Baltimore Orioles and three-time MLB Executive of the Year, Dan Duquette.

    It seems that if we can’t measure or put a value on something we tend to underestimate its importance. We like to measure value and we like to have numbers and assess progress.

    Can we measure team chemistry? Can we measure the influence of team culture? Can you put a number on how much it impacts performance outcomes?

    You may be surprised as we continue our look into the Krush 2022 theme of organizational and team performance.

    Back In The Win Column: Organizational & Team Performance Episode #5

    Back In The Win Column: Organizational & Team Performance Episode #5

    This week on Krush Performance, we dive back into our 2022 theme of organizational and team performance as we chat with the Director of Human Performance Services for Cirque de Soleil, André Lachance.

    In what might be one of the most demanding performance schedules, André has been charged with developing systems and strategies to reduce the risk and incidence of injury, help avoid and cope with burnout and stress, and keep all of the Circ performers at their very best. With over 400 performances a year this may be one of the most demanding performance environments…EVER.

    Also, we will discuss André’s new book titled, “Team Chemistry: 30 Elements For Coaches To Foster Cohesion, Strengthen Communication Skills & Create A Healthy Sport Culture.”

    Finally, it’s Spring! We have Major League Baseball, the NHL season is winding down, and the NBA Postseason is underway.

    No better time to talk about organizational and team performance and break down the strategies that will get you into and keep you in the win column.

    Baseball Is Back! Are You Ready?

    Baseball Is Back! Are You Ready?

    From the shortened spring training to possible rule changes there is a lot to unpack as the MLB season kicks off. We take a Krush look at the teams, players, and storylines we will be watching this season.

    While the LA Dodgers top the list with a $277.8 million payroll, the Baltimore Orioles are waaaaaay down at the bottom with a payroll of just over $30 million, we’ll discuss the impact of the unbalanced payroll situation baseball finds itself in.

    Also, why are some teams at a disadvantage even before the first pitch is thrown? There is an opportunity here for those who know what it is and understand how to handle it.

    Finally, I’ll make my picks for the division titles, our long-shot hopefuls, and who will be the 2022 World Series Champions.

    Baseball ball is back and we set you up for the season this week on Krush Performance.

    Spring Into Top Performance – Sleep Science For Top Performance

    Spring Into Top Performance – Sleep Science For Top Performance

    To help our athlete’s recovery better, perform better, reduce risk of injury and be at the highest possible state of readiness every single day, what is the most important factor in maximizing performance?

    Sleep!

    This week on Krush Performance, we talk sleep science with Krush Hall of Famer, Dr. Charles Samuels from the Center For Sleep And Human Performance.

    Sleep is one of the most powerful influencers on your daily performance. It will impact you and your performance. It will impact your development, your training, your learning and your recovery and there is a “pay it forward” situation here. It’s a compound effect because what happens today will influence your tomorrow and then the next day and the next.

    Are you on track? What are the stages of sleep? Is broken sleep a deal breaker? What exactly is sleep debt and can we pay it back? How much sleep do you need and is there a right way and wrong way to nap? How can we better deal with the issues of travel?

    We discuss all of this and much, much more on this week’s episode of Krush Performance.
