    The baseball season is upon us and as games kick off there is one thing that I can guarantee, Sport Medicine Clinics Coast to Coast will be Flooded with Elbow and Shoulder Injuries.

    One of the Greatest Issues in Sport Today,

    The Injury Trends In Baseball.

    And not just at the professional level but at every level from the grassroots right up to professional Baseball.

    Teams Spent Nearly $500 Million on pitchers who were injured over the 2022 MLB season and elbow surgeries are one of the fastest growing medical procedures in athletes….under 15 years of age!!!

    We want answers and to get those answers we are going to have to ask questions.

    Episode 24-08: Spring Break - Are You Ready?

    Episode 24-08: Spring Break - Are You Ready?

    Are you ready for the change?

    Are you prepared for new sports, the move from indoor to outdoor or transitioning from the snow & cold to the warm weather?

    With the spring comes a time of transition and you had better be prepared.

    Look at any of the major sports and you will see a training camp or preseason period that is specifically designed to progressively help players get ready to perform at their very best when the season starts. Top performance and injury prevention are the two main priorities here.

    So, as we transition into spring doesn’t it make sense that you prepare as well?

    Take the time to get ready for any indoor to outdoor transitions or as you get set for your spring and summer sports.

    This week on Krush Performance I’d like to do exactly that, take some time to get set up for the spring & summer.

    Here is what we are working on:

    The Krush War on Sugar:

    The World Health Organization just Announced the latest obesity data and its NOT GOOD!!!!

    The analysis estimates that nearly 880 million adults and 159 million children lived with obesity in 2022.

    Obesity rates among children and adolescents worldwide increased fourfold from 1990 to 2022, while obesity rates among adults more than doubled.

    Coming this spring, we will break down the data, look at why human health is changing so rapidly and we discuss what you can do RIGHT Now to protect yourself & your kids.

    Spring Baseball: Are you Ready?

    As the Baseball season gets underway here is what I can promise you, once the throwing starts and games begin medical clinics across the nation will be flooded with shoulder and elbow issues!

    Some of them will be minor some will be major but the VAST majority are preventable if you just take the time to properly prepare for the season.

    To help you avoid falling victim to injury and to increase your performance we are going to talk to some of the top minds the Game.

    Plus we’ll share the Krush Teams, players and stories we are following this season, there is so much going on in the game right now.

    We’ll discuss.

    Perception:

    Perception is the Krush Theme for 2024 and I’m looking forward to continuing our deep dive into what I believe is one of the most influential aspects of sport performance.

    Over the course of this entire 2024 Krush Season we will visit with some of the worlds top experts to get a full understanding of perception and its roll in Athlete & Player Development and in Human Performance at large.

    Then as we roll into summer we’ll look at:

    · The Paris Olympics

    · The Hockey Off Season

    · The NHL & NBA Post Season & Championships

    · And we’ll continue to look into our “Creating Coachable Players Program”, I believe it is going to be a game changers for so many athletes and coaches out there. Super fun stuff.

    If you have any topics you would like us to discuss let me know – info @ush performance.

    We always say look back to Learn – look forward TO PLAN and right now – be in the Moment.

    I challenge you to look back on your last season & learn a s much as you can, look forward to clearly see where you want to go and then put it all together. Write it out, get a calendar or a note book and map your performance plan.

    Because Problem Solving and Decision Making are two of the most important skills you can have when you are Creating Coachable Player.

    Episode 24-07: The Long Game

    Episode 24-07: The Long Game

    Just how long does it take to become a Top Performer?

    There is an Ebb and Flow to Athlete Development, its a Long Game and there are No Short Cuts!

    We know the process of athlete and player development operates on a timeline. Unfortunately, if the timeline becomes skewed and/or corrupt you have NO chance of reaching your True Potential.

    Could we be Destroying more Talent than we are Creating?

    With the greatest of intentions, we want the very best for our athletes right now but as we rush our athletes toward perfection and top performance, are we sacrificing the very process that is designed to create that top performance.

    Where exactly do top performers come from?

    What do they do differently from everyone else?

    Is there a process for optimum development and if yes, what does that process look like?

    Understanding the Long Game of Athlete & Player Development is crucial to reaching one’s potential and a vital part of Creating Coachable Players.

    We break it all down so you can move forward with purpose on this week’s episode of Krush Performance.

    “Over the Counter Sleep Aids are Useless for sleep…there is Limited evidence that any of them work…more concerning they are Sedating and Blunt Performance – That’s not what we are looking for in an Athlete..”

    In this episode, we go back into the Krush Archives to revisit an all important conversation with Krush Favorite Dr. Charles Samuels, Medical Director at the Center for Sleep & Human Performance.

    There are some powerful routines and strategies you can use right now to get a better sleep and get back to sleep when you wake up in the middle of the night.

    An all-important episode of Krush Performance as we discuss strategies for better sleep.

    Episode 24-05: Context: For Optimizing Athlete and Player Development

    Episode 24-05: Context: For Optimizing Athlete and Player Development

    Context is defined as: “the interrelated conditions in which something exists or occurs.”

    I use the concept of context all the time in our performance programming and its very important for a number of reasons.

    When building programs for our athletes I call it Player Context.

    Player Context is a picture in time that tells us where an athlete/player is at in relationship to where they have come from and considering where they are going or want to go.

    And when it comes to analytics, statistics and athlete testing in sport Context becomes a critical part of the process.

    We rarely – if ever – show our athletes their testing numbers. We may, from time to time, sit down with an athlete and show them a critical number or result and explain why its so important – good or bad – but for the most part we only share recommendations that come out of the testing numbers.

    If we do decide to share numbers with an athlete,

    We give the numbers context… clear context… and this is important.

    This week on Krush Performance I share our approach to establishing Context, why we feel it is one of the most important aspects of Creating Coachable Players.

    Episode 24-04: Questions From the Krusher’s & The Greatest Show in Sport

    Episode 24-04: Questions From the Krusher’s & The Greatest Show in Sport

    It was predicted that over 110 million people were going to sit down to watch the Super Bowl LVIII.

    It’s a staggering number – and the very reason companies are willing to pay $7 million to air a 30 second commercial…. probably money well spent in the big picture.

    Today we dive back into the Krush Mail bag to answer questions from the Krusher’s.

    There have been some great questions, comments, feedback and yes even smart remarks, which I love.

    And with the spectacular wrap up to the NFL season we just witnessed we are going to kick this episode off with a football question BUT NOT before we quickly talk about the Super Bowl.

    What is the greatest show in sport? We find out.

    And, I share a great success story I just came across. It confirms once again that there no single path to the top.

    Questions from the Krusher’s: I wanted to address some of the questions from our in-box and social media.

    We discuss questions addressing:

    · Individualization for athlete and player development and what it looks like.

    · How your Focus can be derailing your performance & what you should be focusing on to performance at your best.

    · The downside of Energy Drinks, Caffeine & Sugar, how they can derail your performance.

    · Strategies for addressing Stress and Anxiety.

    Our Goal has always been to get you thinking about things you might not be thinking about.

    This week you get us thinking as we answer Questions from the Krusher’s.
