Travel and still training...

I've had a bit of travel - a one day trip to Orlando to present at the TSAC conference for the NSCA.
A good event and great to have the opportunity to present for the NSCA.

Three take aways:
1) Ankles - they are important.  Check out the new Motor Control Screen from the FMS which includes an Ankle Clearing.

2) I think I counted 5-6 different talks on Screening and Assessment.  Just look into and use the FMS IMO

3) Speed Saves.  Martin Rooney and an Army Ranger were presenting on a speed test to make sure our soldiers have a better chance of coming home safely.  Important work.

I hit a classic 32 kg Simple and Sinister session on Monday the 10th.
45 minute Elliptical on Tuesday the 11th (avg HR 130)

Foam roller and GFM
