How to install a Switching Defense Playbook

Subj:  The fastest way to kill the offensive rhythm
Hey Coach,
I’ve expressed in previous emails just how out-and-out excited I get when we can present you with a new playbook…
It’s even better when that playbook details the #1 trend in basketball defense.
Well, release the pigeons and sound the trumpets!
Here we go…
Let’s state this right up front:
Old school logic called the switching defense “soft”.  
(It was actually Bobby Knight who led that charge.  He HATED it.)
Yet, here we are.
Because the game and the players have changed significantly since the days of getting the ball to the low post where a Patrick Ewing or Shaq was waiting...
Honestly, how often do you see that style of play anymore?
That approach has been slowly – but surely – displaced by a game of speed with (arguably) more versatile players.
Switching can kill the rhythm of the offense and cause the ball to become sticky.

Offensive players and the ball become stagnant.

So far, so good.  Right?

Much of the success on offense stems from having great player and ball movement to break down the defense. The switch can slow this down.

Now it becomes easier for the defense to position themselves properly and guard the offensive action.

What happens then? (I love this part…)

You start daring the offense to beat you over and over again- “Are you good enough to beat us by
making individual plays all night?"
You take defense – which is normally in reactionary mode – and move into a position of MUCH more control.
When executed correctly, you force the offense out of their comfort zone and into a style that suits you and your team.
So, what does the defense of the future look like?  You’re looking at it.
And I strongly recommend you understand the switching defense at the deepest level.
Here is step #1.
Our new “Switching Defense” playbook is 66 pages of everything you need to know – and implement.
See you courtside,

Strength Coach-Comprehensive Training Program for Knee Rehab Continuation

Jonas Beauchemin

If you are a strength coach or a personal trainer the chances that you have encountered an athlete recovering from some sort of ligamentous knee injury at some point in your career is pretty high. Whether it is damage to the ACL, MCL, PCL, LCL, or some combination of any of these, the incidence in the athletic and general population is alarming. Hirshman, et al estimated that 1 out of every 1000 people in the US incurs a knee ligament injury each year. The current US population is around 304,000,000 so that means according to Hirshman's figures there will be a projected 304,000 knee ligament injuries in the US in 2008. Of course our primary goal must be a pro-active one with an eye toward reducing the incidence of knee injuries. Unfortunately the mindset of the majority is to get hurt and then train or rehab rather than training with prevention in mind. Therefore it is inevitable that at some point you are going to work with a client that has suffered some sort of ligamentous knee injury.

Working in a private strength and conditioning facility, we see numerous athletes recovering from knee injuries each year. In most cases we are able to work congruently with the physical therapist. In some cases the client or athlete has completed physical therapy, and at other times we get clients that have been released prematurely from physical therapy. When it comes to these cases of premature release the athlete or client reports that their physical therapist, orthopedic surgeon, or family physician has cleared them for physical activity with little to no limitations. Sometimes if we're lucky we get documentation of their contraindications. It is not our jobs as strength coaches and personal trainers to play the role of a PT. It is, however, our job to train the athlete or client in a way that perpetuates the healing and strengthening process in order to get them back into pain free competition or daily life in a timely manner.

I am a firm believer in Gray Cook's Functional Movement Screen so this is the first step I will take with a knee injury client. Obviously the type, severity, and time frame of the injury are all going to play a factor in movement patterns and physical limitations. However, generally I find the deep squat and in-line lunge cause pain if the individual is in or around the 12 week time frame from reconstruction or from the time of injury of a partial tear.
Although I understand that Gray would advise the personal trainer or strength coach to refer out anyone experiencing pain with any movement screen tests to a medical professional, we have come to expect this result so we have developed training methods to adapt to these situations. Plyometrics (bilaterally or unilaterally on the injured leg), and running will also usually induce pain in the injured knee. Another trend that I have noticed is a lack of hip stability, particularly an inability to control the femur of the front leg in a lunging pattern and of the stance leg in a single leg straight leg deadlift (1-Leg RDL). I attribute this to compensation patterns inhibiting the glute medius and piriformis function. Very limited hip external rotation is another trend I have noticed, possibly due the individual's tendency to avoid stretching and exercising full range of motion at the hip of the injured leg which will likely result in tissue density issues.

Now that we have covered the screening process, let's talk about program design. In order to allocate credit where it is due I must say that I have been working under the tutelage of Michael Boyle for two years now so many of the exercises and techniques I will speak about are a direct reflection of what I have learned from him. The basic program outline should be very similar to a program for an uninjured person, which would include foam rolling, stretching, mobility, activation, warm-up, strength training, and conditioning.
Just as any other program it is important to implement Mike's simple rule: "If it hurts, don't do it!"
This means telling the client right from the start that this is a yes or no question and you will not accept; kind of, sort of, not really, or a little bit as an answer. It is also important to note that progression within the rehab population must always be dictated by progress, not time. To make things easier in this article I will include phases in terms of general time frame but a client that has not improved should not be pushed into the next progressions simply because the timeline says the phase is complete. 
Foam Rolling 
Foam rolling will always come first and will involve all of the basic muscle groups that are usually covered (hamstrings, quads, glutes, hip rotators, hip flexors, mid traps, lats, pecs, etc.). Be sure to pay special attention to any areas of significant tightness that were uncovered during the screening process. As previously mentioned this is usually the piriformis but can include glute max, glute med, TFL, and psoas. Normally 10 rolls back and forth are done for traditional foam rolling however, up to 20 rolls can be applied to these areas of significant tightness. 
Just like foam rolling, basic muscle groups need to be addressed in the pre-workout stretching but........Join to keep reading.....

What Is Taught On Fire Science Degrees?
By: Claire Williams

Uncontrolled fires are catastrophes that can cause damage to property and belongings as well as potentially have psychological impacts on its victims. Ultimately, fires can affect how people go about their daily lives. It is often argued that those who risk the lives of themselves and others should have a degree in fire fighting or at least have an understanding of how fires work.

What Do You Learn On a Fire Science Degree?

There are key areas that a degree in fire science looks in to. Firstly, students will tend to consider analytical approaches to fire protection and learn how to investigate whether a fire is likely. Most fire science degrees also incorporate a discussion of disaster and fire prevention planning. This normally includes topics such as problematic materials that might cause a blaze as well as further the spread of flames. The management of certain materials is considered in order to provide the clearest directions for use and maintenance.

Other key subjects that are studied on online fire science degrees include the role of the fire service within the community, the technical legal and social aspects of arson, the application of technology to firefighting and, also, the psychological effects of fire dynamics. Understanding of the water supply also forms part of several online fire science courses as well as determining what constitutes fire-related human behavior.

Can It Prepare Your For A Career In The Fire Service?

Most Firefighters will have some kind of qualification either done previously to joining the force or ‘on the job’. An online Fire Science degree can equip you with everything you need to begin a career in the fire service. Most online schools provide options where the student can learn about fire behavior and combustion including the basic concepts of fire, how it spreads and how to control it. Introductions to the various states of matter, the various constituents of fire and the physical and chemical properties of fire, should also be touched upon. Most online degrees will explore the fundamentals of constructing buildings, their types of structure and designs as well as the impact of buildings on firefighting.

Do You Need A Degree To Fight Fire?

Whilst you don’t necessarily need a degree to become a firefighter, it is highly advised to study an online fire science degree if you intend to have a rewarding career in the service. If you apply to your local fire brigade after successfully completing high school you will be given advice on the best route for you to take. To progress in your career a Fire Science degree or Emergency Management degree would be necessary to reach the upper levels of the service.

Online fire science degrees are available at various levels. An Associate of Fire Science degree is the first level a student completes although if they have certain qualifications with sufficient credits they are able to enter at the Bachelor of Fire Science level. Once qualified graduates can then expect to earn a salary of around $45,000 per year. It is customary for a firefighter to earn an increase in salary each time they achieve a promotion – a fire chief can earn anything up to $100,000 per year.

“When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost” (John 19:30).
Faith is our positive response to what Jesus did for us on the cross. Our faith doesn’t move God; He has already moved and finished everything that needed to be done for our salvation.

Joel Osteen Ministries Recent Messages Featuring: Victoria Osteen - Unity In The Body Of Christ

In this message, Victoria will teach there is a commanded blessing when we have unity. The Bible says when believers dwell together in unity, “there the LORD commanded the blessing—life forevermore” (Psalm 133:3). We need to fight together for our faith, not fight with one another about our faith! It is only the love of God that brings people to the arms and saving power of Jesus Christ. [Video below] God is saying it’s up to us to keep in unity and the bond of peace. That tells me that you and I must watch our words and attitudes and walk worthy of our calling under the blood of Jesus and stand humbly in God’s righteousness, not our own “rightness.” We can break the power of darkness and show people the irresistible love of the Father! This is message #740, "Unity In The Body Of Christ", by Victoria Osteen. For more inspirational messages, visit

When You Feel Like You’re Going Backward

Post by Joel Osteen on 

We all go through times when we feel like we're going backward. Things were going well, we knew we had God's favor, but then things turned. We lost a major client, our child didn't get the scholarship, or a friend walked away. We wonder, "What did we do wrong?" But just because you face difficulties that you don't understand doesn't mean you're not in God's will. God is ordering our steps, and sometimes He will order a cutback. Just as there are seasons of growth, there are seasons of pruning. Without the pruning we won't become all we were created to be.
Jesus said, "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit" (John 15:1–2). That makes sense. When we have things in our life that are not productive—a friend who is pulling us down or a job that's leading nowhere—He'll cut those things away so we can put our energy into things that move us forward. But Jesus added, "Every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so it will be even more fruitful." The only way to get from "fruit" to "more fruit" is to be cutback. That means there are times when you're doing the right thing and the wrong thing happens. Instead of getting discouraged, recognize that it's a pruning season. Without that cutback you won't see new growth. He wouldn't let you lose your job if He wasn't going to give you something better. He may have pruned a friend out of your life, but there's a better friend coming. You may be satisfied to stay where you are, but God is not satisfied. He has new levels, new opportunities, new relationships in store for you.
Jesus went on to say, "If you abide in me, you will bear much fruit." In John 15, He mentions "fruit," "more fruit," "and much fruit." The way you move up, the way you increase, is simply by abiding. He was saying, "When things happen that you don't understand, abide in Me, trust Me, keep being your best. Believe that I'm still directing your steps, praise Me, and stay faithful." If you keep doing the right thing, keep serving, keep giving, keep expecting favor, keep going the extra mile, then your passing the test. You're about to come in to much fruit. New doors are about to open, new relationships are on the way, negative situations are about to turn around. Because you abide in Him, abundance is coming, healing is coming, breakthroughs are coming, new levels of your destiny.
