Optimizing Adaptation and Performance Seminar

Today I have news that I’m extremely excited to share with you.

James LaValle, Mike Potenza, and I are doing a new seminar this Summer called Optimizing Adaptation and Performance.

The one-day seminar will be hosted at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning in Woburn, MA on Saturday July 14th, 2018. We just found out that the seminar has been approved for CEUs from the NSCA as well.

The seminar will dive into topics spanning the entire performance continuum, including:

  • Using blood markers and physiological goals to drive different nutrition and supplementation interventions to enhance adaptation, maximize performance, or facilitate recovery
  • Efficient ways to use assessment and monitoring data to improve individualization of training and recovery methods within a team environment
  • Effective program design strategies used to retain performance qualities and allow for recovery during times of increased competitive demand and stress

As a brief intro to the speakers…

James LaValle is one of the world’s leading experts in clinical pharmacology. In addition to consulting with collegiate and professional teams, Olympic athletes, and major pharmaceutical and nutrition companies like Bayer, CVS, Rite Aid, P&G, Helsin, and Thorne Research, he has authored 16 ebooks and 20 books including his most recently book, Your Blood Never Lies, and his best seller, Cracking the Metabolic Code. He was also selected to direct the Pro Football Hall of Fame state of the art performance and health rejuvenation facility at the Institute for a Hall of Fame Life in Canton, OH. James specializes in using blood markers to create an individualized plan to nutrition and supplementation. Despite an incredibly accomplished resume, he could very well be the best kept secret in sports performance.

Mike Potenza is entering his 13th year as the Director of Strength and Conditioning for the San Jose Sharks, which he joined after working at Wisconsin, Harvard and Colgate. He was also the Director of Performance for two United States Air Force Pararescue teams within the National Guard Bureau, overseeing performance testing, program design and implementation, establishing reporting metrics on injury trends, resource usage and team readiness, as well as directing the physical therapist and orthopedic manual therapist for the forces. In both settings, Mike is heavily involved with directing rehabilitation and reconditioning efforts to help bridge the gap between acute rehab and a full return to elite level performance/competition.

Needless to say, it’s going to be an awesome day. There is an incredible amount of education and experience behind the methods we’ll discuss at the seminar. Simply, the strategies you’ll learn work, and they’re incredibly powerful.

You can find a full itinerary below:

The overarching goal of the day is to provide you with a comprehensive model of athlete performance, including the assessment and analysis tools, as well as programming, recovery, nutrition and supplementation strategies to best serve the individual needs of today’s athlete.

I’m personally excited to hear James’ and Mikes’ presentations. With an in-house lunch, and a round table discussion to end the day, I also think a lot of the best exchanges will come through discussions with the audience.

In short, this will be a great opportunity to learn powerful strategies to help your athletes, get CEUs, and network with other sharp professionals within the field.

I hope to see you there! Feel free to email me with any questions or post them below.
