Olympics, Breathing, PRI, and Athletic Excellence

I spent the weekend in Phoenix, AZ at a PRI Vision course and spending some time with Neil Rampe, Charlie Weingroff, Doug(las) Kechijian, and a couple guys from the Diamondbacks staff. I still have a lot to digest and will spend some time studying the course materials over the next few weeks to see what I can do to improve my programs. As is always the case when I get together with these guys, I learned just as much outside the course as I did inside. A lot of great conversations!

I got back late last night, so I’m brain-fried right now and pretty far behind on a bunch of work (just found out I’m presenting in Philadelphia, twice, in two weeks…with no presentation started!). Fortunately, I was able to jump on a call with my friend Maria Mountain before I left and she just posted the recording of our call. In it, she asked me about:

  1. U.S. vs. Canada Olympic hockey (this wasn’t a questioning as much as trash talking!)
  2. How I use Postural Restoration Institute techniques with my athletes
  3. How breathing can influence performance and recovery
  4. The key qualities shared by exceptional athletes

The call isn’t overly long, but we cover a lot of good stuff, so make sure you check it out! Also, I don’t know all the details, but I know Maria is going to offer an AWESOME deal on all of our goalie training products, so if you’re a goalie and looking for great training opportunities, make sure you check out her site over the next few days: Hockey Training Pro
