James LaValle, Mike Potenza and I sought to create a learning environment that we simply didn’t see anywhere else in the industry.

We wanted to show practitioners how different components of a comprehensive health and performance plan can be integrated to deliver optimal results.

Program design and delivery, sports science, and nutrition/supplementation shouldn’t live in their own silos. They should be orchestrated together to identify the athletes’ primary limiting factor to success and to help find the best possible solution.

A more diverse knowledge base and skill set allows you to help more people, and deliver better results, faster.

Mike Potenza (San Jose Sharks) recently shared an article on 3 powerful strategies he’s used to successfully return his players from injury.

Unfortunately, it’s still extremely common for athletes to be told to rest for several weeks until the injury “heals”, and then receive a green light to fully return to sport.

While time may allow for the injury to heal, the inactivity associated with rest will cause the athlete to significantly detrain.

Just as we wouldn’t recommend that an athlete sits on the couch all off-season and then transitions into competition, the recommendation of simply resting sets the athlete up for failure.

Simply, the athlete returns slower, weaker, and with less endurance.

The methods and progressions Mike outlines have been key to his success in helping his athletes, not just return to sport, but return to the same level of elite performance they achieved prior to the injury. 

The goal is never to just have the athlete in the line-up; the goal is to have the athlete prepared to make an impact.

And while Mike has spent the last 14 years working in the NHL, the methods he discusses apply to athletes in all sports, including “tactical” athletes.

Check out the article here >> 3 Powerful Strategies for Successful Reconditioning

In the article, Mike discusses:

  1. An often overlooked, but extremely effective method for preserving and developing muscle mass around an injured area
  2. An essential strategy to develop and guide program design and motivate the athlete throughout the reconditioning process
  3. How to “program” sport participation as part of the rehabilitation process to allow the athlete to make an immediate impact upon returning

Today I’m excited to share another guest article from Mike Potenza, which he wrote for Mike Robertson’s site this week.

How athletes address their in-season training can have a profound impact on their speed, power, strength, and overall energy throughout the season.

This is particularly important as a failed in-season plan will lead to maximal detraining late in the season, when athletes are expected to perform at their best.

Click here to read >> The Myth of In-Season Maintenance

In this article, Mike shares:

  • The challenges he faced when designing programs in the NHL compared to college
  • The physical and mental harm caused by a “maintenance” mentality
  • A simple chart to better understand how often you need to train certain qualities
  • The importance of having a system for tracking workload and training progress

This is a quick read, but has a lot of important information. Check it out at the link below!

Mike Potenza, who is in his 14th year as Director of S&C for the San Jose Sharks, recently did an interview for Robbie Bourke’s ‘All Things Strength & Wellness’ podcast.

Check out the interview here >> Mike Potenza – Optimizing Adaptation & Performance

In the interview, they covered a lot of great information, including:

  • Mike’s background
  • Why Mike, Jim and myself produced “Optimizing Adaptation and Performance”
  • How many times a year Mike is looking at his athletes blood chemistry
  • How has Jim LaValles work influenced Mike’s programming
  • Nutritional protocols for concussion rehabilitation
  • How Jim LaValle objectifies his nutritional interventions
  • How Mike tries to regulate his players biological rhythms and exposure to proper light spectrum’s
  • Mike’s top and current book recommendations
  • How Mike learns
  • How Mike decides what information he can trust
  • Who Mike would invite to dinner, and why, if he could invite any 5 people, dead or alive

I’m extremely excited to share that today Optimizing Adaptation & Performance is officially live!

Optimizing Adaptation & Performance features over 7.5 hours of video and PDFs from all of the presentations from a a seminar I did last Summer with James LaValle and Mike Potenza at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning.

There’s more health and performance information available now than ever before, and it’s become increasingly difficult to sift through all of the marketing hype to find the most effective solutions.

When Mike, James and I originally talked about putting this seminar together, our goal was simple – share our most effective research- and experience-supported solutions to help optimize an athletes health, training adaptation, and game-day performance.

With that in mind, the presentations cover a wide array of topics, including:

  • In-season program design
  • Multi-stage reconditioning of injured athletes
  • Workload monitoring and developing effective reports for coaches
  • The most effective recovery strategies for different types of training/sport stress
  • Using testing as a diagnostic process to design more effective programs
  • Hormonal implications of overtraining/under recovery
  • Training, nutrition, and supplementation strategies to optimize mitochondrial development, and muscular hypertrophy/strength
  • How health of the gut, brain, and immune system influence each other, and nutrition and supplementation strategies to optimize all three

Proven Strategies for Better Results

On a personal note, I’m really excited to share this information for a couple reasons.

First, this information is powerful – it can have a profound impact on the health, performance, consistency, and durability of athletes in every sport.

Mike, James and I have worked in every setting – professional and collegiate sports, private sports training facilities, general fitness clients, etc. – and there are strategies shared in the OAP videos that can be applied in all of these environments.

Increase your “Range”

Second, I strongly believe in the importance of having a range of solutions for different problems.

Athletes and training clients don’t always respond to the same strategies in the same way, and between individual preferences and logistical constraints, if you only have one tool – it’s likely you’ll run into situations where you can’t use it.

By spanning assessment, sports science, recovery interventions, program design, and nutrition/supplementation, OAP provides complimentary solutions to help facilitate the optimal response, despite different situational constraints.

For example, athletes at all levels suffer from depleted energy at some point throughout the season. This can result from:

  • Insufficient or inappropriate preparation
  • Detraining throughout the season
  • Excessive workload
  • Misguided dietary strategy
  • Suboptimal sleep
  • Inadequate or poor use of recovery strategies

Depending on the situation, some of these areas may be more realistic to improve than others, so having a process to identify what is contributing to the athlete’s lack of energy and solutions to address each limiting factor will allow you to always make an impact.

Optimizing Adaptation & Performance discusses each of the above points in detail, and provides different strategies to address the same problem.
