    Should We Screen for Heart Disease Before Athletics?
      Health SOURCE
    Everyday Health By T. Jared Bunch, MD Published Sep 30, 2014

    Sudden deaths among young people who complete in athletics are terrible and tragic events. In the October 2014 issue of the journal JACC, many of the world experts in this area released a consensus statement to provide guidelines on when to screen for heart disease, in order to avoid this tragedy.

    Fortunately, such events are rare. However, they are devastating and are often covered broadly in the news. Unfortunately, sudden death can occur at any time and often without warning even after years of athletic participation. As a parent of children participating in sports, these news reports occur too often and touch me on a personal level. I suspect they do most who read them.

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Danny Berger. Danny came from a family of parents and siblings who all played college athletics. He grew up as an exceptional athlete and excelled at basketball. At over six feet six inches tall, he was highly recruited to play college basketball. He played at the collegiate level for two years and improved yearly in all phases of the game. He entered his junior year with anticipation to contribute significantly to a Utah State University (USU) basketball team that perennially wins over 20 games a year.

    Then the unspeakable happened.......

    Hey, It's Halloween day! Are you doing anything special today?

    Tonight, I'm going to my sister's place. My mom will her special halloween dish and then, we're going trick or treat with all the kids (i got 6 nieces and nephews under the age of 9) while my mom stays behind and opens the door and gives treats to little monsters and princesses. It's our family tradition. I'm really looking forward to it. It's always fun!

    Let's talk about softball training for a minute. I don't want to ''scare'' you but if you're not doing any core training, you're shooting yourself in the foot.

    I had the chance to work...

      Inspiration SOURCE
    Stacie Mahoe

    Ever since my family started doing CrossFit we’ve met a lot of great people, many of whom we have as friends on facebook. Because of that, as you can imagine, I see quite a bit of fitness related posts in my facebook newsfeed.

    One day I came across an image sharing 9 rules for the gym. I decided to come up with my own list of rules for the diamond. Hope you like them. Enjoy…

    Jen Schro Catching: The First Drill
      Catchers SOURCE
    Jen Schro Catching

    The first drill in last week's circuit was a double block with a plank hold. Here, I wanted to mix quickness, efficiency & strength.
    We tried something new at lessons where EVERY stations was doing the same drill (there were 3 other stations like this), and then when we rotated we switched drills. Each stations had 2 drills, a catching drill & a strength & conditioning drill.

    What to Eat Between A Doubleheader

    The title of this post is “What to Eat Between A Doubleheader”; however, it is crucial to have a 24-hour plan in place to maximize your between game meal. With that said, here is a sample of what to eat and when to eat it on a day that you have a doubleheader. Let’s just say you have games on Saturday at 11am and 2pm.

    Friday night: Be sure to have a well balanced dinner including roughly 40% slow-digesting carbohydrates, 40% protein, and 20% fat plus drink plenty of water. Athletes should be drinking.....
