Off-season Focus Part 1

Though almost all beach volleyball players hate winter, these frigid months are a prefect time to focus on injury prevention, expanding functional range of motion, and increasing explosive power in the gym. Taking full advantage of the offseason will allow you to excel when you return to the court in the spring.

Some athletes neglect their offseason training regime because of fear of injury, or perhaps they simply lack the knowledge of which exercises will benefit their game the most. However, with informed coaching and proper movement patterns, all athletes can benefit from offseason resistance training.

Beaches: Not Just for Relaxing

     Sand training is used by a variety of athletes including, basketball, American football, volleyball, rugby, tennis and, of course, beach volleyball. There are several reasons behind the use of sand training for cross training for specific sports as each sport deals with different forms of athleticism, however, there are many similarities across all sports as well that will be discussed first.

     Similarities across all sports include work threshold, cardiovascular endurance, and muscular endurance pertaining mostly to the lower limbs.

Volleyball: The Defensive Presence - Part 3 of 3

(Cont'd) Maybe you won’t get a dig, but as a defensive player you can’t afford to let the chance at a dig slip away. You have tobelievethat you are going to get every ball, every dig is yours, no matter where it is on the court, that a missed ball is more of an anomaly than actually getting the dig is. Hit the floor for everything and never give up on the ball. All great sports plays happened because someone took a chance somewhere, so always give yourself that chance. You owe it to yourself and to your team to try and make that play.

The Joseph Kidawski Orchestra

Typically, my musings on this blog are reserved for lifestyle happenings related to sport of exercise. However, I would like to share another important aspect of my own lifestyle, that of a professional musician. This episode retells the tale of the last weekend in Boston for my long time artistic partner, partner in crime, and one of my best friends, Joe Kidawski. 

HordoN HEALTH's staff and ownership believes in a holistic lifestyle, not herbs and crystals, though we're not opposed to holistic healing or lifestyles, but treating each person's life as a whole.

Let the Season Begin!

OK, sports fans, European soccer leagues are in full swing! The English Premier League is off to a very interesting start with some unexpected teams sitting higher, and some lower, then one might guess. Chelsea is playing the best ball in the league so far, sitting at the top if the table even without Frank Lampard (who was traded to Manchester City). Manchester United and Liverpool’s performances have both been below the standard of play we’re used to expecting, but we do have plenty of season left.
