Expand Your Comfort Zones for Greater Success in Sports and Life

Dehydration and Workout: Tired & Unmotivated to Practice?

Dehydration and workout motivation, or rather “unmotivation”, go hand in hand. If there is a bathroom in close proximity, it takes about 2 minutes to go pee-pee. It doesn’t seem so much, but if you have to go every hour and in situations where a pee-pee break may seem less appropriate or disturbing to your surroundings—school class, business meeting, middle […]


Tight Hip-Flexors, Self-Myofascial Release and Back Pain

Tight hip-flexors are a major problem for any athlete or fitness enthusiast. Shortened and tight hip-flexors inhibit the gluteus muscles (booty) to fire correctly and your movement on the tennis court is less powerful and efficient. When your glutes don’t work how they should, other muscle groups need to compensate and eventually become overloaded. After some time of this dysfunction, […]

Improve your Tennis Swing Power and Control

Every tennis player wishes to hit harder and with more control. To improve your tennis swing power and control at the same time is not that simple. Sometimes the player just hits hard… and harder… and the hardest… but “muscling” the ball too much. There is no looseness in his swing. The more tightness, the less control. So you may […]

Vegan Diet Instead of Low Glycemic Index Diets

Most of us are familiar with the glycemic index, and many of us believe that it is important to eat low glycemic index foods. A fewer of us are familiar with Dr. David Jenkins (who is like a Michael Jordan in the nutritional science world). Dr. Jenkins of the University of Toronto invented the glycemic index back in 1981, in […]


5 Exercises to Heal your Wrists and Elbows

Our wrists and elbows are such small parts of our bodies that we often forget how troublesome they can be when we get occasional twinges and aches. If left untreated and without conscious care, the little twinges can gradually turn into dull aches or even more intense bursts of uncomfortable pain. We are bothered when we do the simplest, everyday […]

How Daily Training Will Make you an Amazing Athlete

Personally, I don’t know “moderation” in almost everything I do—in life or exercise, I go for it full speed, full commitment, and full “overdoing” it. I have always believed that pushing my limits will make me figure out how far I can go and ultimately make me better. I don’t apply this philosophy to training of my clients, because I […]


The Glute Bridge: The Simplest and Fastest Way to Athletic Performance
