Learn OLY From The Pros


Strength in Conditioning for Tuesday, April 1, 2014

The Olympic Lifts are some of the most complex, dynamic movements we do here at SICFIT Scottsdale. We program them because of their fantastic ability to train nearly every marker of physical fitness: strength, agility, speed, power, coordination, flexibility, balance. You name it, the Clean & Jerk and Snatch can help you get it. This is why SICFIT Scottsdale requires all of our coaches to learn from the pros, so they can then pass along their knowledge to you! If you want to learn the ins and outs of these lifts to further your coaching career or simply your knowledge as an athlete, you definitely want to sign up for this weekend’s USAW Sports Performance Coaching Certification on 4/5 and 4/6.

Strength in Conditioning for Friday, March 28, 2014

For all the people who said you couldn’t do it. For all the times you actually believed them. For all the limitations and low expectations imposed upon you from the outside world. For all the times those messages became real. For all the obstacles you thought were too great, and for all the times you made it to the other side. For all the times you have surprised yourself  and for all the times you have exceeded you’re expectations. When  you show up to SICFIT Scottsdale, you show up with all of this. And every time you don’t quit, you win. Show up. Don’t Quit. SICFIT Scottsdale.

Exercise of the Week

“All exercises require progressions and regressions.  This is the most basic exercise for integrating core stability, breathing, and abdominal function.  Great for improving overhead range of motion, strength in the bottom of the squat, and developing the bodies inherent  ‘weight-belt’ – the diaphragm stabilizing L4/5 from the inside out.” – Kevin Kula of FlexibilityRx

Founded in 2004, the Pat Tillman Foundation invests in military veterans and their spouses through educational scholarships – building a diverse community of leaders committed to service to others. While the story of Pat’s death may have been the most publicized in the War on Terror, it is Pat’s life, principles and service that are his true legacy. Pat’s family and friends started the Pat Tillman Foundation to carry forward that legacy by giving military veterans and spouses who embody those principles the educational tools and support to reach their fullest potential as leaders, no matter how they choose to serve.
