Medical Doctor to Strength & Conditioning: Unlearning to Learn

Written by Sugandhat Bharti Most of the sports scientists and strength & conditioning coaches reading this might have started with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology, then perhaps moved on to a higher education in the same area.  Perhaps some even transitioned to an allied health, or even medicine for a career.  I did the opposite. I was a medical doctor. I completed my degree in medicine from India, however, while practicing I had an urge to do more and interact with patients differently.  I had the urge to meet patients where they were rather than just having them see me [...]

Are Your Cleans Doing What They Are Supposed to do?

Written by Leo Totten, MS, USAW 5 Whether your sport is powerlifting, strongman, football or any other “strength” sport, the power clean should be part of your workout plan.  Obviously, the major emphasis of your training should be whatever discipline you are participating in, but including power cleans at the right time can enhance the performance in any strength sport. When choosing the exercises to be put into your program, there are two primary considerations to keep in mind.  Does the exercise fit a need or purpose and are the athletes able to perform the exercise correctly so it actually [...]

Navigating Different Sporting Cultures

Written by Joe Vecchione Many strength & conditioning (S&C) coaches will work with a variety of sports in their career spanning different ages and levels. Through these experiences, we quickly realize that each sport and level bring a diverse set of S&C deliverables and interpersonal dynamics to navigate. The training routines and roles of the S&C coach have evolved within a deep-rooted culture that spans decades.  I am referring to the meta culture of a sport that transcends the team or program we work with creates the common threads that make up the fabric of a sport environment at large.

Strength & Conditioning Resources for Femoroacetabular Impingement

Written by Michael Silvestri Introduction & What is FAI As strength and conditioning professionals, part of the scope of practice is to work with athletes to manage and mitigate the risk of injury in sport. Having an athlete injured, or being an injured athlete is not a positive experience, as this would require the athlete to miss time away from their given sport. Although not all injuries can be prevented through training – particularly contact-related injuries – there are non-contact and overuse related injuries that strength and conditioning professionals should be aware of and work towards mitigating non-contact and overuse [...]

Remote Coaching Part 1: What to Use to Connect with Athletes?

As a coach, I have used multiple methods to track training programs and stay connected with the athletes I work with. When I first started coaching, remote coaching involved using either a phone or a fax machine.  My business partner and I recognized the challenge of programming and coaching for the athletes we worked with and approached a grad student at U of T to help design a program that enabled us to create, monitor and track programs electronically.  There were challenges, glitches, and growing pains, especially for our athletes who lived and raced in different countries. Although there were [...]

Over 30 Years and Still Coaching: Part 2

CSCA Founder and Inaugural President Sheldon Persad CSCA - How did you get started in the industry? SP - My passion has been coaching since I was in grade school. My first paid opportunity came in the mid-1980s as a result of one of my teachers (Doug Quarrington) having faith in me and seeing something in me I did not see in myself. Although he was a teacher, he had a part-time job as the convenor of a youth basketball league. At the last minute, just before the regular season started, one of the coaches had to drop out.  He [...]

Olympian Bill Crothers’ Connection with Chris Chapman and Derek Virgo

“Healthy active kids become healthy active adults.”  This quotation is from former school trustee and Olympic medalist Bill Crothers, who was instrumental in creating a public school in Markham Ontario that supports student-athletes like no other. Supporting the students includes having a full-time S&C coach as part of the faculty. I met with Mr. Crothers over hot chocolate to discuss the genesis of the high school named in his honour, Bill Crothers Secondary School (BCSS).

About the Canadian Strength and Conditioning Association

BRIEF HISTORY Conversations about the formation of a Canadian S&C Association have been on-going in pockets across Canada for over 20 years. On April 4, 2013 we were close. However, debates centred around what the association’s focus should be, without conclusion. Nevertheless, there is a debt of gratitude that needs to be expressed to many individuals for their outstanding work and time devoted in attempting to get an association off the ground at that April 4th meeting in Toronto. In attendance at that meeting were practitioners who worked in the universities, colleges, public sector, private sector, amateur high-performance sport and [...]
