Episode 9: Unique Training Methods That Rapidly Develop Athletes

Ever anywhere I've Been ever get J splits and track so we Jump rope so much oh yeah jump rope Was the jump rope that's something You've always done that that that is is Different than almost every I have not Seen it at any other program that I've Been at the way they although Joe clous Um I think brought it to Old Japan a lot I remember when he was doing it because He got obviously got it from you um but You're right rope because that those are Like see those are things and by the way They don't do in a gym class anymore no Absolutely Not he does in gy Class what do you do in gym class uh we Sit in a squad I don't know run around Like do you learn skills you jump rope No don't do my son jump rope no okay uh Um do you guys play tag situps no can You do a push-up I had to teach my kid How to do push-ups because in the old Days we used to do push-ups in they they Don't do push-ups in gym class they Don't do sit-ups in gym class they don't Do I mean they do almost nothing it's Pretty funny and which actually Irritates your kid because he wants to Go and compete and do that stuff Push-ups he'll do listen we used to put Together AP gym class they should it's The only course that's not tracked it's Like hey let's go we'll go AP gym We'll

All compete everybody else go over there And and I don't know well this is a side Discussion but the two most important uh Classes and you you used to te I I think Derek used to be the teacher of this too Is to me but is the piano and what else Dave the piano else besides the piano um And and singing voice uh uh is history And physical education okay and Obviously math we I get all that I get The Lang I get why those are important I I get that stuff but history knowing Where you've been where you come from Where you where maybe you're going and Then and then uh uh physical education Which is basically gone by the boards uh New Jersey maybe in Illinois or like the Last two states in America that maybe Even have it as a requirement but um uh Physical education how to physically be Able to handle Yourself be able to develop Self-esteem from from being stronger and I'm not talking I'm not even talking About sports I'm talking about like May How how many how many have a peg board There's nobody there's nobody that goes I mean I don't know if you still go to Gym ear early you do but there's no Better feeling I I think when you go to Workout and you come out of there and How you feel you know so um and and you Feel better about yourself but those are The things that it's funny because we

Try to like in our society like move Away from these things yeah I don't know I mean and there's so much data on that The guy who wrote the guy who wrote the Book out in naville Illinois did the Whole study it's a great study in terms Of what they did with their kids before School in a zero period and how they're Mathematical and and and and and English Scores went through it's a great book It's called Uh spark okay yeah it's Called spark and and you can actually if You don't want to read the book they Give great presentations on YouTube on It with that author all right and I try To sell it to everybody and I got a Better chance of seeing God than I'm Accepting that but you know I just think It's I think it's kind of important that We do these things you know I mean it's Funny you can look at the videos of like Jim class from 1970 or 1960 right when They're back and they're do push-ups Jumping jacks all this stuff and now you Look at it it's like what's what what is That what are we doing what are we do And to think this all started like with The run and shoot you know I Mean it's all I got left yeah yeah so I Mean look I I I I I think those things Are again we talked about it you know Scrubbing roster finding your kids in The hallway I mean I'm not in the Classroom anymore because I retired as a

History teacher right that's what you Know and I think that's affected us Adversely very much in terms of getting Kids out and uh you're not in the like You're not no no and you know getting Around there it was funny because when I Finished the two- week uh stint as the Leave replacement the kids said wow you Know you you should really come back Full-time and I said look when I Finished teaching there was nobody in The room because it was covid it was That 2021 school year yes and nobody was Coming to school no right and because They didn't want to get banged Especially athlete they didn't want to Get banged with the with the positive Right so or being around somebody so and That's not even a political thing it's The kids kind of figured out oh no no The kids played the system they knew Exactly what to do that's right and they Were like they weren't coming back and Uh I you know so I kind of finished the Empty classroom so I guess it kind of Kind of scratched that itch you know Seeing kids again yeah but they said you Should really come back I was like I Know I still got it but they they said Why don't you come back I Said no I said I didn't have to correct Any papers this is great yeah I could I Just committ here teach history and you
