Part 1 of 2: The Importance of Upper and Lower Dissociation

Dissociation is a topic that often gets overlooked with performance training. Dissociation is different joints or body segments moving separate of each other in a sequential fashion. It is best developed through fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills during one's youth. However injuries, early specialization, over zealous coaching, etc. can all lead to improper development of dissociation. Here is part 1 that is focused on dissociation of the hips and lower body.

The Other Side:
I am so excited to share this next video. The song below, California Sunrise by Dirty Gold, is performed by 3 of my athletes at Pacific Ridge School. They invited the faculty of our school to come witness their first performance in San Diego and I was absolutely in awe of how good their music was. They have finished the first EP, and below is a link where you can buy their single (it should be on iTunes shortly). They have signed to a small label and are looking to get much bigger. I love getting to know what the kids do outside of their sport. It allows for better communication, trust, and its just fun to see how talented these kids really are.

Picture at their first show!
