I feel like I’m constantly talking about the little things… Whether it’s in these messages, videos, in person, and even in my programs.

Things like movement efficiency,

Corrective stretching,
Core Work,

These things are small, and as such, they are EASILY overlooked (especially by an unfocused athlete)…

But neglecting them has a compounding effect.

Let’s say, you have naturally tight quads that you need to stretch, but you just don’t take the time to stretch them.

You keep training, Squats, Lunges, Box jumps.

Pretty soon, your knees start hurting.

Ahhh my knees hurt. It’s fine, I’ll just train through it. It’ll probably go away soon.

But it doesn’t. Then one day you go play some pick up sports and you feel your hip, knee, back or ankle go out. Now you are dealing with a REAL Injury.

You’re on your stomach, pounding the ground.

Out 6-8 weeks or worse…. Longer..

It’s this kind of stuff that’s preventable,

But only by doing the small things.

And these small things can compound into performance enhancement if you do them when you’re supposed to. It’s the small things that add up to 1-3% improvements

If you stretch and mobilize your hips,

That extra range of motion could give you a couple inches on your vert,

Or shave some time off your 40.

Working your core with intent and focus could be the difference between a homer and a flyout.

My point is, do the little things today, not when some crappy incident sparks a panic in your chest.
