Sports specialization trend costs teens, schools
The San Francisco Chronicle
Of the 54 football players at Serra-San Mateo in California, 39 play another sport. Head coach Patrick Walsh doesn't like that. He wishes more of them would play a second sport. "I hate specialization," he said. "It makes no sense, in my opinion." The trend toward specialization in youth sports, in which athletes play one sport year-round for expensive travel and club teams, has had a significant impact on traditional high school programs, which have declined in popularity and participation.

Concussion laws help, but may be only partial solution
The Patriot Ledger
In just five years, 49 states have passed laws to raise awareness about concussions and ensure proper treatment of head injuries in young athletes. The rapid spread of "return-to-play" laws came after long-term brain damage was revealed in several former National Football League players, raising alarm at the local level that young athletes needed more protection and care in dealing with concussions. Experts believe the new laws, which focus on education, are just a first step, as there are no penalties in place to ensure their effectiveness.

    How should in-season nutrition differ from off-season nutrition?
    Q: Should the foods I eat during the season be different from what I eat in the off-season?

    A: The answer depends on the type of athlete you are and your goals for the off-season. In general, you should eat a carbohydrate-rich diet during the season. But during the off-season, when you are less active, you may want to reduce the proportion of carbohydrates and increase protein intake — although carbs should still be a significant component of your diet year round.

We also need to train our core with ab workouts. If solid ab workouts are neglected, you may have strong shoulders, but pressing large weight overhead will result in failure because your midsection strength is insufficient. Here is an intense five-part ab workout that will bring your core up to par and increase all of your main lifts.
