Greetings,

   Im a new comer to this site after being a lifelong physical culturalist. I have always been intriuged by increasing athletic performances in relation to recruiting more muscle fibers (since humans seem to be able to only access 50% or so),  primal nutrition, and differences in race on athletic ability and genetic potential.

  I am an athlete first and foremost and recently returned from a month long trip at API (Athletes Performance Institute) where I re invigerated  my desire to keep pushing the envelope instead of just of maintaining what I have to keep collecting a paycheck until Im to old.

  I was immediately drawn to this site due to it openness and freedom of information, I feel I may be able to contribute in the areas of nutrition and sprinting specifically ( as I was fortunate to have access and interaction/training with multiple Sprinters from west Africa).

 Ive never tried to slam dunk, just always assumed I could not, after snooping around on this site I got the itch to try and found that I can actually dunk a tennis ball with either hand. I hope to start implementing some of the routines found on here to upgrade the size of the balls Im using.

Where'd you meet the sprinters from west Africa and what involvement did you have with them?

Always good to see new members on this site. Sometimes you get heated debates but for the most part everybody on here is pretty chill.

I met the West Africans (two of them) on a cross training trip in San Diego. Much of what I did with them involved what I suppose you'd call patterns of over-reaching sprinting. Which I later experimented with incorporating stimulation just prior to the sprint.  Interestingly they both showed up with a surprising amount of muscle mass despite claiming having almost never touching weights.  Other things that surprised me was how inflexible one of them in particular was.

Thanks, Im a fan of your work. My experience at API was good however I would say that any amount of time spent at API should be immediately  followed up with a serious d-load week. Im of the opinion that corrective movement session, followed by a 1.5 hour Olympic Lifting based workout, followed by cold tub, followed by movement and turf agility drills (1.5 hours), followed by some type of metabolic conditioning (within  your pre determined VO2 "zone") followed by cold tub, is overtraining.

Yet I do understand that the clientele  are mostly agents of athletes or teams who want to quickly prepare an athlete who may have been  sedentary do to injury, free agency, or get them ready for a draft.  They do a good job of locating whatever weakness you have and trying to train your weakness (core stability, inflexibility, injury recovery, power symmetry etc.)

A few of my constructive criticisms is obviously the day in, day out volume of work and its ability to cause a neurologically overtrained state. (for which cold tub contrasts, foam roller therapy, and physical therapy do almost nothing to help). I didn't care for the constantly trying to shove EAS products down your throat (every 3 hours they have a protein shake with your name on it), as Im a big fan of just eating real food.

Overall it was good training, they're very knowledgable and accommodating, just be ready to do work. Some people don't like individual attention from strength coaches on every little thing they do, I found it easier to stay motivated that way. They also had a program called the Eagle, or Fallen Eagle program ( i can't remember the name now) for these special forces guys, that had been blown up or shot in the line of duty.  They take these guys all full of scars, shrapnel and injuries over a few months they send them back to work stronger, faster and leaner.  I give  mad respect to API for running a program like that to true warriors.

That's really cool. Sounds like they really pay attention to your needs, almost to the point of overwork though. I wouldn't mind the protein shake, lol. Was there a fee for your stay with API or were you part of a program? Just curious.
