my favorite sites

Alright. I saved a ton of my old bookmarks from high school a couple weeks ago and now I'm going to put up a list of websites I use now and don't want to lose. This list doesn't include things like ESPN which I won't forget.

cross training for football

I started building a cross training program for high school football players that includes
joining the wrestling team.

Wrestling is a great way to get better at tackling, improve body control, and strength. After practice, lose the wrestling shoes (they cause shin splints) and wear running shoes. The cardio done on high school wrestling teams is generally much more grueling than a football practice's conditioning.

Circuit training for wrestling workouts are key. They generate fast twitch muscle fiber simulate wrestling and football well. Jumping rope, tire sprints, and cartwheels are other ways to gain more body control and foot speed. Don't forget to wear headgear when you're wrestling - you don't want to damage your ears.

parenting classes at the u

I've been researching classes at the U of M for the spring semester and think it would be fun to focus on something related to children and parenting.

I recently read an article on cutting and how the children who do it are constantly wrestling with the urge to keep doing it.

Another element of parenting I would like to learn more about is dealing with anorexia. I had a relative deal with this for 12 years of her life and getting to understand the disease would be quite enlightening.

my old computer

My computer has finally died. Luckily I saved all of the bookmarks, photos, and videos off of it before it completely locked up!

fall is here

Im pretty excited to start to break out sweatshirts again. I'm not ready to trade in my shoes for snow boots yet, but fall is welcome to join us! I am also excited for the high school wrestling season to start. My dad's company designed wrestling singlets and uniforms for several teams this season to match their headgear.

Favorite things to do in the fall: backyard football, wrestling, and campfires.

Adidas Combat Speed 3 New Color

The Combat Speed will be coming in at least one additional color in 2011. We expect the color to be very similar to the old school blue/yellow, but who knows.

We're pretty excited to see what they come out with for the 2011 Combat Speed wrestling shoes!

playing video games

I've been playing a lot of Madden 11 online lately with the speaker headgear. They've added a lot of new features and technique videos to the game along with a great career mode.

Its definitely my favorite Madden of all time.

up at the cabin

Up relaxing at the cabin for the weekend. This is what it looks like in the winter.

This time of year is more fun being outdoors, but I can't resist a good fire at the cabin. Just kick off your shoes and warm up your feet by a fire!

Try making a grilled cheese sandwich over a fire! Just grab some bread, cheese singlets, and a fire friendly pan!

como zoo

Had a great day today. Wonderful weather and went to Como Park, it was super. My favorite exhibit has to be the monkeys, followed closely by the lion. I love how the monkeys wrestle around with each other.

2010 Super 32
