In episode 58 we cover a variety of topics to get you on track for your next OCR.  It's the start of the year and the question of New Year's Resolutions always comes up.  Are they a good thing or a waste of time?  In this episode I share why you absolutely should set a resolution.  But you need to do it the right way.

In the Inside Mike's Mind segment, I discuss one of my favorite topics, Strength Training.  While most are probably performing some type of strenght training in their program, there are a number of aspects that must be included for a complete strength program.  See if you are missing any of these vital elements.

In the Research Review, I discuss the importance of identifying asymmetries.  I review a study that looked how differences in left and right quadricep strength was used to predict knee injuries.  This is an incredibly important topic to understand and implement in your training plan.

Finally in our Coaches Corner, I have on Coach Q.  I met Coach Q a few years back when we were going through the SGX certification.  He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in a varitey of different fitness avenues.  Q followed a similar path that many find themselves on.  Starting as a skinny guy he turned to body building.  Then started to see the damage that excessive training could do to the body he started to focus on better movement quality and better overall health.

He uses his own experience and knowledge to help others learn to treat their body's better.  We get into his story plus some of the common practices he is using with his clients for improving mobility, rehab, and training.
