Master your craft
The squat and all it’s variations are the cornerstone of a long term athletic development program
However, remember it’s an “add on” with regards to all things athleticism. Much like how an engine upgrade in a car is pointless if you can’t drive spending all your energy on building strength if you can’t move is also pointless .
Understand where each individual is in the training life and train accordingly .
Leave no weakness

Anthony Smith, Khalil Rountree offer to face Jimi Manuwa at UFC Sao Paulo, but neither of them are Brazilian
After news broke that Glover Teixeira had been forced out of his Light Heavyweight showdown against Jimi Manuwa, which was set to headline UFC Fight Night 137 on Sept. 22, 2018 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, volunteers to step in and fill the void started popping up.
Chief among them were Khalil Rountree and Anthony Smith, who each said they’d be up for the challenge against “Poster Boy.” The problem, according to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, is that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is looking for a Brazilian fighter to headline the bout in Sao Paulo.
Smith is fresh off a first-round destruction of Mauricio Rua at UFC Fight Night 134 last month (see it), his second straight win over a former UFC 205-pound champion (the other being Rashad Evans). After his win, the “Lionheart” called for a title fight against Daniel Cormier, but since neither “DC” or UFC took it to heart, Smith has to look elsewhere.
As for Rountree, he has won three of four and was last seen knocking out Gokhan Saki in the very first round at UFC 226 last July (recap). While the offers from both men are commendable, Manuwa is coming off two straight losses, so it could be somewhat of a high risk, low reward situation, as the British brawler does have the one-punch knockout power to get the job done.
In an interesting twist, Thiago Santos revealed he offered to face Manuwa, and though it would’ve made the promotion happy, “Poster Boy” apparently turned down the fight.
#2003 - An 18-year-old @Cristiano Ronaldo makes his debut for @ManchesterUnited and the @PremierLeague in a 4–0 home victory over Bolton Wanderers @officialbwfc. He received a standing ovation when he came on as a 60th-minute substitute for Nicky Butt. His performance earned praise from George Best, who hailed it as "undoubtedly the most exciting debut" he had ever seen. -
#2008 - In the Olympic 100 m final, @UsainBolt broke new ground, winning in 9.69 s (unofficially 9.683 s) with a reaction time of 0.165 s. This was an improvement upon his own world record, and he was well ahead of second-place finisher Richard Thompson, who finished in 9.89 s. Not only was the record set without a favourable wind (+0.0 m/s), but he also visibly slowed down to celebrate before he finished and his shoelace was untied.
#2015 - @JasonDayOfficial wins the @PGAChampionship setting major championship record of 20-under-par; beats Jordan Spieth by 3 strokes. Day produced an exceptional performance shooting rounds of 68, 67, 66 and 67. Day also set a new record that week becoming the first player in history to finish at 20-under-par in a major.
"They’re so fast!" U.S. Olympic Champion Katie Ledecky said this week after holding a swimming clinic for young Japanese swimmers at a pool in Tokyo’s Setagaya Ward, which has been designated “Home Town USA” for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Swimmers ranging in age from elementary to high school students cheered and listened to @kledecky, an ECA @sportsdiplomacy Sports Envoy, give tips on technique, mental preparedness, and her dedication to swimming while growing up at the Nation’s Capital Swim Club near Washington, D.C.
