Don't Miss The Best Clinic Of The Year

In 2015 in the Journal of Medicine Science and Sport researchers found that if you suffer a concussion the risk of a lower body injury is twice as great for months, a year or even longer.  In 2016 this information was once again reiterated in the American Journal of Sports Medicine.

On June 25th and June 27th Kim Wood, the NFL's first full time strength coach provides a clinic that is designed to share techniques that will reduce sub-concussive forces that can cause head and neck injuries. Also, the clinic provides the most current research and newest techniques to train the head, neck and jaw from a wide array of professional coaches. 

It will be held in Pallet 23 Event Space, 3932 Spring Grove in Cincinnati. Pre-registration on footballstrength.com. The clinic begins Friday, June 24th at 7 p.m. and Saturday June 25th at 9 a.m. The cost is $25 which includes both sessions.

Register now: space is limited.

Best And Most Important Clinic Of The Year

In 1931 Paul Brown was the head coach of the football powerhouse Massillon High School in Massillon, Ohio. He lost only 10 games in eleven seasons and was hired as the head football coach at Ohio State University, where in 1942 his team won the National Championship. Paul Brown followed this by winning three NFL Championships as the coach of the Cleveland Browns.  Brown then co-founded the Cincinnati Bengals and became their head coach in 1968. His storied career included inventing the face mask, developing the taxi squad, running the draw play and installing a radio transmitter in the quarterbacks helmet. In 1975 Paul Brown made a lasting impact on the physical development of athletes, hiring Kim Wood as the NFL's first full-time strength coach. 

Kim Wood maintained the position for 29 years and his influence on the exercise world is unparalleled. Kim has built world leading companies, influenced equipment design and program implementation, he continues to fight performance enhancing drugs and has preserved the history of weight training with his vast collection. Wood's philosophy as a coach was effective simple and direct, "Prepare each athlete for the rigors of the game and get the most out of every repetition that is done."

Each year Kim runs America's best Strength Clinic

In 2015 in the Journal of Medicine Science and Sport researchers found that if you suffer a concussion the risk of a lower body injury is twice as great for months, a year or even longer.  In 2016 this information was once again reiterated in the American Journal of Sports Medicine. The clinic is designed to provide and share techniques that will reduce sub-concussive forces that can cause head and neck injuries and thus reduce the risk of injury throughout the entire body.  Also, the clinic provides the most current research and new techniques to train the head, neck and jaw from a wide array of professional coaches. 

The clinic is important enough that professional football players, major college strength coaches and writers from Sports Illustrated, ESPN Magazine, NFL.com and the local newspapers have all attended.

It will be held in Pallet 23 Event Space, 3932 Spring Grove in Cincinnati. Pre-registration on footballstrength.com. The clinic begins Friday, June 24th at 7 p.m. and Saturday June 25th at 9 a.m. The cost is $25 which includes both sessions.
