Midwest Performance Enhancement Seminar

Friends and I at the Midwest Performance Enhancement Seminar (I'm on the far right)

I recently posted an article that Tony Gentilcore shared on facebook, and wrote a guest article for Eric Cressey‘s blog. Since then several thousand of you have clicked your way through to my site. Welcome! And thanks to Eric and Tony!

Here’s a brief introduction for people who are new to the blog:

I graduated this August with a degree in Kinesiology and a certificate in Exercise Nutrition from Humboldt State University. Earlier this month I passed my NSCA-Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) exam and have been USAW olympic lifting certified since 2008. I ran the Track and Field Decathlon (ten sprinting, jumping, and throwing events) at HSU. My studies heavily focused on how nutrition and exercise impact hormonal status and how we can use nutrition to look, feel, and perform better. I’ve been reading about and testing nutrition information since about 2006. I finished my course work in May of this year and immediately moved to the east coast to intern at Cressey Performance, where I spend three months working in the gym for 50 hours a week with high school, college, and elite athletes.

Here’s a video of me lifting a few months ago. I’ve put on over 24 pounds of lean mass since then while training at Cressey Performance; I will write about this soon.

At the end of August, I moved back to California where I’m continuing my nutrition practice, Evolutionary Health Systems, and designing nutrition and exercise programming for athletes, students, and online distance clients. You can read about my services here.

This is my blog where you can contact me and read my thoughts on nutrition, exercise, sports, and whatever else is on my mind.

Here are some of my most popular pages:

Welcome and thanks to Tony and Eric!

    Great Blog Tyler! I'm very happy to see someone with your background and knowledge join Eric and Tony. I think more sports performance centers need someone like you to bridge the gap between quality training and quality nutrition.
