Rob Oshinskie on Single-Leg Training, Deceleration and Sports Performance

Rob Oshinskie is the owner of Victory Sport and Fitness in State College, Pennsylvania. I was originally put on to Rob’s work via our mutual friend and awesome human being Lee Taft, so when Lee gave me the seal of approval I knew I had to get Rob on.

In this show, Rob and I talk about why he’s such a big proponent of single-leg training, his approach and philosophy on force absorption and deceleration, and what really disturbs him about young athlete development.

It takes us a few minutes to get rolling, but I promise the content in this show is gold.

Show Outline

Here’s a brief overview of what we covered in this week’s show:

  • How Rob got started in the world of physical preparation.
  • His Big Rocks, and the key tenets of his philosophy.
  • The biggest mistake he made as a young coach and entrepreneur.
  • What Rob feels is the biggest issue with regards to young athlete development today.
  • Force absorption and deceleration: Why it’s important, and how he implements it
  • How to build a better squat by unlocking the calves.
  • The BIG Question.
  • A fun lightning round where we discuss his greatest accomplishment as a coach, the books he’s reading right now, and the coach he’d choose to spend a day with.
