    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Exercise Prescription

Recently I was able to dig into my Exercise Physiology education from undergrad and write up an exercise program for the high school individual I workout with. He is in the transition period between hockey and baseball and wanted to start working out in the weight room to get prepared for baseball and begin strength training for overall health benefits. We sat down and set goals and I developed a program specifically for him. Early on we focused a lot on mobility because his was very poor. It was limiting the range of motion (ROM) and overall technique of most of his lifts (i.e. squats, lunges, RDL’s). We started off with body weight and are now adding on weight since his form has improved. His knowledge of the weight room and his understanding of why he is doing certain lifts is increasing every time we are in the gym.

I’m really proud of where is now compared to where he was day 1. He has been a great example of “kaizen” – as we call it in the baseball program – getting better in small increments every day.
