Power In today's Movement post- I want to give some pointers on how to start incorporating some low level POWER work into your training routines. Everyone knows the benefits of conditioning and strength work, but a piece that often gets left out is power. Power can be defined as "work per unit of time" in Science and Practice of Strength Training. Another way to think of it is expressing force development in an explosive manner. To achieve this- we have to blend strength a
Today is all about MOVEMENT, specifically the benefits associated with being aerobically fit. I'm assuming a lot of people reading this love to crush weights, push there bodies hard with some heavy duty intervals (HIIT), and may occasionally forget their long run or their 5k row they had scheduled. I've been there plenty of times of myself, however recently have been trying to incorporate more low and high intensity aerobic work into my training week for a few reasons... 1.
Big Points: -New twist on old progressions -Nailing the SLRDL set up everytime -Some of the best cues I've seen work for clients The SLRDL is a great movement for gen pop and athletes alike. The movement can be used to train balance, unilateral hinging strength, unilateral anti-rotation of the core (in all the variations shown), and just over total body kinesthetic awareness. However, this blog post was spurred from recently seeing a lot of sub par SLRDL being performed (to
In this article I detail a few different aspects of power. First I talk about what the force-velocity curve is, the benefits of training based on the curve, and how to train all along the spectrum. Next I talk about and how training power will increase performance and decrease injury potential. Finally I relate all of this back to how incorporating power into an everyday person's program will benefit them. This article was originally posted on my buddy Jesse McMeekin's site
Here are two links to articles I wrote for James Cerbie over at Rebel Performance on Cal Dietz's Triphasic Training book a few years ago. Cal's book is still a personal favorite of mine. He is incredibly smart and breaks down complex ideas and methods into manageable portions for coaches to implement into their own system (or run with his). I love implementing his tempo style blocks into my own programming for my athletes. Check out the articles as well as James' site and l
