Quick video with some coaching points on the barbell RDL. These pointers can be used with a range of hip dominant / hinge movements 👍
Contrast training , a simple yet effective training method to aid strength and power, ideal for in season. Contrast training consists of a loaded exercise followed by a light or unloaded exercise. This type of training also supports the PAP (post-activation potentiation) theory.
Some of the main movement patterns used across all gym based program’s. •Horizontal Upper Body Push •Horizontal UB Pull •Vertical UB Push •Vertical UB Pull •Squat Pattern (bi & unilateral) •Hinge Pattern (bi & unilateral) These are some of the main and most commonly seen movement patterns out there, missing are; •Rotational •Diagonal •Anti lateral flexion •Anti flexion •Anti rotation •Anti extension Also good to note that while these exercises fall into each movement category, there are so many variations of each movement pattern that can be applied due to aims and abilities, there is no one size fits all solution.
Friday night thoughts.. we have 2 single legs that compliment each other. Squatting heavy will get both legs strong (within reason) but training both legs simultaneously isn’t always best. The unpredictable nature of a competitive sporting environment often leaves us absorbing excessive force through just one leg. Excluding contact from an opponent, exercises like running and sprinting all require the single leg to absorb and produce a force repeatedly. At any one time there is only one point of contact with the ground. #strength#relevance
Working on a needs analysis assignment as part of my masters degree at the moment and it got me thinking about the biomechanical needs of team/field sport athletes; To name but a few; •Must be able to apply force into ground (Sprinting) •Must be able to rapidly absorb force repeatedly (Decelerating, Slowing down) •Must be able to react to unanticipated stimuli and compensate where needed (Moments of imbalance, impacts , tactical awareness) •Most importantly, Must be able to apply all of the above simultaneously in a competitive environment.
