When In Doubt, Think Strength and Conditioning
So… Why Tall Kneeling?
Performing exercises in the half kneeling position is a great way to supercharge your workouts without having to increase load and reps. We use them with all of our clients at DSP. They’re great for improving balance, trunk stability, glute medius strength and teaching you how to link up body segments. Make sure to check this one out. Gray Cook is brilliant!
Preventing the ACL Injury Epidemic With Strength & Conditioning
ACL Prevention Training is simply good strength training. There are ACL Prevention programs everywhere, yet the rates of injuries are rising. Our solution to this problem at DSP is to make sure that the mobile joints are mobile, the stable joints are stable, and the core is strong. Check out this nice article from Dr. John Rusin on the benefits of strength training to help reduce the the likelihood of non contact ACL injuries. This should be common knowledge by now.
Video of the Week – Explosive Kettlebell Complex
In this week’s video installment we have an explosive kettlebell complex consisting of Power Snatch, Split Jerk and Dead Split Snatch. We’ll use this advanced complex with our youth athletes that have been training with us for at least two years.
I love kettlebell complexes. They perfect for athletes looking for both explosive power and anaerobic endurance. This complex can be used as a warmup when we’re training above 90% days and as a workout on our speed-strength days. Check it out!
