Happy Monday! Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts and other continuing ed. Enjoy!
- “The human body is incredibly complex. Training isn’t.” – Jorge Carvajal Couldn’t agree more. Push and pull things. Hip hinge and bridge. Squat on one and two legs. Carry things. Perform anti-extension/rotation/lateral-flexion core work.
- Volume, especially in-season, is a killer. Continually figure out how you can get the adaptations you are after while doing as little as possible. Minimum dose, maximal effect.
- I think coaches under-estimate the value of med ball work. You can get more specific with the planes/patterns you are training power, which isn’t going to happen with a barbell.
