S&C Week in Review: 5/26

Just like every other Sunday, we have another group of podcasts and articles to read and listen to that I have dived into. Like every other week, there was a ton of content out there both in written form and through podcasts. Enjoy!

Lots of really good listens this week. Do yourself a favor over the Memorial Day weekend and listen to all of these if you can, especially the Leave Your Mark episode with Chris Doyle.

Really good stuff this week but I would direct you to two in particular. One, Eric Cressey wrote a great one of the most important responsibility we have as coaches – check it out. Second, hamstring pulls are extremely common in a lot of sports – thankfully Coach Boyle wrote a great article on training those hamstrings.

Not one of our “big rock” exercises by any means, but you’d be hard pressed to find a better movement for an overhead athlete. Checks a lot of boxes. ▫️ . . ✅ Scap Upward Rotation. ▫️ . . ✅ Eccentric Control of Downward Rotation. ▫️ . . ✅ Shoulder Friendly Pressing. ▫️ . . ✅ Anti-Extension Core. ▫️ . . In a perfect world, the movement would have a fluid and smooth transition from the push up into the dog down, almost making it one movement. ▫️ . . Depending on the time of the year and the strength levels of the people/athletes you are working with, this could be used in the warm up or as part of the strength program. The one downfall is that it is extremely had to load beyond body weight.
