Why Do WE Perform Contrast Training?
Potentiation, Manipulating the CNS & Enhanced Rate of Force Development.
When Do We Implement It in Our Program?
Usually on our second lift of the week (Wednesday) before a weekend of games.
How Do We Implement It in Our Program?
We pair a strength movement (Skater Squat) with a biomechanically similar power movement (Explosive Step Up), like the video.
What Are the Sets & Reps?
We usually perform 2-3 sets. The strength exercise will be between 2-5 reps and then the power exercise between 5-10 reps. Typically we shoot for 10-30 seconds of rest between the strength and power exercise.
