Is this the way you train your athletes?
So there I was searching the internet for strength training thoughts and ideas when I ran across a photo posted on a Cro..F.. site. You fill in the blank letters. Here was a guy hunched over a barbell with what looked to be two twenty-five pound bumper plates on both ends of the bar.
When I say hunched over that is exactly what I mean, he was literally hunched over the bar. His shoulders were rounded forward and at least 4-6 inches in front of the bar as he leaned over it. What’s worse was the fact that his back was one rounded semi-circle from the base of his neck to the starting of his ass. His neck was extended backward until it formed almost a 90-degree angle with his rounded back.
Strength tip: Finding the right strength coach
Now you have found that tomorrows take on a life of their own with a long history of tomorrows and nothing to show for the time spent. You need an expert to get you on the path of better fitness.
Finding a strength coach that fits your needs as a participating athlete in the strength sports involves more than simply signing your name to a gym membership. A good coach is a valuable asset when it comes to getting strong. Every good coach will have many if not all of the following characteristics.
Strength tip: Factors to consider when determining rest periods between sets
To many people, a rest period means sitting down and catching their breath before moving onto the next set. While this is partially true, a rest period provides much more than that in advancing your strength, power, and ultimately your health. According to information in Optimizing Strength Training, during strength training sessions the time spent resting between sets and exercises directly influences the response of the hormonal, metabolic, and cardiorespiratory structures of the body.
Strength tip: Stretching Strength and flexibility training
Stretching and strength training go hand in hand. Start your workout with a general full body warm up then move to a dynamic upper, mid or lower torso stretch and end up with your movement specific stretch.
If you are unsure of how to make the most of your stretching exercises here is a handy twenty nine page booklet to look at and learn from. Stretching tips was written by my Australian stretching guide cohort, Brad Walker.
Stretching a the end of your strength training session helps prepare your body for the next one.
