I'm in a conditioning phase but have to keep up my tissue #elasticity. I love this simple, yet effective move.
Lots going on here; my posture control is all over the place - don't hate. Need to hone it in but I'm a little rusty on contact causing postural perturbations. But notice the lack of knee flexion and lack of heel drop. I still have some bounce..

I was all about the front rack yesterday and am playing with some variations. This one hits a lot of areas I like without taking away too much from one.
I love the core challenge it provides while also drawing attention to the efficiency (or lack of) I have in either leg. My left side might appear easier, but there is a pretty noticeable hesitation between left and right. ••••••••••••••••
Notice how my right foot barely touches and there is little hesitation in the switch from eccentric to concentric. My left leg requires more of my left foot to touch before I can comfortably give concentric power. •••••••••••••
This move is definitely advanced and not a typical reverse lunge. I love how the front rack allows your leverage to load that front leg almost exclusively while maintaining posture. •••••••••••••
Single leg work is always revealing and damn challenging! #Colorado#sportsperformance#athletics#highjump#longjump#triplejump#sprinters#trackandfield#power#strength

・・・ #TuesdayTraining . Was filming some stuff for my clients and decided to make a video on eccentric/reflexive core control. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀For performance, this is a huge focus point for me. The better you can reflexively control what happens to your posture mid-flight, stride, or lift, the more in control of your position you can be in. Better position provides better power and/or performance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Eccentric control is key for changing direction/velocity or absorbing and redirecting large amounts of force through your torso. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀. ⠀Any version of anti-extension and eccentrics I'm a fan of!

#mondaymotivation ... I love this word #luminary •••••••••••••••
It's defined as a person who inspires or influences others especially when prominent in a sphere. Everyone has the ability to be prominent in a sphere of their choice, but not everyone can inspire the same or influence the same. The word luminary to me seems benevolent and powerful, with its synonyms being "leading light, guiding light, hero/heroine, master, inspiration". GO, BE THE LIGHT. Become luminary. Someone needs it. ••••••••••••••• #trackandfield#athletics#sprinter#jumper#longjump#highjump#triplejump#hurdles#polevault
Clip from last week. Too cold outside which means I wanted to find a way to work acceleration work indoors... it didn't work on this thing but I got to playing on it.
I'm indifferent for the purposes of developing sprinting ability. Sprinting is largely technical and elastic in nature. Posture, position, and elasticity rule sprinting. This thing forces you to run at the front of it to move faster (unless I'm doing it wrong, in which I'm happy to be educated!). I feel as though the mass of the user dictates the mph as well as amount of horizontal force you apply at contact. For ME to go faster, I need to focus on doing what I do best; spring, be elastic, and don't try to run faster. Basically the opposite of what you see here. In an attempt to run faster I apply too much force, overstride, my levers are too long and hands come too high, and I'm doing the chicken head bob.
It is just a tool, and tools can be utilized to different effect depending on the user.
