Running with Wearable Resistance – Injury Resistance?

Do you want to understand a little more about the ground reaction forces associated with running? How about a little up-skilling on wearable resistance (WR), injury, rotational overload and movement specific strength training? If so, then step inside this article and I’ll run through this with you.

Get Faster : A Step Frequency Focus

So you want to get faster getting from A to B, whether it be a 100 m, 1000 m or 10,000 m. It is simple – mechanically speaking, as all you need to do is increase your step frequency or your step length as these are the two primary determinants of speed or getting between the start and finish faster.

Wearable Resistance Driving Better Golf Performance

First up, I am the first to admit that I am not a golfer. In fact, I play once every 3-4 years and I call my style, recovery golf. I drive and I spend the rest of the hole trying to recover. So why this blog, and what right have I discussing golf with people so much more learned than myself. Well, where I want to come from is that I do know a little about wearable resistance (WR) and the biomechanics behind it. And I do think it can be beneficial to golf players.

Developing Power – Explosive Power

Your baby sister is powerful. Your granddad is powerful. We are all powerful. This is because power is the product of force and velocity (P = F x v) and all human movement is a mixture of these two variables. The gentle slow stroke of a mother pacifying a child, or the quick jab of a boxer, can be loosely termed power movements as they both have different contributions of force and velocity. So where am I going with this?

Getting More Acceleration in Your Force – Ballistics Unpacked

Question for you. Does ballistic training, training where you project yourself or a load, train explosive power? Log that answer in your grey matter and have a read, to see if you are on the money. This article is bit of a coming together of concepts that I have shared over the last couple of weeks around force, velocity, power and explosive power.
