Backward walking and running are unique forms of locomotion that have many injury resistance and performance benefits. One of the unique qualities is that there is minimal stretch shorten cycle contribution during movement and therefore maximises overload of the contractile component. Click here to find out more about the research, benefits and programming for unresisted and resisted backward motion with a focus on running. Improving athletic potential and injury resistance are the foci of this resource.
Two contraction types brought together to provide a unique training stimulus for injury prevention, rehab and sporting performance. EQI has many benefits especially its influence on the quality and quantity of connective tissue that contributes to force production and transmission. Click here to find out more about the research, benefits and programming for EQI. Improving tissue capacity and strength are the foci of this resource.
Wearable resistance is a form of strength training where light loads are affixed to the body in some manner. This type of training allows the athlete to strength train as part of their normal training (e.g. sprinting) rather than separate from it. Click here to find out more about the research, benefits and programming using wearable resistance. This resource looks at the application of wearable resistance for the speed development of your athletes.
Resisted sprint training methods such as sled pushing and pulling are thought movement specific strength training to enhance sprint ability. Recent research has provided insight into the benefits of light to heavy loading and proposed are resistance model for horizontally overloading your athletes. Click here to find out more about the research, benefits and programming for sled pushing and pulling. Improving athlete speed in particular acceleration capability is the focus of this resource.
