Important Considerations Mileage Covered – up to 12 miles at highest levels Movement Patterns in Games Walking (18.9%), jogging (46.6%), running/striding (12.1%), sprinting (6.2%) and backwards movement (16.2%) (AJSM, 1994) Sitting – And what we do the other 22.5 hours of the day Effect on muscles
Strength Demands Specific to the Job Strength Needs for a Runner Middle 1/3 of Body
…a thought about “Abs” “Abs” are made in the kitchen not the gym. Core stability is goal (anti-movement)
Strength Demands Specific to the Job Strength Needs for a Runner Hips Get Priority! HIP ABDUCTORS & EXTERNAL ROTATORS
Strength Demands Specific to the Job Strength Needs for a Runner Train the Muscles you CAN’T see. GLUTES, GLUTES, HAMSTRINGS, UPPER BACK, AND MORE GLUTES! Glutes are made in the gym.
Strength Demands Specific to the Job Strength Needs for a Runner Breathing MATTERS!
Mobility Needs T Spine Hips Ankles
World’ Greatest Stretch VIDEO
Performance Demands Specific to Job Training Needs for Soccer Movements Role of Plyometrics Bilateral (Jumping) Split Stance (Lunge Position) Single Leg (Hopping) Role of Agility Work - Ladder/Box Drills Single Plane (Shuffle / Backpedal) Multi-Directional (45 and 90 degree cuts, side step cutting)
Performance Demands Specific to Job Cardiovascular Training AEROBIC BASE IS MUST! BUILD INTERVALS SPRINTS ON TOP OF BASE
TAKE HOME POINTS Train the back side of your body Train both 2-Leg movements & 1-Leg Movements Train Balance Train Stability of Low back, Knee, and Upper Back. GROUND BASED MOVEMENTS – muscles don’t work in isolation.
TAKE HOME POINTS Reps/Sets & Frequency Compound Movements – multiple joints involved Supersets – get plyo & stability work in between Quality > Quantity FORM MATTERS! Hip vs Quad Dominant Movements. Angled Tibia + Upright Torso = Quad Dominant Vertical Tibia + Inclined Torso = Hip Dominant
