Training maximum performance
- World’s best athletes are animals
Theory :
Speed and impact force is a function of muscle activation rate and rate if relaxation
- consider : muscle activation creates force and stiffness force cant be fast
- apparent paradox:
o strength = speed
o relaxation = speed
- how do ufc fighters create such a forceful and fast kick? double pulse
o Hardens body to get muscle going
o Relax
o At the end, he hardens his body again
o When you get tired, you don’t relax – not good
o Hardening of body called effective mass
o Thus, double pulse for speed and strike force (effective mass)
o Conclusion : rate of muscle contraction and rate of relaxation is
important
o Great athletes relax faster
- Train your rates of relaxation
- Relax and be faster to be stronger
- There is usually too much emphasis on training to increase mass with
hypertrophy (which slows motion)rather than training effective mass
Being the best take the challenge
- Justify every exercise you prescribe; then assume that you must optimize
athleticism but make weight
- “ train the brain, train the nerves, I don’t train the muscles”, Vasily Alexeyev
Functional Strength (kazmaier)
- similar to alexeyev
- move the neuromuscular compartments
- the double cam - superstiffness posture and lat dorsi pull down on the lat
dorsi get your strength proximally
Russian Squat Techniques
- elastic bands on the weight
- use the toes and heels
- use the neuromuscular part
- hip abduction and external rotation
o activates glut max. and med and ab wall more than conventional squat
o unloads the knee lift more?
o Spread the floor with external rotation left more
