Strength & Conditioning Coaches Roundtable Discussion Part 1

As we’ve done before, US & C asked six strength & conditioning professionals six questions about their programs, philosophies, beliefs and implementation strategies.  We have quite a diverse group this time, so their responses are very interesting.  A lot can be learned from asking the same questions to multiple people.

http://naturesown.co.za/product/chelated-calcium-tabs-100/?add-to-cart=23725 Chris Ruf – Baylor University (Director of Football Athletic Performance):  We believe that in our football program, our speed, agility, and more specifically, our skill work has the greatest transfer to the field, simply because these are the actions that are most similar to the tasks they must perform on the field.  We have all seen athletes that put too much emphasis on what they can accomplish in the weight room and not enough on the ability to move athletically and function in their sport.  Don’t get me wrong, improving strength is important for athletes, but it cannot be their sole focus or done at the expense of limiting movement and skill training.  If you can hit great lifting/testing scores, but can’t improve your ability to play football, you’ve wasted a lot of time.  The truly great athletes perfect the fundamental skills required by their position so they can be sound in practice and on game day.


http://audiodescription.co.uk/directory/describers/north-east/opera Tom Palumbo – Ohio State University:  A former co-worker of mine told me that we are “effort coaches”.  People never work at 110%.  Most people/athletes never work at 100%.  Testing is about the only time that we get close or reach 100% effort.  Many other strength and conditioning coaches have been very generous in sharing their programs with me.  These programs are elite training protocols.  You can lead an horse to water, but you can’t make him drink. I always tell recruits that we make it easy for them to succeed here with all of our resources.  The truth is that it matters less what we as coaches put into their program card and more what the athlete puts into their workout.  Your athletes on the same team will do the same program or similar programs, yet some produce better results than others.  Genetics plays a part, but I believe desire plays a bigger role.  If we can get athletes to give greater effort and give that greater effort more often then we will see greater results.  If this mentality transfers into the culture of the team then they have put themselves in a position to win.


How To Buy Real Xanax Online Buy Bulk Xanax Online Bret Contreras ( http://bretcontreras.wordpress.com http://dynamotaxi.com/index.php ): Obviously it depends on the individual, but in general I believe that heavy strength training transfers best. Athletes perform specific explosive and plyometric actions during practice and competition, so the greatest single complementary quality is strength. Proper strength training can improve mechanics and eliminate dysfunction by improving flexibility, joint stability, muscle activation, and motor programs. This will improve movement efficiency and therefore improve speed/power and speed/power endurance. Strength can improve rate of force development, positively impact the entire force-velocity curve, and improve strength endurance. Eccentric strength in particular can prevent injuries. Strength training can improve body composition which improves power just by reducing fat storages. Strength training can prevent injuries via improved bone and soft-tissue adaptations a la Wolff’s Law and Davis’s Law, as the body’s architecture adapts to the directional load vectors placed upon it. Finally, there’s a psychological component and confidence-factor associated with max strength training that cannot be ignored. Note that heavy strength training works best when the athlete is also performing speed, agility, and plyometric training; which occurs naturally during sports in-season.


Ronnie McKeefery – University of South Florida:  Each piece of our program is equally important. I wholeheartedly believe you should only put things in your program that are necessary. We stress training the neck as much as doing squats for example. 


http://bandarbaju.com/tag/grosir-celana-dalam-pria-tanah-abang?s= Alan Stein – www.strongerteam.com http://artists-atelier.com/blog/page/7/ :  I certainly don’t mean to cop out… but I think every aspect of a well designed program (strength, power, quickness, reaction, agility, flexibility/mobility, and conditioning) works in conjunction to lay the foundation for performance on the basketball court.  The more solid the foundation, the higher the potential peak. A player who improves their athleticism can perform their basketball skills at a higher level, can perform them with more efficiency, and can perform them for longer before the onset of fatigue. That is why the best players are in the best shape!

Then, depending on sport; Olympic lifts (when done right), squatting, posterior chain development (RDL’s, deadlifts, glute-ham/hip extensions), pull-ups, push-ups, pressing. I also believe that sprint and agility training and conditioning transfer to sport.

2.  What role to you feel training for 1RM strength has in working with your athletes?  Why?


Bret Contreras:  I feel that limit strength is very important for all the reasons listed above. I’m not confident in other trainers/coaches ability to safely implement 1RM training with their athletes but I am personally very confident and comfortable with this methodology. By utilizing good, sound form, rotating exercises, and developing proper strength balances, a coach can greatly reduce the incidents of injuries incurred during maximum strength training. It is critical that the athletes are supervised during max strength training and good habits are developed from the get-go so the athletes understand what’s acceptable and what’s not. Some lifts are very conducive to 1RM training, while others are not. Among these lifts are back squats, front squats, box squats, deadlifts, rack pulls, bench press, board press, and weighted chin ups. Exercises such as military press, rows, hip thrusts, good mornings, push ups, and curls are better suited for medium or even higher rep ranges.

Alan Stein:  It doesn’t have any role in my program, I don’t do 1RM testing.  I choose not to do it for 3 reasons: 1) High risk of injury… especially given the long limb lengths that most basketball players have, 2) Performing a 1RM is a very specific skill… just as shooting a free throw is… and I don’t want to “waste” valuable training time training for a skill they don’t need (I would prefer they spend their time on the skills they do need… shooting, ball handling, passing, etc.), 3) What a player can “do” for 1RM in the weight room as absolutely nothing to do with predicting their success on the court. Kevin Durant couldn’t bench 185 lbs. coming out of college… and he is a hair away from being the best player on the planet.


At the end of the day, I can measure progress and improve the functional strength necessary for basketball, in a safer, more time efficient, and more appropriate way without using a 1RM!


Alprazolam India Online Aaron Schwenzfeier: It depends on where the athlete is developmentally.  Is their ‘training’ age quite low and can barely squat 135? Or are they a 5th year senior who squats well over 500 lbs.? In young, weak athletes it’s hugely important. In strong, “advanced” athletes, it’s not as large.  Again, this is an “it depends” question. What are the most glaring weaknesses?


http://artists-atelier.com/wp-content/themes/organic_response/images/french_flag@2x.png Chris Ruf:  Improving strength serves the purpose of enhancing the athlete’s ability to produce and absorb force.  If the accompanying movement, mobility, and power training is sound, improving strength can help put a more powerful engine in the athletes, as well as help give them better brakes.  If strength is gained at the expense of, or without improving mobility, speed, sport skill, etc., this is a misdirected use of training and the athletes benefit will be minimal.


http://audiodescription.co.uk/directory/describers/west-midlands/certificate-in-audio-description-skills-stage/south-east/south-west?font_size=decrease Ronnie McKeefery:  I do test 1RM’s. It gives me some valuable metrics when periodizing multiple joint movements, provides feedback on training programs, and provides a added source of motivation for the athletes. However we go out of our way to make sure they know we prepare not compare.
