Strength and Conditioning

Train Like You Play

There are many variables that exist in the world of strength and conditioning, most of which athletes and avid exercisers are familiar with adjusting in order to get the desired effect from their exercise.  For example, someone looking to build muscle size may primarily perform their resistance exercises in a certain repetition range and at a certain percentage of their…

Get To Know Yourself and Your Response to Exercise

 Rate of Perceived Exertion Get to Know Yourself and Your Response to Exercise   There is a lot of great technology out there that is capable of giving you metrics on your workouts, but there is nothing that can substitute the keen sense of an athlete that is in-touch with their physiology.   Know thyself! To help you have a reference…

Benefits of Sprint and Plyometric Training for the Distance Runner

Distance runners and endurance sport athletes find satisfaction in their longer, lower-intensity workouts and events for various reasons. It is common for people in endurance sports to avoid, limit, or not even consider participation in high-intensity exercise. Some don’t know how to implement these exercises and some feel it will negatively impact their endurance performance. It may come as a…

Does Running Technique Matter?

Many people recognize the importance of technique when they become familiar with a sport.  For instance, a basketball player is quite familiar with proper shooting form, a golfer the perfect swing, and a soccer player needs to focus on how they strike the ball.  In many sports, technique is far more than just improving a skill, but can actually be…

Run Faster and More Efficiently!

In distance running going faster is often thought to require greater propulsion, and ultimately, greater effort.  When you are nearing the end of a training run and trying to maintain a certain heart rate, or perhaps approaching the final mile of a marathon and running on “E”, the last thing you want to think about is exerting more effort and…

Avoiding “Chronic Cardio”

The term “Chronic Cardio” came into my awareness while reading a book by Mark Sisson titled Primal Endurance.  This term is used to describe the exercise patterns that some of us get into while pursuing our goals, whether they be weight loss, better fitness, or an upcoming race.  The description of this pattern in Mark’s book hits close to home…

Sport Specialization Among Young Athletes

Sport participation can offer several benefits to children and adolescents when dosed appropriately.  But, over the past several years, youth athletics has changed considerably. It has changed from child-driven, fun recreational play for enjoyment to adult-driven, highly structured practice dedicated to sport-specific skill development. Young athletes have been challenged with growing competiveness in youth sports, pressures from adult coaches/parents, and…

7 Exercises to Reduce the Risk of Knee Injuries in Soccer Players!

It is important to make sure you are regularly challenging your neuromuscular system and training it to tolerate the loads you take on as a soccer player.  Research has shown that performing a consistent neuromuscular training program can reduce the risk of injury.  There are obviously other factors involved in injury rates as well (i.e. fatigue, nutrition, strength, and sleep)…

Injury Resistance- Practice Like you Play

Injury in sport can happen to anyone.  As speed and impact increase in higher level competition, so does the likelihood of injury.  This is why, in most sports, injuries are more likely to happen (and to require surgery) during competition rather than practice (Nagle, et al).  This should intuitively make sense to anyone who has ever experienced the difference between…

COVID-19 Home Workout For Runners

Many of us have more free time at home these days presenting us with ample time and opportunity to examine whatever we choose to about ourselves.  I personally am constantly examining elements of my running preparedness and technique and feel that a little more free time to do so couldn’t hurt.  Running is a skilled activity in which improvements in…
