"Hello John, What I understand about PAP, is that it is meant to maximize power output and rate of force development with a practical application to explosive sports. As you mentioned, the protocol is implementing a "potentiation" exercise…"

"Marcus Elliott, MD et al at P3 use PAP in their work both training and studying elite athletes.  You might want to contact them (see www.appliedsportsscience.com) and get their input."

Post-Activation-Potentiation (PAP) for the athlete - Theoretical and practical implications

Post-Activation-Potentiation (PAP) is a physiological principle that many resistance training programs are starting to implement. The athlete performs a strength exercise (bench press, squat, deadlift, etc.) and super-sets a ploymetric immediately afterward. The plyometric must be in coordination with the strength exercise - If the athlete performs a set of squats, their PAP exercise would be box jumps, lunge jumps, tuck jumps, etc. If the athlete performs a set of bench press, their PAP…See More

John Lockwood commented on John Lockwood's blog post Barbell Back Squat vs. Single Leg Barbell Squat

"Interesting post.  The bilateral deficit has been known for a long time.  In the last couple years or so, I saw where Mike Boyle (think may have seen it here) said back squats were mainly a low back exercise while the single leg squat was…"

Barbell Back Squat vs. Single Leg Barbell Squat

Many programs have varying views when it comes to training for strength in the lower body (glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, etc.). The Back Squat, ideally, has the highest potential to evaluate accurate strength through the quadriceps and glutes, however, as the weight increases, the mechanics and posture are likely to be incorrect and risk of injury increases. The primary reason why back squat can be detrimental, and in some causes adversely affect training, to an athlete’s performance is due…See More

Fast bench press - Eccentric and concentric training for strength stability, explosiveness, and power

Today’s lift consisted of a variation of bench press that’s called fast bench press. The athlete controls the weight on the eccentric contraction of the chest, ideally for 2 to 2.5 seconds, and then explodes as fast as possible concentrically contracting on the way up. The sets and reps were 5X5. The weight was 60% of the athletes 1RPM. I’m in favor of this type of lift because of how it can be applied to sport specific movements, particularly in football and even more specifically with…

John,

You must do the following:

1.  Be committed to the field with both feet in.  I don't know a single strength coach that has not said that this is the only job they can see themselves doing.  If you are have a couple of choices or back up plans you won't make it.  No back up plans.  

2.  You must have the academic pedigree - Degrees and Certs.

3.  You must be believable.  If you weren't a former player than you must find something to is similar (MMA, Powerlifting, etc).  You must also take calculated positions.  For example if you want to work in the NFL you must work your way up or work at a major college.  You can't work at a High School and expect to jump straight to the NFL just because you have a degree and cert.  

4.  Lastly, Network, Network, Network.  

 

Hope that helps.

John,
I have been working as a student assistant strength & conditioning coach at Utah for just over 2 years now. I also just completed my first year as the strength & conditioning coach at Westminster College here in Salt Lake City. The head strength coach at Utah is Doug Elisaia. Good luck with everything.
