The Michigan Football Strength Staff would like to personally invite you to our Strength Clinic on Saturday April 20th. We are very excited about our speaker line-up and would love to have you with us. If you are interested you can go to the link below to register. Thanks and Go Blue.
You're getting one of our girls golfers next year, Brooke Cusumano. She's one of the few HS golfers I know that loves to hit the weight room. You'll enjoy her.
Coach, I hope you are doing well!!
I hope you are doing well.
Just following up on your question about "Complex Training," also known as Postactivation Potentiation. So, the concept of potentiation following a bout of high intensity exercise, like a squat or dead lift (near maximum effort), is based on the increased phosphorylation of the myosin chain, increasing sarcoplasmic Ca2+, that obviously increases cross bridge activity, higher motor recruitment and synchronization, along with the decreased inhibitory action of the interneurons, that usually reduce reflex electrical activity at the spine. So, when a powerful contraction occurs after a high intensity exercise, such as a vertical jump, the athlete could improve performance. However, PAP is limited by fatigue, so there has to be rest between the high intensity exercise and the explosive one. Even though there is not an ideal resting time defined yet, most researchers have seen best results between 8-12 minutes. Hence, the possible performance enhancement is based on the balance between muscle fatigue and potentiation and only if potentiation is greater, there will be a performance improvement.

Glad to hear you don't agree with everything I say. That is good, that is how we learn. We need to challenge each other to get better.
Sounds good man. Hope the off season is treating you well
THE GOOD THING ABOUT STRENGTH TRAINING, IS WE NEVER QUIT LEARNING!
MY COACHING FRIEND FROM THE UKRAINE ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT EVOLVING AS A COACH. IF YOUR NOT LEARNING, YOU NEED TO FIND ANOTHER FIELD!
I THINK THAT IS A HUGE PROBLEM HERE IN THE USA WITH OUR COACH'S.
ALL THE BEST TO YOU, TIM SWORDS
