During this class, we will focus on the area of Fundamental Performance.
This is where our foundational strength and conditioning concepts come
into play. Focusing on total body movements, force transfer, strength
development, power development, core stabilization and core propulsion
are our focus here. Concepts of periodization, time under tension,
manipulating load and manipulating speed of movement will be our focus.
I have said it many times: I became a better clinician when I started
hanging out with strength coaches. And the more I hang out with strength
coaches, the better of a clinician I become.
As clinicians, we get very comfortable in a world of 3 sets of 10. We know
that is not the world our athletes live in. They often live in a world of 6 sets
of 1, or 20 sets of 1, or more. Creating strength in our clients as they move
through the rehab to performance system is a must and understanding
how to manipulate variables to create this strength is fundamental to
bridging the gap from rehab to performance.
We will explore these concepts during the rest of this class, looking at
programming variables and considerations that are necessary to at least
understand and be able to communicate with strength and conditioning
professionals. Ideally, we are able to implement these concepts into our
programs as we bridge the gap from rehab to performance.
