Improving Athletic Performance
You're competing in a CrossFit competition. Multiple events over the space of a day. How can you best fuel your body to maximise performance?
Flocks of CrossFit athletes around the world follow the masses into whatever program bias is in vogue. There is simply too much individual athlete variance for blanket programming to work.
We measure reps by startpoint and endpoint. What if we had a series of criteria that must be met between these points for reps to count? Criteria that encouraged efficient, safe and powerful movement. Let's start rewarding movement quality, not movement completion. Start handing out a couple of technique based 'no reps' and watch how fast people respond.
Long term successful training and performance improvement can be nullified by poor preparation in the days leading up to a major competition. Here, we discuss training, recovery, movement preparation, nutrition and mental preparation from seven days out.
We train hard. Our recovery needs to match this intensity. We cover the best ways to recover to train hard again.
Soft tissue injury recovery often rushed. How long does it really take to get strength back to 100%?
We discuss the importance of ankle dorsi-flexion, specifically in Olympic Lifting. We explore the physiology and biomechanics resulting from immobility and suggest methods for improvement.
Training, like life, is a series of choices, a series of decisions. It’s all about weighing up effort versus reward.
