CoachTube Presents: Advanced Principles in Biochemical Programming - Cal Dietz

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE WHOLE THING: . Coach Cal Dietz has been an Olympic Sports Strength and Conditioning Coach, and in this video he gives an introduction to his principles of Biochemical Engineering.

Co-authoring a book presented a unique challenge that neither of us expected. The book is a compilation of stories, personal experiences, and knowledge of two individuals. As such, a conventional writing style would have us write the book in a manner that distinguishes which author is contributing to a specific story or anecdote. It would require us to preface sentences with, “Cal remembers when...” or “Ben worked with an athlete who...” When we were finished with sections of the book and went back to read what we had written, we found the constant quoting hindered the flow of the book and prevented the reader from making connections between examples that came off as separate story lines. To solve this perceived flaw to the book, we came up with a simple solution. We wrote the book from the first person view of a third party narrative. Instead of stating which one of us is involved with a story, we say “I remember” or “I worked with.” In essence, we created an imaginary person who is the culmination of both of our life experiences, knowledge, and stories. We beg the readers indulgence with this style choice and say that it is in no way meant to deceive or misguide the reader as to the source of information, but rather to improve the consistency and readability of the book. We feel that this allows for one clear voice to present the information and will maximize the usefulness of the material to the reader. Get it here

IMPROVE PERFORMANCE WITH CONTRAST SETS

Hello Athletes and Warriors!
I pray your programs are rolling right along this new year and you are getting leaner, stronger, faster, and better than ever!
One of the things that our members will notice is the vast variations in your programs. Everything from set, reps, weights, and the structure from the programs from week to week will vary.
The longer you are in the program you will notice that the contrast becomes even deeper and more detailed.
I should point out that this is not random, there is a science behind this method and its called many things and one of those terms is Contrast.

To further explain this concept, I turn the floor over to our friends at GoProWorkouts.com
-Nate

One of the goals of athletic performance training should be to increase athletes' work capacity while improving (reducing) their recovery time. Contrast training is a highly effective method for improving many physical attributes involved in athletic performance, including strength, power, speed (acceleration) and agility — if implemented properly.One of the goals of athletic performance training should be to increase athletes' work capacity while improving (reducing) their recovery time. Contrast training is a highly effective method for improving many physical attributes involved in athletic performance, including strength, power, speed (acceleration) and agility — if implemented properly.Contrast training involves performing a set of a heavy resistance exercise, immediately followed by a set of a biomechanically similar power exercise (for example, a barbell back squat, immediately followed by a squat jump). Complex trainingis a similar approach, which involves performing 3-4 sets of heavy resistance training followed by 3-4 sets of the biomechanically similar power exercise.

The benefits of contrast training include:
• Effective in producing results
• Highly efficient
• Allows for high work density
• Time effective
• Allows athletes to complete fewer training sessions in order to yield the same or greater results
• May have implications for injury prevention

Here's an example of a simple contrast model for athletes to build explosive power:
• Barbell Back Squat — 1 rep 65-80% 1RM + Box Jump — 1 rep; rest 15-20 seconds
• Barbell Back Squat — 1 rep 65-80% 1RM + Box Jump — 1 rep; rest 15-20 seconds
• Barbell Back Squat — 1 rep 65-80% 1RM + Box Jump — 1 rep; rest 15-20 seconds
• Barbell Back Squat — 1 rep 65-80% 1RM + Box Jump — 1 rep
• Rest 2-3 minutes, then repeat for a total of 2-4 sets

Incorporate this superset into your workout for speed development:
• Hex Deadlift — 1 rep 65-80% 1RM + Hurdle Hop — 1 rep; rest 20 seconds
• Hex Deadlift — 1 rep 65-80% 1RM + Hurdle Hop — 1 rep; rest 20 seconds
• Hex Deadlift — 1 rep 65-80% 1RM + Hurdle Hop — 1 rep; rest 20 seconds
• Hex Deadlift — 1 rep 65-80% 1RM + Hurdle Hop — 1 rep
• Rest 2-3 minutes, then repeat for a total of 2-4 sets

And finally, a superset using two explosive/plyometric exercises:
• Squat Jump — 25-30% (body weight) load + Depth Jump — 1 rep; rest 15-20 seconds
• Squat Jump — 25-30% (body weight) load + Depth Jump — 1 rep; rest 15-20 seconds
• Squat Jump — 25-30% (body weight) load + Depth Jump — 1 rep; rest 15-20 seconds
• Squat Jump — 25-30% (body weight) load + Depth Jump — 1 rep
• Rest 2-3 minutes, then repeat for a total of 1-3 sets

ACL Injuries Up 400 Percent in Young Athletes!

Athletes, Warriors, and anyone who love them! We are in code red in incidence of injury in sport and life.
ACL's (Anterior Cruciate Ligaments ) are getting huge publicity in part because of its commonality among professional athletes some of whom will suffer these injuries in front of a National TV audience.
Watch this news report from Texas from 2015 that illustrates how severe this epidemic is and some of the ways that you can help prevent or reduce the chances of this kind of injury.
-Natekidaclinjuries041312_722x406_2222766458.jpg


How do you prepare your young athlete or seasoned vet to avoid ACL and other injuries? By engaging in a year round training program that helps him/her prepare for their sport. If a good strength coach or personal trainer is not feasible or affordable; train online with US Sports Online Strength and Conditioning.Saving money, time and possibly you or your child's knees, ankles, shoulders, etc.,Go to http://www.fitnessgenerator.com/ussportsradioand fill out the fitness profile form to get started.

Once we have determined a course of action to include ACL injury prevention, then part of your year round program will include our ACL rehab strength and power program described below:

Custom Strength and Power Programs
These are a group of Custom Strength and Power Programs with some great additions and variations to the original Strength and Power Programs.

The programs with the word "Olympic" in the title will have the Olympic lifts (power clean, snatch etc) added in. The programs with "Advanced" in the title will use something called "phase jumping". Phase jumping means it includes a set that calls for one rep at an intensity level that is 5-10% higher than the work sets. This set has been added at the end of the descending warmup for the "bigger" or primary strength exercises like squat, power clean, bench etc. The set combinations for these exercises appear rather long, but usually half of them are actually warmup based! These phase jumping sets allow the body to neurally adapt to the training poundages that will be experienced in the next phase of training in the workout.

Included as one of these Custome Programs is an ACL "Functional" Rehab Programthat is designed to bring strength levels back up over a 12 week time period. This ACL Rehab Program should not be done unless full range of motion exists in the knee joint, and physician clearance has occurred.

Spin Your Way To A Better Body!

Good morning Athletes and Warriors!
I find it interesting that here near our home base in Washington D.C.; that so many take cycling seriously. For fitness, health and to compete in various events at all levels.
Well, for those of you who have worked with me either online or in person, know what I know. That the best way to enjoy or excel at any physical activity is to train for it. So take a look at US Sports Online Strength and Conditioning Cycling Conditioning programs.
-Nate

Image result for Olympic Cycling animatedCycling
The focus of the Cycling Programs is to develop muscular endurance and strength. The program will begin with lower weights and higher repetitions to create a solid conditioning base for the muscles. Then, a transition from this conditioning base into strength by using heavier weights and less reps as the weeks progress will occur. Throughout the length of the Cycling Programs, the manipulation of the sets and repetitions for each exercise will be based on periodization concepts that involve changing the intensity and the volume of the workouts. The starting point of the program is based on an initial fitness level. With feedback, the actual progression of the program will follow the body's unique adaptation process to exercise. Fine tune the program to include all the exercises that feel the best.

Fitness Ball Training for Golf

Model-golf-swing.gifNate-@-Gilman-2.jpg
Won't be long now Golf Athletes and Warriors, when some of you will be hitting the links. Before you attempt that first 300 yard drive or 50 foot putt, make sure you are conditioned properly to not only perform at your highest level, but to avoid many of the possible nagging injuries and ailments that many suffer at times playing the game. Sign up today for one of our Golf strength and conditioning programs to help you hit it long and straight all Spring and Summer long. Now here's our pal Susan with today's guest article:

Fitness Ball Training for Golf

by Susan Hill

There are many training tools available to help achieve better balance in your golf swing. The most effective way to improve balance is by training the core musculature. Any time you put yourself in an unstable environment through the use of balance pads, fitness balls, or various other balance training aids, you increase your body's awareness and balance. As golfers make their way through the exercise continuum they will progress from simple to more complex exercises. Fitness balls are an effective training tool for increasing strength, improving joint and body stability and increasing joint flexibility. The ball's round surface allows activation of the core stabilizer muscles. The unstable surface forces the body to adapt from moment to moment producing better balance, coordination between muscles and, ultimately, greater stability.

It can be suitable for people of all ages and activity levels because there are many progressions for each exercise. It can effectively and safely work essentially every muscle of the human body through a full range of motion with or without external resistance. The body's core is the foundation for all movement, so strong arms and legs without proportional core strength is counterproductive.

The fitness ball is a great way to make even the simplest exercises more complex, improve coordination and engage smaller muscles, which are chiefly responsible for balance and stability. Your chest, abs, back and glutes can achieve more functional, sport-specific strength with exercises of varying complexity.

Many golfers enjoy home based workout programs which allow them freedom away from the gym. Fitness balls are relatively inexpensive, versatile, and produce great results for your game. You can simply deflate the ball and take on trips so you don't miss workouts. Inflating a ball for use is simple and generally takes less than 5 minutes. Fitness balls are a natural training tool for most athletic endeavors and, in particular, golf.

Ways to Protect Female Athlete's Knees

Although there are certain considerations that must be accounted for in Female athlete and fitness Warrior programs, the basic protocols of injury prevention are the same. At US Sports Strength and Conditioning, we take a 9 month approach to long term injury prevention for a female athlete it would look like this:

The Women's Fitness Programs are designed to bring about a toning and shaping effect to the body by using lighter weights and higher repetitions. There is also a greater emphasis on the parts of the body that many females want to work on: hips, legs, buttocks, back of the arms etc.

One of the fundamentals in weight training is to not train the same bodypart on consecutive days. So, for these 3 Day Programs, take a day off in between each training session. However, the Consecutive Training Day Programs allow for grouping 3 training days any way one likes, depending on schedule.

The starting point of the workout is based on an initial fitness level. With feedback, the actual progression of the program will follow the body's unique adaptation process to exercise.
Fine tune the program to include all the exercises that feel best! To maximize the reduction of body fat, it is recommended to involve some cardiovascular exercise in the weekly exercise routine. Just choose one of the programs that has the cardio built right in. Have fun and get into the shape of your life!
This first training cycle (above) would prepare her to train for her sport of choice:


 
Sports Specific Workouts
The Sports Specific Programs are designed to give people an exercise program tailored to the demands of their chosen sporting activities. All sports, from Golf to Football, have specific movements and physical demands that can be improved with proper training. The knowledge and experience that goes into each of these sports specific programs is what makes them so effective.

The most important attribute of any quality training program is injury prevention. Knowing how to start a program is the first step. These Sports Specific Programs provide injury prevention by first establishing a strength and conditioning base. The sets, repetitions, exercise prescription, and actual weight of the programs are based off an initial fitness level and specific strength to bodyweight ratio's. With simple feedback, the progression of the program will follow the body’s unique adaptation process to exercise.

Whether the goal is performance enhancement or simply the enjoyment of participation in a favorite activity, these Sports Specific Programs can and will provide great results!
Then during her season she would keep her joints and muscles strong, and even get stronger as the season went along by doing one of our Strength and Power Programs:


The Strength and Power Programs were designed to maximize the body's ability to generate strength. There will also be a certain amount of muscle mass developed through the stimulus of using progressively heavier weights!

Throughout the length of the Strength and Power programs, the manipulation of the sets and repetitions for each exercise will be based on periodization concepts that involve changing the intensity and the volume of the workout.

The Strength and Power EXPRESS Programs are for those people short on time that still want a very effective workout. An EXPRESS Program will give you most of the benefits of the regular programs, but will take less time each day to complete. It will not change the primary emphasis of the program, it simply reduces the number of assistance exercises for the calves, forearms and neck muscle groups.
The Strength and Power ADVANCED Programs will really push you physically. Make sure to pay high attention to recovery processes such as eating quality foods and keeping the body properly hydrated. Sleeping at least 8 hours per night is also key. And, stretching or massage both before and after the workout is also vital. This will help to stimulate passive blood flow to the muscles aiding the removal of metabolic waste products. Crank it up!

And now the science behind the US Sports Strength and Conditioning Programs

Ways to Protect Women's Knees
WASHINGTON (AP) - It took just one wrong jump, and women's basketball star Rebecca Lobo was on the floor in agony, yet another victim of a torn knee ligament called the ACL.
The very day Lobo was writhing in pain last week, doctors were meeting to figure out how to battle a growing problem: Women are far more susceptible to this debilitating knee injury than men. It's not just a risk for professional female athletes, but for high school and college teams, and even women who like a little weekend skiing, soccer or hoops.
Anterior cruciate ligament injuries are notorious because they're so painful and can require months of treatment and rehabilitation. But they also can predispose people to serious knee arthritis later in life, said Dr. Joan McGowan of the National Institutes of Health. The good news: There are some ways women can protect their knees, lowering the risk of injury by strengthening their hamstrings and learning to crouch properly while jumping, concluded a consensus conference sponsored by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.
AthletesThe Fat Burning WorkoutPolice, Fire, Military > Warriors > The SKLZ Workout Of The Week
Now doctors' quest is to alert women. "These injuries affect young people, and can affect the rest of their lives," said Dr. Letha Griffin, team physician at Georgia State University, who organized the meeting. "We really need to ... help the public know that there are injury prevention techniques." Her message: "If I'm doing jumping, pivoting, cutting sports, I really need to look into some of these prevention techniques."
Inside the knee, two ligaments pass each other in the shape of a cross, connecting the upper and lower leg bones. The anterior cruciate ligament is the one in front, and it's important in pivoting. Many sports fans connect ACL injuries to football's crunching hits. But experts say most ACL tears actually are noncontact injuries - and studies show women suffer from them about five times more than men.
ACL injuries are particularly common with lots of jumping, quick deceleration and pivoting, like in basketball, soccer and skiing. But recreational athletes who run, take boxing classes, even do step aerobics can suffer, too, said McGowan. Scientists are studying everything from hormones to anatomy to explain the gender discrepancy. But neuromuscular factors seem to play the biggest role, and that's where women can lower the risk, Griffin said.
Hamstrings, muscles behind the thigh, relieve stress on the ACL when the knee bends. If your hamstrings are too weak, they may not protect the ACL. Men's hamstrings typically are 60 to 70 percent as strong as their quadriceps, muscles in front of the thigh. Women athletes may have strong quads, but they typically have significantly weaker hamstrings, said Dr. Thomas Lindenfeld of the Cincinnati Sportsmedicine Research and Education Foundation. So as they jump and pivot, the hamstrings don't do their job and the ACL tears. In addition, women jump and land differently than men - more straight-legged and flat-footed. Men bend their knees more as they jump and land, a built-in shock absorption.
The Cincinnati foundation created a program called Sportsmetrics to strengthen hamstrings and train female athletes to jump with their knees properly bent and body correctly aligned so they don't land off-balance. In a study of 1,200 high school athletes, the six-week program lowered girls' injury risk to equal boys' risk, Lindenfeld said. The foundation now sells a video that demonstrates the program, and dozens of high school and college teams already are adopting the techniques.
Also, many ski shops carry pamphlets describing Vermont research on avoiding ACL injuries. Scientists videotaped ski accidents to show positions where skiers got so off-balance that the stress tore an ACL. Teaching skiers about those risky positions and how to regain balance on the slopes can reduce injuries, Griffin said. This focus on injuries shouldn't scare off women - exercise is key to good health and American women don't exercise enough, stressed McGowan, who led a related NIH meeting last week on women and sports.
But learning to prevent injuries in professional athletes could translate to a more fit general population, she said. It's important to know "this is the kind of thing amenable to training."
