Reply To: Non-specific training
This is a tough one for me. I totally understand where Rushall is coming from & using the brain imagery in the DVD’s helped as well. I get that being able to go from doing 50 pushups to 100 does NOT translate into faster times BUT…
The world of exercise physiology & training styles have come a long way. It would just seem that a certain amount of neuro-muscular training, explosive movements/plyometrics & certain mobility/flexibility/balance & coordination type training would be useful.
I am also aware of a study stating that static stretches reduce athletic performance as well as creating ligament laxity in a swimmer would be a bad thing!!
Seeing as I am beginning our USRPT program next week….I’ll probably start with just the pool work (as I have a lot to do there) and maybe I’ll ad it later…..we’ll see
