An Import Aspect Of Training

Every coach is concerned with fatigue, vision and coordination. It is addressed through strength and conditioning and skill development, as well as countless hours of meetings and teachings.

We full well know that sleep regulates everything from alertness, to hormone levels, body temperature, the immune system, digestion, cognitive function and our response to physical activity. A strength and conditioning coach knows the value of sleep yet, once an athlete leaves their premise they have little control of their behavior and can only provide proper training advice. If a coach could get an athlete to go to bed exactly when they should and sleep exactly how long they should their performance and growth would be exemplary.

Myelin is a fatty substance that surrounds the signal transmitting tail of our neurons, it is often referred to as the brain’s insulating material. A deficiency of this substance leads to cognitive disorders and contributes to loss of coordination, fatigue, vision impairment and more. Oligodendrocytes are non neural cells whose main function are to provide support and insulation to these axons or tails.

When we sleep the activity increases in genes that are involved in producing oligodendrocytes, that is, coating neurons with myelin. Cellular repair is an ongoing process an occasional all-nighter does not disrupt the process, yet constantly disrupting what should be normal sleep patterns does and will without question have an adverse affect on performance.

To be an effective coach allow your athletes to get the most out of what you ask them to do by devising your program whereby the athlete has flexible training hours. Flexible training hours means an athlete can regulate their sleep patterns around the non-athletic activities that all student-athletes have.

Closed And Open Chain

Open kinetic chain exercises of the lower limb are movements, where the distal segment is unloaded and free to move. The opposite is true of closed kinetic chain exercises, whereby  there is enough resistance to prohibit free motion.

Closed kinetic chain exercises are movements such as squats, Pendulum Squat Pro, leg presses and lunges, while open chain exercises are actions like leg curls, leg extensions and the Pendulum Reverse Glute Ham.

The kinetic chain can be understood as interrelated joints and body parts working with one another during motion. This creates a chain of events that affects the movement of neighboring joints and segments.

The advantage of open chain movements is that they tend to be better at isolating muscle and often are selected for specific rehabilitation and used to accentuate performance. While closed chain movements in general would be classified as more functional and closely approximating movements that are used in sport and daily life.

2-for-2 Method

Some trainers, coaches and athletes use what is called the 2-for-2 Method for increasing training load. The rule is if the trainee can perform two or more repetitions over one’s ‘repetition goal’ in the last set of an exercise, for two consecutive workouts, the weight is added for that particular exercise the next training session.
