Over a series of reviews, I will try to dig dip and provide you with practical takeaways in terms of physiology and the demands of a certain sport. First up is tennis. We will have a look over elite-level male and female tennis as well as how demands change when we analyze lower levels of play. Tennis is a sport based on unpredictability. The unpredictability of point length, shot selection, strategy, match duration, weather, and the opponent all influence the complex physiological aspects of tennis play.
I must confess I was just recently converted into using isometric protocols first for my training sessions and later for athletes. I do know ISOs exist from a stone age but I was somehow reluctant to use them as I didn’t want to look like Charles Atlas from the early 20th century.
Must admit I used to think ISO’s don’t have a place in this modern time! How wrong was I. Ronnie Coleman would say: “Yeah baby”.
There are plenty of tips out there on how to plan and progress your training sessions. Based on different variables and theories.
If I can be a bit sarcastic, then majority of them is based on what the coaches/athletes are seining it on a YouTube (Facebook and Instagram too). I named this “YouTube periodisation”. Don’t lough, this is real deal and I am sure this is most used periodisation scheme these days. All the other ways of planning are way behind this one. Who cares for block, linear, undulating, conjugate, top to bottom approach, whatever named periodisation if he/she can easily access YouTube from anywhere on the world and just watch new exercise and add it to our plan.
Escalating Density Training (EDT): How to test, perform and analyze your training
Recently I posted about my training on social media and I got a few questions about it. So here it is in more detail.
I am known as a numbers coach and trying to be based on science. But I admit, I rose up through “bro-science” and I don’t think that is all that bad. Let me explain “bro-science”: somebody is performing one type of athletic training, let’s just say lifting in a gym, and he is doing a workout that is known just to him. At, the end of some period, he got some positive results out of it (No shit, it happens) and he claims that this is THE workout, and he is the special one among all the others.
Dr. Inigo Mujika: Learning from the worlds best in sport science
As many of you know, a few days ago I was on a lecture by dr. Mujika from Spain. He prefers to be acknowledged as Basque. Professor who introduced him to us, said that he was asking a lot of questions regarding the independence of Slovenia during the ride from airport to faculty.
Continuing from my previous article on Unstable Surface Training (UST) (Click for Part 1 of this series) with practical applications as myself serving as test subject. In this second part, I have looked towards what science has to say on this controversial topic at hand!
Training on unstable surface and why this is not good option for sport performance training
Citius, Altius, Fortius is an Olympic motto that mean faster, higher, stronger. There is hidden meaning of why and how to train. We should strive for getting stronger, faster and jump higher to get better.
