Training with flywheels works scientifically and you can place it into a program practically. This article will present the science behind the way the body remodels from specific flywheel training, and instruct you on using a flywheel system more beneficially.
Coaches working to help their athletes get better should use the best options available, and video analysis is one of them.

While profiling athletes is growing, the force-velocity profile is misunderstood greatly. Most programs address force-velocity demands from a general training design, but drilling down further is now possible and will benefit those who have limited time resources.
The force-velocity curve is misleading, as sprinting’s high velocity does not mean the forces involved are low. There are training factors unaffected by force-velocity that can improve performance; methods not directly related to force-velocity specific training can improve athlete profiles.
Weight lifts are more than just training to improve athletic power; they are part of the equation for improving discipline. While this article is a defense of the Olympic-style lifts, it’s also a template for coaches to rethink everything they do and realize what is possible in all sports with just a few exercises.
Vibration modalities can produce amazing results when used appropriately, but they can also waste a lot of time, money, and energy. Before you add a vibration technology or methodology to your coaching or sports therapy craft, Coach Valle takes you on a comprehensive dive into the science, shares his experience, and lists popular equipment and techniques for training and sports medicine.
Video is perhaps the most useful performance tool available to coaches, besides their senses and experience. However, to take advantage of all that video can offer, coaches may need to make these changes to their infrastructure, analysis, and techniques.
TMG is one of the most valuable muscle diagnostic tools and its use will raise the entire standard of performance by a sports support staff. Coaches committed to solving problems such as injuries and poor performance will naturally gravitate to what TMG can do for athletes.
