Justin Moore is the Master Instructor and Head Performance Coach at Parabolic Performance and Rehab in New Jersey. Justin specializes in helping elite college football players prepare for the NFL Combine and for their Pro Days. Moore played football at Fairleigh Dickinson University, suffering three ACL tears in three seasons. During that time, he developed a love for strength and conditioning and Olympic weightlifting, which led to a career in the sports performance field.
Moore graduated from FDU with a bachelor’s degree in communications and a master’s degree in sports administration with a specialization in coaching. While in school, he completed an internship with the strength and conditioning department at Seton Hall University. He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the NSCA and an expert in Postural Restoration (PRI) Institute principles.
In this episode Justin gets into his beliefs on the technical issues in sprinting. He gives a detailed look into techniques rooted within the thorax and diaphragm. He also breaks down asymmetry in sprinting and human movement, as well as right and left leg differences and how they fit with what he does in the weight room with his athletes.
In this podcast, Coach Justin Moore and Joel discuss:
- Lessons learned from his most recent NFL Combine training group.
- Training for maximal strength in correlation with speed and plyometric training.
- The importance of asymmetry in athletic movements.
- Creating a balance between impingement-based strategies in lifting and sport movement.
- Improving the entire sprint instead of just certain aspects that don’t make the time better overall.
