- ¨Intertwine injury prevention into workouts
- ¨Identify potential areas of need and work to decrease chance of injury in that area!
- ¨Train the Body in Balance
Coaches, There are a few movements I would like to recommend. I personally intertwine them into my training sessions.
Example: 4 Way Neck (Front, Side, Side, Back)
Example: Shoulder Protraction/Retraction
Example: 4 Way External Shoulder Rotation
Example: Band Rear Deltoid
Hips & Glutes
Example: Balance Ball or Med Ball Bucks (Hips down & Hips up) Glute activation
Example: Hip Stability – Lateral Band Walks
SHOULDER – OSCILLATORY RESISTANCE TRAINING – Holding the bar in the center with one hand and shaking it, causing the bar to vibrate rapidly. The hand and arm are held in various positions, offering a remarkable effective ways to strengthen and condition the muscle fibers and sensory receptors of the shoulder joint. The goal is to train in all different planes (Frontal, Sagital & Transverse) hitting all the minor muscles surrounding the shoulder joint. (Note: We are trying to train the minor muscles of this joint for stabilization) In this picture we are using the Collegiate Series Body Bar Flex
