Injury Prevention

  • ¨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.

1. Neck 

Example: 4 Way Neck (Front, Side, Side, Back)

  

2. Shoulders

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

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
