Mastering The Frontal Plane For Athleticism And Optimal Fitness

Mastering The Frontal Plane For Athleticism And Optimal Fitness

As strength coaches one thing that enables us to advance a trainee, or athlete is being able to identify weaknesses. It’s sort of counterintuitive because even though we’re called “strength coaches” in many cases the ability for us┬áto investigate and identify weaknesses is what makes us successful. It’s sort of like we’re the Sherlock Holmes detectives of the iron game!

Maximum Strength: The Benefits Of Anti-Pattern Strength

So what is anti-pattern strength? In short an anti-pattern movement is one that often encompasses ┬áhaving to brace the body at it’s center mass while maintaining a neutral spine position. The movements of flexion, rotation, and extension are kept in check by maintaining the braced neutral position of the spine during an anti-pattern exercise. In short anti-pattern is about resisting movement through the act of bracing and controlling the body during a given exercise.

The Invisible Man: The Plight Of The Strength Coach

Over my 15 year career I’ve had a great deal of experience with recognizing the bread and butter of what makes an athlete, or trainee successful. The thing is that I’ve always explained to parents, trainees, and other sport specific coaches (the coaches of the specific sport being played) that my job is to not specifically make the individual a better baseball player, a better football player, or a better fighter. My job is to make that individual a better athlete…period! By doing this they will excel at their relative sport, or physical life demands.

I remember hearing this quote once that was referencing how to come out on top during competition. It was in reference to being successful. The quote said “You only have to work a little harder than the next guy. You only have to work a little smarter than the next guy.” I don’t recall the origin of this quote, but despite its obvious nature the truth is very loud in this statement.

The key to being able to make the biggest gains both in training and in life is to devote yourself to a cause and to not let up from pursuing that cause regardless of what setbacks, attacks, and downfalls you may encounter.
