I was just reading Vern's leg circuit post, followed by an article by a noted ACL injury researcher. The ACL article spoke of girls using a faulty quadricep dominent movement pattern, with the need to "teach them to activate their glutes & hamstrings more. Interesting, the recent strength coach roundtable I recently mentioned pointed to the same, but in all athletes. I wonder what running, cutting, and landing mechanics would like if the researchers injected a nerve block into the femoral nerve? Do these athletes need to be taught to fire their "posterior chain" better, or is this pattern a result of a poor leg strength foundation/progression?
Listen, do yourself a favor and save Vern's post to your hard drive:
