The application of the scientific to the practical by way of learning through sharing; with the ultimate goal of better care & prevention of adolescent athletic injuries.
At one point the get up was a simple move. When I learned it you grabbed a weight plate, hugged it to your chest and had to stand up without touching the ground with your hand or shoulder. It was a "finisher" in that you did it at the end of a workout for one set. Now it's this ridiculous, choreographed, stylized contrivance.
JOe, Just read an article from the AVCA volleyball magazine about strength training. THe author states that a VB player needs 4-5 years of strength training before going to power training. Also he states that "jumping off boxes, throwing a medicine ball, or running through hoops are not strength training." It doesn't seem to add up just right in my mind. Would strength be gained if a progressive overload was introduced regardless if it were dumbbells or jumping?
Can you send me a link or something to the article?
It is the latests (January) issue of AVCA (American Volleyball Coaches Association) magazine. The article was written by Ken Kontor. I was unable to find the article on the AVCA website. I think it is too early to be archived.
