Speed Science

This is a video series on top speed. The videos will cover physics, biomechanics, sprinting technique, and training strategies. The first video covers the physics of top speed and the […]

Jumper’s Knee

TESTIMONIAL: “The stretches and exercises he shows to avoid and/or recover from the jumper’s knee are the best. I had a really bad jumper’s knee, but 1 month later I […]

The Truth About Westside Dynamic Effort

Let’s talk about lifting light weight as part of your strength training regimen. I recently got into a discussion (argument) with a couple people, which revealed to me that there […]

Jump Science University: Muscle Tension

The video series below covers biomechanical and physiological factors that influence muscle tension. Along the way you get a good amount of university level anatomy and physiology education. With this […]

The Explosive Performance Window and Periodization

This post is just a video regarding the design of training over the long term.

Jump Squats and Hex Bar Deadlift

One of the things that drives me crazy is the misinterpretation of research results. I have most often seen this in the case of measuring physics outputs like force, impulse, […]

The Bilateral Deficit and Unilateral Training

What the heck is the bilateral deficit? Watch the video.

There may be some skepticism or confusion regarding the bilateral deficit. People may wonder why they cannot 1-arm bench press more […]

Long-Term Training Goals

The goal of this article is to provide some long term goals for athletes to pursue in their training for athletic enhancement. With all the various types of training, set/rep […]

Biarticulate Muscles and Synergy

When looking at muscle function, people often look at one joint, consider the muscles that act on that joint, and identify the muscles that perform opposite actions as antagonists to […]

How to Get Eccentric Strength

Does lowering the weight slowly focus on eccentric strength?

First, does specific eccentric strength even exist? We classify muscle contractions as eccentric, isometric, and concentric. But physiologically is there any difference? […]
