Deceleration Progressions from Squat-Lunge to Sprint

09. Nov 2019

DECELERATION in court and field sports is important when executing certain skills (e.g. a receiver rapidly decelerating to create space from a defender to receive a pass) and to change direction.

If we optimize on-field movement efficiency, we can maximize athletic performance.

  • Coming to a common ground: To make an athlete better in their specific sport conditions & demands.
  • Understanding the importance of DECEL in sports movement: perfect movement execution and optimize motor potential, concurrently!
  • DECEL movement mastery.
  • Training means and methods specific to DECEL.

“THE ESSENCE OF SPORT COMPETITION ACTIVITY IS THE MOVEMENTS OF THE HUMAN BODY”

Deceleration is the missing link to obtain the transfer that we are after.

UNDERSTANDING DECEL - THE NEED FOR THIS NEW FOCUS

  • To put the athlete in an effective and efficient position for reacceleration; Sometimes in preparation for a directional change and other times to execute a sport skill.

MAIN OBJECTIVE

  • Develop the DECEL abilities (both motor potential and technical skills) needed to tolerate the rapid power absorption that occurs during explosive braking movements

  • What happens if we don’t?

  1. Technical inefficiency
  2. Lack of movement control
  3. Increased injury likelihood

BEFORE WE CAN EXERT WE MUST BE ABLE TO ABSORB

Maximal Velocity Complex Training Session

  • Scheduled sessions that begin with General Physical Preparedness (GPP) training.
  • This session is focused on increasing power output in both the lineal and lateral planes with the use of both maximal velocity and complex training methods.
  • As with all athletic movements incorporating the creation and transference of kinetic energy the key is to maintain the newly created stored kinetic energy throughout movement patterns with little to no ‘leakage’ of energy thus improving power output across all movement planes.
  • Attention is given to the correct mental cues to enhance the athletes power output with every ‘contact’ or movement
  • Incremental advancements in the degree of exercise/movement difficulty dependant upon athlete ability (individualised to suit the athlete’s athletic ability)
  • The Complex Training component is completed whereby the athlete conducts one set of the resistance movements followed immediately by one set of the plyometric movements e.g. 3 squats, 3 jump squats, 3 minutes rest, 3 squats, 3 jump squats (with minimal recovery between the squats and jump squats).
