⚠️Earthquake depth drop⤵️#theextra10 • 🛬Being able to land effectively is vital to sports performance. Landing mechanics play a major roll in speed, neuromuscular coordination, and injury prevention • ⚡️Speed: Improving landing mechanics won’t necessarily make you run faster. However, it will improve how quickly you can get from point A, to point B. This is a result of improving the stabilization phase. The stabilization phase is the phase before the acceleration phase. It entails regaining your balance, situating your biomechanics, and reacting to any stimulus. Essentially, the sooner you get stable, the sooner you can begin the acceleration phase. Which means the sooner you can get to where you need to to go • 🧠Neuromuscular coordination: Counteracting the offset load and earthquake set up requires intense neuromuscular activity. The body is forced to engage muscles asymmetrically. This tends to be challenging and awkward at first, simply because we’re not use to it. Yet, interestingly enough, this type of engagement is far more common in “real game” situations than conventional bilateral engagement. You can note the neuromuscular improvement very quickly, because the second set will be much easier than the first. Why is that? Well you didn’t become magically “stronger“, but you did in fact improve your neuromuscular connection with the muscles responsible for stabilizing the load. Consequently/indirectly, making you stronger, just not in the same way we tend to think about strength • 🚑Injury prevention: Being able to land effectively is one of the best ways to prevent injury. The forces acting on the body upon landing can be immense. Should the body not be conditioned to cope with these forces; the chance for injury sky rockets. This is a consequence of muscles not being strong enough, or neurologically coordinated enough, to decelerate the body upon landing. This results in joints, tendons, and ligaments taking the brunt of the force, as opposed to the muscles. The problem of course being they’re not meant to do that, and therefore, very likely to become injured in the process •

Points clés #

  • Activer son gainage avant de commencer l'exercice ;
  • Gardez votre genou dans l'axe de vos orteils ;
  • Partir depuis une box les pieds parallèles ;
  • Resserrez vos omoplates et plaquez la barre contre vos épaules ;
  • Atterrissez en faisant le moins de bruit possible ;
  • Activez votre gainage avant d'atterrir, sinon vous vous ferez emporter par la barre
