Sport is Rarely Slow

If you’ve been jonesing for some good ol’ fashioned strength and conditioning talk, look no further than this week’s episode with Dr Tim Suchomel. While The Crew questions him about the appropriate application of power and velocity based training, Tim breaks down why it’s important to progress from strength to speed work. “Sports are not played slowly” How might a coach develop mental toughness, weed out the weak players, AND condition their athletes? The answer used to be as simple as 100 yard repeats until you start seeing the white buffalo. Now, there’s a much more responsible approach to accomplish those things. Finally, discover the future of exercise science technology. A bodysuit that recognizes muscle activation might just be the ultimate bio feedback.
