When it comes to athlete development & sport performance training I think there’s a big gap between the exercises being prescribed, and the reasoning behind them.
It doesn’t matter how creative you are if you don’t understand the 𝐖𝐇𝐘 to what you’re doing!
One of the most important things a trainer or strength & conditioning coach needs to understand is that we are 𝐍𝐎𝐓 on court trainers!
That is a whole other profession... read that twice so it really sinks in.
Guys like Stan Remy, Chris Johnson, Chris Brickley, are guys that players go to and hire to have them enhance the on court portion of their game... not us! Ok, now back to my point. When I design sports performance and development drills, I do so with the goal of developing the athlete to help them become more efficient in his or hers movement patterns that pertain to their craft. Things like improving their sensory and cognitive reaction, as well as increasing their ability to move in all 3
planes of motion the correct way.
My job is to make their bodies and mind become and work more efficient at the end of their time with me than when they arrived. ⠀
After their muscular and skeletal system becomes a aligned “PHASE 1” then my focus shifts to make them stronger “PHASE 2” once their bodies have achieved optimal strength for the high volumes of force that I will be applying in “PHASE 3” I then begin to program design the develop work that that will teach the athlete to move the way the human body was designed to.
Educating them, while developing proper mechanics on things like how to decelerate and accelerate properly. How to
take-off, jump and land properly. I’m looking at things like heel strike, and their ability to control their COM “center of mass control.” The list goes on and on.
When I design a workout like this, I’m observing every movement while keeping the objective and goal in my mind so after each rep and set I know exactly where the athlete excelled or failed. From there I then understand how to modify the movement so I can explain to the athlete how we need to make it better. ⠀⠀ #athletedevelopment#sportperformance

HOW TO MANAGE EMOTIONS DURING COMPETITION.
STEP 3️⃣. ANTICIPATE MENTALITY
Now you have covered:
Step 1️⃣. what is within your control & outside of your control? Where are you focusing your energies?
Step 2️⃣. what are you feeling? Before during & after? What are your triggers?
Step 3️⃣ is working to develop an ‘anticipate mentality’. THIS IS WHERE YOU FOCUS YOUR MIND ON THE NEXT FEW SECONDS OF PLAY.
Being one step ahead gives you much more control👌🏽 than you realise & enables you to foresee any emotional triggers 🚫 BEFORE they happen. This means you can best prepare yourself ✅ for what’s to come.
All great athletes play slightly in the future.
DM me ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬆️⬆️⬆️if you have any questions ❓❓❓about how to handle your emotions during competition. Keep your eyes peeled for STEP 4.

Another stability drill for my athletes 🙌🙌 @vertigo@xavier. Stability is a part of athletic training that is often ignored or undervalued!!
📋To perform this exercise correctly, it is vital that athletes find their balance first before jumping off the pad. Also, the ground contact time should be minimized, chest up and stay as tall as possible with slightly bent knees. As a start, the jumps should be small and controlled 💥, with a focus on rhythm 🧞♂️ and little details in form. Finally, walk around to stay warm and repeat when athletes feel physically and mentally ready.
NOTE: any balance pad is fine
Maintains balance is critical to reduce wasted efforts. Improving stability pays a huge role over a long match especially since mistakes are often made when athletes lose their composure under mental and physical fatigue. More so, better balance of movements going in and out of corners on-court, or reacting to an offensive player’s change of direction on the field 🔥, will positively improve agility and reduce chances for injuries caused from missteps such as rolled ankles or sprained knees❗️
From personal experience, when I stopped doing these for a couple of months, my injuries returned and I had to retrain myself again🤔
Comment 💯 if you’re gonna try this!!!
I’ll be sure to post all of my bruises‼️ I hear this a lot “Jess how is your neck sore⁉️ Shouldn’t your neck and back be perfect since you’re a #chiropractor ⁉️” ... Well ... Yes? In a perfect world? But... I pretty much became a chiropractor to encourage my bad habits of playing #sports until I’m like 110 years old... 🤷🏽♀️ #sorrynotsorry -
Another Saturday session this morning at 6am! Happy to get back to the grind after taking a few days out.
Comfortably hitting the 60kg bench now, hopefully get another plate on there over the next week and set a new PB!
Repping my new @solarathletic stringer best this morning too, a must have for chest day!
How to avoid coming home with extras that don't serve you.
I have always struggled with the concept of shopping for "the essentials". Everytime I go to a supermarket I am tempted by the bright shiny crap that isn't real food, but in the moment it is definitely "needed". I go in thinking I need 5 items and come out with 10! This not only obliterates the weekly budget, it also encourages a "treating" mentality that can turn into a very unhealthy practice very quickly, especially if sugar is involved.
So I came up with ways to stop the crap coming into my home before I opened the packet. If this is you too you may like to try these out:
1. Shop only around the outside of the supermarket. This is where the fresh stuff is.
2. Buy foods from a green grocer or fresh markets rather than a supermarket. Less tempting crap food on offer and more fresh and locallly grown produce.
3. Use a shopping list and only take enough money for those items.
4. Do click and collect from supermarkets so it's all done for you. You just collect your goods between a certain time and there is no chance of temptation.
5. Online shopping and delivery.... with a list you stick to either at a wholefoods store or supermarket.
Let me know how you go!

If you train for long enough, plateaus are inevitable! However, there are things you can do to avoid/overcome these plateaus.
The whole idea with strength training is to impose a stimulus on the body and the body then adapts to be able to cope with this stimulus (i.e. you get stronger). If you keep doing the same thing for too long, the body adapts to what you’re doing and you will no longer see improvements. Too many people show up to the gym and just do the same thing every day/week and wonder why they’re not getting anywhere! You need to regularly alter the stimulus you impose on the body!
Ways we can alter the stimulus we place on the body include; altering the load, changing exercises, changing rep schemes, changing the rest periods, changing the tempo, or it can be as simple as changing your grip or altering your stance, etc. Altering any of these variables will change the imposed stimulus and therefore force the body to adapt to a new stimulus, leading to continual progression!
We generally program in 4-6 week blocks. This means people will focus on specific exercises for 4-6 weeks (usually including one deload week), then at the end of the block, we re-evaluate and make the necessary changes for the next block. These changes don’t have to be massive (i.e. grip or stance changes), but continually imposing new, challenging stimuli on the body is the key to continual progression!
The other factor to this is engagement! Anyone will get bored if they are doing the exact same thing over and over again and not progressing! Continual progress (no matter how small); will go a long way to keeping people engaged!

Speed Mechanics Drills: Acceleration Wall Drive #fitztechtips
Acceleration is a critical aspect of speed development because your ability to transition from a still or slowly moving position to top end speed is dependent on your ability to accelerate. At Fitz, we use a variety of training methods to improve acceleration like resisted/assisted sprints, sled pulls, prowler push, plyometrics and strength training. We use acceleration wall drives to teach athletes how to develop and drill the correct posture and leg action for acceleration. In addition, these drills help to improve body control, rhythm and impulse production to improve speed. *Note: my form is not perfect, but hopefully you get the point!
Key Coaching Points:
1) Maintain your body at a 45 degree angle
2) Keep a straight line from head to heel
3) Use a piston like action to forcefully drive (flex) and extend knees
4) Focus on pulling toes up to shins (dorsi flexion) during knee drive
5) Focus on exploding through the extension of your hip and knee landing on the ball to mid foot
To ensure you are getting proper antioxidants, make sure to eat five colors per day. This is by no means a comprehensive list, what fruits and veggies would you add?
Yellow : bananas, peppers, lemons, squash
Blue : blue berries
Purple : egg plant, purple potatoes
Orange: oranges, grapefruit, peppers, carrots
Red : apples, strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes
Green : apples, cucumbers, peppers, spinach
Black: black berries
Change of direction: the ability to change direction is a critically important factor in rugby, in both attacking and defending situations. 🏉
Creating more force and increasing the rate 📈at which you develop that force plays a massive role.
We strongly encourage our members to focus on this area by improving all strength qualities. All done without a speed ladder in sight!!!!🙂
DM us if you want more information about how to improve your agility and change of direction.👇

False 9 are the odd ones in a system because they're not actually a registered position, on paper, they start in the striker position, but when the game is played, they drop deeper into Midfield but also do the job of a striker, swipe through the graphics to see the full Analysis of the position

Length and Strength 🤩
The hamstrings are a usual muscle group that are neglected, but amazingly are one of the most injury ridden groups 😲🌚
A study by Schache et al (2012) studied the mechanics of the hamstring during sprinting. Due to the purest form of stretch-shortening cycle present when athletes sprint, the biomechanical load was found to be greatest at terminal swing (when hamstrings lengthen). Here there is peak musculotendon strain, peak force, and much negative work is performed. It is suggested that during terminal swing in the stride cycle when biarticular hamstrings are at greatest injury risk.
These two drills train the same muscle groups but at different tempos emphasising different contractions, the first is easier (but you have to trust that the ball doesn’t explode in your face - not my fault if it does 👀) and requires a faster eccentric and concentric contraction. The second is just really hard 😂 a slow controlled eccentric emphasis, with a pause to remove the SSC, followed by a tough concentric from a lengthened position. The beauty of this is depending on strength levels, fatigue etc, you can modify the amount of assistance from the ball 🤗
_____ @crusader.strength and I got playing with these last weekend when I popped up to Birmingham to interview him in my next ebook- it’s going to be a good one 😅
