My personal trainer recently posted her frustration on how so many trainers record their clients during the workout of the day while allowing bad form to continue on the video posted on social media.
If she only knew what I was thinking at that very moment...
I was just watching a video from a martial arts feed with the same exact thing.
The challenge with our bodies is that our brain does not execute the same signals for movement in the same exact order in each repetition. This is why we practice: to teach our brains to adapt to minimize these variables as much as possible.
But you may be missing out on training longevity (and keeping student retention) if you're only looking for the final position of the task, such as the actual kick in a jump kick technique.
Watch this excerpt from our Warm-ups inResONEnce video on how to regress and assess knee stability in your jump kick landings.
Saquon Barkley exited with a knee injury from the Week 2 game between the New York Football Giants Chicago Bears. Pending tomorrow's MRI, the news broke out that it is likely an ACL tear.
Why is everyone getting injured in Week 2?
Many in the Twitterverse are quick to suggest that the lack of the routine preseason activities led to the players not being in optimal condition to play in such demanding conditions. So far, Saquon Barkley and Nick Bosa are the likely-ACL-tears from this year's Week 2, but that live-running injury tracker just keeps on growing...
I think the NFL's coaches and athletic trainers have a lot of self-reflecting and investigating to do...
Didn't Saquon have a history of ankle sprains?
Yes, he did. He exited Week 3 in 2019 with a high ankle sprain injury.
Here's the scary part: He's had the same on-and-off ankle sprain injury since his years at Penn State on his right ankle.
Which knee did he injure today that is suspected with an ACL tear? His right knee.
How did he injure his knee today? Non-contact, with a defensive player applying external force that caused him to push on the right leg with knee valgus forces.
Ankle plantar flexion (to push off the ground).
Right tibia external rotation.
Right femur internal rotation.
When was the last time these qualities were assessed from a professional player with this history of injuries?
