Fatigue, Part 5 – The Central Governor Theory

  The scientific information presented in the first four sections on the onset of fatigue during exercise (Part 1 Fatigue-Energetics, Part 2 Fatigue-Anaerobic Alactic Energy System, Part 3 Fatigue-Anaerobic Glycolytic Energy System, and Part 4 Fatigue-Aerobic Energy System) pointed out the importance of beginning each discussion on energy system metabolism and fatigue with basic knowledge…

How to Simplify Organizing Practice for Multiple Event Groups

If you’re a high school track coach, chances are you’re simultaneously in charge of a relatively large number of kids *and* more than one event group. Efficiently and effectively organizing practice for multiple event groups may be your greatest practice challenge. It’s frustrating to spend considerable lengths of timing planning and organizing practice specifics, only…

(Video) How *not* to get recruited by college coaches

It can be difficult for high school athletes, as well as their parents and coaches, to understand how to get recruited by college coaches. This leads to well meaning kids and adults engaging in behaviors so inappropriate and unappealing to college coaches, they lead to the athlete becoming entirely uncrecruitable.

Contrast Training Methods for Sprinters

Before I dive into the details for why sprinters and athletes should utilize this type of training, I’m going to first define what it is exactly.  Contrast Training was first introduced to me by Louie Simmons at Westside Barbell.  This type of training involves a “contrast” or some source of variable resistance as you perform…

Fatigue, Part 4 – The Aerobic Energy System

The scientific information presented in the first three sections on the onset of fatigue during exercise (Part 1 Fatigue–Energetics, Part 2 Fatigue–Anaerobic Alactic Energy System, and Part 3 Fatigue–Anaerobic Glycolytic Energy System) pointed out the importance of beginning each discussion on energy system metabolism with basic review of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and its role in…

Fatigue, Part 3 – The Anaerobic Glycolytic Energy System

Information presented in the first two sections on fatigue during exercise (Part 1 Fatigue-Energetics and Part 2 Fatigue-Anaerobic Alactic Energy System) pointed out the importance of beginning every discussion on energy system metabolism with basic knowledge of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and its role in muscle contraction.  Humans have advanced through natural selection using three metabolic…
