Resistance Training Tips for Athletes

In recent decades Resistance Training has been viewed and marketed to dramatically aid Athletes in becoming better Athletes at their sport(s) of choice.  But does it?

Sure resistance training has aided many athletes into becoming bigger, stronger, sometimes even faster but in a strange paradox no one can conclusively prove without a doubt that resistance training actually does make an athlete 'play' better. BUT, there is more than ample proof to the contrary. Suprised?

Personally, I operate, and train my athletes under the belief that resistance training can and will make for a better athlete, as long as certain criteria are met.

If these criterial are not followed rigidly, then the odds are resistance training will adversely effect an athlete’s ability to perform on the field of play, as well as open up said athlete to potential injury concerns.

It is also imperative that an athlete knows the true muscular requirements of his or her sport and not be tricked by commercial interests into becoming 'too muscular'. Every sport requires unique demands of an athlete's muscluture. The muscle requirements of a pro wrestler will vary from that of a soccer player, baseball player, skateboarder, hockey player and so on.

Simply put, know your sport, they all have different requirements. -JJ

Resistance Training Technique Basics

• Correct technique in resistance training is imperative for building of muscle and fat burning goals.
• Failure to perform an exercise correctly will not only lower results, but increase risk of injury.
• If you can NOT move the weight correctly, reduce the load until you are able to move it properly.
• Never compromise the quality of movement for a greater weight.
• Unless you have medical concerns, lift “Raw” meaning: no straps, no wraps or belts as each will artificially brace the body and allow a weight heavier than the supporting muscles can handle.
• Use only the weight that you can perform the move PERFECTLY.
