Below are some of the major points taken from the Pod Cast, Click on the link at the bottom to hear the entire Pod Cast.
- Economy is another word to describe efficiency.
- The 80/20 Rule-- 80% of results is derived from 20% of the input.
- Strength and conditioning, rehabilitation, etc. is about becoming efficient.
- The goal of astrength and conditioning coach, for example, is to put the athlete out on the field-- healthy, durable, and efficient.
- The concept of “more is better” is often incorrect, resulting in fatigue and bad mechanics-- instead, stoke the metabolism without insulting the mechanics.
- The Functional Movement Screen helps you with exercise efficiency.
- An example of a single exercise to do “for the rest of your life” to still achieve benefits: a front squat push press (combine a straight bar front squat with a push press)-- use the full squatting movement with a front load (all the way down, all the way back up to a standing position) and explode using the legs. With the knees locked, you can put more weight overhead than you can press, resulting in more weight overhead than what you could put there concentrically with your arms, allowing for a very beneficial eccentric lowering to the collar bone area.
- Analyze your exercises and delete some from an economy standpoint.
- Continually scrutinize what you are doing.
