As more content is added each month to the new ALTIS 360° platform, we will be keeping you updated with what information you can expect to see alongside the already huge amount of resources available. We are committed to giving coaches, therapists and athletes all over the world the most recent and relevant information available from all our education events throughout the world.
What you will find this month:
Kelly Starett: T-spine, C-spine and the Shoulder Trinity:
On his recent visit to Phoenix, Kelly takes us through the philosophical and physiological importance of the interplay between our back, shoulder and neck. He gives us the context of why these areas are so important for human performance, but also for the health of our athletes.
“We should be looking at the hygiene of the movement of our athletes… What we start to see, is when we don’t have benchmarks of function around what I think are some of the primary engines, the hips and shoulders, we start to see a lot of compensations in the T-spine and C-spine”
Shawn Myszka: The Science and Art of Mastering Movement for Sport.
We too often look at movement with athletes we work with as ‘good enough’. Shawn gives us a timely reminder of how, and why we should always be trying to get closer to the the goal of mastering movement. As much as it is a preventive measure for injury, he empowers coaches that optimal movement will also lead to optimum performance.
“Athletes come to you for one reason, and one reason only… and it’s not to get a bigger squat. Every path leads through the optimisation and mastery of movement or skill, respective of your sport.”
Wynn Gmitroski: Endurance Physiology I
Coach to multiple Olympic medalists, Wynn’s presentation covers a range of topics in an open question forum. Imparting some of the massive amount of knowledge and experience he has as a middle distance and distance coach, he answers questions about his approach to periodisation, overtraining, training zones and recovery strategies for performance in the longer events.
“Training without adequate recovery – mainly coping with fatigue – produces minimal training benefit to performance and has overall negative impacts on specific adaptation and movement efficiency. Always attempt to integrate the technique, mental output, feel and quality of running that you desire to feel in a race.”
Also available will be the poolside chats from the latest Apprentice Coaching Program in November 2016, where you will find discussions from our staff and participants at ALTIS on:
– athlete cueing
– mobility for warm ups
– athlete resiliency
– training density and intensity in winter
– feedback and monitoring for athletes
– acceleration training for distance athletes
– networking for an elite training environment
