Athlete X posted a topic in Online LogbogFørst og fremmest velkommen til min logbog. Intentionen med denne logbog er ikke at komme med detaljerede beskrivelser af mine daglige træningspas, det gider jeg ikke. Formålet er at uploade film og billeder fra min træning og så en gang i mellem fortælle lidt om hvad jeg har lavet af træning på en given dag. Billeder og video fra træning bliver nu en smal sag eftersom at jeg har erhvervet mig en ny smart telefon med video og stilbillede kamera i med mulighed for direkte upload til fx MOL. Eftersom dette ikke er off-topic vil jeg gerne bibeholde en hvis anonymitet og jeg beder derfor folk, der kender mig om ikke at tiltale mig ved fornavn (og selvfølgelig efternavn). Jeg er ej heller interesseret i at folk spørger ind til fremtidsplaner, coaching status osv osv. Jeg vil hjertens gerne besvare disse personlige spørgsmål men lad det blive over PM, MSN, Facebook, whatever. Status: In-season og skadet. Væltede for tre uger siden og landede lige på en knogle placeret i min venstre skulder. Knoglen gør fortsat ondt og jeg kan endnu ikke sove på min venstre side. Det går fremad men meget langsomt. Jeg har 100% bevægelighed i skulderen men ved hurtige sammentrækninger, i et plan hvor min venstre arm er inde foran egen krop, mærker jeg smerte i knoglen. Lidt irriterende skade men der er heldigvis kun tale om et meget hårdt slag og ikke en decideret længerevarende skulderskade. Mine skuldre er under normale omstændigheder sunde og raske. Bottom line, skulderen skal have mere tid at hele i, tid er dog imidlertid hvad jeg ikke har så fra næste uge suiter jeg op igen med smertestillende indenbords. Jeg er tynd og slap på samme tid så forvent ikke video materiale af mig, der løfter sekshundredetusinde pund over hovedet. Det sker ikke. Min styrke er klart min atletiske evner og min adræthed.

Vægttræning og korrekt teknik.
Athlete X posted a topic in StyrketræningDenne tråd er ment, som en hjælp til dem, som måtte være i tvivl om hvorvidt de løfter med en fornuftig teknik i en given øvelse. I kan uploade jeres videooptagelser fra mobiltelefonen eller camcoderen til YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. Dernæst vil forummets brugere byde ind med feedback og eventuelt helt konkret vejledning til hvorledes situationen må gribes an.
Overhead pressing information.
Athlete X posted a topic in StyrketræningQuestion 1 For coach X, The other day you had posted that overhead movements like, and this is an assumption, jerk press and military were a bad thing. I was taught differently and I was wondering what the reasoning behind this idea is. I am a high school track and field and football coach...I train the shoulders using jerk press and cuff complex as auxillaries, if this is wrong, I would like to know. Thanks Answer 1 Dude, I have answered this question already in a previous post. If the individuals who taught you that pressing overhead was great then ask them thelast time they were in a cadavear lab. I understand that overhead pressing has the highest activation of all the cuff muscles but it is also the greatest irratiant and has the highest stressful forces to the shoulder joint itself. Now you should know that once you change structure, you change function. When any athlete presses overhead you take a risk and you must ask yourself is the risk worth the benefit(you should do that with any exercise you choose). ORTHOPEDICALLY speaking as the bar travels overhead you jam the head of the humerus up into the acromin, which creates impingement(as does any movement that causes the bicep to move closer to the head. Let me define shoulder impingement for all you thickheaded people out there(probably most of you are olympic based in your training knowledge and we are not creating elite weight lifters). Impingment involves a mechanical compression of the supraspinatus tendon, subacromial bursa, and the long head of the biceps tendon, all which are located under the coracoacromial arch. This compression is due to a decrease in space under said arch. Repetitive compression leads to irritation and inflammation of these structures. Shoulder impingement is also closely related to instability. Athletes who are involved in overhead ativities often exhibit hypermobility and capsular laxity. Prolonged inflammation causes decreasesd muscular efficiency and can also lend itself to one other major problem, a ruptured supraspinatus or biceps tendon. In short, shoulder impingement compresses all the soft tissue structures under the coracoacromial arch during HUMERAL ELEVATION! It also takes you out of the scapular plain and creates structural imbalances. Now ask the individuals who taught you when was the last time they were in a cadaver lab. As a strength coach you better have a working knowledge of orthopedics and rehab. I am now done trying to help people make their programs orthopedically sound, so go ahead and be lod-school, which is an excuse for being DUMB! Question 2 X and 62, You guys made few comments regarding the shoulder, overhead pressing and orthopedically sound programs. Could you expound on that for the specific case of the shoulder? Answer 2 Dude, How many times have you been to a cadaver lab? Yesterday was my 10th time(at least). Why? Because number 1 I desire knowledge and number 2 it is one thing to prescribe an exercise it is totally another thing to understand how it affects the body and how the body executes that said movement. The other day was the best dissection of the shoulder i have ever witnessed. There exsists VERY little room for error in that complex and as a strength coach i need to do a cost/benefit analysis of every exercise i choose. I know overhead pressing is the greatest activator of the entire cuff BUT it is also the most stressful and greatest irratant to the shoulder itself! I was barely able to get my pinky finger into the groove where the suparspinatus passes through! Overhead movements jam the head of the humerus right up into the acromin and is an open invitation to cuff problems(irratation), bursitis, impingement(of which i have had surgery for already and am in the process of having additional surgery on that shoulder from wear and tear) and a host of other shoulder issues. Knowing all this why would i have my athletes press overhead and put them in a compromised position? There are a thousand other ways to strengthen that area without the risks of trouble. Also note we are not overhead athletes. I am convinced that only dumbass strength coaches ask their athletes to do so cause they don't know any better. How many strength coaches do you know that take the time to visit or find a way to expand their knowledge by doing what we did the other day? I'll answer for you, NOT MANY!!! Also you should take the time to speak with your team orthopod, they are a wealth of knowledge and at some point in time you better understand the surgeries your athletes will undergo, cause you are the one who has to modify their program! Trouble is too many strength coaches don't take the time either because they are winning and believe they are GODS or they are just plain lazy and don't wish to increase their knowlegde!Ask a strength coach sometime to indentify or know the three types of impingement and see how many can answer.
