Sand pit jumps are a great way to improve confidence, competitiveness' hip height, ground contact time, explosive power and power to weight ratio! I tend to do variation's of these exercises 3/4 time a week. You can substitute ply-o exercises for weight lifting, equally you can combine weight lifting and ply-o exercises to really maximise your power! #fitness #power #jump #athletics #workout #training #sprint

Seated jump squats is an exercise i began including into my training programme almost 20 years ago. When looking at the movement it is similar to a normal jump squat. The only difference is I'm starting from a seated position. It was this exercise that gave me the confidence and foundation to be able to jump squat as much as i do now. This exercise can be done as a warm up or as a complementary finishing exercise after jumps squats. #squats #legs #power #training #exercise #workout #muscle #speed #100m #athletics

Group based exercise is a great way to improve you sprinting fitness and full body conditioning. Working through a speed and strength orientated session can be hard work but as a group you help each other through. This video is a short preview of the type of training included in the new T3 sprint training program. Using over 20 years of professional sprinting experience the program aims to help sports people improve their speed and also help anybody get fit. More information available soon! #fitness #sprint #speed #power #strength #fit #health #muscle #training #workout #gym

Explosive power!! This element can be achieved in Many ways. Explosive power can be achieved from some of the following: gym, ply-o-metrics, med ball work and rubber bands. What is power? In my opinion it is the ability to recruit ALL components of the human body and deliver a movement or action(s) with maximum effort! (Some opinions may differ but this is just my opinion) Why, when and how do you use power? WHY: we use power in all walks of life. It enables us to improve our performance at work, school, college, uni, competitions and most importantly decision making!! WHEN: we all have power, we just choose to use it when we feel the need too!! For the purpose of sport it is crucial to use it and maintain/improve its capacity... Depending on your training programme you want to do specific power work outs on days that you are fresh. (REMEMBER power sessions require a good percentage of effort, if your already tired from your previous session then you won't get the best out of your self). Example: I've just run 3x 30m @ 3:86sec and 3x 60m @ 6:50 sec. Now both of those run are less than a tenth of off my best times. Me knowing myself I would be fried (well my CNS would be fried, but my mind would tell me I'm ok and keep running). At this stage I would shut the session down with strides stretching, massage, food and home. You may not be aware but I've used speed and power to achieve the times in this session Now if your fried from a running session it's best to allow your body ample recovery from what it's just gone through. At the elite level, key sessions will be devised in a way that allows us to train explosive power in the gym and explosive power on the track. For developing athletes it's best to Communicate with your coach and separate the two. Once your able to achieve a sustainable energy level then you can combine the two together. HOW: use power on days/sessions when your mind is clear and focused and your body has the capacity to deliver the required efforts to make the session worth while. Tap into power on days that you can. Over or improper use of power will leave you drained and no gains will be made.

Why, when and how to eat!! WHY DO WE EAT: we eat because were hungry. However in the sports world our mentality is 'we eat so we can perform better.' WHEN TO EAT: this is dependent on the individual. Typically you want to eat 1and a half to 2 hours before you work out. This time frame allows you to digest and in some cases get rid of last nights meal. Regular Toilet time is good. It's a sign that your metabolism is working and you won't feel bloated and heavy for your work out. Eating close to a workout will take away from your training session. Digesting food uses energy and energy is vital for training. Allow your body to do one thing at a time! 1) eat 2) digest 3) train. HOW TO EAT: If your accustomed to eating large portions, then ween your self to consume smaller portions. Using my 6 eggs breakfast as a example I would cut that in half and eat one half 30-45 minutes after training and the remainder I would consume 1 hour later. The purpose for small portions after training is to allow your body to recover from a work out, avoid being in a catabolic state and avoid stress to your digestive system buy filling it with large food portions. REMEMBER let your body do one thing at a time!!!!! #health #fitness #life #food #portions #durability #strength #gains #recover #recovery #muscle #size #win #winner #protein #eggs #water #ween #
