Thoughts and discussion on kettlebell training, strength and conditioning, Olympic lifting, fat loss, getting healthy and fit, NMT, core training, Pilates, mobility and anything else that goes with the above.
For many years we have promoted the use of neuromuscular warm ups for the most common sports in Ireland. Still we see old school coaches sticking with the static stretch warm ups, still we see athletes like Colm Cooper (recently) getting injured.
It's time for the dinosaurs to wake up and move with the times. Clubs need to pay a little money to get the right coaches in to teach proper modern warm up techniques, otherwise it will cost more, eventually when your athletes get injured.
The above video is one movement that your athletes can do, without a kettlebell, as part of their warm ups. This movement challenges the nervous system, balance, agility, spinal mobility, ankle, knee and hip stability to name a few benefits. Here are some other movements to add in http://youtu.be/j8Ju2NSW0-w
Keep them moving.
