Guiding Principles of Movement – Health vs. Performance

For health…

  • Technique should be a 10 out of 10.
  • Your body should warm up.
  • Endurance is a goal.
  • Cardiovascular health is a goal.
  • Your muscles should activate and burn.
  • You should avoid end ranges of motion.
  • Slow your lifting tempos: lowering, raising, and transitioning.
  • You’re probably going to shake and twitch.
  • Push ups are therapy.
  • Single leg movements are therapy.
  • Get the outer, lower abs.
  • Try all sorts of stuff. Bodyweight exercises are helpful.
  • Remember to eat well, sleep fully, and have fun.

For performance…

  • You should be very uncomfortable. Push yourself.
  • Technique is important, but doesn’t need to be a 10 out of 10.
  • Lift with maximal intent, whether light or heavy.
  • Train your weaknesses.
  • Have a monthly training goal and a plan to accomplish that goal.
  • Get tight and hold your breath.
  • Grind through reps if you need to, but try not to miss any.
  • Total change doesn’t happen overnight.
  • Remember to eat well, sleep fully, and enjoy what you do.

Everything Speed and Agility: An Interview with Ty Terrell

Ty Terrell is one of the most “in the trenches” trainers that I know. He’s had experience coaching in the weight room, coaching basketball, and running speed & agility courses. He got his start in the fitness industry working under the great Lee Taft.

This guy knows a thing or two about athleticism, so when he talks, I listen.

I was able to get Ty to sit down for a question and answer session with us. I’ve repackaged this half hour conversation to make it flow better for you listeners out there.

Topics addressed include…

  1. Speed and agility periodization for a basketball player. (0:09)
  2. The basic speed and agility movements everyone needs to be able to perform well. (02:47)
  3. How to determine the appropriate height for an athletic stance. HINT: you don’t just “get low”. (05:20)
  4. Why sport-specific speed and agility training in the gym is a myth. (08:33)
  5. Why sport-specific speed and agility training in the gym is NOT a myth. (09:49)
  6. When to fix an athlete’s natural movement pattern. (13:26)
  7. Speed and agility work for baseball players. (17:14)
  8. A better term for “speed and agility”. (21:06)
  9. Using the weight room to develop speed and agility. (21:48)
  10. How to train speed and agility in professional athletes. (28:51)

Get ready to laugh and learn something.

Subscribers also have access to an audio-only version of the interview for convenient listening (like while you’re doing cardiac output).
