"Power Speed Endurance" is the new book from CrossFit Endurance founder, Brian MacKenzie. It outlines in great detail skills including swimming, cycling. Power Speed Endurance is a specific endurance training program dedicated to improving skill, performance, and overall potential. We coach and provide our. the crossfit-based plan for endurance sports hinges on low-volume, high-intensity training designed to constantly shock the body. onJune 18 last summer.
These walks can be done forward, backward, and laterally. For advanced training the coach can toss a medicine ball to the athlete while engaged in walking, throws can be varied in location to increase task difficulty. As skill levels develop the coach can play with depths, distances, volumes, and work to rest ratios.
Duck walks: the athlete assumes a half squat depth and proceeds to walk with a fuller extension of the knee joint than in the previous exercise prescription. Multiple direction training again should be used as can apparatus. Lunge Extensions walks: the athlete takes a long, lunge like step with maximum leg split.
After a short pause in this position they should then rise up over the front leg in a tall as possible position while passing the base of support and then land on the opposite leg in a similar split attitude.
Holding a medicine ball in various positions will increase degree of difficulty. Overhead, on the side, behind the back, and in front with arms fully extended are common positions for ball positioning.
Rudiment: a jumping battery This is a multiple jump or plyometric based series whereby the athlete does various jumping skills using various amplitudes of flight and very specific wavelengths in terms of distance covered. The height of displacement and distance of each flight phase in series B is dependent upon biophysical demands.
In addition, activity in your nerves is carried out with special messaging molecules called neurotransmitters — and in most cases, these neurotransmitters are amino acids or derivatives of amino acids 8. For this reason, optimal protein intake along with balanced intake of amino acids from food or supplement sources can also be very helpful in supporting your nervous system.
Some of the best high amino acid protein sources for your nervous system include grass-fed beef, wild salmon, eggs from pastured chickens, raw organic dairy, almond and almond butter , quinoa, and spirulina or chlorella sources. Finally, in order for the nervous system to synthesize and circulate these neurotransmitters, you need to have adequate intake of B complex vitamins, and Vitamins B6, B12, and folate are especially important in nerve metabolism As soon as you take it, choline makes its way to the brain and increases focus, muscle contractibility, and even memory formation allowing you to form new neural circuits for learning complex activities such as multi-joint lifts.
I personally get my daily dose of choline from the Chinese adaptogenic herb complex TianChi. L-tyrosine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is the precursor to the neurotransmitter adrenaline also known as epinephrine.
So L-tyrosine is not only able to increase levels of adrenaline in the body quite handy prior to a power workout , but can also protect neurons from free radical based oxidation by embedding itself in the cell membrane and acting as an anti-oxidant 4.
Brands vary. Although all of these catechins share similar brain-boosting properties, EGCG appears to be most potent for elevated brain and neuronal activity 5.
There are several forms of Vitamin B that are helpful for power development. Niacin niacinamide has been shown to help maintain normal function of nerves. Folate folic acid is essential for proper brain function.
Vitamin B12 cyanocobalamin is the most potent of the Vitamin B complex.
It maintains a healthy nervous system by helping to maintain the myelin sheath that insulates your nerve fibers, and has been shown to help heal nerve damage. Finally, pantothenic acid d-calcium pantothenate plays a key role in helping maintain precise communication between your central nervous system and brain, which is crucial to functions such as powerful muscle contractions and reaction speed.
I personally use a supplement called Lifeshotz to get a full Vitamin B dose in one convenient packet although I tend to more often take this prior to swim workouts because of the antioxidant effect against chlorine.
Here are some of my top power gear recommendations many gyms actually this stuff lying around under-utilizing in a dark corner somewhere.
Athletes such as tennis and soccer players, who rely on speed, quick movement and ability to change direction at the last second are not the only individuals who can benefit from agility ladder workouts and drills. Because of the ability of agility ladders to teach you reduced ground contact time and increase your explosiveness from ground contact, endurance athletes can benefit from these too. Use a vest that fits tight to your body and allows you to move quickly without the vest bouncing around on your chest and back.
So, if you are using the lightest cable, you can go from 10 to 20 to 30 lbs of resistance in seconds and for the heaviest cables you can go from to lbs of resistance in seconds.
These are good for resisted sprints and explosive upper body work. So this section of the chapter will go fast, pun intended.
Speed is the ability to travel a set distance over as short a period of time as possible.
