How fast would you drive a sport car if you didn’t have brakes?
"How fast would you drive a sports car if you didn't have brakes" – @robertdos We would guess not very fast. The brain acts as a "governor" on the nervous system. It will only allow you to produce what it knows you can decelerate. Sarah is getting ready for her freshman year of college basketball. She has two partially torn ACL's that she's been playing on for the last two years. One of our many goals this summer is to improve her braking system to accept the repetitive loads & forces required of a Power Forward. That means a solid training plan that includes a ton of progressive single leg eccentrics, isometrics, and plyometrics. Above Sarah is performing one our favorite (and most difficult) eccentric braking exercises a Single Leg Squat. She will always have to wear some form of knee brace as that's the "cost of doing business" for her to continue to play at a high level without getting surgery…. but we can help her to rely less on them (or not at all) during things like training, conditioning, & lighter practices between games. Not to mention we're setting her up for success once her basketball career is over. @sfeinberg @collectmomentsnotthingz @movementasmedicine @drandreospina @bodybyboyle #CFSC #FRC #costofdoingbusiness #brakes #regressions #progressions #lateralizations
