I think I died and came back at least 2 times during today’s track sesh 😭 I only look happy because I get to be a potato now and eat all the recovery gummies 🙌🏼 #bestpartoftheday#get_done
It’s probably been about 6 years since I’ve really run on a track, and finally I remember how crap sprint repeats are 😂 I think I wanted to call it quits after every round, but I guess @kymani_naim is just that good at pep talks 🤷🏻♀️
Swipe ➡️ for the workout taken from @netfitnetball because I REALLY didn’t want to do 300s repeats with the dudes 😂
Fueled by @seattlegummycompany Energon Qubes preworkout - I always have packs of their pre/post workout gummies with me to supercharge all my workouts as they’re super portable! Since I’m always running around I need all the extra carbs and BCAAs that I can get to help me stay at the top of my game 🤗
If you’ll excuse me, now it is time to potato. Happy weekend loves 💕 #seattlegummysquad
Me encanta mi trabajo, doy gracias a Dios porque me gano la vida haciendo lo que me gusta.

Me: “And sometimes the road to success is a little easier, so what?” It’s still a road with success at the end. Let’s go!

•When I train athletes, 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐠𝐨𝐚𝐥 𝐢𝐬 𝐚𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦 𝐟𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐯𝐞, whether we’re working on linear speed, strength in the weight room, or change of direction/agility.
•The same formula applies to improving change of direction as it does in speed:
1️⃣Body position: Core stability/strength, projection, mobility
2️⃣Force/power output: Increase ability to absorb AND produce it
3️⃣Reactivity on the ground: Longer time on the ground= slower, less explosive athlete
•These drills shown in the video address all 3 parts of the formula, and are made specific to the wide receiver position in football 🏈

🔹️This study aimed to investigate whether specific horizontal and vertical force vector resistance exercises improved sprinting and jumping performance.🏃♀️
➡️The vertical force vector group added a half back squat to their resistance training routine; the horizontal force vector group added a barbell hip thrust to their resistance training routine.
✅Using strength training exercises that mimic the biomechanical and neuromuscular patterning of a performance measure has positive impact on that measure.
✅While each group improved athletic performance measures with similar force vectors, including both horizontally- and vertically-oriented exercises can improve both sprinting and jumping.
➡️Training was performed 1x per week and was completed over the course of 20 weeks during the athletic season. It is possible that performing these exercises more frequently during the week (off-season) could result in greater effects.
✅The hip thrust may have a superior carry over, or transference effect, to sprinting compared to half back squats; although both exercises improved sprinting performance greater than the control condition.
