Four Steps to Increase Athleticism

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Last year I wrote a series of articles titled ‘Athletic Development’. The series provides a guide to training with an emphasis on performance. If you are not an Olympian then the chances are you are not anywhere near your genetic athletic potential,  and while the series isn’t about taking an average Joe and turning him into Chris Hoy, it is about taking an individual and aiding their knowledge – allowing them to maximize their potential!

 Have a read through the articles and apply the basic template into your regime.

Athletic Development: The Posterior Chain
This article is all about the hamstrings, glutes and lower back.
Athletic Development: The Kinetic Chain
In the second post of the series the whole body, working as one (efficiently), is discussed.
Athletic Development: Muscle Armour
This article is all about muscle building.
Athletic Development: Conditioning
The final article of the series deals with the broad topic of conditioning.

The ‘Athletic Development’ series will give you a good base to work from so don’t be affraid to try something new.
