Happy New Year, Bridge coaches and athletes! After a break over the holidays, I know you are ready to get back into the swing of things. The next block in the video series is dedicated to preparing you for a successful competition phase: Speed and Recovery. To perform at an optimal speed, you need to make sure you're fully rested from your training phases. In this video series that I have chosen for the New Year, I will include a combination of plyometric and stretching exercises.The plyometric exercises are aimed at developing speed and the stretching exercises complement the plyometric exercises to best aid in recovery. Never forget, sleep is the best tool we have for recovery.
In starting off the New year right, be sure to include the will to prepare to succeed. Check in next week for the first episode of our speed and recovery series, where Nick Folker will introduce two strength training exercises.
