•This is Mark. He’s been a competitive Ironman for the last few years. Needless to say he has some serious training capacity and work ethic.
•We trained together years ago, pre #FRC. When Mark came back in we started from the ground up. Even though we had trained in the past, we have learned new tools to evaluate and target training. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•Using #functionalrangeconditioning principles we evaluated where he specifically needed improvement in his joint capacity and range of motion, and built a plan to move forward.
•This is the end of his 6th session. After working PAILs/RAILs for hip capsule internal and external rotation, we completed 2 sets of 10 reps of rotational CARs, then 2 sets of 10 with light band resistance. Then we followed up with light eccentric rotations for IR and ER. To finish the session we did 2 sets of 5 side lying hip CAR’s utilizing kettlebells and yoga blocks behind his low back, and for his hands to hold. This was to provide some proprioceptive feedback, and utilize the entire range of his hip, and nothing else.
•If your are new to @functionalrangeconditioning , this may all sound like a new language. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To simply put it, we are building a solid foundation first. Ensuring that he has the requisite joint capacity for any and all activities he may encounter. This is how you can outlast your training, and build longevity.
