Training Resources

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning organization developed to complement military, police and fireman training. They utilize principles form olympic, kettlebell, gymnastics and various other training protocols to develop their programs. The environment is very supportive and encouraging. With the proper training it can be safe. However, unless their workouts are modified to your level, CrossFit can be a bit excessive in performance levels for most people. They seem to have sound ideas about lifting, body weight exercises and training cycles. Keep in mind, CrossFit is strength conditioning and may bring out biomechanical dysfunctions without proper coaching. For better performance in sports, complement CrossFit training with sport-specific technical, multi-directional and speed training and you will make a big step forward in your game. Check out the exercise and video section. There are some really interesting routines. In the video section you will find that the Olympic Lifting tutorials by Mike Bergener provide critical insight into the techniques for this sport by a master trainer. 

STACK training web site is developed mainly by dedicated athletes to disseminate information about their sport. This sight also has a nice video section to provide some ideas about more sport-specific functional training techniques.

Something To Consider:

Spinal Load and Back Exercies

Intensity of spinal exercises can be measured as muscle loading and spinal loading such as spinal compression and spinal shear forces. (Axler, McGill 1997) Ideal exercises have a high ratio of muscle challenge to spinal load. Analyses of common exercises prescribed for low back pain give surprising information. For instance, spinal load is not different during sit-ups with knees bent or straight. In either case, the load is extremely high (over 3000N) and should not be prescribed in the low back recovering population! (Axler, McGill 1997; McGill 1995). There are safer back exercises. Safe back exercises emphasizing endurance training of key spinal stabilizers have produced very successful results with correcting spinal imbalances. (Hides et al., 1996; McGill 1998; Liebenson 1999; Timm et al., 1994; O'Sullivan et al., 1997).
