Bret Contreras re-evaluates hip thrusts.

FWIW, I personally have never been much of a fan of hip thrusts. I do like high rep single/double leg glute bridges (hip thrusts) -> but that's light weight, high rep.

Lol Joel Smith comes up with some of the sickest ideas that work!
33yrs | 24in SVJ | >45% BF | 227LB | 5'9 | 7'5 reach | 400lb max squat paused | 5'8 wingspan | 26in RVJ

Coming back from 2 years of inactivity!

Goal: Maintain 385-405lb squat while cutting down to 165 LB

speaking of RJ .. an article was just posted by him on just-fly-sports:

https://www.just-fly-sports.com/concentric-reactive-ballistics-explosive-performance/

Quote
During conventional barbell training, intensity is manipulated primarily via load. The more weight you lift, the higher the intensity, the stronger you get. While this works fine for a while, what most trainees find is that a long term focus on conventional lifting results in excess weight gain, development of the “prime movers” out of proportion with the “stabilizing muscles”, a reduction in sport speed and form, and an ever-increasing chance of injury as the weights climb.

it's a nice opening quote .. i like the weight gain part, but that can be controlled when doing traditional lifting simply through diet. not sure about the other claims, would have been nice if he used references :)

I think the biggest thing he's missing though, is, what happens when the weights become easier over time? ie, you've been squatting for 2 years, and 1.5 x BW used to be hard, now it flies up in < 1s - you can basically jump squat it, with your new slow max at 2.5 x BW, at a 5-7 lb. bodyweight increase.. now what? Sounds like a recipe for solid performance gains. :ninja:

so now, how's that work with "ballistics"? You used to be able to swing the hammer 30 ft, now you can swing it 50 ft. Surely a power increase, but not sure how well it increases without significant increases in base strength.

I just don't buy the injury stuff though.. Theoretically, the more force you are able to produce at voluntary effort, the more stress you are able to create for your tendons, muscles, bones, joints, etc. Doesn't really matter what you are doing, if you are performing anything at "max effort", whether it's running, sprinting, swinging a hammer, depth jumping, bounding, squatting etc, the injury risk always seems high, even though you are more prepared than the average human. And it's not just more prepared, it's also less inhibited - less inhibition meant to protect you from yourself, controlled the CNS. To me, heavy lifting has always seemed safer than ballistic efforts. Things move so much more slowly, you have way more control.

Regardless, seems very similar to RJ of many years ago. Almost looks like an old article. Wonder how he's progressed more now that he's coaching.

impressed with this coach. seems to really make his athletes work during these sessions, brings the intensity.

also, some of these "kids" in the videos are nuts.. South Florida is known for crazy athletic WR's/DB's/RB's.



quick clip of some NFL'rs doing footwork/drills .. so impressive.




this video is solid .. intense.
