Practical Guidelines and Considerations for the Use of Elastic Bands in Strength and Conditioning

ABSTRACT: ELASTIC BANDS ARE A FORM OF VARIABLE RESISTANCE AND A STRENGTH TRAINING MODALITY COMMONLY SEEN WITHIN A STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING TRAINING ENVIRONMENT. THEY ARE CONSIDERED AN EFFECTIVE TRAINING TOOL DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE RESISTANCE ALIGNS WITH THE FORCE CAPABILITY OF THE MUSCULATURE THROUGHOUT THE RANGE OF MOTION OF MANY MOVEMENT TASKS. THIS ARTICLE WILL EXPLORE THE WAYS IN WHICH ELASTIC BANDS CAN BE USED TO CHALLENGE OR ACCOMMODATE A MOVEMENT'S RANGE OF MOTION TO PROVIDE A MORE SPECIFIC STRENGTH-TRAINING STIMULUS.

Lucas Sponsler's insight:
Elastic bands represent an area of strength training into which we have not yet ventured here at Western High. Intriguing though it may be, so many questions arise: how should we work it into our current program? How do we ensure safe and appropriate use? How and when can we teach the techniques associated with it? How should we approach the use of elastic bands in our large group settings, i.e. a class of 50 students, a team of 30 path lets?

Have the Danes cracked childhood obesity?

Have the Danes cracked childhood obesity? | Athletic Hallway | Scoop.it
Childhood obesity has become a global epidemic, but it is not easy to treat. Now a scheme proven to help children shed pounds by asking them and their families to make numerous lifestyle changes has been adopted across Denmark.A Danish paediatrician claims his pilot project has made a significant breakthrough in the battle against childhood obesity. The scheme, in the town of Holbaek, has treated 1,900 patients and helped 70% of them to maintain normal weight by adjusting about 20 elements of their lifestyles.

If obese children make obese adults, then we need to teach our kids really good eating habits when they are young.  Have a read of this and let me know what you think.

A Dynamic Routine

A Dynamic Routine | Athletic Hallway | Scoop.it
Maybe you've heard that stretching before a run is a big mistake. Indeed, studies show that static stretching—holding a muscle in an elongated, fixed position for 30 seconds or more—could hurt performance if done before a workout (save it for after your run). But dynamic stretching, which uses controlled leg movements to improve range of motion, loosens up muscles and increases heart rate, body temperature, and blood flow to help you run more efficiently. Dynamic stretching is most effective when it's sport-specific. This prerun routine targets the muscles used for running.

Why Indians love cricket

Why Indians love cricket | Athletic Hallway | Scoop.it
“TO OUTSIDERS, the magnitude of Indians' love for cricket is as incomprehensible as its feverish intensity. On February 4th India awarded the Bharat Ratna, its highest civilian honour, to Sachin Tendulkar, a recently retired batsman. Millions in India, a country of 1.3 billion people and only one nationally-popular game, celebrated wildly. When India's national side plays a big game, an estimated 400m watch on television. Yet cricket's take-off in India is a highly improbable development. The game is demanding to play properly, requiring space, a good turf pitch and expensive equipment—which only a relative handful of Indian cricketers have access to. Most will never strap on pads or bowl with a leather ball. So why do they so love the game?”Tags: sport, popular culture, culture, development, India, South Asia, globalization, empire.

Mark Hathaway's curator insight, November 10, 2015 6:19 AM

Why do Indians love Cricket? As with most modern day countries, colonialism has something to do with it. However, the British never intended to promote Cricket in India. It was the local elite of India that first pushed to incorporate the game into Indian culture. Desperate to gain the prestige that the British attached to the game, the elite began the practice of playing Cricket in India. In the years following independence, the game has spread to the other classes of Indian society. The game has become the national pastime for the nation.

Benjamin Jackson's curator insight, December 14, 2015 11:52 AM

this is an interesting reason for a game to spread. it was a game played by the elite, so it never really lost the appeal of being a sport of the rich.

 

Martin Kemp's curator insight, December 17, 2015 3:30 PM

i have tried to watch a cricket match before but it seemed so odd, i dont really fully understand the game but the people playing (especially inians) were playing more than a game, for them it seemed like they were playing for their country and it was a great honor to them. unlike a sport like soccer where people play for other countries teams.

The reason we do dynamic warm ups is because they make it to where your body is always moving and warming up which is more effective than static exercises.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.
