Australia Day Six
Taught Speed to Max Seminar. The majority of coaches were from team sports so that determined the emphasis of the seminar. We were able to do a fair bit of practical work, which was good. It was interesting again to have the dorsi flexion “toe up” come up again and the pawing action. Those myths still get passed on without any basis in biomechanics regardless of the country. Had a small sidebar discussion on defining the field of “Strength & Conditioning.” Many feel that the term is confining and defining them to a rather small range of activities that is not indicative of what they actually do. Once again the issue is universal. Had dinner with the South Sydney performance team staff. Really good discussions on many practical issues that they face in training for Rugby League.
