I will hold by remedial. That is what the exercises are. The athlete is at a lower level of proficiency in certain area. Once again let’s stop worrying about hurting their feelings. Jose Reyes was given a set of remedial exercises to do everyday after his hamstring problems. He is now National League starting all star shortstop and has led the National League in stolen bases the last two years. It has to be remedial. www.gambetta.com/resources He knew it was remedial and he knew he needed it. Another one is movement prep, what’s wrong with good old fashioned warm-up? Movement prep is another guru term, it just complicates things. Just warm-up!

There was another comment on the post I found interesting “So how do you develop Athleticism with out strength training?” My answer is who ever said you do not strength train. Strength training is one piece of a big puzzle, certainly an important piece. It has different degrees of importance for different athletes’ at different times of their career.

Vern,

Not worried about hurting feelings with taking out the word remedial, but as stated it is just a good old fashion warm-up. Now about your example with Jose Reyes and his accomplishments. I still wouldn't call that remedial or prehab, I would call that good old fashion rehabilitation because he is addressing an injury completely without shortcuts to prevent the injury from becoming chronic. Thanks for your thoughts and stimulating the mind, but I am trying to just have discussion and adding my two cents.

Vern, What kind of strength exercises do you recommend for novices, intermediates and advanced athletes in ball sports?

Why is it always about the exercises and not the application?

Joe DiMaggio...Babe Ruth...Red Grange...Gerald Ford...Bob Cousy.. Pete Maravich...Bobby Orr...Guy Lafleur...Diego Maradonna...Ty Cobb...Quinn Buckner...I wonder if they lifted weights or strength train...or go through movement preps.
