Hi guys

Im going staying in the NCTC from about nov 24th till dec 8th as part of my carding scheme. Im allowed bring a coach too.

If anyone fancies it let me know. PS You dont need to be a coach. If someone wants hard training for a couple weeks.

Any takers?

I can also get any types of equipment that I want. EG fitrodyne.

Does anyone have any suggestions for anything useful?

I would say try and get some good Dartfish Analysis done. Bar trajectories in the sagittal plane could be useful. Perhaps also try and get some body composition testing done. They have DEXA in the PESS Dept (next door to NCTC) that would be the most accurate way of getting it assessed.

Perhaps then in the new year you could come back for re-testing. This might give you some better info as to whether you should be lying in the 85s or 94s.

I am not sure if I am convinced about fitrodyne as a tool for weightlifters?

You could use it to measure power in incremental steps in an exercise such as power snatch or power clean to see at what point, with weight increasing, power declines (or bar velocity). This might give you some feedback on a range you wish to work in for training where the focus might be speed/power rather than just "weight lifted"
