    • You don’t need to take any notes as all of the material I’m about to present is on the internet right now Jay Johnson coachjayjohnson @ Gmail.com www. coachjayjohnson .com
    • Some Clinic Presentations Stink
    • Some Clinic Presentations Stink Presenter doesn’t give you anything that you ✴ can implement into your program Presenter gives bland, generic, evasive answers ✴ to get out of telling you what they actually do They try to squeeze their entire training ✴ program into a 45 minute presentation Their slides don’t match their handouts ✴
    • Some Clinic Presentations Stink Presenter doesn’t give you anything that you ✴ can implement into your program Presenter gives gland, generic, evasive answers ✴ to get out of telling you what they actually do They try to squeeze their entire training ✴ program into a 45 minute presentation Their slides don’t match their handouts ✴
    • We only have 45 min I’m not going to go into any science, especially ✴ regarding the endocrine system (i.e. hormones) I’m not going to give you examples of fast ✴ people who do General Strength daily (i.e. Alan Webb, Shalane Flanagan, Kara Goucher) You can watch every exercise I refer to on your ✴ computer when you get home You are ALWAYS welcome to come watch any ✴ practice I conduct if you are really interested
    • We only have 45 min I will explain the natural, logical progression ✴ underlying this type of work I will give you a 13 week training plan that will ✴ take you and the athletes through the outdoor season, ending with the State Track Meet I will show a handful of key videos and walk ✴ you through the important details, teaching you what to look for when you assign this work to your athletes
    • We only have 45 min All of this information is on the internet right now If kids do this work they will run faster
    • Wouldn’t you love to do the following for your athletes: Decrease the chance of injury ✴ ✴ Improve recovery ✴ Improve Running Economy ✴ Allow them safely to train harder ✴ Allow them to safely run more miles
    • If a pill could do this, would you prescribe it to your athletes? Decrease the chance of injury ✴ ✴ Improve recovery ✴ Improve Running Economy ✴ Allow them safely to train harder ✴ Allow them to safely run more miles
    • This presentation is simply about giving athletes those benefits... Simple
    • The problem with the pill analogy is that our society is constantly questioning and wondering who is clean and who is not...
    • yet the irony is that the General Strength exercises I’ll share with you today do up-regulate HGH and Testosterone...
    • and that’s the primary reason General Strength has such an impact Do I condone drug use? NO, NO, NO
    • I’m going to show you simple exercises you can do at the track with your team, all year long You can do this with 2 kids or 20 kids or ✴ 100 kids, males and females You don’t need any equipment to do great ✴ General Strength work that is challenging When we do add equipment let’s simply ✴ use equipment that is already at the track ...but what about Simple the weight room?
    • “the Next Logical Step” - Mark Wetmore ...but what about the weight room?
    • “the Next Logical Step” - Mark Wetmore Is the weight room really the next logical step for your athletes to improve as distance runners?
    • “Train Movements, not Muscles” - Vern Gambetta Simple Principle #1
    • Lunge Matrix Warm-Up (LM) You work in all three planes of motion ✴ The more you run, the more you tend to be ✴ good in one plane of motion (sagital plane) You can watch every exercise I refer to on ✴ your computer when you get home Simple Principle #1
    • Lunge Matrix Warm-Up (LM) You’ll be sore following the first 3-4 times ✴ following the warm-up After 7-10 days, no soreness; after 3-4 weeks ✴ you don’t “feel right” without doing it If you want to learn more about this approach ✴ to human movement, go to one of Gary Gray’s seminars...I hope to go to one soon myself Simple Principle #1
    • Lateral Lunge Warm-Up (LL) More challenging than LM, so use it following ✴ workouts for 1-2 weeks before using it as a warm-up After 7-10 days, no soreness ✴ This is assigned daily as part of the Warm-up ✴ LM and LL take less than 5 min ✴ Simple Principle #1
    • General Strength has historically focused on the Anterior Chain Simple Principle #2
    • General Strength for running should be highly focused on the Posterior Chain Simple Principle #2
    • “Simple ain’t Easy” - Thelonius Monk Simple Principle #3
    • “If you can do more, then you can do more” Simple Principle #4
    • General to Specific ...and a few kids are ready for specific, so JUST DO IT. Simple Principle #5
    • These people are wired to deal with lactate, so don’t treat them like Leadville 100 runners
