  • @TWagen1329 i completely agree, he gets already good athletes 'given' to him when they go to university and some other coach has done the hard work, he then sticks them in the gym lifting and they get injured. He did exactly the same with his own career, obviously he hasn't learned from his own mistakes. Also he's a perve and openly cheats on his wife with women on the athletics scene.

  • I really don't know how this man is allowed to "mentor" anyone. He has injured more athletes than he has helped.

  12. 12. www.englandathletics.www.englandathleotricgs/e.oarsgt Summary… ! Is the joint designed for mobility or stability? ! Pain at a stability joint - cause can generally be found above or below ! Address the cause not the symptom! ! What muscles cross the problem joint - address these issues!
  13. 13. www.englandathletics.www.englandathleotricgs/e.oarsgt Javelin thoughts… ! Shoulder mobility ! Thoracic Spine mobility/ integrity ! Anterior hip range of movement What issues could limitations in these areas lead too?
  14. 14. www.englandathletics.www.englandathleotricgs/e.oarsgt
  15. 15. Groups - Practical ! Group 1: Anterior hip – Shot/ Discus ! Group 2: Shoulder Flexion – Hammer ! Group 3: Shoulder Lateral Rotation (Ext) - Javelin ! Group 4: Thoracic Extension - Javelin ! Group 5: Thoracic Rotation – Discus/ Shot ! Group 6: Hamstring - Hammer www.englandathletics.www.englandathleotricgs/e.oarsgt
  16. 16. ! Assume a limitation based on the above ! Consider the implications – Physically – Technically ! Come up with 2-3 exercises to present back to the group to progress these areas ! Make sure you consider the indirect factors on Performance also… www.englandathletics.www.englandathleotricgs/e.oarsgt
