Miami University Synchronized Skating

MacKenzie Cutter is a Strength and Conditioning Coach at Miami of Ohio University, she runs a comprehensive strength and conditioning program for each of the University's teams that she is responsible for. The Miami University Synchronized Skating team has been our Nations best, they have won National Collegiate Championships in 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014. Neck training is a part of their program.

In the 1970s, colleges began introducing strength training into their athletic programs to enhance performance, as well as reduce injuries. Women, in general had a strong fear of becoming too muscular. Educators worked to dispel those fears and strength and conditioning programs are now commonplace throughout athletics. Yet wrongly conceived beliefs still linger today when it comes to training the muscles associated with the cervical spine. Neck training for the female, which increases the stiffness of the musculature rather than the size, is important not only to protect each athlete by reducing sub-concusive forces but perfect their balance and skill.

As great as these Miami synchronized skaters are, falls and collisions occur, protecting each athlete is paramount.

Training The Hands To Get Strong

Hand-grip strength has been identified as one limiting factor for manual lifting and carrying loads. An object's weight, the actual surface material being lifted and visual cues have a great deal to do with the digital forces we apply when we are lifting it. Lifting and carrying loads is the essence of strength training. For an athlete to reach his potential he or she must Get their hands Strong

All our fingers can contribute to the total force we can emit when grasping an object even the grip span affects the outcome. Training with different grip tools, varying widths as well as concentrating on individual and pairs of digits maximizes hand strength, which is reflected in total body strength.

Below the athlete begins the exercise using a 'ball grip wrist roller.'  When the exercise is completed he uses different finger combinations on the Rogers Rope Pull to strengthen each digit.

Finishing The Biceps

The barbell curl is a fundamental part of a weight training program. Any change in the lever system effects the muscular tension and therefore the outcome of the resistance being utilized on the bar. Going from a straight knee to a bent knee during lifting or simply extending your head can add leverage to the barbell and lessen the result.

Knowing this coaches may require various set and rep schemes and weight lifting system techniques to maximally develop the arms. A simple yet brutal method to ensure you are fully training the bicep is resistive rope pulling.  

Immediately upon conclusion of a barbell curl, with the Rogers Rope Pull attachment set at the base of the Pendulum Rack, have the athlete pull the rope at a difficult setting until completed.

The good news is that the exercise will require bending the knees, throwing the head back, as well as every ounce of energy the athlete can muster to finish the exercise. A great way to Get not only the biceps but the entire body Strong

Maintaining The Fundamental Football Position

Limestone College located in Gaffney, South Carolina added football as the department's 25th sport. The Saints started competition this past Fall. Curt Lamb, Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Performance, hired Eric Schwager to develop a comprehensive program that would prepare a young group of athletes to compete at the highest level upon entering the Southern Atlantic Conference. 

One drill that Eric developed is used to emphasize, strengthen and stress the importance of the "fundamental football position". Depending on the position the athlete plays, when they are fatigued, after a workout, or a particular lift they are instructed to quickly get into their basic football position. Below is an example of an offensive lineman.

In the photo the green resistance band is around the athletes shoulders and back. The red resistance band around the arms which must be thrust firmly backward with the goal of contracting the scapula muscles at all times and remain posture perfect - knees bent, back straight, head up, arms and body pushed against the bands. The goal is 30-90 seconds holding perfect form in opposition to the applied resistance.  A minimum of 30 seconds is the least acceptable amount of time to Get Strong.
