A long, long awaited follow-up to my popular volleyball biomechanics series in 2012. This has been slowly under development for about a year. Those of you who have been patiently waiting, I hope you like it.
This post is going to be a bit different than all of my prior ones. Within this post I will discuss how Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) or Ontogenesis (development of an organism), Dynamic Systems Theory, and the Degrees of Freedom Problem all blend together.
The beauty of neuromuscular re-education in athletic training is that results can come quickly. Steven is an “all-in” athlete. Soon after starting to feel the effects of the training, Steven began asking questions about what he could do outside the gym to improve his athletic performance. When an athlete asks this question, I know he or she will succeed within their sport.
Steven was pitching at the professional level with all these movement imperfections lingering in the background, ultimately holding him back. He had huge amounts of potential that was untapped because these learned, non-ideal motor patterns had never been corrected.
In this week's post, we break down Samantha Bricio and the American Volleyball Coaches Association tip of the week video.
Dwight’s training began with various tests to assess not only his athleticism but his quality of movement. He was already a successful NFL safety, yet his movement patterns indicated he had much to gain.
