Answering Questions About How I Train
If you are new here or just haven’t gotten tired of hearing this, my name is Eric Moss and in addition to being a personal trainer with a personal training studio on Main Street in Boonton I’m also a modern day performing strongman.
When people see the feats of strength I do, they sometimes ask about what I do for my own fitness program. In this video I pull the curtain back a bit and explain a bit of the method behind the madness.
I train my personal training clients utilizing a lot of the same strategies I use on myself, just appropriate to their situation and their goals.
A couple of the concepts mentioned;
The S.a.i.d. Principle (specific adaptations to imposed demands) we adapt specifically to what we do.
Overcoming Isometrics- trying to move an immovable object using maximum effort.
Bilateral strength deficit-
“The bilateral limb deficit (BLD) describes the difference in maximal or near maximal force generating capacity of muscles when they are contracted alone or in combination with the contralateral muscles. A deficit occurs when the summed unilateral force is greater than the bilateral force”
Ballistic training – “Ballistic training, also called power training, is a form of training which involves throwing weights, and jumping with weights, in order to increase explosive power. The intention in ballistic exercises is to maximise the acceleration phase of an object’s movement and minimise the deceleration phase.”
In summary, practice the sport or activity, fill in the gaps leftover with strength.
