I will hold by remedial. That is what the exercises are. The athlete is at a lower level of proficiency in certain area. Once again let’s stop worrying about hurting their feelings. Jose Reyes was given a set of remedial exercises to do everyday after his hamstring problems. He is now National League starting all star shortstop and has led the National League in stolen bases the last two years. It has to be remedial. www.gambetta.com/resources He knew it was remedial and he knew he needed it. Another one is movement prep, what’s wrong with good old fashioned warm-up? Movement prep is another guru term, it just complicates things. Just warm-up!
There was another comment on the post I found interesting “So how do you develop Athleticism with out strength training?” My answer is who ever said you do not strength train. Strength training is one piece of a big puzzle, certainly an important piece. It has different degrees of importance for different athletes’ at different times of their career.
