In cooperation with World Indoor Throwing the IAAF High Performance Centre in VÃ¤xjÃ¶ along with SmÃ¥land Sport and Exceed Performance, will host a strength and medical convention of world class. Prominent experts in weight training, physical training and medicine will lead lectures as well as practical training sessions directed towards talent development and elite sport.
I find it strange how such a vital component to sport is not more popular. With speakers such as Marco Cardinale and Rickard Nilsson we would think waiting lists! The problem is that power is very objective, and while I understand the limits of testing it, we seem to have too much voodoo with what transfers to sport. Time after time I have suggested Strength and Power in Sport by Paavo Komi, yet social media photos are displaying books on business and marketing with GA Strength Coaches! Private facilities I understand, 23 year old strength coaches that are at the university I just don’t get.
