JD: Landon thanks for taking the time to go over the presentation you’ll be putting on at the 2012 Seminar, “Physical Preparation in the NCAA: a complementary approach”. I know you’re a busy guy so let’s get right to it. Let’s dive into the title. Sense this is a topic that many people are working to still get their head around, let’s discuss what “a complementary approach” actually is.
LE: I’m still working on trying to wrap my head around all of this too!
Our jobs in the physical preparation/strength & conditioning profession are to raise the level of preparedness in our athletes within our (unfortunate) scope of practice. Within this scope, we have a multitude of training factors that can influence the level of development. All of these factors have particular targets. These targets, be it particular enzymatic systems, proteins that are involved in protein synthesis, or simply the suppleness and mobility of joint systems. These targets can be influenced at various magnitudes depending on a host of factors that seem infinite at times. The ultimate struggle is to use the appropriate training factor(s) to target the desired system(s), at the right times, in the right dosages, and keep the negative costs associated with the work down enough to ensure a heightened biological power. This is how I view a complementary approach.
What I will attempt to do in 75 minutes is to outline where my mind starts when I begin working with a team or individual here at the NCAA level within in my particular environment. Address what governs my thinking process, then how that feeds into the assessment/screening, diagnosis of the problem(s), particular interventions, and the monitoring and evaluation domains.
The presentation is not only to simply elaborate on how I operate, but to spark conversation after the presentation. All attendees have their particular lens they see things through. My hope is that I can stimulate conversation afterwards so I can continue to grow.
This is selfish in a way, but at the end of the day, the only thing that matters if my athletes. If I am enlightened from others, this will only help my athletes. That is what is important.
JD: The conversations that spark after the presentations are concluded is exactly what we all are hoping for. The more interaction the better, and I feel that this is something that The Seminar has been great for since its inception a few years back. I can’t wait to be a fly on the wall and soak it all in. Landon, thanks for taking the time to give us the introduction to your presentation, I know that all our readers/attendees are just as excited as I am for it.
We are hoping to provide the best possible content for strength coaches with each of our shows. If feel this could provide value for anyone else in the strength and conditioning field please feel free to share.
