My skill stability paradigm continues to help many coaches of various sports around the world to make technical changes in their athletes.
I’ve explained the science of it before and it works and will continue to work when the stages of learning and adaptation are respected
Here is an example of stage 3 ballistic SSP tier that would be seen as ISO-REACT group of exercises (watch here https://www.instagram.com/p/BrcTkZRBbTG/)
This is called antagonistically facilitated specialized method of training (AFSM)
The AFSM iso-react group of exercises would be introduced late preparation phase as a great ‘peaking method’ before competition/season start.
The AFSM is used to train the antagonist muscle to relax more rapidly, allowing faster contraction.
Once again maximal strength and power output levels make this high velocity, high transfer of training possible, so the first 5 stages build the foundation for this phase
ISO REACT (AFSM)
“AFSM training differs from conventional shock training because the powerful eccentric action placed on the muscle tendon series is initiated by a strong contraction of the antagonist musculature.
For this to happen, there must be a simultaneous relaxation of the agonist muscle group while the antagonists are being recruited.
The relaxation between opposing muscles becomes very significant, as L. Matveyev posited that athletes who increased this “relaxation” ability ultimately would distinguish themselves from their lesser qualified peers.
This was most dramatically evident with the highest level athletes, Masters of Sport, who showed a relaxation time nearly 200 percent faster than novice level athletes” @vandykestrength
AFSM training, though similar in appearance to conventional dynamic/ballistic training, is very taxing on the central nervous system and should only be performed after every other skill stability paradigm stage has been completed.
TRIPHASIC training form the basis of all my fast Bowling programmes.
Whether in a CONCENTRATED Block, CONJUGATE block, PENDULUM Block or a COMPLEX BLOCK.
Isolate the contraction
