Nutrition For Muscle Mass By Rob Skinner, MS, RD, CSCS

is found in meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, eggs, nuts, and dried beans.

Do your athletes ask you how they can “bulk up” to better compete against bigger and stronger players? If so, empower them with the following information about the critical components for muscle gain – strength training and calories. Adding Calories to Add Muscle If the ultimate goal is enhanced muscle size, athletes need to push themselves with a challenging strength training program and top off their daily food intake with an additional 500 to 1000 calories. With calories from all three macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein and fat), the body can use dietary protein to build muscle. If athletes don’t eat enough calories, however, the body will use its protein stores for energy and this limits muscle gain. Contrary to what many athletes believe, the extra calories needed for muscle development do not have to come from protein exclusively.

Research shows most athletes can consume this amount of protein without using supplements or following a special high-protein diet. And, in fact:  Athletes can get enough protein for muscle growth and repair in a mixed diet.  Protein from a food or supplement acts the same in the body.  Extra protein not needed by the body is burned for energy or stored as fat.

If the ultimate goal is enhanced muscle size, athletes need to push themselves with a challenging strength training program and top off their daily food intake with an additional 500 to 1000 calories.

Protein is Only Part of the Power Although protein provides amino acids for muscle growth and recovery from strength training, carbohydrate is the most important macronutrient for strength building. Eating adequate carbohydrate fuels the body with the right kind of energy for tough workouts and saves amino acids for muscle building and recovery. A general recommendation for strength training athletes is to eat 1.2 to 1.7g protein/kg body weight per day. Protein

Timing Can Make a Difference Research also shows carbohydrate and protein eaten within 30 minutes of a workout is effective in:  Restoring amino acids and carbohydrate in muscle.  Preparing muscles for the next workout. Snacking shortly after a workout is one way to add the 500 to 1000 calories needed daily for a muscle building program. Foods like turkey sandwiches, crackers and cheese or an energy bar containing 7 to 14 grams of protein are good choices.

Rob Skinner, a registered dietitian and certified strength and conditioning specialist, is director of sports performance at the Georgia Tech Athletic Association. He works with athletes from 17 different NCAA sports, as well as Olympians and players from the NFL, NBA and MLB.

Bulletin Board Female Athletes: What MDs Need to Know This summer, several physicians’ groups met and drafted a consensus statement on what they felt team physicians need to know about working with female athletes. The major topics include anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, issues pertaining to the patellofemoral joint, shoulder conditions, stress fractures, osteopenia and osteoporosis, disordered eating, selected menstrual dysfunction, and pregnancy/contraception. The consensus statement is not meant to be seen as a standard of care, but rather as a guide to working with, evaluating, and treating female athletes. It can be found in the Oct. 2003 issue of Medicine and Science of Sports and Exercise (Vol. 35, No. 10, pp 1785-93), or at the AOSSM’s Web site at www.aossm.org/Publications/Consensus%20Statements/default.htm.

Adding Pep to Workouts Recent research has shed some light on a simple, legal, and pleasant way to increase performance: peppermint oil. Based on studies by Bryan Raudenbush, PhD, at Wheeling Jesuit University in W.Va., over the past few years, sniffing peppermint oil during workouts and competition could become the next big thing. A few years ago, Raudenbush and his colleagues tested the hypothesis that certain odors could affect athletic performance (they tried jasmine, peppermint oil, plain oxygen, and dimethyl sulfide—which smells sort of like old socks). Of those odors tested, peppermint clearly stood out as showing promise—athletes inhaling peppermint-infused oxygen invariably said they felt their workouts were less taxing. They continued to look at the relationship between odors and things such as pain threshold, as well as athletic performance. That research was published in such journals as Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology (Vol. 23, pp 156-60, 2001), Aromachology (Vol. 10, pp 1-12, 2002), and International Sports Journal (Vol. 6, pp 1-15, 2002). Raudenbush and his colleagues have since focused on whether peppermint could affect performance. Early studies found that participants (athletes and non-athletes) were able to exert themselves further when inhaling peppermint oil: an average of three extra pushups and improved running times and hand grips. That research is ongoing.

Boning Up On Stress Injuries Stress injuries are some of the most challenging to treat, and not much has been written about stress injuries to bone. But researchers at the University of Minnesota recently published the results of a study tracking 68 athletes with bone stress injuries. They developed a standardized grading system that can help predict time to return to sport, and found, not surprisingly, a strong correlation between grade of injury and time to full return to activity. They also discuss their standardized rehab protocol for getting athletes back in the game. The article was published in the Nov.-Dec. 2003 issue of the American Journal of Sports Medicine, Vol. 31, No 6, pp 959-68.

Golfers and Labral Tears Although uncommon, tears of the labrum of the hip—the nerve-containing, ligament-like cartilage that lines the hip socket—are periodically seen in athletes (see “Facing the Unknown” in T&C 13.3). This past November, Derek Armfield, MD, a radiologist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, presented findings on labral tears in golfers at the Radiological Society of North America’s annual meeting. Although the research involved professional golfers, who tend to be in a population where labral tears are commonly misdiagnosed as arthritis, he noted the importance of considering the differential diagnosis when treating golfers of all ages. In his presentation, Armfield also noted that MRIs were very accurate in being able to detect labral tears, which were confirmed by arthroscopy, but they were not terribly precise in being able to show the extent of the tear. This is, however, a great improvement over what was offered just a few years ago: a diagnosis of arthritis that was eventually treated with total hip replacement. Armfield and his colleagues are expanding their studies, which were conducted on eight professional golfers. The research has not been published to date.

New Articles on the Triad Several research articles were published this summer and fall on the female athlete triad. Researchers at Marquette University looked at the role principles of physical therapy can play in the prevention, assessment, and intervention of the syndrome (“The Female Athlete Triad: An Emerging Role for Physical Therapy.” Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy. Vol. 33, No. 10, pp 594-614, Oct. 2003). The article also provides an excellent overview of the physiological and physical changes that take place as part of the triad. Addressing the detection of women who may be suffering from some or all of the effects of the female athlete triad, Michelle Donaldson, MD, in the Department of Orthopaedics at the Park Clinic, in Livingston, Mont., published an article in the Sept.-Oct. 2003 issue of Orthopedic Nursing titled “The Female Athlete Triad: A Growing Health Concern” (Vol. 22, No. 5, pp 322-4). Much of her advice readily transfers to athletic trainers working with female athletes. Researchers from LSU published an article with the provocative title “The Female Athlete Triad: No Pain, No Gain?” in Clinical Pediatrics (Vol. 42, No. 7, pp 573-80). And for those who are fluent in French, there’s a fourth article whose title translates as “The Syndrome of Anorexia, Amenorrhea, and Osteoporosis in the Female Adolescent Athlete” that appeared in the French journal Archives of Pediatrics (Vol. 10, Suppl. 1, pp 209s-10s, May 2003).

T&C’s Above The Call Award Jan/Feb 2004 Winners

EFISPORTSMEDICINE.COM

A HeartStarting Story By Guillermo Metz here are two important ingredients that go into managing a crisis: being able to act under pressure and having everything you need to handle it. If either is missing, the crisis will only intensify. On Nov. 1, 2003, the Hobart College men’s soccer team hosted a game against Fredonia State. Following the game, Ralph Parker, a 90-year-old spectator, went to the locker room to congratulate his grandson on a game well played. While walking back through the gym’s lobby, Parker collapsed. Andrew Martland, a student athletic training aide, saw Parker fall and ran downstairs to the athletic training room. There, Stephanie Sibeto, MEd, ATC, Hobart and William Smith Colleges’ Associate Athletic Trainer, and another student aide, Matt Yarger, were just returning from the soccer game. Sibeto called 911, told Yarger to grab the automatic external defibrillator (AED), and together they ran up the two flights of stairs to the gym lobby.

ATCs and AEDs team up at Hobart-William Smith to save a life. Student athletic training aide Matt Yarger practices using an automatic external defibrillator while Hobart and William Smith Athletic Trainers Stephanie Sibeto and Doug Reeland look on.

They arrived on the scene to find Parker without a pulse. Sibeto put the pads on him, administered a shock, then started CPR—she gave the breaths while Yarger applied compressions. Within seconds, Parker’s pulse returned and he started to breathe on his own. An ambulance arrived, rushing Parker to the hospital, where he made a full recovery. Because Sibeto and her aides acted quickly and had the necessary equipment, a life was saved. This issue’s Above The Call Award goes to Sibeto and Doug Reeland, ATC, Hobart and William Smith’s Head Athletic Trainer, who spearheaded efforts to make AEDs available on the school’s campus—and made sure his staff, student aides, and coaches were well trained. We also give special recognition to the two student aides, Andrew Martland and Matt Yarger, who acted quickly and professionally to contribute to saving Parker’s life. As Hobart’s Athletic Director,

ATHLETICBID.COM

Mike Hanna, says, “I’m very impressed with, but not surprised by, their reaction to this situation.” That’s because Reeland and Sibeto have worked together for the past 10 years to create a top-notch athletic training program with all the amenities, while working within the fiscal realities of a small NCAA Division III institution. “A few things came together in that incident,” says Hanna. “One was the response of our student trainers. Because of the training Doug and Stephanie gave them, Andrew and Matt knew exactly what to do. The second thing is that a few years ago we purchased two AEDs.” Between them, Reeland, who’s been at the school since 1979, and Sibeto provide services for 21 sports. HWS doesn’t have an athletic training educational program, so Reeland instituted a student aide program to train work-study students in areas Guillermo Metz is an Associate Editor at Training & Conditioning.

such as first aid and emergency first response. Every year, he and Sibeto spend a series of Sunday afternoons training the student aides. Most years they have about eight—this year there are 18. According to Sibeto, the student aides are extra eyes and ears at practices and games. Although not certified to provide hands-on care, they are educated and trained in emergency response. “We train them in CPR as well as how to use the AED,” says Sibeto, “and we talk with them about some of the things they’re going to see, like how to deal with concussions. “We do scenarios where we practice responding,” she continues. “We tell them that an emergency could happen to anybody, and run through scenarios where there’s an incident in the stands. It could happen anytime, anyplace, to anybody. You just have to be prepared.” That philosophy spurred the athletic trainers to purchase two AEDs two and a half years ago. They were ahead of the curve—at the time, only two other colleges in New York had them. Even today, it is estimated that only about half the colleges and universities nationwide own an AED. But Reeland saw their importance in a couple of incidents, the most prominent being when RIT lacrosse player Todd Bernhardt died as a result of getting hit with a lacrosse ball at a scrimmage on the

8 ◆ T&C J A N / F E B 2 0 0 4 ◆

University of Pennsylvania campus in 2001. “He was standing behind the cage and he was hit in the chest with the ball,” says Reeland. “That produced an arrhythmia—it’s called commotio cordis. We were at Penn about a week after that incident, and everyone was really shaken up by that. When we came home, the parents of our athletes were buzzing, asking ‘Why? How can we protect the kids better?’ “Well, the AED is a very simple thing that shocks the heart and restores the rhythm,” says Reeland. “In theory, it could have saved his life. So I looked into getting a couple here.” At the time, each AED cost about $2,500, money the athletic department didn’t readily have, even though Hanna agreed about their importance. Hanna and Reeland made a pitch to the Statesmen Athletic Association, an alumni group of Hobart athletics supporters, which gave them $5,000 to purchase two units—all within about a month of the RIT player’s death. But Reeland didn’t stop there. He and Sibeto applied to be part of the state’s Public Access to Defibrillation (PAD) program, whereby they would become certified AED instructors. Now, they teach all the HWS coaches, as well as the student athletic training aides, in the use of AEDs (in addition to CPR). To date, they’ve certified 62 people on campus.

ATHLETICBID.COM

They’ve run through dozens of scenarios, making sure everyone will be prepared to act when necessary, but they had never actually had to use an AED until this past November. Their diligence helped ensure a positive outcome. But no matter how many times they’d practiced it, the experience still left Sibeto shaken. “It was very emotional,” she says. “I had a rough two or three days. I dealt with it by talking with family and friends. Everybody wanted to tell me I was a hero, but I didn’t really feel like one. I just felt like I was doing my job.” She also turned it into a teaching experience for her student aides. The day after the incident, Sibeto was scheduled to give one of her seminars to the student aides. She was still feeling shaken up, but realized that talking about what had happened would be beneficial to everyone. “I just told them what happened, without a lot of details, and stressed that when it came time for them to do their CPR and AED certification, they should understand the importance of it all, and how lucky they are to be able to help somebody.” “That took a lot of moxie,” says Reeland, “to stand in front of 20 students and tell them, ‘Hey, this is what happened. This is real. Here was a 90year-old man, and he had a heart attack. Now he’s back home. All because we did what we were trained to do. This stuff is real.’”

Above The Call Award Reeland says he feels great that everything they put into place worked to save a life, but he gives all the credit to Sibeto and the student aides for handling the emergency. “I’m proud of having initiated the program,” he says. “Saving the grandparent of an athlete is just as important as if we’d saved an athlete. Our training paid off. That

I just felt like I was doing my job.” makes me feel great, and I’m very proud of Stephanie. It was a team effort, but you have to have a leader, and she was the leader.” Reeland, Sibeto, and Hanna also met afterwards to see if there could be any lessons learned. “Everything was done correctly,” says Hanna. “They responded quickly and did everything they had to do, but there was one more thing that has come out of this. In the gym, where the gentleman was when he had a heart attack, there wasn’t a campus telephone nearby. There are lots of telephones there, but they’re all inside coaches’ offices, which on a Saturday afternoon are locked. So one of the things we learned is we need to have additional campus phones in the athletic center that are easily accessible, and we’re working on putting those in now.” Reeland and Sibeto, along with Hanna, will continue to do everything they can to make sure they have all the ingredients needed to handle any crisis that comes along—whether it involves studentathletes, staff, or fans. They’ve proven that hard work and preparedness pay off. ◆

& Bands and Chains, Revisited In the September 2003 issue of T&C, in the article, “Exploding with Bands,” author Bryan Dermody criticized a research article that was published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, 16(4), titled “Electromyographic and kinetic analysis of traditional, chain, and elastic band squats,” by William Ebben, MS, MSSW, CSCS*D, USAW, and Randall Jensen, PhD, FACSM. The authors of that article wished to respond to some of Mr. Dermody’s specific points: ◆ Mr. Dermody wrote, “the researchers concluded that squats with chains and bands offer no advantages over traditional barbell squats.” In fact, we report in the practical application section of our article, “research results suggest that variations of the squat that incorporate chains or elastic resistance offer no advantage or disadvantage compared with the traditional squat according to the variables assessed.” “Protocols other than the one used in this study may result in different outcomes.”

The FUTURE of Injury Tracking is HERE “The most advanced technology at an affordable price.”

WEB-BASED Injury Tracking NOW Widely Used by PRO SPORTS Proven Since 1995

◆ Mr. Dermody wrote, “… the amount of chain and band resistance that was used accounted for 10 percent of the total bar weight ... that is hardly enough resistance to negate the deceleration phase. The athlete would not be able to accelerate through the entire movement, and thus not receive the training benefit of increased [rate of force development].” In fact, in our study, the chain and band loads were 10 percent of the “traditional” load, calculated via force platform at the mid-point of the range of motion of the squat. This results in a resistance of approximately 20 percent greater than 1RM at the top of the range of motion. We calculated the load this way due to the fact that the load is variable (less in the descended and more in the ascended portions of the squat), and it would be an accurate comparison only if we quantified the average “load” through the range of motion since data were acquired through the full range of motion. As a result, the percentage of chain and squat loading appears very similar to what Mr. Dermody recommends in his article for the load at the top of the range of motion of the exercise.

LETTERS Mr. Dermody correctly implies that it is not possible to accelerate through the entire movement/range of motion. Indeed, deceleration is required to ultimately stop the movement. However, how much force is required depends on the length of the deceleration phase as well as the momentum of the movement being halted (according to Newton’s Second Law of Motion), because the force applied varies inversely to the time of deceleration. The amount of force necessary is strictly a matter of opinion, if there is no stated time requirement. Furthermore, Mr. Dermody provides no data indicating that his recommendations will significantly alter deceleration differently than what might have been provided in our study. ◆ Mr. Dermody stated that the intensity of the load is not listed in the article. In fact, the article clearly states that the subjects performed a 5RM exercise, which indicates that the subjects performed five repetitions at the maximum load they could lift.

◆ Mr. Dermody wrote, “... the length of the study was one training session. It is extremely unlikely one would see profound results from any method of training after only one training session.” Our study was not a training study; there was no suggestion that it was. Rather, it was a repeated measures design, created to assess the acute effect, as evidenced by the outcome variables measured (the different forms of the squat during a single testing session), in order to determine the acute differences associated with each method. These facts are described in our article. ◆ Mr. Dermody wrote, “I believe there were some serious flaws in the design of this study.” The manuscript was published in a peer-reviewed journal, which is very unlikely to happen if the research design was flawed. The research methodology we used is one that is taught in many graduate-degree programs and has the approval of the profession. ◆

SPECIAL ADVERTISING FEATURE

Joe Rubio’s Rubio’s Training Training Tip Tip Joe for the the Month: Month: for ew things are more frustrating for a coach than to have athletes who, through no fault of their own, fail to live up to their potential. They may get injured, race poorly in the championship season or fail to improve beyond the early season meets. Whatever the reason, the results fall short of the goals the athlete and coach had when the season started. In many cases it is the training program the athletes follow which causes them to race so poorly. As a coach, it is extremely disheartening to know deep down the kids trained hard, they did everything you asked of them and they still raced worse each week as the season went by.

F

For a program to truly succeed, the workload assigned must be appropriate for each particular athlete at the correct point of the season. When an athlete develops injuries or falters badly as the season nears its end is invariably because the coach has failed to adequately estimate the workload that is appropriate for the particular athlete. The workouts assigned were generally too long, too fast or did not provide adequate recovery. The result was an athlete who under-performed or worse, watched from the stands because they were hurt. The cause usually boils down to a coach who failed to use the principle of “progression” properly. What is progression? Progression is a system of planning specific increases in training workloads at regular intervals throughout the season as an athlete gains fitness and can better tolerate these planned increases. Instead of starting the season with workouts too difficult and inappropriate for the athlete (which leads to injury or a plateau of fitness), progression allows the coach and athlete to plan for and achieve the desired level of fitness at the right time of the year while maintaining the athlete’s health along the way. There are three aspects of training that a coach can manipulate through progression to correspond with increases in fitness. The coach can increase the volume of work accomplished at a particular pace, the coach can increase the speed with which individual reps are performed or the coach can decrease the recovery taken between work bouts. Systematically increasing the volume of work performed at a particular pace is the first option. An example is an athlete who is asked to start the season with 400’s being accomplished at their 2-mile race pace. The athlete is

then assigned a longer rep at the same 2-mile race pace each month. The result is that by season’s end the athlete is able to tolerate a significantly longer rep at the same pace than they could safely manage a few months earlier. The athlete has progressed the length of rep they can successfully tolerate at 2-mile race pace resulting in a fitter athlete.

workout such as 200’s at their 800m race pace with a 600 jog recovery and finishes the season with 200’s at the same 800m race pace but only requiring a 200m jog recovery, then this athlete has decreased the recovery needed to accomplish a set workout at 800m race pace. This indicates a greater level of fitness.

Sample Progression #1. The length of the individual rep increases each month, while the pace for each individual rep remains constant.

Sample Progression #3. The recovery between each individual rep decreases each month, while the length and pace for each individual rep remains constant. Month 1: 200 at 800m race pace with 600 jog Month 2: 200 at 800m race pace with 400 jog Month 3: 200 at 800m race pace with 200 jog

Month 1: 400’s at 2-mile race pace. Month 2: 800’s at 2-mile race pace. Month 3: 1600’s at 2-mile race pace. The second way to safely progress fitness is by increasing the pace or speed with which the athlete performs a set distance or rep. An example is to start the season by doing 400m repeats at a particular pace or speed and then systematically making them faster each month. If an athlete is able to run 400’s at 2mile race pace at the start of the season and then is able to progress and run 400’s at 800m race pace by the end of the season, this athlete has successfully progressed the speed with which they can cover a set distance indicating greater fitness. Sample Progression #2. The pace of each individual rep increases each month, while the length of each rep remains constant. Month 1: 400’s at 2-mile race pace. Month 2: 400’s at 1-mile race pace. Month 3: 400’s at 800m race pace. The final way to progress fitness is by decreasing the length or time of the recovery taken between individual reps. If the athlete starts the season with a comfortable effort

The body is amazing in its ability to adapt to ever increasing workloads. In each sample progression listed above, the athlete is asked to do a significant workload in Month #3, but they start with a very manageable workout level in Month #1. This allows the athlete time to slowly adapt. The athlete following the sample progression would obtain their greatest fitness at the end of the season and be able to use this increased fitness to run their best performances at the most competitive meets of the year. The key component is starting in Month #1 with workouts that are well within the capabilities of each athlete, then systematically raising the workload levels each month allowing the athletes to adapt as their fitness increases. This is a fundamental training element in helping athletes realize their true racing potential at the right time of the year and is the foundation of all consistently successful training programs.

explosive power > acceleration > speed > flexibility > strength > quickness

EXPLODE They call it the first step. It’s how you beat your man to the puck, off the dribble or to the line. And when the game hangs in the balance, quickness makes the difference, especially when you’re going one on one.

Only a select number of athletes are born with explosive power, but for those with desire, dedication and the dream, Plyometrics can make the difference between winning and losing. More and more of the world’s elite players are turning to Plyometrics to build explosive power, acceleration, flexibility and strength, but it’s not only for the pros. With the help of PowerPlyos, you can develop the quickness and power necessary to take you to the next level. No matter your sport, PowerPlyos allows you to perform drills for both concentric and eccentric actions through multi-joint movements, resulting in dynamic muscle contractions. Through an array of jumps, hops, flexions, extensions and trunk rotations, the PowerPlyos lets you build the muscles and muscle memory to help you excel on your field, rink or track. Calling us is the first step: 1-866-672-1700

Voted “Best of the Best” in Testosterone Magazine The Xvest is considered by many of the Major League strength coaches to be an essential tool for “the edge”. “We have used the Xvest and have found it to be the best, most comfortable and effective weight vest. We have seen measurable improvements in range of motion, strength and power.”

Gene Coleman, Ed. D. Strength and Conditioning Coach – Houston Astros

Lance Berkman Houston Astros

If you want to play XPLOSIVE, you have to train

XPLOSIVE !

Xvest can be used in your strength, conditioning, speed, agility, plyometric and sport specific drills or training. You will see dramatic improvements in speed and power as well as conditioning and strength. A few Major League Baseball Teams using the Xvest: 2002 World Champions Anaheim Angels Houston Astros (Divisional leader) Chicago White Sox (Divisional leader)

Vertical Training— The Key to Energy System Development (ESD) In a Safe And Controlled Environment. by John Weatherly

A

thletes get plenty of joint stress from lifting, running, jumping and sprinting without adding more stress during specific key Energy System Development (ESD) sessions. Athletes today perform exercises for strength, power, speed, agility, and to condition the appropriate energy system(s) for their sport. This can result in cumulative microtrauma from impact forces on knees, hips, ankles and lower back. This is especially significant in the ESD training with the larger athletes of 250-350lbs, that may ultimately lead to overuse injuries. The VersaClimber is the perfect total body non-impact tool to use for specific and very demanding Energy System Development. Just ask one of the world’s foremost performance enhancement specialists. Active / Rest Ratio 1:3 Mark Verstegen is (:45 seconds at a slow pace, step height of 4 - 7 inches) Director of Athletes’ Performance in Tempe, AZ and Carson, CA, as well as, Director of the Performance for the NFL Players’ Association. He is also a former Founder and Director of the International Performance Institute in Bradenton, FL. Mark has worked with a wide variety of world-class athletes for many years. Here’s what Mark says about the VersaClimber:

"The athlete’s time and energy is very valuable. The VersaClimber allows for total body training and the highest metabolic expenditures per unit of time compared to other equipment, making the VersaClimber a very effective and efficient device. The wide range of crossover from our high intensity alactate sprints, all the way through the continuum to training for aerobic power and capacity, is unmatched. The VersaClimber, with its unique combination of degree of difficulty, ease of adjustment, and durability, has won the right to be the cornerstone for our famous lactate power and capacity circuits. Our philosophy is always quality over quantity in both training and investment. VersaClimbers have filled this role admirably over the years. This is a piece of equipment that withstands the most intense abuse and asks for more!" Sport speWork Ratio 1:3 cific interval (:15 seconds at a sprint, step conditioning height of 12 - 18 inches) is achieved by designing and implementing programs of varying duration and intensity with work/ rest ratios or heart rate ranges, for total body Sprint and Power ESD on the VersaClimber. As an example shown above, for basketball, work/rest ratios of 1:3 can be performed by sprinting with arms and legs against gravity and a variable hydraulic resistance for 15 seconds, Circle No. 55

then for 45 seconds perform a jogging in place type of recovery. A conditioning coach has the athlete in a safe and controlled environment. The VersaClimber has no top end allowing endless maximal efforts, unlike many bikes, steppers, ellipticals and treadmills. ESD with VersaClimber • Safe and controlled environment • 100% non impact • No top end • Progressive range of motion • Optional non, partial, full wt. bearing The progressive range of motion and intensity of the VersaClimber allows amazing versatility ranging from closed chain rehabilitation, through reconditioning, and on to very specific and demanding Energy System Development. Keep athletes away from cumulative microtrauma and overuse Active / Rest Ratio 1:3 injuries by (Resume slow pace for :45 making the seconds, step height of 4 - 7 Versainches) Climber a key component for their Energy System Development. John Weatherly holds degrees in exercise science, assisted with conditioning programs for professional baseball, basketball players and the Olympic Training Center.
