Hello and welcome! This week’s edition of the ANCORE Weekly covers a dynamic variation of a tried and true movement, how to reduce sports-related injuries, and benefits of falling behind. Let’s get started.
Movement of the Week: Single-Arm Transverse Row with Step Back
The single-arm transverse row is a tried and true exercise. It promotes scapular movement and is a great way to build strength in the shoulders and upper back. In short, it’s an exercise that works well for athletes across a wide variety of sports. Still, if you’re looking to expand your training and add some dynamism, nothing beats adding a step back to your single-arm transverse row.
From the World of Training and Performance
How do you reduce sports-related injuries? It’s a question that’s constantly on the mind of trainers, coaches and athletes. The answer, interestingly enough, may lie in reducing something called “risk exposure time.” Learn more about risk exposure time and the role it plays in reducing sports-related injuries.
If you want to get ahead, consider falling behind. In a world where early specialization seems to be the only way to have an advantage, it might be the exception rather than the rule. Find out why it counts to be a jack-of-all trades in this TED talk from author David Epstein.
Stick to the program. That is, if you’re someone who is thinking of switching or combining your training program with something else. Learn the benefits of keeping with your training program and what do if you are thinking of mixing things up.
A step-back three, a reverse layup, and a slam dunk. To most, those are basketball moves. To Rajiv Maheswaran, they are intricate math problems. Find out how Rajiv and his colleagues are analyzing basketball’s complex moves to help players, coaches, and people everywhere understand how we move.
