Week in Review on gillaspytraining.com:
Med balls can be used to improve movement, train the core, improve power in different planes of motion, but more of a hidden gem is how med ball throws prime the nervous system for performance.
I’ve talked about my skepticism for running long distance to get in shape in the past, and one of the reasons being is data like this. I can’t always blame running alone though, I think a lack of preparedness and doing too much plays a big part.
This was a great question and hopefully I was able to deliver a great answer. As I said above, I don’t always think some distance running is to blame, but not having or doing the prerequisites mentioned in this post play a big role.
