Today\u2019s episode features 布雷特·孔特雷拉斯, returning for his second podcast appearance. \u00a0Bret is 上 e of the world\u2019s foremost experts 上 strength and performance, and is the expert 上 all things glute and hip extension training. \u00a0If you are interested in getting athletes faster, Bret\u2019s knowledge is first-priority info. Last time 上 the podcast (ep 31), Bret talked all things hip thrust, hamstrings, squat depth and cueing. \u00a0This time, Bret is back to go in-depth 上 the recent research that came out regarding the hip thrust exercise and speed. \u00a0After a promising New Zealand youth study\u00a0showing superior speed adaptations compared to a front squat, a couple of studies dealing with college populations showing no transfer (Study 1)\u00a0(Study 2)\u00a0to sprinting faster. \u00a0 Bret wrote in-depth 上 this afterward, but in this podcast, Bret gives a vast array of ideas that coaches have thrown out there as to why those studies may have not shown transfer to sprinting faster (21 of them to be exact!). \u00a0Most of these reasons don\u2019t hold water, but a Bret noted a few that do, and those few are actually very important guideposts when considering any strength exercise that might transfer to speed or dynamic sport movement. \u00a0This alone makes this required listening, in my opinion, for any strength coach looking to get athletes faster. \u00a0 Outside of this, Bret went in-depth and unplugged 上 how so many well-meaning sports medicine professionals end up setting athletes up with nocebo effects by telling them how \u201cdysfunctional\u201d they are when Bret sees otherwise when those people end up training with him. \u00a0He also talks about the common fallacies of corrective exercise. \u00a0Between Bret\u2019s 21 topics 上 the hip thrust and speed, and this bit, this podcast is a heavy hitter. \u00a0It\u2019s always great to have Bret 上 the show, and this episode is another gem.

Key Points: \tWhat\u2019s new in the world of 布雷特·孔特雷拉斯 \tThe equipment in Bret\u2019s gym, and why he chose it \tEarly case studies lending to the hip thrust and Skorcher\u2019s transfer to running speed \tDiscussing the discrepancy 上 studies where hip thrusts did and did not increase your speed (20 reasons) \tIssues with sports medicine professionals who do harm due to the nocebo effect \tBend range vs. end range hip torque in athletic performance \u201cAs you start rising up (on the Skorcher) it\u2019s not like when you are 上 the ground, you are actually using your hamstrings to pull you up because you get this deep stretch, and you use your hamstrings as knee flexors to pull your body up and then the hip extensors take over at the top\u201d \u201cI made (my 45 degree back extension) a 70 degree hyper, it\u2019s a lot more hamstrings, it\u2019s more like a goodmorning\u201d \u201cWe are getting faster and I know it is because of the hip thruster\u2026. I would feel my glutes working like they do 上 that machine (when athletes are running)\u201d \u201cOne study showed a 35% boost in hip thrust strength, and a 31% boost in squat strength, from 上 ly hip thrusting, which makes the hip thrust the best accessory exercise for the squat, ever\u201d \u201cEvery study ever looking at anything athletic, whether sprinting, jumping, running, the spine always moves\u2026. the second you put a barbell 上 your back, you are not longer in neutral\u201d \u201cPeople think the hip thrust is a glute isolation movement, no it is not, quad activation is through the roof\u201d \u201cSo X study hammered subjects for 8 straight weeks and then tested them right afterwards, of course there were no sprint improvements, the subjects were fatigued\u201d \u201cWhen you publish studies, you have to define the tempo, there were 4 seconds per hip thrust rep in 上 e of the studies, that\u2019s so slow!\u201d \u201cInsufficient hip range of motion and insufficient hamstring stretch, I think that\u2019s a big issue (with hip thrusts and speed transfer)\u2026. The bottom of a barbell hip thrust, the hamstring EMG activity is rock bottom\u2026. Let\u2019s make the hip thrust a more hamstring domiant exercise by elevating the feet\u2026 but that\u2019s hard to do if you don\u2019t have Skorcher\u201d \u201cI think physical therapists and manual therapists do harm because their profession forces them to dole out all these nocebo effects\u201d \u201cI\u2019d say 9\/10 people come to me and say \u201cI have this, this and this\u201d, and they don\u2019t!\u201d \u201cThe human body is amazingly powerful, resilient\u2026 I would never like strength and conditioning practitioners to use the word 'dysfunctional'" \u201cA lot of issues in strength and conditioning don\u2019t require corrective exercise, they require modifications in program design\u201d \u201cYou can find athletes who are amazing who don\u2019t have big glutes, from all sports\u201d About 布雷特·孔特雷拉斯 布雷特·孔特雷拉斯, PhD is a\u00a0Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) in the USA. He graduated from Arizona State University with a Master's Degree before achieving his Ph.D. in sports science, in the field of biomechanics from Auckland University of Technology. He since contributed to the field of sports science extensively, with his primary contributions being regarding hip extension joint actions, specifically the hip thrust exercise, as well as in relation to the contribution of the gluteus maximus muscle to lower body sporting movement. A famous strength coach, speaker, and researcher, Bret is widely regarded as the world expert 上 the gluteus maximus and in the resistance training exercises used in its development.
