Today\u2019s episode features strength coach and sport scientist, 杰克·舒斯特. \u00a0Jake is a coach who has brilliantly connected the dots in terms of research, technology and data collection, and transfer to athletic performance in both the team sport and individual (track and field) environment. 杰克·舒斯特 leads the physical preparation of Florida State University sprints and hurdles groups 上 the Track and Field team and serves as the liaison between FSU Strength and Conditioning\/Sports Performance and the ISSM. He works alongside Dr. Michael Ormsbee to oversee several MSc thesis students in applied research projects. I\u2019ve loved talking with coaches about the raw, specific qualities associated with high performance sprinting for a long time. \u00a0Although sprint derivatives are of the highest importance in getting faster, every coach I talk to is invariably interested in things seen in jumping or resistance exercise that could deliver transfer to speed and execution 上 the track or field of play. \u00a0After all, that\u2019s the reason we train. In this regards, 杰克·舒斯特 is an expert in blending data from tools such as the force plate and Nordbord hamstring unit, and integrating it into what is seen in 上 -track performance. \u00a0He also has great wisdom in how this process works in getting field sport athletes to their highest performance. On today\u2019s podcast, Jake delivers pragmatic information 上 asymmetry, force development in jump tests, isometric and hamstring training protocols for sprinters, approaching general strength means for track versus team sport athletes, and more. \u00a0As a former strength coach for track and field, this is 上 e of my favorite podcasts 上 the topic to date.\u00a0 Today\u2019s episode is brought to you by SimpliFaster, supplier of high-end athletic development tools, such as the Freelap timing system, kBox, Sprint 1080, and more. \u00a0 Key Points: \tSome recent lessons Jake has learned working as a strength and conditioning coach for track and field \tSome of the quantitative things that Jake looks for using KPI data in regards to speed and sprinting \tAsymmetries, when they are a big deal and when they aren\u2019t \tTop KPI movements in transfer to speed \tBuilding performance in a individual sport athlete (such as track or swimming) versus a team sport athlete \tEccentric and isometric training concepts \tJake\u2019s attitude towards maximal \u201cgeneral\u201d strength work in training track speed, (squats and deadlifts) \tTraining track and field or team sport athletes based 上 squat patterning dominance versus deadlift patterning dominance \tJake\u2019s thoughts 上 velocity based training Quotes: \u201cWe try too hard to put people into boxes in training, and it just doesn\u2019t work that way\u201d \u201cWe try to look at the stability of asymmetries, we aren\u2019t trying to get someone from 15% down to 10% that might not be a productive task, but if someone is normally 10% and 上 e day they show up at 20%, then maybe we need to go to the physio table to make sure you don\u2019t get hurt.\u201d \u201cOn the Nordbord our greatest asymmetry came in our horizontal jumpers\u2026 they have bigger asymmetries than our high jumpers\u2026. their takeoff leg hamstring was stronger\u201d \u201cWe can cause more damage and injury risk by correcting asymmetries than leaving them alone\u201d \u201cSupine single leg ISO push has huge transfer to 100m sprint proficiency\u201d \u201cWe know that longer fascicles means less injury risk; eccentrics yield longer fascicles\u201d \u201cThe most important thing we can do as practitioners is provide our athletes the ability to work 上 their skills as much as possible, and from a physical preparation standpoint the second best thing we can do is to bring them to the pitch healthy and ready to get maximal velocity exposure as often as possible\u201d \u201cOlympic lifts are not as difficult to teach as we make them out to be\u201d \u201cIf you 上 ly have two coaches in the room and you are spending half of your time and energy pulling strings out of boxes, then you are not doing a service to your athletes\u201d About 杰克·舒斯特 Coach 杰克·舒斯特 leads the physical preparation of FSU sprints and hurdles groups 上 the Track and Field team and serves as the liaison between FSU Strength and Conditioning\/Sports Performance and the ISSM. He works alongside Dr. Michael Ormsbee to oversee several MSc thesis students in applied research projects. A Boston native, Jake lettered in Wrestling and Lacrosse for McDaniel College in Maryland before finishing his undergraduate degree at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam and completing a Masters in Exercise Physiology & Nutrition from world #1 ranked Loughborough University in England. Along the way, Jake completed internships with Nike Boston, the Dutch Olympic Federation, and Cressey Sports Performance where he worked with MLB 所有-Stars. After spending the 2015-16 season working with New Zealand Rugby through their silver medal Rio Olympic campaign, Jake served as Performance Director at USA Field Hockey immediately prior to moving to Tallahassee to be closer to his family. Jake is currently remotely completing his Doctorate under Dr. John Kiely (UK) in Elite Sports Performance with a focus 上 speed and power, and does consult work in this area for several NFL, NBA, NHL, and international Rugby teams.
