This same analogy occurs in the back. Specifically, functional training involves: Stretching of these tissues may or may not be important for a specific athlete – but if they are, they may require longer stretches.


Comparison of muscle forces and joint load from an optimization and EMG assisted lumbar spine model: Imposing a stereotyped “ideal” technique will often prevent an athlete from reaching their full potential. While some of these viewpoints have been obtained with field studies of real people, most of these perspectives have emerged from a unique biomechanically based approach.

Two principles guide our approach to stretching: Extreme caution and vigilance is required for successful plyometric training to optimize the performance enhancement effect while avoiding injury through stuadt extraordinary ballistic forces developed and imposed on the body.

The implications of this are: Those with back troubles develop aberrant motor patterns that remain as both a detriment to performance and an impediment to recovery.
