Movement Capacity Series – Strength

This is part three of the Movement Capacity 
Series and today we are talking about strength.   I'll go through the important points for 
consideration, and of course I'll have some   tips for you both for training for performance 
and also for rehab. Ready? Let's jump in. Hi, I'm Selina from MoveMedics 
here to help you move better,   feel better, so you can keep doing what 
makes you happy, for as long as you want. Last week we talked about mobility. 
Today we are talking about strength.   Mobility and strength are easily the two 
most famous movement elements of them all.   Most people know that it is good to get strong. 
If you are trying to get strong for general health   you can probably go about it in quite 
a general fashion, but if you're trying   to get strong for performance, it is 
important that you are specific about it.   Let's use running as an example.

For sprinters, 
they need to be able to generate a lot of force   over a short period of time, which means they need 
power. When you look at a sprinter's physique,   they look powerful, they have powerful muscles 
on them which allows them to explode out of the   blocks and cover 100 metres in under 10 
seconds for men. When you then look at a   middle to long distance runner, they look very 
different, having a lot of muscles actually   is not a good idea for middle, long distance 
running because muscles are heavy and hungry,   and it's harder to carry that kind of mass 
and feed them and sustain over long distance.   Long distance runners need to be able to generate 
sufficient force, decent amount of force,   and sustain it over a period of time.

For them, 
they need to be strong and they need strength   endurance. Different needs, different training. 
I've been watching the Tour de France, I love it.   And one of the commentators shared a 
story where she was at a training camp,   and Usain Bolt, the fastest man himself, 
commented on the preparation of one of his   friends who is a middle, long distance runner, 
this runner's entire preparation before his actual   training is longer than Usain's entire training

Different needs, different training.   So understanding what you need to do what you 
love is important, so that it will allow you to   tailor your training specifically. Now the running 
example, they were quite extreme, most of what you   want to be doing are probably somewhere in the 
middle, maybe more towards one side and you may   need a bit of each, which further reinforces the 
point that knowing your activity is important.   Now as important as knowing what you need, 
knowing what you lack is also important,   especially in rehab. In my 21 years as a physio 
I have never not given some form of strengthening   exercises to any patients. Strength is always an 
issue, so for those of you going through rehab,   if you don't currently have any strengthening 
exercises in your rehab, ask your healthcare   provider "Hey, you know, how about some 
strengthening exercises?" and see what they say.   It may be that you are just not ready yet, you 
may have to let your injuries settle a bit,   let more healing happen before it is appropriate 
for you to start, but there should always be a   plan in place that yes, once you are here, we 
will start you on this, then we will bring you   to this, and we will build you up to that, and 
eventually back to doing what you want to do.   If you ask these questions and you get crickets, 
go see someone else, you deserve better.   Let me leave you with a bonus tip, for good 
movement options and joint health, we want to make   sure we are strong through our entire range of 
movement, so through our entire Current Movement   Sphere™ This is especially important for those of 
you who like to do bendy fun things like split,   straddle, backbend, not only is this important 
for your movement option and performance,   it is also very important for injury prevention. 
In the next video we will talk about balance,   but until then, tell me, what is your biggest 
takeaway in today's video? Leave me a comment to   let me know.

Anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. Which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure?
