Pro Episode # 66 – Glen Cordoza Talks MMA and Movement Principles: Fighter Series- # 2 Today’s episode is the second in our series with MMA fighter/writer Glen Cordoza. Glen again applies the principles of BASL to the lower half of the fighter: moving, jumping up from a sprawl, striking, and kicking. The challenge to strength and conditioning systems for quite some time as been to bridge beyond just getting the fighter/wrestler “fitter and stronger” to reinforcing essential and fundamental movement mechanics. Good technique for any sport ultimately is the best expression of physiology and structure applied to a specific set of demands. The shoulder is the shoulder is the shoulder. It doesn’t matter if you are pulling on a gi or a barbell. The hip is the hip is the hip. It doesn’t matter if you are split jerking or punching.

Pro Episode # 54 – Using the Barbel for Better Safety and Performance in Jumping Based Sports: Part 1 For years we’ve told athletes young and old that the reason we were in the gym was to get stronger and fitter. The solution to torn Achilles, Menisci, ACLs was eliminating “weakness”, or so it we were told. We believe everyone can afford to be stronger, more powerful, and have a bigger set of lungs. And we mean everyone. Yet, the elephant in the room is that athletes still experience a freakish number of non-contact injuries. In fact, ACL injury rates has increased 400% in kids under 12 years old over the past ten years. Female athletes are still tearing inuring their ACLs at nearly 4x the rate of men in college. I mean who cares about your pinche jumper’s knee right? The problem is that during actual sport, it’s hard to see what’s actually transpiring with an athlete’s mechanics at game-level speeds. And it’s even harder to fix nuance mechanical issues while focusing while actually playing. However, it is very easy to see what’s happening in gym/lab setting. We believe that the gym is actually the best place to make the invisible, visible. The gym is exactly the place where an athlete can develop new motor patterns and reinforce those new habits under various demands like load and volume. Today’s episode stars Pro-Basketball player Dane Watts (who get’s dunked on in the video) who has mad hops as you can imagine. http://www.mobilitywod.com/episodes/
