Science, practice and context
Lifting the cover on the forgotten factor in linear locomotion
Deceleration comes with huge eccentric demands creating damage and fatigue. Injuries often occur at the initiation of ground contact during braking. So start doing this quality justice!
Braking actions need huge force outputs, but to be optimally effective in context, we need to develop some key movement skills, not just capacities
Understand how to profile deceleration, assess movement skills and coach to enhance outcomes. Its time to move forwards from "sprint and stop on this line"
Why is it that we have so poorly explored a movement which:
No longer is on pitch training just exposure to straight line sprinting and some A-skips. 21st century sport, and training is moving on
For most, the next step is deceleration. It's simple to add to speed training and highy impactful on pitch because of how it creates opportunities for other actions
If all you are currently doing is asking athletes to decelerate to stop on a line, or to sprint up to a cone, turn around and come back then this is exactly what you need!
