In this combined theory and practical session James will be introducing the curriculum of movement patterns used for developing agility at the Foundation level of the Elite Performance Pathway system.
This session will cover the range of movement patterns he uses for starting and stopping, lateral movements, non-linear movements and various cutting actions as well as a range of games that are used to set the context for more basic closed drills; as well as providing a more engaging, reactive environment that challenges the perceptual-cognitive components of agility.
In this talk James will be providing an insight to the practical application, integration and progression of eccentric training across the Foundation, Development and Performance phases of the Elite Performance Pathway programme at St. Peter’s.
James will provide specific details around how eccentric training fits in to the overall training and session planning, along with a variety of methods of eccentric training including the use of the kBox flywheel training system.
