In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Athletic Performance Coach for Football at Indiana University, Cam Josse. I am absolutely delighted to get Cam on the podcast today. I was lucky enough to see Cam present at the Coaches vs Covid-19 conference at the start of April and ask him a few questions. His presentation was incredible and we used that presentation as a framework for this episode. After having Jonas Dodoo on the podcast last week, Cam and I focused on max speed for today's focus. If you work with sprinters or with team sport athletes, there will be plenty of information in there for you.
In this episode we discussed...
- Who is Cam Josse (background, experience and current role)?
- Max speed
- Benefits of max speed in team sports
- Testing splits
- Enhancing segments with specific exercises
- Strength speed - speed strength - reactive and elastic ability - max speed ability
- Fitting a sprinters model onto a team sport athlete
- Drilling too much?
- Force vector theory
- Team sport athlete common faults
- The butt-kicker
- How faults can lead to secondary and tertiary issues (injury etc)
- The forward-leaner
- The over-archer
- The butt-kicker
