Podcast #140: Jason Colleran, Muscle Activation Specialist
In this podcast, host Jeff Stanek talks with Jason Colleran about a lot of hot-button topics in the baseball world including the issues with weighted and plyo balls, how the baseball world is in love with creating too much shoulder and elbow stress, questioning whether the quick results that you're seeing will be sustainable, learning how to make the body function optimally using positional isometrics, the mistakes made by coaches and players who rely on motion capture cameras, why stretching too much can make you worse and more susceptible to injuries (and a great alternative to stretching), the myth of running to get rid of the lactic acid and much more!
This podcast is not for the faint of heart in the baseball world. If you're afraid to hear a qualified individual tell you that what you've been doing might be wrong, this podcast is not for you. However, if you're open minded and interested in learning better ways to train athletes as a coach (or a self-coached player), this is a MUST-LISTEN!
