Jun 03, 2022

By Abdurahmaan Saloojee

Abdurahmaan is a Pre-Script coach from Ottawa who loves reading, traveling, and training.

Reciprocal and Autogenic Inhibition

This concept is an interesting one and quite a rabbit hole to dive into. It has many applications, but I have distilled it down to basically being a more efficient way to warm up the body for exercise, specifically resistance training and even more so at higher intensities and loads. 

To understand this concept, first we need to understand that muscles work in pairs that perform opposing actions: the hamstrings flex the knee and the quads extend it; the adductors adduct the hip (wow) and the glute max/med/min abduct it; the triceps extend the elbow and the biceps flex it, and so on. These muscles when paired are agonists and antagonists: the agonist is performing the contraction and the antagonist is the opposing muscle group.

APPLICATION IS LEARNING

APPLICATION IS LEARNING

"The great aim of education is not knowledge, but action"

This impressionable line caught my attention recently and I find myself referencing it over and over again.

As a subscriber to this newsletter you’re likely someone who is passionate about continuing their education. Higher education, continued education courses, books, podcasts, and articles can all hold a tremendous amount of value when it comes to learning and improving our skill set as coaches. Understanding basic principles and having a general knowledge about how the human body works is essential to being a valuable coach. The issue arises when we are drowned in information but we don’t know what to do with it – we must learn to filter what really matters.
