When a tennis player or martial artist “yells” they are actually bracing their midline so that optimal force can be generated into the ball or opponent. And you thought it was all for show and the intimidation factor. As a matter of fact, this is just another expression of max force development by generating power from core to extremities. When you’re told to squeeze your ass, tighten your abs, keep your head down, and take a big breath before going into a big squat we’re advocating the same process as master sensei. We’re sticklers of form not just for the sake of safety but because form follows function (this means if you lift better you lift more). The patterns by which the body moves safely through are also the patterns by which our machine is strongest. See the link for a much more eloquent explanation than I could offer. Think about sprinting or jumping as high as possible. You may not realize it but you are bearing down as hard as possible because if your spine is not stable your CNS will not allow you to generate maximum power. So what am I getting at you ask… stop forcing the coaches to REcorrect you for the millionth time. SQUEEZE YOUR ARSE, TIGHTEN YOUR BELLY, AND TAKE IN A BIG BREATH and you will see your numbers go ^.
By the way, why is Ohio the Meccah of fitness?
