High Threshold Training is what I hang my hat on when asked what my training philosophy is. It is what is missing in the fitness industry. It is the gap between functional correctives and strength training. This video breaks the concept down in detail.
The High Threshold phase is the most important element of the Next Level program. This is the difference maker! I have always said that anyone can make you stronger. Its simple! Science of strength and conditioning and muscle adaptation has determined the ideal sets and reps needed for muscle growth and increase strength. Whats not easy and what I have developed over the past 25 years is the base layer below strength called high threshold. It started when I was training my athletes and improving their function, removing limitations and developing their athleticism with the intent to progress them to strength. The problem, if you want to see improved performance as a problem, is that my athletes achieved their performance goals before even getting to the strength phase. This made me invest my time and energy into this unique style of training and tested it on rotational athletes from all sports. The end result? Better athletes, better core control, pelvic control, scapular control and more efficient transfer of energy resulting in speed and power gains. High threshold training is multi jointed, multi planar, low load, high nueromuscular recruitment, high level coordination and athleticism based movements.
