PRESENTATIONS:

Bob Alejo

Strength: It’s necessary but to what degree?

Strength as the basis for power- when and when not to focus on it.
Surfing the Force-Velocity curve.
When does strength not become the focus?
Early strength acquisition and implications.

Anaerobic (glycolytic) vs Aerobic (oxidative) training for Anaerobic sports

The science.
Onset of blood lactate- implications.
Does an aerobic base really exist?
Do higher Max Vo2’s result in better recovery from anaerobic work?
Can you increase Max Vo2 with glycolytic (HIIT) training?

Instability Training doesn’t do what you think it does- The science and practical application of training in/with unstable modes.

Not all training is done on unstable surfaces nor is it just relegated to lower body methods.
Most studies appear to show that EMG increases under unstable conditions and is similar to many cases when performing exercises in a stable environment.
There is the thought that If an athlete practices balancing when lifting weights, the result will be an increase in strength and better balance on the playing field. It’s really quite the contrary, in many instances.
Regardless of chronological training age or skill level, instability training with or versus traditional weight training exercises shows no significant advantage for improving athletic performance.

Empowering Women Through Strength Training: The physical and mental skills you build in the training room apply to life outside the training room.

Women have been culturally conditioned to hate their bodies and to focus on how they look rather than what they can DO. Women can overcome this and feel empowered by building physical strength and a strong mindset through strength training. During this talk I will show you how, as there is nothing more empowering than not only feeling, but also KNOWING that you ARE physically capable and STRONG!
