Christian Thibaudeau  World renowned trainer, coach and athlete.

One my biggest influences is an old-school strength athlete named Doug Hepburn. He’s a Canadian lifter from the 1950s (go Canada) who won a gold medal in Olympic lifting and was lifting big weights on the powerlifts (powerlifting competitions didn’t exist yet). He was the first man to bench press 500lbs and was also squatting and deadlifting 800lbs. Hepburn’s system was simple: at every session you do one more total rep on each exercise.

Are you traps dominant and have a hard time engaging your deltoids? Try this one out! The bands hold the shoulders down, reducing traps action. Also focus on pushing FAR AWAY instead of up.

The problem with warm-ups is we often fail to make good use of them.  In this video Mai-Linh suggest a warm-up sequence where you Mobilize – create space, Activate – create awareness and Integrate – create control. This is the premise behind our upcoming Movement Optimization Course.

Christian Thibaudeau has developed a system that I believe is a game changer for sports preparation training. It takes individualization to another level. There are three main profile types in neurotyping : Neurotype 1, Neurotype 2 and Neurotype 3. So how does this impact on training and coaching methods for fast bowler?
