Warding Patterns-Essential Training for Clients/Athletes

by Michol Dalcourt


Athletes have been using warding drills for years to elicit athletic gains that can be transferred into sport. A warding pattern is simply maintaining whole–body tension while producing integrated movement patterns (think of a stiff arm in football or a post–up in basketball). Learn the secrets of why this has such great physiological benefits and how we can prescribe warding drills for all clients, including athletes. We'll discuss the physiological rationale for this highly effective style of training, the adaptations that result, numerous examples of warding drills, and simple ways you can incorporate these patterns into your program.
