Using NEUBIE to help muscles work more efficiently and boost performance. Great stuff from Matt Cooper, training out of the Under Armour Fast Twitch facility in Los Angeles! #Repost @12amlabs (@get_repost)
Training point guard JD to absorb force on the plyometric machine.
You need to be able to relax to properly absorb force. You also need to be able to relax to actualize your explosive potential and overall athleticism. Optimizing the length/tension relationship is 🔑
If you are hyper-mobile and loose, you're not going to be able to generate force.
If you are too tense, you're not going to be able to sufficiently relax and perform necessary movement patterns.
Both situations result in a poor athletic outcome and not moving at the @speedofsport.
JD is naturally thickly muscled for his age and holds excess tension. You can see him working out the kinks. This is his main performance deficit from our evaluation that'll need to be focused on.
Here we can train him to relax and absorb force faster then we could with external joint load (necessary in sports). We complement this with deceleration training and body weight force absorption techniques.
The NEUBIE is helping his muscles lengthen and relax as he absorbs said force to properly pattern these movements permanently. What normally would take 3 months can be cut in less than a third of that by getting in at the input level of the nervous system.

Before the Syracuse game last weekend, I said if they upset Michigan State in their game at Little Caesars Arena, I'd get Little Caesars (let's just say...not my go-to pizza choice) for dinner this week. Never tasted so good. This one's for you Cuse! #nevergraduate
So...what after US College graduation? Meet Study & Play USA Graduate Darius. Darius graduated from Wagner College with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Finance. He is currently based with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Florida. There are so many exciting career opportunities after graduation and over the coming months we are going to share some of their stories! Stay tuned! 🎓 🎓 🎓 #studyandplayusa#uscollege

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released 26 year-old WR Allen Hurns. Being only 26, I think Hurns would be a great pick up for the Miami Dolphins. Hurns was also a product of the University of Miami. Should the Dolphins consider signing Allen Hurns to go with Amendola and Wilson? 🤔
