Hey Ben - good to hear from you and great questions. First off, dont change anything you are doing with TCI strength work, let that be independent of the drills and points in this video. Try these plyos and drills as part of your warm up or even in the middle of an easy run. Maybe 1-2 per week.
To help with the calves, be sure to allow the heels to touch/hit the ground. Dont keep them elevated when doing the one leg hop or any of the drills.
Ultimately this should help the calves, but be conservative and ease into doing them.
Great new videos Eric, great content.
In relation to the plyometric style exercises etc. How should they be integrated with the foot work, wobble board and stability disc, in the book?
What would be some suggestions to prevent overloading your calves for someone with an history of shin splints?
Fantastic advice Eric, I will certainly incorporate these drills in my warmup.
thanks for taking the time to put these together.
Great to hear from you and hope you can make it up this way at some point. But you have great running your way as well.
Also, good point on jumping rope. Keep in mind that jumping rope is mostly focused on endurance or jumping for prolonged periods of time (minutes). Where as these drills focus on short, quick, explosive durations of time. Therefore very different. Not right or wrong just two different outcomes and purposes.
Thanks again for chiming in and watching.
The drills look a lot like rope jumping, something I've done for 30 years. But it may have caused my current injury, a torn Achilles. I'm hoping to recover and perhaps visit Jackson Hole. I live two hours south in Green River.
