Olympic training for our prospective winners in futureWith the Olympic fervour reaching its peak and many questions arising as to why many medals were not gained in the Rio 2016 Olympics,let us discuss the most important topic-Olympic training.
In India,sports are not really considered as a career and there are very few parents who really promote it to the extreme level,forcing a talented child to leave their dreams midway.
Proper coaching,education of technique,goal oriented thinking and proper facilities can promote the fervour even more.
Research work carried out in this area proposed training methods which develop an Olympian body since childhood when the body is very flexible and can be made very fit without the strain.
Many coaches and parents wonder which training methods are safe and effective for kids. School-aged children often participate in athletics and sometimes scholarships are even on the line. Some of the most popular kinds of training for kids are traditional weight lifting, plyometrics, and Olympic weightlifting.
Traditional resistance training methods, which are essentially basic weight lifting programs, are thought to be good for kids because of their proven track record. In addition, traditional weight lifting favors the development of lean muscle mass and strength. In theory, this effect would help child athletes perform better at their sport.
The second group of exercises the researchers studied was plyometrics. Plyometric exercises are seen as closer to what an athlete actually experiences when competing. The basic idea with plyometrics is to develop power, and this end is achieved by mimicking reactions that occur normally in sports.
The Olympic lifts are a hybrid version of traditional weight lifting and plyometrics.
With such rigourous training taken seriously,we can surely bag many medals in many categories from our future generation.
