Combining Injury Prevention Training with Conditioning
The Santa Monica Sports Medicine Foundation is a pioneer in ACL Injury Prevention training. Their “Prevent Injury and Enhance Performance” program utilizes five athletic stations to develop the strength, power, speed, and neuromuscular skill set and joint alignment to help reduce ACL injury. The stations include warm up, strength, plyometrics, agilities, and stretching, and include attention to soft landings and aligning the knee to midfoot. I have added my own ACL Injury Prevention Training on the Beach to develop neuromuscular control and strength, while utilizing the added challenge and softness of the sand.
