Like his methods or not, it is hard not to agree that Frans Bosch has been one of the most influential coaches in strength and conditioning over the past few years. Since publishing his most recent book Strength Training and Coordination: An Integrative Approach in 2015, Bosch has created a conversation about how strength coaches can help improve coordination and motor learning, not just strength.
In September we focused on his work, and also the work of John Pryor, who has successfully implemented many of the ideas into the highest levels of rugby. Throughout the month contributors helped put together 1 new video, 2 new podcasts and 6 great articles. Below you’ll find links to all our new resources and some highlights from our archives on the topic.
