Coach's Corner: Stretching Might Be Bad For You?

Announcements Posted about 11 years ago

Our community continues to grow and provide great insight into all aspects of coaching. From “the best defense for youth organizations” to “the first steps as a new head coach”, the CoachMe Community gives much value everyday. The latest post is from Coach Urrego on the multiple views of stretching:

“ As studies continue in the sports world, so does the different beliefs in training and sports performance. Several coaches and trainers have beliefs and ideologies that are used for a foundation on their athletes' regular training cycle.

Dynamic stretching. Static Stretching.

Dynamic stretching is ideally done before a workout and it involves a concise range of motion meant to mimic the movement we make during rigorous exercise. Static stretching involves extending your arms, legs or other body parts to the point of tension and holding that position for a period of time.

New studies have suggested that stretching before activity or competition may inhibit peak performance. While experts have not yet honed in on what it is about stretching that inhibits proper muscle function, studies have shown that explosive muscle performance such as running and jumping decreases with stretching before workout.

Although there are many great athletes who stretch regularly and include stretching and flexibility as part of their routine. These ideas can change the the foundation of a team's workouts and strength and conditioning program.

I honestly do not know what may be the answer, but I am curious about other insights and philosophies. “

-Coach Danny Urrego

We appreciate Coach for his insight. Please tells us how you feel about stretching, the importance of stretching, alternative methods of stretching and other useful habits for player development.

Hello, my name is CoachMe and I help you draw your PlayBooks like a Pro! Soon, I will be available in a browser near you.

CoachMe in it's mobile incarnation has become the fastest growing and most popular PlayBook diagramming platform for coaches and players at all levels worldwide. When we started on this journey in 2011, we never had that in mind.  You can read more about our story here .  But, what we did have in mind was to create a great product, a product that we would be using ourselves. Our passion to share this great product with the community of coaches and players has come a long way. Those members who have been with us at the very beginning can attest to the maturity of CoachMe.  They have witness our commitment to providing the best user experience that helps give them a competitive edge. We are now going to take that commitment to the next level.

Today, we are happy to announce CoachMe™ Web Edition. This is truly the best thing we have ever done. We have been hard at work to bring you the most requested and highly anticipated product by our members and we've been dying to share it with you.

CoachMe™ Web Edition takes communication between coaches and players to a whole new level. With CoachMe, you will have a customized web-portal just for your team. There you will be able to create, share and collaborate on plays between coaches and players doing so in real-time. In your team portal, accessible from any device, you will be able to send messages and do live chats between members of your team. You will be able to share a play privately to one member or blast it to all the members of your team where everyone can comment and collaborate on that same play to perfection. 

But it gets better...
We are not only bringing CoachMe™ PlayBook to the web with all it's awesome features. That alone would not be innovative. So, in addition to CoachMe™ PlayBook, we are going to unleash a suite of products available within your team web portal. Here are a few of them:

CoachMe™ Docs

Organization documents (depth charts, rosters, practice plans, play cards/scripts, stats, workout plans, presentations) can be created, managed, shared or uploaded from existing Word, Excel and Powerpoint files with editing features.

CoachMe™ Live

You draw it, they see it! CoachMe™ Live gives you the ability to draw and animate plays in real-time. Interact with other coaches and players live from your phone, tablet or computer. Forget the meeting room and take the whiteboard wherever you go with CoachMe™ Live.

We will be thrilled to have you on board.

One more thing...
We wanted to create a community where coaches, new coaches and sports fan from around the world can come to learn, teach, share knowledge and experiences amongst each other.  But we did not want just a forum.
