2013 - Central Virginia Sport Performance Seminar   Minimize

As last year, I wish bring to your attention the upcoming event “2013 - CENTRAL VIRGINIA SPORT PERFORMANCE SEMINAR” that will be held on April 26th and 27th in the campus of The University of Richmond in Richmond, VA.

I will attend to the seminar with two presentations: "Progressing the Jump Exercises: Practical applications for Coaches" and "Dept Jump vs Drop Jump".

There are two options for signing up to the seminar (

1. Seminar Attendee. The Seminar Attendee option is for those who will be able to attend in person. This is the only option that will allow direct contact with the speakers, attendees, and sponsor groups involved with the seminar.

2. Webinar. As a webinar attendee you will have full video of the seminar class room and a real time view of the power point the presenters are using.

Slides of “Shock Method and Plyometrics” & “General Adaptation Syndrome”   Minimize

The interest on the issues treated by Natalia Verkhoshansky in the 2012 Richmond Seminar has gone beyond any expectation.

For this reason we decide to publish the two presentations with the aim to involve more people in the discussion sharing with them this information.

You may download the presentations clicking on the titles or pictures showed below.


1. “Shock Method and Plyometrics: updates and in-depth examination” 

Dr. Yuri Verkhoshansky, has been deemed “The Father of Plyometrics”. Although his main “finding” was that of the shock method, also known as depth jumps. In this presentation, Natalia Verkhoshansky shows the latest contribution and updates of this method, its implications in training the athlete and the taxonomy of Plyometric exercises with the rules of their progressing during the training process.


2. “General Adaptation Syndrome and its applications in Sport Training”

The General Adaptation Syndrome (GAS) has been looked upon as the benchmark for understanding the stress response to training, thus determining the “adaptations” that will be seen in the athletes. On the base of the latest research on GAS, never published in the West, this presentation shows a new and innovative point of view on GAS, areas that coaches can observe, and how this theory has been adapted sense its inception.
