Using the word athleticism may sound good, but it doesn’t tell us a lot about what that actually means! Sure we have the Merriam-Webster definition of athleticism as, “the combination of qualities (such as speed, strength, and agility) that are characteristic of an athlete.”
The thing though is that anyone would benefit from possessing these qualities but it also doesn’t tell us what athleticism actually looks like in a real training program. That is what leads to some crazy social media exercises being called “developing athleticism” drills. Just running, jumping, or doing what appears to be explosive exercises doesn’t mean we actually achieve these goals. That is because there still has to be intent and purpose behind everything we do.
That’s why I am glad I can actually bring a real expert in the area of functional training and building true athleticism to our DVRT community. We have had renown strength coach, Robert Dos Remedios (affectionately known as Coach Dos) contribute to our DVRT content before, but I wanted to bring him in to specifically discuss what athleticism is and how it can be truly developed in the gym.
Avoiding many of the common mistakes that not only make our training less efficient, but also can set potential problems for us in the future is what I want to help people avoid. So, I hope you will check out the interview I did with Coach Dos and you can reference some of the drills we discuss below the interview as well!
