    Time and tide, truly, wait for no man. In what feels like a blink of the eye, were already at the tail end of the season. After a busy year of training and racing, the off-season cant come quickly enough for weary triathletes. Sacrifices were made all season long: time away from loved ones, loss of sleep, and foregoing beer oclocks. You truly deserve a break! Triathlon is a great sport, but its the personalities in the growing community that make it awesome. This month, get to know Assad, Chelsie, and Wai Yee, different athletes at different stages of their triathlon journey, who are undeniably inspiring to the triathlon community and beyond. This issue also marks Swim Bike Run Singapores first year and my return as Community Editor. I want to thank you for your generous support and readership. I urge you to let us know how we can continue to improve and grow as Singapores homegrown multisport magazine. To those of you who are racing and training through the end of the year, go hard, and be safe. Ill see you out there!

    EXPLOSIVELY EFFECTIVEWHAT MAKES PLYOMETRICS SUCH AN EXCITING AND ENHANCING TRAINING PROGRAM BY SAUL ANTHONY SIBAYAN

    *THE STUDY IS ENTITLED ECCENTRIC MUSCLE CONTRACTIONS: THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO INJURY, PREVENTION, REHABILITATION, AND SPORT.

    Jump training, or plyometrics, is a high-intensity routine involving explosive movements to promote power and strength. However, you cannot simply jump up and down and expect to be powerful. When done incorrectly, plyometrics may cause more harm than good because of its intense nature. Proper landing (for lower body exercises) and catching (for upper body exercises) is very important in plyometrics. That being said, plyometrics offers a number of benefits for the active athlete. Not only does it promote power, it can also reduce the chances of injury. When you land softly, it promotes eccentric contractions. Such movements use muscles to act like springs or shock absorbers. Indeed, a 2003 study which appeared in theJournal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy, reported that an eccentric-resistance exercise protocol not only plays a part in the enhancement of high-power sport activities, it is also instrumental in the prevention and rehabilitation of sports-related injuries and other bone and muscle impairments. Several studies have also found plyometrics to produce a positive effect on the biomechanics of the lower extremities. Combining plyometrics with balance training is also recommended to make the most out of the pre-season training of female athletes. Can plyometrics help you get better in endurance sports? Running and jumping are similar in some respects. They both have a push-off and flight phase. Surging needs more powerful movements. With a progressive plyometric program, you will not only improve your power, but enhance the quality of your movements.

    Do you have what it takes to make the leap? Consult with a health and fitness professional before making the jump to plyometrics.

    STRENGTH & CONDITIONINGFLEXIBILITY STRENGTH AND CORE EXERCISES RUNNING DRILLS

    01 Stand tall, feet at shoulder width apart,

    and look straight

    03 Explosively move towards the box

    02 Do an athletic stance by simultaneously moving your hands down and your legs in a partial squat position.

    04 Focus on landing softly with feet at shoulder width apart for stability.

    WEIGHT TRAINING FOR KIDS With proper adult supervision, resistance

    exercises can be good for children

    Is it safe to engage children in resistance exercises? Sports professionals think so. In 2009, the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) published a position statement in the Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research noting the benefits of a properly designed and supervised resistance training program for the youth. Not only is such a program relatively safe for the young, it can enhance their muscular strength and power, improve their cardiovascular risk profile, enhance their motor skill performance, and increase their resistance to sports-related injuries. Engaging in resistance exercises will help them develop good lifestyle habits, and could even improve their psychosocial well-being. It must be emphasized, however, that resistance training for teens and children must be supervised by qualified professionals who should provide safety guidelines and proper lifting instructions, stated Dr. Avery Faigenbaum in Resistance Training Among Young Athletes: Safety, Efficacy, and Injury Prevention Effects, which appeared in the British Journal of Sports Medicine last 2010.

    With a progressive plyometric program, you will not only increase your power, but enhance the quality of your movements.

    It seemed not too long ago that I assumed the role of community editor. The time has now come for me to hand the baton back to Willie as I move to a new path. Although my stint wasnt long, it has been a deeply enriching one. I am grateful that I was able to learn and grow with the Singapore triathlon community, and I am sure that Willie will continue to serve the Singapore triathlon community well. Take care everyone, and many thanks! Cheers!
