Re: Neural Activation Work & Prehab


Hi all,
As the saying goes “Long time listener, first time caller” or in this case “First time poster, long time reader”
With regards, to the concept of neural activation. A coach’s interpretation and application of this concept is dependant upon the outcomes that are trying to be achieved.
In a prehab setting, I think it is about activating dormant muscles and/or trying to retrain movements.
In a strength context, I feel it relates to achieving the desired effect ie hypertrophy, strength, power etc. by manipulating the training variables.
As I said at the start it comes down to the coach and how he wishes to apply it within his program.
