with Alan Stein,Professional Basketball Strength Coachand owner of StrongerTeam.com;Strength & Conditioning Coach, Montrose Christian (MD) High SchoolFemales are three to four times as likely to tear their ACL as their male counterparts. The highest rate of incidence occurs with young women from 15-25 years of age who play sports that require quick change of direction, pivoting, and jumping.Coach Alan Stein's ACL injury prevention program focuses on safety, technique/form, footwork, low athletic stance, slow movement strength training, repetitions, time efficiency, and productivity. Stein believes that agility and footwork training--proper landing, jumping, starting and stopping mechanics--can prevent injuries. When an athlete lands, the weight needs to be equally distributed within the foot, promoting soft landings. Other key items to watch for are enhanced balance, body/joint awareness, movement technique, and muscle strength (especially the hamstring).There are two main non-contact injury mechanisms that have been identified: planting/cutting and straight knee landing. Dynamic flexibility and plyometrics are the ideal way to prepare your athletes for competition and reduce injury. Next is a look at exercises in the weight room that add strength and durability in athletes. Stein also shares various symptoms of ACL injuries; guidelines are the same for women as they are for men.42 minutes. 2008.Available in DVD format only.
