Sport Science Lab Maintains That Injury to USC Football Player is Symptomatic of the Dangers of Conventional Weight Training
Date:9/30/2009

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The injury that happened to USC football player, Stafon Johnson was an unfortunate accident and unusual. But, it's another injury in the weight room to add to a long list of such injuries. In fact, a 20 year study conducted by the University of Arizona revealed that 980,000 injuries occurred in weight rooms. The study revealed a fairly even distribution of injuries to specific body parts, as follows: Hand 23.1%, Upper Trunk 18.8%, Head/Neck 16.4%, Foot 14.6%.

Gavin MacMillan, founder of Sport Science Lab (SSL) and a seven sport athlete, feels the study supports his philosophy that weight training is an antiquated and dangerous way to train and that there is a better way. He points out the study also shows 64.1% or 628,180 injuries, are to soft tissue -- ligaments, tendons and other connective tissue. Gavin states that "this damage to connective tissue from conventional weight training is due to excessive weight loads. Whenever a physical structure is put under undue stress, the weakest link will be the first affected. Humans have limits as to what they can withstand and weight training exceeds those limits with the soft, connective tissue being the first to rupture under the load."

Gavin maintains that none of this is necessary. "The Russians had the answer 20 years ago. And at Sport Science Lab, we follow that lead. We do not believe in traditional weight training, which involves single plane movements with excessive loads putting the muscles under tension. Your muscles are never under tension in sports. Just watch Husein Bolt run sometime."

The crux of the SSL training uses Accelerating Isokinetics, imbalance to achieve greater balance, stimulation of the nervous system -- since the muscles only do what the nervous system tells them to do.

To date, the SSL methodology is proving out as they have trained such notable athletes as Troy Polamalu of the World Cha
