Erik Little, (Bsc., M.A. Coach Education) has been a fixture in performance development, consulting, coaching, and sport resource development for decades. Following many years of high level athletics, Erik moved into coaching, working with a range of athletes and coaches from grassroots to professional and Olympic levels. 

Erik has a special interest in Preparation Conditioning as a parallel component to Training and Competition readiness. His specialties include the use of Plyometrics, MedBall, and Dynamic Posture applications to ensure that performance enhancement is matched with injury prevention. Erik is also the innovator of Polymetrics®, a dynamic posture enhancement method for reducing instability and imbalances.

 

Erik brings his experience and programming perspectives to Plus Plyos in a unique collaboration that will bring Preparation Conditioning to a wide range of coaches and athletes.

WHAT ARE THEY?

Polymetrics® are a form of dynamic posture work developed by J. Erik Little for enhancing performance and reducing injury.

 

In collaboration with Plus Plyos the exercise selections have been organised into the Polymetric Tension System (PTS). The framework for PTS is anchored in Preparation Conditioning and the various levels of preparation and pre-preparation that play a role in performance development and injury prevention.

The PTS method is one of using anchoring and bracing to create high levels of muscular tension while moving through a range of motion. This has the advantage of strengthening the musculature and enhancing tendon elasticity for the movement chains and stability networks in a parallel manner. The result is a reduction of imbalanced and unstable sport skills, higher quality training efforts, and consistent competitive experiences. The use of PTS is woven into the resources and programming available to Plus Plyos subscribers and members and represents a unique collaboration between plyometric progressions and background conditioning.

Watch Matt and Erik delve into the concepts of Polymetrics® and discuss how to implement them into your programs and bridge the gap between strength training and speed.
