This week’s guest is DeFranco’s gym director of sports performance Cameron Josse. Cameron is one of the brightest young performance coaches in the industry, and at age 26 is one of the leaders in ushering in data driven work on heavy resisted sprints for NFL preparation.
Cameron trained under Joe DeFranco as a scholastic athlete, and eventually joined his staff where he now works with athletes of all ages, including many professionals. Right now, Cameron is doing some of the most advanced speed training around for his athletes, which include a contingent of NFL vets and pro-day hopefuls.
Much of this work centers around what he is doing with the 1080 sprint based on the research of JB Morin, Matt Cross and others on heavy loaded sprinting. Heavy resisted loads are quite a hot-button topic right now, as the research suggests their usefulness but there isn’t the practical case study quota right now to really make people jump in on it. Cameron is doing work right now in this regard, and speaks on his exact methods at length on this potentially effective means of getting athletes faster.
Outside of this, Cameron is doing great work on “game speed” based training, which goes far beyond linear speed ability, and is very involved, dealing with lots of sensory and reactive aspects. Game speed is a relatively new paradigm in the world of sport performance that is of a very high importance to transfer in team sport success.
Our talk today also ranges to vertical jump training and means of building the feet for optimal performance. Overall, this was an amazing talk, and most definitely worth the listen all the way through.
