La PPG, ou préparation physique généralisée, est un panel d’exercices qui permettent de renforcer l’ensemble du système musculaire, tendineux et articulaire du sportif (haut et bas du corps). L’objectif principal est de prévenir le risque de blessure en proposant des exercices généraux qui participent au renforcement global ainsi qu’à l’équilibre du corps. Cette préparation précède généralement une préparation physique spécifique (PPS), qui consiste en un entraînement précis sur tous les gestes techniques du sport pratiqué. La PPG est généralement pratiquée en première période de travail (développement général musculaire), c'est-à-dire lors de la rentrée sportive, en début de saison. Elle ne doit pas remplacer un entraînement mais doit venir le compléter. Avant tout exercice, il convient de s’échauffer correctement et de pratiquer au minimum 20 minutes de footing suivis de quelques gammes (talons-fesses, montées de genoux, jambes tendues, foulées bondissantes, pas chassés, pas croisés…)

RELATED – Med Tent: Take Care Of Your Kinetic Chain Warmup 1–2 mile easy jog 5–10 minutes of dynamic stretching Main set Three-way squat: In a single-leg stance, squat down and reach hands to three vector positions: 45-degree angle left, straight ahead, 45-degree angle right.

Most cyclists do a good job working their powerful prime pedal-pushing muscles in their glutes and quads both on the bike and in the gym with squats and leg presses. But unless you do a lot of single leg pedaling drills or otherwise consciously work the pedal-pulling hamstrings on the back of your thighs, chances are they’re neglected and relatively weak by comparison. Powerful pedaling demands that all your lower body muscles pull their weight. You can hit your hamstrings with one easy move. As a bonus, this exercise also strengthens and boosts stability in your abs, glutes, and hips, which hold you firmly in the saddle as you hammer down the road. Stability Ball Hamstring Curl Lie on a floor on your back with your legs extended and heels on top a stability ball.

Dry-Land Strength For A Stronger Swim Stroke. If your gym time is spent doing body-building moves or all machine-based exercises, “you’re probably not training what you need to train,” says Vern Gambetta, author of Athletic Development: The Art and Science of Functional Sports Conditioning. A key thing triathletes need to learn, he says, is to “train movements, not muscles” and move away from the concept of training individual muscles. “Connect” and “coordinate” are the new buzzwords, and the right type of resistance work can help your body to do this so you end up being more efficient and less fatigued.

Improve your reactive strength to increase your run economy. We’ve all marveled at those runners who appear to be floating across the pavement in one fluid motion. While there are many factors that play into beautiful and efficient running form, reactive strength is chief among them. Optimal reactive strength allows you to fully take advantage of the elastic properties of your tendons, ligaments and muscles, giving your body the opportunity to store energy when you strike the ground and then apply it to the process of pushing off the ground. The worse your reactive strength, the more likely you’ll be a “plodder.”

The better it is, the less time you’ll spend on the ground, as you spring forward with each quick step. While there is still a place for traditional strength training, plyometric drills that build strength through specific movements help develop a more efficient running stride. Once you’ve got the basics down, Meadows recommends trying the following exercises.
