Strength and Conditioning Programs
Our experts create personalized programs to help our clients train with the knowledge and direction they need to produce maximum results. After an initial consultation, our team can teach athletes everything they need to know about strength and conditioning, along with the best methods for their body. Some of these methods include:
- Compound Movements with Accommodating Resistance
This type of training involves resistance through the use of bands and chains, which can increase your strength in a short period of time.
Also known as jump training, this exercise involves exerting maximum force in short intervals of time, and helps athletes become more explosive on the field.
· Medicine Balls
Medicine balls can be thrown sideways, overhead, or behind, allowing an athlete to accelerate the ball with no deceleration time. Athletes can release the ball with intense power with no repercussion, making it a great training technique.
· Push, Pull, Carry
This technique is great to help athletes gain weight and strength, and is typically done during the offseason. Pushing, pulling, and carrying heavy objects shocks the central nervous system into growing muscle quickly.
Short bursts of sprinting, followed by adequate rest, can help most athletes no matter what sport they play.
