2018-11-14T21:31:11+00:00August 1st, 2018|

Explosiveness starts in the Achilles tendon. The ability to explode out of the gate, jump higher and cut faster starts at the ankle. And when we talk of the ankle, we’re talking about the Achilles, which connects your calf muscles to the heel bone. The role of the Achilles is to perform plantar flexion, which means pushing off with toes and foot.We know strengthening muscle improves performance, but we often forget about the role of tendons – which are just as important, if not more.Think of your Achilles tendon as a rubber band. A rubber band is stretched first before [...]

Nutritionists can create meals that are designed for different functions. Depending on the time when the food is consumed, it plays a different role. It can easily be a recovery meal, or a meal which will be used as fuel for performance. One of the most basic things that athletes [...]

Increase Speed Through Isometric Exercises

2018-10-12T23:10:06+00:00July 10th, 2018|

Speed rules. No one can argue this. It doesn’t matter whether your sport is football, baseball or lacrosse, you can’t deny the advantage speed can provide over the competition. Traditionally, speed training has consisted of sprints and plyometrics to not only increase speed but power and agility. While that type of training can help you get faster, it’s not the only way. In fact, relying strictly on repeated bouts of jumping and running can be counterproductive over the long term as increases the chances of overtraining and injuries the more you train. Another option to consider to complement your training [...]

Benefits of Dynamic Warm-Ups

2018-10-12T23:11:44+00:00April 27th, 2018|

Strength and conditioning coaches and trainers are involved in a constant search for top ways to improve sport performance, where it is adult or youth athletes. All things being alike, a bigger, faster, stronger, more conditioned athlete will rule best on the playing court or field.

This leads to the obvious question: what is the best way is to [...]

It’s common practice these days for athletic trainers to implement strength training for youth sports. Today, you’ll often see weight, speed and agility training programs integrated into football and soccer programs; even for the youngest of athletes. Over the past decade, there has been a fair amount of studies conducted on the benefits of strength training for young athletes, and the research is clear that it greatly benefits sports performance while not stunting growth or impairing mobility. But there is a proper way to structure a program. Treating young athletes like miniature adults, for example, is a mistake. Below are [...]

You want to be quick. You want speed. What athlete doesn’t? Whether it’s the ability to catch an opponent or explode out of the blocks, anyone who competes desires that sort of athletic performance. The road to better speed starts at the hips. It’s why endurance athletes, power athletes, and everyone in between incorporate cleans, box jumps and speed training bands into their workout regimen. Explosive, strong and dynamic hips are the keys to a burn-your-opponent kind of speed. Flexible hips allow you to get your body into the most advantageous position in order to explode from a stop and [...]
