Effective strength training improves the force generating abilities of the muscles that stabilize and move the body. This results in more economical, coordinated movements, improved muscular power and endurance, increases durability, and promotes general health in order to maximize performance.
Functional Assessment Strength VideosHERE
Functional strength involves resistance work aimed at directly enhancing the performance of movements related to an athlete’s relevant sport(s). Functional strength assessment helps the athlete, and their Coach, to identify areas of need for improving the athlete’s performance in these movements.
Core/Pre-Hab Strength VideosHERE
The core is the group of trunk and hip muscles surrounding the spine, abdominals, and hips. They spare the spine from excessive load, and are essential for the safe and sustainable load transfer between the upper- and lower-body. Pre-Hab exercises aim to allow the body full range-of-motion along the kinetic chain. Such range-of-motion is essential in helping the athlete to stave off muscular and other soft-tissue tweaks and injuries.
Lower-Body Strength VideosHERE
Lower-body strength work includes movements such as lunges, squats, deadlifts, leg press, etc., help the athlete to develop lean muscle mass, stability, and speed - the foundation for the everyday movements of endurance sports and injury prevention.
Upper-Body Strength VideosHERE
Upper-body strength work utilizes compound movements to develop lean muscle mass and increase bone density, leading to improved flexibility and range of motion.
TRX Strength VideosHERE
It requires the use of the TRX Suspension Trainer, a performance training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to complete the exercises.
Plyometric Strength VideosHERE
Plyometrics are exercises in which muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increase power (speed and strength). These types of exercises focus on learning to move from a muscle extension to its contraction in a rapid or ‘explosive’ manner.
