Top 10 Reasons for Sport Performance Training

What's your sport?

Football

The Edge Training Center will be offering football-specialised strength and agility sessions to improve the athleticism of attending athletes.  It has been shown that agility and body control exercise has the largest effect on pre-adolescent athletes.  There is no better time to begin!  Through my program, athletes will improve core stability, footwork, and agility.  During their time at The Edge, athletes will be introduced to basic resistance training for a strength base, as well as concussion safety and injury prevention, coming into the Fall season.  Measurements will be taken at the beginning and end of the program to track progress made.

 

Baseball

Coach Alex has an extensive baseball career, where he has played at the collegiate level as well as independent league professional baseball.  During this time, he payed close attention to his workouts designed by the strength and conditioning coach.  All baseball-focused sessions will be a modified version of what athletes can expect at the next level.  Athletes will be introduced to the basics of power lifts including squats, bench press, and deadlift along with speed and agility training.  Injury risk and shoulder health education is included in this program.  Measurements will be taken at the beginning and end of the program to track progress made.

 

Basketball

Basketball is a power sport along with a cardiovascular sport.  Many people know how to begin a cardiovascular endurance program by going for a run.  However, research has shown that the most efficient way to improve both muscular strength and cardiovascular endurance is by High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).  During this program, athletes will be slowly introduced to interval training, proper techniques, as well as mental toughness.  Measurements will be taken at the beginning and end of the program to track progress made.  

 

Hockey

Coach Alex’s hockey development program is only the most efficient exercises needed to improve your game.  Core stability, lower body power, and concussion safety are the three main parts of the program.  Athletes will be introduced to power development exercises, resistance training, and plyometrics based on their prior training level.  Be the first to the puck with Hockey specific training at The Edge!

 

Wrestling

The main goal of training wrestlers is to increase the strength to mass ratio.  This can be done using researched methods developed by the NSCA.  Coach Alex is well-versed in the latest research developed for strength to mass ratio conditioning.  Body control and resistance training exercises will be most prevalent in these sessions followed by injury prevention and mobility. Measurements will be taken at the beginning and end of the program to track progress made.

 

Soccer

Coach Alex’s soccer development program is only the most efficient exercises needed to improve your game.  Core stability, cardiovascular longevity, and concussion safety are the three main parts of the program.  Athletes will be introduced to power development exercises, resistance training, and plyometrics based on their prior training level.  A unique aspect to coach Alex’s soccer-specific program is attention to knee health and hamstring injury prevention.  These injuries are notably common in both male and female soccer players and, therefore, must be attended to.
