Strategic Weight Training for High Performance Athletes
Strategic Weight Training for High Performance Athletes is a cutting edge educational DVD. It is not just about "how we do it". You not only learn how to design and perform highly effective training regimens used by generations of champions, you learn the sciences behind the techniques that directly impact sport performance.
Are you training with weights just for strength--or athletic performance?
There’s more to preparing for sport competition than just getting big and strong. To win championships, athletes need speed, power, agility, and coordination, and your weight training program can directly impact these fitness components and more!
Coordination, or skill, is perhaps the most overlooked fitness component in strength and conditioning programs, yet the skill factor in strength was identified by scientists decades ago.
Train Movements....not just Muscles
This DVD shows you how to coordinate strength gains into skills like sprinting, jumping, and other gross motor skills inherent in competitive sports.
The focus is on how you can develop your weight training program to transfer to sport performance, and transfer is not limited to strength. With the right regimens, weight training directly impacts an athlete's ability to accelerate, decelerate, change direction, re-position the feet quickly to set positions, and many other movements that offer distinct advantages.
