Explosive Training with free weights, plyometrics and medicine balls will recruit fast-twitch muscle fibers, developing power. Creating speed of movement leads to improved performance.
Ground Based Exercise Movements are used with the athletes and are more productive movements than many others. Training with your feet on the ground makes the athlete stabilize their bodies while increasing strength and body awareness.
Acceleration is the ability to reach maximum speed in the shortest amount of time.
Agility is the ability to change directions without losing speed.
Flexibility is critical to performance and reducing injuries. Dynamic movement through a full range of motion is incorporated.
Multi-Joint Movements have been shown to be the most productive exercises for athletes, the skills that require multi-joint actions. The program at BVU is built upon this philosophy. These exercises are the way to promote the most lean muscle mass, strength and power.
Multi-Demensional Movements are the ability to move in three planes together; side-to-side, up-and-down and forward-and-backward. Develop functional strength in all three planes.
Alternative Exercises are part of working with the injured athlete. Designing programs to create alternative exercises, to train through or around the injury to speed up recovery and returning to sport action.
To provide a well-designed, total training program based on sound physiological principles. Using a sport specific focus, safe and productive training methods are the primary emphasis.
To improve athletes' sports performance while reducing the risk of injury is the objective of this program. The goal is improved performance on the field, court, track and mat.
Creating an atmosphere that leads to the physical and mental development of each individual athlete is the goal of the program.
