Athletic movements begin with assessment of mobility and testing to determine proper progressive steps to take in targeting what an athlete should prioritize in their customized training. If your athlete has not been properly assessed contact us immediately as we do not recommend any Strength and Conditioning training at any level until the athlete has proper mobility. Very few professionals understand progressive development and most of what they are spending their time on does not translate to production at their skill in competition with specificity to your athlete.
Once an athlete obtains the necessary mobility proper instruction of sequence for the execution of skill can be taught so the athlete can build the proper foundation and joint integrity to reach their potential. Mastery of skill can not be achieved without the proper understanding and instruction of the sequence of physical movements working together in order to execute a skill. You can get where you are going with a flat tire however, it is a much better ride if each tire is properly inflated so that optimal performance can be achieved at executing the skill necessary for the athletes sport.
In order to master a skill, the athlete must have proper timing after obtaining the necessary mobility to execute the proper sequencing of a skill that will result in the most efficient execution of body movement. Strength is secondary to timing and elite timing creates productive strength that allows for mastery of skill execution. Every athlete is different and has varying functional movement patterns that require details testing and training to reach optional timing. Poor timing in execution of a skill will lead to poor performance in competition. Work Smart!
If you are not testing...YOU ARE GUESSING! Any investment into an athlete has to be documents and validated by testing and re-testing. Modification to targeted training programming is derived from proof of performance and growth. If you do not test , there is no way to determine your developmental path is on track.
Athletes have to be held accountable and committed athletes must understand the importance of daily interaction in order to avoid injuries and reach full potential. A one minute mobile based daily survey provides the baseline of tangible information to properly navigate an athletes journey.
Customized targeted training plants customized by professionals who understand how to read the data is the only way to ensure efficiency in training. Athletes can use the Mobile-Based application to receive and complete specific workout plans designed for their individual development.
Trends and growth patterns are different for each athlete. Growth spurts and training plans must be considered when offering workout plans that create muscular endurance and reduce the chance of injury with improper training. Athletes should update their Bio-metrics every month.
Testing and Re-Testing confirms development progression, however, video supports what the numbers are stating and provide a great teaching tool for the athlete to see progression and for professional instructors, recruiters, etc. to see athlete performance in action.
Athlete can manage every team and individual activity through the Athlete Management System and ensure every action is stored, visible and re-portable for various needs along their athletic journey centralizing all documents, activities and interaction with coaches, teachers, professionals, recruiters, doctors, physical therapist, etc.
Test and Train is available to work with individual committed athletes as well as clubs, organizations, schools, colleges and professional teams. We have mastered the practical application and are one of very few that can document and validate our instructional capabilities and results. We can customize your Athlete Management System and train your staff on the Sports Testing process, Data Forensics, Customized Workout Solutions and athlete/business workflow. We provide professional consulting services supported by a web-based, mobile-based Athlete Management System. It is imperative for each athlete to take the Mental MRI in order to build the proper approach and make sure the physical work will benefit the athlete on gameday.
