Many methods implemented by high school/college coaches are outdated. Old methods focus on certain areas and not others. Old methods are the cause of injuries and musculoskeletal inefficiencies.
Increase functionality and specificity. Prepare athletes better for the rigors of sport. Training this way decreases chance for injury and muscle imbalances.
Machine that helps increase vertical jump and first step quickness- vital for any sport. Vertical jump important part of all sports including basketball, soccer, etc. This machine develops vertical jump, which increases strength along the kinetic chain. Allows training while decreasing pounding of joints and mental exhaustion.
Used by professional and collegiate teams. Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, Duke University, and the University of North Carolina among those who use system. Shows credibility of system.
Vertimax website Vertimax website Pricing is available for those short on funds, standard machine is 1795$. Works with cables the connect to a harness. Perform different motions like jumping, pushing, pulling, horizontal/diagonal abduction and adduction, flexion, extension of all types of muscles.
Shows muscle imbalances. According to sport shows if appropriate muscles working efficiently. Hints to which body parts may be prone to injury. Shows which body parts need more training.
3D imaging to assess posture. Easy, provides visual evidence, allows for full body assessment in one image. From website: “A web based postural assessment system that detects postural deviations and automatically prescribes the correct Mirror Image ® exercises. The system generates a report with the patient's postural images and displacement data along with the correct exercise prescription and logbook.”
Lets the client move during assessment, mimics movement during sport. Allows for a more accurate assessment. Provides more detailed data when compared to flexibility assessments. Works in conjunction with a software system and stores information easily on a computer. 497$, relatively inexpensive.
Form and technique, if incorrect, often compromise these body parts. Developing athletes need to keep knees, hips, and ankles injury free. Standard weight training techniques are not always safe and many athlete’s bodies are not ready to handle the stresses.
Company that makes power training equipment with air as the resistance. Handles on machines allow athlete to increase or decrease air pressure. Safer environment, can train functionally, and encourages good form.
Trains lower extremity and upper core- essential muscles for any athlete. Base of many sports is leg and core power. Allows training in a closed chain, discourages bad form. No barbells required- no additional back or low back pain.
Can train on the sagital and frontal planes. Can train hip flexors, extensors, abductors, adductors, hamstrings, quads, glutes, and calves in variety of ways. Squatting is a key exercise for all sports, but usually done with poor form. Price- 3250$
Squatting and lifting them mimics actions during many sports. Allows training of legs, arms, and core. New way of training incorporates cardiovascular and muscular endurance.
New fad in the exercise industry. Helps with functionality. Equipment is cheap and affordable, with minimal upkeep. Can be used outside in any weather or on any terrain. Price- varies with size, anywhere from 60 to 300$
Mimic daily activities. Allows athletes to train in variety of ways. Can train large groups at same time.
Another daily motion that provides practicality. Requires generating strength from legs, hips, core, and arms. Used by many professional and collegiate teams. Incorporates cardiovascular and endurance strength.
Can change position of legs, body, or arms to shift focus of the exercise. Concentric and Eccentric contractions following each other provides functionality. Cardiovascular aspect more similar to sporting activities.
