Sports Training on Vertimax

Sports Specific Training:

Sport specific training is simply fitness and performance training designed specifically for athletic performance enhancement. Training programs for athletic performance enhancement could include such areas as strength, speed, power, endurance, flexibility, mobility, agility, mental preparedness (including goal setting), sleep, recovery/regeneration techniques and strategies, nutrition, rehabilitation, pre-habilitation, and injury risk reduction.

A general program should include all of these components and a more specific program may only include a few, depending upon the athlete’s specific needs (based on strengths, weaknesses and/or imbalances) and the demands of the sport they participate in.

Sports Training NLA Logo

This Program is run by our Athletic Director Jacob Phillips, a CSCS through NSCA and Kenny Miller a Level 1 USA Track & Field Coach.

Specific Training vs. Specific Skills

While there may be some sense of specificity to a program designed for an athlete of a specific sport, the truth is that there is a limit to the amount of application/carryover of a sports performance exercise to a sports skill. The most sports specific training that can be done is the sport itself. Sports specific skills practiced for the sport are as specific as one can get.

Take Ice Hockey, for example: there are no exercises that can be performed in the weight room that are more specific to hockey than skating on the ice. The same is true for shooting the puck. However, while there are sports specific skills necessary for each sport, there are also physical skills necessary for each sport. Sports preparation is necessary for the sport specific skills (shooting a basketball, pitching a baseball, etc.) and physical preparation is needed for specific performance enhancement such as foot speed, strength, power, etc.

At NLA, we accomplish SPORT SPECIFIC & SKILL SPECIFIC training with our VERTIMAX UNITS and the ability to mimic the skill movements required to play each sport. The VERTIMAX when used properly can increase SPEED, POWER, AGILITY, REACTION and QUICKNESS in just 8 sessions.

The VERTIMAX allows the athlete to apply resistance at the hips, hands, behind the knees and ankles while performing skills specific to the athletes sport. When the athlete performs CONTRAST skill movements, the athlete is twice as fast and twice as strong! Over time these accelerated skill movements remain and the athlete is FASTER and STRONGER.

These sessions have shown to improve on an athletes abilities throughout the season in all sports. Because the vertimax uses bungee cords as resistance, the athlete is never overworked or fatigued for the next game. A safe and productive device for all ages.

Functional Recovery Training:

Screen Shot 2015-11-17 at 3.02.13 PM

Of all the programs offered at NLA, this is probably our most popular due to the extensive care that goes into each athlete. We are able to completely heal athletes when they have minor injuries as well as when the are released to continue with progressive recovery.

This program is run by our Athletic Director, a National Strength & Conditioning Association Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Jacob Phillips.
The Department Head for this program is Ro Quintero, a NASM PES and CES.
 
Screen Shot 2015-11-17 at 3.02.23 PM

We excel at both preventing injuries and healing them if they occur. We strongly believe in both “prehab” and “rehab.”

Our In-season training provides athletes with the option to stay healthy, keep all the gains from the off season and minimize all those nagging injuries that can last an entire season.

Recovery Training - Coach Rey

Suspension trainers improve balance, coordination, muscular strength, muscular endurance, body composition, flexibility and improves stability in the joints, ligaments and tendons. We use them specifically to improve in these areas.

$160.00 per month

In this program we help keep the athlete healthy throughout the season. Athletes over the course of the season put alot of wear and tear on their bodies with no real recovery process in place.

We specialize in trigger point therapy and vibration plate active recovery to get the body to reconnect, realign and readjust completely.

These sessions focus on helping the athlete COMPLETELY RECOVER and go into the next game FRESH and READY FOR COMPETITION.

BASKETBALL, TRACK/FIELD, SOCCER

 

With these sports starting later we have 90 days of strength and conditioning we can do to get them at their best as the season begins. Our ATHLETE Strength and Performance Training combined with RAW SPEED Training will ensure they are AT THEIR BEST!

ATHLETE STRENGTH/PERFORMANCE

 

Speed, Agility, and Quickness Training for Performance Enhancement

Speed, agility, and quickness are some of the most significant, and visible, components of athletic success. An improvement in the ability to react quickly, apply significant force rapidly in the appropriate direction, and to redirect that force if needed is the ultimate goal of a program to improve speed, agility, and quickness. A carefully designed program that addresses these factors of athleticism significantly improves overall performance and reduces the risk of injury. Speed, agility, and quickness all involve learned motor skills. Although the magnitude of proficiency will vary with each individual, learning the efficient and effective execution of these skills can improve overall athletic ability. This chapter aims to address the significant components of speed, agility/multidirectional speed (MDS), and quickness. Modalities and drills for improving these skills will also be introduced.

THIS IS A YEAR ROUND PROGRAM FOR ALL ATHLETES

In the context of athletics, speed is best defined as the “rate of performance” of an activity. This can refer to any movement or action. In athletics, the velocity at which one executes a movement can be the difference between success and failure. Speed is a culmination of reactive ability, rapid force development, rapid force application, and effective movement technique. Generally, when the force demands of an activity increase, the velocity output of the movement decreases as demonstrated by the force-velocity curve.

The goal of a speed-training program is to move this curve up and to the right, which would mean being able to create greater force at higher velocities of movement. This, in combination with an ability to maintain biomechanically advantageous body and limb positioning, creates an increase in the velocity of movement. Speed of movement greatly affects an athlete’s abilities in regards to linear speed, agility/MDS, and quickness. The following are essential components of a well-designed program to improve speed of movement:

• Stability, strength, and power

• Muscle and joint elasticity

• Joint mobility and flexibility

• Movement technique

• Specialized drills

Whether you compete in basketball, tennis, swimming, baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, or golf WE CAN HELP TO DEVELOP YOUR SPEED – POWER – AGILITY – REACTION – QUICKNESS – STABILITY – CORE – CONDITIONING!

 This program is run by our Athletic Director Jacob Phillips, a National Strength & Conditioning Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists.

Our Performance Department Head is Joe Bates, a NASM PES, USA Level 1 Performance Coach

Ro Quintero NASM PES, CES

Quinn Hogan, a NSCA Youth Performance Coach

You may now sign up NOW for only $199 a month!

This program is NOW available from Monday-Friday 5am-9pm and Sat-Sun 10am-6pm for ALL ATHLETES!

STABILITY, STRENGTH, AND POWER

Stability, strength, and power training help shift the force-velocity curve up and to the right. While stability training develops appropriate balance, strength training improves the body’s ability to create force, and power training aids in decreasing the amount of time needed to create that force. These all have significant contributions in regards to improving speed. When performing stability, strength, and power drills specific for speed development, it is important to include exercises for contributing areas, such as the feet, anterior and posterior muscles of the shins, the core, and hip flexors/extensors as part of a whole-body program. In addition, movements that emphasize powerful plantar and dorsiflexion of the ankle, as well as extension and flexion of knee and hip are also important components.

MUSCLE AND JOINT ELASTICITY

Ballistic movement, as found in speed, agility, and quickness training, is created by a forced and rapid lengthening of a muscle immediately followed by a shortening of the muscle, creating an elastic “rubber-band-like” effect of energy release. This ability to store and release energy is referred to as the stretch-shortening cycle and is affected by the intrinsic qualities of the muscle and the involved musculotendinous junctions. This action is often reflexive, and referred to as the “stretch reflex.” Training the muscle and tendon’s ability to load eccentrically and rapidly release energy concentrically improves the magnitude and effectiveness of the stretch-shortening cycle. This is achieved through power training and plyometrics.

Next Level Athletics – Raw Speed Development

By coachrey | In Sports Training | on February 1, 2016

Next Level Athletics’ “Raw Speed” speed development uses a combination of equipment and a proven training plan tailored to each athlete needs. Whether it is football, baseball, or any other sport, each plan is designed to conform to what the position necessitates. For example, a basketball player would have more intensive agility and more focus in plyometric training to give them the ability to burst across the court quickly. This is also true for age groups and what is needed for development of good habits that will reward the athletes later in their career.

raw_speed_development-nlakaty-1

With the youth demographic there is strong focus on educating correct form and correct exercise, both that promote proper hip extension, proper arm swing, and proper foot strike. With the older athletes, they begin doing more resisted running to develop longer stride length, complimented with assisted runs to get their nervous systems to speed up the processes that are essential to muscles firing and increase turnover rate.

WE ARE OFFERING FREE SESSIONS WITH EVERY PURCHASE AT THIS TIME!

8 sessions - $600 with 2 FREE

16 sessions - $1000 with 4 FREE

24 sessions - $1350 with 8 FREE

Next Level Athletics’ speed development program is complimented with an excellent range of equipment to give athletes the extra edge to push themselves further. Some of the many pieces of equipment are an over speed treadmill that operates at 31 mph at a 40-degree angle. This treadmill can improve your fastest time in just eight weeks.
