PERFORM AT YOUR PEAK
Over the course of the last few years we have worked with a variety of teams in a multitude of sports. Below are just a few examples of the progress these teams saw and how that progress relates to their sport:
During Synchro Nova Scotia’s dryland training we observed a 56% increase in trunk stability over the Pre-Season and In-Season blocks. Trunk stability is critical for power transfer in the water.
In the Hockey Off -season for a small group of hockey athletes we were able to increase peak power output through their common interval time by roughly 34%.
Over an 8-week cycle we’ve taken an athlete with the goal of improved aerobic fitness from the 69th Percentile to the 92nd percentile in the 1 mile time trial. We were able to achieve this using a personalized aerobic training program.
Strength & Power
In every sport from hockey to baseball, explosiveness is essential. Explosiveness can be improved by focusing on strength and power development. We are able to build strength and power using movements such as back squats, sled pulls, and box jumps.
Speed & Agility
A variety of sports rely on their athletes being quick and agile, both of which can be improved through dryland training. With our coaches, athletes will work on agility drills along with exercises ranging from sprint intervals to weighted lunges.
Flexibility & Stability
Each sport requires a different level of flexibility and stability. These can be significantly improved by developing strength through full range of motion, and dynamic mobility training. Athletes working on this can expect to see an improvement in both movement efficiency and injury prevention.
So many sports rely on their athletes being able to work for a prolonged period of time. The longer an athlete can sustain effort, the more effective they can be. Endurance training is the perfect tool when trying to improve this. We utilize interval training, aerobic threshold pacing, and proper recovery protocols to ensure our athletes are able to work as hard as possible.
