JUMP FORCE FOR SPORTS PERFORMANCE

Jumping during competition, whether vertical or horizontal jumps, are important for a successful outcome in sport performance. In some sports, the ability to jump higher or farther than another competitor will determine who wins the competition.

MOBILITY FOR SPORTS PERFORMANCE

If the basis is not good, you cannot perform many exercises properly and this causes the body to go compensate. This compensation causes complaints in the longer term and even considerable ones. The basis of functional movement consists of mobility of joints, flexibility of muscles and physical stability. Perform every exercise with good technique with attention and concentration for intensity.

SPEED FOR SPORTS PERFORMANCE

Having speed is very important to athletes who are competing in sprinting sports and field sports such as soccer. Actions like the recovery from a stolen ball, breaking to a header, outrunning a defender to the ball and breaking to an open space it all depends on the speed of the athlete. When improving your speed, athletes can distinguish themselves from other competitors.

STABILITY

Develop overall body control, by improving core muscles for static and dynamic balance.

STABILITY FOR SPORTS PERFORMANCE

The corset of muscles in your torso is the basis from which almost all movements take place and you therefore benefit from a good core with practically everything you do. A solid core certainly also contributes to sports performance. In sports, it is important to ensure power transfer from the trunk and pelvis to the arms and legs. This requires a good balance and control. Many athletes undertake stability training as part of their training programme.

STRENGTH

Practice resistance training with isometric, concentric and eccentric movements to improve muscle strength.

STRENGTH FOR SPORTS PERFORMANCE

Training to develop strength is important for maximizing performance in especially contact sports and track and field. Strength training gives the athlete a foundation to improve explosive power and reduces the likelihood of injury in many athletic tasks.
