“The best way to get better at your sport is to practice your sport more!”
Injured? Doesn’t matter, you’re an athlete, you’ll adapt.
Plateau? Keep going, it’ll get better eventually!
Do you know why you’re finding it hard to convince your Strength Coach why you have to keep hammering it home? Because he doesn’t really understand your sport. Your Sport is different!!!
OK now that we have the sarcasm out of the way, let’s get to the bottom as to why some athletes shun the Strength & Conditioning Coach.
Swimmer? Marathoner? Cyclist? Right Winger? Ben Johnson is that you? I think not!!!
The goal of a qualified S & C Coach is to make you a more efficient, powerful, confident and most important, more resilient athlete in your sport of choice; not a world class bodybuilder!!
Hockey – reduce groin pulls with proper core stability; increase speed through lower body strength and power development; save compromised shoulders by improving upper back strength(thoracic mobility/stability/strength).
Endurance athletes(marathoners/triathletes) – improve pillar strength(Abs, buttocks and lower back) so as to endure long distances with repetitive movements, improve “Glute” function to ensure proper running stride or cycling cadence.
Cyclists – pillar strength, improve hip mobility and efficiency of lower body power production, upper back stability.
Golfers – improve the efficiency of the power transfer from the lower body, through the core, into the thoracic spine, out the arms, whipping the club, and pummelling the ball.
And the list goes on and on…
The S & C Coach will identify and help fix or limit your imbalances, improve your flexibility and mobility, strengthen your weaknesses, take you past your plateau, and get you game/race ready.
An 8 cylinder engine might go fast with only 6 cylinders working, but you’ll only know true speed when all 8 cylinders are firing!
BE AS EFFICIENT AS POSSIBLE…BE A BETTER ATHLETE!!!
