We will use:
- Medicine balls
Most movements are round-based, using bodyweight or free weights as resistance. We move the whole body for these movements to work multiple muscle groups together, and our focus is on quality of movement. High-quality movement is always required to move up in weight.
The strength training portion will focus on compound, functional exercises (such as lunges, squats, step-ups, push-ups, dips, chin-ups), and take into account balancing the strength of opposing muscle groups (i.e quadriceps vs. hamstrings).
Power is the combination of strength and speed. A more powerful player is a more formidable player. To improve speed and explosiveness we will include power movements such as jump squats, power cleans, and push presses, as well as plyometric drills.
Finally, a significant component of athleticism is speed. While endurance and strength are important to improving your performance, faster players have a definite competitive edge. This program will also focus on improving speed.
