Exercise prescription is never generalized since each athlete's goals, sport, and personal physiology are unique.
How does it work?
All of our athletes at ASP begin their training experience with a one-on-one consultation with one of our Performance Specialist to determine the specific goals and needs of each athlete to develop a customized training strategy.
As part of this strategy, we utilize the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and the Combine360 athletic assessment tools. The FMS is a 7 movement rating and grading system that identifies functional limitations and asymmetries that can reduce the effectiveness of your strength and conditioning program. With results for the FMS, our coaches can implement a customized corrective exercise strategy to restore optimal movement patterns and enhance performance.
ASP also holds regularly scheduled Combine360 events to measure our athletes in the areas of Athleticism, Movement, and Character to create a benchmark to measure against themselves and other athletes in a fun and motivating high-energy environment. All training should be goal-orientated and results comparable to past performance- a critical element in the drive to perform better everyday.
Combining the athlete consultation, FMS and Combine360 results, our coaching staff develops a specific multi-day a week training protocol for each athlete with regular re-assessments to ensure progress and training success.
What happens next?
All of our 90 minute training sessions at ASP take place in a semi-private training environment with an athlete-to-coach ratio of no more than 4:1 and in most cases, closer to 3:1. We feel this type of training format provides the most motivating, fun and unconditionally positive environment for all our athletes to achieve their goals.
All of our science-based performance programs include the following:
- Dynamic warm-up and Muscle Activation
- Corrective movement (PreHab) involving mobility and stability exercises to address injury prevention and rehabilitation
- Speed, Agility, and Quickness training (SAQ) to include:
- Multi-directional and Linear Speed
- Acceleration/Deceleration Mechanics
- First Step Quickness
- Vertical Jump Training
- Rotational Power
- Power Development through Olympic Lifting, Kettlebell Training and Medicine Balls
- Strength Development utilizing Keiser pneumatic equipment and free weights
- Energy Systems Development (ESD) for metabolic adaptation implementing Woodway high-speed treadmills, Concept Rowers, Schwinn Airdynes, and more
- Recovery and Regeneration strategies using Myofascial Release, Active Release, PNF, and static stretching
- Nutritional Strategies for Optimal Performance
