Participation in competitive sports among both youth and adults is on the rise. According to the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, an estimated 60 million youth between the ages of 6 and 18 participate in some form of organized athletics. Participation in amateur endurance events among adults is up as well, especially among women, who now represent more than half of the field in competitions.
Training programs used to be centered just on the concept of bigger, stronger, and faster. While this is still the overall goal, there is a need to have a structured program that leads an athlete to this type of training at incremental levels.
Addressing stabilization and core strength along with alignment and technique will ensure that an athlete progresses effectively and efficiently throughout the advanced phases of training.
The off-season is when an athlete needs to dedicate their time and energy into a proper training program to ensure performance enhancement for the next season. Practicing their sport is vital, but there will be plenty of time for this when heading into pre-season training. During the off-season, an athlete needs to step away from the sport and focus on their growth potential - increasing their speed, strength, and power that will ensure better performance when they step back on the field, court or ice.
