We thank you and are looking forward to reaching our supporters more frequently.
THERE IS ALWAYS A METHOD TO THE MADNESS
Random acts of fitness are great for staying in shape but here at FOCUS we create an achievable goal for every athlete... and that is to get more explosive, faster, and stronger to beat our opposition.
We want our Athletes at their best when it’s time to perform, and when it matters most, when the lights are on! In order to do that, at each sessions we provide structure and a specialized theme for each day.
THERE IS A SCIENCE BEHIND OUR SPORTS PERFORMANCE
This form of training definitely gives you the “bang for your buck”not to mention it’s one of our favorite methods for all ages and skill level especially for youth athletes!
Eccentric loads emphasis the decent where muscle lengthin occurs. This phase increases strength, power, and hypertrophy, as well as improves dexterity, jumping, and sprinting performance. Eccentric Isometric exercises generate more force, while expending less energy. Which in turn makes the environment safer because the movements are more deliberate and controlled.
Due to the nature of eccentric tempos, the athlete can hone in their technical aspects and build a strong foundation for proper lifting.
Adding in the isometric (stationary pauses) will increase time under tension which also aids in muscle growth while training your muscle to recruit more explosive type II muscles.
When performed correctly Eccentric iso’s creates
Increased proprioception (knowing how your body feels in open space)
An amazing impact on overall muscle stimulation,
Explosive muscle recruitment cues for proper form less stress on the joints for a safer less taxing session!
Allows coaches to cue the athletes to ensure we are firing off properly to allow for optimal gains and reduce joint stress.
How Are They Performed?
These exercise require a simple 3-Step process.
We will take any squat variation
1. Start with a 3-5 seconds tempo decent
2. Then a 2-5 seconds pause at 90 degrees (slightly below at the bottom of the squat)
3. with the Ascension being explosive but controlled.
The best way to is to go fast as often as possible. Speed is a skill work on it as often as possible.
With that being said, Fast feet transfers to faster speed faster cuts.
There are many components to speed but it’s always great to have faster feet and minimum ground contact ( we will discuss later in more depth)!
Double Leg Forward And Backward Line Hops
Stand with both feet behind a line/piece of tape on a soft surface or gym floor.
Explosively and quickly jump backwards and forward over the line while being light, quick and effortless on your feet. (Visualize stepping on hot rocks).
Repeat pattern for desired amount of time.
