Athletic Performance Training Series
The seven-level IPS Athletic Performance Enhancement Series provides coaches with a combination of in-depth instruction with hands on practical experience in how to optimally train athletes. The series teaches coaches how to improve the speed, agility, mobility, power, endurance and strength of their athletes. Each level trains coaches to master 4 to 6 exercises for each training component (speed, agility, dynamic movement, core, plyometric , strength, power and endurance).
Speed – Training covers sprint mechanics, acceleration, resistance, and over speed training.
Agility – Instructs athletes how to stop / start, accelerate / decelerate, change direction and control their bodies.
Dynamic Movement – Teaches a series of drills that help to warm-up and increase the mobility of athletes while reinforcing speed and multi-directional movement techniques.
Core – Provides a series of progressive exercises to increase core strength (hips and trunk) of athletes, allowing athletes to be more efficient and be able to transfer strength and power throughout the body (from lower to upper body and from upper to lower body).
Plyometric – Plyometric or jump training increases neuromuscular efficiency and trains athletes how to generate power and explosiveness.
Strength – Teaches coaches how to build upper body, lower body, and rotational strength.
Power – Equips coaches with the means to explosively utilize the athlete’s strength with emphasis of teaching how to tap into the power generation capabilities of the hips through triple extension (extension of the ankles, knees and hips).
Endurance – Provides coaches with how to use heart rate training to develop the aerobic capacity of their athletes and match training to the energy system utilized in their sport.
