GET STRONGER | VSP FORMULA
Sports are all about power. Power is the explosiveness when you’re hitting, throwing, sprinting, jumping and making contact with opponents. Power protects your joints and aids in preventing injury.
At VSP, we help you develop that sport-specific power, teaching you the proper technique to lift weight effectively. Using advanced technology, we test and provide feedback on your explosiveness.
Created by our elite coaches, our training programs are custom designed for your stage of athletic development.
WHAT IS STRENGTH?
For athletes, strength is much more than just the amount of weight you can lift on the barbell. It’s about speed of multi-joint movements, coordination, timing and stability.
Strength is the force generated by our muscles and the way in which we apply it. Force is applied in all three dimensions, across multiple muscles and joints.
Whether we apply this force to bodyweight, dumbbells or kettlebells, medicine balls or heavy barbells, the physics are the same.

TYPES OF STRENGTH
Because sports are grounded in speed and accuracy, so too is our approach to strength. Biomechanical analysis of the type and speed of the muscle contractions during sports movements, helps us target the right type of strength for the athlete.
The biomechanics of the sport and position, along with individual genetics and development guides what type of strength an athlete needs.
To make sure your strength transfers to sport and injury prevention, we start with basic development and then move into specific types of strength.
The VSP strength program changes depending on the stage and level of the athlete.
The training process progresses from general bodyweight movements and simple implements to advanced plyometrics, barbell lifts and sport-specific needs.
Programs always develop both strength and power for the athlete. As athletes develop proficiency and progress in level they add specific exercises based on their individual profiles, injury prevention needs and strength specific to their sport.
We use cutting edge technology —that we employ at the international levels— to monitor technique and strength development.
As the athletes move up to competitive and elite levels, this feedback becomes more technical and in-depth including tracking
