VSP STRENGTH FORMULA

For athletes, strength is about speed of multi-joint movements, coordination, timing, and stability. Strength is the force generated by our muscles how we apply it. Force is applied in all three dimensions, and across multiple muscles and joints. Regardless of the method we use to apply force, the physics are the same.

TYPES OF 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.

To make sure your strength transfers to sport and injury prevention, we start with basic development and then move into specific types of strength.

LOAD: Eccentric Strength

Force developed “loading” the muscles under a stretch.

DRIVE: Strength-Speed

Big Forces, moved with moderate speed in shorter times.

EXPLODE: Force Development

The rate of speed used to turn the muscles on quickly.

FORCE: Max Strength

The bigger the force, the longer the time to develop.

DRIVE: Speed-Strength

Moderate Forces, High Speed, Short Times.

SPRING: Reactive Strength

Small time, quick muscle stretch, followed by explosive force.

PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENT

In order to become a fluid and fast athlete, you must develop your faculties through guided dynamic motor learning. Our coaches use external cueing techniques paired with feedback in order to create an optimal training environment for athletes.

Appropriate Strength for Every Level

The VSP strength program progresses from general bodyweight movements and simple implements to advanced plyometrics, barbell lifts and sport-specific needs.

As athletes develop proficiency and progress in level they add specific exercises based on:

  • Individual profiles
  • Injury prevention needs
  • Strength specific to their sport

GET STRONGER WITH VSP

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..
  • POWER PREDICTS UP TO 81% OF YOUR JUMP HEIGHT, SPRINTING SPEED, AND CHANGE OF DIRECTION.
  • 33 – 50% OF INJURIES ARE REDUCED THROUGH STRENGTH TRAINING.

TRAINING SUCCESS

"Working with the sports medicine team at Velocity, was definitely one of the best things I have done in my recovery process. I don't think I would have been ready to go play college sports if it wasn't for the amazing Sports Medicine team here at Velocity."
