Competitive Edge Training will focus on improving the 4 areas that are essential to compete at the top level of volleyball.
The main goal of every volleyball player is to be on the court competing. For this reason, injury prevention will be a main focus of this training. Injuries to the knees, ankles and shoulders are the most common in volleyball players. Knee injuries can be dramatically reduced by not only strengthening the hip, glutes and hamstrings, but teaching the athletes how to activate these muscles so they can protect the knee joint. Ankle injuries can be reduced through stabilization exercises that will counteract the atrophy from wearing ankle braces. The most frequent injury in volleyball involves the shoulder joint. The excessive internal rotation with the lack of external rotation is the primary reason for these types of injuries. Scapular stabilization, internal, and external rotational exercises will be incorporated to provide strength and flexibility to protect the shoulder joint.
VOLLEYBALL SPECIFIC TRAINING
This training will help to improve an athlete’s vertical, foot speed, reaction time, lateral movement, and core strength which are all key skills to being successful in volleyball. This training will provide the proper drills to improve each skill and teach how to make this transition to the court.
Nutrition is often overlooked as a key component to performance. Without the proper nutrition mental focus and performance will suffer tremendously. Most athletes are not taught proper nutrition guidelines. Most importantly they are not taught how to apply these guidelines to their lifestyle. Competitive Edge Training will teach practical ways to apply these nutrition guidelines to everyday life, and most importantly to Tournament Days. Post workout nutrition will be provided after each session.
The stretching techniques are yoga-inspired moves that will increase flexibility in the wrist, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle joints. Flexibility can increase an athlete’s power output. Each stretch incorporates the entire body and helps with balance and body awareness. It is a great way to cool the body down and end a session.
