Athletic Development

Speed

  1. Speed is one of the most important issues in sport, from the straight ahead running of an elite 100-m to the arm motion of a great fastball pitcher.
  2. PowerRev aims to develop speed using simple relationships between mass and force.
  3. Based in training science, our methods aim to improve sport-specific speed including foot speed as well as other sport movements.
  4. Agility is another measure of speed, and is defined as the ability to change direction.

Strength

  1. Because the nature of sport uses fixed loads, the relationship between strength and speed is a close one.
  2. Strength can be expressed with many differing movements.
  3. Muscle endurance is also closely related and trainable.

Skill

  1. We believe that skill is not mutually exclusive of speed and strength, and that speed and strength training improve skill acquisition and performance.
  2. While the term “functional training” has become popular using exercises that directly mimic sport skills, research has shown that changing the loads or speeds during skilled movements can actually result in decreased performance.

Nutrition

  1. Nutrition is a key component to the development of athletic performance.
  2. Proper nutrient intake can be relatively simple, but the media and profit-minded organizations can confound the issues.
  3. We believe that nutrition professionals (RD) with a background in sports are essential to the training team.
  4. Supplements can be part of a smart nutrition program as long as health and ethics are not compromised.

Flexibility/Mobility

  1. While greater flexibility is not always optimal, one must possess the requisite range-of-motion to achieve optimal performance and minimize injury.
  2. Flexibility is integral to the expression of stregth and skill.
  3. Flexibility training must be integrated into the cool-down period for all training sessions.
  4. Remidial stretching may be required for those with specific limitations.

Drugs

  1. Drugs may have harmful side effects, especially to the young athlete.
  2. Even if not detrimental to health, drug use is cheating, period.
