It’s no secret today that athletes gain a competitive edge through training, improved sleep quality, and the right nutrition will see big improvements within their sport. This is what we do at ascend perform. We identify your strengths and your weaknesses that are holding you back. We help you match the demands of your training with your nutrition, and we always look for what is your optimal training frequency to elicit the appropriate training adaptations without developing staleness and over-training. We’ve been doing this for over two decades and have learned from some of the best strength coaches in the industry.
Developing more speed requires that you train in high velocities. One tool we use is a variable resistance sprint device called the Run Rocket.
Power is the currency in sports. The faster you can produce the power you have the better you will perform.
Strength is the mother of all qualities. We determine where you need to gain strength and then we train it in a cohesive fashion.
Alignment must precede everything. You should never build strength over a dysfunctional movement pattern. This will yield inefficient results or worse, lead to an injury in the future.
Determine what the training objectives are and devise a plan for the short term as well as the long term. This is referred to as periodization.
We use the Train with Push app to collect all necessary data to establish a baseline or point of reference. From this we prescribe all the building blocks to an effective program designed for you, collect the data to show progress, and identify when the details of your program need to be changed.
Once you’ve gotten used to your program and results have slowed down we then make changes. This helps to ensure long-term results and also avoids staleness by providing variety.
All else being equal, the stronger, faster, and more explosive athlete wins. You gain these qualities not in your sport but in your training. We identify what is your limiting factors with these qualities and then we train them to improve them. The results show up when you play your sport.
