Why Strength and Conditioning Boards for injury prevention?

Start with the feet. The functional value of the feet directly depends on the functional state of the tissues. Supporting the longitudinal arch of the feet, and so we are mainly concerned with the biomechanics of the feet, the planter fascia and muscles. We do not train these tissues in the correct way and as a result the tissues get over loaded, become tired and the foot drops.

You feel like you are glued to the ground during sporting activity or exercise. The functional insignificance of the feet often leads to the compensatory overload of another part. Located higher in the limb in this case the additional load will be taken by the strong muscles. as a result of overloading of the stronger muscles the falling chronic injury will arise of Achilles tendon, shin soreness, stress fractures, knee, hip and lower back injury. In order for this to be prevented a good strength programme with the Strength and Conditioning Boards for the feet is necessary.

The programme is structured to achieve a fatigue and recovery effect.

One of the negative aspects of today’s sport and exercise is that of sports injuries.

On the one hand sports medicine has achieved great success in the context of surgery.

Less success is visible however, in the field of injury Prevention.

With the increase in training loads and looking for improvements in results and sporting performance, the factors causing injury has also changed, and so too has the nature of many injuries.

For example injuries twenty years ago, the most common injury were caused by accidents, and now the main reason is for injuries is the over loading of the locomotive system of the body.

The most common chronic injury to the sports persons locomotive system is tendonitis, bursitis, ankle pain, knee pain, hip and lower back pain and overuse injuries.

The reason for these injuries is training over load. This means, the stronger muscles become stronger, and the less exercised parts in the kinetic chain remain weak?

The theory of biomechanics proves that the connection of the load is borne by the weakest parts and as a result the tissues of these parts will be injured, e.g. ankle, knee, hip & lower back.


Strength and Conditioning Boards

With using the boards, exercise that is scientifically proven, is the foundation upon which sports specific skills are built. The training programme for performance enhancement, and injury prevention, is not just a strength or plyo-metric programme. The jumping drills are used to teach sports people to use their entire body safely accelerating or decelerating in sport.

The use and progression of these exercises are designed for neuromuscular retraining proceeding from simple jumping (skills, drills). To instil correct forms, to multi-directional, double and single foot hops, and plyo-metrics with emphasis on quick turnover (to add sports like movements). Also performing manoeuvres with sound mechanics decreases the likelihood of injuries and is essential to maximizing sport performance.

  • Biological efficiency is about symmetry in motion, body, balance and joint alignment in motion.
  • Corrective protocols, for balance and joint alignment.
  • Energy system efficiency.

Using the strength and conditioning boards in a combination of high intensity interval training. Tones where zones are defined by a heart rate equal to an athlete performing high intensity activity for 15-25 seconds.

Training where frequency is defined as action trough tempo. Once an athlete is shown how to use these methods the athlete will be able to perform sporting movement and safely cut down on injury, increase speed and joint motion.

Neurological Efficiency:

To perform at your best, starts with the brain. When your brain is properly regulated producing appropriate brainwave patterns then your mind body operate to its optimum.

So, Why Strength and Conditioning Boards?

  1. Become a faster athlete
  2. Become stronger
  3. Have less injuries: eg
  • ·Achilles injury
  • ·Runners Knee
  • ·Knee / Cruciate Injury
  • ·Hamstring injury
  • ·Back injury
  • ·Ankle / foot injury
  • ·Upper body functionality

High Performance in Sport, is not just for elite Sports People

Learn by doing. This hands-on sports performance workshop will help with, programme design, exercise technique and much more.

What is high performance?

  1. It’s about change
  2. Consistency
  3. Taking risks
  4. Never being complacent
  5. Having Passion
  6. Alignment = organisations, management, coaches, athletes and how they all work together
  7. Science – living excellence

Athletes need to practice in order to perform well. Training efficiently for your sport and varying your workouts and skill drills can help you avoid burnout and boredom, as well as reach new levels of performance.

Programme in Sports Performance:

  • Breathing = Understanding
  • Posture = What is correct
  • Flexibility = Beyond stretching
  • Team programme
  • Children in sport / Woman in sport / Group programme

There are many factors that determine an athlete’s sports performance. After you mastered the basic training concepts, having some additional knowledge and understanding can help you reach the next level of sports performance.

What will you learn?

  • Building a foundation of strength and stability from which you can excel in sport
  • Utilize evidence based techniques to build a base for injury prevention
  • Recognise how closed chain biomechanics and neuro muscular control improves performance
  • List the components of a sports enhancement programme
  • Design a sports enhancement programme to maximize strength and increases performance

You will also learn about specific performance training for team sports and individual sports. Including effective warm ups, flexibility, mobility training, strength, speed and power during the season and Pre season etc

Learn about specific sports nutrition. The right nutrition can help you excel in sports, recover faster, decrease your risk of injury, and even reduce muscle soreness. Proper sports nutrition can also help you avoid dehydration, hitting the wall, general exercise fatigue, and more. Fuel your body right to get the most out of your efforts.

If you would like to improve your running times, and performance between ten seconds to thirty seconds per mile…

The excellence of movement in Sports Performance Is For You.

How to Reduce Injuries eg: overuse injuries, ankle, knee, hip injury – lower back, shoulder and joint dysfunction.
