Rate of Play:
Every sport has a unique energy system requirement. Athletes should condition for their sport based on the rate of play. A football play lasts about 5-10 seconds and then there’s typically 30-40 seconds before the next play begins. Football players will perform that work-to-rest ratio anywhere from 3-15 times before the drive ends and they are off the field. Boxing, on the other hand, has anywhere from 3-5 minutes continuous movement with 60 seconds in-between each round. These sports have drastically different needs from their conditioning programs. There could be plenty of overlap, but football’s conditioning program would be lower volume and have a greater focus on speed endurance. The boxing conditioning program would have a greater volume and a greater focus on aerobic capacity.
A good sport-specific training program looks at the common injuries inherent to the activity and prehabs them appropriately, examines the crucial planes of motion in the sport and prioritizes them accordingly, and considers the metabolic needs of the sport and implements conditioning to enhance those abilities.
Track & Field:
While offering world-class track and field training, Coach Larry Wade has established itself as the premier program for preparing athletes to succeed. Our track and field program offers training in the following events: sprints, hurdles, throws, distance, and jumps. We’ve also had athletes compete in the heptathlon and decathlon.
Our science-based training methodology helps athletes enhance their overall performance and reach their potential, and recovery, regeneration and rest continually allow for next level growth and strengthening.
Our athletes are exposed to elite training and conditioning programs employed by world champions and Olympians. Every drill, sprint, exercise and practice is tailored to the student-athlete’s individual needs to maximize efficiency, increase speed and improve strength.
Football strength and conditioning programs are designed to prepare athletes on the field for success. It is extremely important for football players to have a detailed strength and conditioning program. There is a saying: “A good athlete is a healthy athlete.” This couldn’t be more true. Even though you are the best athlete in the world, but you cannot play, you are little to no value to your team.
A solid strength and conditioning program for football will help prevent injuries for the long and grueling season ahead. With our athletes, the objectives of our program vary from athlete to athlete. The overall objective we want to accomplish is stability, strength, speed, and conditioning.
Stability is important to correct muscle imbalances that can lead to injuries sustained during the season. This will allow building a good foundation for heavy lifting and advanced exercises.
Strength is important to allow football players to gain size that allows them to compete safely. Strength training prepares athletes to take on constant contact on the field.
Speed is important to give football players an advantage over their opponent on game day. We focus heavily on developing our athletes’ speed and acceleration to prepare them for success.
Conditioning is the last and final phase in our football strength and conditioning program. This phase will be challenging, yet effective, in getting our guys in the best shape possible right before the season.
Successful boxing requires a combination of speed, power, strength, and endurance. Bulk can also be an advantage, depending on weight classification.
At a very basic level, think of the difference between boxing strength and conditioning training as you would the difference between quality and quantity.
Strength training will help you run faster because it will make your muscles stronger, allowing you to make more rapid and explosive movements to increase your punching power. Conversely, your conditioning determines how long you’ll be able to run before the body gets too tired to make those movements and how long you’ll last during your boxing workout. As you might imagine, training in both manners is of high importance for boxers.
In truth, most people understand the underlying difference between wanting to improve their strength and wanting to improve their conditioning but are often confused or misled as to the best exercises for either. We want to help clear up that confusion.
Weight training, or resistance training, used intelligently, can promote and enhance these athletic characteristics. Because all athletes have individual needs, Coach Larry Wade taylors a program to meet your goals and can modify for specific styles, age, goals, facilities available and so on.
