Many athletes completely avoid strength training.
They instead spend their time on drills to improve flexibility, agility, speed and even balance.
Yet simple and focused strength training can actually help improve their skills, speed, and agility and so on.
Strength training is also a superb way to reduce your risk of injury.
What is Strength Training?
Strength training is most often perceived as weight lifting.
However, that’s not all there is to it.
Resistance training and isometrics are also types of strength training.
Strength training is essentially the process of building the strength, anaerobic endurance and size of your skeletal muscles.
When you strength train however, you don’t have to focus on bulk and in fact you may not want to.
Bulk or size does not equal strength.
The Benefits of Strength Training
Strength training can help athletes of all abilities, ages and sports improve.
Strength training for your sport can:
Increase your speed
Improve your agility
Improve your flexibility
Reduce your risk of injury
Increase your bone density
Increase your range of motion
Improve your confidence on the court or field
Improve your balance
Improve your explosive power
Improve your endurance
Sounds good, right?
Most athletes can benefit by improving at least half of the items on that list of ten.
The problem is that a strength training program alone may not provide the full range of benefits.
Strength training is most effective when it is part of a sports enhancement training program.
What is a Sports Enhancement Training Program?
