Elite Athlete Training

Elite Athlete Prescription Plans

Our elite athlete training programs are composed by scientific knowledge for the primary goal of improving athletic performance.

Pretesting sessions are the essential when prescribing exercise plans to implement safe and effective strength training and conditioning programs.

The time period will vary among several physiological factors such as the need for rehabilitation, myofacial release in kinetic chain, level of conditioning and skill.

To promote long-term training and performance improvements, your professional coach should include preplanned, systematic variations in training specificity, intensity, and volume organized in periods or cycles within an overall program. This is known as periodization.

CSCS (Elite Exercise) Programs VS Coaching Programs

Elite exercise prescriptions are based around several phases of sports performance. Meaning each program is written with the intention to build on the next.

Personal programs are made to move your body towards an achieved goal they are written by coaches with a short term time focus.

Elite athlete exercise prescription plans are based on specific cyclical time periods.

CSCS Programs

  • Uses Sport Specific (Contortion) Drills to get you deeper in your poses.

  • Physical Testing.
  • Several follow up physical assessments.
  • Non sport specific activities to increase performance.
  • Uses time periodization in phases for building endurance, strength and peak performance.

Coaching Programs

  • Sport Specific Personalized Program
  • Uses Sport Specific (Contortion) Drills to get you deeper in your poses.
  • Muscle Conditioning.
  • Physical Assessment.
  • Physical Testing.

CSCS Elite Athlete programs rotate through different phases in preparation geared towards a specific event such as football season, olympics or performances. Each of these phases build very differently to a traditional program with completely different prescription plans.

In essence your exercise prescription would have 5-6 plans with pretesting in between phases to address The entire periodization cycle. While your individual program would come with one training plan.

Periodization In Exercise Prescription

Novice Athlete Periodization

Periodization can be a cycle of a year (training professional football players for game season), or as short as 4 weeks. The length will be dependent on your performance goals. Periodization preperation includes the:

Preparatory Period

Hypertrophy/Endurance Phase

Basic Strength Phase

Competition Period

Second Transition Period (Active Rest)

(Professional Athlete Periodization Prescription.)

(We are going to get into the above terms a little later.)

How General Adaptation Syndrome Affects Exercise Prescription

General adaption syndrome is a three-stage physiological response to stress (alarm, resistance, and exhaustion).

When we are training the body is able to demonstrate its ability to withstand stress. 

The athlete relies on neurological adaptations to continue training while the muscle tissue adapts by making various biochemical, structural, and mechanical adjustments that lead to increased performance.

This phase of adaptation is called super-compensation

If the stress persists for an extended time, the exhaustion phase  is reached. Some of the same symptoms experienced during the alarm phase reappear (fatigue, soreness, etc.), and the athlete loses the ability to adapt to the stressor. (:S It kinda makes you think about all of that repetitive training you are doing.)

Real Life Rest Phase Results

I was forced to take a rest phase of three months from my training and I think it nearly killed me. I have a spinal disability (genetic not from training) that desired to rear its ugly head.

Before the onset I was able to get my chest to the floor with my hands flat on the seat of the chair. That also included a little mini cheat of mine because my crash mat was 1.5 inches thick, and it was more my chest tissue hitting the floor not the actual chest (if you know what I mean.)

Three months later I was finally well enough to get back on the mat. My first training session on back and shoulders I could not only touch the floor with my chest, I also had to add 3 blocks in height on the chair. That was still too easy so a block was needed under the knee as well.

Needless to say I was pretty over the moon about it.
