Powerful Athletes Make More Plays!

Powerful athletes make more plays...have you been watching the NBA playoffs? I have caught a few games and one thing is true over and over: teams with speed and power usually equals winning teams---AT ANY AGE GROUP!

Getting stronger and stronger won't help you much if your power (how fast your muscles can produce force) doesn't improve......power improvement also improves your running speed.....

Here are 2 tips to improve your sports power:

1. Do your exercises in a standing position because most athletic movements are done standing and will also work all the trunk and hip stabilizer muscles and not just the abdominals.

Your core muscles are crucial for power movements like throwing, jumping and hitting. Many players lose power because of weak cores. For example, when throwing, power must transfer from the legs through the core to the arm. When your body is adequately strengthened and stabilized, do exercises full speed to develop maximum power!

2. Your training program needs to include exercises in all 3 planes of motion since sports movements happen in all 3 planes. This would include your sports specific exercises.

Other things being equal, a muscular, powerful athlete will outperform a fat, slower or skinny, weaker athlete. Sports Fitness Hut's Fat Blaster Athletic Power Training System will give you your "lean and mean" athletic machine!
