Sports Performance Training:
Our Performance Coaches work with the athletes by implementing specific exercises and variables with the end result being an improvement in your chosen sport. Every sport challenges and athletes physical capacity in different ways, so, in return, a good sports performance program will enhance the capabilities of the athletes to perform the skills most necessary to their sports of choice. Our sports performance program will include the following benefits to the athlete: injury prevention; decreased waste effort due to improper movement; myofascial release; increase postural control; balance and stability; increase muscular endurance; increase total strength; elevate maximum power output, and energy system training. The following is a list of the equipment which will be used: stability balls; bands; exercise wheel; weight vest; versa slides; TRX; bungee cords; harnesses; medicine balls; airex pads; and for the advanced, oxygen deprivation mask.
Here at The Richardson Program we focus on the following pillars of nutrition: eating nutrient dense foods; getting the majority of your nutrients from food, not supplements; eating minimally processed foods; eating healthy fats; and increase intake of water and healthy fluids.
Each athlete will have access to the blog section of the website. Within the blog section they will find articles in reference to the following subject matter and more: water intake; our bodies pH; nutrition and how it affects our daily energy; inflammation; Macronutrients (Carbs, Proteins, Fats); Micronutrients (Vitamins & Minerals); Nutrient Timing (Per & Post); and much more.
Sleep, in conjunction with movement and nutrition, plays a crucial role in our performance. Often times it is a lack of sleep that keeps us from reaching our personal and professional goals. Some of our athletes say that they can function on 5 to 6 hours of sleep but what they don't know is that reduced sleep may be what is standing in their way of increasing performance or just being healthier.
As a way to correct and potentially ward off several of the issues associated with the above explosive sports, here at the Richardson Program, during the corrective/recuperation phase, we implement Self Myofascial Release also known as SMR into the athletes program.
Myofascial Fascial compression and Trigger Point Therapy are forms of SMR which has a direct effect on skeletal muscle by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles. (Which has a positive influence on an individuals flexibility and mobility.)
What is Fascia. Fascia is a thin, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body. Fascia supports and protects these structures.
One of the more common tools, used in most Health and Wellness industry, to facilitate Self Myofascial Release is the foam roller. The following is a list of other tool used for SMR: Myofascial Compression Kit; Hypersphere; Lacrosse Balls; and The Stick.
