OUR PROGRAM METHODOLOGY
Athletes demand a higher level of training and at Poulin Performance we have customizable programs to meet those demands. Our sports performance programs begin with a thorough functional evaluation. We are not only interested in how much you can move, but HOW you move it. We look at specific movement patterns and qualify how well those movements are being performed. It is important to understand the body’s limitations and how to correct them in order to develop your individual program. We utilize a multi-faceted approach to improving performance of every athlete who trains with us. Our programs will make you feel great, run faster, cut quicker, have better endurance and be more powerful while significantly decreasing your risk of injury. Our proven methodology has helped numerous amateur and professional athletes, let us help you.
Sample In-season Basketball Workout
At Poulin Performance we have created a variety of training options that will allow the individual the ability to train individually or in one of our exclusive group sessions. Please see our IFit programs for the current group offerings.
In order for athletes to improve they must first understand how they compensate. Our athletes are evaluated on a daily basis to identify movement dysfunctions that will lead to decreased performance and increased risk of injury. This first stage of training called corrective exercise training is imperative if strength and performance are expected. We use postural restoration techniques which are most effective in changing dynamic posture.
Building the complete athlete is a process that begins with building a solid core. Not only does the core need to be solid, it also needs to be symmetrical. Before we attempt to improve an athletes strength or power we stabilize any lumbo-pelvic-femoral imbalances.
Reactive neuromuscular training involves making athletes function at a level that's faster than they think is possible. We guide athletes through plyometric exercises that involve visual and verbal stimuli maximizing their quickness and ability to adapt. Once stable our athletes move into our plyometric phase of training. We use things like agility ladders, medicine balls, plyometric hurdles and the Vertimax to develp such power.
Teaching proper strategies such as running technique, deceleration, acceleration, cutting and jumping enable us to help our athletes reach their full potential. By addressing small compensations in technique our athletes see big improvemnts in top speed, 40 yd dash, t-test and vertical jump. Our knowledge of efficient movement coupled with our use of the Force Treadmill guarantees results.
When performed properly strength training can be an incredible tool to become a better athlete. Done with the right load, speed and technique, strength is a weapon every athlete can use in their arsenal. Our goal is to create movement proficiency under appropriate load to assist each athlete in becoming stronger for their sport.How Do I Get Started?
