Sport Performance Training

I hear every single athlete say they need to be stronger, faster, quicker, explosive, or durable. It all comes down to the work you put into it. Training for your sport shouldn’t just consist of you playing your sport, you need to improve the parts that need separate attention. That is where sports performance training comes in. very rarely a great athlete isn’t participating on some sort of off the field training, it just doesn’t happen. Most athletes need to take the time to get faster, stronger, and quicker.

Sport Performance

This is a field in which practitioners look at the greater picture of the sport year and work with athletes – either individuals or teams – to maximize their level of performance in their event through strength and conditioning, biomechanical corrections, and increasing flexibility and mobility.

Coach Rok Agile Performance Enhancement Training™ (A.P.E.T) is a very highly renowned program that will bring any athlete to the next level in their sport. Sports performance training is not meant to practice a particular skill at a sport, rather it enhances your mental skills and athletic ability with sport specific speed, agility, and strength training.

When you first start with our Agile Performance Enhancement Training, we will measure your stats in speed, strength and agility. As you train and progress, this gives you a great reference on how much faster and stronger you have become working with us.

Long-term Athlete Development

Our athlete performance program is invested in the long-term success of athletes and takes into account the full sport year: the pre-season, competition season, post-season, and off-season. Through our performance program athletes will be systematically progressed through various “blocks” of training that correlate to the season in the sport year – these blocks comprise goal adaptations for the athlete’s body to the exercise prescription. The ultimate goal of training is to bring the athlete’s body as close to their genetic potential as possible–how fast you can accelerate, how high you can jump, how hard you can hit. Naturally the goal is to do all of these with the best performance and the best form possible.

An often-scene scenario nowadays is defining a “successful” workout by the amount of sweat lost, how much “burn” was felt, and how tired one feels upon completion. Though this does indeed feel like a good workout, it is, however, not always appropriate for an athlete looking to maximize their potential in their sport.

Benefits of an Appropriate Strength and Conditioning Plan

  • Decreased incidence on non-contact injury via changes in form and greater tolerance of sport demands
  • Increased flexibility and mobility
  • Longer time to reach a fatigued state
  • Increased strength and power
  • Training program is based upon the athlete’s specific sport with consideration of timing, exercise selection, and training for specific (pre-selected by the coach and/or athlete) competitions throughout the training program
  • Appropriately timed exercise selection, volume, frequency, and work-rest ratios

Frequently Asked Questions

What is sport specificity?

Sport specificity is understanding the demands of a sport – both mechanical and energy systems – and identifying exercises and training volumes that most closely resemble the sport and manipulating these factors throughout the sport seasons

How does strength training increase flexibility and mobility?

Strength training for athletes requires a combination of muscle contractions. The beginning movement of an exercise utilizes a type of muscle contraction where the muscle is producing a force as it is lengthening (such as lowering the bar to the chest in the bench press). Following this is a momentary static contraction as the muscle fibers begin a shortening-contraction (pushing the bar away from the chest in the bench press). By approaching the end-range of motion via the lengthening-contraction the muscle and tendon fibers over time are able to withstand greater ranges of motion, thus increasing flexibility and mobility.

What is the difference between flexibility and mobility?

Flexibility is the ability of a joint to go through a range of motion while mobility is the ability to produce force through a range of motion

Why train the athlete for only some peak competitions versus all competitions?

Training for “peak” competitions is more appropriate compared to all competitions as often the competition season lasts 2-3 months or longer; maintaining a level of peak condition for a full competition season is extraordinarily challenging and can result in decreased performance as the season progresses due to physical and mental fatigue.

Over the course of a year, Rok’s training resulted in a reduction of body composition from 17.2% to 12.7%, and no more back pain when cycling. Thanks Rok!”

I am playing college rugby here in Santa Clara, back to training MMA, and I owe all of my continued progress, motivation, and perseverance to the dedication you put into me as my trainer, teaching me how to eat right, lift right, and live my life to be healthier and stronger in all aspects. I want to thank you for transforming my life.”
