We have had an array of talented older population throughout the years that have sought our help in speed training. We have had adults that went on to compete at master competitions and others that wanted help to keep up with their grandchildren. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.
peakendurancesport.com As John Shepherd explains, the bad news is that speed declines with age; the good news is that you can arrest, even reverse, this degenerative process Of all the physiological variables, speed seems to get written off most quickly as we age. Football pundits make jokes about outfield players being ....
When Training for speed, recovery is as important as the drill it self. To fully gain speed performance, you must train at full potential speed. Not possible when the athlete can't catch their breath in-between sets. Train smart for better results. It is not as simple as going out to the field and doing a few sprints and hoping it will make you faster.

Jackie has been at PTI for 4 years going on 5. She came in when she was just 9 looking to supplement her figure skating with speed/agility and injury preventive training. She approaches every workout with a huge smile 😊 and a great attitude. Judging by her form and technique you wouldn’t believe how old she is. At such an young age to be able to handle constructive feedback is fantastic and well beyond kids her age. We are lucky to have a great kid with an excellent driven attitude at our facility.

Here are a few of my favorite core exercises to do before stuffing my face.
V-UPS: Focus on keeping a flat back while reaching for your toes. Keeping your upper body and lower body in synch. Perform: 25 Reps for 1 set.
In and outs: Extend your body as far as possible while keeping your shoulder blades off the ground. Perform: 25 Reps for 1 set.
Scissors: focus on keeping your low back pressed against the ground, keeping tummy tight and rib cage down. Now with straight legs move in scissor motion. Perform 30 total for 1 set.

Ankle sprains are the most common injury in sports and physical activity. It is estimated that about 25% of all injuries across sports are ankle related. There is strong evidence that supports the reoccurrence re-spraining your ankle within the first year. There is also a strong amount of evidence that supports the correlation of poor balance to ankle sprains.
Here are a few exercises I like to perform from time to time to reassure my ankle strength and stability remains strong for my on field performance ⚽️
Sprint, Run, walk, jump or squat. Your hips are doing majority of the work. The hips are the body’s center of gravity and the foundation for the spine and upper body. Therefore, where the hips go, the rest of the body will follow.Yet, many people lose the ability to perform these movements, caused by modern living, like sitting at a desk all day, which is why Hip and Glute Activation Exercises are essential in an effective ‘Prehab program’
As many of our clients/athletes have repeatedly heard us say, our job is too create a foundation that balances our body well from Font to Back, Right to Left. By creating a well balanced body we can greatly reduce the chances of injury.
The mobility and strength of your hip joints is often a major player in the cause of back pain. So if you are either an athlete looking to gain that extra advantage on the field or the 9-5 desk jockey with low back pain that’s looking for relief, doing a few of these simple mobility drills will get the job done.
