Misao, worked out the kinks in my shoulders using the Graston technique.
She really knows what she’s doing as I’ve been to another place which did not have nearly as good a result as I did here at Velocity with Misao. I’m a return client as Misao worked on me a while back a day before I participated in a Crossfit competition in which me and my partner placed second, I’m not sure if We would’ve placed at all if I hadn’t visited Velocity and Misao hadn’t resolved my shoulder issues. Thanks again Velocity and Misao for all you do in assisting Us with Recovery and so much more that you have at your facility to offer 😊🏃🏻‍♂️🏋🏻‍♂️🤸🏻‍♂️
Wishing all of you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!

A good coach doesn’t just tell the athlete what’s good or bad, they help them see it and feel it.

As coaches we strive to teach our athletes so they can get more out of their training.

We also want them to be more and more independent.

Good coaching is teaching.


05/11/2022

Coaching often means meeting your athletes where they are at.

Sometimes that physically like getting down to the level of a young athlete.

More important though is understanding where they are physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Even when we have the loftiest of goals, coaches have to meet the athletes where they are now if they want to lead them onward.

Coaches will help athletes stretch their limits and get uncomfortable, but we can’t ask for impossible.

Small wins add up.

When we help athletes accumulate small wins by getting uncomfortable and putting in the effort they develop resilience and a growth mindset.

That’s what leads to sustained success in sports and life.

Guide To Weight Training Without Pain

We understand how beneficial and enjoyable serious weight training can be. But we also know that too many people end up experiencing pain and injury with repetitive, high-intensity barbell workouts.

As strength & conditioning professionals we know there is a better way.

Ultimate Guide to Speed Training 08/31/2021

Ultimate Guide to Speed Training

Here’s a quick question for sport parents – Are you doing everything you can to help your child reach their athletic 🏃🏽‍♀️ goals?

If you’re like most parents, you probably try to and worry you may not be. So, you need to know how important speed is in sports;

✅ 83% of college coaches ranked speed & agility as their top physical trait in recruiting

✅ Elite athletes accelerate 25% faster than non-elite

✅ Elite athletes produce 50-100% more force into the ground while sprinting

In the coming season, every fraction of a second and every half-step advantage will help decide the future of your athlete.

If this really drives home the importance of speed and agility, the real question is how do we develop a player to their full potential? 12

Fortunately, speed is a skill and can be improved with the right training.  You can close the gap and leave other athletes in the dust.

Velocity Sports Performance was founded in 1999 and has trained over 1 Million athletes around the globe.  This includes Olympians in 11 Games, National Teams, and elite athletes from 17 countries in 34 different sports.

Even more important, the Velocity Speed Formula has been proven to produce consistent results with developing athletes.  

🚀 BIG FORCE into the ground
⏱ Force applied in a SMALL TIME
⇢ Vector in the PROPER DIRECTION
📐 Joints move through an OPTIMAL RANGE OF MOTION

While that seems simple, the biomechanics and motor control that go into it are complex and how we apply it in training is precise.  This formula was developed with sports scientists and elite coaches. It’s based on the biomechanics of speed and has been refined over the last 2 decades.

The key is that Velocity knows how to produce consistent results and you can have peace of mind knowing you are giving your athlete the best chance at success.

Athletic strength is more than just weight on the barbell. Contrast series help build strength and teach athletes to express it explosively.

Instead of just going after the heaviest weight, using Velocity Based Training with gives feedback to treat get the right weights for each athlete.

Combined with loaded and unloaded jumps the athletes build power they can use in their sport.

07/10/2021

Coaching feedback.

Nothing can replace the right feedback from a coach.

It can be incredibly powerful, for good or bad.

Master coaches use both the Art & Science of coaching to deliver;
- the right message
- at the right time
- in the right way

Tech can be an awesome tool to share feedback. From video analysis of technique to measures like power output and bar velocity.

Often the athlete can process these objective types of feedback without having to feel judgement.

Athlete tap into their own motivation and the coach guides them along the way.

Every athlete has an individual Strength Signature.

It’s a measure of how you express power with speed and strength in different types of movements.

It’s also the key to training smarter. Building the right type of strength for sport and your needs.

Don’t waste time and energy on the wrong type of training!

Training smart leads to greater transfer to sports and to lowered injury risk.

Do you know complete Strength Signature?

Change of direction skill is huge for reacting, evading, and chasing. It can also put serious demands on the structures and motor control of the athlete. Big difference between QUICK and ACUTE cuts. To improve performance or rehab, consider the strength qualities needed!

Sprinting is important! But is it enough?

Athletes have many ways to get from one place to another. There's a lot more than just linear sprinting.

These are the 6 basic ways athletes move in ground based sports.

Each of these have variations based on sport and situational context. Are your athletes training the way they move?

VSP Movement Methodology

03/19/2021


・・・
Lots of coaches talking about training deceleration. Biomechanically, decel happens, but is that really the intent?

In change of direction its not about slowing down, its about accelerating in a different direction.

Stop coaching the decel, start coaching the acceleration in a new direction!

03/02/2021


・・・
Lots of talk about frontside versus backside mechanics. Max velocity sprinting is cyclical so frontside affects backside and vice-versa. Coach Loren Seagrave emphasized this decades ago.

So be careful with how you analyze a piece, look at the whole.

When we do think there are excessive backside mechanics here are some of the most basic things we do are try to correct body position & reduce residual phase. Why?

It increases thigh block height which generally provides opportunity for more force into the ground.

Changing one phase of a cyclical action affect the following phases.

Vitamin D has some important benefits for health, injury prevention and performance for athletes.

But now there are some in the medical community who suspect there may be benefits during the pandemic. The research is early, but it's growing.

A WebMD article on May 18th outlined much of it.

"Several groups of researchers from different countries have found that the sickest patients often have the lowest levels of vitamin D, and that countries with higher death rates had larger numbers of people with vitamin D deficiency than countries with lower death rates.

Experts say healthy blood levels of vitamin D may give people with COVID-19 a survival advantage by helping them avoid cytokine storm, when the immune system overreacts and attacks your body's own cells and tissues."

OTHER RESEARCH
Researchers in the U.K. found countries with low average vitamin D blood levels in the population had higher numbers of COVID-19 cases and deaths

Northwestern University researchers estimated the association between vitamin D and severe COVID-19 based on a potential link between vitamin D deficiency and C-reactive proteins, or CRP, a surrogate marker for severe COVID-19

Indonesian researchers found that most patients who died had vitamin D levels below normal in a study of 780 documented cases of COVID-19.

Researchers analyzing European population and vitamin D levels, found countries with high rates of vitamin D deficiency also had higher death rates from COVID-19.

GET VITAMIN D
We always need to remember that correlation is not causation. However, something we might recommend for athletes anyway may have more benefits now.

The best way to have healthy Vitamin D levels is to get adequate exposure to sunlight on your skin.

Foods such as those below are great sources of Vitamin D;
Salmon
Tuna
Egg Yolks
Mushrooms
Fortified Milk, Cereals and Foods

While it's new for most sports coaches, in elite sports we've been working to manage injury risk of players returning to sports for decades.

While usually it's a player returning from a major injury, we now face every athlete having to go through this. Weeks and weeks of detraining have changed them, and the athletes that return to practice wont be the same.

In the graph above we shared an example of what an athlete who has been sustaining 25% of their normal workload would experience.

Some athletes aren't even doing that much.

THE BAD NEWS
We can tell you the ratio we see in this graph after the return to sports after COVID-19 restrictions will make the Acute:Chronic ratio really high. And this is with a 4 week ramp up!

From both research and real life experience, we know this increases injury risk a lot.

THE GOOD NEWS
There are strategies to take to lower this risk. Both athletes and coaches can do things to help.

Athletes doing more than just working out, but training with specific preparation will help.

Coaches can plan specific progressions of volume, speed, and distance. They can also build return to sport plans that balance physical acclimatization and adaptation, with needed skills and tactical development.

GET HELP
We are happy to help either coaches and teams, or individual athletes as they get ready. Contact to learn more.
