Track and field is a physically demanding sport with athletic skills of running, jumping, and throwing that require a tremendous amount of speed, strength & power.

Track and field events such as the long jump, high jump and triple jump have relied heavily on plyometric training for their success over the years.

Sprinting is about body mechanics and force generation, which work hand and hand with stride length and frequency.  A sprint is comprised of three phases: start, drive, and stride.  Each phase has its own technical aspect, which when performed correctly can produce maximum results.  Training each phase individually can improve the overall outcome of a sprint.  

Since you utilize mostly slow-twitch fibers in distance running, plyometrics teach your body to also rely upon fast-twitch fibers. When you maximize muscle recruitment, you’re able to turn your legs over faster.

At Athletes Arbor, our sports performance and agility training improve foot speed, quickness, acceleration, flexibility and explosive power to optimize athletic performance and have an edge on the competition.
