Athlete Profiling Workshop
About Athlete Profiling
Performance profiling helps coaches understand their athlete or client strengths and weaknesses from both a physical and physiologic aspect. It also helps coaches to create a base line measurement of the individual they are dealing with. Once profiling has been performed it will provide a clear indication as to the next necessary steps to take in order to achieve the highest level of performance.
Athlete Profiling will encompass:
- Power Testing
- Squat Jump Vs. CMJ
- Strength Profiling
- Energy System Profiling
- Aerobic Vs. Anaerobic Testing
Athletic Movement Screen
Screening individuals provides you with an oversight on movement deficiencies and create a clear picture of any potential movement limitation. The parameters we look to measures are mobility, stability, and core movement patterns. This helps provide coaches with an oversight on how to maximise injury prevention and improve overall performance.
Vertical jump testing measures both strength and power. This system of testing is reproducible on a weekly or monthly base and can be used to not only test the power output of athletes but also to monitor fatigue.
Measures your acceleration capabilities over a set distance. Speed and good acceleration qualities are important aspects of most sports. During our speed testing, we show coaches how to create a full speed profile on their athletes.
Understanding the strength capabilities of your athlete is fundamentally important not only from a programming perspective but also from an injury prevention standpoint. During our strength testing, we show coaches how to properly perform full body strength testing.
Energy System Testing
Creating a profile of your athlete’s energy system or fitness requirement not only allows them to become high performers at their sport but also keeps the athletes healthy and free from injury. During our ESD testing, we show coaches how to segment and test all of the individual’s energy system.
