Sports Performance Programme
Sports specific training programs are designed for professional or recreational athletes as they require specific training methodologies to match the demands of their respective sports.
These programs are designed to improve the athlete specific function required for the specific sport and are not suited for general trainees.
As an example, whilst a rugby player might need to increase his body overall muscle mass and strength in a functional way to increase speed, maximal strength and power , a swimmer might need just the opposite: power-endurance in his torso with LESS total body weight to increase hydrodynamics.
What about a kick boxer attached to a weight class?
As you can see the three examples should have very different training programmes to prepare them for their respective disciplines.This is what it’s called sports specific strength and conditioning.
On the other hand what about the people who just want to get fit, or are new to weight training or just tired and frustrated of training for a long time without any noticeable results? Obviously the general population will not train as an athlete as their training goals are different.
General training programmes are designed to meet this need.
