BE THE BEAST TRAINING
BTB Explosive Training
BTB Explosive training is designed for athletes who need to generate a quick burst of maximal effort, such as movements required in football, track and field sports, court sports, cycling etc. Explosive training is used to build quick, explosive power movements that require a maximum or near maximum power output from an athlete in a short amount of time. Explosive training is used to recruit fast twitch muscle fibers to enhance athletic performance.
The goal of explosive exercise training is to ultimately move weights very quickly and to get from point A to point B as fast as possible.
BTB understands the importance of physical and mental training and the importance it has on the daily process of getting better and honing your craft. BTB will help athletes develop perseverance and mental toughness. Without mental toughness, one is always vulnerable for a breakdown no matter how strong and powerful you are. BTB focuses on both the physical motor of the body and force that drives it.
BTB Flexibility Training
BTB Flexibility training focuses on an athletes flexibility to reduce injury and increase an athlete's ability to perform at an optimal performance level. Flexibility is defined as the range of motion of a given joint or group of joints or the level of tissue extensibility that a muscle group possesses. Increased flexibility will lead to increased range of motion through each joint and group of muscles within your body.
BTB Flexibility training use active isolated stretching (AIS). AIS will move your joints and muscles through a complete range of motion, holding the endpoint only briefly, then return to the starting point and then repeating. AIS is used by athletes to prevent injuries or muscle imbalances.
An optimal level of flexibility is absolutely critical for anyone involved in sports; otherwise athletes will experience some stage of breakdown in the bodies tissue that can lead to an injury.
