Repetitive movements in sports leads to deviations in posture; the key is to avoid hitting the tipping point were this becomes a problem. If you have regular stiffness or worse sore knees, lower back pain, shoulder or hip pain, you are out of balance. You are in a state of stress and you best deal with it before it become a serious issue.
Just because you are an athlete, that doesn’t mean you can simply dive into any strength training program and see results. It is fatal to assume that an athlete can perform in a strength training program without any issues. If you think that, you are open to injuries- in the weight room and out. Why? Because most training programs are not taking the time to identify whether or not you- the athlete- is or isn’t ready, or is actually able to perform the program correctly for maximum results.
A quick assessment before you begin a program is a great selling point to get you in the door, but does the program address the outcome of the assessment? Is it an assessment that is looking for the right imbalances, posture deviations, strength ratios? Are there protocols and systems in place to address the imbalances?
Some people will argue that “ the program itself will fix those problems”, which to a degree (a good program) will, but very few programs are actually created to address imbalances; let alone detect them properly.
We attack imbalances, weaknesses, and postural deviations on day one.
Arete Nation athletes have ALL gained from our highly effective assessments. Our athletes begin their program which includes attacking the imbalances, weaknesses, injuries, or postural issues.
Our elite program addresses imbalances rapidly, which is going to improve results rapidly. This is the missing link in most other programs, and one of our defining differences; we ALWAYS address the structural and movement efficiency of the athlete to achieve the goal of greater athletic strength vs. weight room strength.
