Sports Performance

S&C purpose statement
The main focus to our strength and conditioning approach is injury prevention, followed by strength and power. A typical in-season workout is targeted towards maintaining the muscle mass gained in the previous off-season. The off-season is when we turn things up a bit, as the volume and intensity are increased; which is where most of the progress is made.

NFL superstar Tom Brady states simply, “Coach Shaw is the best in the business.”

What is his secret? It’s simple. Improve your explosive power and jumping ability and you will run faster. According to Coach Shaw, “If you can increase those two numbers, you will run faster. No matter what kind of form you have, you will run faster.”

Coach Shaw Programs

Coach Shaw believes plyometrics are the only way to drop your 40 in a major way. Plyometrics will increase your standing vertical jump, your standing broad jump and as a result, cut tenths off your 40 time. Sure, you can improve your running form and that will have an impact, but at the end of the day, if you aren’t explosive you won’t be fast. Below is a list of plyometric exercises that Coach Shaw suggests you incorporate into your training program to drop your 40 time.

Performing each drill once or twice a week will improve your explosive power tremendously. Remember: Do not over-train by doing these drills more than twice per week as part of your program.
