The Functional Trainer represents the core machine within the Infinity Series. As the name implies, it is a multi-functional machine for a complete body workout. It can be used for hundreds of different exercises, ranging from rehabilitation to sports-specific applications and is one of the most basic and versatile cable machines available. The ability to train at any speed and without any impact makes it the product of choice for many different applications. With its space-saving design, the unit is available with or without a base. (Units without base must be bolted directly and securely to the floor.)   

The Functional Trainer features two adjustable arms, which can be adjusted for virtually any training position. Each pulley swings independently of the machine to match the line of pull. In addition to its already space-saving design, the unit can either stand alone or be floor-mounted.

RPR uses a combination of proper breathing techniques and acupressure to restore proper movement patterns by addressing harmful muscular imbalances that can cause compensation patterns, decrease performance and cause injury.

 

Velocity's coaches are certified in RPR and work closely with the RPR creators to host clinics at Velocity.

Training for the In-Season Team Training

Since teams are assembled and we are attached to Braemar Arena, the convenience factor alone makes it a good fit.  Dryland training is important and I wanted to share some info how I can help. There are numerous reasons why in season training for hockey is important but there are a few that need to be touched on that might turn up the volume to your interest. 

 

First, we need to clarify the dry-land label.  An industry standard definition of dry land “Hockey” training many times is busy work after practice in hopes to get stronger, faster and more powerful.  In the case of in season training it's how the work is implemented not necessarily what is being done.  With the proper rest and attention to quality reps of specific movements, there will be a desired training effect.

 

We all know that once practices have started, the athlete will be sore as the body is adapting to the desired fitness and conditioning necessary to perform the task.  Once the body is adapted, the body is no longer sore and can tolerate the demands of practice.  Once the games are added, (the addition of adrenaline to performance) there is another period of “soreness” that the body again must adapt too.  Once the athlete has played a few games, again the body has adapted and is no longer sore (obviously this is depending on the contact, and game demands).  The body eventually will accumulate the stressors and has adapted.  Soon the wear and tear of the long season stressor will eventually hinder the performance of the athlete and team.  This is where in season training becomes such a valuable tool.

 

When you are in season, you cannot do extra conditioning on Wednesday so you’re in better shape Friday.  The body does not work that way in season.  What you can do is along with the introduction of practice, you can add to it in season “Dryland” training.  This is just another stress to the body that you will be sore from and then adapt too.  As the season progresses, and the team becomes sluggish and worn down, you don’t want to eliminate or shorten practice (just yet), so you can systematically and gradually pull away from the dryland training.  If you implement in-season training, it allows you to have something to eliminate for better recovery.  The bonus of the in-season work is getting all the benefits of the “Bigger, stronger, faster and quickness” components.

 

In Season Training Components:

1. Speed and acceleration Drills

2. Cone, Agility, Footwork Drills

3. Lower & Upper Body Eccentric, Isometric, Concentric strengthening

4. Core stability, Rotational range of motion and Diaphragm Strengthening

5. Shoulder, Hip, elbow and knee pre-hab for injury prevention

6. Postural strengthening to avoid the injury potential due to kyphosis from hockey

7. Plyometric and Assisted Acceleration exercises, (Jumps, box jumps, medicine ball throws)

 

If this is what you are looking for, we can work together on having a great season.
