Improve performance with tailored training programs

In the summer of 2016, the New Yorker published an article in which it hypothesised the times of Usain Bolt over a distance of one mile. The article revealed a huge twist. It turned out that Usain Bolt had never run a mile in his entire life as a professional athlete. With 94 kg for 1.95 we didn't expect very short times, but it is the unavailability of the data - also certified by his coach - to surprise those who do not deal with high level sports. Bolt's predominantly anaerobic training would not have helped him over a distance of more than 400 metres and running long stretches would not have improved his sublime and very short explosions.
It might seem like a contradiction, but performance training involves and balances the whole body and, in fact, no one has ever thought that Bolt had an unbalanced physique. The ideal of strength proposed by these programs includes controlling the body and improving the quality of movement. Performance training coaches - whatever type of training you choose to do - have a more comprehensive approach.

From the generic exercise cards of the past to the current highly targeted programs that allow you to train specific performances, "tailor-made" fitness allows you to achieve your goals, harmonizing the whole body.

Performance training with SKILLATHLETIC

It is not only advanced equipment and constant monitoring of the physical level and performance but also the dissemination of targeted training programs. Aimed at what? It depends on objectives. SKILLATHLETIC TRAINING, for example, is a new method that focuses on performance improvement, with programs based on four key skills: strength, agility, speed and endurance. The program is divided into four classes - Boost, Mighty, Brave and Fast - each with different degrees of intensity and different types of equipment. SKILLATHLETIC TRAINING is one of the most advanced programs in the world of fitness and takes place only in specialised centres, but the performance workout programs are widespread everywhere and interest keeps growing.

High Intensity Interval Training

The parent of modern performance training programs is High Intensity Interval Training - HIIT, a training method that has always been used by runners, given the effectiveness for the heart of alternating medium intensity running of short sprints. HIIT has become mainstream in the last decade, when physiologists have also begun to conduct studies to demonstrate its real advantage over a system that keeps the heart at the same rate.
Although online and in gyms there are many HIIT programs that alternate aerobic and small weight exercises, for researchers the high intensity training is the only aerobic one, which lasts from 1 to 5 minutes and in which you reach 80% of your maximum heart rate. Under these conditions, the maximum VO2 increases, which is the maximum amount of oxygen that can be used by the body in the amount of time by an individual performing physical activity involving large muscle groups.

To start a performance training program in the best possible way, you need to measure your physical level through a series of assessments and identify the weaknesses and strengths on which to model the most efficient training. Because it is also a question of efficiency. Increasingly customised workouts allow you to achieve better results - longer lasting and safer - with perfectly calibrated sessions that reduce time wastage.
