One of the biggest concerns of both the parent and athlete today is injury prevention.  With sports becoming more competitive each year, and with scholarships on the line, injury prevention is developing into a main concern for all.  As the game progresses, it becomes more demanding of the athlete and even more taxing on their […]

Strength = Speed

02/13/2013

Almost every time an athlete or parent comes through our door, they’re looking for “speed” training.  Whether it’s their sole goal, or one of many, just about everyone wants to get faster.  And it’s completely understandable.  Every sport is getting faster and more explosive.  If you want to compete, you too need to get faster and more explosive.  […]

Congratulations Ellyn Snider!

01/17/2013

Ellyn Snider is a young track star.  I like to think of her more as a “track stud”.  She was recently named Sun Sentinel’s and The Palm Beach Post’s “Runner of the Year” (for 2012), and has also received honorable mentions from FLRunners.com.  But that’s not all.  Ellyn also won the FACA All-Star Cross Country Meet […]

Nutrition: The Next Generation

12/19/2012

I think it goes without saying that nutrition “Trumps” all when it comes to being health conscious.  In no way am I downplaying the importance of a routine workout, however without proper nutrition the results of your workout can be significantly limited.  Now what if I told you eating chicken or tuna fish was unhealthy […]

Misconceptions about Nutrition

12/07/2012

Many people struggle with understanding what the body requires in terms of nutrients to function at its highest level of performance.  The importance of getting a variety of nutrients in the body is essential for proper nutrition. Carbohydrates are one of the nutrients that people have difficulty understanding how much they need in a day.  […]

Hydrating During Exercise

12/07/2012

The importance of hydration can never be over stressed, especially in South Florida. Athletes must stay hydrated to perform at their very best. Fluids are crucial for athletes because fluids transport nutrients throughout the body to help working muscles, eliminate overheating and manage waste in the body. Many athletes do not realize the importance of […]

You have Skills, but what about Character? RG3 knows Alfred Morris has both.

11/29/2012

In sports today we highlight the big plays, the ungodly paychecks, and the less than appropriate acts of our professional “mentors”.  It isn’t often, and never breaking news (usually passed with just a smile of appreciation or a nod of approval), when we highlight a good deed or recognize great character. I strongly feel that […]

High School Football Combine Training

11/28/2012

Combines are no longer just for the Pro’s.  In recent years, it’s been high school athletes who have increasingly become more involved and more dependent on combines.  As football remains a highly competitive sport in South Florida (the #1 recruited area in the nation for college football. See: goo.gl/MryGbw), athletes need every chance they can get […]

Sports Nutrition

10/01/2012

Food is a key ingredient for the human body and nutrition is crucial to the success of every athlete. Here at Athlete’s Edge, we emphasize the importance of eating a balanced meal in order to perform at maximum capacity. Oftentimes, improper consumption can be noticed due to an athlete’s poor performance on the field.  Nutrition […]

College Strength and Conditioning vs. High School Strength and Conditioning

10/01/2012

The difference between these two categories of athletes has many distinctions. High school athletes are trying to perform better during their sport and becoming stronger and more functional on a day by day basis. But great care must be taken since they are normally beginning resistance training and are still in the growing stages. Because […]

Proper recovery during training

10/01/2012

During an individual’s training there are specific rest times or intervals as some may call it that needs to be ascertained.  For someone commencing Power training there is normally a 2-5 minute rest period between sets for the ATP that was just used in the body to re-accumulate to as close to 100% as possible; […]

Youth Speed Training

10/01/2012

Normally for young children speed training constitutes learning to perform proper technique in a linear direction of running. During young childhood and early adolescence there are 2 distinct phases children go through. One is a child that has not yet gone through puberty and is comfortable with their body and is in full control. While […]

Proper Hydration

10/01/2012

When it comes to proper hydration you must maintain 15 to 20 ounces before a workout. Then 15 minutes before you begin, drink between 8-10 ounces of water. Followed by during a workout regiment, you should drink another 8 ounces every 15 minutes to maintain adequately hydrated. Remember your body and muscles are mostly made […]

Dallas Finds a Diamond in the Second-Round Rough

07/25/2012

Being a selection in the second round of the N.B.A. draft is both a dream come true and a cruel tease; being picked on draft night brings prospects close to the big leagues, and yet comes with the astoundingly low probability of playing regular or meaningful N.B.A. minutes. Many are in the N.B.A. only technically, […]

Proper Base Stealing Technique

04/30/2012

Every time that we do a clinic on base stealing, close to 90% of the players have been taught the “cross-over” step, as their first step towards second base.  With this, the athlete staggers their feet and opens their lead step and hips to make an easier path towards second base.  However, in the event […]

Athletes Edge Tennis Training Philosophy: Movement, not Muscles

04/23/2012

If you desire to be an elite tennis player then you must be able to move well. The game is faster and more explosive than ever before and so are the athletes who play it. Movement separates players at all levels of the game: pro, college and junior. It’s no surprise the Top 4 players who dominate the […]

Tennis Footwork: Drop Step

04/12/2012

The drop step is used in tennis to step backward so a player can absorb pace or depth from their opponent or to create space on a ball hit directly at them.  The technique involves opening the hip backward from a split-step and then either planting to hit the ball or continuing back and then […]

Lateral Quickness in Basketball

04/06/2012

It is estimated that 60% of basketball is comprised of lateral quickness.  The problem that we have found with this is that youth and high school coaches neglect teaching the proper mechanics of lateral movement and most youth athletes simply lack the proper strength development to move efficiently. Strengthening the Glute Med (gluteus medius) is […]

Football Speed Training

04/05/2012

Footballs most coveted ability is speed, speed kills!!  People say that you are either born with it or you aren’t.  This is not completely true.  Yes, there is a ceiling on how fast an athlete can get but with proper strength and technique training an athlete can reach their full potential and improve their overall […]

Lateral Movement in Tennis – Tennis Performance Training

02/06/2012

The ability to move well laterally in tennis is imperative for an elite player.  Most shots are followed by a lateral recovery back into an optimal court position.  Movement to the ball starts from a lateral position with a split-step and the opening of the hips in the direction of the next shot.  Hip strength […]

3 Weight Room Methods to Improve Pitching Velocity

08/19/2011

Isometric Holds – Tennis Performance Training

07/28/2011

Tennis is a sport requiring players to be strong enough to hold very awkward positions. For example, picture Kim Clijsters finishing in a split on a wide forehand or Novak Djokovic looking like Gumby after stretching to hit a low, open-stance backhand. Core strength is required not only to get into to this position to […]
