Twist Conditioning has built its own unique system of training. The Twist Training paradigm focuses on training movement, not muscle. The system helps athletes to develop efficient, quick, powerful, deceptive, and confident movement abilities that will translate into increased sport skills, tactics, and overall performance. This method has developed and evolved through years of practical experience and sport science research. Traditional methods of training, such as muscle isolation, machine-based training, aerobic training, and linear speed training can all lead to injury and leave the body ill-prepared for the demands of sport and life.
The Twist Sport Conditioning Paradigm draws upon the secondary fitness characteristics: anaerobic energetics, dynamic balance, speed, agility, quickness, multi-directional movement skills, muscle reactivity, joint stability, whole body reaction skills, multi-joint strength, whole-body power initiation, rotary core power, deceleration and other athletic attributes that contribute to making athletes more skillful and durable.
This package contains the Sport Strength: Chest and Back workbook and DVD.
Course Goals: This course is intended to instruct the student through self-paced study, on ways to improve their competence in the field of sport conditioning by developing competence in the Twist Sport Strength: Chest and Back training methodology.
