Core & Plyometric: Tuesdays - Thursdays, 9:00 - 10:30 AM & 4:00 - 5:30 PM at Lake Park (near the Clubhouse)
Core & Plyometric training are integral components of athleticism, offering tremendous benefits to all competitive athletes. It has been proven scientifically that strengthening the core is the best way to overcome plateaus in training and plyometrics are the most efficient way to activate fast-twitch muscle fibers.
At OCYSA, not only do we teach the same core and plyometric techniques as used in the U.S. Olympic Training Center (OTC), but we also teach how to aid your bodies in recovery by learning high level static and dynamic warm ups, paired with active recovery techniques (foam rolling , prehabilitation ect.) used by the OTC.
Plyometric Training, also known as "jump training" or "plyos", are exercises in which develop larger fast-twitch muscle groups in the human body. These muscles exert maximum force in very short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing quickness, speed and power in bursts. This training focuses on learning to move from a muscle extension to a contraction in a rapid or "explosive" manner, such as in specialized repeated jumping. Plyometrics are primarily used by competitive athletes of all kinds and to improve performance, in athletic events where speed, power and quickness matter.
Core Training is training that focuses on the the human body's stabilizer muscles and force transfer center. This includes the upper legs, glutes, traverse abdominis (TVA), erector spinae, obliques and your lower lats. These muscles work as stabilizers for the entire body. Core training is simply doing specific exercises to develop and strengthen these stabilizer muscles. Core training provide strength gains, more efficient movement, and longevity of sport health and has been linked to injury prevention.
Doing your Core and Plyometric training together is the most efficient way to maximize the efficiency of the full force of your lean muscle mass when it is expressed in athletic competition.
