A simple way to play better. Escape Sport's training Medford NJ



Athletic development can often be a puzzle that needs to be solved by the individual athlete. One such case is one of our middle school going into high school clients Doug. Doug is a pretty darn good athlete, he is fast, stable and holds the Escape pull-up record. There was something he was missing in his performance as seen in the first video in this post of him kicking (below), he was unstable and wasn't projecting his full power while kicking.

Doug's instability was a big issue for his performance and health.

At this point, many programs may try just to keep doing power work with the thought that was what he needed. The result would probably be minimal to no progress and in our opinion, could lead to him just hurting himself due to possibly kicking harder without proper "brakes" or body control.


In this case of Doug, he needed some mobility work followed by a specific stability drill which resulted in his ability to use and maintain proper mechanics when kicking. As well as more of ability to express his strength and power in his kick due to his increased stability. (Check out video number 2 below to see this in action.)

So that, in short, is a simple way to play better, assess the movement and then correct and reassess it to see how well the correction worked and kept doing it until it becomes permanent. (6 to 8 weeks) Then do it often enough to maintain the ability during your season.

That, in essence, is the cornerstone of our program here at Escape, and we are so happy how it helps people not only play better than ever but how it also helps them move better!
