NJ Shore Fit Trainers Donald Shrump, Sean Settles, and Anthony DeLuca will be heading back to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy (PBHOF) in Canton, OH again this month. At the PBHOF Academy, the hand-picked, top High School Football Players from around the country will be attending the Elite Summer Academies where we will be evaluating each player as an athlete.
We look at the athlete as a whole, so they can be a better position player and better team player. At the PBHOF Academy, they have some of the best football position coaches in the game, as well as some of the best team coaches teaching strategy, so it is NJ Shore Fit’s job to bring the our Sports Science Testing to each athlete. We will evaluate each athlete with the latest technology to identify areas that the they can improve with specific training programs when they go home.
Unlike the traditional 40-yard dash, we look at stride-by-stride analysis of their sprinting ability. We will be evaluate each athlete for leaks in their ability to linearly accelerate. Every step these elite athletes makes needs to be speeding them up when they are sprinting and we can see if their right leg is actually slowing them down compared to the left. We can provide valuable insight to an athlete that is not normally analyzed in order to provide key training recommendations so they can become more efficient at running and ultimately a better athlete.
Dynamic stability will be measured with Drift Protocol. Dynamic stability is the ability to control the power that the athlete creates. In this test we ask them to jump 5 times on one leg. Their goal is to jump as high as they can, as fast as they can, and land on a dime. Most athletes with common muscle imbalances, old injuries that have not recovered from years ago, or improper training in the weight room will have difficultly maintaining dynamic stability. Again, this valuable insight to the athletic ability of each player will be analyzed and training programs developed to correct their timing, balance, and coordination.
We will be testing a number of other athletic abilities like reaction time, cognitive processing, and true agility at the #PBHOF Academy https://twitter.com/PFHOFAcademy follow the action.
