With over 50 years ofcombined professional football playing experience, this program is unmatched and will helpany aspiring football player maximize their talents. The BARWIS facilities have one of thelargest indoor training spaces which allow us to be versatile in our fundamental trainingtechniques.
WEIGHT TRAININGUsing a completely scientific approach to weight training progression, a cycle will be designed to meet your needs. Every program is individualized for each athlete intended to help them reach their goals specific to their position and the combine. Our trianing is catered to any injuries or biomechanical issues the athlete may be experiencing.
ARS SCREEN, EVALUATION, & CORRECTIVE EXERCISES"The BARWIS ARS Screen (Activation Resistance Synergy) is designed to go through every joint and muscle throughout the body to help identify and resolve imbalance and pattern issues an athlete may have. We use these results to write corrective exercises catered to helping the athlete get back on track, fix any imbalances, and help them perform at their maximum capabilities. The BARWIS ARS Screen provides a detailed assessment of the Activation, Inhibition, Range of Motion, Impedance, and Synergistic Patterns of the Neuromuscular System in order to develop a customized corrective exercise program that resolves imbalances, weaknesses, and inefficiencies. Through this process, we are able to establish resilience to injury while improving overall performance and functional movement.
MEDIA/INTERVIEW PREPARATIONDealing with the media and knowing what to say and how to say it, is part of being a professional athlete. We help prepare athletes in communicating who they are and what they can do when addressing media, scouts, head coaches, GMs, and the general public.
INJURY PREVENTIONThis program focuses on the strengthening and stabilization of the neck, knee, ankle, hips, and shoulder. A stable and effective functioning joint allows for optimum power output, which increases performance while decreasing the risk of common injuries.
CORE STRENGTHA strong core is an extremely important characteristic of any athlete. It is the center for most body movements, allowing effective transfer of power from upper and lower extremities, and is necessary for increasing your speed, agility, overall strength, explosiveness, and coordination.
BALANCE AND FUNCTIONAL TRAININGImprove your kinesthetic awareness (knowledge of body position in three-dimensional space). This program utilizes all of the body’s proprioceptors to enhance performance on the field or during activities of daily living. The cycle includes a vast array of exercises to accommodate all levels of training and remove any form of program stagnation.
PLYOMETRIC, EXPLOSIVE, IMPULSE TRAINING"These exercises teach the body to utilize the elastic principles of the muscles and increase neural impulse speed through trained activation; this occurs all while reducing the risk of soft-tissue injury. Includes training for the upper and lower body.
FLEXIBILITY & RANGE OF MOTIONThis program will help you maintain and improve your passive and active range of motion in your joints and surrounding muscles; reducing the risk of injury and promoting performance. Many times our common hamstring, back, and knee pain can be caused by inflexibility and tight structures. When following our specialized stretching program, you can eliminate these issues to further prevent any limitations in your performance. Being able to move through a full range of motion can increase power output by optimizing biomechanical leverage position.
SPEED TRAININGThis program provides a proper speed training progression that consists of running mechanics and technique drills. The cycles will encompass resistive running drills, free running for acceleration and top-end speed, and over-speed drills that will focus on neural impulse speed and physiological adaptation.
AGILITY TRAININGThis cycle specifically focuses on the central nervous system to enhance change of direction, acceleration, and deceleration, while providing you with the proper progression of drills based on your sport and level of training.
