I've never strength trained in my life - but after six weeks with Profunctional Running, I am deadlifting my body weight, jumping twice per week, incorporating running drills, and generally recover from my workouts so much quicker!
What do performance sessions look like?
Progressive strength and loading enables all endurance athletes to increase their "functional capacity". Functional capacity refers to the amount of work that an. athlete can do over the course of a day, week, month etc. We will meet you where you at, whether you've had zero experience or are a saavy lifter.
From the time our foot hits the ground during landing until the time it leaves the ground to push-off, our ankle, knee, hip, spine, and arms/torso go through a set of specific movements which enable us to "load and explode".
Plyometrics strengthen bones and joints, increase muscular strength, have been shown to improve running efficiency and coordination, and stiffen tendons/joints which mean greater and faster mechano-elastic energy transmission, less energy loss and therefore greater power performance.
Optimize your running mechanics through a series of progressive form drills geared toward decreasing ground contact time, pulling through using hamstring/glute, quick and efficient swing through, and landing underneath your center of gravity.
