BODY SOLUTIONS SPORTS ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM

Excellence in sports enhancement and athletic developement


Body Solutions Sports Enhancement program is a comprehensive, multi-faceted program that will take an athletes' game to the next level.  Each individual will work on the following components: Comprehensive evaluations, performance assessment, biomechanics, strength, balance, stability, linear speed, quickness, multi-directional speed, plyometrics, reaction time, acceleration, explosive power, core stability, posture, flexibility, and rehabilitation.

Pre and post testing will be performed in the vertical jump, horizontal jump, 10 yard dash, 20 yard dash (during the winter months), 40 yard dash (during the spring, summer, and fall months), pro-agility, 300 yard shuttle. Additional testing will be done for all resistance training programs. Each athlete will have a start, finish test that will give the percentage of improvement made in each tested area.

Here are some athletes that have trained under Lynn Huber's guidance and programming. If you, your son or daughter have aspirations of acheiving success on the junior high, high school, collegiate, or professional level; this program is for you!


Daniel Davis





My name is Dan Davis, I'm a junior on Washington University in St. Louis' track and field team. I have trained with Lynn for the past two summers and have been very impressed by his understanding of power and strength training. I run the high hurdles at WashU and the transition to the 42" collegiate hurdles was a difficult one. My freshman season was a struggle in which I finally provisionally qualified for the national tournament at the last meet of the outdoor season, but fell short the top tier so unfortunately didn't get to compete. I started working with Lynn that summer, and his flexibility and comprehensiveness of program allowed me to reach all of my strength and weight goals. The power I developed in his program helped me to enter competition my sophomore year head and shoulders above where I left off freshman year, qualifying for nationals in the very first indoor meet and gaining division III All-American status as I placed 5th at the NCAA National Indoor Championships.  My latest update is that I won the Division III 100 m. hurdles championship in 2011. I just finished up a successful 2012 senior campaign running for the University of Iowa!



Michael O'Connell




I worked with Lynn on two different occasions. The first while I was a walk-on athlete at Iowa State. He worked with me over my holiday break in 2009. He really helped me with helping me improve my running technique. His attention to detail helped me improve my speed and agility times. The following fall I earned a scholarship.  The next time I went to work with Lynn was when I was getting ready for the NFL combine and my pro day in Ames. I went on to play for the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL.



Jacob Gannon





When I worked with Lynn he helped me improve my running technique as well as improved my lateral movement. I lost valuable 10ths of seconds off my 40 yard dash time. I also improved in my pro-agility, vertical jump, as well as significant gains in my lifts. Everything we did related to my on-field play well.  His program prepared me for the Division I football. At some point, I may work with Lynn again in the future!




Jenna Hermsen



My name is Jenna Hermsen and I'm currently a sophomore at Upper Iowa University, where I play softball. I am a pitcher and play second base. Having a year under my belt, I knew what to expect at the NCAA Division II level. I knew I had to get stronger, so I turned for Lynn for help. I was impressed with his knowledge of training. Lynn helped me improve my running technique, overall strength, explosiveness, and quickness. I can definately tell an on the field difference in my second year and hoping my improved skill set make a difference in our softball program this year!





PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy of my sports enhancement program is to utilize a variety of training exercises, techniques, tools and programs performed with the proper techniques to prepare the body for the physical demands of the sport to prevent injuries and increase the chances of success in sport and in life.  Through hard work, discipline, and following the outlined plan, we will be able to make an athlete more athletic. This philosophy is based on several sport and person development performances principles:

  1. Sport Similar Training – The only sport-specific training is actually participating in the sport. You can train sport-similar to movements and metabolic demands in a sport using equipment and training devices that will help simulate the sport movements and metabolic demands with more resistance.  By training in this manner, athletes will develop the appropriate energy systems, promote muscular adaptations that will help lead to them to superior sports performances, and decrease the risk of injury.
  2. Multiple Joint Exercises – During sport performance, no one body part is working as an isolated movement. The body is working together in an integrated, synergistic approach utilizing preceptors, joints and muscles to move through movement patterns quickly, efficiently and powerfully. Any motion in sport requires proper training in multiple joint movements, so proper timing of muscular recruitment patterns may occur. Thus, training the athlete in this manner by utilizing exercises that promote multi-jointed movements helps to maximize the functional and athletic performance of that athlete.
  3. Multi-plane Movements – With the exception of some sports, most are preformed in three planes: linear (forward/backward), transverse (up/down) and sagittal (side-to-side). Developing a training program that utilizes these movement patterns will be help the athlete agility and quickness in their sport. Only free weights have the ability for the body to move through these patterns.  Thus, incorporating agility training on top of straight sprinting will have a greater impact on sports performance.
  4. Ground Base Movements – The key to any training program are exercises and drills performed with feet on the ground.  Examples are squats, Olympic lifts, agility drills, plyometric drills; these are all ground based movement s that will increase speed and power production. 
  5. Explosive training – Most sports require quick and explosive movements that are multi jointed and ground based. Training the athlete to generate this type of explosion requires the recruitment of fast twitch muscle fiber motor recruitment.  Training the athlete in this manner will improve the recruitment of these muscle fiber motor units and increasing the athlete’s performances potential.
  6. Periodization – Is the scientific and systematic way of training the body using percentages, volume and progressive overload to achieve the optimal training program for each individual and their respective sport 
  7. Nutrition and Recovery – The lack of understand by young athletes is the need for these two important factors in a training program.  With out these two factors performances and improvements will suffer.  Educating the athlete on proper nutritional diets and sleep for their sport and health. So the athlete can reach their full potential in their sport performance.          

AGE BASED CONCEPTS AND FUNDAMENTALS


Children 12-15 Years

Young athletes at this stage will show signs of physical and mental maturation. Training considerations for this period of development will include the introduction to intermediate movement and speed skills.

Additionally, young athletes will develop greater systemic strength as bar and external-resistance, strength skills will be introduced. Lastly, athletes at this stage will be introduced to static flexibility and range-of-motion based activities.

15-18 Years

Athletes will be progressed to advanced movement and strength skills as the maturation process develops. Due to the nature of sport concerning most young athletes, the concept of sport-specific development doesn't have any implication on training protocols. Many athletes at this stage of development play multiple sports that require a variety of attributes that are fundamentally grounded upon the principles of strength, speed, movement, mobility, and coordination.

College, Pro, and Adult Athletes

Regardless of the level, regardless of the sport, off-time for the top level athlete is a crucial time to develop greater athletic attributes in preparation for the upcoming season.

Whatever your goal is, this is a professional grade program that exceeds current professional strength and conditioning standards to ensure you are on the top of your sport.
