Our programs are designed to encompass a base training cycle and in-season programming from calendar lengths of 8 up to 20 weeks in length. Our detailed video instruction will take you step by step from warm up to cool down showing you exactly what needs to be done in terms of proper posture positions for technique, reps and sets along with percentages of all lifts as well as multiple core routines to help you in every track and field, cross country, and road running. Athletes and coaches must supplement their training with quality programming in the weight room.
Beginner: This includes youth athletes up through the younger high school ranks. We have designed this program for age group athletes keeping things basic and to the point. Younger athletes must find interest and success in our sport. We have kept this at the forefront of our mind keeping the training basic and the volume limited with an understanding that most practices must be kept short in duration.
Intermediate: Our intermediate level is designed with high school age athletes in mind. At Trackwired we understand the wide variety of age, motivation, and talent levels that are included in this group. The volume and technical component of this programming is a significant step up from the beginner level; however, we feel confident that our programs encompass a wide range of needs for all athletes that focus on power development and core strength through a systematic progression to keep the athletes healthy. This program focuses on essential lifting fundamentals and prescribes a training volume that is appropriate to challenge the athlete while giving them the opportunity to see improvement on a daily basis.
Advanced: Our advanced level lifting program is designed for the elite level high school athlete through college and into the professional ranks that have proven they have the ability to train at the highest level. This program includes higher volume and intensity training, and top end olympic lifts for advanced athletes looking to take their training to an elite level. If you want to be an elite athlete, you must be efficient and effective with your lifting technique. Proper posture, functional strength, and explosiveness along with core stability are essential in every event in track and field, cross country, and road running. Attention to the details is a must when looking to improve by even the smallest of margins. This prescribed training plan will challenge you but give you the tools needed to take your skill set to the next level.
