7. How will my athlete be trained?
AGA focuses heavily on technique in a systematic, planned approach that develops sequenced movements and flow. We accomplish this through drilling at an increasing pace through understanding of the technique. As the athlete develops this understanding, they can move on to more intense training and sparring.
Our athletes develop mental and physical toughness through consistent repetition, so their bodies are conditioned to the rigors of wrestling and their minds are clear and focused due to movements being trained so thoroughly that they become second nature.
8. How does the Strength & Conditioning programming work?
AGA's programming is designed following the guidelines of nationally recognized training programs like EXOS & USA Weightlifting . Our programming is designed to develop functional movement & mobility first, then expanding the athletes' fitness goals. We focus on the following areas - Strength and Power, cardiovascular endurance, agility, speed, accuracy, mobility, and flexibility. We work with and assess each athlete individually to develop them within their physiology.
Our programming is detailed, organized, and measurable. We work in cycles, usually planned for a specific event.
