Cross Training Boot Camp Can Help You Be A Better Athlete

Being strong but slow in sports is not ideal.  Top athletes, whether it be running, playing football, baseball, basketball, cycling, etc,  all have one thing in common: they are strong and they can move quickly.  Being strong but slow in most sports isn’t ideal. Being able to produce force rapidly is part of what creates a top athlete.

A cross training boot camp like the one offered at Ultimate Fit Zone in Monmouth County, combines traditional strength training exercises with athletic performance exercises to create a diverse, multi-dimensional training program that can help athletes excel to the top.

A comparison of a strict strength building exercise with a strength and force building exercise is the strict overhead press and the push press.  The strict overhead press is what many body builders and strength trainers are accustomed to.  It involves isolating the shoulder muscles to push weight over the head.  It is great for building muscle and strength.

The push press is used in CrossFit and cross training programs to help build strength, force and speed.  The push press contrasts the strict press in that it calls on a larger variety of muscles (add in the lower body) to drive, push and stabilize the bar overhead.  This helps build power, speed and stability- things all athletes can benefit from.

Developing this explosive power and speed helps athletes run faster, cycle harder, be more nimble on the field, duck and dodge tackles, exert more force and be more agile.

Many of the cross training exercises in our Monmouth County boot camp gym are based on these principals.  We use a combination of these exercises plus traditional strength movements as well as cardio and body weight bearing movements to thoroughly work and train the muscles in the body not just for strength, but for speed and athleticism.  This program can benefit anyone looking to be more fit overall, even non-athletes.
