I am thinking of enrolling in this program. I would be in the acceleration plus. How would this help with ski racing? WOuld it? I would like to hear some input
Acceleration
This training program challenges all participants to improve: first-step, multidirectional agility, speed, flexibility, muscular endurance, reaction time, balance, and coordination. The Acceleration Program begins at the bottom half of each hour (3:30, 4:30, etc.) Monday through Friday. Buy sessions and "jump in." Our training staff works with each athlete regardless of their age, ability, or sport to increase their overall performance.
The Acceleration and Acceleration Plus Programs are designed around your time allowances, practice and game schedule, and always around your budget! Call today for more information - (828) 687-7999!

Acceleration Plus
The "Plus" program immediately follows ASI's speed and development training. Each session last an additional :30 minutes, focusing on sport specific lifts. The main objectives of this program are to increase range of motion, increase muscular endurance, improve connective tissue response, and ultimately decrease the chances of injury resulting from inadequate preparedness and/or fatigue.

These objectives sound excellent to me

Hello scracer,

This might a little late for you but I will tell my opinion anyway .

Generally speaking the goals of the program sound great. They focus on areas and abilities that are very often ignored or forgotten in ski exercise programs.

I believe the purpose of conditioning programs for any sport is to build and improve general athletic skills such as coordination, speed, agility, functional strength, deceleration etc. When you have build a foundation of athleticism, the skiing specific skills are absorbed much more effectively by your neuro-muscular system.

Another great thing that they mention was increasing the connective tissue response and the whole idea of regeneration and recovery. It is very easy to create a training stimulation but the actual adaptation to training occurs only under circumstances where the body can actively (and passively) regenerate itself and actually have an opportunity improve.

I would check the program out. Focus on becoming a better athlete and the skiing abilities will follow. Have fun!
