with Andrea Hudy,
University of Kansas Assistant Athletic Director for Sport Performance;
MA, CSCS, RSCC, LMT, USAW-1;
Only female strength and conditioning coach in Men's DI Basketball (Labeled as Kansas' "secret weapon" during the 2011-12 Men's Basketball Season)
Andrea Hudy has helped strengthen the men's basketball program at the University of Kansas by utilizing liner and Lateral progressions. Using demonstrations from her athletes, Coach Hudy gives you an inside look at each of these progressions. As your athletes strengthen and master each exercise, Coach Hudy shows you how to safely and logically increase their workouts to improve. The drills follow a logical and safe progression, from beginner to advanced, and give you tools to build your program into a champion from within the weight room
Coach Hudy begins by breaking down linear progressions. Game situations occur in short spurts making acceleration a major factor in speed. These workouts are designed to increase your athletes ability to move both forward and backward (an important but neglected aspect in many sports) both quickly and safely. Both the ability to start and stop quickly are addressed, as well as strength building exercises to increase power. She utilizes an agility ladder and breaks down various stretches and agility work. She progresses into agility hurdles and various agilities to work on in this section. All of the agilities are applicable to every sport. All of the distances and expectations to each agility progress throughout the video, for maximum performance. Coach Hudy continues in her plyometric program with various jumps to progress in multiple areas.
Being able to quickly change directions from side to side increases an athlete's quickness. Coach Hudy's lateral (side-to side) movement drills utilize the ladder and various hurdles. These are ideal not only for sports featuring lateral action, but also to help strengthen muscles and increase coordination in all sports. She moves through a beginner to advanced progression. Each athlete demonstrates each agility within different progressions to allow you to understand the levels of progression. Hudy continues to use plyometric boxes and hurdles to continue a advanced progression of both lateral linear movement. She ends with linear acceleration and conditioning that can be applied for your program.
Finally Coach Hudy teaches you to combine both Linear and Lateral acceleration in a series of drills that you can use to mimic your sports specific challenges. Whether you are in an offensive or defensive stance the ability to beat your opponent from a dead stand still is devastating to your opponent.
This DVD is action packed with various progressions to help build performance both linearly and laterally. The agilities and progressions shown have been proven ways to build player performance both on the court and off the court each season at KU. One player with the ability to dominate a 1-on-1 match-up will be a significant factor in winning or losing. The drills in this DVD will help your athletes become a dominating force on any playing field.
