Non-contact knee and shoulder injuries are largely the result of poor movement and lifting mechanics. When an athlete turns sharply and tears their ACL, or suffers a debilitating shoulder injury from throwing, it is likely due to having poor form in the weight room. Along with risk for injury, an athlete with poor mechanics is missing out on their peak performance. By not using the right form and muscle systems, power, speed, strength, and agility are all lowered. The Mav Mechanics Camp is lead by McCutcheon's Strength & Conditioning Coach and Movement Coach Lucas Woody. In these sessions, your athlete will be given hands-on, intuitive instructions on how to lift, jump, and sprint with proper mechanics. The goals of this camp are two-fold: 1) Improve mechanics to avoid injury and increase overall performance. 2) Use these foundational techniques to gain higher levels of athleticism throughout their career.
Schedule & Sessions: The Mav Mechanics Camp will meet Mondays & Wednesdays in the McCutcheon Weight Room (adjacent to the main gym). There are two 1-hour session options. You may choose either the 1:00p session or 2:30p session. Each session has the same material, but allows for smaller groups & more attention per athlete. Sessions begin June 5th. Each session, the athlete will learn proper mechanics for 1-2 of the main lifts, including: Squat, Bench Press, Clean, Deadlift, Overhead Press, Pull-up, Push-up. All lifts will be taught to the level of the athlete, regardless of their current ability to perform a movement. The athletes will also be taught proper jumping and landing techniques and sprinting mechanics.
