  What's New: Cross Training Improves Fitness and Reduces Injury  

Cross Training Improves Fitness and Reduces Injury

Not sure volleyball is for you? Hockey, basketball, football, baseball, etc are your primary sports? Then pay attention to this: recently posted an article regarding cross training for improved fitness and reducing injuries. "Cross training is a great way to condition different muscle groups, develop a new set of skills, and reduce boredom that creeps in after months of the same exercise routines...also allows you the ability to vary the stress placed on specific muscles or even your cardiovascular system. Cross training is also necessary to reduce the risk of injury from repetitive strain or overuse."

Benefits of Cross Training

* Reduces exercise boredom

* Allows you to be flexible about your training needs and plans

* Produces a higher level of all around conditioning

* Conditions the entire body, not just specific muscle groups

* Reduces the risk of injury

* Work some muscles while others rest and recover

* Can continue to train while injured

* Improves your skill, agility and balance

 Volleyball is the perfect cross training sport. It improves speed, strength, agility, balance, coordination and flexibility. Don't believe me? Ask these former Massey volleyball players that moved on to elite levels in their sports how using volleyball as a cross training tool worked for them:

Andrew Loewen - hockey - Columbus Cottonmouths (Southern Pro Hockey League)

Calin Wild - hockey - U of MB (CIS)

Ryan Willerton - basketball - U of W (CIS)

Reave MacKinnon - hockey - St Michael's College (NCAA Div 2)

Drew Caddick - hockey - Winnipeg Saints (MJHL)

Ben Fultz - badminton - MB Prov Doubles Champion

David Snider - badminton - Canadian Senior Mens Champion

Alex Lesiuk - tennis - St Cloud U (NCAA)

Chris Perron - baseball - UND (NCAA)

Jay Waters - track & field - U of MB (CIS)

 So, even if you have no aspirations of becoming a volleyball superstar, coming out and playing as a way to improve in your chosen sport is a great idea. See you in the gym soon?
