How Do Professional Trainers Help Student-Athletes?

Only 37% of the high schools in the United States have any form of a professional trainer on hand.

How important are professional trainers for basketball and general athletic development? They are essential to any student-athlete who wants to reach their full potential.
Why is this the case?

Getting the Most Out of a Workout

When it comes to working out, form and technique are vital. If you lift the wrong way, you don’t gain the full benefit of each rep. A professional trainer is there to make sure that the student-athletes are able to fully utilize each exercise.

Getting the most out of every repetition and workout is one of the avenues to unlocking your true potential. We all have a limited amount of time in the day to work out, so optimizing the return for this effort is what a professional trainer can do. You’ll never reach your peak if you’re lifting the wrong way.

Motion and Injuries

When we work out, we aren’t only stressing our muscles but also our joints, tendons, and ligaments. A professional trainer knows how to keep dangerous injuries from happening. They can instruct and demonstrate to their students the ways to avoid an injury that could take months to heal.

We can, without meaning to, put too much stress on joints during normal workouts. This damage can accumulate and cause nagging pain and other ailments. These conditions make it difficult to play, practice, or even study and therefore must be avoided at all costs.

For the best results, the full range of motion for each muscle must be worked out without placing undue stress on the body. This is one of the reasons why professional athletes rely on professional trainers to work with them. Student-athletes at Accelerated Prep also get this benefit.

Don’t run the risk of causing a permanent or chronic injury because of incorrect technique or form. Modern science and professionals have unlocked the way to build muscle and performance without causing injury. Accelerated Prep opens up this knowledge to all of our student-athletes.
