Volume 38 - Third Quarter 2015"NEW FEATURE COMING SOON: COMPETITION LEADERBOARDS"
Competition is one of the best motivators in the weight room. It gives athletes that extra bit of incentive, not to mention fuel for some amazing smack talk.
That is what our Competition Leaderboard promotes. By pushing real-time stats from EliteForm’s Competition module to screens and monitors throughout your room, Competition Leaderboard heightens the intensity in your room and promotes a greater culture of competition.
Your organization’s branding is used to provide a unique look to the Competition Leaderboard. Competition Leaderboard only requires a computer connected to any television or display in your weight room.
Competition Leaderboard will be available mid-October. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your Competition Leaderboard implementation.
WELCOMING TO THE ELITEFORM FAMILY OF PROGRAMS…
We’ve had a busy summer installing new clients across the country. In just a few short weeks Kansas State, Mississippi State, and Illinois equipped their weight rooms with EliteForm Integrated units.
At Kansas State, the K-State staff, PowerLift, and EliteForm collaborated on a custom rack design where power for EliteForm Integrated units could be plugged right into the base.
STRENGTHPLANNER TIPS & TRICKS: USING “EXERCISE NAME” TO BREAK OUT LIFT METRICS
As coaches initially customize their EliteForm account by adding Exercises performed by their athletes, it’s common for them to equate the Exercise name directly to the Tracker Classification. This is a solid initial step in gathering athlete analytics, but so much more can be done.
Based on your programming methodology, you can expand your Exercise List to describe your goals or approach within a given set. This will help you analyze a set more easily, as well as provide more insights of key progressions of your athletes.
One example would be to use Exercise names to categorize the traits you are seeking to develop with that set. This NCAA article provides several examples.
Another example is listing a “Plus Set” for when you have your athletes complete as many sets as possible above a specified Power or Velocity amount.
CEO STRENGTH COACH
Nationally-recognized Strength and Conditioning Coach Ron McKeefery’s new book CEO Strength Coach recently went on sale and is garnering great reviews from across the country.
We’re biased, but we think the book is a must-read for coaches at any level.
Coach Mac has been a friend of EliteForm almost since our beginning and we’re proud to sponsor his podcast, Iron Game Chalk Talk.
