Neuro Training for Athletes in Irvine

What Does Neuro Training Mean for Athletic Performance?

Neuro training is about training sensory inputs to improve motor outputs.

The better & faster you sense and process your environment, the better and faster you move and perform.

With Neuro training, any athlete can take their training to the next level.

What Makes Neuro Training Different?

Your nervous system utilizes three primary tools (physiologic systems) to orient you in your environment:

  • Your Visual system
  • Your Vestibular system (balance)
  • Your Proprioceptive (movement) system

The traditional training approach emphasizes OUTPUT. The way you jump, lift, run, move.

We train sensory INPUT as well to improve your movement. You can do all the exercises you want, but if you aren’t paying attention to these systems, you might be missing that golden nugget.

Practical example: if your eyes are sending lousy information (input) into your brain, your brain doesn't feel safe, and it won’t let you perform as you want. In other words, it won’t let you jump high or move fast.

Optimize Your Training With The Neuro Approach

To improve the quality of your performance from “neuro” perspective can be explained pretty simply. Decrease the THREAT to your brain by improving your VISION and BALANCE, so your brain can predict better and your PERFORMANCE will THRIVE.

What are the benefits of neuro-training for athletic performance?

  • Speed and reaction time improves with how quickly you SEE and DECIDE what to do
  • Improve body awareness, motor control and mobility
  • Sense your environment and your opponent better by how accurately you feel and respond to sensation
  • Eliminate recurring aches and pains that slow your training down
  • Improve stamina capacity
  • Develop better body ownership and sense of where you are in space so your movement is more accurate
  • Learn how to manage pain by understanding how to choose the right drills for you

What are some sensory inputs we train to improve and optimize your Athletic Performance?

  • Vision
  • Vestibular
  • Movement and sensation training
  • Respiration

Optimize Your Training

Sensory input via our visual system helps us make sense of our surroundings. The visual system is our #1 predictive system. The better your visual acuity, the BETTER & FASTER you move and function as an athlete.

We're not talking about eyesight here. We are talking about accuracy and interpretation and reaction time. How well and fast does your brain process what you see? Can you see your teammate or opponent in your periphery?

What is important for you to look at in your surroundings? What should you not be looking at? Do moving targets make you dizzy?

Sensory input via our onboard balance system, which is called the vestibular system, is responsible for telling us which way is up and which way we are going.

The vestibular system senses every move you make through space whether you are traveling or just turning your head.

Even a minor deficit in the vestibular system will compromise your balance & accuracy, especially during an athletic performance.

How long can you stand on one leg without losing your balance? Now, how long can you stand on one leg, turning your head side to side, without losing your balance? Now, how long can you stand on one leg with your eyes closed while turning your head side to side without falling?

 

Sensory input via receptors in our joints and tissues comes from what we "feel" either through sensation or through movement itself. The skin is the largest organ and our #1 survival tool. Receptors in the skin, joints, and tissues that sense movement, highly concentrated in joints but also covering our whole body, help us sense where we are and how well we are moving.

We also have receptors that sense light touch, pressure, warm/cold, sharp/dull, and vibration.

We train receptors that sense movement & sensations through:

    Movement Precision
    Sensory Training

When your coach asks you to voluntarily correct a movement can you make the adjustment or do you need constant reminders? Is your foot landing where you think it is? How accurate are you with hitting a moving target? Do you feel the ground, your opponent, the stick in your hand?

90% of the people we see in person have faulty chest dominant breathing. Chest breathing is keeping you in constant FLIGHT or FIGHT state, increasing your stress level, not allowing you to use full capacity of your lungs.

How well we breathe is directly related to our stamina and oftentimes determines the winner in any competition.

Our Respiratory Muscle Training improves Respiratory efficiency & Breathing Pattern, Lower Perception of Breathlessness, Improves Physical Performance in Hypoxia

It's not just about cardio or VO2max . How long does it take you to warm up? Do you know how to train respiratory muscles? Do you know how to manage your breath? How fast do you recover from a metabolic challenge? How long does it take you to clear metabolic waste post-training?
