Proteus Motion: Implementation of the Cressey Power Report
Bullett Performance brought in a Proteus Motion that allows you the capability to use the technology to track and test your movement patterns and power development with 3D resistance. The Proteus allows you to move fluidly throughout movements in a capacity different than you would experience with other training tools such as barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, and cable machines. Last week, we covered the General Power Test and I thought it would be a great opportunity to discuss how we apply the Cressey Power Test to baseline and track your progress.
The Cressey Power Test is a series of ten movements testing both bilateral and unilateral movements as well counter/non-countermovement trunk rotations which closely replicate movements seen in rotational sports such as baseball, softball, golf, tennis, hockey, as well as many others. The Cressey Power Test challenges the neuromuscular system to create and transfer force throughout the entire body just like you would need in athletic movements in sport.
The report provides you with an in-depth analysis of your performance qualities such as power and acceleration. When it comes to developing better athletes, we strive to increase both power/acceleration, and Proteus gives us quantifiable values to then direct precise programming strategies depending on strengths and weaknesses.
The Cressey Power Test is an exceptional strategy to measure your performance and identify where you are on the force-velocity curve, thus providing great insight on how to improve each quality through specific training practices.
