It is important to determine where athletes rank among their peers and to track their progress. Athletic testing will always be done periodically by staff to adjust client's training programs. However, testing with various methods can be done at anytime throughout the year. At EEA, we utilize advanced testing equipment that many of our competitors do not. Using this equipment we are aware of an athlete's explosive and reactive strength capabilities. This is not only the starting point for planning an athlete's training program, but it is also something that needs to be constantly monitored. This ensures that an athlete is working at the proper loading and speed to reach their desired training effect, both effectively and safely.
