Other Sports Articles

Non-traditional sports that are growing in popularity at the high school and collegiate level include field hockey, rugby, gymnastics, water polo and others. Field hockey and rugby require short-burst speed and enhanced aerobic conditioning to perform at the highest level throughout a game, in addition to full-body strength for positioning and winning one-on-one battles. Gymnasts must also possess total-body strength and flexibility to perform the complex movements specific to their events. Water polo athletes must train lower-body power to drive through the water, gain shoulder strength to help with injury prevention and improve overall flexibility. Enhance skills for your sport with advice from today's top trainers and athletes.
