Neuromechanical Skills Training (NST)

BioSport Technologies incorporates a progressive skills training technique into each sports performance program. In addition to restoring or improving flexibility, strength and power, the body must be re-trained to move in effective patterns for optimal performance output.

Once the movement pattern is identified and understood, a set of drills to re-train the pattern can be developed. These drills are designed to induce changes and adaptations in the neural pathways, which develops a better link between the brain and the muscles.

NST progression:

  1. Build the core movement pattern.
  2. Connect the core movement pattern to more complex movement patterns.
  3. Build the complex patterns into the sport activity.
  4. Finally enhance the overall sport activity pattern by increasing body segment speeds and momentum transfers.
