Viking Athletics utilizes VALD performance products, including Force Decks and Nord Board, to conduct sports performance testing. These cutting-edge tools allow athletes to assess and optimise their physical capabilities, enabling them to enhance their athletic performance.
The Force Decks system is designed to measure force output and asymmetries during movements like jumps and isometric tests. It provides valuable insights into an athlete's strength and power, allowing them to identify areas for improvement and track progress over time.
The Nord Board, on the other hand, is a tool specifically designed for assessing hamstring strength and imbalance. It measures eccentric hamstring strength through Nordic Hamstring Curls, helping athletes prevent hamstring injuries and optimise their performance on the field.
By incorporating VALD performance products into their testing protocols, Viking Athletics can accurately evaluate an athlete's force production, identify weaknesses or imbalances, and design targeted training programs to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury. These tools enable athletes to fine-tune their physical abilities and elevate their overall sports performance.
