QB Trunk Training And Motor Training

A man training

Coach Mike Wolf spent 15 years as Head Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Philadelphia Eagles and was voted Strength and Conditioning Coach of the year in 2001 by his NFL peers. He has coached at the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings, Vanderbilt, Lehigh, Penn State and is currently Director of Trainer Development at Ignition APG.

Motor tasks are a crucial link between action and cognition. Motor skills entail distinct cognitive functions. Simulation training interventions directly tap into improved cognitive skills. Strengthening the musculature associated with the movement augments the process.

Coach Wolf shows us quarterback trunk training techniques combined with motor skill development that can be done while an athlete is away from his facility.
