CSM Soccer Players Work Out

Right now, we are in the 4th week of our winter conditioning program with the Xplosive Edge. X-Edge is located inside the Omaha Sports Complex, also known as "The Center" on 147th and Giles, just off of the highway 50 exit on interstate 80. We are trained by Gibb Duvall and Jaron Cook. I really believe in the benefits of their program. One way the X-Edge training shows itself is in the latter part of games. For example, last season the team went into 3 overtimes and won all three. Part of our success in overtime I attribute to our X-Edge training. Another big reason I believe in the X-Edge program is because of injury prevention. We just do not get soft tissue injuries (muscle pulls.) The only injuries we have had the past two seasons are a couple ankle sprains due to bad turf and a clavicle break (she got her foot caught in a net and fell hard on her shoulder.) Also, their program teaches correct running and cutting techniques which helps prevent injuries like ACL tears. It is challenging and not many people like getting up early to go work out, but I think it is great. It is part of who we are.

I would recommend the X-Edge program to anyone.
