Optimizing Strength Training Using Plantar Pressure Mapping

In XSENSOR Technology’s webinar, presenter Antonio Robustelli (Sports Performance Scientist & Technologist with OmniAthlete Performance Concept) explores how to optimize strength training programming in sport using plantar pressure mapping technology.

Strength is one of five biomotor abilities and it has a fundamental role in sports performance, maximizing overall athleticism in both power and endurance-specific activities. The function of the foot directly affects the ability to apply force into the ground and strength development can also be negatively affected by a deficit in foot strength levels.

Plantar pressure mapping technology, like XSENSOR’s Intelligent Insoles, can assist in fine-tuning strength training by increasing one's ability to improve technique and biomechanics of an athlete. In this webinar you will learn how to interpret, understand, and use plantar pressure data in the context of strength development.

Antonio Robustelli is a Professional Sports Performance Consultant and Elite Coach based in Italy. His areas of expertise include sports technology, injury prevention, strength training programming, and speed development. Due to his adoption and deep knowledge of sports technology, he is widely sought-after and works with semi-professional, professional, and Olympic athletes worldwide in various sports applications.

Antonio serves as an Editorial Advisory Board Member for Lower Extremity Review, a US-based publication focusing on lower extremity biomechanics, sports medicine, and rehabilitation.
