Wayne Moore epitomizes everything the Athlete Activation System represents. Moore is an example of the strength, speed, and power AAS promotes with all athletes. He sat down with Peter Ingleton to chat about the four years he has spent at Laylor Performance Systems building himself into that athlete with Clance Laylor.

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

My name is Wayne Moore, I play football at McMaster University and I am a running back. I am going into my fourth year.

How did you first hear about Laylor Performance Systems (LPS) and the Athlete Activation System (AAS)?

When I was in High School, I had a teacher that was a relative of PK Subban, and he always told me that PK was always elevating his game while training with Clance Laylor. He told me that it would be a great idea to come over and train with Clance!

How many summers have you trained with Clance?

This has been my fourth summer at LPS.

What were your first impressions about AAS?

Its definitely a shock to to your system. Nothing my body has undergone before at all.
It is a very intense and professional environment that forces you to lock in psychologically. If you put in the work demanded in this system the results are bound to occur.

Do you enjoy the training atmosphere at Laylor Performance Systems?

100% I love it. It is something that I cannot describe but it is consistently 100% effort. If there is one thing that I have learned from Clance is that a lot of it is not only physical, but mental as well.

What have you learned about training since you have been involved in the AAS program?

Specifically, I believe that it is important to have good form. I have learned that it is important to have form first before lifting heavier loads. It is not about how much weight you lift, it is about technique first. You can lift heavy weight all you want, but if I cannot lift that weight with speed, then it will not have a good effect on my performance. In my sport

[football], I need to have the ability to exploit my strength, power and speed.

What are some of the areas you have improved most since you began to train with Clance at LPS?

Most importantly my explosiveness, especially at my position as a Running Back. My strength has also significantly improved. Having that explosiveness is going to be very important for me at my position. I have to be able to hit the hole without any hesitation!

Has your speed been affected by your training?

It has been crazy. Explosiveness is especially key but I really need to be able to hold that when I break away. Maintaining my speed is vitally important and I know that I can do that now.

What are some of your performance indicators in regard to your lifts?

My max squat is 501 pounds, bench press is 340 pounds, and my best clean is 330 pounds. My standing broad jump personal best is 10’2”. The most important thing is that I do not just come here and train. Clance has the system set in place that keeps my goals in mind and allows me to maintain focused on my goals every day that I come in here.
