SPORT SPECIFIC STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAMS
Sports differ widely in the levels of agility, speed, aerobic endurance, strength, power, flexibility, balance, and coordination required to excel. A strength and conditioning program should prioritize the importance of each of these athletic qualities and adjust the time dedicated to improving each of them accordingly. Also, an understanding of the metabolic demands imposed by the sport and the biomechanics of every task executed by the athlete is necessary. Our strength and conditioning programs take these factors into account when designing programs for individual athletes.
Age, maturation, body composition, muscular strength, cardiovascular endurance, state of heat acclimation, nutritional status, and psychological and emotional condition should all be considered when designing programs for different populations. In addition, the individual’s current medical status will also be addressed. Conditions such as diabetes, asthma, and high blood pressure as well as orthopedic concerns are also be factored into our exercise prescription.
