This strength & conditioning program was created for athletes of all ages, male and female, seeking to become faster/stronger, more explosive, and, most importantly, less susceptible to injury. Athletes will learn everything from proper deceleration and landing mechanics, to correct squatting technique under resistance. Each training day has a different focus, so it is important that you are able to attend both sessions every week.
There are one class per week or two classes per week options for this program.
If you are able to do the twice/week program, it is suggested you register for those classes to get the best results from your training.
