SPRING Strength and Conditioning

By Todd M. Cambio | March 9, 2017

SPRING Strength and Conditioning is here!  The kids tested out in the shuttle run (4 Quarters), broad jump, pro agility, bench press, dead lift and did great!

Youth Strength and Conditioning

Test results showed:

  • Shuttle Run (test of anaerobic endurance) – on average showed a 3-4 second improvemnet which is a huge difference from day 1.
  • Broad Jump (test of leg power) – 2-3 inches of improvement.
  • Pro Agility (test of lateral speed and agility) – recorded lots of low 4 second runs (4.06, 4.07 and even our first sub-four second run at 3.98) so a .45 +/- improvement which is great!
  • Bench press (general upper body strength test) a solid 10 lb improvement across the board.
  • Dead Lift (test of overall strength) – focus was on form and lifting their own body weight as a goal.

SPRING S & C Session II will begin Week of March 6th and will run through the week of April 16th.  Right up until this kids April vacation.  

This session will focus more on strength training, running mechanics and of course injury prevention.  Learning proper loaded lifts such as dead lifts, front squats, shoulder press, rows and bench press utilizing kettlebells and barbells.

Focus is on strength and explosive power to peak for spring sport season!

**Because of all the snow days, I will reduce the price for the SPRING Program to make up for missed days.**

WAIVER and CONTACT Information Form

I am working on getting the PayPal working again too.  I can simply send you an invoice if you want to pay by credit card.

SIDE NOTE: I cannot prorate for missed sessions just way too many variables and this is already a discounted price.

BUT if you need a reference, it is $20 a session if you do not sign up at the discounted rate.

ALSO,

I want to touch on the topic of footwear for S&C.  I am a very strong believer in having people wear hard soled minimum style sneakers. Examples include: indoor soccer shoes or Converse Chuck Taylors.

Quick explanation is that most people wear soft squishy running sneakers that do a ton of damage to your ankles, knees and hips when training like an athlete.

What running sneakers do when training in them (Bottom) compared to solid training sneakers (top): 

Proper footwear is essential to reduce injury and improve performance.
