Consider the ways a Strength and Conditioning Coach Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

 
1. Strength: Depending on the needs of your sport, you should weight train 2-4 times a week to improve your strength
 
2. Flexibility: Perform a dynamic warm-up prior to and a static stretching routine at the conclusion of each lifting/conditioning session to increase flexibility and range of motion.
 
3. Power: Incorporate plyometric drills and the Olympic lifts (or their variations) into your program weekly in order to enhance power/explosiveness.
 
4. Improved Body Composition: Along with an appropriate diet based on your goals, include aerobic exercises (running, biking, etc.) on a consistent basis to help reduce body fat.
 
5. Speed / Agility / Conditioning: Depending on the needs of your sport, you should perform speed, agility and/or conditioning sessions 2-5 times a week to increase your speed, agility and overall fitness.
 
A strength and conditioning coach can provide a detailed plan to improve on these goals. At Ohio State, it is backed by a variety of studies on the mechanism and prevention of, as well as recovery from, musculoskeletal and other physiologic injuries and illnesses.
