"Gary is correct.  Many high schoolers come to college with sound fundamentals, good mental grasp of their sport, competitive spirit, etc., and just need to be "trained up a little" (Blind Side).  And as the strength coach said,…"

getting a job

5 years ago I embarked on a career path change. Having tuaght karate for 20 years, been an employed actor for 30 years, and having then begun as a personal trainer, I decided that collegiate level athletics was where I wanted to be. Consequently, I pursued my Master's degree in Sports Conditioning, became CSCS certified, and began an internship at the local college. The college had not previously had a Strength and Conditioning program. My whole goal was to get in on the ground floor to secure…See More

Box Squat Instruction with Louie Simmons

"In most athletic activities, the posterior chain plays a major role. Any sprint move in any sport begins with a pull of the forward striding leg.  Also, re. the shortsop "starting" with a base that wide, no.  But as they move…"

music in the collegiate team weight room

Just wondering, among the strength coaches out there, and more specifically, those who work with WHOLE TEAMS in the collegiate setting (only because training individuals even in a strength coach capacity is a different animal in so many ways), about music in your weight rooms.

Research definitely indicates the positive effect music can have on energy in the gym, but because music tastes vary so widely and are very individual, choosing music in a TEAM room is an interesting…

Road blocks

As an assistant strength coach, I don't deal directly with most of the coaching staff or administration (AD, Compliance officer, etc.). That's the head strength coach's job and I don't envy certain aspects of it. But it does give me the opportunity to see certain road blocks in advance and  to think ahead of how I might handle many of the obstacles a fledgling program might face.

There are many approaches to strength coaching, but all have the same key goals – prepare the athletes for the physical rigors of competition.  This includes everything from foundational strength, sport specific conditioning, injury prevention and pre-habilitation, to team spirit building and psychological preparation, and many more things in between. 



But at the core of it all is strength and conditioning, as the job title indicates.  Studies repeatedly demonstrate that during…
