How to prepare your athlete for collegiate athletics

Collegiate athletics is a dream many young athletes have but few obtain.

Most don’t realize how demanding the non-sport activities, primarily the training regime they go through in the weight room, can be.

We want to help these young athletes prepare for that portion of their preparation.

Here’s the reality: all levels (Division I, II, and III), all sports and all genders participate in a strength program at the collegiate level.

Further, all the programs include barbell training: squat, deadlift, bench, press, power clean, bent rows etc. (male and female)

So, if we make it our mission to teach young athletes how to train, we need to prepare athletes by mastering these movements and instructing on how to load a bar to do technique work versus power training versus hypertrophy versus sub max/max strength.

The outcome: our athletes return back at break reporting having been used as the example of how to perform the lifts and entered pre-season as one of the fittest athletes on the team.

When we achieve this with a college bound athlete, the opportunities for sustained success are numerous and they will have the ability to do tremendous things!

If you’d like more information on how to help your young athlete prepare for collegiate athletics, please reach out and I’d be happy to help:
