Strength & Conditioning - Ohlone College Renegades Men's Basketball
Our program prides itself on being bigger, stronger, and faster than our opponents. With the up-tempo style of play Coach Peterson has implemented, it is imperative for our players to be in peak physical condition.
We are fortunate to have a private weight room specifically for athletics. We also utilize the newly renovated student fitness center.
The Ohlone Fitness Center is located in Building 9 and is reserved solely for Ohlone students.
The 3,000 square ft. Fitness Center includes areas for anaerobic and aerobic training.
The players have access to the best equipment available in order to maximize their training efforts:
- Free weights, including four squat racks and four bench areas.
- 20 nautilus machines, each isolating a specific muscle group.
- Four state-of-the-art elliptical machines.
- Several aerobic training machines.
- A new plyometric jump trainer.
- A muscle stimulating ballistic trampoline rebounder.
Ohlone College is one of the few junior colleges in California to employ a full-time athletic trainer.

Commitment to Strength Training
Unlike most junior college programs that merely “encourage” their athletes to lift on their own, we insist on the following:
Mandatory lifting four days a week as a team. Year round.
All weight lifting programs designed, implemented, and monitored by the Ohlone College coaching and athletic training staff.
Weight program is sport specific and three pronged: Injury Prevention, Explosion and Stabilization.
Periodically we test the development of our players’ conditioning by monitoring their maximum bench press, body weight, and percent body fat. The results of our commitment to Strength Training are shown in this chart from the 2004-2005 season:
