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:
