This is a high school strength and conditioning segment that includes 3 days of Weight Lifting M/W/F and 2 days of Speed and Agility (T/TH).
Muscular hypertrophy is an adaptation characterized by an increase in the cross-sectional diameter of muscle fibers that occurs as a response to those fibers being recruited to create increased levels of tension. More specifically, it is a function of protein balance (synthesis vs. breakdown) and consists of three mechanisms: muscle tension, muscle damage, and metabolic stress.
At this level strength is the building block for power, speed, speed, and endurance, reducing the risk, severity, and incidence of injury. Our goal is to develop sound core and lower body strength through two- or one-legged squat techniques. The development of strength is the basis for optimizing lower body superiority. We will use methods not limited to squat jumps, multi-response plyometric, banded or chain squatting, and heavy partial movements in progressions throughout the offseason. Consistency is very important for maximal results.
