ATH 917 - Power Training for Sports

Andrew Herrick, PhD, CHES

Optimal power—the ideal combination of speed and strength—is the difference between a good athlete and a great athlete. This course provides all the tools to build sport-specific power and allow you to attain the highest level of performance. Every sport has unique power demands. Whether it’s explosive running and jumping, a quick burst out of the starting block, or contacting and moving an opponent, developing the right proportion of strength and speed is crucial to optimizing athletic power. With the revolutionary speed–strength–power continuum discussed in this course, students can determine the ideal mix of strength-based and speed-based power required for their sport. This course will introduce the high school coach or teacher to training programs designed for maximum results that may be applied as presented or customized to individual needs using the seven-step program design process.
