PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy of the University of Richmond Strength and Conditioning Program is to train the student-athletes to improving athletic performance while minimizing the risk of injury. The strength-training program is based primarily on developing power and speed through the use of the Olympic lifts and supplementary lifts. The majority of exercises are free-weight and or ground-based, multi-joint oriented.

In the weight room the student-athletes workout in a safe environment, and receive personalized instruction as to the technique of every exercise. Each athlete has a personalized workout that takes into account their sport, strength levels, and seasonal needs. Throughout the year each team will do periodic testing to see the gains in strength and fitness levels that each individual has made. Along with strength training in the weight room, every team will do speed, agility, plyometric, flexibility and conditioning work in various facilities.
