Strength Training Series
Article By: John Mahr, B.A., M.A.
This cycle is based upon building a foundation of internal joint/tendon and muscle strength, as well as endurance. All percentages are based upon maximum lifts in the Clean & Jerk, Bench Press, Competition Deadlift and Squat. This program stage is based on the principles of German Volume training, but is designed with intricate variations for the high school athlete. The main emphasis here has been shown to be "injury prevention" and laying a "base" of muscular strength development and technical mastery.

Strength and Power Training Outside the Weightroom
Article By Don Babbit: Track & Field Coach
University of Georgia, Athens, GA
With the beginning of the track and field season drawing near, high school track coaches may find themselves in a situation where they are unable to condition their whole squad in the weightroom. In many cases, the weightroom may be too small, while the track and field squads very large. In other cases, sports such as football may also be using the weightroom at the desired time making it hard to squeeze in a whole workout for the track and field team.

Strength Training for Throwers
Article By Bill Pendleton: Esperanza High School
Without question, weight training has to be a major component in the development of a successful thrower. A skilled athlete can be a good thrower without weight training, but that athlete will never reach his/her potential without weighttraining. Whatever a muscle can do, a stronger, faster, more flexible muscle can do better.
