Power Training program focuses on strength and power for athletes
SARANAC LAKE – Adirondack Health’s Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine Department is offering a Power Training program for area high school athletes looking to stay one step ahead of the competition.
Athletics are meant to be fun. It’s much more fun when athletes feel quick and strong. Strength and power are important for speed, and speed and agility are essential for athletic success. Power Training teaches athletes the proper exercises and techniques to achieve gains in strength and power. Athletes are instructed in the proper technique and progression for traditional strengthening exercises such as squats, bench press and rows, as well as Olympic-style lifts including the clean and jerk and snatch.
Two programs are offered: High School Power Training for 14-18 year olds (high school freshmen through seniors) and Junior Power Training for 11-13 year olds (seventh and eighth graders). The programs take place from 3-4 p.m. for Junior Power Training and from 4-5:30 for High School Power Training on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, from June 8 through July 29.
