STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

Strength and Conditioning at Guy Gold Performance Centre

Strength and Conditioning at its simplest form is the practical application of sports science to enhance movement quality. It is founded on evidence-based research, anatomy and the physiology of exercise. 

 

This is not just lifting heavy weights. Strength and Conditioning is an approach, not just a set of exercises. Lifting weights may often be a key part of a strength and conditioning programme, but it’s just one of many tools that can be used to improve quality of movement, performance and overall health.

 

The approach incorporates the entire development of a person and what is needed to improve their unique physical performance. A well-rounded programme will include mobility work, plyometrics, core-stability, endurance training, speed and agility, as well as strength.

 

One common misconception about Strength and Conditioning training is that it makes you look ‘too big’. Strength training is suitable for people of all ages -and especially the older generations who may be experiencing weakening of the bones and muscle loss.

 

The benefits of a Strength and Conditioning programme or training include:

 

  • Injury prevention

  • Improved performance

  • Stronger bones

  • Enhanced general health

  • Improved posture

  • Faster recovery from injury

  • Reduction in pain

  • Increased muscular strength, metabolism and mood
