    Bring your strongest effort to the field, court, or mat. Strength for Sports Performance will show you how to build a program for your needs, your sport, and your goals.

    Through a series of self-assessments, you will identify areas of improvement and establish a baseline for your training regimen. Then incorporate functional strength exercises designed for the movement patterns, muscle contractions, and energy demands of a variety of sports. In addition, learn to use exercises with nonstandard equipment, such as chains and tires, to complement your standard program with variable- and dynamic-resistance training.

    Developed by Allen Hedrick, head strength and conditioning coach at Colorado State University at Pueblo, Strength for Sports Performance will help you maximize training time for peak performance in competition.

    About the Author

    Allen Hedrick, M.A., CSCS*D, FNSCA, coach practitioner, was named the first-ever head strength and conditioning coach at Colorado State University at Pueblo in September 2009. He earned his bachelor’s degree from California State University at Chico and his master’s degree from California State University at Fresno. For three years he worked as a strength and conditioning coach at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. He then worked as the assistant strength and conditioning coach at the United States Air Force Academy, also in Colorado Springs, for three years before being named the head strength and conditioning coach at the academy, a position he held for nine years. In that position Hedrick was responsible for the strength and conditioning programs for football and volleyball while overseeing the academy’s entire strength and conditioning program.

    Hedrick then moved to the National Strength and Conditioning Association's headquarters, also in Colorado Springs, as the head strength and conditioning coach and later as education coordinator. Hedrick stayed in that position until moving into his current position at CSU-Pueblo.

    During his career, Hedrick has worked with a variety of athletes, from elementary school children to professionals and Olympic medalists (speed skater Bonnie Blair and Greco-Roman wrestler Matt Ghaffari). Hedrick’s work has appeared in numerous publications covering diverse topics, including the best-selling Dumbbell Training (Human Kinetics, 2015). He has also produced numerous DVDs on topics related to strength and conditioning, including Strength for Sports Performance (Human Kinetics, 2007). Hedrick has spoken at various conferences and clinics worldwide. In 2003 Hedrick was selected by his peers as the National Strength and Conditioning Association's Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year.
