Strength and Conditioning
The University at Albany Strength and Conditioning department is committed to improving athletic performance on the individual and team levels. The department focuses on the proper development and combination of strength, power, speed, agility, mobility, conditioning and body composition to enhance performance in all athletic arenas. It is the goal and challenge of this staff for each athlete to be in a continual state of growth throughout their collegiate athletic career so that they individually, and collectively as a team, can reach their maximum athletic potential. Our department works closely with both the coaches and sports medicine staff to help us achieve this goal.
The Strength and conditioning department is housed in a spacious 7200 square feet varsity strength complex. The strength complex consists of two separate rooms. The weight room is 3600 square feet and is a fully equipped Olympic-style free weight room. Its efficient design allows for large teams, or several teams, to workout at a single time. The skills room is another 3600 square feet adjacent to the weight room that offers a full line of equipment to enhance agility and quickness. It is equipped with plyometric boxes, jump ropes, medicine balls, bikes, cones and other various speed building devices. The strength complex is for varsity athletic team use only and is supervised by two full time coaches, one graduate assistant and three student interns.
