    Session Descriptions
    In this lecture we will discuss the antiquated model of physical preparation; define and dissect the training process into its component parts; discuss physical preparation for football; remove constraints on preparatory periods; and talk about bleeding tactical preparation with physical preparation.
    Rotational athletes, namely baseball and softball, have unique demands due to the one sided, as well as rotational nature when compared to other team sports. This presentation will cover various aspects of mobilization, strength, stability, and injury preventative measures for the primary areas (thoracic spine, core, pelvis) involved in rotational athletes.
    This presentation will begin with background information including: terminology, what the movements train, variations, and derivatives. A brief explanation of the difference between the sport and utilizing the movements in a training program will follow, and the applicability for personal/partner/and small group training will be discuss more in detail. The presentation will conclude with a hands on portion.
    Dieting for a physique, whether as a competitive athlete or fitness client, presents multiple unique challenges that all circle back to reaching very low body fat levels – a very rigid diet, mental stressors, performance and hormone decrements, and more. Traditionally, expectations are not accurate. In the scientific literature there are many arguments about what is best for preparing for a physique competition or for achieving common fitness goals. This presentation will dive into these specific challenges of body transformation (or body recomposition) by using both the current literature and practical experience and applications.
    Implementing dynamic warm-ups to build balance, coordination, and mobility. Proper application of these techniques will improve movement and performance in athletes.
    Considerations for introducing agility, speed, strength, conditioning, and movement to youth athletes. The aim is to build a strong foundation that will enhance athletic performance and improvement for years to come.
    In this presentation we will highlight common practices and traditions across the industry; detail current theories, research, and data on coaching and motivation techniques; and discuss practical strategies to implement within sessions.
