Nutritional Considerations for Training the High School & Collegiate Athlete
by Monica Fowler, MS, RD

Nutrition recommendations for adolescent & young adult strategies must be individualized to meet their unique needs. Often macronutrients and calorie recommendations are difficult to meet due to the young athletes lack of nutrition knowledge. Nutrition strategies must include education regarding basic nutrition information, time & money management and basic self-care information.

Black Box vs. White Box: How to Have a Meaningful Impact Outside Wins and Losses
by Collin Lawless, CSCS

What is your value to your organization? Can you quantify it? In the collegiate setting, how much time do you REALLY get to do what is appropriate for true athletic improvement? This presentation will give listeners a better understanding of what it means to create a vision for their programs, sell athletic performance to athletes and sport coaches and how to have a truly meaningful impact within their organizations that can be measured and quantified.

Bodybuilding vs Power Lifting: Pros and Cons
by Stan Efferding, CSCS

During this presentation, Stan will share his vast experiences in both the bodybuilding and power lifting worlds. This discussion will include the effects of both on injuries, diet, and longevity.  Power lifting, which focuses on the supremacy of load, has tremendous benefits in terms of CNS recruitment for increased strength and improved bone mineral density. However it may increase the risk for injury and reduce longevity in lifting.
On the other hand, bodybuilding focuses on muscular hypertrophy and body composition, through training volume. However, traditional bulking and cutting cycles may have long term metabolic consequences.
