This camp is designed to teach young men and women, ages 13 to 18, the same strength and power training exercises and concepts that are used by our 49er Athletes. Campers will learn to execute a variety of performance-based weightlifting and strength training exercises with proper technique. In addition to acquiring these advanced movement skills, campers will also learn the scientific basis for performance-based training. Proper weight room etiquette AND SAFETY will be emphasized on a daily basis.

Pre-Conditioning Camp - This portion of the camp is not mandatory, but it will help prepare the athlete for the Intensive Instructional Phase. The Pre-Conditioning Camp meets 3 times/week (M, W, F) for 1 hour. Athletes must be registered for one of the 5-week camps to participate in the Pre-Conditioning Camp.

Intensive Instruction Camp (5 weeks) - This 5-week intensive instructional camp is a unique opportunity for young athletes to work with a Division 1 strength and conditioning professional. Campers will receive in-depth instruction in a variety of performance-based free-weight lifting exercises, most, if not all of which are not taught at the high school level. Emphasis is placed on safety, skill development and scientific rationale for the various exercises. Six sessions are being offered at 3 different times in the morning.

Post-Instruction Camp - After the 5-week instructional camp, attendees may choose to continue on to more advanced levels of training under the supervision of LBSU's strength and conditioning staff. Each session is 1 hour in duration.
