Explore your physical potential this summer by enrolling in the Strength and Conditioning camp at San Domenico School. Participants will learn proper weight lifting technique, develop skills to improve strength, power and muscle endurance, and engage in conditioning activities that are both fun and challenging. During the first week, campers will learn to execute basic weight training lifts to develop muscles of the upper and lower body. Outside of the weight room campers will receive an introduction to plyometrics (training for powerful movements like jumping), engage in activities to improve running speed and learn how to facilitate active muscle recovery through stretching routines. In the second week campers will develop a training plan according to their unique physical goals and execute the plan with support from their peers and the coaching staff. All experience levels are welcome!
