Goals & Objectives

Any athletic team can only be as strong as the strength and conditioning program that form its foundation. In order to perform at the optimal level for sustained periods, every athlete must maintain proper nutritional habits and rest patterns, and develop consistent year-round work routines. Oregon’s strength and conditioning staff places a premium on the efficiency of movement, defined as “getting from Point A to Point B with the maximum amount of force in the minimum amount of time.”

Oregon athletes have the opportunity to improve themselves with a year-round program that emphasizes speed, strength, flexibility and agility. Strength increases through dynamic and concentrated styles of resistance training using different cycles. Speed improves through loading and assisted speed training. Loading involves uphill running, towing and plyometrics, which employ the facets of jumping, sprinting and throwing. Assisted speed training involves a variety of sprint-assisted situations such as slight downgrades, pulleys, tubing and additional plyometric exercises.

Oregon’s philosophy on training high level athletes is a basic one with simple principles. Each individual athlete, for the 2, 3, 4 or 5 years of their academic/athletic career will establish specific goals and objectives for themselves. A commitment to “training” as a high level or elite competitor does, and as the overall program expresses…


    Long Term = Explosive Power
            - Functional Strength:
multi-joint, ground based, & 3-demensional
            - Directional Speed: quick & efficient changes in direction
            - Transitional Agility: movement combination's of flexion, extension, & rotation within one's own body

    Short Term = Power Endurance
            - Work Capacity:
            - Recoverability:
            - Stamina:
