Training the Executive Athlete

Chris Frankel
Functional Conditioning: Energy System Training

The way coaches approach the “conditioning” side of Strength and Conditioning is often lagging behind the “strength” side. How can we get to “functional conditioning” akin to how we have arrived at “functional training?” The first step is breaking the old paradigm of separate energy systems and appreciating how duration and intensity domains apply to intervals, sprints and endurance training. This session will cover relevant science and best coaching practices related to work capacity, interval training and repeated sprint ability. In addition, the connection between movement training and strength conditioning will be discussed.

Amanda Carlson-Phillips and Danielle Lafata
Modern Diet Trends: A Review of the Evidence

We are continually inundated with different ideals and beliefs on how we should fuel our bodies for weight loss and overall health. It makes it difficult to discern fact from fiction with so many different opinions on the proper way to eat. How could all these diets be true and absolute? During this time we will take a look at evidence supporting these diets and sort through the pros and the cons.
