Sports Specific Strength and conditioning is different than a fitness class or personal training session because exercises are “specific” to the sport. S&C training is much more than just lifting weights and jumping up and down.
S&C IS PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT TRAINING
S&C covers your entire physical development and what is needed to improve your physical performance.
Researches over the years has demonstrated that you can get better in your sport without the need to go out to run more, cycle longer, swim harder, play more golf etc… S & C place a great infancy in preventing/rehabbing injuries as well!

Strength training is just one piece of the jigsaw because although people might only use the term “strength”, you are not actually just training for strength and
a lot of the time you don’t need to use weights!
A good “PERIODIZED” training plan might involve flexibility training, plyometric training, agility sessions, speed sessions, recovery sessions and different training phases following different training phases of your sport. Planning a S&C program is based around your sport so you are at your “BEST” (you peak) at the right time – for your race/sportive/match/game etc – or just to become better in what you do!
