What is Strength and Conditioning?

Strength and Conditioning is more than just lifting weights… It involves any activity used to enhance or improve performance and reduce the risk of injury. These activities include, running, jumping, agility, core and endurance training and are made up of a series of exercises which are specifically designed to target certain muscle groups and movement types.
