HAMDEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac University Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Brijesh Patel has been asked to speak at the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s (NSCA) Connecticut State Clinic on Saturday, May 6 in Farmington, Conn. The program focuses on improving athletic performance and fitness through new research, injury prevention, program design and implementation.

The all-day event will consist of six guest speakers who will break down different aspects of athletic performance and fitness. William Kraemer will open with an informational session on new research and findings in the profession from noted scientists and coaches. Patel will then take the floor to discuss ways that stretching and warm-up activities have changed in the past 20 years in all sports. Gerard Martin closes the morning section with a lecture on relative intensity to describe types of strength we need for real, life movements.

After lunch, Emil Johnson then speaks about getting your teams into shape for the rigors of competition in a periodized program designed to enhance conditioning. Dan Boothby moves right into the maturational development of a young athlete and Perry Nickelston will wrap up with a hands-on presentation where participants will learn the Core 4 System of simple intervention strategies (joint, fascia, muscle, movement) to optimize function in the four most critical body regions for athletic excellence.
