The concept of interval training has exploded in recent years with the popularity of CrossFit™, P90X™, and other high intensity training programs. However, interval training can also compliment the student athlete preparing for regular season games and peaking at the end of the season. It is important to minimize the effects of fatigue while building and maintaining muscle mass which allows student athletes to increase strength, power, and agility. Participants will learn about the concepts and tools needed to develop safe and effective interval training programs that support national standards. Program elements and sample programs will be presented to illustrate how to create a new program or integrate components into an existing program.
