Become an iron athlete
The philosophy behind the 925 Iron Athlete Strength & Conditioning Program is to develop a "full body" athlete by focusing on all of the physical and mental aspects of player development. It must be understood that every aspect of the Iron Athlete Program has a very specific role in developing strength, explosiveness, speed, flexibility, balance, conditioning and mental toughness. The Iron Athlete Program is designed specifically for kids ages 13-18.

The Strength Training portion of our summer Iron Athlete program is designed to develop your overall strength, flexibility, body control and explosiveness by concentrating on quick and explosive lifts. It will be important that you understand how to calculate your percentages (percentages of your maximum lifts) on the core lifts (deadlifts, squat, hang cleans, etc.) in order to maximize your training.
Maintaining flexibility MUST be a constant element to an effective strength and conditioning program. When an athlete is not able to put a body joint through the proper range of motion, it can limit performance while increasing the risk of injury.
Conditioning should be cycled with light, medium and heavy days to avoid over-training. It will be important that you come into your next season already in great condition from our Iron Athlete program. We would rather you spend your preseason focusing on fundamentals, schemes and execution rather than overcoming a missed opportunity over the summer to become well-conditioned, well-rounded athletes.
The Speed Development portion of the Iron Athlete program is critical in developing the fundamentals in effective and efficient movement. Each drill and exercise must be done at a maximum level.
You are capable to do more than you think you can! Our Iron Athlete program will challenge your body beyond its comfort level. Expect to hit barriers and be prepared to overcome the adversity and temptation to cut corners. You will develop the ability and capacity to push through barriers created by pain and fatigue. This mental toughness will carry onto the practice and game fields as well.
You are what you put in your body. Eating properly can enhance your physical development while developing a healthy lifestyle. You will be coached on proper nutrition and how to dial it in as an athlete.
