The Olympic strength and Conditioning staff was excited to make more additions in the Isoinertial training department by installing upright pulley flywheel systems. The staff was also involved in the monthly Sport Performance forum, led by Terry Noonan, Director of the Sport Performance Department titled, NCAA: Enhancing a Culture of Safety in College Athletics. Our very own, Coach Renteria spoke at a University of Iowa Sports Medicine clinic for college and high school soccer coaches regarding injury mitigation and load management for soccer players. Additionally, Coach Renteria led a curriculum for the interns regarding programming within the weight room. Our interns began their exercise progressions on both squat and deadlift.

Finally, the staff was happy to host the Big Ten Commissioner, Kevin Warren for a work out with Rowing, Volleyball and Men’s Golf in the Carver weight room - Thank you for stopping in Commissioner Warren!
