Beyond Talent: a Multidisplinary Look at Athletics
FULL PROGRAM FOR FRI, SAT, SUN
Boston University Athletic Enhancement
Center (www.bu.edu/aec) and
Boston University's Sargent College Clinical Centers
The goal of the BU Athletic Enhancement Center
is to work with athletes on every aspect of their training to ensure
they develop the physical and mental foundation required for better
performance in their sport. This is accomplished through coaching
and training in advanced strength and conditioning techniques,
uniquely integrated with mental, nutritional and sports medical
principles. Programming is provided in either an individual or small
group format. The coach to athlete ratio is kept purposely low to
assure optimal instruction for our athletes.
Beyond Talent, a Multidisplinary Look at
members of the Boston University's Sargent College Clinical Centers
will discuss a complete approach to athletic excellence: physical
conditioning, injury prevention, and sport psychology. Learn how
workouts for athletes must go beyond just doing "cardio." Gain
insights into the role of alignment and muscular imbalances in
sports injury and how equipment might prevent nagging injuries.
Ultimately, figure out what "mental toughness" is and its role in
practice, play, and excellent performances.
