Brijesh Patel Training System – Reducing Injury in College Sports – Program Design for Athletes
In this session, Brijesh Patel describes the training philosophy and practices he uses with the athletes at Quinnipiac University. This includes the thinking behind his program design, as well as how he works with his athletes and teams.
“Volume magnifies everything. If we add volume to a bad motor pattern, we are asking for trouble and for overuse injuries. At the Division I level there’s a lot of volume done between practice and individual workouts, strength training, conditioning, film sessions and more. Add in the stress of school, significant others, partying—these are a lot of different types of stressors placed on athletes, and we need to ensure they can handle those positions and make sure we can keep them as healthy as possible.”~Brijesh Patel
