Advancements in software and hardware tools are helping coaches and athletes train their brains, enhance their intelligence and create competitive advantages that can have just as dramatic an impact on overall athletic performance as traditional strength and conditioning programs that primarily address musculoskeletal optimization.
These conditioning concepts have strong physiological rationale, and are currently used with college-level athletes at several programs.
The athletic performance staff at SMU created a culture that empowers coaches to be great, and the team’s on-field results are starting to follow suit.
The following primary lifts and concentration concepts can take student-athletes a long way in the weight room and on the playing field.

The coach asks, “How can we win more games?” The strength coach asks, “How can I get my players to perform at their peak?” There is one answer to these questions: Zephyr™ Performance Systems.
Coaches set athletic performance goals, demonstrate how players must reach those goals, and hold them accountable for their results. It’s that simple.
