Abstract

TESTING IS A BIG PART OF MOST COLLEGIATE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAMS AND IS AS COMMON, IN MOST PROGRAMS, AS BARBELLS AND DUMBBELLS. TYPICALLY, TESTING IS USED TO EVALUATE THE PROGRESS OF ATHLETES, TO MEASURE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE TRAINING PROGRAM, AND TO MOTIVATE THE ATHLETES INVOLVED IN THE TRAINING PROGRAM. OUR PANEL OF 3 EXPERTS EXPLAINS HOW THEY PERFORM TESTING WITH THEIR ATHLETES IN THEIR RESPECTIVE COLLEGIATE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAMS.
