What is Strength and Conditioning?
Strength and Conditioning (S&C) is the selection and development of dynamic /static exercises used to improve physical performance. Whilst it originally benefited athletes it is
now widely used in both the sporting world and more generally.
Strength and Conditioning at Aberystwyth University:
Currently a variety of AberSU sports clubs, including Men’s Rugby and Women’s netball, do utilise strength and conditioning sessions at their own cost. Currently, an hour long session at the sports centre, led by a trained instructor, costs £50.
The Student’s Union trials a weekly Strength and Conditioning session run by an instructor for clubs to be able to make use of. These sessions should either be provided free or for a nominal charge. They should be open to all but priority
given to BUCS sports clubs.
If successful, the Student’s Union should investigate continuing to provide the sessions beyond the trial period.
