Strength/Circuit Training: Mid April to the end of May is a good time to start a strength training program. This can be either a circuit strength program or in the weight room (with guidance from a coach or mentor). Strength building, this is a great time to get your strength on and feel strong going into the summer. The is a personal goal. Look at your strength results from last year and try to improve on them from last year. Suggested circuits will be posted soon.
