Connor wanted to go to the next level. We tailored a program to help him get there.
I heard about AFS through a few friends and coaches at Saline High School. I’m a Senior running back and also run track at Saline. Before starting at AFS, my goals were to improve my balance and agility, and to become stronger overall so that I could play at the collegiate level. Since the start of my program at AFS, I’ve improved ankle stability, become more explosive, and have increased overall strength.
Since Starting at AFS
My 40 yard dash time has decreased from 4.79 to 4.63sec, my bench press increased from 225 to 295lbs, squat from 325 to 420lbs, my power clean went from 215 to 295lbs, and my 20 yard shuttle decreased from 4.52 to 4.12 seconds.
What I’ve Learned
My Advice to Other Athletes
Start training as soon as possible, and keep a workout schedule you are able to do year round to maintain and improve your strength. Improving strength through resistance training for any sport is never a bad thing! Also be sure to have a plan for how you budget your time. I struggled with budgeting time between training, sleeping and studying, so stay on top of that! Luckily I had AFS to help me keep everything in order.
