CHASE strength and conditioning is an evidence-based program designed around basic exercises (ground based and free weight training dominant), flexibility, movement screening, physical testing(power clean, squat, bench press) and the developmental level of the athlete. Equally important to physical preparation is the cultivation of an atmosphere that will accept no less than an elite level work ethic- a mental edge that can only be created through tenacity and vision.
The clean is compromised of 5 components.
Upward movement phase: first pull
Upward movement phase: transition scoop
Upward movement phase: second pull
Upward movement phase: catch
Downward movement phase
In strength training and fitness, the squat is a compound, full body exercise that trains primarily the muscles of the thighs, hips and glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, as well as strengthening the bones, ligaments and insertion of the tendons throughout the lower body. Squats are considered a vital exercise for increasing the strength and size of the legs as well as developing core strength.
The bench press is an upper body strength training exercise that consists of pressing a weight upwards from a supine position. The exercise works the pectoral major as well as supporting chest, arm, and shoulder muscles and the triceps.
