    Olympic Sports Testing Records

    Virginia Tech’s Olympic sports programs are designed based upon the athletes’ current level of overall physical development and the physical components necessary to be successful in their sport. Virginia Tech’s programs are designed to first build a foundation of strength necessary for improvements in power, speed, agility and endurance. A strong emphasis is also placed upon trying to prevent injuries that are common to each sport. As athletes advance, special exercises or more sport-specific exercises are introduced to meet the physical demands of the sport. Virginia Tech’s belief is there is a time and place for every type of training.

    Testing is used to evaluate various components of fitness such as muscular strength, muscular endurance, power, speed, body composition and flexibility. Record boards are used to motivate athletes and to evaluate the strength and conditioning programs.

    Here is Virginia Tech’s Olympic sports record board for each of the various lifts tested:
