Emory University is committed to helping its student-athletes maximize their athletics potential while decreasing the chance for injury. To that end, the University employs a full-time strength and conditioning coach. The S&C Coach works with each varsity coach to develop sport-specific, year-round training plans.
The principles of the strength and conditioning program is built around these four statements:
- Perform exercises with your feet on the ground
- Perform exercises with free weights
- Perform exercises that use multiple muscle groups that surround multiple joints
- Perform exercises with explosion, if you want to be an explosive athlete
Emory's S&C Coach is Ben Reynolds, who joined the staff in the fall of 2013 originally as the graduate assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach. Prior to Emory, Reynolds was an intern/volunteer coach at the University of South Carolina, working with football, track and field, and men’s soccer from August 2012 to June 2013.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from James Madison in 2012 and will obtain his master’s degree from Georgia State University in the spring of 2016.
Ben is an USAW club coach and CSCCa certified.
