Head Strength And Conditioning Coach Brijesh Patel To Speak At NSCA Massachusetts State Clinic

HAMDEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac University Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Brijesh Patel will be a featured guest at the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Massachusetts State Clinic on Saturday, April 25, 2015. Patel has been asked to speak about Understanding and Implementing Special Strength Training Exercises at Fuller Auditorium on the campus of Springfield College.

Special Strength Training is a term used by the Eastern Bloc countries in the preparation of their athletes. It’s often confused and misunderstood and not many coaches know how to implement the principles into their programming. All in attendance will learn how Coach Patel implements this into the athletic development programs for his athletes at Quinnipiac.

Patel, who came to Quinnipiac in 2008, has transformed Quinnipiac’s Strength and Conditioning Department into a top tier NCAA program. Patel primarily works with the men’s and women’s basketball and ice hockey teams at Quinnipiac, but also oversees the strength and conditioning development for all 21 varsity sports at Quinnipiac.

Patel often shares his expertise at conventions, making appearances at several NSCA events over the years. He has been featured as a guest speaker at several prestigious regional industry functions including the NSCA Connecticut State Clinic in Farmington, Conn., the NSCA Pennsylvania State Strength and Conditioning Clinic at Juniata College, "Be The Best" Baseball Clinic in Cherry Hill, N.J., Mike Boyle's Functional Strength Coach Seminar and the Be Athletic Performance Symposium. Patel was a speaker at the first and second Mike Boyle Winter Seminars and has also spoken at Springfield College.
