We at ASAP~Athletic Strength And Power, extend our condolences to the family, friends, and teammates of Chris Henry. A popular trainee at The Workout at Covington, Chris always took time to talk to athletes in training, parents and supporters at The Workout. Occasionally, you could see Chris signing an autograph or two for some neighborhood kids near our training facility in Covington. We'll remember him, especially in his comeback as he strived to return to one of the things that he loved the most.... NFL football.
The strength training & conditioning program needs adjustments as teams prepare for their respective bowl games. Head coaches...strength coaches...all involved examine their schedule closely as they try to have their teams healthy and up to full strength by game time. Sometimes, the dates between the last game played and the bowl game can reach close to fifty days!

We'll get an inside look at both squads preparing for the"grandaddy of them all" and report live (pre-game) from the sidelines through our ASAP~TV Network. (no live video reports or feeds are transmittable during the game with the exception of ABC-TV Sports) Be sure to follow us on Twitter also...for all of our updates.

We receive hundreds of emails with questions about our Summer Interval Training Program. Here's a little information regarding that specific program.
These sessions are usually sprinkled with a blend of professional
(NFL), College (Ohio State, Purdue, Boston College, etc) and High
School athletes. Many of these athletes, both men and women, are elite
and in exceptional physical condition. Our trainees are under the
guidance of Ted Lambrinides , ASAP Program Director of ASAP @ The River's Edge and The Workout @ Covington....just in the shadows of Paul Brown Stadium, across the river
from Cincinnati, Ohio. Our training sessionsalways begin with a Dynamic Warm-up. This would include many or all of the following exercises:
Half Speed 50yd jogs
Back Pedals 4x10yds
Three step walking Lunge w/twist 1x 15yds and return
3 step Squat grab back of ankles...repeat ....1x 15 yds and return
walking side lunge
walk 3 steps: hands to turf: alternate legs back as high as possible
Then, we progress to the real deal.... the heart of the workout. The
Interval Training Segment. Don't eat very much at all prior to
attending these sessions and bring plenty of chilled sports drinks!!Click the thumbnail for a larger view of the photoThis type of training session is best completed on a lined athletic or football field. To run a "Gasser", start on the sideline, sprinting across the field and then touching the opposite sideline with your foot....and then returning back to the original sideline...touch that sideline with your foot and repeat. One Gasser is equal to approximately 213 yards of accelerating and decelerating. A half Gasser is a sprint across the field and back.
6x full gassers (1280yds)
9x half gassers (960yds) 10x 10yd backward runs (100yds) shufflescarioca
agility ladder 3x 200 yd shuttles (down the field and back) 60 secs till next shuttle starts (600yds)mirror drills...+ 60sec squat
That's all!!! Time to go home.... serious rest may include a nice nap to help the recovery.
